Just thought some of you might find this book useful. Covers old Windows and Dos games. From March 1995. Bought it a few weeks back. It can still be found on Amazon

Cheese-its & Rice!hehe

I don't know what computer that guy is on.

However, if it's one of those 8086 combined with 8087 IBM I'd love one hehe

I actually at one point saw a brand new in box one? hehe

It was like for twenty grand or so. Wow.

I think that would last me for two years where I stay now hehe

I don't know what online was like in 1995.

However I know what it was like in 1982-ish.

It was pretty cool.

Not much pretty like these days.

More download contents back then.

You could ask if you want.

However I remember being a kid at 8 or such.

I was on a Commodore 64.

I had these old modems.

The modems use Hayes commands.

You could hear it sound these high pitch tones when it connected.

They were super slow back then.

However you know them these days most likely by the term "BBS".

Bulletin Board Systems.

My cousins would only not even born yet when I was on in 1982.
