I'll accept that others use the entire rainbow, but only women believe that every fruit, wine and whatever is a colour! (ie: Peach, Olive, Burgandy, Hazel and other non-existant colours)
oh yes, those freaking Fuchsia, how do they work ?

seriously only a girl would say her dress is Fuchsia... a man would say it is sexy or not.


you know, one day someone told them that Orange was the colour and the fruit... and as they have less imagination they used this as a rule.

TRUE !



I dunno if I'd agree with ALL of that.  I get mighty annoyed when people refer the magenta usage in my graphics as PINK.  It's...not...frickin'...pink...

Forgive me for my ignorance, I'd also say carnation through to salmon were just different shades of pink...  :-[    ;D

Heh, that reminds me... my neices grew up in Hong Kong and they were always confused by "orange" as all the oranges they saw were green.

When I think about the multicolor pictures done by Markus in MODE 1 (CYM dithering) then I think ... three colors are enough  ;)

My first PC had an Amber (Orange for men :D ) CGA screen. For some reason it was always my favourite. I still think it's quite cool to work on one. There's something very retro about it :)

Thank you for the translation. :D
Yes, better than green screens... I already got one with an ISA "Hercule" card.
Nice for doing debug on a second screen, while the program is running...

 @Bryce: so when your wife asks you, "what colour should my next car be?", you will tell her, "128,156,212"? :D Also, there's a really fantastic terminal program for the Mac that has all sorts of old-school fx. Can't remember the name, and I know you don't use a Mac, but I really wish someone ported it to the Windows/Linux platforms...

Orange is just washed out red, so Amber qualifies as red. Everything red in the laundry sooner or later ends up "orange-y" if the laundry is left to men. But it still is red to me. :P

And if you follow that line of thinking to the end: pink is just a form of white if you forgot to sort out the white laundry from the red shirts. :D

Of course not! I recommended #6A6B6B but in the end she went for #2F4F4F. :)

Nice item, but nothing more than a Megadrive and an PC in the same case.
Amstrad may have better to sell White MD clone as "GX500" instead. :D

I would have been perfectly fine with Blue too.
However, that was a question of physics - not of choice ;-)

You see the analogue joystick in the middle of the picture? I got the same, it does perfectly run with the CPC Plus.

I remember when the MegaPC came out, Amstrad and SEGA in one machine! By association it gave my CPC more credibility in the eyes of my Amiga owning friends! I wanted one badly at the time but in hindsight they were pretty underpowered machines.

Amstrad have been better to out a 16-bit computer using the Megadrive architecture instead of this hybrid computer or the CPC Plus... (with 3"1/2 drive and more memory, sure)

Ok, just for the hell of it I bought the Fire & Forget cartridge from him. I'll let you know how real it is when it gets here.

Bryce.

The Cartridge arrived at the weekend. It's real.
