Man, I wish I knew where that computer went to. It would be cool to check it out some time for nostalgia.

Ok>_
I have two of them (I think both are still there) at my folks' house. Our first computer was a 16K CoCo2, we upgraded to the CoCo3 (with 128K) a couple years later. Still have a boatload of tapes with my programs on them (helluva way to teach an eight year old, or however old I was at the time, how to do logical reasoning - write a damn progam in BASIC!).

My moms keeps bugging me to get them out of the house, but every time I say something to my wife about hooking them up, she just rolls her eyes at me.

I'll have to grab them next time I'm up there....

Every now and then I play Halo 2 online (screen name is cunnilicious) but I rarely have time. I bought Civilization, played it a few times and shelfed it. I just don't have time for video games anymore. Drat!

PS: That machine is still alive today in perfect working order. My grandpa uses it to play solitaire.
I played LSL on an original Mac in 1985 or so. That was my second computer. The first was an early model TRS-80, around 1978. Still have both machines, in pristine condition. Although I do have trouble reading programs from those damn cassette tapes...

I'll admit to playing World of Warcraft. I'm not a huge gamer, but I fire it up once in a while. I also have a XBox 360. I mainly use it to stream music and watch dvds. I didnt own a game for it for 5 months. I just downloaded demo's from XBox Live when I felt the urge.. I'm a cheap bastard =)

I was heavily into SWG after beta testing it. Rode that pony into the ground about the time my daughter was born.

I also beta tested Dungeons and Dragons online, but found that, once again, I had no time due to said daughter's birth.


Now I just log into forums and engage in the occasional stimulating conversation in between working and fixing my house.


I love MMORPS's, they really are evil.
