Re: Interview with "last XP fan"

Oh, it's fun sticking a non-patched XP machine directly on the internet and watching it get overrun by malware within a matter of minutes. BS do you care to wager? XP can tip toe through the net without issue if you know what your doing. I've heard this BS for years, I guess the internet doesn't …

Re: Random weird PC tales

About... ten years ago I was supposed to restore a huge Oracle dump file to a new server. The dump file was stored in an external hard drive, and the server was located right under the KVM switch (which is slightly under chest-level), with nothing else beneath it down to the rack floor. So I have to …

Re: Bring back the game manuals!

The problem with game manuals that come out of the box is that they're not always spiral-bound. Blue Max: Aces of the Great War manual, for example, is paperback, which requires you to bend the paper to read them. https://i.postimg.cc/Y2bcy2GB/game-manuals-genuine.jpg Paperback (left) isn't really …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

I'm curious, by the way: have any of you seen any episodes of Crusade , the shortlived Babylon 5 spinoff? I actually liked it. It definitely felt part of the Babylon 5 universe, while at the same time having a unique atmosphere of its own. I quickly warmed up to the cast. Also, the music for it was …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

Fiction of any kind = Non-fiction+time. Given enough time the fiction becomes real. Babylon 5 is just a human-generated fantasy, and I am just a person who tries to make it real. The best stories are those with no happy endings, because death is never a happy ending, it is a realistic ending. This …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

You must not be much of a Babylon 5 fan otherwise you'd know about Delenn. Ah, Delenn. If I ever fell in love with a fictional character, it was definitely Delenn. :laughing: I would have to say I was mainly an Ivanova man. Though I found a slight leaning toward Talia Winters for a bit, but she was …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

You must not be much of a Babylon 5 fan otherwise you'd know about Delenn. Ah, Delenn. If I ever fell in love with a fictional character, it was definitely Delenn. :laughing: I remember, it was around 1996 or perhaps 1997. I was the head of the Souvenir Division in the university's student …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I never loved CRT. Never did, never do, and perhaps never will. First, even with excellent CRT monitors like Mitsubishi Diamondtron, I can always see individual pixels. Yes, I can always see that the picture displayed in the monitor is made up of pixels. Less noticeable in dynamic scenes like games, …

Re: Favorite forgotten games

Navy Strike. It is quite an obscure game, but I like its strategy game elements. Come to think of it, I always love flight sim/strategy hybrid like Their Finest Hour, Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe, Reach for the Skies, and Total Air War. Knights of the Sky. It was overshadowed by Red Baron during …
