Kudos To Commodore November 29, 2009Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
You know you’re old when you can reminisce about your first computer, and it was over twenty years ago.
LOL! Like any narcissist worth their salt, I was browsing the Sourdough’s archives and enjoying reading some of my old stuff, and discovered this old article, an ode to Commodore computers and the simple magnetism of geekery.
I hope you enjoy reading this little offering, and realize that even though it is due for some serious updating, it still expresses my wonderment at the joys of life on the internet, and the fun of “getting” geekery.
I even wish I had my old 128 back. It was the only computer that could play Castles of Dr. Creep, the absolute best game ever designed for computers. I don’t know why it has never been released in PC format, but if it ever was, I’m sure it would be just as popular as the original, provided it kept story line, characters, and events as close to the original as possible. A smoother video/updated visuals wouldn’t be bad. But too much departure from the original would kill the spontaneous fun of the game.
I KNOW I’m getting old now. Imagine an old lady reminiscing about a video game…
