Here's something from Carolyn Dean, MD, ND
Author of Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart

"The science shows that a diet without cholesterol does not necessarily lower a person's cholesterol. in fact, when the cholesterol in a food is high, it is often acting as an anti-oxidant. Eggs are a great food, full of satiating protein and essential fats."

Sometimes a few of us disregard our feelings about those around us. It took the passing of my father to make me realize what he really meant to me. Growing up he literally kicked my !donkey!, belted me, took a switch to the palm of my hand, yanked me around by my hair, etc. After he was gone, I could still hear him calling me during the night. Nobody can tell me it wasn't real!

Losing is gaining. Life is a test. Continuing on, reaps rewards later down the road. And if you can see the road ahead, it's not worth the trip.

Hang in there dear friend, your rewards are still to come.

Quest for Infamy / Some things about qfi that puzzles me

I've played through 1.1 and some things still the same. For instance, the following two things can get a reaction out of Roehm, but the voice says you can't do anything with it right now.

The hanging pot across from Rayford's office.
The well by Rayford's house.

At the old garden where the ruined fountain is, click on the bench and the voice says you open the chest and find 1000 blys.

Long time no posting here. Can't do anything except pray for you and your daughter. Come back only when you absolutely feel up to it.

Now to continue with Darkseed II, I have the original cd when it was new to stores, possibly version 1.2 or so. Dosbox won't install it, says it's a windows game. XP starts to install it, it gets all the way and freezes where it tries to install VTVDM or something like that. Heck, I just know it would work in a dosbox if it was already installed and I could set it to run in win 7. wasn't there also a dos version? Why did some gamers have to have win 3.1, on a vertual drive, before it would install. Should be a modern installer somewhere like the ones Sierra has for their games.

Oh, by the way, here's what I got for furnishing proof of completing Comquests of Camelot way back when:

 :) :) :) Hey Kal, an old article stated that "Scientists have discovered that running causes cancer in laboratory rats". Well DUH... I'm not a GD rat!  >:( Never started distance running untill my late 40's. Prior to that was a sprinter and in high school could do a 5.2 first 50. Once in the army at Ft. Hood, Texas, in a 100 actually slowed down and walked across the finish line and still won the race. All in all, running and fitness has been my savior from a more or less reckless life style. Heck, I once warmed up with 250 lbs. and could do a full squat with 300 lbs. and do a dead lift of 400+ lbs. That eventually caught up with me in older life in the form of three inguinal hernias.

My folks used to rare about my passion for running. Did it six days a week year round, right on through winter, never less than 44 miles a week at lowest and up to 56 and more in the peak competitive season of 26 milers. Started gaming in the late 80's and have invested lots of cash. Used to think Millers High Life was the ultimate brew, then one morning after, opened fridge and saw that last bottle and it looked so green. Things started churning and hurried to the commode. Never fealt so bad since having the mumps years before and I figured it was time to stop.

What ever happened to the good old days when us kids smoked grape vine and chewed rag weed?

Back to gaming, I've discovered that old DOS games run really well in a dos box on Win 7 64 bit. Am now starting up with Conquest Of Camelot: Search For The Holy Grail and I have tons of others, was surprised at how many Sierra games I have.

Sorry about that blooper. As you can see I've corrected it.

Don't recall what category Heavy Metal F.A.A.K. was but it was quite enjoyable.

I didn't know I was supposed to look down to see the lever  :o
Seems like since leaving that level, everything is easier.

Got that taken care of.

Many years ago, when playing QFG4, didn't realize the 3 guys sitting in the Inn at night are characterizations of a very fat Jack Nicholson, an emaciated Rodney Dangerfield, and Royal Dano. Quite amusing to hear them talk!

It works!!!! Graphics aren't as good as a regular windows installed game, but still pretty good. I noticed the Paladin save is available for import, so trying that. Don't ever opt to jump right into adventuring instead of going to the town. You'll get your whatsis handed to you.

Many thanks, old chap  8)

Huh uh. None of that virtual bs for me. Anyhow, when trying to start the game in win 7 64 bit, a message says "static". Even the sierra tools says I have no internet connection. L o L

Installed QT 7.
Applied the 64 bit update for 1.2. Installed the compatability patch for win2k/xp. Set the desktop icon for compatability mode for win 2000 and administrative rights. The intro plays, but still when try to start the game, same message in a small blank square shows "Static" looks like this:

Clicking on the OK, something with sound tries to happen but then nothing.

Found original game disk for QFG5. No matter what, the D#%n thing will not work in win 7 64 bit. Not ever with the 1.2 update and the compatability patch for w2000/xp 64 bit.

Fortunately I recently acquired the old xp 32 bit pc and QFG5 does great after update and compat patch. Only thing I don't like is the game cd is required. There's a fix for 1.0 but not 1.2. Maybe I can change some file to point to the game directory instead of the cd.
