LGR – Wacky Wheels – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] “Super Mario Kart.” Not only is it the third-best selling Super Nintendo game of all time, but it’s almost entirely responsible for the kart racing video game genre.

The Apple IIe on a Card

The dawn of the personal computer age really started around 1977 with the introduction of the Commodore PET, Apple II, and TRS-80.

But during the 1980s, Apple managed to almost completely take over the educational market from Commodore, Tandy, and even IBM. This strategy was good for Apple, as it

LGR Oddware – Thermaltake 5.25″ Drive Bay Lighter/Cup Holder

[Oddly jazzy jazz music] [floppy drive noises] – Greetings and welcome to LGR Oddware. Where we’re taking a look at hardware and software, that is odd, forgotten, and obsolete.

But anyway, what it does is provide a cigarette lighter inside of a five and a quarter inch drive
