Re: What are you eating/drinking? (the vogons food thread)

One of my great weaknesses is German food . I just love it. There is this tiny German restaurant I would go to in my hometown and the super nice German lady who owned it would make this amazing homemade plum cake. I could get very fat eating that so I never learned the recipe. lol Now that's a …

Since we're headed for Autumn here in central Europe, I'm eating seasonally appropriate Aachener Printen . This is a type of gingerbread seasoned with "a variety of ingredients including cinnamon, aniseed, clove, cardamom, coriander, allspice and also ginger", however, the English Wikipedia article …

Terrific game, great atmosphere and gameplay. Played it when it launched. Finished it with each character. I kept hoping for a sequeal and searching for something similar to play after finishing it (several times). "Enclave" came to the rescue, although it is not the same... Another game I love …

Hmmm... thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I do love anchovies but I use whole filets and I spend a bit more on them because I think that the expensive ones somehow taste better. But they definitely are a concentrate or flavouring rather than something you eat straight (except on pizza, obviously). …

Oof.. I wish I could get proper crab where I live. When we where visiting my wife's grandmother in California some years ago we went up the coast and ended up at a place called Barbara's Fish Trap in Half Moon Bay. Had a great blue crab sandwich there. The only way to get crab here is by ordering …

We’re trying to get through a huge bag of lemons a neighbour gave us so I did lemon chicken last night. I used ‘chicken tenders’ instead of my usual thighs and regretted it, thighs just can’t be beat. If you have a bunch of lemons, like lemon chicken and you can stand to wait 3-4 weeks you could …

Ports of Call is a pretty fun sim game, imo. I don't see it talked about incredibly often. It's available for Amiga and IBM PC , both are good though I think the Amiga version has generally better animation and sound. I remember a family friend showing me this one on his PC. I was never much into …

One game I don't see people discussing is SeVerance. I haven't played it in years but I remember playing, replaying it and even did some maps for it. If I remember correctly the map editor was 'inverted' you actually cut material out rather than add walls to a room. Also graphics were mind blowing …

I really like Smitten Kitchen which is, as kitchen blogs go, fairly unpretentious and I have yet to cook one of Deb Perelmanns recipes that left me feeling underwhelmed. A recent discovery was that you can just use whole canned tomatoes for salsa. Before I had either hand chopped fresh tomatoes, …

I grew up near Siegburg in NRW which is represented by the letters "SU" on the plates. Popular choices of for license plates included "SU-RF", "SU-FF" (as a noun this translates to "boozing, drink") or "SU-CK"... In cologne ("K") there are a surprising number of license plates with "K-KK"... I …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

Unfortunately few months have passed since i originally took the laptop apart and i completely forgotten how to put everything back together, especially all those tiny pieces of shielding and plastic which covered the motherboard. Hi there. I've taken the 400CDT apart and put it back together using …

Re: What game are you playing now?

It's PC speaker and Tandy only, sadly. Well.. that kind of sucks. The P Speaker is really annoying for playing anything at night when the rest of the household is asleep. I will probably end up playing Azure bonds through Pools on Amiga then. Which is just as well, I have Sİlver Blades and Pools of …

Re: Retro flight sim playthroughs

in Milliways
I wonder how many flight simulators had a proper "high resolution" (=640*350) EGA version... also, I wonder if any VGA flight simulator chose 640*480@16 colours instead of 320*200@256 colours. That would be a short but interesting list. Of the top of my head I only know this one: https://www. …

I have forgotten how realistic and difficult Red Baron II is. It's me, with all realism turned down, desperately pursuing a novice enemy, and still can't bring him down. https://i.postimg.cc/prBPytnj/Baron-2021-01-07-22-29-30-46.jpg Why don't you just stand still, you little f$&ker! Fokker?

Again, I am not a troll. I however do acknowledge that I am a person with very direct, aggressive and polemic opinions and this causes such reactions. That’s my latin personality, I’m half brazilian, half spanish. I do not expect you to understand that. I never acted like “I never knew it would …

Alright, I'm about to start on my wild boar spareribs with gravy, y'all! https://www.wild-auf-wild.de/content/wildschwein-spareribs Sides will be garlicky mashed potatoes and cooked red cabbage as a nod to German Christmas. Merry Christmas and all that. Maybe this time I'll remember to take a …
