So, your computers never failed without UPSes connected? Which UPSes did you use?
Do UPSes change much over those years? I had old ones with lights, and the newer were better since they can show digital readings unlike my old beige ones. I wonder what in a few years will have better.
Bender. is that you?
And then it gets too hot and bright to handle.
Doesn't look at all like a Dalek to me, it looks more like something that Aperture Science would design. (And it would say "No hard feelings" if you pushed it over, assuming you could push over this lumbering 300lb thing)
The original game is fun to play. Last month at Retromañía in Spain we had the original game running on the Russian pdp-11 clone for which it was created (unfortunately the pdp-11 clone had to be emulated - we actually have a real pdp-11 but it's a DEC built one and the original code won't work very well on it due to the lack of the Cyrillic character set). It's a good bit harder than the PC version which I think was the next version of Tetris to be written.
For me, we do it on the holiday and on CATurdays.
Except snipers usually want to be stealthy, this machine makes an incredible racket.
For me, I pretty much quit video gaming. I think I got old, too BUSY, and burned out (no time and energy). I have been gaming since I was a callow ant since the late (19)70s start out with Atari 2600 and arcades. I noticed my gaming started fading after WoW came out. Once in a while, I'd play quick games like in Flash online.
Last time I bought a vehicle (a motorcycle) I actually bought it with my debit card! The bank called back to make some security checks, but other than that, buying a motorcycle was just like buying the groceries - insert card, enter PIN, ride home on new bike.
You should expect a basic, clean, functional room though with what was advertised to come with the room.
I've stayed in a £35 a night Blackpool B&B (Windsor House or something it was called) and it was perfectly acceptable. The room wasn't huge but it was clean and comfortable, the shower worked fine, it had free WiFi, and a full English breakfast included and was much better value than most so-called "low cost" hotels like Premier Inn. I stayed recently in a 25 euro a night hotel in the centre of Zaragoza in Spain and this was similar - no way could you describe it as "luxury" but it was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower worked just fine and so did the WiFi. It is perfectly possible to have an entirely acceptable hotel room for this price.
Yeah, I hate the flat GUI too. It seems like us, old computer geek/nerd farts hate it?
Nice. You still get paid to sleep at work. I wish I could do that!
Wow, how long have you been doing this? Is it worth it? I used to work long hours and even worked about a month nonstop (no days off). It wasn't worth it. Ugh.
