Fred relocated to Belgium where he lives with his husband. Their little bistro flopped and last I heard they are trying to launch a Kickstarter campaign to port Minecraft to the Tomy Tutor platform.

I let go of my dream of a career in Hollywood as the resurrected Shirley Hemphill. Two of my three surgeries went bad--really bad--in Mexico. Despite this I landed a couple of auditions for infomercials. Ultimately, however, I was happier being an average white male, which I expect to achieve after my fifth surgery next month.

One thing you might not know is that before Fred met the love of his life and confirmed his gayness to the world, he and I were planning a musical with Twistin' Ghost. Its working title was CARRIER LOST. The orchestra was to consist of 128 floppy drive heads. And get this: the audience seating would be arranged like a QWERTY keyboard from which the audience would participate by typing commands via jumping in their seats. We also were going to require every audience member to leave their cell phones ON so that we could we could chain-dial their numbers to generate sound effects, etc.

Alas, it was not to be. And so I raise my glass to all the veterans who fought and died here, who sacrificed their years and youth to keep the dream that was Amiga alive. There will never be another computer like her, nor a better band of brothers and faggots.

I'm back, six years after selling all my Amigas I bought a Sun Blade 2500 and realised how much I miss AmigaDOS. And decent hardware.

"How much for the A4000? I want to buy them, sell them to me" to plagiarise the Blues Brothers.

Only YOU could get me to post here after all these years, Shirl.

Naw baw baw bawww ....don't give up your dreams (cue uplifting music), Deeps.
You can always be Shirl. We can start a kickstarter for you. You can grow the afro, darls! Tee hee!

And I've found god, changed my ways, got fat, became Puerto Rican. Really. Look here...

I'm so glad to see you finally looking happy! I'm jealous. I almost regret giving up on my own Shirley...

This reunion is perfect timing for announcing a rare and exciting new game entry into the Hall of Light:
