Out of the Blue

It's kind of hard for me to believe, but this site has now been at the bluesnews.com domain for seven years now(!) I got the date on this scrambled, and actually should have mentioned this yesterday, which was the actual anniversary of the move, which took place on October 9, 1996. It's been a wild ride, and I want to thank you all once again for all the amazing support you have shown over all these years, which has made this all possible. Anyway, the seventh anniversary is kind of bugging me out, because I know I've written in this space about my own shock at realizing that a given game was that old, so now I have a similar perspective on this site. Blue's News (or blue's Quake Rag at the time) actually began on my home ISP over a year before (the best estimate I've been able to conjure is August 1995), so that makes us over eight, and that much closer to double digits (eeek!). Anyway, thanks again from the bottom of my heart for your support.

Definitely going to see Kill Bill: Vol. 1 today... hope it's a winner!

Just took a look at those archives. Before you mentioned it, it didn't even occur to me that stuff that old was still available. Here's a nice quote from that page where someone brags about their high-end LAN setup:

LAN Play
Awesome. Two P166's, two P133's and a P120 hooked up to a 486-100 (Overdrive) via Ethernet was flawless. Client's pings averaged around 35-40 ms.

Wonder what they paid for their NIC cards? Probably about $500 apiece. And of course, no 3d video cards.
