Default Good Morning Dos people

Goodmorning at everybody.
I'm an old user of the early era PCs, i started from the very first home computers like Vic 20, Commodore 64, MSX, Intellivision and my first 286 pc passing little by little to 286 and the most performant 486dx2.
I lived the beauty of the "not easy accessible internet" times, the analog modems with 2 hours to download 2Mb (and the very expensive bills about it), the passage from tape cassettes to floppy, 5"floppy to 3", from floppy to CDs, CDs to DVD (as well from VHS to DVD) .
All my father family lived the boom of the home computers and games (every uncle had a C64 at their home or a console like SEGA MEGADRIVE/GENEIS) and all those games reminds me a lot about those times.
It's easy to spot and remember a game title from just an image or the music.
I Live in Europe and i really like to talk about our passion.

Also the beauty of get stucked on a graphic adventure when you haven't the walk/instructions on internet and spend the holidays in order to figure out how to pass over some obstacles (the only games solution accessible were on magazines).

I am afraid, it's not very alive place to do game conversations, but you always can try. Actually, there are couple of usuals who will keep the talk - but you must start it before.

Most of my DOS talks now at the eXoDOS Discord. It's quite lively here, even if not very many people around.

thank you for your welcome and your kind words and worries.
It's so sad that there's not so much people around anymore (i suppose most of people just try to retrieve their old abandon games and that's all).

Thank you also for the discord server, i will for sure give it a check when i will be able to
