I just saw that you still can download the games from the Internet Archive. Excellent solution, Zxy (or whoever came up with it). Would have been sad if they would've been lost (some of them are hared to find nowadays).

Thanks, I'm confident they're well prepared to take care of the games. Swizzle, the guy who maintains the PC games collection, was super cool and really happy to host the games.

I would've never accepted a solution where the games would have been lost to the time.

Cool!

And they even accepted tha adult games like "Buffy", "Hentai Highschool" and "Queen of Fighters". Not many sites would have done that.

1 AM here. Yesterday (The 14th) was Skoda's birthday, and my sister's birthday too. And Valentine's Day. And my sister's boyfriend of seven years proposed to her. So needless to say, it was a very big day. It was very windy and cold out, so we didn't do a whole lot for the day. We all went over to the hobby shop for part of the day. I've been setting up a train layout for the model railroad club that's starting there. Bob, who owns the shop, has been a good friend to both me and Maria, and has been very helpful over the years to us. While it is always tempting to buy every train car and locomotive in the shop (And we could do that!), he's refused monetary assistance from us. His shop's been around since 1978, and while hobby shops all around the country are closing up, his seems to keep going. So, since he won't accept money from us, he will accept our help in advertising his shop locally, and help in the form of time spent on restarting the railroad club that had been dormant for a number of years. In other words, we get to play with trains all day, every day!

Old trains never die. They just sit in ruin and wait until the day they are taken in by a skilled craftsman and rebuilt to their former glory.

If that was only hobby shops. Groceries, butcher shops, bookstores, newsstands... There are still cobblers and clockmakers, to be found mostly in poorer districts and neglected tenements, but I give them one decade at most. There's even one hatter near the dental office I frequent, but I don't really know without googling what hatters do. Straighten crushed hats?

On the other hand we receive a flood of small businesses started by young people who work in broadly understood design and recycling branches. For example my friend refurbishes old furniture. I don't know where she buys them (but after all Cracow is full of old attics and basements), but she seems to be doing well and some of the pieces are priced really high (700 zł = 200 USD = 180 EUR). Hipsterish clubs have a lot of furniture made from pallets. Groceries and small shops in general may be closing up, but slow food culture becomes extremely popular too - here there's at least one event each week devoted to promotion of cheeses, juices, baked goods and beers from small manufacturers. Things only change form.

Just jumped in to say hi... I hope everything is going quietly around here because people stop by and then go about their business. I have been WAYYY too busy to get anything proper done recently out side of home and work, so every online activity beyond work is suffering. Even my consultant business...

Seems like as good a time as any to pop in for a hello.
So..."hello"

I'm with Curly, everything has been crazy busy for the last year or so...been insane with work, working on the house, and other garbage that sucks up most of my days. Hopefully I can find some time again soon, but unlike the sun shining on Curly, statistically speaking, the sun barely ever shines in the city I'm living in...which is good for vampires I guess... :lol:

Hope everyone is doing fine.

Sometimes this idea of mass-emailing everyone to tell them to come here and say hi comes to my mind but it hasn't gone further than that.

Maybe one day.

Might be a good idea for CWF's tenth birthday next year. :)

Hi all, just thought I'd drop in to say that I'm alive and stuff. :)

The other day, I got back from a trip to Europe, where I was travelling with my barbershop music chorus where we were invited to perform in England, Germany, and Sweden. I always enjoy visiting Europe and I had an awesome time. :)

In other news, I've taken all the necessary refresher courses to get back into massage therapy, so hopefully, I'll be able to get back into doing that and can get away from working at Wal-Mart. :)

How's everyone else doing?

I've been hanging between groundbreaking and obvious for some time.

Apart from this there happened to happen some physical changes which are of no interest to spacetime pulp, whatsoever.

I thought you were just teasing :wink:

I've also just spotted that it is RyM's birthday today, so while he hasn't been here for a while I'm still going to say:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Have a strange spinning cake.

Seriously thought, I lurk on occasion and just decided I should really start being social again :Bearhug:
