I stumbled upon www.gog.com[^] last night and as I was browsing through their catalogue the memories started comming back. They have so many excellent classics... Sanitarium, Phantasmagoria, King's Quest, Fallout, Heroes etc...
In the end I couldn't resist buying the first Commandos game. I took me 2 minutes to create the account, buy the game and start the download. Everything is DRM-free, patched to work on XP, Vista and Win7. For $6 or $10 it's great value for money. I installed Commandos last night to test if it works and it runs perfectly on Win7 32bit. I did the training missions and now I can't wait to get home and jump right into the campaign, 10 years after I did it for the first time.

I guess it's wiser to emulate those old machines if you don't have the real thing anymore
A while ago he asked me what he should have printed on my business cards. I said 'Wizard'.
I read books which nobody else understand. Then I do something which nobody understands. After that the computer does something which nobody understands. When asked, I say things about the results which nobody understand. But everybody expects miracles from me on a regular basis. Looks to me like the classical definition of a wizard.
My mind can accept and process and believe in all the arguments that are supplied both internally and externally. My stomach on the other hand cannot, it just refuses to even consider it. I have a feeling if I forced the issue it would stop talking to me for a few years.
