Dang! How old was Quake Rag?
That's always been somewhat fuzzy but a best estimate was August 1995.

Been coming here since 1997 myself, and administrating since Fall 1999 (and news posting too, for a number of years). Congratulations Blue, it's been one heck of a ride. Allthumbsup
Ah, thanks to you Frans too. I didn't know you were doing this for so long too! So how did you meeting Blue?

Rebels season 3 is up at http://watchdisneyxd.go.com !!!!


ooh fellow rebels fan. nice! been wanting someone to fangirl with XD

I have only seen the first 3 episodes from season 1 due to time restrictions but all the hype around season 3 has got me getting ready to catch up to the current season ASAP. Clone Wars was popular, particularly with teens, but Rebels gets praise from just about everybody I talk to at any age...provided they are a SW fan that is.
SWR S3 premiere was good. I really like CW's Netflix season 6 which was darker.

Frontier is so inept, it doesn't surprise me they confuse Win32 with 32-bit Windows. Win32 is the name of a set of APIs going back 20 years. These APIs are used whether you're targeting 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. Just plug Win32 into Wikipedia and see what comes up.

If only Braben would hire some competent people to run things over there... UGH.
And make the game for Linux!

This game plays nothing like the originals...
That is why I dislike these newer versions. Same for Lode Runner and others.

Speaking of Lode Runner, was that Xbox 360 port's any good?

Played this a disturbing amount on the atari 8 bit, back when it was new.

Quite a fun little romp, but I'm not sure it needs a remaster. It still works great in emulation, and is fun.
I played it a lot during my Apple //c days. Loved it. I don't really care aobut the newer versions though. I didn't know Atari 8-bit had a port.

Original one is, I believe, free on GOG right now.
Also on Steam!

The SW2's trailer's techno music is sweet. Does anyone know the full song of it?

Don't invest in server-authoritative f2p games, 'specially if you can't save it to your computer and have all the goods to play once the game is shutdown, or can't make private servers.
You mean ANY server-authoritative games.

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.
