GORILLA.BAS: How to Play the Secret MS-DOS Game From Your Childhood

Starting in 1991, every copy of MS-DOS (and many versions of Windows) included a hidden artillery game called Gorillas. It inspired a generation of programmers and drew the ire of computer lab instructors everywhere. Here’s how it came to be—and how to play it today.

GORILLA.BAS: How to Play the Secret MS-DOS Game From Your Childhood

Maybe I should keep notes during the week because at soon as it’s Sunday evening I’m absolutely not in the head space to try to remember what happened last week.

On the internet people mostly talked about NFTs. Twitter had the brilliant idea to have NFT profile pictures, which as far as I am concerned, is a good way to see directly who’s worth a block. You don’t even need to click through and look at their profile for a .eth in their name or bio.

Wordle is still a thing. (Tiger was my only first-try word so far. I’m mostly in the four or fives these days but I didn’t lose once. So that’s something, I guess.)

Meanwhile I watched the Eternals movie, which was a bit long, but mostly okay. And the new episode of Boba Fett, which was just… well, it was. I didn’t even really manage to form an opinion. It’s not bad but let’s be honest – it’s also a bit forgettable.

If someone pitches you on a "great" Web3 project, ask them if it requires buying or selling crypto to do what they say it does.Sources and Further Readinghtt...

Bob Saget - They Love One Another Like Brothers Do - 9/12 Visits In Chronological Order

Only the third week for these posts and I’m already running out of steam.

Again the only thing I really watched was the Boba Fett series. It’s amusing but also kind of meh.
I did finish my 24 hours race — just barely winning with a 12 second lead. Driving the same lap over and over and over again for that long is nicely meditative and perfect for powering down the brain. Just driving in circles and listening to podcasts. I’d do it in real life, but I figure this way is a bit nicer to the environment.
