The good part:
Over the last ~month, I've acquired pretty much every common game console from my formative years, starting only with an NES and a PS2. The bulk of which was acquired yesterday. relsqui and I will compile a list in the near future. For now, I need to go to the store, get power strips, and another switch box for RCA video/audio.
The bulk of which were acquired in this piece of insanity which I drove yesterday in the MR2 with the tops down the whole way. My scalp is sunburnt, but the rest of me isn't, and it was *incredibly* worth it.
The bad part:
When I hit Santa Rosa, the MR2 wouldn't start again. Fortunately, with the help of one of the guys there, we cleared some corrosion from the battery and got it to turn over. A little ways down 101, the alternator gave out. I was able to coast through traffic to the side of the road (with no turn blinkers). AAA towed me back out to the mechanic.
The slightly less bad part:
The alternator's definitely under warranty.
The slightly more bad part:
I suspect bad wiring. Both the battery and the alternator have been replaced in recent memory. I may have to finally get around to changing the windshield wiper switch and the like.
In other news, people in Santa Rosa are interesting. They're very slightly like zombies.
