    Sounds like a quote from one of the old adventure games. The ones Keith and I actually remember!

    ...... i do not understand can you try asking again

    ...... i do not understand

    etc etc repeat until banging of head causes dislodging of the 16k ram pack and the whole computer to fry

    Re: It's coming....

    Ah but its history stretches back still further

    I first came across it as a kid on a pdp10 and later pdp11 systems. Wonder if it's ok to admit how erm well, dialling sequential local numbers on a 300baud (or was it 75) acoustic coupler modem on my parents phone line and hoping I could get away with some short calls.

    The first open line I found answered by a machine was a pdp10 with colossal cave running on the port. I reckon 77/78 ish. Naturally the idea of some short unnoticeable calls went to heck when I found an adventure game and I got well and truly rumbled

    For some strange reason, phone access was somewhat restricted after that but later a spectrum was obtained and I got to know my old friend "adventure" again.

    Then it was kinda lost again as we had the amazing (cough) graphics of the hobbit and so on.

    Flash forward another few years and I started university, searched the computer labs for the hackers room (there's always one somewhere with the best kit and 24*7 access) and what were they playing? Yep, the same old text only adventure but on the university's primeOS machine.

    Long history together me and that game
