For this episode I contacted the daughter of the late programmer Duncan Scott. She and her mom got together and provided me with a lot of info that wasn't available online. I thank them very much and I thank you for listening.
Great episode. Never heard of it, but I know of Avalon Hill from their strategy games. Learned a lot and want to try it. It sounds interesting. A bonus to this episode, I got to listen to it in the great Atari dumping ground of Alamongordo. Sadly, no Atari here that I have found.
I've listened to most of the episode already. Another nice episode. By the way, I read about Sarah falling because of the ice. I hope she is doing well. Sorry I did not like the game. It was just too frustrating for me. Maybe I should give it another try at some point (with the trackball!).
Thank you guys! Don't feel bad for not liking the game Eugenio, everyone likes what they like! And Magoo, just curious why you were in Alamagordo?
For work, we usually go aboard a couple times a year for work, escape that nasty northern winter for a couple weeks. The two trips I got to do this year were here in Alamongordo and New Orleans. It is a nice perk to the job. Hopefully Sarah gets better, my wife fell like that a few years ago and then I had to build a proper driveway so the ice doesn't build up. That fall caused me shovelling OCD where I don't stop until it is all bare and ice free.
I don't pay attention to the news as a rule, so I tend to hear about which musical artists have died when I listen to your show. Rest in peace, Brother Dennis. One of the last truly great soul singers. I encourage anyone unfamiliar with the Temptations to listen to some of their seventies stuff, such as "Cloud Nine," "Shakey Ground" and of course "Ball of Confusion." Awesome stuff.
I know...if I keep posting here, I should just sign up instead of being a guest. I think I've caught your procrastination bug, Ferg!
