19. Olympics... Aug 23, 2016, 22:09 Ant
 
... I only watch parts of the ceremonies. However, I record them since they are just too long. I skip the speeches, most of the flag parades, partying, etc. I do watch the cool visual performances, etc. Blue, you missed out Mario scene in Rio's closing ceremony. That's OK. We have the Internet: http://vimeo.com/179734356 ... I can't wait for 2020's Japan!

You can get up to 21 free days of time if you use the right person's referral code. You still have to put in all your information but you won't be billed a cent so long as you cancel everything as soon as you're approved.
Entering valid financial datas annoying.

Nah you have to pay a 15-19 sub per account or if you can generate enough income you can buy game time from others that would rather trade real world money for in game money.

But you are right it should be free, game is a giant pain in the ass to play. The numbers are down from the high point.
Ah. So no free trial/beginning levels. Wow.

I have 73 minutes in the game. That's probably enough.
Way less for me due to my very old Debian/Linux box even though its RAM was lower than the minimum requirements (needed two more GB!). It was very slow, but I got to try it at least. It's funny! I love its MMOG parts.

/pats Windows 7 on the head

You're a good boy. Yes you are. Who's a good boy? You are!

/makes a fuss of Windows 7



My previous Windows 7 install lasted close to 6 years and was still working fine, until the motherboard gave in.

Current Win7 install has been going for close to a year and only had one system crash thanks to AV/Firewall having a fight.

To think it came out while that weirdo Steve Ballmer was CEO of Microsoft, noone seemed to like him, look how things are going since...

Bah. I have had the same Windows XP Pro SP3 since late 2002 or so, and still using it today after about five mobos.

As I suspected, a proper data connection was not possible at this locale, so updating was not possible, but who knows? Things progress quickly in this world of mobile coverage, so maybe I'll be able to get online when we do this again as planned next year.

Or you could, you know, take a day off every now and then.

We'd survive.
Or take a long vacation? Wait, we would go nuts.

Why not buy him that dog?

This looks awful. Just play the original, it`s still a stone cold (pun intended} classic with timeless gameplay.
Yep. I haven't seen any new ones that are rad(ical) as the original like with Apple 2 port and C64 ports. Same with the classic Lode Runner games. I wonder which original ports were the best. I remember their C64 ports were smooth and had better audio. I wanted to try that Xbox remake of classic LR. That looked decent.

I loved playing and making maps when I was a callow ant on my Apple //c. However, I am not crazy about these newer versions' looks.

Bah, no Linux port?

Blue, have you checked on archive.org?

https://web.archive.org/web/19970204065209/http://bluesnews.com/q-july.html appears to be oldest on there!

Yeah, but we're older than the that site, so that was all slurped from our archive after it was pruned. In other words, that page is basically the same as this one:
