ITT it's 16 years ago, 1998.
I can't wait for legos for christmas
Yeah man. It was rough. Crazy how clear that memory remains today. It was probably some pedo or something but it motivated me to suck less with computers. And now here I am on /g/, so I guess I failed.
I totally would have wanted to bang this girl if I knew what sex was yet, but I didn't learn about sex untill 2000. Really wanted to kiss her though. But I got teased of for hanging around girls and stopped out of peer pressure.
I still think about her. One of the cutest girls I've ever seen. We were 8.
Enjoy you're bloatware. Windows 95 masterrace.
kek. I learned to touch type on my own because I couldn't spam white:wave:dildo:selling 420 unid herbs -rockcock69~~~
fast enough to compete in world 2 Falador.
Runescape sure was one hell of a ride.
Does anyone else remember trying to use that feature on Starcraft 1 where one computer would "call" another, and I'd try to play with my friend as a kid and frantically run around the house telling my family "HEY THE PHONE'S ABOUT TO RING DON'T ANSWER IT" and then playing epic Starcraft battles only to get booted when someone else called the house
I swear these kids today don't know the struggle
Heck yeah! I visit theforce.net for updates every time I use the library internet computer. Man I wish my parents could afford a modern computer and an internet connection. Being poor sucks.
Also, Altavista sucks. Hotbot is what the cool kids use.
Yeah I used that all the time in high school to play this kid named Brian I had met over the summer. I had no idea what I was doing but we'd just fuck around on BGH. That was good shit in the pre-broadband days. Probably why I'm still so curmudgeonly about games lacking a pure LAN matchmaking system these days.
Oh, someone wants to see my VM again?
I'm proceeding to set up Grim Fandango, and see if it werks. That explains the "New Folder".
VMs are easy mode.
I've got Win98 installed on my Athlon XP 2500 with 2 GB ram and a Geforce 6600GT.
I had to limit the ram to 768 while configuring the installation and I still don't have useful 3d acceleration figured out. I'm going to see if it works any better with my 9600Pro.
should check out ResidualVM, an open source clone of the engine grim fandango uses
The problem with my setup is that I'm using straight up Qemu with a bash script for the settings. There's no 3D graphics card, only a shoddy virtio/SPICE implementation, meaning I can't play The Sims, so I'm doubtful GF will work at all. I'm okay with sticking to 2D games though.
I would use VirtualBox, but the Debian fags moved it to contrib, so my only other choice besides Qemu/KVM is Xen.
yea, of course
can't play the game without the game data
you can put them wherever you like though
just consists of the .lab files off the cd's, plus the official patch .exe
Yeah, it just installed ResidualVM inside my Windows 2000 VM. Kinda pointless since I can't see anything because Direct3D, OpenGL or any 3D doesn't work. I'll try the generic 64-bit Linux build. Thanks again.
Enjoy downloading this GIF for an hour dial-up poorfags. Uploaded from my DSL connection in just a couple minutes.

man i installed so much spyware that weekend but that shit was worth it
>Those Mac Pro users jumping ship in June 2014 when they saw the new trashcan computer.
Lol. Look on the bright side, you're only 6 times worse than the Mac market share. And Linux dominates the mobile market.
Need to search for something?
Need to search for leet hax?
What didn't exist?

There won't be a year of the Linux desktop, at least not as envisioned.
There won't be either a single catastrophic fuck up by Microsoft/Apple/Whomever that will cause a mass exodus to Linux, nor will there be a single release of a distribution that changes everything.
The year of the Linux desktop will be, God willing, a period of several years in which Linux gets many new users.
I won't forget the 56k connection noise till the day I die. I will also force my kids to memorize it.
As I am lowered into the ground in my coffin the noise will be played, signifying my connection to heaven.
