Some people look better when they are young, some people look better when they are old. Quite a few popular TV?movie stars (women and men) look better older then they did when they were teens. Some of the hottest girls in my highschool class look very bad now in their 30's, they peaked way too soon....

Celebrities are mostly people who have to be in the spotlight to feel loved, has nothing to do with the money. Britney went out of her way to get back into the spotlight recently, no panties and not trying to cover up etc. I don't feel sorry for her at all, she wanted this mess and now she has it, e...

I don't see the US wanting Canada or Mexico, the canadians have too many personal rights they don't want to loose (national healthcare) and the Mexicans are convenient to exploit economically.

Anybody interested in a VLB TV/Video capture card?

Recently I snagged 3 Miro Video 20 TD VLB cards, they have the Tseng ET4000W chipset with 2MB of RAM (max), TV tuner, and Svideo+Composite video in ports for video capture. I have one set of manuals and software (Win 3.1 or Win 95), but can copy the disks. One spare is enough for me, so if somebody ...

Its funny, but I have a few 486 machines but none are dedicated to DOS Games. A tandy 1000 or PC Jr is best for older CGA type games, nothing newer outside of emulation can touch it because of hardware quirks. A 386/40 with a turbo button is best for early VGA type games A Pentium 200/233MMX is perf...

If you can find the game files on the net (should be able to easy enough) there are programs that convert the digital file to a WAV file (link posted below). Once you get the WAV file you can burn multiple games to a CD as audio tracks, then get cd player to pump the audio out to your spectrum tape ...

There is no single perfect DOS machine, but a simple Pentium 166-233 with a soundblaster 16, 2GB HD, CDROM, and 16MB RAM should be enough for most people.

I you look for my old posts you will see what gaming rigs I put together (and still have).

Can't think of a single dream DOS machine since one can't do it all. I would probably keep what I have and add a ROLAND MIDI box to my 386/40 and probably a flight stick and pedals to my Pentium 200.

[quote="franpa]gf4mx is direct x 9 compatable... it just lacks pixel shaders and hardware TnL.[/quote]

You do understand that hardware T&L goes back to the original Geforce 1 card, and if you think any games that need it can run well with dx9.0 compatability using software and the CPU you are nuts.

486 machines are not as common as they used to be since most have been recycled (atleast here in the US).

Original DOS Games in the Box or just the disks?

Do you collect DOS games in their original boxes or just the disks and manuals?

I regret years ago tossing the boxes for most of my old DOS games, anything I collect now stays in the box.

What about you guys?
