Yeah, well...I started in '88 with the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Book Club then, as I started work in 1990, I usually bought them as they came out (hence the mostly first editions + The Colour of Magic/Light Fantastic/Equal Rites and Mort are all much later special edition hardback reprints) and then, once married, it's been a tradition for the last few years to get one from the Mother-in-law for either Birthday or Christmas... biggrin.gif ...Sorted!!...

Although...That's not to say I've read them all...

If so- I have one. What ever happened to Eric Lindros?

I remember on draft night they said he would be the greatest ever. I am still waiting for the Stanley Cup...

I think now it would be quite appropriate to angry up mALX. After all, her turning green will suit well with this American festivity! laugh.gif


On another note, I bought my current puter in ī09 and have now played over 6000 rounds of chess on it tongue.gif

laugh.gif I used to have chess on my computer, but Microsoft quit packaging it, lol.

If you are looking for a good chess program Arena 3.5 GUI and Stockfish 6 running on it is the way to go. Both are free downloads and quite capable of destroying the current World Champion, Magnus Carlsen.

Although losing every game on it is no longer fun. So perhaps Microsoft chess is better after all. tongue.gif

You canīt change the difficulty?
Winter Wolf
Yes you can. Arena is a GUI and you can install heaps of different programs that can play at all different levels. And yes, Stockfish itself can be scaled down to play at a lower level as well. I guess it sort of defeats the purpose of having such an awesome set up and not using it.

These days I mostly use Stockfish for game analysis of World Championship games. Although going through the last 150 years of chess does take time. biggrin.gif

Hey, Summer Fox! Got any NES games laying around that you wanna send to me? biggrin.gif

Yes, you can actually beat Microsoft chess occasionally, but it shuts the computer down before you can gloat.

I am looking for the original Chips Challenge (not the remake of it, I don't like the remake). I have kept a VERY old computer around just so I could keep playing Chips.

I have the original FLOPPY disc with Chips Challenge, chess, some tomb raiding game, Tetras, - plus about 20 more Microsoft bundled games on it (!) - but computers don't have slots for floppy discs anymore.

That old computer has a DOS partition with Arena and Daggerfall; and on the other side of the partition is games like: Echo the Dolphin, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. But it is OLD, with one of those enormous monitors that weighs hundreds of pounds. Back when computers didn't have USB connectors or firewires, lol.

Last year I copied Chipīs Challenge to a newer computer as a backup. But I still prefer to play it on the oldest puter smile.gif

I used to have a demo of the original Doom too but seem to have lost it somehow.

Tonight my dad and I went to a Subaru dealer to stuff our faces with the free food, drink and coffee see the new Outback, plus some other cars hehe.gif

I liked the potato salad, pasta salad, regular salad and the garlic bread Outback, Forester and a double cab Izusu. Overall it was a fun evening smile.gif

Urgh, the UK is currently swamped by clouds of toxic smog.

We had a solar eclipse today. Couldn't see any of it, the damn clouds are so thick. sad.gif

yeah I woke up early to see it but I just got 'overcast city landscape' instead. indifferent.gif

Thankfully the internet is a thing so I can see other people's pictures of it. Looked pretty cool!

cool.gif ..I saw it... biggrin.gif ...

We had to get stuff done in work, but around the time of what was going to be the mostest bit of it, I managed to sneak away and stare at the sun (*Warning, danger Will Robinson!) while it did it's most awesome of coincidental things...Then, unfortunately, I had to actually go back and do a bit of work...*Sigh*...Ah, matters cosmic and mundane in perfect wossnames...

But yes, clouds of Parisian smog is currently giving it large across the UK...Awesome...Not...

Callidus Thorn
You mean I missed the eclipse because of French smog? ohmy.gif

That adds a whole new level of suckiness. sad.gif
