Nailed it. If heaven is like anything I was taught as a kid and it's populated by the crazy churchy people I was around I don't want to be there.

Tandy sure takes me back! My dad had a couple Tandys when I was a kid.

On this day:
At 28th November of 1983, the ' TRS-80 Tandy 2000 Computer ' was released.

The Tandy 2000 was a personal computer introduced by American franchise of electronics retail stores, Radio Shack, which used the 8 MHz Intel 80186 microprocessor.

By comparison, the IBM PC XT (introduced in March 1983) used the older 4.7 MHz 8088 processor, and the IBM PC AT (introduced in 1984) would later use the newer 6 MHz Intel 80286.

Due to the more efficient design of the 80186, the Tandy 2000 ran significantly faster than other PC compatibles on the market, and slightly faster than the PC AT. (Later, IBM upgraded the 80286 in new PC AT models to 8 MHz.)

Despite all the advancements, the 80186 CPU was not popular with software developers, so few wrote software for the 80186.
More to the point, however, the Tandy 2000, while touted as being compatible with the IBM XT, was different enough for most software beyond purely text oriented to not work properly.

The Tandy 2000's proprietary graphics hardware allowed a display of up to 640×400 (non-interlaced) pixels with 16 colors onscreen, which was a particularly high-resolution and colorful display for its day.

CGA compatibility was hit or miss. The text-mode address space was in a different location but third party memory-resident software hacks remedied this by copying the PC-compatible text-mode memory to the Tandy 2000's text space at a rate of 5-10 times per second.
This caused a bit of choppiness in the display, but worked fairly well.

Software packages that were released for the Tandy 2000 included WordPerfect 4.2 (WP5.1 could work with software patches), Lotus 1-2-3, AutoCAD, Lumena (from Time Arts) and shareware office programs. Microsoft released a version of Xenix for the Tandy 2000 (used with Tandy's network card).

At the time of its release, the prices for the Tandy 2000, ranged from $2,750.
In the end the computer was poorly supported by Radio Shack; eventually the remaining unsold computers were converted into the first Radio Shack Terminals (which, oddly enough, had been one of the original backup plans for the original TRS-80 Model 1).

The original "TRS-80 Micro Computer System" launched in 1977 (later known as the Model I) was one of the earliest mass-produced personal computers released by Radio Shack.

The Tandy 2000 computer was the only computer sold by Radio Shack that had both logos on the case "Tandy" and "TRS-80".

This slow cooker chicken enchilada soup recipe only takes about 10 minutes of prep time, and it is oh-so-delicious and comforting.

Yes. Yes. Yes! Yes, yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!! This is finally going to happen!

Even more yes with this: http://io9.com/matthew-mcconaughey-in-evil-talks-to-be-the-stands-ran-1663131064

The Stand is my all-time favorite book. It all started when I saw the original mini-series way back when. It left an impression on me even though it wasn't very good when lined up next to the book.

I finally read the book when I was in high school and have read it at least 3-4 times more since then. And Matthew McConaughey as Flagg? Super awesome. I hope they find a way to bring Gary Sinise back somehow. I think he could still play Stu. What does everyone else think?

I will be one of the first in line to see this when it comes out! I can't wait!

After Stephen King said not to count on The Stand being only one film, writer-director Josh Boone confirms that it won't. It's going to be four.

This is why I should be a gadget reviewer! lol So I could mess around with all the phones that I wouldn't normally have a chance to use.

This is a perfect example. I def wouldn't want to use it as my daily. But I'd love to fiddle around with it just the same.

#Blackberry  
When you hear the word "smartphone," what image pops into your mind? Maybe it's the phone you own or the one you desperately want. Maybe it's even a favorite pocket companion from years past. Whatever it may be, one thing is likely certain: it looks nothing like the BlackBerry Passport.

Introduction
I'm a laid-back guy who likes to make silly noises and sing in falsetto. I'm married to a wonderful woman and we just had our first child in May. His name is Erik. We have two crazy cats named Kitty and Chloe.

I love playing video games and have spent far too much time on my Xbox. I suck at fantasy sports but I play them all the time.

This place has definitely gotten worse over time. My wife and I went here a few months ago and the food I got was not very good at all. The complimentary bread is tasty but very greasy. Couple that with the olive oil for dipping and you've got a greasy mess on your hands. I ordered the fettuccine alfredo with chicken and the alfredo sauce was tasteless and the chicken was low-quality and gristly. I believe my wife ordered the Chicken Under a Brick. She let me try some and it was pretty good; I wish I would have gotten that. We both also got caesar salads, which were fine. And there was a fly buzzing incessantly around our table. It's probably not a good sign when you have flies in your dining area (or anywhere else!) I can't recommend this place to anyone.

I've been here a few times and have always had good experiences. The staff is quick to refill drinks and bring more chips and salsa and the portions are huge. I prefer the complimentary chips and salsa at La Paz to the ones offered here, but that's minor. Lately, my go-to dish has been the Chile Relleno Burrito. I would definitely recommend El Toro.
