Re: What game are you playing now?

Getting back into the original "The Sims" on the Dell Dimension 3000 Pentium 4 system I just built out.

Re: DOSbox Frontends for Windows XP

The Ultima series is one I ought to look at, although back then, something turned me off after the first or second of them! I loved Might & Magic, and enjoyed some of the Wizardry games, but those seemed very tough, and I had to be in a really special mood to play them! I never finished one of them …

Re: DOSbox Frontends for Windows XP

I played RPGs, and an occasional deep space strategy game, all strictly PC-oriented. Never owned any console systems. D.O.G. appeared to be oriented toward the earlier gaming console stuff, and didn't get much attention when I was trying to research some of the front ends that the DOSbox Wiki …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Not today but went to Cap'N'Games almost a week ago and successfully fixed out Wii (later black model with no GameCube ports - RVL I think?), replaced the optical drive. I then took the two other parts units - an older black unit with GameCube ports that still worked but had a broken face, and a …

I rarely talk about this, but I drive my 1st car still, a 1993 Ford Explorer Sport 5-speed 2wd. 308K on the odometer and it still runs, drives, and looks really nice, passes smog, and still gets Window sticker gas mileage (18-23mpg, made it to 23.9mpg once driving conservatively). Not a garage queen …

Re: Which browser do you use?

Vintage Boxes = Links Modern Boxes = Firefox iMac = Safari Phone = Chrome (it is a Google Pixel 3 after all) I'm actually almost able to use LInks as a normal browser on my old machines. I use Firefox for the Adblock and Noscript additions. I'm aware Chrome and Edge have similar stuff for them, but …
