Wouldn't be too surprised if Maniac Mansion and DotT make a reappearance (or so I keep hoping..)

Re: Swiss girl suffering from itchy feet

I will observe how this thread develops with interest. So much young, unleashed testosterone in such a small space.

I have vague memories of getting GF working one rainy weekend in a Windoze 7 VM some time ago. Seeing Manny's username made me want to hear the tolling of the bell when you whip out your scythe again. Maybe I will have a go at getting it working again... If I remember, I will respond to my own post with instructions.
I just like walking round the town in the dark, especially the bit near that pretty blue and green lift. Also all the music. Now I really wish we hadn't got rid of our copy.

It's on my things-to-do-as-a-family list for this autumn already. We had a great time last year playing Tales of Monkey Island on the Wii with our five-year-old.

Just let me know if there is something you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask!
I always have wanted to know: how much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Thanks,

Tom

Well I'm not sure if Swiss woodchucks exist, but apparently on a 24 hour basis, a woodchuck can chuck 361.92* cubic centimeters of wood.

From my small memory base, marmots are generally mountainous creatures, where woodchucks are generally lowland dwellers.
