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.

Well you missed out on a frustrating experience. Frustrating because there was so much potential there, forever to remain unrealized. The combat alone was pretty exciting in and of itself and relied a lot on a players personal skill instead of just on levels like every other copy & paste MMO out there. *sigh*
What about these days?

News Comments > John Romero's New DOOM Level
18. Re: John Romero's New DOOM Level Jan 18, 2016, 23:46 Ant
 
On my long weekend's non-paid holiday (wanted to work to make more $$$ before my quarter contract ends if it happens :(), I just finished playing it in my old Doomsday Engine in a very old, updated Windows XP Pro SP3 with enhancement mods. Wow, it was so fun for a hour. Even though Doomdays crashed thrice due to shotgun models, it was still fun. Hard too! Lots of traps and tricks. :O Romero, more please. Hey, at least I played a game again! ;D

You can trade most things, but for legendaries you find, it is only for a limited time with the people who were in your group at the time it dropped. It's a compromise, allowing friends to trade loot without opening it up to black market exploitation.
Interesting and thanks.

Game is really good.....just doesn't hold me after beating it 20+ times.....fun sometimes to jump in with friends, but the gear lock kinda turned me off.
Isn't that the same like Diablo 1 and 2? Gear lock? Like no trade, dumping, etc.?

0 interest in playing Diablo 3 after playing its beta. Is it better now?
The original beta? I think there's a fairly large consensus the game was significantly better after the expansion.
Yep, see my http://aqfl.net/node/9811 review from 4/22/2012.

Yeah... still zero interest in playing seasons, Blizzard. Forcing stash unlocks into seasonal play is really a scumbag move.

When I read "in my spare time" I had to look him up and catch up because I was kind of under the impression he's had *nothing but* free time since Daikatana... though I do vaguely remember reading he was going to switch to making mobile games or something.

this apparently only took him a few hours to make.
Wow, that's impressive. It took me weeks and months to do mine, but then I had other stuff going on beside maps: http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/doom2/j2doom/j2doom.html ...
