MOOOOOOOM, I'M BOOOOOOORED
Really? Didn't I just give you and your sister that thing that adds like 180 tracks to Mario Kart Wii
? YEAH BUT SHE'S NOT AROUND AND MARIO KART REALLY BENEFITS FROM ANOTHER PLAYER
Well, maybe I could play with you? COME ON MOM YOU'RE, LIKE, OLD OR SOMETHING
So? What's your point? I WANT SOMETHING THAT'S JUST AS MUCH FUN BY MYSELF, BUT ALSO FOR WII, AND IDEALLY IT SHOULD ALSO HAVE OVER A HUNDRED LEVELS BECAUSE THAT PART IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT [more inside]

RPG Maker 2000 did exactly what its name suggested: it allowed non-programmers to design turn-based RPGs. Translated to English by Don Miguel
, who included his tutorial game Don's Adventures
with the program, it and its subsequent versions are still available for download
. While in recent years the engine has been used for a number of noteworthy titles
, back in the day it resulted in a number of charmingly amateur titles — one of which was the legendary A Blurred Line
, by Lysander86. Part of what made ABL special was its story
, which was crude but compelling; partly it was the gameplay
, which was impressively varied and offered a number of branching story paths based on player choice. A Blurred Line was never finished; there's a Windows download
that includes the first chapters, A Blurred Line and The Line Narrows, but the finale, The Line's End, was never released. Lys86 has claimed he is still working on the game, most recently in 2010
, but it's been over a decade
since its original release, and hope for that final release is slim-to-nonexistent.

Lots of people remember the Cray-1A
. And how could you not, it was a supercomputer with built-in seats
. But Chris Fenton has done more than just reminisce, he he built his own 1/10 scale Cray-1A
. It's not just a model, it actually runs Cray software. The only problem is there doesn't seem to be much Cray software on the net, so if you have some let him know.

I first heard of a 'Paraset'
when I saw a message on the QRP-L
reflector announcing an upcoming 'June 6th Paraset D-Day
' activity. A search for more information soon revealed that the Paraset was a small vacuum-tube transmitter-receiver unit built during WWII in the UK at the Whaddon Hall
headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service Communications Unit. Known officially as the 'Whaddon Mark VII
', the units were either air-dropped by parachute or carried, by the jumpers themselves, into many of the occupied countries of western Europe. . .

Driving down the street in my Panzer tank,
sittin’ drinkin’ Cris’ with my bitch Anne Frank.
And when I step into the club’s you know I’m steppin with style!
Raise my left hand,
