Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

in Milliways
. You seem to not want to un-evade the main point which is that these middlemen, they are useless, they don't produce anything, they are harmful, they are unneeded. They don't bring anything positive to the table and this is the point you were skillfully pretending to not be there. No evasion, such …

Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

You're missing the point. On multiple levels. So nevermind that. I can't be bothered to untangle all the spaghetti you create. We were conversing, not arguing. When you no longer have an answer, whether it's not wanting to read, not wanting to or being able to comprehend nor compose or whatever, it …

Re: Members of Vogons, what shows do you currently watch?

But whenever possible, I try to get physical copies of films. Being an observer of IT since the 1990s, I have reasons for that. I learned that about everything that's online could be altered or lost eventually. Let's just think of the original Star Wars episode, which was altered postmortem so …

The best way I could think of would be to somehow block part of the sun irradiating Venus (think something like a layer of satellites blocking the sun partially) to cool Venus down before actually going to the surface to start building most of the stuff we'd need. Not sure how long it would …

Still doesn't change the fact they don't add any actual value and do nothing but disrupt the market. I can't think of a single way in which this is actually a positive influence. And for some it may feel like it's just a bit unpleasant but for some it may be like as if you're going to the …

Re: 2003-2004 update

Note - I'm obviously only interested in playing games from that era and earlier, a bit beyond (whatever's possible) and old 90's DOS games (via DOSbox mostly). Older games like, say, Quake II, run at 1920x1200 and everything at max but not sure about HL2, Doom 3, Far Cry, Crysis. then its good to …

Re: Members of Vogons, what shows do you currently watch?

Well I never watched the X-Files, but I did see the last 9 episodes, all but the final episode, of the Fringe. It was goofy, but at least a little funny. Please don't spoil the very ending. Many years ago we had Kolchak: the Night Stalker. As a pre pubescent moron I was quite taken with it. I …

Venus would certainly be a challenge, mostly in how to build terraforming equipment that could survive the crazy surface temperatures of Venus along with surviving the acid corrosion. Its not impossible but certainly beyond our current technology, Venus itself is quite an interesting enigma. If I …

I think zyzzle is talking specifically about scalpers, who usually have enough money to buy all the stock they can find of a certain product until it's not available anywhere else and then they resell it at overinflated prices. So I definitely sympathize with him on that, since these scumbags are …

Mars's problems (low gravity, distance from sun) don't preclude it from terraforming but there is an alternative - Venus gets plenty of sun, gravity close to Earths. Terraforming seems as much if not a greater challenge but as both seem multi-generational it's not something anyone could see a ' …

Imagine being able to get in your own car and drive from one place to another - no GPS or network connected devices, no mobile phones linking up to various masts and triangulating position, no always-on cctv recording number plates every junction or so. and if your car did falter, well a set of …

Re: PC Case supply drying up?

Sorry to resurrect this zombie, but I'd like to let you know that this Indigogo campaign seems to be fraud after all. It set me back 314 USD and two years of waiting. Fool me once, shame on me... lessons learned. that's a shame, whether intentional fraud or not it does look like a failed project …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

I was born in 97 so I didn't really experience the 90s, but something I say kinda in line with this thread is that I miss well forums. Nowadays everything is on consolidated on some giant social media or even discord. forums just aren't much of a thing anymore. And with sites that have both …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I really can't stand adventure games where you can die / end up in an unwinnable situation. collect the clipboard in the 3rd room or you can't get past the 93rd room! that kind of thing annoys me - the 'gotcha' puzzles that have no reasonable means of avoidance except experiencing it once, reading …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

I actually like 70's for most movies and some of the 80's, because that whole Car-movie genre is my favorite... i like 'practical effects' and cgi, but prefer the former when it comes to the broad category of things that happen on earth at a human scale, like car stuff. I also prefer the stunts …
