It's quite incredible how quickly certain types of technology are becoming obsolete.

I do have fond memories of receiving my demo 3.5 Amiga disks with my copy of ZERO (mayitrestinpeaceilovedthatmagazinesomuch) every month.

Great days.

Kids today will never know the simple joys and bitter defeats of a text adventure game.

I used to spend many lunchtimes at school on Mortello Tower. I was so pleased when I finally beat it...

At scholl in the mid 80's, we all had a couple of 5.25 floppies for Computer Studies. One had work, and the other had games for the after hours computer room fun.


I used to love those disks. I had loads of them with hundreds of games on for my BBC Micro computer. laugh.gif (As well as loads of games on cassette tape.) Ah, the nostalgia!

I used to have games on cassette for my Dad's ZX Spectrum.

Start loading, go and have a drink and a snack, come back. After living with 30+ minute loading times for a game like Jetpac, I never complain about CD or DVD loading times.

Ha. That horrific noise the cassettes made while loading, too.

I had Jetpac on disc; loaded in a fraction of the time. Spy Hunter, though, that was a whole other story!

Easiest game going - just get the bike and hang off the edge of the screen making puk-a-puk noises. I used to imagine the helicopter guys swearing at me for that exploit blush.gif.

Shocking behaviour! At least you didn't get caught by any killer guffs from the vehicles in front.

I liked the boaty bits.

Anyway, err, death 'n that...

Does it say something that the demise of a bit of plastic and metal gets a bigger response than the death of an actual person?

That's not me being sniffy, by the way. Anyway, there are still some uses for old floppy disks...

3 of the same family in little over a year.. Hadn't her brother died just a month ago.

Sad, feel quite sorry for the family to have to keep going through it in such a short time.

The BBC Micro noise was even worse than that, really high-pitched and awful.

Wow, that's sad. The poor family.

Lynne Redgrave was brilliant - such a loss for a family already hit by tragedy (her niece Natasha and brother Corin). She battled breast cancer for 7 years too. A very brave woman but she'll always be Yvonne to me.
