Woohoo. 24 the movie...of defcon...

Someone has to clean up his HDD and use Fraps to make a 24hour movie of defcon.

Maybe someone will also make a fanmovie remake of wargames, where at the end (or all the time?) see the computer playing defcon and swearing (a shortmovie of course).


Wow you guys had good lan parties. But you should have all sticked to settlers2 splitscreen.

You kids these days. We used to dream about IP packets! When I was your age, we had no "LAN parties"; we had Null-modem-cable parties. We had to carry our stuff uphill both ways, only to be attacked by bears along the way. Once there, we had to solder the cables together.


Reminds me of the Four Yorkshiremen sketch :D

Oh, yes... And in Spain, we have to carry our computers on our donkeys, and make a trip of about two days through the mountains, fighting with the thieves and hermits just to arrive to the city and use the power generators activated with pedals... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

You had donkeys!? Son, when I was a child, we would use the family cat. Now, cats aren't that big, and they tend to scratch. If you think thieves are bad, you should see some of the scars I have from Mittens! As for pedals, those weren't even invented until ought-nine. Before that, we had to crack the generator by hand. We would often lose power in the middle of a match, when the handle fell out of the generator!

Oh and In Israel we just play at home without carrying anything anywhere cause if we do we get bombed (at least if you live in the north)
But we do have to carry some IP packets by hand when the infastructre gets hit (and we also have to run generators by hand when this happens while fending off ravenous beasts and terorists)

It's also 40 dgrees centigrade out here.

In Germany, we are not allowed to own PC's. It's said that we could use them to start a new war. Every time I want to post a reply in the forum, I have to write a letter and send it to France, where they are typed into computers. And if I want to read the answers, I have to send a request for some prints of the page. That's why I need so much time to reply.

I have to send my letters to England.

I've been suspended from school for something I didn't do...
So I'll be free all this week...
