OT: Dilbert, better late than never
This would have been REALLY funny about a year ago, but it still gives
me a chuckle:

...Re: OT: Better Late than Never
I do have to correct the record. This piece was posted by David Ward, whose
presence on SAS-L - and SUGs I attend - I cannot tell you how sorely I miss
ever since he quit the worldly life and dedicated his stupendous talents and
inimitable heart to what he sees as a higher purpose. It was merely my
homage to David that sometime around Christmas of 2007, I offered my own
$.02 in the same spirit and using a little simpler and different language to
code SAS music:

A guid new year to you all, Spec-chums! Have some shortbread and a lump
of coal. (It's traditional round these parts, although God alone knows
what use one measly lump of coal ever was to anyone, but that's
traditions for you, eh? It's also one of those ancient treasured
traditions that nobody actually does any more.)
I couldn't post earlier - server rubbishness, which also means I can't

To be absolutely honest, although I have been "into" home computers (Oric,
Dragon, BBC, Enterprise, Amstrad) since 1983, I had never used a Commodore

Just over a year or so I was given a full C128 system, with 3 x 1541 drives,
MPS801 printer, Quickshot joystick, monitor, and heaps of 5.25" disks. This

Very impressive. Haven't been so impressed in a new graphics genre since
Super stylish graphics, good weapons, great sound fx, good music, super
"hilite" feature which pops up windows showing other things going on.
Hopefully a great storyline to boot.
Lousy control configuration though : but since that's a "do it once and
forget" interface I don't care too much.
Definitely on my "I want it now" list.

Thanks to Steam, I effortlessly bought and ran "Thief - Deadly Shadows".
1) My 1.5 year old pc really chugs with this one. I have to lower some
details and run at 800x600.
2) It still looks AWESOME
I am *so* impressed. This engine was before it's time. The particle
effects and ambiance are second to none. Great variety of "commenting"
from the other characters, good storyline progression, superb scenery,
good positional sound.
An absolute bargain at 19 dollars.

I actually bought this game when it first came out. I had fun with it,
but got derailed at the part where you are taken captive by the MJ12 and
lose all your gear. That annoyed me. I got sidetracked by some other
game at that point, then went back to it when the patch was released.
However, the patch seemed to break my savegames, or I was unable to save.
I cannot recall the exact problem. So years pass and now I finally
decided to finish this game. Installed it, patched it, and played the
game from the beginning.
I'm now done. That was quite a lot o...Better Late Than Never
