    Default In case of boredom over winter . . .

    Should you find yourself unjustly attacked by boredom in the near future, you could attack this challenge.
    With a bit of luck you might really put some zest into your local KFC (or other FFJ* of your choice) server' lives as their overlord screens unaccountably go berserk.

    * FFJ = Fast Food Joint, or Face Full of Junk.

    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    There must be a simpler way!
    Global Warming is Mann made.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of any media links I quote.

    That would hardy be worth either the beer or the pizza needed to fuel the effort.

    dammit. Now I want to play Doom again.

    Doom was the game that really taxed my 1st 2 PC's (and Quake, Duke). I played Doom in B&W , I coulnt afford a fancy colour monitor .
    it started the never ending updgrade cycle , my 286 just couldnt cope :-)

    Yea Doom was a fantastic game - the first real fps I played from memory - they were pretty much just "platform" shooters before that.

    John Carmack really took gaming ahead back then

    Dont forget Wolfenstein 3D (before Doom), but was really only 2D
    Catacomb 3-D , and Hovertank before that . Ive never heard of Hovertank , but one of the baddies looks familiar
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hovertank_3D

    With the old 'shareware' software sales model , I wonder how they made any money.
    Especially considering how common software piracy on PC games was back then.

    I was so impressed with Doom, and so relieved to finally break free from the 2D scrolling games that I made a point to buy the full versions from their shareware stuff, even if I had obtained it by other means prior to purchase.

    My hardware could handle the original doom, but I'm now about 2 iterations behind the current release due to my old processor simply not being up to it, and my pockets being too tight to willingly make the upgrade.
