I think my Sega Saturn is going to stay hooked up for the foreseeable future. I'm finally going to play through Super Robot Wars F and F Final, then maybe sink my teeth into both Falcom Classics collections or maybe the Langrisser series.

Sigh. Snowing outside, kid and wife battling colds, and no ambition to go out.

Looks like it's time I put on another pot of Lavazza and drag out the Saturn to play SD Gundam G-Century.

Cars and trucks are honking their horns in unison around town. Is it time for the Two Minutes Hate already?

She asked why, so I told her I wanted to set up a pipe or cigar smoking area in the rec room. This way, there's less second-hand smoke.

She said no :(

I suppose it's no different than asking myself that same question years ago, when I fired up my Coco 3 after years of using my Amigas...

I have one nagging fear about setting my Amiga 1200 and/or 4000 up: wondering "How the Hell did I ever do graphic design on this?" after using GIMP and Inkscape (and to a lesser extent Photoshop) for the past decade..?

This work week is done, and I'm on my third round of holidays next week.

My only real plan is to clear out my lab so I can set my TRS-80 and Amiga 1200 back up.
