Various Uni Stuffage

Howdy all! I’m posting again but with my Deja.com account so I can trim down
the spam :slight_smile:

I posted a message about a month or so ago asking for Canadian suppliers of
uni’s and Mike King replied with some info, which I saved but got file 13’d by
accident (oops). I did reply to his reply privately in email but he never
replied back so I hope he picks this up :slight_smile:

Secondly: I was thrilled to see the next NUC will be in Toronto next year. This
rocks! I’ll very likely be going to this. Especially if someone holds a
uni-jousting session. For those of you who like to do endurance, it would also
be fun to see a Younge St. Marathon :smiley:

Thirdly: I just picked up an old Super Nintendo game that I’ve wanted years ago
(the Uni-obsession of mine is well rooted)… Uniracers! After playing it for
about oh four hours I was wondering if anyone else out there has actually played
it and thought that I should co-erce those of you with a SNES unit (or emulator)
to go hunt it down. It’s pretty cute and can be a little bit of a challenge in
the silver levels.

That is all!

I don’t know how many people are into that, but you could surely host a workshop
on the subject (hands-on, of course), to introduce people. I remember reading
about a couple of guys in Canada doing jousting in the 70’s. They used rolled up
cones of long computer paper for their lances. Is this what you had in mind?

Is that the street that goes all the way up to the arctic circle or something?
Or does it have a nice steep hill in it? I’ve always wanted to try a race up a
steep (paved) hill. Not that I’m in any shape to win anymore, but it would be a
different type of challenge, one we haven’t done.

How about a 10K marathon (paved) with lots of hills! It could be either 24" or
unlimited…

I owned Uniracers before I even owned the Super Nintendo system. It is
surprisingly fun! I’ll give you a dollar if you can physically do the twister
city trick. Jump and do a 1440 (four complete spins). Great game for somethin’
like $3. Go for it!

Yeah something like that. I’m thinking maybe some make shift broomsticks with
toilet paper rolls secured to one end of them and some more t.p. wrapped
around it…

I just think it’d be fun. Just, beware of the people who charge towards you full
speed on their Corkers!

Close. It’s the longest street in Toronto (I think). I don’t know what the
elevations might be cause I’ve only been on part of it and that was some 11
years ago :slight_smile:

If you want steep, try ridding up the side of the CN Tower.

I downloaded it about a year ago, after someone posted a link here. I can’t find
that post now, nor can I remember where I downloaded it from, but try

Yes, it’s a fun game.
