Re: Drove 101 miles and picked up an Amiga 500 last Friday

Bizarre indeed. Looks like it's complete though. Have you had a chance to look over the games and "experiments"? Is predicting the weather accurate?

Re: Tiny Island Survival

^I think it is. It's not a bad game, as many have rated it higher than I have. Might still be worth checking out.

Hope the guy comes up with area #4 soon. It's been six months since there was a bug fix for an update though.

Tiny Island Survival

I downloaded this game for my iPhone last month, plus there's also an online version available to play. The setup and story are intriguing enough. It bills itself as all play areas fitting onto one screen, so even if playing on a phone you can still see everything. Game commands are simple, as prett...

Sometimes it just happens. Maybe the company that released it didn't have much of an advertising budget for it?

Looks cool indeed, with all the tasks and all it's like a bunch of mini-games.

Re: Picked up this IBM 5160 XT lot

Did you neglect to put up pics? I'm not seeing them.

Great deal though! Especially in regards to the old, but still working monitor!

Re: Dungeon synth and dark ambient music

I must admit that I've never listed to anything like it before, but I like it! That's good! :) There's tons of different kinds too, as I've listened to many online concerts since and there's been a pretty good mix of artists. Great story on how you found and got into that type of music! It's so uni...

Dungeon synth and dark ambient music

Don't know what others will think of stuff like this but I thought I'd post about it. Hopefully it's not just a rock 'n roll crowd here. If not and people will ever return at least they'll get a bit of new stuff to check out :) An artist named Mortiis started off as the bassist for the death/thrash ...

Re: Vector Runner

No, I don't know how that works. Might have to check with the Dig Your Own Grave guys, the ones who made it to see if there's a way from them. Really amazing that link still works though!

That's too bad. Everyone should be able to get into the arcade now, or at least I can.

I'm not seeing it but when I found a post in regards to "Demon Solitaire" (sounds great!) and clicked on it it said I didn't have permission to access it.

Re: Nothing like logging onto a BBS on the original hardware!

I need to watch more myself. Someone posted about it years ago and I only watched part 1. But then at times I'd forgotten about it.

And you're welcome! It was pretty well done.
