Of course, oregon trail, that semi truck driving one, reading with roger rabbit(dos/95/q basic?), carmen san diego, the 7th house on the left, delta force, a bunch of classic pc games. Granted the last three were on cd.


I use linux now but was brought up on every windows os since the big floppies. We constantly had the second newest os as each time the school up graded we got the best old computer available, usually the one my mother had at her desk and was untouched by students. I remember the first desktop we actually bought was an hp that could burn cds, it ran xp sp2 I think. By that time she had left teaching.


I have her electronics TOOLS from when she went to college for a computer science degree, back when you could still fix a pc with a SIMPLE soldering iron.


If you havent changed out capacitors or other individual components on a motherboard you've never really fixed a computer, only bought new to replace what you couldnt fix.

I must have used the dos one from 1991. That pic is what I used to see.


Actually, may have been the windows 3 version.

We started off with a Vic 20 then we got an Amiga.

Good times. My father somehow got all the thousands of Amiga game copied, why or how I don't know but seriously we had several hundreds of games if not over a thousand and had to copy over those we didn't like.

I loved Roadwar 2000, Shadowgate, Deja Vue, Deuteros(Never got far), Final phantasie III with Nikademus as the ultimate vilain(Awesome RPG!!), then Dungeons and Dragons etc.

Another favorite was BattleTech the Crescent Hawk's Revenge, I had figured out so many hidden things like guns you normally couldn't get or even got to steal a mech which in the game is supposed to be destroyed.
