I don't have the marquee holders at hand, but maybe someone could take some measur...

Re: Games to play with your spouse?

Usually cute themed games like puzzles, shooting or even fighting games works great.

Other genre that are sometimes forgotten is gun games and rail shooters.

Re: Help needed. Nanao ms9 29 stretched image.

Hello people, I would like to thank everyone for your interest and suggestions. It took me some time, but I think I finally got this monitor working fine again. I checked the pots and they were not the problem. I did another pass over spots that I thought needed more soldering and that did it in the...

He has ...

Re: I have to pick, Astro or Blast City?

It depends where you are in the world, but parts for an Astro are generally easier to find. The Astro shipped with an Nanao MS8 or MS9 (15/24k).

The Weche ok baby looks similar but it is not the same. The Ok Baby is made out of the Tecmo Kyotaro Excellent. Not the pony.
