    I had got win95 to install on the pi but it would only run in safe mode even after following the many win95 guides for dosbox but the Pi version is dosbox doesn't entirely behave the same as x86 platforms. So, hence the gba cheat heh

    Wing Commander series on the Raspberry Pi

    Behold the Beautiful Blue Box (July 10, 2010)

    The box is massive compared to anything else I have on my shelf currently. I have always wanted a set of WC fighter blueprints. No one makes anything with this much detail anymore it seems. The wife offered to laminate them for me which would avoid anything crushing like TheFraix mold...

    Ferrets hors d'oeuvres and appetizers

    The only reason I like the original ferret is because a battle seems more intense when your computer systems are blowing up all around you. These variants look very cool though

    Wing Commander Goes Boom the Best (May 31, 2010)
