    DOS window

    "Does somebody else remember how he made a specially optimized boot disk for running Harrier Jump Jet ...?" Oh my God, Urwumpe! I DO remember doing that ~ on the Indian island of Timor, wasn't it? I had a blast shooting the little village huts and palm trees, LOL. Wow, did you ever bring...
