  1. I heard about Autoscore by Wildcat Canyon Software in 1996, but by the time I got a PC in 1999, I couldn't find it (probably because I couldn't remember the name of it).


    "You sing or play the tune. Autoscore writes it down for you. Composing music has never been easier."






  2. Damn you smartphone autocorrect! I said analysis, not anal assist!

      Mine kept going the other way.

  3. Got my blood tested last month. My doctor said on a FaceTime visit today that my Vitamin D level was 71. It was 19 in 2010, so my supplements are working.

  4. If your rubber meets the road and you're still wearing it, you've probably made a huge mistake.

    1. GoldLeader


      I'll say!



      Hmmm...Still a lot easier than saying,   Where the viscoelastic material contacts the vehicular passageway...

      Or you're three feet tall and wearing a Magnum.

  5. I'm still spending most of my time away from the computer, going through boxes and putting things away after moving to a new house in April. Seems to be a never-ending job.

  6. I see stupid people:




    1. GoldLeader


      3 things spring to mind:


      Remember when Jay Leno walked around the streets asking people questions,  only to find out many are as dumb as rocks?


      Remember that beauty pageant question about people not being able to find the U.S. on a map?  (and I thought Where are these people?)


      Remember on Family Guy when Brian becomes a teacher?  He says something about learning, so a girl doesn't end up on the streets being a hooker...And the girl enthusiastically says, "You think I could be a hooker?"  He says,  "In your case,  I'd get the cash up front"

      @xucaen, probably faster than expected . . . in November. :D

      Although I don't remember it per se,   my guess is I watched this on TV in the 70s...We always watched Donny & Marie.

      I watched it on a black and white TV when it was new. I didn't get to see Star Wars until it was rereleased a few years later, so I was grasping at anything Star Wars back then, even if it was horrible.


      I also wanted to have the sexy time with Marie, so I'd watch that show no matter how bad it was from week to week.

      Nicely said...Classy!  I saw her on an infomercial once and I couldn't believe how great she still looks!!

  8. Boring! Enough about back teria! When are we going to learn about front teria?

  9. The moving guys will be moving our stuff tomorrow morning. I'm going to pack up my computer and related things now. I may not be back online for a few days. All depends how fast I can unpack and set everything back up.

      I just wanted to say good luck. We're all counting on you both.

      Internet is working now, but I have boxes piled on my bed and I'm typing this standing up.

      HMOVE has completed it task.  Only took 22 hours.

  10. I saw mommy ingratiating goblins' cause underneath the goblin slop last night.

  11. It's reigning men!




  12. Everyone needs a good Squeeze once in a while:




    1. GoldLeader


      1987?   HMmmm...I saw this video sometime BITD but probably 90s if I had to guess...Mainly remember that guitar bending.

    2. doctorclu


      How funny, just saw this video on Squeeze...




      And saw them in Concert back in December when they toured with Hall & Oats.


      My favorite song of theirs?   Yeh, probably Hourglass and Tempted.

  13. You are one potato shy of a bowling league.

      I'm one fry short of a happy meal.

      I am one chip short of having it on my shoulder...

  14. We moved a few semi-large things to the new house and got the garage door remote working yesterday. The big move is happening some time during the first week of April.

    1. Corby


      for the love of god..why would you move to Canada!!

  15. Ran into some DPC+ batari Basic Atari 2600 scanline problems with a Lillapojkenpåön trick I was trying. I thought I'd have to abandon the trick for a while, but after rewriting that section of my code, looks like the problem is gone. Now the Atari 2600 ball has animated colors. More interesting to look at than the plain old single-color missile I was using before.

  16. Found out yesterday that I won't have to mow the yard at the new house we're renting. The owner pays somebody to do it. No yard work is nothing to sneeze at.

  17. My DPC+ batari Basic game is looking more finished. I got some major things done last night and it's working as expected with no bugs. Now I have to focus on making it more fun, then I'll add sound effects.

    1. Albert


      Look forward to seeing it!

  18. Just found out that we can stop hunting for a house to rent. We got the one we applied for. Ranch style. No stairs to climb.

      I prefer bleu cheese style.

  19. Trying to de-hoard before moving. Is Boot magazine and Family PC magazine from the late 1990s worth keeping?

    1. Leonard Smith

      Leonard Smith

      Kudos for dehoarding!


      Regarding the mags, probably not much value in those.

      Boot magazine, no. BooB magazine, absolutely. schwing GIF

  20. Little Monkee sings:

      Cool - hadn't seen the Circus Boy clip before.


      Admittedly, I hadn't searched for one either.

  21. Killing off a batari Basic DPC+ sprite gives you 4 variables, so I'm covered in gallons of sprite blood. My game will only have 3 sprites at the most. The remaining sprites are frightened, as they should be.

    1. GoldLeader


      I'll tell you what I've told every programmer since 1983...Whatever system, whatever game you're maiming, errr making...Add a Mothership!

  22. The Surprising Secret of Synchronization:




    1. GoldLeader


      Is that that Police album?   haha...

  23. Select at least one attribute to level up.

      No thanks. Can you nerf my peen attribute though? Or maybe add STR so I can keep carrying all this weight. *INSERT BEAVIS LAUGH*
