Ancient Days, Days of Yore

So we pass from poodle skirts to tie die to disco to...Atari? Yes, it is true. People like me are buying olf video game systems out of nostalgia.

I had a Commodore 64. I had tons of games (since they were easy to copy then) and a hot 1200 baud modem so I could dial the local BBSs and Q-link (nights, weekends and holidays, $5.00 an hour). I played games on it, wrote papers on it, composed poetry and drew pictures. I had Sim City on it -- oh my my my...

If only I hadn't given it and every damn bit of software away when I moved. Damn! i could clean up on e-Bay!
