    Completely agree with you for console and pc gaming. There is, still, an active community for stand-up arcade games like DK, Ms Pacman, Galaga, Centipede, etc, tho, and mobile gaming has a lot of the old spirit (emphasis on a game mechanic hook, less on graphics and narrative). There's more than just a little bit of "my generation" going on in attitude, which has been commented on as far back as Aristotle (who, I believe, had a PB high score of 2,000,000 on Galaga).

    Sad...

    I'm 44 almost 45 and love games and have alotnof them and own a multi arcade I built out of an old mortal combat 2 cab years ago.. all custom and I just gota get it out of my parents basement! Lol.

    Too old or bad time for games...i want to it's just no time or too tired to start one up..its just too much to learn everything to just play the games.. I guess I need easy to pick up and play games. :/

    Been gaming since Atari 2600. :/ owned them all. Yes the turbo duo and neo geo gold system.. and even the 4 slot neo geo arcade cab.

    Can still remember the first time playing street fighter II at the arcade.. was just like yesterday.. super magical.. and wow was it something else to buy it for the super nintendo!!!! Crazy special like Christmas morning!. Crazy memories

    Quake,Duke Nukem 3D, Doom and shadow warrior.. all awesome times on the PC!

    I even have a Oculus VR system that wowed me and many games I bought and have not touched in like 2+ months :/

    Someone was buy a barely used nintendo switch with games?? Some not even opened?? Heh

    Anyone know the size of the allen wrench that fits the P67. I have what seems to be 10,000 Allen wrenches but not one that fits the P67. Any help would be appreciated. The allen wrench size I need is for the removal of the strike plate, etc.

    totally agree! I was on a stamping forum for awhile and made some dear friends, and this one as well. WYSIWYG I'm just me. I don't get out much so have few "real life" friends, and don't get to see them very much anyhow now. But have made some wonderful friends here. and we're about the same with gaming. I was also seriously addicted to tetris. My son still has his original nintendo, not even the super one. His bday is late Nov, so one year we got him the NES for birthday, it came with Mario and duck hunt. But also got he Mario 3 but saved that for Christmas. I slit the cellophane so I could pull the game out, and most nights for that month, I'd pull out Mario 3 and practice after he went to bed. He almost caught me a few times. :lol: Now pretty much the only thing I play is subway surfers on my phone.


    loved galaga! There was one in a restaurant I worked at when my son was an infant......buncha my tips went in that machine :lol:

    Is there a specified maximum current (trip) rating on a Rio Grande spring/fuse? Or any other 18650 mechanical Reo...

    So you chose to move to the "out-house" side of Maryland? (cleaned up for ECF) :banana: (Just Kidding)
    Granted, O.C. is a comfortable distance from Baltimore, D.C. and Calvert Cliffs.

    Gotta make the time to get back "home". Maybe 2018.

    Cheers

    Sure there is but never heard of it.. have heard of people going pretty low on the reo like in the .2ohm range I believe. Wouldn't shock me if there's some around .1ohm but that be real risky with today's batteries.

    My experience on a Reo Grand is that much below 0.3Ω is going to damage your spring, by which i mean it will not collapse instantly like with a hard short, but it'll slowly pancake over time. Which means you'll notice the battery getting lower or rattling.

    There are a few solutions and indeed i run a Grand at 0.3Ω using 30A batteries like Sony's or HG's and have for years - but the recommended solution is to build at or above about 0.5Ω. Don't run a crappy Efest re-wrap rated at 60A - reputable batteries are vital in any mechanical mod.

    Thanks for that. I suspected the "fuse rating" was fuzzy, given the nature of a spring fuse.

    It's also the case that two different types of springs have been used; initially they were all made of spring steel, but as time elapsed they changed to gold plated beryllium copper in an attempt to reduce further their inherent resistance. The firing pin changed similarly and also for the fact the beryllium copper is used for tools in environments like oxygen filled rooms or where there are volatile gases - because it does not produce sparks when dropped etc. This was a head-on attempt to stop any arcing as that pin touches a Reo battery.

    That resistance of the spring is also the reason that a lot of modders used and use other methods in a Reo, especially given the rise of the sub-Ohm vaping, lung-burners of whom i am one!

    It gets curioser and curioser, LOL. I was mainly interested in the stock spring(s). But all of it is informative.
