Re: What do you drive?

in Milliways
Got an old Merc. Needed a bigger car to haul the dog and various junk around. This one is bit too clean for my taste and now I got to be more careful with the exterior and interior. Otherwise seems to be OK, got it tuned for 650 Nm torque to avoid issues when fully loaded. eklass1.jpg eklass2.jpg

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Outward. What a miserable experience it is. Obviously with poor gear in the start and strong enemies you keep on dying (or in this case, respawning) all the time, but the empty maps and a lot of running around makes it really dull. Oh, did I mention each story mission has a 3 (in-game) day cooling …

Re: Could you build a retro PC right now?

in Milliways
Sure, I have 2-3 empty cases, 4-6 AT PSU's and a few 286, 486 boards. A ton of newer (2k ->) boards, CPU's and PSU's though, but I personally don't consider them retro yet. Also a 2 boxes of audio and graphics cards from 1985->2010. I only say this because I keep them for testing purposes when and …

Re: Backing up all the goodies from the 90's ?

in Milliways
Many of us have probably have some cool hardware stored but what if you want to setup those when you are for instance retired. Good question, but I think in 50-100 years we have some sort of magnetic plug (or contact surface) for all the electric devices and you can't even use anything with a …

Re: Bought these games today

in Milliways
They weren't comnon things in my childhood and certainly not the kind of stuff you could get game manuals etc. photocopied on pocket allowance which was barely enough to get a couple pirated games every other weekend :) I understand, but that doesn't change the fact that I got those exact wheels …

Re: Bought these games today

in Milliways
Black on Red was problematic for uncracked copies at the time. Another game that did this was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, IIRC it had the grail diary painted black over red or something. I think it only works on b&w copies which was the norm back then, but you could still as easily get …

Re: What's in your toolkit?

in Milliways
I see lots of items similar to this on Amazon and Ebay: PCI & ISA Tester Motherboard Anaylzer Card Are they worth the money or toolkit space or effort to decipher the broken English? Well, yes and no. I've had mixed results as some of the error codes change from boot to boot. Also the "code book" …
