hehe welcome matey

yeah the classic ole school advents
when the internet didnt exist  was mind racking

Sierra online even made a HINT HOTLINE number (you could dial this in some of their games too)
they charged 4$ a minute for hints on parser and click games


and Lucasarts games well  use everything on everything was the motto
kinda like a tester should

sierras motto
"save early save often"  actually came FROM the coders writing the code\
they just felt it fit in with dying alot in game too!

so games that would or could take weeks or months to beat 
today kids dont want it or it hurts their heads
so they google and beat said games in about 30 min to 1hr

mark darin at ttg's  made his games there with no inv combos just due to the new age kids not understanding
as most of the games required you to mix very odd inv items together.
sam n max example

yep yep

ahh the days of hint books and pay hint lines

What is it you are speaking about?
I dont keep up with FB either...

I'm confused

lemme know!
Id love a colonels bequest or and clara bow remake/vamp
much less kq4!

side note
the revamp of GK1 is terrible
they removed tons of stuff due to modern kids  claiming the game was to "difficult"
welcome kids to ole school gaming sheesh

I would realllllly still love (ye ole school mode) which would add parser input
I believe 2 games now have added this, sadly I cant recall which revamps added it..

and omg kyrandia  but westwood is now EA so gl on rights
id love more of those..
huge hugs all

and please lemme know waahh is going on as im really confused

ok my friends
the real ver of how doth the croc
PS we're all mad here

"How doth the little busy bee   
Improve each shining hour,   
And gather honey all the day   
From every opening flower.   
How skillfully she builds her cell;          
How neat she spreads her wax,   
And labors hard to store it well   
With the sweet food she makes.   
In works of labor or of skill,   
I would be busy too;          
For Satan finds some mischief still   
For idle hands to do.   
In books, or work, or healthful play,   
Let my first years be passed;   
That I may give for every day          
Some good account at last."

mantra for me this week

“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”
-Marcus Aurelius

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Re: Star Trek Picard Series
« on: March 29, 2020, 03:12:13 AM »

sadly, I still cannot find a way to watch any episode of this series... why make it so hard
why is every channel going allie carte  tis' bs imo says:

More entertainment fodder for your shelter-in-place: Star Trek: Picard is now free to non-subscribers to CBS All Access.

Or, put more accurately: Non-paid subscribers. You'll still have to sign up for the CBS streaming service to watch the show, but now there's a coupon code that unlocks Picard: "GIFT."

However, as one commenter noted:

There's no way to sign up without giving them your credit card info and having to manually cancel the subscription in the future. It's no different than any other free trial. Not sure how this is news.

yeah sadly this isnt helpful
comcast charges as much as a movie per rental episode
its nutters i dont want to watch just 1 ep
sighs ty though

Looong before our sun dies Andromeda will collide with us sooo the sun going away isnt a worry

The Andromeda–Milky Way collision is a galactic collision predicted to occur in about 4.5 billion years between two galaxies in the Local Group—the Milky Way (which contains the Solar System and Earth) and the Andromeda Galaxy.

the sun aka sol will last 6-7 billion years or more

my sadness
for me its waking up to mundane mediocrity

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Re: Use windows 7 forever?
« on: February 13, 2020, 05:47:23 PM »
The only reason to use win 10 is when apps and programs require it

even then there will be workarounds

ms tried doing win 10 only games, and riots happened and companies went under due to it

you have windows great! but not using 10? well you cannot play this game, uh no

and yes you can activate any os forever, just updates wont continue, you can even still UPDATE the old 98 xp and me 2000 etc  just no new updates

i prefer 7
it doesnt lock securom and safedisk dvds and cds that i OWN due to the copy protection being seen as malware or holes for them
shall i mention java and flash  sheesh

also the win 10 store offers tons of stuff free that u dont get in win 7
but win 7 rocks
its got built in VM machines it has insane backwards compat and the driver issues in win 10 are abhorrent 
i have win 10 and I wont use it

games will require new direct x 12 etc but again there will be work arounds for it
Black and White 2  the last lionhead game was dx 12 and win 10 only, and they all got laid off and the game was scrapped.

goo microsoft subsidiaries
boo to 10
