Default Started tearing down an old house today.*cool pics*

This is an old house that my dad lived in back in the 70s. It'* pretty much falling apart. We just started cleaning up today.

Let'* see if the 15 year old is the only one who knows what this is.

This is all the stuff we cleared out of the living room. This dumpster was empty when we started, and all of this stuff is out of one room.

It should. The chip isn't messed up or anything. It was about 1/2 an inch from getting demolished by a pitchfork when I picked it up.

Bring on the jokes.
She'll be totally gone. My uncle was gonna fix er up, but she'* way beyond fixing. Since it has the 2 concrete pads at each end, we're gonna fill in between them with more concrete and build a shop.

Geof, my uncle has a system somewhere I'm gonna try it out.

I have a Coleco Gemini, an Atari 2600 clone, rare stuff apparently.



Aside from a loose rear power connector, it'* immaculate. I have Donkey Kong Junior
