Sometime in the last 2 weeks was the 20 year anniversary of Stars! AutoHost. For awhile in the late 1990's, there were 95+ games running on SAH at the same time.

Congrats Ron.
I think I played Stars! since 95 when it came as a demo game in a PC magazine CD.
I played against bots for 15 years till I finally found SAH and this time around, I could buy a serial using a credit card.
I think this was the first computer game I purchased online.
Been here for around 7 years.




I know my minefields.. but I'm a chaff sweeper.
I used to curse when I got stuck in traffic... till I realised I AM traffic.

Yeah, I remember the times when there was a waiting list and thus many games where hosted still the traditional way: a host genning the turns on his comp and then sending them out or rather back then, there were really good email clients and some tricks and batch files to fully automate it.

I'll take the autohost anniversary as an occasion to send, after all this years, my very first postcard to Ron *grin
