F117A was a relatively 'brisk' start-up, at least on a 1991 386/387.

My daughter cannot comprehend waiting 15 minutes for a game to load off of cassette tape (with the still evocative warbling, of the loading process)... or a screen made of 40x30 8*8 cells in 16 colours (hackable to 16 on each 'row' of cells). Ah. The 'Joys' of the original rubber keyboard ZX48.

That said she does play games - while my ex can't see why anyone would want to... but then watches wall-wall 'true crime' and 'reality' TV shows and reads crappy novels.

Never in a million years did I think the day would come when my posting activity on Facebook would exceed my posting activity on SimHQ but that happened about one year ago.

Seems like your ex doesn't comprehend the concept that personal preferences in entertainment are highly subjective.

SimHQ needs to being back the cool swag so that I can replace the cap I lost in NYC. Also, I want a black v-collared shirt like the one my wife picked out...
