How messed up is that?
at that price a 160GB iPod classic would run you
$54 368 000 000
nearly 54.5BILLION DOLLARS
It'd be 55,672,832, ie 55.7 MILLION dollars
Still a shitload.
also, show your working
(I have a feeling we're both wrong)
And there was this talk about it being a SUPERCOMPUTER and would China use it guide nukes to the US? I even remember my mate saying that PCs were done, it looked so amazing.
By the time it came out PCs were already twice as good. Now your average Smartphone probably makes it look like a 70s calculator.
why anyone would opt for the absence of boobs is beyond me.
The girl goes through a series of misfortunes/choices that all have numbers associated with them. The final result of this multiplication, additions, etc. is the value that, when turned round, 'spells' BOOBLESS, which is what she ends up as at the end of the tale.
where I come from it was just a naughty word
It was always a sort of shaggy dog tale in both my primary and secondary schools. The teller would enter the values as they told the tale. All things considered it was pretty clever stuff.
I guess in a time when having a calculator at all was impressive it was good to have an excuse to go and play on someone's.
and I thought *I* wasted a lot of class time in school
It was a tale for the LADs in my class to tell, really.
There was a girl who was (13),
she wanted a bra size (84),
but she had a bra size (45),
she went to the doctor who said (0),
take these pills (2x) a day,
but she took them (4x) a day,
and she ended up (=)
You see? I knew I was right.
1. type 55378008 into your calculator
2. save it into the memory
3. type in 0.7734
4. tap the shoulder of the girl that sits at the desk in front of you at school
5. point to your calculator
6. she sees ‘hello’ and smiles
7. press MR
8. await shitstorm
to be 13 again
Thank god I DiS using my mallet and chisel
as Monkey Island II came on 11 discs. such a harddrive cost about £350 and my father said no :'(
I think it was about £200. Crazy stuff.
"I remember playing Monkey Island 2 on my first PC which came on about 12 floppy discs. Literally every minute it was saying “Please insert disc 7 to continue…”. Then a mate's Dad bought a 20mb hard drive and he installed it on there. Playing Monkey Island 2 without the disc swapping was the future."
So which was it? 11 or 12 discs?
Was it the one with the wheel that you had to spin round to get the code to play. If so I had that one too.
So both could be accurate.
Office 6 came on 32 low density 3.5" floppies or something like that. Wing Commander 2 came on 14 but obviously only 7 HD ones. The speech accessory pack came on 21. In total Wing Commander 2 took up about 21MB of hard drive space (including the speech pack) I think. Or was the basic game 21MB? It may have been.
This was at a time when 20MB HDs were standard and rarely people even had 40MB HDs!
