    Been playing an old old game recently called :World of Xeen" And also playing "Heroes of Might and magic 3" Both are dos based and close to 25 years old. The first mentioned is an rpg the second a strategy game. Both run fine under win 10 with Dosbox. There is another website if you like real old games. It is called Abandonia. It has games from a long time ago and all are free. It's Abandonia.com if you want to go see for yourself if they have any old favorites. I do believe they also include dosbox routines with the games downloaded.

    Wow, used to play HoMM3 for almost 10 years. What a great game, always on custom maps, always at impossible level. There's expansion called " Wake of gods" also very good.
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    Here's the "Evil Overlord checklist". There are links to a variety of short stories about changing a light bulb in Star Trek there as well.
    Also,why hydrogen powered engines can be dodgy.
    And finally, they call it a jetpack race while it is really just a couple of guys flying around using jetpacks.
    I'd like my flying car now.
    As always, open the links at your own peril.
    Third shift is fine for me, but I doubt it would work even a little bit for working on copiers. I should be on my merry way, I guess.

    English can be weird. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.
