    I dont think you grow out of Iron Maiden.... You might lose some hearing though.


    You might if you heard their latest album... :(

    But they were great in their day.That's true of most bands. Rush isn't what they used to be. BTW Rush is my absolute favorite band of all time. Got ~ 17 of their CD's. Neil Peart is the definition of
    "drummer". :wink:
  2. +1 to that.


    Im glad that people who really love their music are still supporting them and buying their albums. Its unfortuant that most of the money never reaches them though.

    Wouldnt it be nice if each band had a website where you could buy their albums directly, where they get their money that they earned.

    In Canada, a small amount of all blank CD/Cassette sales goes to the musicians...that's why Canada's copyright laws are more lax WRT downloading music. This is about to change in the near future, though.
  4. Wow blank cassettes... havent seen those in a while.
    And that is the same way here with any blank media labled Music.

    Such as Music CD-Rs...
  5. There are a lot of older guys in here who like older games, but when im playing online, i can never find anyone to play freespace, starlancer, freelancer, or red faction, What gives?


    btw, I never posted my spec, i have a socket am2 based x2-4200 with 2gb memory, asus m2ne 570m ultra motherboard, bfg 7600gt video card, 2x 250 gb hard drives, 2x dvd burners, in a thermaltake soprano xcase with blue led lights and a 600 watt psu. I also have a core duo laptop from dell, and a xp-m 2800 socket a system with 1gb memory, 6600 video card, 60gb hard drive in a raidmax scorpio case.
  6. you kidding me? I play freespace 1 and 2... best games that never were popular.... damn them for not making a 3rd.

    And I played Red Faction for years. I just reinstalled it after upgrading to a cd2 and 8800, and the game doesn't run.

    Whats your user name in RF? I might join you once I get it working.

    I saw "I-D one zero T." But I think that might give it away easier then by going with the "one D" way.

    Wait a minute, that would make you a protohuman. 8O

    That explains everything.

    So, did brontosaurus-burgers really taste like beef, or was my leg just being pulled?
  21. Kinda. It has a game-ish taste to it though.
  22. Someone has been playing too much Torok (sp) evolution.

    Nah, cassettes were those things that people would toss out the windows of their cars and this little ribbon would go blowing in the wind.
  33. I'm a 20 year old Sophomore English major at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. I am single, enjoy various nerdy pursuits, running and working out, movies, writing, reading and lots of the usual college guy stuff (i.e., booze and women). I am currently working on my first novel, which I hope to have mostly framed out by the end of Christmas break (Jan. 22nd).

    The key to 8-tracks was knowing how to sequence perfectly to just hear your favorites. Listen to 27 seconds of a dud, then upshift twice and BINGO, up pops your hot track. Totally lost on the mp3 gen.
  40. It is pretty confusing, you have to like move your mouse three meters left and up two rows and double, yeah double, click and then it plays a great song every time!

Totally lost on the mp3 gen.The worst part was when the track changed...midway through your favourite song. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! :o And my dad rented an 8-track recorder....taped from a bunch of LP's, and basically D.J'ed my sisters wedding(1979)...on 8-track. I'm embarassing myself beyond belief. :x
  42. Back before there were cassettes, if you wanted to tape something, it was open reel. My first one used 3" reels and I taped music from a radio with the built in microphone. And the radio was a TRANSITOR one. That was really big stuff when they came out. It meant portability and that meant escaping from the "norm". AM only of course.

    Computers? What was those? :) Some huge thing the size of a room that you feed paper cards into with lots of little punch holes in them. And they had these monster sized tape reels that couldn't make up their mind which direction they were going in. I knew someone in college who used to go to wherever they had their computer. He was smart, stunk, and had a hard time related to people. Kind of a proto or cro-geek if you know what I mean.
  43. In 1984. I was in college and made my 2 biggest digital leaps. I tossed out the turntable and bought a CD player ($400.00 for the most bottom line player). If you went into a record store, you saw.... records. There was one little stand with like maybe 15 CD titles. Prince's Purple Rain sounded awesome on the new technology.

    The other major purchase I made was a new computer. I had the old TI99 home computer before, but (even then) it seemed like a toy. I picked myself up a brand spanking new Zenith Z-248 with Dual Floppy 5.25 inch drives. I got pretty good at swithcing out floppys every 5 seconds to compile Fortran programs.

    Somehow - 22 years doesn't seem like that long ago to me.
