Well, there’s a blast from the past.

    Good Lord. That is a blast from the past. I can always remember people loading up AfterDark on their old cruddy PC’s and it crashing whenever the screensaver was on for any more than 5 minutes. I was the smug bastard in the corner with my Mac. :-)

        Heh. First PC I had. If it counted as a personal computer. :)

        • Whyever wouldn’t it? My first was the Sinclair, you damn skippy bet I count that. :)

            Well, I did learn how to program BASIC from that, so I guess it launched my future career. :)

          I can honestly say that I have never owned an Intel based computer.

          It’s the reason I am so pissed at Apple now they have gone to the dark side and introduced Intel processors into their laptops. The only saving grace is that it doesn’t run Windows.

          • Oh, I have a Windows machine, but it’s not Intel-based. I only buy AMD chips.

              Nit picking I know, but I prefer RISC over CISC. Always have – scalable architectures are much better.
