So by a strange trick of fate I was at New York Comic Con this afternoon. These things happened.

That Dragonite plushie is adorable.


Went to Savers again today, got some more stuff to re-sale

Nintendo 64 bundle consisting of: system with jumper pack + all hookups + standard gray controller + Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Mario Party, Pokemon Stadium, Blast Corps, Automobili Lamborghini, and Star Wars Rogue Squadron all for $50 total. When I brought it to the checkout counter the guy said "Wow, cool find! I remember playing Smash Brothers on one of these."
TI-83+ graphing calculator - $5 - Might wind up giving this to my sister since she borrowed mine two years ago and never gave it back

They also had ANOTHER Wii system, but were asking $50 for it which is about what it's worth. They also had two extra sets of AV and power cables for them. They also had a PS2 for $5, but when I plugged it in to test it it wouldn't power on so left it as it wouldn't be worth the hassle for only a few dollars. After walking around the store and coming back to electronics a women was looking at it. I told her it wasn't working, but she took it anyway. There was also a second one for $15 but the label on it said it wouldn't read discs.

On my way into town, I had brought $2 in change with the original intent of treating myself to a couple of candy bars, because I hadn't had candy in a while, but as I left my street, a huge fluorescent pink sign caught my attention, advertising a huge yard sale. Then I thought, "Hm, maybe I should skip the grocery store on the way home and go straight to that sale." And so, on my way back home from a meeting with one of my clients, I stopped at that sale, and it turned out to be one of those where any money made during the sale goes to a local charity. I ended up using that $2 in change to buy:
- A silver original Game Boy Advance and a small handful of games. Original price was $10.
- A Casio battery-powered adding machine, for 50˘.
- Another stereo RCA dubbing cable, for 25˘.

Even if none of these devices actually work, I have no regrets. In fact, I feel better about giving my $2 to a charity rather than to either the Mars Corporation or the Hershey Company.

EDIT (10-9-2016): The printing calculator works as a typical four-function calculator, but it will not print and instead throws a "printer error." I'm not sure if it had to do with anything, but when I opened the case, I noticed a blown-out transistor and some damaged traces on the circuit board underneath the transistor. While I could theoretically buy a replacement transistor and repair the traces, I feel that it's really not worth investing $2 into repairing a 50˘ calculator, so I'll just use it like a desktop calculator. The Game Boy Advance, the games, and the RCA cable, on the other hand, work flawlessly, despite having to pull a piece of toothpick out of the Game Boy's headphone port. Why that was in there, I'll never know.

Candy, archaic hardware, same thing, right? :D

Do I now need to have someone manufacture sugary candies that look like PCI cards?

No, because I would eat so many of them that my teeth go on strike against me.

Cool

The Sun is warm.

Also, #TeamValor or whatever. I don't play Pokémon GO Away, so I'll give that to a friend.

Really, no one is getting Moon? I thought everyone here was night owls

I will be picking up Sun after work in 12 hours. Ugh this is going to be a long day of staring at the clock.

It's going to be nice to own a 3DS with a working L button, an actual circle pad, reliable Internet connectivity, a volume slider and a battery that lasts more than an hour again!

Also I didn't read how unapologetically enormous the New XL was until I actually held it in my hands. Carrying that thing around's going to be fun. :D

Edit: okay so the new forum is apparently rejecting my attachment URL so I'll do this in the meantime.
