in reply to Name Space

Just a quick blast-from-the-past for anyone who owned a C64 and was on Compunet (long before this new-fangled academic Berners-Lee nonsense - harumph), when Xyzz nicks were all the rage. Tony Crowther was Ratt, Rob Hubbard was Robb, there was Bogg, Jonn etc...I just added an extra 'n' to my real name and it's been stuck there for over 20 years. A promise of a ++ goes to anyone who's still got the *original* Ratt+Benn demo :)
cheers, Ben(n).
PS. Hey - what a great node! ++George

    I'll give you half.

    Though I have fond memories of playing the original Ultima on a C64 at a friend's house, I never personally owned one. However, I was a Compunet subscriber around '85 or so, to an extent, but mostly stuck to local BBS's at the time.

    Given that...pop quiz...were you active on FidoNet?

    :)
