don't you miss those days. I remember having a boxing game that took at least 30-40 minutes to load.

Although my laptop was a present last christmas, I just received a wireless router and pcmcia card. So instead of sitting in the cold basement I am in my kitchen ignoring the family.

LOL! I remember playing Jeopardy and Winter and Summer Olympics competitions on a Commodore 64. Those were the days when you could get excited about creating Mr. Bo Jangles, the dancing stick figure, using BASIC! Those were also the days when my computer science class homework could be completed without a computer!

I do miss my old commadore. I barely remember the thing, and was probably too young to be any good at the games anyway, but still I think fondly of it. I was a little more attatched to my Atari ST, which was the next one I had. Oh man, did that thing have some good games!

I had a Commadore 128 and except for the slow loading, the lockups and the inability to use multiple windows, I really did love that thing. Actually several of the programs had functions that I can't find on similar programs in windows, functions that I really miss.

Oh well, I just have to console myself with my new cable internet connection. :smile:

I did get Legos, though just a tiny box of 32 legos...it was a present from my nephew. :biggrin: He got everyone some sort of toy or game for Christmas...pretty precocious for an 18 mo old, don't you think? Is it any wonder I spoil him rotten?

Other than that, nothing I asked for. I got a nice green suede jacket with a fur collar. It's a nice jacket, but nothing I needed or would have chosen for myself. I just got a new winter jacket last month that I'm happy with already (it unzips apart so I can also use it as just a fleece or windbreaker in addition to being a very warm winter jacket, and has a ton of pockets inside and out...it's everything I ever dreamed of in a jacket), so now a suede jacket is rather pointless. I have a good, long, wool coat for when I need to dress up (more practical than a jacket if I'm wearing a skirt too, since it keeps my legs warm), so really, I don't know when I'll ever wear a suede jacket. What a waste of money. Who buys someone a jacket without asking anyway?

No new computer, but mine is pretty new already. Just got it in September or October (can't remember now).

And nobody expects you to remember which month it was, what with your mind on your jacket dilema.

no batteries

since this seems to be a system thread....

i bought a "walkman" since my old one still works (old faithful). the new one does quit a bit (ev'rything 'cept bring me coffee) except take batteries. It is a portable CD player (that is ALL I wanted it for) but I can't be portable with it. It says it is a "walkman" but it must really be a sit-man since it doesn't take batteries! No, I'm not furious, the universe knows I like a good puzzle and I have no common cents, so maybe it's just space age and will play without batteries? Is that possible?

it is a Sony tv/weather/fm/am/ atrac3plus mp3 that is what is on the face of it, and on the bottom of cd player it says CD WALKMAN D - NF400

i am hoping maybe someone has one and can splain to me what is up with it not taking batteries.

all i wanted was something that played regular CDs, i don't kow anything about mp3's don't wanna to, they are too large. i don't watch tv much, well very rarely, and radio once in a blue moon. i just wanted the Walk man part is all and so is it possible it is not portable altho it looks portable?

I wish I had known that walkmans quit walking :yuck:

:confused: Then why did you buy a new one.

Put a car battery in a backpack, hook up an inverter, plug it in, and walk.

mp3's are compressed files. They are around 5-10meg per file. as opposed to 50meg for a .wav. To put it in simpler terms: You can only fit approx 20 songs (.wav) on a cd, whereas you can put 100 mp3's on a cd.
