Hello!

Hi there everyone! My name is Nathan Diniz, and I've played video games since I was just a young kid (probably started when I was 4) and I've loved playing video games ever since. I want to thank all the people who made this site possible for enabling all of us to play our favorite classic video games, and relive the memories of our childhood!

I live in Champaign, IL with my grandparents, and I own 2 cats, one of which gives the sweetest hugs & kisses. I work for a company here in town called Melody Music that deals strictly with game room equipment such as pool tables, pinball machines, jukeboxes, dart boards, and more! If you want me to tell you what it's been like to work at this company in the last year, it's been a wild ride. One of my bosses was involved in a plane crash, and died a few months ago. Life goes on however, and I take pride in all the work I do!

Re: Hello!

It depends. We don't do much retail. I know we do have some games that we have at the bowling alley I used to work at. One of my main jobs was to blow up 500 "knobby balls" each week by putting air into them. They were already preformed for us, so all I had to do is put a needle in (with lots of soap, and one of my bosses calls this "licking & sticking it") and blow the preformed "knobby ball" up to a certain size using a pre-made template. That was an OK job, but I won't be doing this anymore. I don't do service calls however, because even though I have taken driving lessons, I choose not to drive, even though our vans are already insured. It's easier for me to do my work at our warehouse, which is conveniently nearby my house. I have a ton of friends who work with me, and we get along just fine. We all have a good sense of humor, and I think it's important to have a sense of humor, because without it, there's no use living life!

I forgot to mention that I don't drive, because Champaign, Urbana, IL has one of the best bus systems in the USA! I can be anywhere I need or want to be in the Champaign, Urbana area within at least a half hour's time, if not a little more than that.

Ah! I know who it is now! Thanks for the link! I know who she is, even though I've never met her. She seems to be a nice lady. I feel bad for her loss. Her father & I were good friends for quite a long time.

Re: Hello!

Hi Ndiniz2011, and welcome to RU, the best site on the net!

I hear what you're saying about reliving the good old days while playing the retro games on this site.
What a great trip down memory lane, eh?

With literally thousands of games including foriegn titles, unreleased prototypes, extremely rare titles, and even some 'homebrew hack' customized games, I think RetroUprising is the best collection of games anywhere!

Apparently, the only surviving person who gave the review of Melody Music is Ashley Buerkett.
