Presumably it is still possible to manually install an OXP the old-fashioned way, if I can still find a download for it somewhere. Just drop it in the addons folder then hold shift while loading the game, right?
Right (but the shift-start shouldn't be needed)! And welcome back!

Does Dave Bowman become immortal? It's been a long time since I read the other Odyssey novels.

It was the "written word" I was trying to capture.
The "written word", eh? Fan Fiction, perhaps? In which case: Asteroids - an example here.

I guess they just couldn't compete with the endless stream of surreal comedy coming out of the Vatican. They couldn't top the script-writing they did for the Monty Python team.
That deserves another snigger!

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Childhood's End is correct. The Pink Floyd connection is the track of the same name from their album Obscured by Clouds.

Okay, an easy one: which novel links Led Zeppelin to one of the great sci-fi authors?

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

How about some military sci-fi, spud? Hammer's Slammers, for example. Or the Honor Harrington series, perhaps?

As for the upgrade of Windows 7 to Windows 10 that is an entirely other issue which is best dealt with on an individual basis.
