Good point! Chocolate covered strawberries along with the champagne...
Ooooohhhh, you take me back to my college days, @M77 !! I fell in with a hardcore group of the best guys ever who were hardcore builders, coders, & gamers. I miss those days. The first time I got my hands on a Commodore 64 was my freshman year at university, lol! Playing those old school DOS games like 3-Demon took up a lot of hours we should have spent studying, but I wouldn't trade all that fun for anything!@tychoAmusingly: video games. I play them a lot. Too much. But at least I still get a good dose of exercise every day so as to even out the chair time.
Mind you, I just signed up for Medicare, so I'm not playing these as a teenager. But being that age means that I was around when video games were invented. At college in the mid-70s I had access to a computer system networked across entire continents ("PLATO") that had graphics terminals and was more than 10 years ahead of its time (the first Macintosh was a decade away). We had email, messaging and serious gaming. I still access a virtual clone of that pre-Cray supercomputer mainframe that runs as an app on some guys PC in California.
Having played for so long I'm pretty good for an old dude. I played one tank battle game for years and was on a ranked Russian team. Our "captain" was bi-lingual and would cross-translate for me the curses from the other players.
Chocolate and sweets? Yeah, those too.
Remember the Commodore Vic 20, and 64? Also the Pet computers?
