Not sure about the online gaming for SNES. I use Snes9x emulator. The controls are already set up the way I like. I  keep both Virtuanes and Snes9x in a folder in my dcuments and run from there. Oh, I forgot about the Visual Boy Advance 1.8.0 Beta3...Project64 1.6 is better than the newer version available in playonlinux. Of course you have to have rom collections for all of these. Have fun!

Hah, I see.

In my mind i3 is ┬┤from┬┤ WattOS and it keeps slipping my mind that it's a separate entity. I still have to get used to not searching for "WattOS How to do ... " but instead create separate searches.

Got it. Thanks. ^_^

Does that mean that there is no help in the following links from Google?

I do not use i3 and have no clue. :)

So I have been looking around but can not really find the answer to the following. Most likely I did not look at the right places. The Wiki did not help either unfortunately.

How can I make the terminals in i3 transparent so I can see the background image through them?

Looking up what PlayOnLinux is made me hooked due to one game that now actually runs.. TES Morrowind GOTY. wow.

I'll look into the emulators soon.

But I must say that I was also surprised that my Logitech gamepad works without needing to install anything. All buttons work as they should. I tested that in Shadow Man, and wow.

I remember Mario Kart from the SNES.. and now I remember F-Zero as well. I'll be making some time to properly game soon!

I do remember that in ye olden times the ZSNES allowed for online gaming (multiplayer through LAN). Is that still the case with some of the emulators?

I know this isn't anything to do with Linux, but if anyone here ever plays MarioKart online, and you see someone named BurntNoodle, that's me.  ;D

Thought I'd give my personal review on this topic...for what that's worth... ;D

I just finished doing our taxes with TaxAct. My wife asked about it on her Travel Agency's Facebook page, and several people gave it rave went ahead with it.

For anyone interested...

I wouldn't personally recommend TaxAct unless you're a stickler for details; which means, paying EXTREMELY close attention to "options" rather than being asked specific questions (like TurboTax and H&R Block does) to complete the different steps.

Compared to TurboTax and even H&R Block, it's EXTREMELY easy to miss deductions and even pertinent information that's required. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to fill out our taxes with TaxAct; whereas, TurboTax and H&R Block took roughly 1 1/2 hours...give or take. I had to keep going back and filling in information that I missed. Plus, it asked me for information at one point, then when I got ready to e-file, I had to enter the same information with even more detail...too much to explain!

Now, I'm basing this off of past experiences with both TurboTax and H&R Block, so there could be some changes in both of them that I'm unaware of.

Total finished cost was $70. Not enough savings for the problems I ran into...but that's me.  >:(

They asked for a rating of 1 - 10 as to whether I'd recommend it to others...I gave it a 5.

Aw man.. looking at the NES/SNES/N64 made me relive some of those days. Faxanadu (NES), Lufia II (SNES, etc. Awesome games back then on the consoles.
