these were the types of computers we had at school back in the early ninties because new technology had come along and no one new what to do with the old computers. So they donated them to schools to get cheap tax write-offs.

I looked at the FAQ, but I don't have the choice to create a pool at the bottom of my Edit, Post Reply, or New Thread creation pages. Maybe I don't have enough priveliges? You can post one if you want, it'd be interesting to see what people would vote for, but I won't promise to actually do what gets the most votes. Actually, I'm kinda leaning towards snake, a galaxian clone, or a 2d sidescrolling motorcycle racer, but put in all of the different ideas, (or just the best/most common) and lets see what wins!

Can people really fall off a mountain, or is that a matter of speech?

anyways, yeah. If some one could get a hold of the old version to see how it went, maybe that old relic could be brought back to life.

I have a Windows 3.1 version of that, and a demo for Oregon Trail 3 which was coming out in 1995 It was the very same game, just some better graphics.

Actually, I believe it was 5 1/4" floppy. I don't remember any system that had a 5 1/2". There's 5 1/4" and 3 1/2". Maybe I'm just getting senile in my old age though!

That game sounds familiar for some reason.

You want a real good idea that could make you lots of money. Make an all purpose Point Of Sale system. One that is totaly customizable to handle any business. And easily upgradable. Give that a go.

Think about an area in VB that you aren't to good at/know nothing about and then think 'What sort of program could I build that would allow me to learn about it?' and Bob's you uncle, you have you next project.
