Thanks for the kind words
You'd think internet appointments would be EASIER wouldn't you?
SO SORRY for the delay... long story short I'm sure a couple of folks here know about the after x-mas mash where everybody's new AND old stuff ends up shifting through my "I don't do phones" routine from Adaptation, replace the word fish in the done with fish story to phone and you got it pegged
That Creative Zen is looking rough for a conn... but it's spinning cookies?
Jumper pins and dip switches and ribbon, OH MY
A half dozen laptops and half that desk boxes later I got to use MY x-mas present a rath 7700 series to replace integrated 4400 on board and a 450 watt power supply to push it and leave juice for me gadgets
Happy video to me... never been in this generation... well whatever they've got pushing the os'es runnin 8 but touch screen... on a desktop... good one M$, 7 gets a bonus life it seems to me
My windows exp went from a 4.0 on vid to a 7.9 and picked up the Inspiron maxed on processor and Ram soooo my drag point is the hard disk and lets not forget a PCI open and slave CD spot
Was gonna slip in a zip... then thought again
My first storage was a GE portable cassette player with a close eye on the counter and fingers crossed for the acoustic tones
"NO you can't turn the music up"
How do you think hard drives go in frezers?
Sympathetic magic is what... and batteries
SO that being said I really am sorry again as I don't want folks to think they have applied efforts in vain in my behalf... just kept it slow and steady and lost narry a patient one on the table
A couple of gadgets may not make it through triage... maybe so though, I gotta semi-clear desk apart from me HP procedure that'll hum w/o hinder now that I won't have to touch it...
The old magic dies hard and something says DON'T MOVE IT when disk operations are in play
And outta what got thrown away I got a pocket pc (meh... maybe) and not one but TWO IBM not Lenovo IBM ThinkPad 760's
NAAAAA says I
Post test BEEP says they... ThinkPads are vanilla my tuckus the one multimedia laptop I ever got new is now undergoing "what can I save off her" surgery and a new drive
These 760's might just kill a man if I'z backed into a corner
And now my desk actually runs my games... a tough run of Civ V was to be expected but artifacts all over Civ IV was a bit much with 8 gigs ram and 4 quad core processor/s ? (how are they threading these apps today as Auto CAD and... that's it for multi-threaded apps not so very it seems)
Pacing the thing would be more promising if I didn't half pan it already
Abstract doesn't meant make it up as you go... archers shooting over cities?
Across the English Channel?
No scale at all
Did any of the lot what oppted hexes ever play a wargame on tabletop?
Pretty pictures... lovely background music... computer seems unable to play its game
Game design a noble way to starve then "I" go eclectic and insist on pen and paper table top too
Brats are gonna sit face to face... and no more orc fodder from thin air or focus souly on the battle
Violence is harmful not gold coins and a level and war is NOT glorious and I can't let kids think otherwise
Constructive play options is all
I'll report for the benefit of Mr Kite and any other wanders what follow down this path
Donkey Shines Sir
Then I got this Robosapien and SpyTech infra red goggles... I've got a TON of womotes and... eh maybe finish closing up me girl and generally
