Day Thirteen




Alongside my first blank floppy disk!

"Roland CA" (8.3 filenames = cramped names for things..) is written in scribbly pen at the top.

This disk is my first attempt at using a utility whose name I've long since forgotten, but the command was "Trans 0 Auto" , which would transfer a cassette to disk. (Transmat, maybe?... Yes, it was Transmat)
Run "RolandCA would then load "Roland in the Caves", instead of loading it from tape.
Woot!

This disk would then become home to my first ever experiments with coding, and .. Assuming the data's still there, my first little scraggles of coding should still be on that disk..

But will it be?!
I no longer have an Amstrad..


Some day..
Some day....

Meanwhile, the chocolate is Ginger, and it's not very gingery..
These chocolates definitely aren't as flavourful as the Beanies coffees...

Suggestion for next year, post a different floppy every day, along with what you think is on it, and the story behind it. Would be very interesting.

There aren't that many Amstrad disks to do that. They were bloody expensive buggers!!!

I could possibly do it with the Amiga disks, but the stories wouldn't be as interesting.

Wasn't having a go at you, seriously is interesting stuff to us nerds/geeks. Or even CDRs.

No, I'm being serious, the Amiga disks are either..
1. This is a cover disk from a magazine
2. This is a pirated game from X/Y/Z friend
or
3. This is another disk full of save files for Frontier : Elite 2.

My Amiga days weren't really all that productive, especially once I got my hands on Frontier.

Day Sixteen


Cinnamon againamon.
As varied as the labels are, these drinks really aren't all that different.
It's odd to suggest that White Chocolate has been my favourite, but that definitely seems to be the way it is.

Day Seventeen


Caramel Vanilla again?
Is that three of those, now?!
Hmmm..
I'm fairly sure it was supposed to be only 2 of each.

Day Nineteen


It's that "Double" again, today, and .. yeah, definitely headachy. Not sure if that's a chocolate migraine or not, but there's a noticeable blur in my left eye!!

Day Twenty One


Mint again.
Boooo...
Though it is a nice mint, I really thought there'd be more variety in this, if I'm honest.
Might as well have bought some Options sachets..
.. Do they still do those!? Haven't seen them for a while.

Kinda hopeful for a super-special xmassy flavour for day 24..
