I thought those were instinct in the wild: I received a 195 page catalog today. Not a pdf file, a real Canadian Tire catalog.
For the non Canadian among you, Canadian Tire is a hardware store and more. there probably not many home in Canada without something from there, be it a hammer, a power tool, a bicycle, kitchen appliances, camping equipments etc...
It does say on the cover that there is more online so it's not a total anachronism.
Kind of like how Kmart here in the States used to be relevant but now is circling the drain?
I don't think so, I don't keep as up to date as I should on Canadian news with it being where I live and all but I'm sure my dad would have mentioned it if Canadian Tire was in trouble. We did use to have K-Mart here too but now they're gone.
On further news I bought a ntsc to hdmi adapter last year with the goal of using my first flat monitor with my old Commodore 64. I just tried to do that and the stupid monitor does not have HDMI, just VGA and DVI. I did not remember that.
I now wish I didn't sell my old TV when I got my big screen high definition one (old HD, not 4K). I could hook it up to my current TV without even needing the adapter but I'm thinking 320x200 resolution will look horrible on a big screen TV. Beside I wanted to setup the C-64 like a proper computer with its desk and everything, and I'm not gonna put a desk in front of my TV.
I guess I'll have to content myself with VICE (an emulator for all or most 8 bit commodore computers).
