Guy's Lawsuit: Gimme $6 Billion or a copy of Windows 7!!!

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/02/1 ... windows_7/

I can't say anything else to summarize the story; the title says it all.

So is the guy crazy? Stupid? Smart? A bit of both? Does Microsoft deserve this for forcing upgrades on users?

This is the one I bought: http://psychosaurus.com/turok/turok088.htm They had several; picked this one based on the cover picture and the price. :) I have two or three of the Valiant comics.

Mini Arcade Games

Tastemakers is planning to make some mini arcade cabinets for home use. Looks like they'll have 4 built-in games. They're actually using a trackball for the Centipede version, which is kinda cool.

Re: 60 years of Turok

Finally found an old Turok comic. Fairly fun read, and that cover art is amazing. Here's a gallery of the old covers: http://psychosaurus.com/plain/turokindex.html

Not much to say about this one; I'm not a major sports fan. Nice 3D-ish fx tho. Still not sure if it would've been able to stand up against PSX and N64 sports games.
