Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

Any of you guys remember the "DOS Turtle" screen graphic of late '80s computers? The little turtle that you programmed to create black and white line art?

If you remember the DOS Turtle like I do, it's time to grab your canes, pop in your dentures and start having the 4:00 dinner at Country Cookin'.

Hehe, I remember how, when loading something, the computer would either alternate between /, -, \, and | or constantly add periods to the end of some word, that was funny.
