  1. That's rough. I hope you get a break soon.
  2. Hey, you okay? If it's any consolation, I think it's awesome that you explored the possibility of it. Anytime I've tried to learn to program I've folded in the first two or three weeks. LOL I like that you took the chair's endurance stats into account. xD
  3. Narrator's voice: But then, the chronojuice stopped flowing...
  4. But Mousie, thou art no thy-lane, In proving foresight may be vain: The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men Gang aft agley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promis’d joy! I don't know what that exactly says, but it's from the poem: "To a Mouse" by Robert Burns. I think it's saying that we get nothing but grief and pain when trying to make plans when we're so unsure of the future. No book ever happened, which is probably just as well. I still look forward to playing all the games I can before death, whenever that is.
  5. Yeah, I seem to remember starting that last screen and just BAM. They've invaded. I must've really had to scramble for my camera to get that screenshot, too.
  6. I don't know if it was ever scanned! Obviously, I was using a copy of the Schach game for this entry. I think Schach has some extra electronics in it, not to mention a little red light, that might have made its emulation less straight-forward than the other games for the Fairchild. Maybe it was never dumped?

    Trip to Modern Arcade

    hahahah nooo, no, nope! I think I found one towards the end of the following month, April.
  8. It really was kind of impressive (though again, I wasn't a very good Chess player). It was those sorts of memory tricks that frustrated the hell out of my parents because I was a mediocre student at best in high school. Decades later, it's clear now that I've always had ADHD and what I was doing then was "hyperfocus". Meaning, if I thought it would impress someone I cared about impressing, I could hyperfocus in the moment, or even over several moments. The less I cared about impressing anyone, the less I found myself able to concentrate on anything.

    stream of conscious

    Yeah... this was not the entry of a mentally healthy person. I'm doing much better now, thank you.
  10. xD I love the discussion above. I hope everyone is still around. Looking back, I'm flattered that there were such informed and creative minds who would take the time to read and comment on my entries. ^ ^
  11. I only vaguely remember enjoying Poker Solitaire! It's frustrating to read some of these entries sometimes as it feels like they were written by someone else. Life and memory is weird. There's something in us that makes us think we've been the same person our whole lives. A continuity of sorts, but what if that's just a particular combination of neurotransmitters that gives us this "feeling" that we've always been the same person? People have head injuries or disorders that can cause complete breaks in who they remember being. Anyway, I'll probably forget, but now I want to try playing that Poker Solitaire game again.
  12. I think that MobyGames (like I've often done) is getting their information from copyright dates. I think RandomTerrain did it by going through ads and articles being published at the time. For me it's primarily a way of "deciding" what games to play. There are just so many available, and I could play them all just by picking a system and slogging through them alphabetically, but I think it's more interesting to see the progression of design. The biggest out of order play so far has been playing Super Breakout waaaaay before its time. I guess it's copyright was based on the first Breakout game.
  13. I know it's Latin, but "ad eternum" for some reason makes me think of cryptocurrency now.
  14. HAHAHAH that's awesomely bad! "If you encounter this bug, um, just restart, we couldn't fix it." xD
  15. I bet I would love the music for those DOS games. I used to really like hearing midi-generated music and enjoy chip-tunes now.
