Apr 2nd 2012 6:12PM @Bartlebe Yes, since I didn't even bring up Brendan, but was just prodding Justin, it isn't at all obvious that you have a pre-set agenda of your own here. Troll harder.
Apr 2nd 2012 3:39PM Wait, Justin is now reporting on EVE?
Oh, EVE better be on the list for the next "Choose My Adventure."
I want him on coms, in a Rifter, on a fleet roam in null sec.
Mar 15th 2012 7:48PM @Space Cobra I have to call you on that SC. You are incorrect.
I dug out my old copies of GEnie LiveWire and found the one with the May 1, 1989 price changes.
Prices at that time for 300/1200/2400 bps were pegged at $5/$6/$10 per hour respectively at non-prime time, while prime time was $18 a hour.
It changed a lot over time, but the prices were not, as you said, always half prime time rate for off-peak.
Mar 14th 2012 6:30PM Few things get as tedious as fast as following somebody on Twitter who has the full Rift Twitter interface on... unless they also have the Raptr Twitter interface going as well. Then it is worse.
Mar 13th 2012 6:14PM @Celtar Actually, on reflection, I think it was $18 an hour when the off-peak hourly rate was $5, but they lowered it to $12 an hour when they boosted the off-peak to $6 an hour, because that was the kind of stand up guys they were at GEnie.
Or I might be completely wrong. Memories that exceed 20 years in age should be regarded with skepticism. Especially my own. But I did meet Bill Louden once. I have pictures.
Mar 13th 2012 5:35PM @Celtar $18 an hour prime time for GEnie as I recall it. That was to keep you from using their resources during business hours when they were selling the processing time to corporate customers.

And the spiritual successor to Air Warrior was really Aces High, which is still running today.
Mar 13th 2012 1:23PM No mention of MegaWars III/Stellar Emperor? *sniff*
I have actual physical trophies from Kesmai for Stellar Emperor from 1986!
Mar 12th 2012 4:33PM Smed and Smart agree on Twitter that the comparison is silly, though for very different reasons it seems.
Mar 11th 2012 3:57PM "...it is worth noting that he's focusing on the work and letting his game do the talking."
Except when he isn't. Like that shot about Dust 514 a couple of weeks back.
"...but the more the industry changed, and the older I got, the more I realized I needed to be more flexible."
Etch that line in stone. That will likely be the closest he ever comes to admitting he isn't always right.
