So for those of us who are WKRP, and we are sticking to the original crew for this one, there have been discussion of Jennifer or Bailey over the years. As a kid Jennifer was obviously the hot one and Bailey was the nerdy one, and mean, glasses Arrgg As Not Another Teen Movie joked, oh no...

Vertical MAME pt 3
Thereís a saying which goes something like progress is seldom made in a straight line - which basically means you canít really anticipate what you need to do until youíve started. But if youíre wise youíll minimize your losses. For me that means spending time rather than , which is why I am...

A8 MMS - Measure Counter
I have yet to input music into the MIDI MUSIC SYSTEM (MMS) software and have it correct the first play through. I can hear the error as it is played but MMS gives no indication of which measure it might be in. One solution requires an Arduino, MIDI shield with a THRU port, and numeric display. ...

But I guess this isnít going to be a very thrilling game. It needs something. Iím wondering whether I should add stuff to not shoot at that...
