Be playing some Panzer Battles PBEM, we've moved to the desert with me as the Brits against Rommel. I picked another EA open world, survival, crafting game, Subsistance so i'll be learning that. Other then that i'll be in the yard as it's going to be a nice weekend here.

The RockStar of the 1970s - Pong

Note my abysmal score of 0 to 14 from the online game of Pong.
My gameplay technique really stinketh. Pong. Get it, get it? Anyone? (Frankie)
http://www.ponggame.org/

"About Pong" from the same website.

"The game was originally developed by Allan Alcorn and released in 1972 by Atari corporations. Soon, Pong became a huge success, and became the first commercially successful game, On 1975, Atari release a home edition of Pong (the first version was played on Arcade machines) which sold 150,000 units. Today, the Pong Game is considered to be the game which started the video games industry, as it proved that the video games market can produce significant revenues.

Nolan Bushnell founded Atari at 1972 in order to create games and ideas and license them to other companies for mass production. Pong was actually a training exercise for one of Atari's employees - Allan Alcorn, Once it was finished, Nolan made few adjustments in order to make the game more interesting (like changing the ball's return angle) and added simple sound effects.... Atari sold more then 35000 Pong arcade machines."

But then, you haven't really experienced Pong until you play the Arcade Pong.

Meet Ralph Baer, the inventer of the fore-runner of Pong, the Brown Box.
This is a fascinating and humorous Smithsonian documentary on Ralph Baer.
It features a head-to-head game between the inventor and the host, Tom Cavanagh.
Sadly, Ralph passed away in 2015. RIP.

So to SUMMARISE, no Pong, no stinkin' Steel Beasts, no stinkin' VBS, no DOW.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

Nothing for me. I just returned from a vacation with no internet access. Maybe tonight, but I'm so tired right now that I doubt it.

It was, thank you.  :howdy I saw some relatives of mine I hadn't seen for years and they were all in good health.
