  1. I hope your able to find that cassette; the game's already preserved, but the tape's lost. See if that trailer has a stereo; tapes may be near it. Also check book cabinets for the coloring book. Even if it's covered in mold you could make scans for preservation.
  2. At least $99 is better than $299.
  3. Nice interview; he seems mellower than I expected. Good to know the ST game system would've cost too much. Good info on the Panther too; wonder what problems it had.
  4. Probably an off-brand PC clone, running DOS. GW-Basic, simple stuff like this: 10 CLS 20 PRINT "Hello!" 30 PRINT "Today is" DATE 40 PRINT "It is" TIME "O'clock" 50 GOTO 10
  5. The large font is a bit much... Maybe he should alphabetize his listings? Would that help?
  6. My website has had 100,000 views! https://neocities.org/site/websitering

      I can't wait until Google goes back to normal and sends us all more visitors.

  7. I like his website. I'd prefer for most websites to be like his. Simple to maintain & load.
  8. Walk right up & say "Hello 2600!" https://images.app.goo.gl/DgGvVfS9Hbfe7LTh9
  9. Is it weird that RealPlayer is outlasting Flash?

      And that's all it was designed for; the web streaming stuff was tacked on because it seemed cool at the time.

      It just so happens that Newgrounds just made their own Flash Player, and they are working on a better one called Ruffle.

      Looks like Adobe made activation codes for Flash 2004 avaliable for free: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/macromedia-legacy-activation-error.html

  10. I've always thought the Telstar Arcade looked really cool.

  12. There was another texture mapped racer: I'd say that's about the best, tho the programmer did say he could've got the frame rate a bit higher with more time to optimize it.
  13. When you're programming something yourself you're sometimes a bit too close to see all the faults.
  14. For some reason I want a voxel game where you're leading a sled team through mountains in the Yukon...
  15. Why was Butterfree a memorial Pokemon?

      Memorable! I meant memorable! I don't know if this is autocorrect's fault, but I'll blame it anyways!

  16. "Slow Load Times," Or "Stadia's Commin' & I Don't Care"

    Based on "Blue Tail Fly," a.k.a. "Jimmy Crack Corn"

    Stadia's commin' & I don't care
    Stadia's commin' & I don't care
    Stadia's commin' & I don't care
    A streaming console's dumb!

    Verse 1:
    When I was a lad I didn't wait
    Cartridge load times were just great!
    I flip a switch, & then I'd play, 
    No waiting back in my day!


    Verse 2:
    Then disks came out; I was a teen
    We thought that they were really keen
    But then we found, don'tcha kno'
    CDs load really slow!


    Verse 3
    Now all games ya must install
    I think it means consoles' fall
    But Google's engineers think they have a fix
    After watching too much Netflix!


    Verse 4
    Alphabet thinks you can stream a game
    You ask me that's pretty lame
    How can so many users find
    Enough server time?


    Verse 5
    They announced their games the other day
    There's nothing I would like to play
    They're things we've all seen before
    I think we should show them the door!

    (Chorus, repeat till end)

      Doesn't look like anyone's bothered to update the design or layout or navigation for years. Sadly that's what happens if you're not willing to get with the times. z.z

      Weirdly I like that style more than most modern sites. 

  19. Happy New Year!

  20. Excite.com's accepting new email accounts again.

  21. Just Google "COPPA YouTube." Not saying more than that right now, to avoid politics.

  23. I said quesadillas are better, & generally that's true, but Fuzzy's quesadillas are soggy, so if you go there get Tacos. Their chips are amazing tho. Love that white cheddar.
