Heh! I regular subscriber of rec.games.video.arcade.collectors made that auction... He stated:

>It's sort of a pick-it-up-yourself deal, it's fragile enough that I
>don't want to try to do it myself, besides I'm achy enough >from ... uh... shoveling the driveway, yeah that's the ticket ;-)

after someone asked if he had overnight shipping available. Laff.

Mmmm...I have to disagree there. Would you rather play an AMOS game compiled or interpreted. (Nevermind that you don't want to play an AMOS game at all, let's assume you DO!)

Darn it, there goes that quote again! Why don't you make it so that everytime a commercial uses that slogan they pay you lots of royalties for it?

Hmmm... i wouldn't relate compiled/interpreted with HTML/PDF but yes, I would preffer the compiled AMOS suffering

In any case, everybody knows you eat PDFs for breakfast . I've got to get my ass at doing some sort of PDF magazine thingy...

I think PDF's are one of the coolest formats ever created on a computer! I have my templates for Amiga PoV, which should get some action (fingers crossed) come January. Awaiting Cody's post to EAB soliciting a team. In the meantime, I am using PDF's to properly pitch "Cutting Edge", a local music zine for the paper I work for. After I have it completed (later in the week), I'll drop you off a copy and you can let me know what you think.

I'd be delighted to check out a copy of the PDFzine you are working on!

Maybe someone thought under all that snow was a real stand up TRON. (yes there really was one)

It looks to me like a screen and coin door put into a pile of snow.
