Though this blog has been quite dead for some time now, I continue to collect old, forgotten, unloved games on the cheap. While I may not have time to play and write up many of them, I have wanted to at least post pictures of them on this blog along with a little text for search engines’ benefit.
This seems like as good a day as any to finally get rolling on this goal. I went to a large church rummage sale event today. They had a small area for electronics / software / games. In the pile of CD-ROMs I found mostly CD-ROM data collections (I picked up a wrapped copy of “The Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous Cookbook by Robin Leach” on CD-ROM). But I also found 3 issues of MacAddict demo CD-ROMs from 2003. I like collecting these because they tend to be jam packed with computer history, time capsules that the editors probably didn’t realize they were assembling.
