Amiga

Panic Lives

Panic was the name given to my old Amiga 600, currently sitting in my grandparent’s spare bedroom along with all the other Amiga stuff, but I took a backup of its contents a couple of years ago (It had a 40mb hard drive which contained everything I owned. The computer I’m typing at has 100 gigabytes), and with that, WinUAE (which recently hit 1.0) and Amiga in a box I have brought it back from the dead, and am typing this from within iBrowse.

I felt a whim to play BASE Jumpers, an obscure game by a company called Rasputin, again. It’s not as good as I remember. Ah well, back to HL2

Inferiority

Just in case you feel the need to feel like an inferior programmer, or just want a geeky printout to paper your walls with, ID Software have Open Sourced the Quake III engine under the GPL (Fileshack Download)

(No resource files, obviously, so you can’t compile it and suddenly have Quake 3 Arena, but I’ll interested to see what’s created from this)

Potted

Lonecat bought a copy of Half Blood Prince on the day it was released.

I bought a pile of Sharpe books.

She read it, then read a bit of Phoenix, then read Prince again.

Last night, she loaned me her copy of HBP, and I took it, resolved to only read a few chapters at a time, and promptly devoured a third of it.

I finished it on the bus home this evening, less than 24 hours after I obtained it.

For sale, one resolve, barely used.

Bad days

Distressingly, the Badby youth hostel is going to close. Badby was the site of my very first proper ‘meet weird people off the internet’ thing (Where I met Aquarius, Khendon and various other people for the first time).

Sold it off for housing.

Bastards. And I want one of those houses.
