Hmmmz... Like the title says... I'm tired... Haven't had a decent night of sleep since... well, i can't even remember that...

Anyone has the same problem?
Maybe it's an Uplink virus...
I think Chris has molded it in the game, to make sure, you keep playing Uplink, even when your body says you've got to sleep!!!

I know just what you mean. I haven't played a game this much (26-27 hour marathons) since Deuteros came out for the Amiga 500. :cool:
I'm starting to understand all the references to caffeine now :o , just wish I had the energy to make a pot of coffee.....:biggrin:

To be honest... I don't like coffee at all, mores the shame in a way. The smell and taste of the stuff makes me queesy :( Although that never stopped me putting the dedication page up on THS :D

Although I drink way too much Coca Cola... So I guess that is Caffeine enough ;)

Has anyone played Access Denied on the good ol' Miggy? Short game but one of the first hacker simulators.

Mmm Sleep I remember that,
Uplink has me at the point where I have fallen a sleep at the PC.
Uplink is responsible for several of my medical problems such as:
Penguin love,
Sleep Typing,
and Insanity.

God I love this game.

If you are sleeping good, then you need to play the game more and more and more until you fall asleep at the keyboard ;)

I've not fallen asleep at the keyboard whilst playing, though I have fallen asleep at the keyboard whilst making the second layout (current) version of THS ;) So I think that I have paid.
Bah... And there is me thinking about a new layout... I just need the resources and the knowledge to do it however *sighs deeply*
