    In 1980 I was not old enough to play the lottery but I do remember running off reams of paper playing Oregon Trail on The DECWriter Terminals...the ones with the speedy 300 Baud accoustic coupled Modems (you had to dial{yes an actual dial} the mainframe and then put the phone in the suction cups).

    (S)hoot.....BLAM!....you missed.

    A good use of wide column paper if ever there was one.

          Still got the daughter's but a cartridge is still stuck in it and it won't work.  Have the Super Mario cartridges and the PacMan and Ms. Pacman too.  Still have their Cabbage Patch Dolls too.

            Defender and Tron (and Super Tron) were great!

            So were Kung Fu Master, Galaga, Rastan, Rampage, and Choplifter! 

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                yep the good 'ol days i remember all the games mentioned above.i had an atari and a nintendo and loved them and played 'em for hours and hours every day.some people might laugh but i haven't played a video game since 1991 mainly because they started changing too much from the fun stuff i liked.

                    cell phone

                    This phone measured more than a foot long, weighed almost 2 pounds, and cost $3995, ultimately became commercial available in 1983. Known as the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, its battery could provide 1 hour of talk time, and its memory could store 30 phone numbers.

                              Pac,  your internet propaganda is very funny, and if you wrote or displayed something like that back in the good old days of REAL facism and nazism about one these fellows,  you could expect a visit from one of their buddies.  But I bet you don't have a lot of trouble going to sleep worried about Beavis or Butthead knocking at your door. Or do you?
