How to equip the Xian Rock?

Recommended Posts

The faq / item faqs say if you use it as a missile weapon it returns to the wielder, but I can't seem to equip it.

Dikiyoba is like 85% sure that you can't actually equip it and it's a mistake in the walkthroughs. All it does is occasionally create ordinary rocks, which you can throw if so inclined.

Relle's walkthrough says XR is missile weapon but doesn't mention damage stats nor how Relle managed to equip it.

I sincerely feel like it Is a missle weapon, and it may or may not come back to you if you throw it, I thought that was a real feature of it.

Then thats the problem. You need to pick up an actual rock, put tape on it, write "The xian rock" on the tape, and chuck it as hard as you can at the computer screen, It will go through and hurt the nearest bad guy

Shooting, clobbering, tossing out windows, and otherwise smashing computer monitors in frustration at this consarned new fangled uncooperable gadgetry is a common thread in computer comedy.

 

I often complain that Windows is a pane in the glass.

Boy have you got that one right! The first computer I worked with was the size of two legal filing cabinets. And that was just the CPU! It took two 40 foot trailer vans to house all the rest of the equipment. This was the most cantankerist machine I've ever worked on.

Reminds me of a mousepad I saw several years ago now; it had a picture of some angry people ready to toss computer equipment out the window, and a caption that read, "Our office uses Windows."

Was it, by any chance, a UNIVAC? Or was it an ENIAC? Those are the only ones I can think of that were that big, except maybe some kind of mainframe computer.

It was an IBM 360/30 with a whopping 32Kb of core memory. Card reader/punch and chain printer took up the rest of one trailer, eight disk drive (256Kb each) and six tape drives took up the other trailer.

 

Oh, BTW, did I mention that this was the army's idea of 'Mobile Data Processing'? We actually did operate in a field environment.

With the small computers these days, why not just have the warfare general have all his information on his carrie on laptop.

That was back in 1980. What we now know as the PC had not been born yet. The Intel 8080 microprocessor had just been invented and only a few computers used it. Apple and Radio Shack were the only systems that you would recognize as a personal computer. The first Personal Computer (PC) was first available in 1982. The first portable PC (1983) looked like this

678px-Compaq_portable.jpg It was nowhere near being capable of handling the jobs that the 'mainframe' could do. The computer you are working on now is 500 times more powerful than the mainframe of that time, and the computers I work on now are at least 10 times more powerful than that. I have one database that is just shy of one terabyte in size; and that is tiny by comparison to many companies.

Laptop computers are currently being used in the field, but these are models that have been 'ruggedized' to withstand a lot of beating around.

I don't get how somthing as big as a laptop gets lost. It's much bigger than quite a few books, witch dont seem to get missplaced.

Ask cab companies how many laptops get left behind. Anything that can be lost will be lost.

 

There have been some government laptops lost to the embarrassment of the officials that have to admit it.

I don't know, maybe in a future war this stuff would come in handy for the japanese. Does everything I say have to be questioned?

 

EDIT: Btw sorry about the double post, never happened to me before.

I can assure you that I would have asked the same thing of anyone else who posted the same thing.

 

Seriously, an old laptop is going to be handy "in a future war"?

Well, if aliens ever attack, we're going to need Jeff Goldblum's macbook, aren't we?

Yes, Trenton, like that. In past wars, they have been made to look like brightly-colored toy airplanes or butterflies to entice children to pick them up, then scattered throughout the contryside by infiltrators. In our future war, you could expect them to look like smartphones and I-pads.

Certainly not *our* government. That would have been the *enemy*.

 

And we have always been at war with <insert enemy name here>.

Ok that was very undescriptive...Like saying "Hey, do you remember that one dude we met at that one place? you know at that time between midnight to 11:59 PM? Yeah you remember!"

Not your government. Not necessarily government at all. Governments are not the only entities that have armies, and armies aren't the only ones who plant bombs.

 

Edit: Trenton, read 1984 by George Orwell. Then come back.

Mine gets lost every time I stand up. When I had a cat you can't imagine the annoyance that caused him.
