That's a bummer. I mean that most sincerely. Keep it handy, though. Next time you get a PC, you can jam the game. At least for now, you got some very clever and insightful comment from Madness about being able to enjoy the box art, not to mention the truth of that. And you got to make me laugh with that topic title. I hope that wonâ€™t be confused with laughing at what happened, because thatâ€™s a bummer. But really, man. You'll get another PC sometime, though.
This dude came over to my apartment one evening like about four years ago with a copy of GTA Vice City for PCâ€”said it was a gift for me, and then asked if he could play it on my PC (I only had one PC at the time). I said I was too busy working on something that I had to get done on the computer. He asked if he could play GTA Vice City while I did that, and I said we both couldnâ€™t use it at the same time, and I really had to get done with what I was working on because it was for someone else. He said, Oh, yah.
I had one of those â€˜Oh, yahâ€™ moments, myself recently, courtesy of Madness (lol). They just sneak right up on you, donâ€™t they, then? Kind of like your unfortunate incident with the system requirements for DPL, I guess.
Anyway, speaking of whichâ€”I thanked him for the gift (GTA Vice City for PC), and looked at the system requirements listed on the box. I said, â€œMy computer wonâ€™t run this, so Iâ€™ll have to wait till I get another one, and play it then.â€ So, he asked if he could have it back, and heâ€™d go get something else instead. I said, â€œOkay,â€ and showed him what I was talking about by system requirements, so he could be sure my rig could run whatever he traded it in for. He split, but didnâ€™t come back anytime soon. Next time I saw him he said he went back and traded it for a game he could play on his Playstation, and went home to jam some vid since I was busy. Hell of a gift. LOL!
867-5309 â€œI got it!â€ I still remember this guy from school telling me about that song back in like 1982. He said, â€œThose dudes is bad.â€ â€” the band, I meanâ€”Tommy Tutone or whatever it was. One night we were partying at his house while his parents were out of townâ€”I guess just about everyone wasâ€”and somebody lit the couch on fire. Everyone got kicked out, except for the few he was close friends with or whatever. So, then the dude took us to a big double wide garage out back that had no cars in it, just a bunch of stolen tennis nets strung up across the entire place like some big circus trapeze net deal. We climbed up on that and partied there for the rest of the night.
Itâ€™s all right to be off-topic in this thread at this point, isnâ€™t it? Again, buddy, sorry about that mishap with your new game. That sucks.
