Out of the Blue

Today is the 40th anniversary of the command module for Apollo 17 setting down, marking the last time man landed on the moon. One small step for (a) man. Too bad we've lost our stomach for giant leaps. Speaking of the calendar, I want to wish a happy Hanukkah to all who are celebrating, as we are now amid the festival of lights, which began on December 8th and runs through sundown Sunday.

The "collector" who is selling that SNES collection is none other than "byuu", the creater of the bSNES emulator, which is hands down the most accurate emulator available for the SNES, and one of the most impressive emulators ever created, as it replicates the SNES' internal components almost *exactly* cycle-for-cycle, unlike most emulators that use software hacks to get most things working smoothly.

With a program like bSNES under his belt, I can see why he is selling off all his games, as the program literally runs every single one of them as well as the original console did.
