Yea, I remember those days too.Â The best game out there was a text based Star Trek game called Space Wars because of possible copyright infringement.Â It took about one minute to make a single move or fire a torpeedo.Â If you warped into a sector with more than two Klingon ships, you’d better use phasers and knock them out in a single salvo or you may not get a second chance.
We had that game on our high school PDP-8 computer. The key was to do a scan of the entire universe so you knew where the klingon’s were. We had a grid made the represented that universive size, and could determine the number of units to warp to each occupied space. Also used photon torpedos to pick off individual klingon ships instead of phasers that used lots of power.
I believe we did clear the galaxy once, but it was a lot of work to do so!
No, the address in not correct. As you say, Complejo de la Moncloa is correct (I also checked the official page)
But there is not “Republic of Spain” since 1939. That country doesn’t exist now. Spain, now, is a kingdom and her king is Juan Carlos I. That should say “Kingdom of Spain”. It’s funny because it’s not the first time: Jeb Bush also made the same mistake in a conference in Spain a couple of years ago, and in a tennis championship in Australia, they put the republican national music (Himno de Riego) instead the used now (Marcha Real). Imagine the face of Spannish tennists :lol:
And Rodriguez Zapatero is not the Prime Minister. He is the President of the Government (even if he makes basically the same than UK Primer Minister)
Is also funny that such errors sometimes happen in Spain. Not the republican"" error, but sending letters to a non-existant minister or to a place where the official building was there 5 years ago but now is in another place 😄
Thanks for finding time to comment Cromwell.
The 30th Jan, and this event,is not an anniversary I forget: it is Al’s father’s birthday. He has always enjoyed its place as he is anti-monarchist and anti privilege, despite his (state funded) public and Oxford education. It is funny as his wife’s parents worked in the colonies after the war, so politically they do not see eye to eye!
