Actually, it should be "her mother".

Have fun with THAT one.

Finding New and Unintended Ways of Playing Games

choovanski Dumb AND obsessively repetitive... (346 comments)

When I was introduced to (pre-WOW) Warcraft I would annihilate a level by _almost_ completing it. For example, if a requirement was that I needed three buildings to clear the level I'd only build two. Then I'd put the peons to work chopping down every tree, emptying every mine, sucking up every last bit of oil... Once there was nothing more that could be done to rape the landscape THEN I'd move on to the next level. Don't ask me why, it wasn't exactly fun sitting there waiting for them to finish. I just had the urge to take it ALL... I think I was meant to be an upper level executive instead of an admin. :P

I ordered the free security update cd the Microsoft has out.

I do a clean Win98SE install on a friend's computer.

Onboard video won't go above 640x480 without the driver.

I don't have the driver.

I try to install the critical updates before I go online for the first time.

Disc doesn't work under 800x600. ^-^

(Yes, the update files you need are on the disc but how is Jo Sixpack supposed to figure out which ones to use?!?)
