while i agree... i'm also as old school as PEW and i don't agree to a point or 
several, actually... one of those being why is the beep action so looked down on 
in the *nix environment? games started off with only the MB speaker as the way 
of sounding  actions and activities... so what's the bitch problem? is everyone 
these days so freakin' spoilt by traditional sound card stuff that they refuse 
to recognize traditional MB speaker sounds? i mean geez, does the standard 
(k)ubuntu solitaire really use the sound card when sounds are necessary? or the 
oriental tile games? or the many other single player local console games?

so please tell me why today's folk are so jaundiced to the traditional methods 
of game writing... surely it isn't due to ignorance... maybe it is due to too 
much perceived character of their own person?? i dunno... but it is rather ugly, 
distant and hateful...
