    I'm curious if it is in survival mode or creative mode. Either way....

    In spite of having months to plan and make my outfit, I still ended up throwing together something vaguely resembling steam punk wild west over the three days before the day

    ooooo, big fan of steampunk myself. Sadly can't do much with it nowadays. And, since I lost weight, I don't have an outfit anymore. What else do you have to your outfit?

    Nothing much apart from that and a skirt (no bustle, there was no time for that). I did make the bag myself though, so I am pretty chuffed

    Anyone here ever build a MAME cabinet? I've toyed with the idea of building a cocktail-style cabinet for years, using whatever old PC I was retiring at the time. Now, I'm seriously thinking of picking up a Raspberry Pi and doing it. I'd only load the maybe 2 dozen games anyone would actually play, and maybe also include an MP3 player (but it will only play music from 1980-1984 B)).

    I'm afraid I have no idea what a MAME cabinet is. I've toyed with the idea of building a PC for years, but never got around to it, and technology changes so quickly that I'm way behind on the latest and greatest.

    But I did lose my PC this summer and had to get a new one - I'm pretty sure the motherboard went out on the old one. I still have it, though, minus the hard drive and the CD drive, since new PCs apparently don't come with disc drives anymore, and I found a USB box that could connect my old internal hard drive from the old PC to the new PC, which was extremely convenient as it acts like a flash drive and allowed me to transfer all my old files from the old drive to the new PC - and since it has Windows 7 on it, I believe I could also boot from the old drive as well in Windows 7, though I haven't tried it yet.

    I do know that when I get time, I'm going to dig through the Windows files on the old PC and find Spider Solitaire Windows 7 edition - I HATE the solitaire suit in Windows 10 and the fact that it has ads and wants you to pay for the premium, non-add version!

    That sounds fun.

    There is a way to get the classic solitaire back but you have to use Windows XP. It gets more complicated with windows 7.
