Zork 1: The Great Underground Empire


For the next few posts I’m taking a break from the various web applications I have been using and looking at a few time wasters – games. I grew up in a time when the majority of games played were text-based adventure games. Some people will remember these games with a fondness, while those who never played them will probably be bored with them rather quickly.

Inflatable Football


Kevin Matthews, Michael MatthewsThis photo was taken at Speers Point Park in New South Wales, Australia, I believe. It would have been back in the 1970’s and shows my cousin Michael in the foreground and me in the background. It would appear as though a rather strange game of football is underway – being played with an inflateable ball of some description.

Once again the photo was salvaged from slides my grandfather had taken back in the day.
