I don’t know where I’m going with this

I save everything. Almost everything.

I have almost all of the 3.5″ diskettes that I used to store all of my work. I even have some of the 5.25″ floppies that I used when I was in grade school.

Everyone who remembers the PET computer, raise their hand. Everyone who was bribed into doing something with a promise of a new floppy disk drive for their Commodore 64, raise their other hand. Everyone who remembers playing Ultima IV and trying to quit and save with everything you possibly could just before entering the Abyss, then spend the next eight to ten hours of your life trying to win the game (because you couldn’t quit and save in the Abyss, remember?), take both those hands that you just put in the air and smack yourself around the head with them.  And not because you are stupid. Just to see what other memories you can jog loose.

This is my third post about AD&D and I don’t know why. Maybe the whole thing with Gygaz dying had a larger effect on me than I first thought. Because at odd moments in the day I find myself not reminiscing, but asking myself ‘When you wrote that, where did you put it?’. And the more I look, the more I find. Found an old friend in the bargain, though I wasn’t looking, which makes finding him all the better.

And in light of that reacquaitance, I have a little copy and paste for him to check out.

I found everything but the magic Ring of Jumping, man. And I looked. If I could only get that 3.25″ disk drive hooked up, I might be able to grab all of the old files. But this is what I have for now. And somehow, the stats just don’t capture it all. And I don’t remember him being called Atreus…
