#3453: So I dug out the old Celeron....

Escaflowne. The old Celeron 333 (overclocked to 500 from the factory). Whee!

See, I was telling my nephew about Carmageddon, and decided--WTF--I'd just show him. original plan had been to run Escaflowne off the TV in the family room. Pipe the video through the VCR and off you go--the video card in this old machine has a composite video out.

Problem is, the TV couldn't quite sync to it, and I don't know why. And I threw out all my old serial mice, so I have to use keyboard for everything. I couldn't really see what I was doing, so I gave up and plugged it into the blab slab in place of El-Hazard.

That worked; and then after some other teething pains I was able to get Carmageddon running. I still can't get the sound to work, and I'm not sure why, but everything else seems to be working.

So we spent some time playing that, and laughing our asses off at how deranged it is.

And once I finish this plate of leftover yakisoba, I'm going to play it some more.
