I've still got an N64, and I have a Commodore 128 sitting in the garage waiting for me to have time to relearn all the commands.

i'm gonna start modding consoles too now. I plan on giving my old SNES a new coat of paint. A few lights and maybe an SSEi emblem. If i can find one the color i want.

I still own the NES I've had since I was a kid, EVERYTHING still works, even the (orange) zapper. With the exception of a couple games that were bought used way back when, I don't have to blow on ANY of my games either.

Also have a Coleco Gemini - an Atari 2600 knockoff:

You mod it for that or is it just clean? I bent the pins up for mine...so you don't even have to press it down.

That was my first computer back in 1990 or so. I had all kinds of games for that, I still have some atari games somewhere in storage. We have Jeff'* N64 but haven't played any of the games in a long time.

It'* just clean.

The theory has it that when you blow on the cartridges, spit particles kind of create an electrolyte for the contacts, making the game work
