Well, my beloved personal laptop -- the HP Elitebook 8460p I've had for over 6 years and LOVE and have never had a single problem with -- crashed and burned in the early morning hours on Tuesday. Therefore, no site updates will be coming for at least a few days as I don't like to intermingle personal stuff like this site on my work laptop. 

Not sure of the problem yet. Could be the motherboard. Could be the graphics card. Things were backed up within the last 2 weeks but a few more recent items (including a number of recently converted games) are stuck on the hard drive until I can get to a computer repair center. 

Anyway... when the site isn't updated, you'll know why. 

So bummed. Best computer I ever had, even though it was kinda heavy and clunky. It has worked tirelessly and perfectly since 2011. Simply amazing. So sad to see it go... I feel like someone should play "Taps."

Sorry to hear, but at first I thought you had given "Crash" a new "special" nick-name.

Roll Roll Roll Roll Roll Roll Roll Roll

I had a work laptop HP for years and never had a minutes trouble. They replaced it with Lenova Think-Pad and it is constantly giving me trouble.

Tim, sorry for asking multiple times but I emailed you two links a few weeks back to the 1999 steelers-panthers game and wanted to see if you saw that?

Hi, Jay! Yes, I did get the links, thank you! I haven't had a chance to download them yet because of time/computer issues, but I'm picking up my new laptop this evening and should be back in action on the site/games this week. Thanks!
