i know a dude who uses one of those logitech mice with twelve buttons on the side. he had a massive stroke like ten years ago that left one of his arms basically unusable (the stroke crippled him so severely that his student debt was forgiven) so that mouse basically lets him play MMOs one-handed.


that said, yeah granted the vast majority of people don't need a little mini-keyboard on their mouse. but i'm glad they exist for those that do. :unsmith:

I'm glad he can still find a way to chill and enjoy stuff with friends despite that :unsmith:

This is actually an extremely cool idea and it's disappointing that it didn't continue, but I guess the proliferation concern of murdering old people for their sweet radioactive parts makes sense, along with the whole incineration thing.

the idea that i could get a 100% unironic tattoo over my heart with the THIS IS NOT A PLACE OF HONOR screed because i'm nuclear regulated is pretty cool tho

I can't help you whatsoever but I have a game memory that's similarly driven me crazy for decades.
A friend of mine got a computer - an Acer I think? - with a bunch of shareware CDs. One of them was a semi-edutainment thing with a bunch of puzzles about conveyor belts at an airport or something, and you had to line all the belts up in the right directions to get all of the luggage sorted into the right place. I've spent a ton of time trying to find it to no avail. I think it's the only game from that period that I've had zero luck finding even the vaguest mention of its existence.

Shareware CDs, man.

Mothafuckin LET'S EXPLORE THE AIRPORT WITH BUZZY which we also got with our ugly rear end green acer (with built in drive for magnetic tape backups). also came with FURY3 and we grabbed mechwarrior 2 as well from the store that day :hellyeah:

a pizza shop owner I know dabbed the cheese on his pizza before eating it so this is good advice

his advice was the better the cheese, the less the oil which tracked with my experience with pooling money with my roommates for cheap college pizza deals

:hai: cheap cheese and cheap pepperoni are the two common greasemakers

How does this work with the phone companies ripping out copper lines?

Thread content: the last time I was apartment hunting, I faxed in rental applications using my old USR 56k external connected through a Vonage connection. It took 45 minutes or so per page :allears:.

can’t imagine being at the same apartment for a quarter century, how much has the rent changed over the years?
