Howdy y'all

Postby Me300 » Fri Jun 15, 2007 4:40 am

Guess the uplink forums are good as dead thesedays, so I figure I'll say hi in here.
How y'all been doing (anyone that remembers me and doesn't frequent the uplink forums anymore)?
Things are going pretty well for me thesedays, although they can always stand to be better.
And I got promoted today, so that was cool. In any case, hope to hear from some of y'all.

Welcome back.
Does your cardboard box have an APO return address? Are you in Korea? We've been talking behind your back.
Uplink has moved along to v1.55 and the interface is smoother now, thanks to frenchfrog (and others).
I still don't know what Nakatomi was all about, but then, I'm such a laggard.

Sadly it doesn't. And I don't get to go to Korea until next April unfortunately, and I'm glad to hear you're talking behind my back. And I haven't played Uplink in forever.

Sadly? Then just shoot it. It's only cardboard.

Sylph-DS You should be ashamed! During working hours!

Me300, what rank are you up to now?
F.Y.I. I did a whole year of guard duty for Uncle Sam (during the ain't released me yet '71-'72).
Yeah, Nixon's 'Withdrawal With Honor', and homecoming stunk too. But Korea in April? Sounds nice.

Anyway, you gotta get into Defcon. Even if only as single player against CPU AI.
Best new game of chess ever invented. My opinion.

As to Uplink, here's a challenge:
Try and beat this gametime getting into the GCD. My photo-paste is the only bogus part of the screenshot.

I've been doing lots of Uplink, still. I must be crazy.

Nakatomi was the patch which introduced LANs - the name is a joke referring to Die Hard, since it was for 'die hard fans'.

Oh.
Well, if I can't be a laggard, I already know I'm a 'never say die (hard) UpLINK fan'.
The Uplink forum (dark forum) has aquired a structure that is an artifact of it's long term development history.
Hmmm. Kinda like a very-slow-motion Subversion in 2D. Wouldn't you say?

Iunno, I still think the Uplink forums have a sort of charm to them. But then again, what do I know, as so many Californians point out (took a page out of the book of John Kerry himself), I'm just an American soldier, which qualifies me as one of the world's biggest dumbasses.
