Re: Myst 25th anniversary collection

I've always thought of Myst as a William Wordsworth game. You know - "I've wandered lonely as a cloud......."

Re: Cliff Johnson's May Newsletter

While I appreciate knowing the difference between the respective snouts of a crocodile and an alligator, I sincerely hope I never have to be close enough to tell! (from the Bonus section). Love the Newsletter.

Re: Password managers

So, basically, you're only at risk from Norwegians. I've downloaded LastPass from the Firefox add-ons. It looks good but so far I haven't set it up. Apparently it also generates new passwords for users. I do think, however, that bank passwords had better stay right where they are!

Re: Password managers

What are the dangers of password managers getting hacked? I'd like to try one, but wonder what the risk is?

Re: Saved Games Database

Thanks, Draclvr! I'll do that. Honestly, talk about a way to spoil a good game! This particular puzzle would be better suited to Playstation or similar. BTW, lucky DanyBoy! My own son just spent the winter in Cambodia.

Re: Saved Games Database

Ok, renamed it 001 to follow sequentially, but it still starts at the same place. Think I'm going to have to give up here.

Re: Saved Games Database

I'm afraid I've got a quibble. Thought I'd try a replay of Next Life Reprobates. Then I arrived at the Yellow Ball puzzle and find it beyond my abilities these days. So I downloaded the "save" from the Attic but although it says it starts AFTER the puzzle, it actually starts at the beginni...

Sorry to hear this. Don't worry about your reaction, animals love us unconditionally, unlike our interactions with our families.

That's great news, Starlite, what a relief to have that burden off your shoulders. What kind of country living do you have in mind?

Re: Instant pots

I don't mind spending time in the kitchen as long as it's spent on making things I like: date squares, anyone?

Re: Instant pots

Interesting discussion. I had a pressure cooker many many years ago, the kind with a jiggler control. I used it for cabbage rolls but not much else as I found the taste was not the same as "properly" cooking on top of the stove. A great time saver for people who work,etc. though. Over all,...
