Ah, skunk, once upon a time, I wondered where you were at. 8)

Do you still have Descent installed and ready to go?

Oh, and AB, here's a recent blurb on Scoundrl ...apparently he's still a master of whatever he plays:

Hey Kids! Whats shakin? When we all gonna meet in Vegas???
I don't know what you all do for fun but I am still a gamer, just do the old school arcade stuff now. You all are welcome to check out my games live on justin.tv at www.justin.tv/scoundrl . You'll catch some old school DigDug, Robotron, Donkey Kong, and Centipede when I get it fixed tomorrow! I'd love to play some good ole D but the few times I've tried noone's been playin.

Take it easy guys, Keep in touch!

Wow - Good to see a lot of folks after so many years. I remember quite a few times during those first Ranger meetings that Sirian blasted me with the white lasers. I always remembered that he liked those lasers and had a preference for D1. But that's coming from a Gauss Ho.

And Sup - Now THAT is a name I remember. In fact, I believe one of my best times in a Descent mine was with Sup in Keg one night. He took my playing to a whole new level when we were having zero lag. We were both dialed in.

Dillir, KB, Verran, 1224, Buef - How could I forget?

I just got D2 loaded on this XP laptop with DosBox and flew all the mines last night.

Who has the Descent-Rangers domain? I want to put it back up and I'll cover all costs.

P.S. - Anybody seen Cemada?

The Rangers website was owned/run by Verran last I knew of, but I think it's out of commission now. If you can find him you might be able to discuss it further, though I haven't seen him in a little while.

MD-1224 is still around though, and I talk to him on a regular basis...

I want to talk to Verran about one of his songs, I'd like to use it for something (and give him the publicity he deserves, his music is really good).

Thanks for the info, you reminded me to follow up on this actually.
As soon as I read your post I contacted him here via PM and I got a reply with permission just now, so all's well.

A lot of us "old timers" are back playing again with the help of a few great programmers redoing the game (called rebirth/retro) and a usb adapter being mass produced again for the 3dpro.
All needed upgrades/info at:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/kalikah ... tif_t=like

Hope to see you on "mumble" soon or at FB.
Lans await again...spread the word!

Mike (aka Descentile)

peace.

Now it should be almost 20 years! And I still remember almost all of your names! Aaronb, Merl and others I have on my old IDL match history! I was in the PPG with some of you as well, and LAN'd with others.

Good times. I'm getting back into action the for a bit.

Look forward to seeing you in the mines.
Of course you won't recognize me...

And now it's been 20 years...and I'm back too. A couple more weeks of getting smoked in the mines should knock the rust off. Day 3 and I cant figure out how far to lead for sh*t! Maybe when I get the adapter for my 3dpro I'll make some improvements. :)

Well I'm a year younger, I'm still technically a "young adult"! Not for long, but whatever. I'm still 16 mentally, no lying.
