    This is a natural progression in an industry mostly dominated by just a few console makers.

    I stand corrected. Forgot all about that succession. I am still surprised by this quick demise.

    Liked it the one time I dropped in. I think that would be a record if it closed that soon. I imagine the rent couldn’t have been crazy high and there are residents and businesses close by.

    You might be able to pick up an old used cannon for super cheap and use CHDK with it. That enables time lapse. The models that it will work with are listed.

    A used functional powershot A410 seems to go for around $20 shipped on EBAY.

    Of course you would need to make an enclosure or place this in a window and run the camera off of an AC adapter. For timelapse it is important that exposure and focus settings be set to manual (to avoid flicker).

    Your dad, and a handful of 3.5″ floppy disks may be the savior here.

    Won’t work.

    I am pretty sure the original (1984) Mac used 400k floppies, and had no harddrive or scsi bus. Not to mention it only used 128k of ram.

    It is a 50 pin scsi (not ide) harddrive.

    Lol…said the same thing. Now I spend a lot more time in the garden and have never really gotten the knack for texting. I got burned out scripting vrml when that was going to be the next big thing. It wasn’t. ;)

    I think that saying about death and taxes is the only given.

    Maybe we can’t assume that having children is part of their long term goals? Maybe they will choose to not have children for the same reasons that they don’t want houses or cars.

    very good point

    This thread is about millennials not buying houses or cars and it seems to be holding true in Columbus. There are some good points raised. I wonder though how much of this is more age related than generational? I can’t imagine schlepping a family of 5 around on a bus (not to mention the cost after hitting 48″). I also feel that when your kids start going to school you would probably want to move the least amount possible and probably get them in the best available schools.

    I agree that Clintonville has remained insulated from a lot of the issues that especially plagued High St in the 70′, 80’s and even 90’s. While I understand the argument that alcohol might spark the restaurant industry in Clintonville I don’t think the current system is broken and I think it still serves a valid purpose.

    The slow gradual decline of the Hilltop over the last 30 years is depressing. There were a lot of long time residents with a lot of owner occupants and it was a much more stable community. Unfortunately a lot of these long term residents are elderly and passing on now and their children are not staying. As mentioned above, the vacancies and growth in absentee landlords has really hurt the neighborhood.

    I think the high profile nature of Mayor Coleman’s projects seems to rub a little salt into the wounds in the areas that are not getting attention.

    Sounds like they are a little over 10 years old. I remember Braddock’s in Grandview and I think it only lasted about 3-4 years. It is where Aab’s is now. The pork was good.

    Ashley’s was in the Holiday Inn on Lane.

    WL has definitely injected something different into this area, but the area doesn’t seem to be taking it very well. As I suggested, it’s like someone picked up a bar from Park St. and set it down here. The funny thing is, every other WL I’ve been to seems much more laid back by comparison.

    I was there late into the evening last night. The place was very busy, but the crowd wasn’t any different than any other normal crowded sports bar I have been in during major sporting events. It was a pretty mixed crowd. I wouldn’t compare it to Park St.

    There is definitely a parking situation that didn’t exist before WL opened. There is no question that is causing problems. I also don’t doubt that people are making noise working their way back to their cars. The best answer to that situation is permit parking.

    Moe’s Southwest Grill Launches New Franchise on Lane Avenue
    Published on March 9, 2013 10:00 am
    By: Ayana Wilson

    The campus and environs of the Ohio State University is a hotbed for fast food franchises. Whether traditionally fast and greasy or gourmet, restaurants that can produce quality food in a speedy manner at a low cost thrive in such an environment. At least this is what Moe’s Southwest Grill is banking on, as it recently opened its doors on Thursday, March 7th at 1305 West Lane Avenue.

    When I was a server long ago, my pay (talking tips) would vary greatly by the changing shift schedule I ended up with that week. That always made it hard to plan. I felt a lot less in control of my earnings than in any other job I have ever had. I just wanted to add that as my own personal server rant.
