    Happy Friday TNE! It's finally stopped raining all day every day for the past few days. The Sunshine State actually has sunshine again. Which just means I have to mow my yard this weekend, probably tonight if we don't get a typical Sarasota evening rain. We saw "Scary Stories to Tell in the...

    This past weekend was Steve2's Birthday. So we had all the family over for a dinner on Saturday. Steve decided he wanted a Breakfast for Dinner Extravaganza! So I made it happen. It was over 3 hours of non-stop cooking, but I was really proud of the results. As an appetizer, I made sausage...

    Oooooh! That's exciting! I'm right there with you with over the top Platinum games. I keep saying "I can't wait to read the reviews", but I don't know who I'm kidding, I'm going to buy it. (And keep hoping we get a Wonderful 101 port to the Switch.)

    @CitizenOfVerona - Thank you for the recipe! I can't wait to try it. I will definitely use the caramel chips as well. I had to look up what "Tender is the Night" is. I don't think I've ever read anything by F. Scott except the Great Gatsby. I know what you mean about not feeling video games...

    Awesome! Well done! This is definitely one of those times I wish I could see someone's run on the level.

    I'm not sure what the weather has been like this summer where you guys are, but we have been getting so much rain. Grass always grows fast down here, but this has been ridiculous. In Cincinnati, I could go about 3 weeks without mowing in the summer (I didn't use sprinklers.). Down here in...

    Steve2's birthday is next Monday, so I've been spending time trying to figure out what to get him. His favorite TV show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and his favorite character is Faith. When we were at Tampa Bay ComiCon recently, we saw a replica of the special blade Faith uses in the show. And...

    @mattavelle1 - Awesome! You'll have to tell us all about it! I usually read 1-2 books per month, but in 2018, I decided to do something different. I was a big X-Men comic reader growing up (late 80s through late 90s), then I dropped off in 99 when I was at college. I picked it up again in 2012...

    Wow, it has been way too long since there has been a message in this thread. Recently, it was my mom's birthday, and Steve2 and I were in charge of the cakes. Neither of us had made a normal cake from scratch before, so we decided to take on the challenge. No mixes. Turns out it was a lot of...

    Super Mario Maker 2 - Level Sharing

    Thank you both very much! I spent a lot of time play testing each swing of the claw and each pass of the fire rods. Each time it was a near miss was just exciting for me as I was building. There was definitely trial and error. Some of the fire rods had to be turned to go the opposite direction...

    I've always thought of myself as an above-average Mario gamer, but I did not do well at your Since You Been Gone level. I'm going to try it again tonight. I'll make sure to Star all of your levels as well. I know that there has to be at least one completion and a certain number of stars before...

    I uploaded another level yesterday. This is my homage to Captain Toad Treasure Tracker "Captain Toad's Adventure" Course ID: V6G-R6L-8RF Search for treasure like Captain Toad. No need to jump. If you find yourself on a claw, don't move.

    Can't wait to play this tonight when I get home from work! (I wasn't on TNE all weekend, or I would have seen this sooner.)

    If I had younger kids that were gamers (maybe 12 or younger), I would get them a Switch Lite in a heartbeat. I truly think that's the demo they are going for most with this iteration. I don't see me buying a new Switch until the Pro comes out, and I still think that is a possibility. I'd say...

    I had to take some mental me-time last week, so I didn't create much... or play much. But here is a new level. Bowser's Boss Fight Bonanza 5S2-8WF-5KF Beat the baddies, get the keys, and get out! Because it is a pink key level, you can't put in a checkpoint. So apologies for that. I had...

    Thank you @BobSilencieux and @CitizenOfVerona! I enjoy the creativity of making the levels. My biggest goal is to be fair to the player. No cheap deaths. I also want to design courses that are aesthetically pleasing and well-themed. Just because we have everything at our disposal doesn’t mean...
