Yeah this is, at the very least, "other keen stuff".

Nice to see the Keen border. You would forget that it is a feature of the game - a moddable one at that - in this era where the game is mostly played on laptops.

So it's my birthday tomorrow (possibly today, for some of you - August 4th.)

I made myself what is basically a chocolate frosted tiramisu because WHY NOT.

That's so wholesome. A little late in the day for me to say this, but happy birthday dude! Hope the cake was good. :)

Well I mean. I bake every damn week anyway so it was a natural extension of such!

Will Fleexy ever have the balls to confront me in the eye, or is he still a coward?

Sorry for the delay, Rorie, I've been busy with work and stopped by the forum mostly to nuke spammers. I previously gave you some time off for attacking other members. It wasn't a permanent ban because I believe people can change, but evidently some more time is warranted. You may return September 14, 2022. (Since there may be the appearance of conflict of interest here, other staff are encouraged to review this action and adjust it if appropriate.)

Here's my current D-Fend Reloaded dos games collection:

(images redacted from quote)

These are the most, but not all of my DOS games and mods.
I'm not the biggest L2 fan so maybe that's why, but I've never heard of a mod "Oh Yes! More Lemmings!". I think Lemmings Forums would be quite interested to hear about that one... ;)

That's just a level pack I've begun to make. More like testing the waters. I'm not even sure if I'll finish it though. It's just that the editor is not quite to my taste. And it turns out there's simply not enough tile variety in the game (as I remember) to work on new levels that I would like to make.

A mildly interesting chunk of news relevant to the IT sector upon which our favourite leisure activity (playing a game of Keen) and most of our livelihoods relies. Also relevant to me as it relates to a piece of land mere minutes drive from where I grew up. One single, extremely eccentric farmer, has been objecting and battling for about half a decade against Intel who want to plough $4bn into the next expansion of their Irish factory in the town of Leixlip. He has been a thorn in their side and really believes that this investment (which apparently would bring 6k construction jobs and then over 1.5k actual factory jobs) should be blocked (his farm would undergo compulsory purchase, for multiple millions). Even a big country (e.g. UK, France, Germany) would consider 4 billion dollars a big deal, let alone a small country of 5 million people. This factory is truly one of the world's most important - it's the only one in Europe (700m people) and presumably serves all of neighbouring Africa (>1bn, already 10% of which have a PC and this will likely skyrocket in forthcoming decades) too, the closest factory being all the way over in Israel. But one man disagrees!
