    i just asked if he jumped ship with MHC or if it was personal stuff, and he said both.

    went a little into the personal stuff which i won't repeat, he didn't say much about the other.

    That really is too bad.
    I don't even know what to say.


    I did NOT have a good day, getting no sleep and all. I managed to get 25% on a math quiz, and I so out of it...still am.



    Should I take a nap for an hour or two now, or should I just try to go to bed early tonight?

    Much as I hate to admit it, this is a true story.

    Even worse, I have also booted Data General computers by toggling in a boot loader on front panel switches. Said boot loader, once running, would then read in a paper tape second stage loader. THEN you could boot the hard disk, which was physically enormous, but only about 500 KB.

    OK, let the parade of computing senior citizens begin - who can "beat" those two stories?

    I'm wondering what I will make of my life.
    My gut pulls me down one path, my head goes another, but logic goes the opposite direction...

    Agreed! They were actually "floppy" vs. the rigid plastic case of the 3.5 "floppies".

    The first 5 1/4 floppies I used held a whopping great 256KB. We loved 'em though. Two drives per machine. One held the entire OS on a single 256KB disk, the other held your working files. Ah, those were the days...

    Amazing how they could fit an entire OS on such a small disk (memory wise )
    Granted it wasnt nearly as graphical.

    Those disks cracked me up then and still do when I see them from time to time

    Guitar Hero
    Over this past weekend, my kids introduced me to Guitar Hero III, Legends of Rock. What a GREAT game!! I had a real hoot playing it, even if I could never really progress off the "Easy" setting. Great music, a truly inventive controller and just a really fun concept. What a GREAT game!

    ...and I understand that there is a version for Macs now. I have to hunt that up...

    That game is a blast. I thought it was over rated until I played it. I'm addicted to the point where I dont want it for my 360. Ill never get off. Medium is as high as I can go.

    On a side note my car just arrived in Hawaii today
    (after 3 weeks). Hooray!
