I like the fact that I've managed to sit here in front of the computer with all my work shit open for the past 2 hours convincing myself that NO REALLY, as soon as I read the end of this page/had a smoke/played with the dog/listened to some radio/looked up these lyrics/tried to find an affordable sub-woofer/got some more water/spaced off/gone to the bathroom that I'd get right back to working on what I'd been working on.


We don't seem to have Heretic. We have Heretic II, and Hexen II but it's probably going to take rifling through shit in the basement to find the burns I made of my hard drive before I moved up here to unearth the original flat blinky golems. Besides... who knows if it will run on XP. It's one of those "exit to DOS" games.

Karl bought Quake 4 the other day which came with all this bonus stuff INCLUDING QUAKE 2. So he fired that up last night and it was INSANE the way I remembered that damned game. I used to dream Quake 2.

I should just see if the plug I bought for the TV actually works and test out more of those atari games. Awhile back we bought the original Atari 2600 in its original box and the seller through in about 80 games. Including Tempest and Yars Revenge and Berzerk. I don't think the Strawberry Shortcake Game or E.T. are in there though and that really would have made my night. That also means sitting in the much colder basement in a dining room chair in front of the tv becuase that bastard is heavy and the Atari doesn't play nice with our big TV upstairs.

The new Depeche Mode album (Playing the Angel) is brilliant and wonderful and really really *strong* for them. But not away from type. It's a nice progression from Ultra and Violator. Heh, not that any of you beyond Karl give a damn about Depeche Mode.

Lately we have watched Logan's Run (I'd never seen it), The Entity (Karl had never seen it), Butterfly Sword, The Tai Chi Master, and I'm sure a few other things that I am currently forgetting. Oh, last night we saw Batman Begins. How can *anyone* prefer the Joel Schumacher bullshit? REALLY. Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrible. Batman = definitely favorite "super hero" kinda guy.

Most DOS games can be run with DOSbox, VDMsound, a few other bits and pieces, and some fiddling.

May be useful - warning, the first two use pop up ads (harmless ones, but annoying).

Quake 2 was quite horribly addictive. That bit where you're running along the river bank and most of the enemies are the really weedy ones, yet you have all the immensely powerful guns... I must have done that bit a hundred times.

Quakey 2 was the best.
