Good old Chuck Y's Air Combat

The mission builder was brilliant. To this day can always remember the last option -

Miranda memories - not all nice

Same here at Uni. It was our first language taught so we could see the difference in paradigms, with Ada next. I remember some sadistic exercise in converting decimal to roman numerals via FP, using Miranda.

I've only recently stopped taking the medication for those flashbacks, 22 years later ...

good article

Much better E:D article by this author than Sharwood. Less vitriol for a start, more objective.

Keep it up El Reg.

No mention in Eurogamer ...

funny that ? prob because it's a non event.

Suggest El Reg avoids forum reporting, it's full of self-entitled loons moaning at the moment about how it's the games fault when they crash and have no credits for insurance buy-back, etc.

nuts tightening

Do you think the local Mayor has to follow IKEA's advice, and "periodically tighten the screws to ensure stability" on the road signs ?

Coat taken and taxi booked - "To the Market Hall Alfred! Must purchase more tat-based crack"

How the clammy claws of Novell NetWare were torn from today's networks

IIRC IPX/SPX didn't scale very well, whereas TCP/IP did. I remember routers having to be configured for IPX/SPX and it was all broadcast, very chatty, just what you need for a network protocol lol.

Doom LANs with ipxspx - those were the days indeed.

Re: Widows 8?

I thought it was a reference to the crime drama, "She's out - in - out - in - out". Poor old Dolly Rawlings.
