Yes, I have Zoom installed. Problem was that my HHGTTG disks were 5.25s, and that would be the one piece of retro equipment I don't have for my big Mac. So, I've been *ahem* casting about for the back up copy. 8-) Turns out that BBC4 has HHGTTG up and running from the 20th anniversary, with saving disabled apparently though. Flipping through these disks, I found a few other gems. I'm not sure I ever finished Witness. And Reflex deserved better than to be abandonware. I really have Parallels and various entirely legit copies of OS's hanging around, so it may be entertaining to get these up and running again. But then I thought building a Hackintosh was entertaining, so I'm amused by this sort of thing. Am I remembering correctly that z-machine was alot like LISP? Now there's a language I haven't used in 20 years. That also might be fun to revisit. 8-)

Talk about roots. The kid found my old box for Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The game obviously, not the books. It's missing the glasses and the fluff, BTW, but otherwise intact. Explanations ensued, much searching of the internetz and she's now busy playing hhgttg via a site that has it running, and I'm trying to figure out if I have an OS that goes back far enough and will still run in Parallels to run it standalone here. Just remember...don't forget your towel.
