Adventures in Electronics

Folks who come here often might notice I haven't been here lately.  I have been pretty busy since moving to Florida last year. And most of all, especially in regards to this blog, if I'm being honest, we have not hooked our game systems up yet. 

The PS3 is of course hooked up, as that is our portal to play DVDs and Blu-Rays as well as PS3 games, but that's it.  Other than the PS3, we have a variety of old school gaming systems, including the PlayStation2, the Atari 2600, the original Nintendo Entertainment System, and the SuperNES, not to mention our old Game Boy. 

Our friend Dave was over and we went to the mall.  One of our regular haunts there is the non-franchise gaming store with old games - because of course we have old game systems.  The Bride was enamored with a Dance Dance Revolution X game with mat for the PS2.  As the conversation turned to how our PS2 wasn't hooked up, Dave, nice guy that he is, volunteered to hook all our systems up.  Dave's a saint. 

An afternoon and a couple trips to Best Buy later, we had them all connected and working, a miracle.  And after I played Super Godzilla for the SNES for awhile, The Bride danced her heart out to DDRX for a bit.  We're happy, and the blog is back in business, thanks, Dave!
