..go on

That's about it. I was pretty young at the time but it was a very good show.

Ah! My first rock concert ever. I remember them playing Starrider live. It was a beautiful starry summer night.  :)

Some Little  Richard to wake everybody up from their trance.  :)

Yeah! Let's dance!  :D

Radio with pictures.

I'm thinking Batman...maybe?  :)

MITS did not go out of business.  Rather, they were acquired by Pertec Computer and Ed Roberts (owner of MITS) walked away with $2 million.  Not bad for 1976 and certainly good enough to meet the definition of commercially viable.

I think the Altair would have been a hugely frustrating computer to own with no input/output, not to mention Microsoft would never have gotten off the ground (Altair BASIC was their first product).  :)

They're an interesting footnote to the whole story, at best. It would be interesting to see how one would go about interacting with it. I'll give you that.  ;)

This guy's hypnotic cadence reminds me of astronaut Gordon Cooper.  :D

It's like I'm back in high school. 
"Grunge is great, Nirvana is King" 
"No, it sucks."

Greenday was not too bad- but Nirvana really did suck...  :-*

You would hype the phony band and dis the real one.  ::)

The Altair did not need to sell in Apple II numbers in order to be considered "commercially viable."

"Commercially viable" means that it makes the company money, full stop.  I'm afraid you are conflating "hugely popular" with "commercially viable."  Cray, for example, built commercially successful supercomputers, despite the fact that they built very few of them.

They made a bit of money for a couple years selling their box with no IO only to hobbyists who had the know how to complete it and then went out of business a few years later. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that's no one's definition of commercial viability. Full stop!  ::)  :D

Oh yeah and Clive Sinclair sucks!  ;D

It's funny... i'm generally not a UFO person.  I know Knapp does it well, but generally I find the subject to be without credibility and beat to death.

I find this statement to lack credibility as it's without substance and merely an opinion but, nonetheless, it too is beaten to death by skeptical opinionators, such as yourself.

Can you please edit the Wiki article then?  It gives the reader quite a different impression entirely:

How about you just provide the sales figures for the Altair compared to the Apple II. Then research if the company that makes them is still in business or not and then if Apple still is. Then maybe you could get a fucking clue.  ;D

P.S. Maybe you should stop relying on Wikipedia as your arbiter of truth.  ::)

They remind me of old science educational films about cells. You know, something like Cells: Your Body's Best Friend!  :D

I guess natural phenomena is out of the question, Hoagie?  :-\

uh...... what's the point of this cube satellite this dude wants to launch? Looking for UFO's?  There are tons of sats in space now, i'm sure a flying saucer would be detected by existing sats.

And then transmitted for us all to see, right?  :D

Agreed, he is going into extreme fantasy concepts.

Is he a Trump traumatized snowflake, as I predicted?  :D

Yeah, I know.  I bet her family is having a tough time.  Can you imagine answering questions related to her death?  Sad.

Only someone as steely as Jack Webb could handle it:

Webb: Sir, I sadly regret to inform you your daughter's dead.

Father: Oh my God! How did she die?!

Webb: She drowned in semen, sir.

This one is for Miku.

Japanese porn star drowns to death on semen.


THat's just too sad to even be ironic...thought it is.

What about all the space junk in orbit? :o

Simple. We just need a space Sanford & Son. Cue the harmonica music.  8)

I had Need For Speed (3 I think) down.  In race mode, I'd activate my horn, let my opponent get ahead of me, honk my horn, and blow him off the road, lol. ;D

Yeah, race games were great on the PS1. I played a lot of Driver back then.

Words mean things. 

I'd bet dollars to donuts you're fat, bald and single. Your posts are like yen.

3 strikes, you're out, Eurofag!  ;D

Spyro, Olde Phart fishing games, Need For Speed, MotoCross, that stuff.  Don't know whether they are hentai.

Nope though Spyro is a bit bronyish.  ;)

P.S. Spyro was the one game I had for the system that I couldn't play for longer than 20 minutes or I'd start getting motion sickness.

Of course.  Silly me.  Heh, heh. ;)

Either that or you tried to play too many Japanese hentai games on it.  ;)

Woz would have had to have built the Altair 8800 to have that distinction:

I said commercially viable, numbnutz. The Altair was really only sold to hobbyists and people who already knew about computers.  ::)

I think the belt needs to be replaced.  Do they have belts?

Nope.  :)

You're as dense as they come. You really need to post less dude, or go back to the chan where your brand of idiocy doesn't chase interesting posters away.

A genre should have something to say. Whatever lame crusade waged by Cobain and his contemporaries looks flat-out ridiculous today, in the enormity of our times.

You think you're an "interesting poster?" How adorable! You wouldn't make an interesting poster on a wall.  ;D

It's the music that will live on, you tool!  ::)

I still have my PlayStation 1.

Righteous! Me too. It was a great system.  ;)

I guess Woz who actually built the world's first commercially viable PC doesn't get a mention.  ::)
