Re: Look in the loft

There you go - that's CPC's for you :P

Seriously though, if you learned to bash the C64 metal in 6510 assembly, that taught a lot of the underlying principles for playing with Arduinos and the like.

And the games were frankly more fun. And the SID chip..And $D011 raster effects that needed the exact amount of NOP's to work..

Re: Arkintoofle Minor

is a planet which is home to the Hingefreel race. This race attempted to build ships powered by bad news, as this has the well-known ability to travel faster than light. However, the idea was soon abandoned as the ships were unwelcome wherever they landed (or attempted to do so).

Google drops poker face, allows gambling apps on Play Store

AceRimmer1980
Facepalm

Re: Is there always an element of chance in poker?

Many games have *an element* of chance. I have never heard backgammon described as 'gambling', even with random dice throws.

If chance is all there is, then yes, it's gambling. Betting on horse racing is gambling, because you're watching the gee-gees from a distance, and you have no influence over the outcome.

Poker is considered gaming,not gambling, because all the players have the same element of chance, and you are *actively taking part and playing the game yourself*. If you have more skill, then you will win more often than not. Explain how pro poker players consistently win against random online players.
