Default Hello, Abandonia!

By way of introduction:

Well, I finally decided to register for the forums here. I say "finally", because I've known of (and used) this site for quite some time, and after availing myself of the games and information here, I thought I'd register to try to help out in here with my memories of games, how to play them and any tips and tricks about them I can remember. I also write freelance, and can make myself available for proofreading reviews and smoothing out "hiccups" in the diction/usage in the reviews of non-English speakers.

I also have a fair amount of games, all on their original format on my shelves or packed away. I never got into selling or trading games for newer stuff, mostly because every game I bought, I loved dearly. So much so, that I've cobbled together an old PII system under Win 98 that's strictly for playing some of these old gems.

I've always been a flight sim freak, and I've always strived to have a joystick and throttle setup on my systems, starting way back when I had the old Thrustmaster F-16 system (I now run a Saitek X45 stick and throttle, which works with a surprising number of DOSBox driven games). Naturally, I have all the MS Combat Flight Simulator series (I got 3 for $7 because some clerk mispriced it :-D), Red Hot - Apache vs. Havoc (the BEST combat helicopter gacme ever), B-17 - The Mighty 8th, TIE Fighter (both 3.5 and Collector's), X-Wing Collector's Edition, Su-27 Flanker, Commanche vs. Werewolf... the list goes on.

RTS is a secondary fun zone for me... Someone on here mentioned Metal Fatigue, for example... I also wasted days, if not months, playing M.A.X., and does anyone here remember Star Trek: New Worlds? I wonder if that one is Abandonware yet... I have a nice original CD here.

Anyway, enough of this tomfoolery, it's nice to be here. If some of you have questions regarding some old titles, shake my memory and I may be able to help you out. I'm older than most and younger than some, so I might have what you need clunking around my old brain.

Come on, anyone with some kind of telepathic abilities is by law required to bend at least five spoons per day.

I haven't seen that law. Is that under that Schedule E I keep hearing about (Section 124.i.c, by any chance)?

The specifics of that law are told only to people with telepathic or likewise abilities. But, as a sign of trust, I can confirm that the law is indeed Schedule E, Section 124.i.c.
