Should I go see KRS-One?

KRS-One is touring. I've never heard his stuff, but I'm aware of his reputation. In 2012, is he still worth checking out live? Or is he a hollow shell of his former self, and I should stick to his studio releases from yesteryear?

I used to play an old DOS game in which you had to manuever a paper airplane through a house, with each room being a different level, each of which got progressively harder through the addition of obstacles. The plane, if I recall correctly, had a fixed rate of descent and could only rise by moving over a fan/vent. If you touched anything you died. It was an awesome combination of puzzle/action. Bonus points if you tell me how I can play it on a modern WinXP box.

Seeking recommendations: video games for old-school computers? (400Mz Win2K)

Games for a 400MHz PII Rage Pro Win2k boxen? Kids I know would like some video games (especially LANable ones), but their computers aren't so hot. Enemy Territory, BZFlag, and the like have hefty video requirements. Various "free game" resources aren't proving helpful; they're all about the latest&greatest. What's available for old-school systems?
