  12. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I was hoping that my sinister trick would work. GBS really did die on November second and really did die at 94 from injuries sustained falling off a ladder. But it was 1950 and not 1955. Unfortunately, everyone either knew too much or too little about GBS for my clever deception to succeed...
  13. TomB Administrative Assistant

    Too little, in MY case...;)
  14. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Dang it... I didn't get the right answer...

    Now...

    FLART?...

    :rolleyes:
  15. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Too little for me as well :)
  16. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Wow, someone actually voted for my answer....2 someones....

    Now I am wondering when CGA monitors were invented?
  17. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    1981, but I blanked out when I was answering and thought CGA's were something totally different. If I'd thought about it, I'd have realized 1955 didn't sound right for color monitors. Oh well.
