Coleco
Intellivison
Pong
Merlin

Betamax

CD-i
8 Track
Windows XP
Etc.

I played that one a lot!

There used to be strategy books on that!

What a journey.
Never did. Pretty cool, except the swastika. Those scare me.

What a journey.

OK, raise your hand if you played this game 20 years ago...

I did. But I remembered it as much cooler. Wow. Perceptions change.

It is still cool! Once you start playing it again, you'll be in the game in an instant. It is really addictive and exciting, I'm not into games.

The first official mod, according to this article.

hard to say -- guess one would have to look at commercially released games. spacewar! was constantly modified; it was made in the "all software is a hack and please contribute" early days.

I'm posting this from Internet Explorer 5 on Windows for Workgroups 3.11.

Crazy stuff.

I didn't even know IE 5 ran on 3.11

C'mon, use Mosaic!

Yeah, you need to use one that was available at the time 3.11 was new. IE5 is cheating.

I did install Netscape 4.08 but it crashed on a bunch of stuff.

IE 5 was the final version of IE released for 16-bit Windows.

Wow. And what are you running this on? And maybe more importantly... Why?

I installed it in VMWare on my MacBook Pro.

Why? I have no good answer to that.

You're a sick sick man. I suppose next you'll install DOS 1.0 just to see if you can.

DOS 1.0 didn't support Hard Drives.

Hard Drives? Do you mean Winchester disks?

Now that's a term I haven't heard in a while.

We're so retro we weren't even born yet.
