  1. #1
    I was forced (forced ah say) to clean the mancave over da weekend. It took 2 whole days to get er done but I dood it!!! Amazing what you find when you clean:

    1. Manual for "Aces Over Europe"
    2. Manual for "Aces Over The Pacific"
    3. Box and floppys for "Tie Fighter"
    4. Box and floppys for "X-Wing"
    5. Disk and manual for "Fighting Steel"
    6. Dish and manual for "Ground Control"
    7. Disk "Euopean Air War"
    8. Disk and Manual "Waterloo"
    9. Disk and manua; for "Steel Beasts"
    10. Disk and manual for "Wing Commander - Prophecey".

    Wonder what happened to the rest of my Wing Commander and Red Alert swag?

    Anyone one desperate for any of this stuff lemme know.

    Wing Commander was awesome.

    I particularly liked Privateer.

    Very handy for those of us with teenagers who constantly change their passwords and then forget them. Taught him how to make the 'just in case disk' waaay back when, and it still works.

    I had to buy one a year ago. I had some old stuff that I hadn't backed up (exams etc.) and this was the only way to access it without going to a specialist.

    External drives are quite cheap actually.

    I have rescue disks on USB thumbdrive, lol. In fact I installed Win7 from a USB drive, I don't think I've used my DVD drive in almost a year, lol. As for the slot still being there, they are being phased out right now, plenty of mobo's still have them, but increasingly they are being released without them.


    Oh, and in case no one can tell, my initial post about still using floppies was a joke, I have nothing against floppies, in fact, check this out:
