Hello nice to be here....
« on: June 29, 2013, 23:15:34 PM »
My name is Rob but mostly online I am known as MaximumRD (Google it if you have nothing better to do it's kinda scary) OK now the boring story you have likely heard a million times. I am a 45 year old really into Classic Gaming/Computing. A have a ok collection I guess though no where near what some of you have and what I would like but sadly the reality of my current living situation means instead of adding items if anything I need to trim it down. Well, what I mean to say is I need to seriously streamline the collection, out with the duplicates and items collecting dust, I have always considered myself a GAMER than a collector, the collecting bit just seemed to take over at some point due to my gaming passion lol.

My intent was always to just collect huge lot's and sell trade the unwanted stuff but oh my, seems I never got around to the selling trading much  :3:

Welcome to RVG!  Evilbay is certainly a place where many of us go to get retro stuff nowadays!  Take a look around and you'll find lots of talk about retro games in here.  I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Us Canadians can laugh at ourselves. In actual fact it is beautiful here, my small city Kelowna in particular is far from what many might consider a typical Canadian city weather wise being extremely warm yet dry summers, cool nights and very light (in comparison to larger surrounding cities) Winters. Here is some info:
http://www.flysifc.ca/why_kelowna.html
Scroll down under the Quick facts section of this site and see we are much different than sterotypical thoughts on Canada:
http://www.kelowna.ca/CM/page67.aspx

So in general, when I see parodies or jokes that all Canadians say "Eh" eat back bacon, Drink Beer, live in Igloos and take the dogsled to commute I just laugh. honestly, I rarely END A SENTENCE "Eh", I DO NOT say ABOOT instead of ABOUT but I admit I DO love Beer as my avatar suggests (we have some great ones here lot's of variety and STRONG) but I don't drink light tasteless Beer I prefer always trying something new, LOVE imports Beers, Ale's, Stouts, Steam beers etc. Strong and flavourful not watered down boring piss water (though some might argue that is what it all is lol) as well a nice strong full bodied Wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon is always welcome.  :4:

See there I go, rambling on and on.........well that's me in a nutshell.

As I told our other Canadian member, I love Canadian Ice Wine.  Not an easy thing to find where I live (South Florida).

ICE WINE is wonderful, though being diabetic I try not to over indulge, fortunately being a desert wine it is not much of a problem. When we moved here the first few months we checked out a lot of surrounding Wineries, as it turns out the OKANAGAN region here is pretty much like the NAPA VALLEY of Canada! A nice bonus.

Oh, very nice!

I was first introduced to Ice Wine by a friend I was visiting in Toronto.  I was immediately snatched by it!

It is not cheap here either!  Never mind that it is nearly impossible to find!  So, when I do find it, I pay for it.
