New episode features not my favorite genre, but I really gave it as much as I could. I really wanted to fly a whole mission but my brain and heart said nope. I'm sorry I didn't get all the sounds in the game for you. I hope you enjoy the episode and I thank you for listening.
I usee to love the sims (flight style not Sid style). I first had one on the TI-99/4a. I recall it couldn't even draw the whole horizon. The horizon was represented by three evenly spaced blue/green boxes in a line.
Then on the Apple//c I had the subLOGIC sims. I loved how that one started you out at Miegs Field in Chicago, where you could see the Hancock tower. I later went to college in Champaign IL, and we had the guy that wrote it come to our student ACM chapter. Bruce something or other. I also love this one called Jet, on the Amiga. That one actually had a carrier you could see and maybe land on.
Ferg, you had asked about my little song. It was ukelele, piano, trumpet and vocals recorded using the MTR feature of the Zoom H4N. I highly recommend this unit. I have made a ton of bootleg recordings with it and only recently started using the MTR feature.
I have to say that I was surprised to hear that. I like it when a podcaster does a preamble to talk about whatever they want to talk about. As far as I'm concerned, Ferg should get back to doing it as he was before. It would be perfectly fine to hear Ferg talk about Extra Life in the next episode.
