You don't know me or anything about me, and are therefore not entitled to have an opinion of me.
As you say, "f*ck off".
I would contend that playing a harmless game which all of a family can enjoy while getting some fresh air and exercise is a rather better use of time and money than sitting in front of the googlebox getting pissed.
"That was about 1500BCE though, and this is 200BC so it's unlikely the device is Minoan/Atlantean in origin."
No, the author stated that this was the first century before Christ. I assume the last century before Christ was about 2100 to 2000 years ago, but the first century before Christ must have been a lot longer ago than even your 1500BCE, right?
MP600. I fudged it (for printing, at least) with some effort, but not before being browbeaten by a certain domestic user for having "chosen" to accept the unwanted OS "upgrade", when she then couldn't print or scan anything. Interestingly, I see the MP600 support page on Canon's uk website now seems to offer win10 32- & 64-bit drivers.
Maybe I should check again and see whether the stupid machine now recognizes my Galaxy S5 too? Maybe too much to ask.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - DNA
Not entirely inaccurate though:
"ARM Evaluation System
As one of the first production RISC processors, the ARM Evaluation System was part of the development programme leading to the Acorn Archimedes and its early Arthur operating system. It was not branded "BBC", but it is physically contained within the family's "cheese wedge" case. The ARM 1 processor was clocked at 8 MHz, and was fitted with 2 MB or 4 MB of RAM.
In 2006 a new ARM processor board using an ARM7TDMI processor was designed and sold, without an enclosure but able to fit within the original case."
