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!
It is pretty big. I really don’t think I need the whole TB but it was on sale and I had $25 bucks in rewards certs from Best Buy so it was pretty cheap compared to even the other 1TB drives and per gig cheaper than the 500GB drives.
I’m still kind of having trouble wrapping my head around it really. I remember my Dad bringing home those giant serving platter sized ‘floppies’ that were something like 16KB.
I’m still a little freaked by my 30GB iPod with video.
I think that the system should stay the way it is. The states should ask for assistance. If they don’t it’s their fault, not the federal government. We do not need to have more bureacracy. Personally, I believe it was the Louisiana’s fault the situation wasn’t handled properly along with FEMA. It would be a violation of states’ rights to use Bush’s plan imo.
The kicker is this, though: there was no poop actually in the toilet bowl. Everywhere else, but not there. What WAS in the toilet was his soiled underwear that he had abandoned.
FYI I just about died of laughter after reading this LOL
It sounds like to me he flushed the toilet first, and then must have left the underwear in there after.
LOL… that said never leave an underpant behind!
