Games on my "Must Get" List: Revisited

Posted by: AllYorBaseRBelong2Us on Sun Apr 28 02:25:48 2019.

A short while ago, the Mighty AYB produced a short list of games he intended to r00l!!!

In no particular order:
1)Dungeon Siege
2)Neverwinter Nights
3)Civilization III
4)Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

They should all be released in the next several months

of these, only CivIII and NeverSleepNights are going to be released on the Mac.

This thread has been informative.

State of the Macintosh. It kind of sucks.

Posted by: AllYorBaseRBelong2Us on Sun Apr 28 02:24:00 2019.

I think it really does. Okay, maybe its not that bad, but the Trashcan MacPro innovated itself into wall and as the so-called ’flagship’ seems more like an afterthought that most people have forgotten it actually sells

As for the Macbook Pro except for the pricetag and the logo, there’s really not much to distinguish it. Well no, that’s not quite right, there is the issue of requiring a fanny pack full of adapters for the thing...Everyone is doing grey-tone minimalism now, and it is Apple that has been the one following along with the crowd.

The iMac still stands out and the Macbook looks decent.
But with muted tones the latter looks like a compromise.

Time for an update to the Sun Strategy Spinner?

Posted by: AllYorBaseRBelong2Us on Sun Sep 3 21:54:42 2017.

The decade(s) long circling in the toilet bowl of relevancy has essentially ceased. It is now falling into the Final gulp of the flush into the forgotten realm where Standard Oil, Enron, and Delorean have gone (Oh, and Be too)

maybe someone should just paste this to a tombstone...

You can make new posts to the forum again!

Posted by: Jeremy Reimer on Tue Mar 22 15:30:15 2016.

Wow, I’m so sorry I didn’t fix this sooner!

I made a change a while back to how the blog creates content pages (which also posts to the forum, since they are one and the same), not realizing that I also had to change the page that makes a new forum post as well. Because normally I just made new blog posts, I never thought to check it. Bad developer, no cookie for you!

Anyway I fixed it. Sorry about that.

About me

I'm a writer and a web developer. You may have read my articles at Ars Technica, where I write about the Amiga computer, video games such Starcraft, and the history of personal computing.

I write science fiction novels and short stories. You can read more about them here.

I'm also the creator of the rapid application development framework newLISP on Rockets, which powers this blog and a number of other sites.

I do a podcast with my friend Terry Palfrey called Knotty Geeks, where we focus on the 'big picture' impact of technology on our lives, with the two core themes being acceleration and convergence.
