Significant Lifetime Accomplishments...
Well, being sick as a dog for days does have ONE advantage, I guess.

As I mentioned in my first LJ post, I am particularly fond of classic, "retro" video games.  And one that has always thwarted me, since I first played it on the Commodore 64 over *20* years ago, was The Sword of Fargoal.

Until now.
Sword of Fargoal

Today, I survived to the 20th level of the dungeon for the first time, found the Sword (which activates a timer), and escaped to the surface before the timer ran out.  It can, in fact, be done.

Granted, I was playing the Windows remake, not the true original on a Commodore emulator (both of which I have), but the remake is extremely true to the original.

I feel so... empty now.

Oh wait, that's the ear infection.  Maybe I better go lie down...

Current Emotional State: satisfied satisfied

Congratulations. Ah, for the heady days of being whipped by you at Mario Bros...
