Re: The 100% Unofficial Thread

It's great to be able to say I've finally released my debut album on CD. It only took me nearly 10 years to record (there was a lot of procrastination involved). It's goofy industrial noise using vocals and kitchen utensils. The project name is a combo of two of my nicknames (the 2nd also being the ...

Re: Who wants to play Worms+ (Reinforcements/United) over the Internet?

There was no WormNET back then. He's playing over LAN, hence the need for Tunngle.

Re: What are you dream1❼ng?

While Dream17 was offline, I visited the TUS forum more and rediscovered the 'WA dreams' thread there, which must've prompted me to have all these Worms-related dreams: I had a dream about playing a couple of games of standard/Intermediate-type schemes, one of which was called simply "Worms". Someho...

I still love the forum format for categorised topics that get stretched out over decades. No chat app is gonna be a replacement for that.

Re: The 100% Unofficial Thread

I still use IRC but only read a fraction of what's said on there. Hard to justify having more programs running. Meanwhile, after talking to my Dad, I have GPS coordinates of where I was born, accurate to within about 10 metres: https://maps.google.com/maps?ll=-41.30817,174.78063&q=-41.30817,174.7806...

Re: What are you dream1❼ng?

I dreamt I was at a fish 'n' chip cafe in rural New Zealand and bought the weirdest items they had, including two battered insects on sticks which I decided to eat first. I started with the head in one bite as that seemed less gross than nibbling on it. I can't recall ever dreaming a taste so vividl...

Re: Positive Events and Occurrences 3.0

Unfortunately writing to the hard drive has stuffed it a bit now, but we can still play games on disks or maybe find a replacement. I was mainly interested in the obscure IBM collection of BASIC games and programs we had, including this sing-a-long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyh-57neUEY There ...

Switched on our old 1986 PC after just a quick dust off: IT WORKS BITCHES! Big middle finger to third millennium electronics there. It's a Super Star XT-6 made in Taiwan - an IBM XT clone which infringed on a patent or two. https://i.imgur.com/YUhz6S3.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3zNAgE9.jpg This is the ...

Re: What are you dream1❼ng?

I had a dream about harvesting tiberium in a Command & Conquer game, which is really weird as I haven't played any of those for about a decade at least.

Re: What are you dream1❼ng?

I had a geographically demented dream. Parts of Australia were further south than New Zealand and much closer. Apparently we finally got off our arses and built the bridge proposed by Liz Shaw. 10 hr drive from Invercargill to Victoria & Tasmania, great for holidays. In Aus the street was out of pro...

Finding out a piece of info I've been waiting 25 years for

I had a friend through most of primary & high school who hated his middle name and refused to ever tell us what it was. His little brother was trained not to reveal it for fear of severe consequences. Turns out he's now a published scientist and said middle name is all over the web. I was expecting ...

Re: General Videogame Gabbin' 2: Word Beginning With R

9 months later and I'm playing Road Redemption again. It's still in early access but there was a major update in April. So it's like I've played 3 versions of the game already... I kinda like this early access thing, and I guess it motivates the developers too having people playing their game. It's ...

Re: What are you dream1❼ng?

I dreamt the laughable 'band' J Solo Project had two more failed gigs in Auckland (at the actual one last year IRL they mucked around for an hour with technical difficulties before giving up). Apparently nobody had shown up to one, so he managed to jump on the bill of a show the next night (no doubt...
