Official Classic servers coming for World of Warcraft. I don't think that anybody else on these boards cares anymore, but I do!

What does classic server mean? (I assume not OS 9?)

In the vanilla WoW (private server) community classic generally meant WoW the way it was just before the first expansion. So, original WoW, presumably on more modern software. No Burning Crusade, or anything after. No flying, no mounts before level 40, the old spells and talent trees. No Horde paladins, no Alliance shamans. No Blood Elves, no Draeni or later races. Blizzard hasn't said this, but possibly progression servers, meaning that eventually the Burning Crusade would happen, and the other expansions in due time.

So my son was thrilled with the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 . Thanks Mokers and JW (and everyone else) for the advice.

He didn't crap himself, but almost.

Anyways, so is there any sense to getting him a Warcraft account now? Is there still a decent experience leveling up? Kind of annoyed by the get a 100 Level booster pack with Legion, etc.

Leveling up to 90 or so is pretty fast, kinda grindy after that. Current max level is 110. You could let him decide for himself... he can play for free up to level 20.

ddt, I don't know if this question was already answered, but yes, for Mac.

Glad to hear baha! It was a pretty good deal. In a few years when it doesn't play the latest games anymore, you can give him the option of building his own gaming PC.

Moving Myth discussion here from Multi media thread (if, indeed, the discussion hasn't ended already). This method worked for installing Myth 2 for Windows. Man, it's getting harder and harder to do installs of old software now that internal CD-ROMs are a thing of the past. I had an external drive, but it was FireWire 400. Fortunately, 2012 MBP with DVD drive and a thumb drive for transfer worked.

This won't revive gaming on the Mac, but it's an interesting bit of CPR. Vulkan Graphics API-to-Metal, open sourced through Valve.

Apple just didn't care. They don't care about anything and slowly they will fade away. Except for Airpods

Sure you've all seen this.

I remember seeing a Pippen model in a glass box at Comdex (!)

I went to a WWDC session about Pippen. I wish that I could remember more of it; I do remember that Apple hadn't considered and couldn't answer many of the practical questions that the developers came up with. Something about the way that they proposed to do licensing for CD-ROM's...

With a simultaneous Mac and PC release, the new BattleTech looks awesome. They even have the boardgame's original developer on board.

I've been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto IV (finally got to it). Aside from reminding me why I don't want to live in a big city, I'm picking up a lot of useful tips that I can use in real life!

1) Sidewalks aren't JUST for pedestrians
2) Traffic lanes are really just suggestions, and bad ones at that
3) Crimes don't count against you if you just drive fast for a few minutes until the police give up and go home
4) People who will only pay you $1,000 for a murder will often give you a car for free
5) When driving down a stairway into a park at high speed, honk at the pedestrians bouncing off your car. Make it fun for everyone!

I am seriously impressed at how much this game does, and how closely Liberty City mirrors parts of NYC (at least to my non-NY sensibilities). I enjoyed RDR more, though, as it doesn't feel as good playing an unrepentant murderer as a repentant one.
