Re: Making the site easier to read?

For what it's worth, I "lose" my place and sometimes miss errors in my own copy at times as well (and therefore have to proof it much more carefully). I suspect it's common simply because your mind already has an image of what it's supposed to see, if that makes sense.

Re: Making the site easier to read?

To repeat (more bluntly) my earlier thoughts as a lifetime editor/publisher: please give up whatever is driving you to experiment with those background shades, stripes, etc. All of them are annoyingly distracting and divert the mind/eye away from what is not a overly long text block. Just...stop.

Re: Making the site easier to read?

As a lifetime newspaper editor (35 years, including 20 w/ websites) I'm a hard "no" on the change for the simple reason mentioned earlier - it distracts the eye from the text. One of the reasons your site has been so popular for an uncommonly long time is because it's readable and you have...

Re: 2020/5/6: Atari XEGS: Eidolon, The, Koronis Rift

Eidolon wasn't the first real-time first-person maze game. This came three years earlier and is far superior (lots of remakes, including a free browser version, exist today).

Re: Hottest Video Game Babes

I feel like I've gone through life with a totally different take on "hot" than most. So when I post this pic of LC it's not about measurements, sleezy clothes, come-get-me vibe or anything similar. To me, if a woman still looks good, has her brain/wits and is ready to take on more adventur...

Re: Best Console Design Decisions

D-pad on NES. The "joystick" controller that became the standard after every previous controller had some kind of flaw.

Re: Remember Type-In Games?

I had a Color Computer and have been able to play a huge number of type-in games from The Rainbow magazine (the main CoCo publication) using the Rainbow on tape/disk files easily found at plenty of archive/fan sites. I'm sure there are similar archives for other machines.
