Lots of vids in here… sometimes I start watching one and soon decide it sucks so I hit pause and move on to the next one. Yet the paused vid naturally keeps loading, which obviously slows down the subsequent vids.
Is there a way to stop the loading of an embedded Youtube video without reloading the page?
Not really, but you can skip to the very end of the video you no longer want to watch so it only loads the last few seconds, thus less slow down.
My first inclination would be to call it DB15 as well, but a few years back when I looked into this the internet corrected me and Ive since been able to remember its DA15.
I didnt realize the reasoning behind it though, or that the DB9 is a DE9. Now I know, haha
Speaking of geeky, my relatively new motherboard has a serial port on it, and it actually gets used occasionally (albeit mostly because of loathsome USB to serial drivers)
I still have an old 15-pin Logitech Flight Stick in a bin in my basement. Looks like this but the base is gray.
I used to play the hell out of Microprose's F-19 Stealth Fighter on a 386 with that bad boy.
I got F-117 Nighthawk when it came out. Sweet!
I still have an ISA sound card & ISA modem in an old Micron baby AT that was my computer in college. Don't know why I haven't thrown it away yet; all the good/sentimental pr0n has already been archived off it.
I am getting the urge to fire up the NES emulator and play Little Ninja Brothers.
Funny, I was playing Metroid just the other day. I have an emulator (NESren?) running on the media-center PC in the living room, and a USB gamepad which is fairly similar to the original NES controller. (Stylistically, it's more of a knockoff PS1 controller, but without the analog sticks.)
And it has a Turbo button, just like the old NES Advantage. Makes all the difference.
Speaking of which, I still have an Advantage lying around somewhere. I need to get off my *** and convert it to USB.
Ken williams where are you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why?!?!??!?!?!?!
Last I heard, he had finished sailing across the Atlantic in a powerboat and was moderating an online forum where people pine about the old days. I was active there back in '03 or so, it's kind of depressing, though. http://www.sierragamers.com/
I always thought Ken was kind of weird. I first got into Sierra games back when the company was small enough that it was actually possible to write a letter to the owners of the company and get an actual response back. I still have a letter that Roberta wrote to me tucked away somewhere, along with several dozen letters from the Hint Department. (Remember them?)

Space Quest was my favorite series, and I had kind of the same let-down experience there. #1-3 were great, 4 was good, and I never finished 5. It just sucked that much.
By that time, of course, LucasArts had really gotten into full swing. Monkey Island, Sam & Max, Full Throttle, even Grim Fandango was excellent, despite being in a foo-foo 3D environment.
I think this was the last game of its kind...so sad. depressed mode again.
On a totally unrelated yet highly ridiculous note, while my wife and I were in Thailand on the island of Samui, we stayed at a resort that happened to have a restaurant. And at this restaurant they had this heavily accented guitar and vocalist. he played all the weird songs of our youth and random ones from adulthood and **** me if he didn't just roll from some james taylor into the super mario music. it sounded really good on an acoustic guitar!
