A belated "You're getting older.. " message to the appropriate person

from all of us in Chez Perv.

Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death. I'm now 48, and I plan to die at 52, so we're really in the home stretch now.

Heh - So PD - was it a C-Net?? I used to tell those people to get a SFD

cause they were forever running out of drive space.

You weirdos and your spinning cursors...

The Amiga Archives?

Hm... I'm trying to recall if I contacted that BBS when I lived in Japan.

I am pretty sure I downloaded the Amiga version of Citadel (since I had no other way to get it), and had to deal with the international costs, etc. But that was back in the late 80s, and I can't recall where I went to get it.

I wish I had the money back then to set up networking from Japan. That would have been nice, for the year or two I lived there. I wanted to get the active computer club in the area to set up another BBS using Citadel (we already had one on FidoNET), but couldn't get enough people interested.

I tried to run Cit68k for awhile. It was a mess. I feel like Brent Barrett was the one driving the development of that - and he bitched incessantly about how difficult it was to program on the Amiga and for 68000 CPUs. He ended up releasing Novu 86 for x86 machines instead, and that is what I ran mostly, I recall.

I thought the developer of Cit68k was Tony Preston.

Yeah, I saw Tony Preston's name on the Amiga stuff. I don't recall a Brent Barrett. But then, who knows what was really going on, eh?

Don't quote me.... I was coming down off of a high that lasted from 1983 until 1986 when I got active on the BBS scene - so my memories are a little hazy. 

I know Brent did Novucivitus (Novu86) and that he was an Atari guy, and he probably did STadel - and that he bitched about 68k development. That much I'm pretty sure of. 

Beyond that... I may be unreliable.

They didn't suck. I mean, the come-down was hell... But I managed to cram an entire adult lifetime of experience between 1984 and 1990. 

Stumbling onto Q-Link, and then C-64 Warez BBSes, and then Citadel, prepared me for a career in IT right as the boom was coming on, too - so I ended up surprising a lot of teachers and other adults who were certain I was going to end up in prison.
