Specifically, purchasing a Vizio.

How so? I've heard all kinds of great stuff about them, and I love mine I've had for a year.

Ditto. What's wrong with it?

Yeah the 80's had some real duds and unfortunately several of them sold well, including the C64 - what a piece of shit.

The C64 was a great computer (reliability issues aside). Some great gaming times on that machine.
C64 was great. I was glad my next door neighbor had one so we could play a lot of games together with our joysticks (my Atari 2600 [ya I had that too] and his Epyx]. I miss those days and him (lost contacts since he went off the grid).

That will be awesome.

Sweet, dude! You're long overdue for any sort of vacation.

Agreed. I dont think I remember Blue taking a day off (voluntarily) like...ever... Undecided
Blue is a robot. I do remember he had to take bereavement leaves.

7. I am waiting for Pouet's top picks... Aug 5, 2014, 05:08 Ant
 
... So I can watch the best ASM 2014 ones due to lack of time. I will check on CATurday like I always do on Pouet.net. Do you guys have your favorite picks?

Growing up using early DOS machines (8088-486) I was always fascinated by the newest products of the demoscene and would create specific menus in DOS through batch and txt files showcasing my favorites in an archive I started collecting since the 80's. I'm always happy to see the newest releases from assembly and similar festivals.. yet it's so shocking what can be fit in 4k/64k/etc with a GPU providing such a powerful backbone for demos nowadays, just as shocking sometimes as seeing the wild graphical demos of yesteryear.

I'm glad release groups are still out there 1-upping eachother every year, and I imagine many streamlined graphical techniques and shaders have been adapted from their work over the years.
Yep. I usually have to watch them in video formats because of my ancient Windows XP Pro SP3 and ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of VRAM).

Holy shit the demoscene isn't entirely dead yet! That's amazing to see. As a kid, I was completely enthralled with the PC demoscene. I never had a C64/Amiga, so I missed out on that era, but I remember vividly names like Future Crew, ElectroMotive Force, Cascada, Farbrausch, etc. I had probably half a gig of music mods (MOD, S3M, XM, STM, 669, IT, etc.) back in those days. Now I can just stream it on Scenemusic.net, and if there's a production I want to watch again, I can probably find it on Pouet.net.

It's certainly a different kind of flavor to the late-80s-to-mid-90s, but it's refreshing to see it still kicking.
Ditto. I still watch new high rated ones from pouet every CATUrday. I still listen to those old school music. What are your favorites?

I love Future Crew's Second Reality. It's still my favorite.

i play scene demos, cracks and keygens just to listen to the chiptunes.
Why not just get their soundtracks (rip, ask, etc.) just to listen to them?
