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...

I have been back to SimHQ more in the last couple of weeks since knee surgery but only because I am kinda burned out on Arma 3 at the moment and am considering buying a set of rudder pedals for my Warthog that is sitting collecting dust so I can boot up DCS and get some F-14 Tom/Bombcat time. Other than that I have been a nearly 100% Arma gamer for the last few years and have only stepped off of the curb to check SimHQ as a lurker a couple of times a month.
