War Games



Next July 24th a special event marks the 25th Anniversary of the release of War Games, some theaters will have the 1983's movie.

I noticed that a second version was filmed, and after the anniversary will be available but the release is direct to DVD, I'm curious to watch how they actualized the technical material, because now you have wireless networks instead the dial access, or better security schemes to make invisible your network and also high-level encrypted, besides the monitor systems which are hard to break. Ok, Hollywood generally doesn't show reality, but some movies are spectacular (or simply stupid) to show the computer world, some times looks like magic ...

I miss the sound of a modem connecting to the internet, or a monocromatic screen with plain text (well, not so much this last because sometimes my X11 crash and you need to fix in the terminal mode).
