Had this sales person at "bad buy" tell me about this new "tower" computer called...... a HP I think. It looked funny! You cant even put your monitor on top of it!! I told him thank you very much but I will stick with my Tandy 1000 with 14.4 modem. Darn kid I dont get what I said that made the whole store think It funny. I got into my Pinto and headed back to radio shack. Bought me a 28.8 modem Seems faster know. Radio Shacks the best! They dont laugh at me!
The reason I asked about the floppys was because my Dos crashed trying to load Windows 3.0 I started downloading the game at launch. 2 days ago I finally got it downloaded. 14.4 modems with Prodgy dial up is so slow! Thats why I wanted to upgrade to the 28.8 modem. When the game was runing it took me 7 hours to get from the transporter room to the club. I hope once I re install the game I plan to set off for vulcan. I think it should take no more than a year to get there.
I miss my Tandy now and playing the old Robocop sidescrolling game on it. The game came with 7 floppies. How times have changed!
Oh yes... I still remember installing Windows 3.11 and Office (dont remember the ver), from Floppies... The peace and quiet of just sitting at your pc, listening to the drive going BZZ-BZZ-BZZ
"Please insert the floppy labed 'Microsoft Windows 3.11 DIsk 24 of 52' into your floppy drive and press resume". (not sure about the number... but i have the entire set of floppies around here somewhere.
