Anyone think these the two most appropriate groups that this idiot could have posted to ... :) Urk .. I guess an ObHack's in order.... ObDumbSchoolGamesHack: Back when I was at High school, we had to use Macintoshes (Some of us felt it was a step down from the old //es, for some reason :) .. Anyway, the best thing about them were a few of the games (Lode Runner in particular). Unfortunately, our teacher would regularly prune them out of our volumes (yeah yeah ... we COULD have kept everything on disk I suppose), so once we found resedit, we'd change the icons of the various executables to the file icon. ObDumberSchoolGamesHack: CS in year 9 was quite often boring, so I used to play Montezuma's revenge, from time to time. The problem was the sound - Apple // sound ain't the quietest thing, nor the least noticeable ... it was a matter of surreptitiously sliding the top of the //e open a little, with a monitor sitting on top of it, hooking my little finger under the sound cord, and pulling the jumper off the prong. I guess that the sound could have been poked out, but I didn't have access to the memory map at the time. ... then came the IIGS, which made quietness rather easy, even if we weren't allowed to fiddle with the control panel. Didn't stop me from making the IIGS throw a Guru Meditation screen. .. Then again the previous post didn't really warrant any more than this <grin> --OH. -- That is the tale the women tell each other, in their private language, that the men children are not taught, and that the old men are too wise to learn. And in that version of the tale perhaps things happened differently. But then, that is a woman's tale and is never taught to men. (Gaiman/ "The Doll's House")
