    Now bear with me on this one... I didn't have a clue where to post this, I think it'd be just as at home in the Design and Graphics forum, Digital Video forum, or even the Mac Programming Forum.

    Beautiful... seriously.

    Wow. Really. I thought it'd be a joke, but it's really quite alluring. Oddly compelling, and very original.

    That was pretty cool.
    iGav, you always find these cool little things. I guess I should spend more time surfing and less time on MR.......nah! :cool:

    Very cool.

    It makes me want to go dig one of my ][e's out of the attic and fire it up.

    That's pretty neat!

    I know it's totally irrelevant, but this reminded me of an old programming language called "LOGO" used to draw shapes and stuff. I learned it in Grade 3.

    Was that that awful program where you had to move a turtle 'round the screen to draw lines? My old primary school tried to convince us all that it was a game, rather than an educational thing.

    The only other 'game' we had was The Incredible Machine - now that was brilliant! :D

    Wow - that was one of the best "retro-themed" videos I've seen. Thanks iGav!

    OMG! I've been trying to figure out the name of that program for the past couple months. LOGO, of course!

    Ha, they tried to tell us it was a game as well. Apple ][ memories...

    We also used to play Oregon Trail and Where in (insert noun here) is Carmen SanDiego.

    But anyway, the video was awesome!

    That video is really, really cool... and I even like the music :D gotta look around for that band.

    But what do they mean
    - have the lyrics been generated by a computer or are they just having fun with my naive mind?

    thanks for that iGav

    Wow!

    Doing anything on an Apple II is a feat! I had a IIsi and thought that was tough. :rolleyes:

    LOL, I remember ORegon Trail and Where in "(the hell)" is Carmen San Diego (as well called it) :rolleyes: .
    I used to play OT all the time when I was a kid. They had some cool fish game back then, too. I still have an apple II with Snooper Troopers and Lode Runner, though :)

    Nice vid... *memories*

    The glyphs for Apple's Macintosh "Big Brother" commercial were generated on an Apple ][.

    Damn cool video.

    Excerpts From The Diary Of Todd Zilla EP? I didn't realise it was out yet :confused:. Hmm, perhaps I'll preorder it on Amazon and try and get a prerelease on BitTorrent to tide me over until the 27th ;)
