Don't forget to set the IRQ!

God's, how old are we?

old enough to know the difference between extended and expanded memory, and how to tune your autoexec.bat and config.sys files to squeeze every ounce of power out of that DX^2 66 you can.

It's a good thing I just bought a whopping 4mb of memory for only $400!

Thank goodness I paid extra to get the computer with the 20MB HDD instead of the default 10MB HDD!

The hell will you EVER need 20MB on a hard drive? You got taken.

I'll get QEMM to help me get the most out of my memory.


ZouDave t1_j2l0ekc wrote

QEMM was some of the most must-have software that existed in the early 90s.

I worked at Software Etc. (what has now become GameStop) back in 1993-1997. One of the perks of working there was you could 'check out' software (usually games) for a week to try it, was a good way to learn about the software to help inform customers. We all had copies of everything we'd ever need from the store all for the cost of blank floppies (which we got at a discount). DOS 6.22, Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, QEMM, QModem Pro, and a few others, were always at the front of my disk case.

Damn ye!

Let Neptune strike ye dead Winslow! HAAARK! Hark Triton, hark! Bellow, bid our father the Sea King rise from the depths full foul in his fury! Black waves teeming with salt foam to smother this young mouth with pungent slime, to choke ye, engorging your organs til’ ye turn blue and bloated with bilge and brine and can scream no more -- only when he, crowned in cockle shells with slitherin’ tentacle tail and steaming beard take up his fell be-finned arm, his coral-tine trident screeches banshee-like in the tempest and plunges right through yer gullet, bursting ye -- a bulging bladder no more, but a blasted bloody film now and nothing for the harpies and the souls of dead sailors to peck and claw and feed upon only to be lapped up and swallowed by the infinite waters of the Dread Emperor himself -- forgotten to any man, to any time, forgotten to any god or devil, forgotten even to the sea, for any stuff for part of Winslow, even any scantling of your soul is Winslow no more, but is now itself the sea!

Is this based on Portland Head Light?


The_Luckiest t1_j2koiey wrote

As a Portland resident that was my immediate thought, even though it’s missing the building next to it. The cliffs there are pretty close though!


kjg1228 t1_j2olj9h wrote

Also a Portland Resident! Looks just like a shot from the north side of the lighthouse without the lighthouse keeper's cabin.

It was either "lighthouse" or "tall beach construction with a light source on top to guide ships".


vatsal_rp t1_j2ivacv wrote

how do you draw this?


FrankHiggins t1_j2jk7p8 wrote

Reminds me of the Portland Head Light up in Maine. We’ll done.


BRUISE_WILLIS t1_j2iq2w9 wrote

I like this one. One bird goes one way, and the other bird goes the other way.

One’s going east, and the other is going west. So what?

And this lighthouse is saying, “Whaddaya want from me?” The lighthouse’s got a nice coat of white paint. Beautiful. The bird, it looks the same.


ZouDave t1_j2j9q1c wrote

Nice work, what tool do you produce these with?


rabbiferret t1_j2k4f8o wrote

This looks like an interstitial loading scene that you'd get really excited for only to have before a really boring 'top down' view of a lighthouse that has a spartan layout, something like a spyglass in a chest, a frayed rope, and an oily rag. None of it really makes any sense, but nothing really is so far out of place that you questioned it.

Later, this same scene will appear with a dark blue sky and a yellow 'light beam'.

Threads like this let me remember that I have no original thoughts and I'm just coasting along this life like some automaton because I saw the title and thought "ha ill comment and ask why it's called lighthouse?" and I open it up and there are already like 15 other people doing the same thing.
