My parents found these photos recently of me in my "office" in about 1984 or early 1985.

Nice! I especially like the irony of the speaker sitting on top of the disks! An here you are preserving the very bits on those disks... icon_razz.gif

Bah, that didn't hurt them! They weren't originals anyway.

Well, I take that back. I owned these originals then:

Fort Apocalypse
Turmoil
Summer Games
Zork III
CBM Assembler (crap!)

Originals, originals hmmm. Oh that's right, the ones I paid for! Yeah, I had some of those...Loco, Son of Blagger, The Quill and Illustrator. And about $70,000 Australian worth of, ahem, games on disk used only for review purposes. I reviewed the hell out of some of those games! At the time, the disk collection, if actually paid for at full retail, would have been worth more than my parent's house.

envy!

I never had my own tv, I always had to share the family TV. When I connect my Commodore my family hated me: D
