You Have to update Wii VC transfers to play them on the pad. It's like $1-$1.50 to update NES and SNES games

Hey guys,

I've a got a steam key for shovel knight which I received for backing it on kickstarter, but I actually wanted on Wii U, so, I purchased it there. Would anyone want to buy my steam key, just looking for 10$ (5 off the current steam price).



Message me if you're interested!

Hey, sorry, I missed your reply somehow. I've heard S-Video produces a solid picture, but my TV doesn't seem to have the port

I'm looking to pay 50-60, tops. I know what they are priced at on eBay and Amazon, which makes my number probably look insulting. Although they really don't seem to sell at the higher price points. I am certain, though, if you were patient you could probably get 100-120 pretty easily, more if you're really patient. I'm just not willing to go that high, its a nice to have item for someone that plays their Cube frequently, but not must have.

@Lordnine -- Yeah, I know, but I'd have to get a GC capable Wii and I also use my GC for the Gameboy Player, so, its gonna be on my stand regardless. I'll likely have to deal with a redundant Wii (have a Wii U) on my stand.

@Scraper -- I don't think that is true. The ports are different and the the GC component cables contain the video encoder.

Hey guys,

Its a long shot, but I figured I'd ask. Is anyone here in possession of GameCube component cables and willing to let them go for a reasonable price? My brother hocked all my GameCube stuff, and I'm slowly putting my collection back together, but I also still play pretty frequently, so, definitely trying to get another set of component cables.



Thanks!

Yeah, the surface pro looks like it will be a really nice alternative/replacement for the underwhelming "ultra book" market. Don't blame ya!
10  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: MacBook Pro 15 w/ Retina display + games (updated price) on: December 22, 2012, 10:27:15 AM
Updated the price. $2550 now + shipping. I forgot I got a student discount, so, knocked that extra 200 off the price.

By the way, I know I don't post here often, but I read everyday. And Ron knows me, we did martial arts together briefly in Arizona under Master Roberts many, many years ago. Just in case I seem like a scambot or something.

Oh, and I would also be okay with a trade + cash. I'm specifically looking for a 2012 MacBook Air with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and 2.0GHz Intel Dual-Core Core i7 That + $900 (OBO)
12  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / MacBook Pro 15 w/ Retina display + games [SOLD] on: December 22, 2012, 06:10:35 AM
Hey guys, I'm looking to downgrade to a 13in Air. Been using my iMac primarily for work/development, and the Pro is just overkill for my mobile needs.

The Machine:
- 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina Display
- 2.6GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
- 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
- 512GB Solid State Flash Storage
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 (plus Intel HD 4000)
- Perfect condition; includes all original packaging and accessories

Special GT Offer:
 - ~90 oldschool DOS Adventure Games + some miscellany (Kings Quest, Quest for Glory, Broken Sword, etc, etc...) packaged nicely in custom AppleScripts to run just like a Mac App (appears in Launchpad and everything.) They are on there, and I'll leave them there(well, put them back after restoring to factory settings.) Full list below + a screenshot of one my launchpad folders containing some of the games.

Note: also available for pickup in the Seattle / Bellevue / Kirkland / Bothell / Everett area in Seattle. Can meet at an Apple store to have an employee inspect the computer.

Looking to get $2550+insurance on shipping(if you want it). Paid $3100 originally in August (including tax.) So, about $550 savings. Open to reasonable counter offers, but it is already a big discount. Apple Warranty good until August, but no issues at all with the computer.

Shoot me a message or e-mail or reply. Whatever protocol is.

Vim is excellent. You don't need brew to get the GUI version though.

I've been using Sublime Text 2 lately with the Vintage and VintageEx packages installed (makes it very close to Vim, but still missing some functionality.

It throws an error if you haven't agreed to the new terms of service. You have to do it on your desktop, the app just bails.

It would be nice if there were ANY notifications for new messages, game requests, etc.

Quote from: DarkEL on August 05, 2011, 01:26:23 AM

Congrats - I just updated my old Macbook Pro for one of the new 13" MBA's as well.

Here's some of the Apps that I use a lot

Twitter client
Reeder for Google Reader (seconding GuidoTKP's recommendation)
Adium for Instant messaging
Skitch for capturing/sharing screenshots
MacVim for most of my software development
Xcode for programming ios
OmniGraffle for creating diagrams
Spotify / iTunes for Music
Toast for moving videos to/from my Tivo
Handbrake for "backing up" DVD's
ScreenFlow for capturing screencasts

I also order a lot of stuff online so I use the "Delivery Status" dashboard widget to keep track of all my packages
I don't play a lot of games on my Mac - but I've been contemplating re-activating an old World of Warcraft account once I start traveling again.

Thats a pretty good list. Xcode is essential for development on OSX/iOS. But MacVim is even more essential. Hehe. I would also add the following:

Dropbox

DTerm - Brings up a little input box that lets you execute shell commands in whatever folder is in the active Finder window.

Go2Shell - In Finder, when you launch this app it will launch the Terminal(shell) with the current directory set as the folder in the Finder window.

VLC Player - Plays tons of video formats

StuffIt Expander - Great for all your unzipping/unraring/un-anything needs

img2icns - Takes an image and converts to an .icns file. Great for replacing stupid icons for your apps or creating icons for custom AppleScript Applets and what have you.

iCombiner - Combines PDFs with PDFs, images with PDFs, etc. Good for adding covers to your PDF books/papers (like the Apple Developer Docs). I like to have nicer covers. Also good for ebooks that chopped up into multiple PDFs or whatever.

ColorSnapper - Lets you "eyedrop" colors from anything on your screen. Zooms in so you can get the color you want. Pretty neat.

Humble Bundle 3
Boxer and ScummVM - I've got 93 high quality DOS games working with these two emulators including basically all of the Sierra/Lucas Arts classics(full voice) among other gems like Sherlock Holmes, Kyrandia, Broken Sword, Last Express, etc.

MagicPrefs - Not really necessary with OS X Lion on a MacBook. But if you decide to use a Magic Mouse this app is still really nice.

Quicksilver - Acts like SpotLight, but you can also configure lots of custom hot key triggers (like, maybe, cmd-shift-F to launch a Finder window. Don't know why there isn't a default key combo for launching Finder.)

That is Rx'd per CrossFit standard. Gives me a headache and sometimes hurts my back; so, I've stopped doing them recently(after the last time "Michael" showed up) and I sub V-Ups on the ground.


Great job on Cindy, by the way. Its much tougher than it appears; the rounds are fast but you accumulate them quickly. I modified it, I did one legged squats and made it to ten rounds.

By the way, what is SS?
25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Official(ish) GamingTrend CrossFit WOD Thread on: May 14, 2009, 04:50:51 AM
Way to go Jimmy! Once you get one, they start growing FAST. You'll be knocking them out 10-20 at a time before very long.
 
I've been doing about one WOD a week, sometimes two. I'm pursuing some other ideas, trying to build up my basic strength rather than my muscle endurance(CrossFit)

I did Grace last cycle and got 4:03 I think, as Rx'd. I did a modified Cindy today(subbed 10 one legged squats for the fifteen regular.) I didn't do the Power Cleans, I've had some issues with my back and I'm laying off max effort Oly's. Last time I got to 225lbs, though.
26  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Official(ish) GamingTrend CrossFit WOD Thread on: April 26, 2009, 09:15:53 PM
Yeah, being able to go back an compare your times is very helpful, no fun doing it by yourself though.


4/26
21-15-9 reps for time of:
95# squat snatch
Chest to bar Pullups.

8:51, as Rx'd
27  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Official(ish) GamingTrend CrossFit WOD Thread on: April 24, 2009, 11:27:41 PM
With times like yours, I'm not surprised. You'd have to be looking pretty fit. It is an awesome feeling to have that shock and awe from people you haven't seen in ages. Its doubly great, because you know you muscles are equipped to do REAL work, they aren't just for show.


4/24 - Michael as Rx'd - 22:06

Wow, there is no way I could even come close to doing that. If I started in the morning I would be lucky to finish before the next WOD. Some day though...

I would have said the same thing 8 months ago, when I first started. I think I got around 54 minutes then. There are guys in my gym that will be under 20... Legitimately under.

Hehehe, tear it up, Jimmy. Its rough, but you feel pretty accomplished lying on the ground afterward.

4/23 - Filthy Fifty as Rx'd - 25:00

The double unders killed me, I can't do them to save my life. At one at a time I spent about four and a half minutes on them.

Oi, made up the burpees and Angie today. Burpees first, then right in to Angie.

Inverted Burpees as Rx'd - 14:51
Angie as Rx'd - 19:20
32  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Official(ish) GamingTrend CrossFit WOD Thread on: April 21, 2009, 01:30:35 AM
Nice time, man. I haven't done Angie since my first month into CrossFit, I don't remember my time but it was bad. I'm gonna try and do it tomorrow(Tuesday). I made up DT today after the Back Squats.


4/14 - DT as Rx'd - 18:35
4/20 - Back Squat (3,3,3,3,3) - 225, 235, 245, 265, 265
33  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Official(ish) GamingTrend CrossFit WOD Thread on: April 19, 2009, 04:32:36 PM
Hell yeah, dude. You'll be doing handstand pushups in no time. Now you might want to try hold a one handstand for as long as possible, and then try a few static positions with your arms bent.

I'm working on getting away from the wall with my handstands, but it is proving difficult slywink

I'm going to have to make up this WOD and Today's (Angie) Monday and Tuesday. My gym is closed for business while everyone is at the qualifiers in Flagstaff. I still have to make up DT, too.

I had never heard of CrossFit until this thread and now I am interested in it. I wish there was a location near me (Northwest Valley) but I can't find anything. But I guess that is ok because I think I will start out going it alone, getting the motions down first. Maybe if I feel that I want to step it up I will find a location to go to on occasion.

Yeah, the gym I go to is probably the closest. You might be better served going to a facility now, rather than later. One of the good things about the gym is there are a good number of people that can help you master the movements (and of course, the competitive atmosphere we cultivate really helps push you to the next level). Make sure to watch the videos for any that moves you are unfamiliar with, pay attention to every detail, arms, legs, alignment, all that stuff.

No kidding. They were practically shoulder presses after all the box jumps, I couldn't get enough power from the hips, they just collapsed. There's a couple of guys in my gym(the owner and co-owner) that I expect would get 5+ rounds, but they are resting up a bit in preparation for the qualifiers for this years games.

I go to CrossFitFury.com its located in Goodyear, AZ on Bullard and Van Buren.

Its funny, I never thought to ask if anyone here was CrossFitting, I know a good deal of you live in Az.

Its simple. Quit acting like she is different than one of your guy friends. She isn't. Not yet anyway. Don't ask a lot questions that she gets asked everytime she goes out and then pretend that you're interested. Ask her questions SHE has to think about, otherwise you are going to get the auto-pilot. Don't let her do all the talking unless she is doing it with passion, she can have a boring conversation with anyone.

Coffee shops are great, you don't have to pay a great deal (or at all, for that matter.)

Get her in your element. Invite her out with your guy friends and some of their girls or something. You don't need to be talking to her in order to communicate to her. Prove you're not a social outcast.

And for the love of God, if they call asking to see you again, call back.
