Καλός το MacOS 8!

Copland με την εμφάνιση "Hi Tech"Από τότε που άρχισα να ασχολούμαι με υπολογιστές στο λύκειο άρχισα να διαβάζω για τα Mac και για τις καινοτομίες τις Apple. Τότε υπήρχαν τρία περιορικά: το MacUser, το MacWorld, και το MacAddict. Αποφάσισα στην πρώτη

Syndicate | Done!

Recently I completed the game Syndicate on the xbox 360 (continuing to make my way though my backlog of games) :-).  The game is based on the game which has the similar name from a little over 20 years ago, by developed BullFrog.  The original syndicate game was a DOS and MacOS game (I am pretty sure it was on the Amiga as well) where the player started their own corporation with the aim

Video game music covers

I was listening to the VG Empire podcast the other day and the subject was music from the WarCraft games.  I've only really played Warcraft II back when I had my ol' trusty Performa 635CD, but the music from that game has stuck in my  head.   Recently I came across this cover of one of the songs that exemplifies that game's music for me :-).I remember playing a lot of this game...and

Warcraft...the movie?

I came across this movie trailer the other day for a Warcaft movie.  I've never been much into World of Warcraft the MMORPG, I have an aversion to paying montly fees for playing games (which is why I like free-to-play games like Defiance).  The last time I played warcraft, it was WarCraft 2 on my Performa 635 and it looked like this:Watching the trailer I got vibes of Avatar and Lord of

Another apple keynote? When did that happen?

When I was younger I used to inhale Apple Keynotes.  I think part of it was Steve Job's presentation style that really drew me in.  I was also a big Apple fan (well, I still am), so I really wanted to know what products came out and get all the related specs and dirt as soon as possible  Early on this meant buying MacAddict, and heading to the Boston Public library to read the most

Ο Πρώτος υπολογιστής

IBM PS/2 Model 12Αφού λοιπόν το πρώτο καλοκαίρι θα το περνάγαμε στην Βοστόνη, ήταν ευκαιρία να ζητήσω υπολογιστή από τον πατέρα. Όλες οι εργασίες στο λύκειο έπρεπε να είναι γραμμένες στο υπολογιστή, τίποτα δεν ήταν δεκτό το οποίο

More classic goodness, in your web browser

Well.  As if running MacOS 6 in vMac on your smartwatch wasn't enough, if you are craving some classic operating systems check out PCE.js which allows you to run MacOS 6 in a web browser, as well as Windows and DOS.  I wonder what my younger self would think of this if I had seen this 20 years ago... Now it's time to start emulating Amigas, IIgs, and OS/2. If you feel nostalgic for Windows

Macintosh II on Android Wear

I guess it was only a matter of time before some ported emulators  on Android Wear.  This one is a port of vMac, the Mac Classic emulator which I think runs System 6 and System 7. On a touch-screen, with touch screen controls, it's not all that great. However, if someone could figure out a way to pair a bluetooth keyboard and mouse to it... that could be something. Of course the utility

My most recent ubuntu experiment

I've been experimenting with Linux on and off since 1999.  I was first introduced to linux when I was working at Barnes and Noble and I was working on the textbook floor with a number of other computer geeks. I think the first distro that I heard of was Slackware, but I don't think I have actually ever actually installed slackware.  I remember seeing their software boxes at stores like MicroCenter

Εισαγωγή στην Επιστήμη!

Ένα από τα μαθήματα που είχα την πρώτη μου χρονιά στο λύκειο, όταν επέστρεψα από την Ελλάδα, ήταν το μάθημα που λεγόταν “εισαγωγή στην επιστήμη” ή στα Αγγλικά Introduction to Physical Sciences (IPS), δηλαδή μια εισαγωγή στην φυσική και στην

Adieu Library Books!

I can't believe I missed this bit of news last February!  I was checking to see if there are any updates to one of my favorite applications - library books - when I saw a note from the author that the software would not longer be updated.  Too bad, because this was quite a useful application, both on the Mac originally, and then on iOS.  This app allowed you to log into your local academic

Old school troubleshooting!

It's been a long time coming, but RapidWeaver 6.0 is out!  I have to say, I haven't kept up with RapidWeaver as much as I have in previous years because I had gotten my website (club-admiralty) to the point where it was OK. Not too bad, not good enough, but then again not enough time to really mess around with it, so I stuck with RapidWeaver 5.  I've been using the product since version 2.0,

Diablo III | Done!

[spoilers] Over the weekend I had the opportunity to complete Diablo III on my xbox, yay!  I've been looking forward to this game since I heard about it last year, however I only bought the thing this past August when it came out for xbox, the price was right, and it included the Reaper of Souls expansion.  I've been playing it over the weekend ever since I came back from my doctoral orientation

Ο υπολογιστής μου δεν είναι φυσιολογικός; (!)

Είχα πάει σε μια συνάντηση με κάτι άλλα παιδιά από την τάξη μου να συζητήσουμε περί μιας εργασία που ήταν να κάνουμε μαζί. Είχα ετοιμάσει λοιπόν κάτι σχετικά γραπτά, μια παρουσίαση σε powerpoint, και πήρα τον υπολογιστή μου και
