It’s the Simple Things..

WAY back in July the family went to The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art.  We had a great time and met poetry artist Zach Houston. I blogged about it HERE.

The monkey's fell in love with that old technology.. The Typewriter. 

Monday night at the auction I found 2 working electric typewriters for only $6.00 for BOTH of them.

Here's #2's good friend and of course, #2.  Even they enjoy time with the typewriter.

The friend was typing draft letters… and if you know him, that is totally what he would do.  Any idea what #2 was typing?

HTML or "computer language"


to quote Weird Al in the song "White and Nerdy"

I got a business doing websites
When my friends need some code who do they call?
I do HTML for them all
Even made a homepage for my dog!

#4 loves it.  You've never seen a kid love a typewriter more than this one.  If I can stand the constant typing.. it will be the best $6.00 I ever spent

Strange eBay Question of the Day…

I’m selling an Advanced Dungeon and Dragons Computer Game called the Death Knights of Krynn. It’s an older game, and is on a floppy disk.

Here’s the question:

I have two copies of this game that I bought on ebay for the PC

Unfortunately I cannot get the 5-1/4" disks to read!

If I let you sell one copy or just paid you, could you make me a cd with it?

Same situation with Champions of Krynn…

I already have Dark Queen of Krynn on CD from the 5 game Gold Box, but if you have it, I wouldn’t mind a backup copy… Again, I have the disks for it and am willing to let you sell them. (I haven’t bothered to get set up as a sell, although since I got Paypal, I might… But frankly, I’d prefer to have someone else sell them. I can only ebay effectively at the library for the moment.

Do you know if these games will play on a laptop?

I believe he’s asking me to make a copy of a game.. and sell his.. What do you think?
