no, you are correct, the same game :)
I played this on my Atari ST loads and loads, it certainly got easier when someone told me you could SAY "TAXI" to move about, rather than getting stabbed or run over :)
according to various magazine walkthroughs, it's possible to finish the game with 204 out of 200 points by doing various daft things, one of which is ringing the (real at the time) sierra help line from the pay phone.
I'd say an IP address is no more personal to me than the number of a hotel room I stayed in last month, or the ticket number for the deli counter I had yesterday.
'shirley' the fact that its perfectly feasable that tomorrow someone else might have the IP I have today means that it's transient info at best ?
only an offence on public land.
plenty of people live in colder climates than us, starting your car from the kitchen to warm it up while it's parked on the drive can be quite handy.
i was at uni just before browsers took off (we had mozilla 0.8 but it didn't do much) so ftp was a big thing for me and my atari disk swapping friends back then. much easier to dump an MSA disk image on an ftp server and email the directory link then post a jiffy bag across europe :)
I've got a few MFM atari drives circa 1986-7 here and I've just removed a scsi drive from an atari Stacy4 'laptop' in order to backup the data as the interface card is a bit wonky, thats probably circa 1988, and still works. stupidly loud though.
It's the old 'deny a story headline' trick
Viz magazine takes it to it's logical conclusion with headlines such as:
"Royal press office denies Queen addicted to crack cocaine"
and so on. The story is true enough, but gives the impression of something else.
the laziest of lazy journalism.
back in the eighties
there were quite a few cases where the police were targetting skateboarders with the same law, basically the 'willfully using a carriage of any kind' bit. I'm not sure if anybody ever got prosecuted, I assume not as there were never any followup articles in the skate mags of the time. Always seemed a bit petty to me, stopping people under sixteen and threatening them with court, for riding a board on the pavement ...
I use truecrypt on my machines - I encrypt the whole drive. I haven't seen any kind of performance hit and the only inconvenience is typing an extra password at boot. As far as I'm aware, this is pretty secure and I also have the paranoids option of adding more hidden volumes with plauable denaiability sub volumes hidden inside them.
Obviously, this doesn't cover me using USB sticks etc, but I feel confident enough that if my computers did get stolen, none of my data would be able to be (easily) recovered without my password.
I love the fact that
it has exceeded it's mission time by over -five years- :)
fingers crossed that it can dig itself out, the pics these rovers send back are staggering.
