Wow, XCOM is that popular? I couldn't get into the original DOS versions. I wonder if I will like the newer games. Are there playable demos of any of the newer XCOM games?

Actually yes, yes there is a demo off Steam for the X-com I enjoy, http://store.steampowered.com/app/200510/

I hated the original games myself, I wanted to like them, but they were pretty difficult. The new Xcom: Enemy Unknown is alot more forgiving and easier to access, I feel. I enjoyed it enough to play through the game complete, twice.
Thanks!

It looks decent. It reminds me of DOOM with Mortal Kombat X.

"Hookers and blow " is actually a thing. Who knew?

Also Ant is going to be disappointed.

I don't know y'all like that, but is Ant disappointed that a simulator about him is now cancelled, or that he wasn't invited to the party with the hookers and blow?


~Finis~
Or both?

I use the Scroll Lock key for the Steam Overlay. I got tired of accidentally opening it when playing FPSes where I hold shift to walk/run and use TAB for things. Scroll Lock made since because it wouldn't conflict with anything.
Oooh, excellent idea! Although that will be conflicting with my KVMs.

Well, I remember waiting for 4.01.. I also remember being disappointed with 5.0, but don't recall why. I suspect whatever it was I got over it.
v5 was better than v4! Oh yeah, I remember DOS v4's DOS SHELL GUI!

I'm still waiting for a job to come up to take advantage of this birthday-gifted left-handed screwdriver that none of my right-handed ones can handle.


~Finis~

Take it to Burger King to make an adjustment on the left handed whopper.

Ikea had a problem with this with their left handed allen keys as well.
And Ned Flander!

Since then I loath support assignments.
I did the help desk thing for about 3 years. I was shocked I didn't get fired. I used to mute the call and then yell obscenities at the customers -- somehow though, I never messed up my muting.

KVM switch boxes' double press to switch, stop scrolling in spreadsheets and console text screens, etc. I still use it! I wished my work's Lenovo W530 lappy still had a scroll lock key. I really hate its on screen status screen for CAPS lock!

I believe you're the first person I've ever known that uses that key. I have it on my keyboard but there's no light for it.
Really? I learned to use it when I started working in 1998. I used at home too like a few hours ago! Very useful. No need for extra keyboards, mice, monitors, etc. with multiple computers.

Oh and I use num lock's keypad sometimes! Did I mention I still prefer clicky keyboards like Model M?

News Comments > SUNLESS SEA Free Weekend; New Content
4. Played Sunless Sea for almost an hour last night! Jan 30, 2016, 11:03 Ant
 
I was going to resume Breaking Bad, but instead played a game (amazing!). It was an interesting game with a slow start since it was very different. Lots of readings (not a fan of reading) which was going to make me quit and uninstall, but I like its style and theme so far when I started in the ocean. I already died. I need to play more before tomorrow's 1:00 PM PST free weekend end time. It played very well on my super ancient computer.

Play the first 20 levels in Tortuga (I think that's the island's name). Afterwards call it a day and uninstall.
That took only a day? I wonder if it is worth even using my unused key then.
