Pics @ 10:25 am

randbot mentioned something about one of the Enigmaversary photos being perhaps the earliest picture of dark_of_night. To outdo it, I present this exhibit. This photo was wedged into a book as a bookmark, and has probably been there for well over a decade. It fell out recently when Rebecca started rereading the book. It's like a weird time-capsule. Click on the image and check out the flickr notes. It's weird knowing that I still have some of that stuff.
In particular, I'll mention the poster thing in the upper right. It stirred a memory, but I couldn't quite grasp it. All I could see was a yin-yang symbol. Was it maybe something that came with Jordan Mechner's Karateka (which spawned Prince of Persia, which spawned many more Princes of Persia). No.... After locating the Mother of all Apple // game lists, I finally figured it out:

Moebius: The Orb of Celestial Harmony. I still have that headband, too.


Oh, and here's a more recent picture of Becca, taken by the_undertow at the wedding. Click for more bigness:

She's got the same cute smile! Aw!

ah those halcyon days of yester year.

the best part was the recent photo of you that appeared in the 'last photo in stream' box right beside the old photo of you for comparison. it was like you planned it or something.

I've been going through my old analog photos as well, looking for stuff to bring out with me. One of these days I need to buy a scanner so I can digitize some of that stuff -- it was a trip to look through it all again.

Moebius!!!! That game rocked! I still have it! And an Apple 2e to run it on, but unfortunately it doesn't want to load anymore. A shame! I remember guiding that little orb around to "prove" your character deserved more hit points or something; searching around behind houses to find extra stuff (and battles!); and going to the four spheres of the world. LOVED that game. Gotta check those disks again and see if I can coach them to life once more (I think Bard's Tale 2 and Wizardy 3 still work).

Ahhhh... I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers Moebius. The headband is actually now part of my very eclectic Arrrrr Pirate hat.
