    My Turtle Beach stealth 600 PS4 game today but they were supposed to come yesterday so I got another month of prime free. My OtterBox case and my screen protector came for my Galaxy S7.

    Going to a electronics hobby shop tomorrow to pick up some things to add some sound reactive LEDS to my game boy. Hopefully they have what I need.

    Edit: did not go to the electronics hobby shop but I did but a Game Gear in great condition with the power pack and 2 games for $40 at my local retro/pawn shop.

    Also Amazon screwed up on some of my orders this week, like my headphones and my phone case. Because they kept screwing up on a bunch of my orders, I have prime free until March 2018 and they gave me $10 credit for more screw ups they had, like 2 orders stuck on shipping now for 3 days(my ps4 games) plus they upgraded those orders to free 1 day shipping, So I'll get them Monday.

    So so far they screwed up 4 orders this week.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Won an auction for this super futuristic Toshiba laptop!

    What are the specs you ask? Let me blow you away with them.
    Featuring a massive 12.1 TFT 800x600 active matrix screen, powered by an amazing ATI Rage LT Pro with 4MB of dedicated video memory for an amazing 16million colors!
    The insanely fast AMD K6-2, running at an astounding 475mhz!
    64MB of PC100 RAM!
    4.3 Billion byte HDD!!!
    A 24x CD ROM drive for high speed data transfers!
    A 3.5" floppy disk drive for all your storage needs!
    A V.90/56kflex modem, built right in for all your communication needs!
    And the absolute cutting edge in OS technologies, Windows 98 Second Edition!

    How much did I pay for this amazing beast of a PC you ask? Surely this must have cost at least $1999!

    $15. I paid $15 for this.

    :sad:

    I saw it with no bids at all and ending in like an hour and I figured I'd do just that. Gotta find a charger for it and see if it actually works, and I imagine the HDD and battery might need to be replaced, but I wanna use it for old DOS games and such whenever I'm in the mood for retro things.

    I might try and get one of those CF to IDE adapters to replace the HDD, and I'm hoping the CD-ROM drive is working as well or I might need to get a USB 3.5" reader and some blank floppies, but otherwise it should make for a nice dedicated DOS laptop

    Gotten a desktop + scanner/printer + Videopac G7000 for free.

    Desktop is nothing special, old C2D 2.3 GHz.
    Scanner/printer is a Canon Pixma.
    Videopac however came with a couple of games and is in generally good condition!

    Got the Satellite, and it works!...kinda. The battery, floppy drive, and CD drive are all bust. Unfortunately, replacement batteries and CD drives for this thing are hella expensive, so no replacement on those, but I found a replacement floppy drive for it for $8 which I just bought. Otherwise, works quite well, or as well as could be expected for a ~17-18-ish year old laptop. Had Windows 98 on it, lots of financial and school stuffs on it. Tried to install DOS 6.22, but the install failed after 12% and the floppy drive stopped reading all floppies so now it's just kinda a paper weight until the new drive gets delivered :P Have to see if I can get a wifi PC card, or perhaps just an ethernet card for "just in case" stuff, but for now I'm pretty satisfied with this! Quite frankly I'm floored that the HDD still works after all this time, and no errors were reported when I ran Scan Disk on it and did a surface scan.
