Re: 1190: "Time"

Today, the Book of Aubron shows a weird "pageok" page. Anyone recalls what it looked like back when it actually worked? I remember it being originally a rainbow page, with the OTC automatically playing (like a .gif) in the middle of it. Later on it got controls to pause, reverse, etc. ......

Re: 1190: "Time"

The weather here has been in the single digits Fahrenheit above zero since Christmas. Frosty.

80236. Is this a alternate universe computer? Intel made the 80286, which basically kicked off the PC era. Never heard of a 80236 though.

It has snowed here. The roads basically shut down yesterday, because apparently nobody has ever seen snow before, despite this (the first snowfall) happening every year.

Cuegan left on their adventure 3 nopix later, the whole trip took 3 nopix longer, and they arrived too late to help the Forty. Thus ends Time.
