Today is MAR10 Day!
What the hell are you saying Omegalfa? Mario day? Why today and not yesterday or tomorrow?
Easy answer…. today is March, day 10th.
Write the beginning of Mario and end it with the number of the month’s day, 10. You will get MAR10 = MARIO, so all March 10th, are Mario’s Day! 😛
To celebrate this day I can resist in sharing this great review from my friend Flbond who wrote an amazing read on The Well Red Mage website.
What is a Timekeeper?
The Timekeeper is the CD-i NVRAM chip. It will keep the settings, time and date of your player and the saved games (storage). Hidden inside the chip, a little lithium battery is placed with a longevity up to 10 years or more if the player is stocked in optimal conditions (temperature, humidity).
This is not the place where they are stored, this it just the mechanism to keep them recorded, just like a lithium battery keep the BIOS setup in a computer.
This is not everyday you will see this title, even less for sell…
I am talking about The ACT College Search 92. Only sold in the 2 first years pf CD-i existence, an US exclusive title than will help American students to find the right college for there needs.
Published in 1992 by PIMA and released by CapDisc And Amarican College Testing (ACT).
Thanks again to Blazers who posted on our forum pictures, we can now have a detailed vision of one of the rarest CD-i title, only available on long box size.
The ACT College Search disc allows students to identify the colleges that meet their needs is this comprehensive interactive four of the four-year colleges in the United States.
You can also search colleges by:
– Student life

Your selection can be stored for easy access to review and compare schools. When you have identified a list of schools that meet your profile needs, the Next Step section will provide advice to help you make your final decisions and complete the admissions process.
Back in 2012, Alan_CDiZone found this unit on Digital Press, he posted the news on his now closed Philips CD-i Zone Facebook Page. He explained about the rumours of being a CD-i player used on surgery and medical places.
After our last find with the help of our website forum, Blazers showed his dentistry unknown title.
Now one day later, after sharing this news on Twitter, xsuicidesn0wmanx (@_sn0wX) confirm me his friend used a CD-i 450 placed on a metal box and dentist offices used it.
The CD-i was on eBay for $1000, but as nobody knew what it was, he finished to not sell it.
This unite sold by Intercare uses the 450 external power unit, a touchpad controller, a lock to block anyone to remove the disc and press buttons.
I can confirm we are really talking about a 450 as Alan confirmed the existence of a lateral power on/off like the 450 have. A Digital Video Cartridge is also included.
I have contacted Alan_CDiZone, who found it to let him know he was right!
xsuicidesn0wmanx is going to take better pictures for the site database.
Thank you xsuicidesn0wmanx, and also Blazers (not possible without your pictures)!
