    I remember one of the more popular bits of w4r3z at Atari copyfests (I mean, User Group meetings) being the page-flipped smurfsex animation. Four frames of some little blue critter doing a little blue female critter doggy-style. uNF!

    I actually played Don Quixote in a school play, I wonder if that left he scarred. More misadventures Sancho!

    If anyone ever drives through Palm Springs CA and sees all those freakin' windmills, I used to be the guy responsible for slaying them.

    You used to be Don Quichotte (Don Quixote)?

    If anyone ever drives through Palm Springs CA and sees all those freakin' windmills, I used to be the guy responsible for reading their power meters and then uploading the data to Edison for payment. The computer we used for that? It was the best at the time, an Atari 800! (later replaced by the Epson QX-10).

    Skroo, I don't think it means your getting old. It's just means the world is moving fast and constantly changing in the way we do things.

    Besides, I still use a typewriter at times, and I own a record player and the LP's to go with it. Oh, and old 45's too.

    Kids, for a idea of what this was like: 300 baud is about the screen speed of David's computer in Wargames.

    How old do we have to be before we can get crochety about ANSI pr0n?

    You young whippersnappers got it made today!
    yeap, this was quite a quantum leap in technology!
    the enthusiasm in upgrading from 1200 baud to 2400 baud - you could actually hear the upgrade ;).
