Is there any way to bookmark a topic without watching it? Or to manage notifications for individual watched topics? For example, I can save searches on ebay, but I can then choose if I want to have email notifications and phone notifications for any given search. TIA

Think of drawing on newspaper type paper with a felt-tip or fibre-tip pen, if you draw a line fast, it's thin, if you draw it slow it's thick where the ink soaks in. It's kinda the same with …

Re: FastDoom. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

First of all, I think you're confused about what this past update was about; it's not making anything faster per se, it's just removing the built-in framerate limit in the Doom Engine for newer, faster PCs that are able to take advantage of that. It's not giving more speed to slower older PCs. This …
