Oh yeah...

Remember this?  Most of the photos are ineligible, because I took them with a film camera (or my point and shoot digital), and as such, don't have the EXIF data (Aperture, Shutter Speed, Lens Type) anymore (the point and shoot didn't record some stuff with the image, apparently).

[Insert something rude here]

EDIT: It seems they updated their plug in YESTERDAY (today is the deadline) in order to allow for scanned negatives. Oy.

LOAD "*" ,8,1

So I've known for a while that there's a Commodore 64 emulator out there.  What I just found out today, though, is that someone got a hold of the Quantum Link server software and ported it to run on a "real" computer.  So you can run the emulator, run the image of the Q-Link disk, and actually log into the old system.

This is... mind boggling.

I'm 36, that's no secret.  What alot of people don't know is that I've had "email" since I was 14 because of Quantum Link and the whole Commodore "online" community.  This is just ridiculously giddymaking for me.  I even set back up my original screen name "Hang11" which was also the license plate number on my first car.  It meant "Surf Naked!"  I was such an awesome teenager, wasn't I?

Freaking out on the inside

What a day, what a day...

Started out craptacular.

But thanks to the magic of the internets, and mostly to merlinofchaosTurk and esmerelCarla (the awesomest people in the UNIVERSE), it's turning out pretty damn good.  Actually, better than damn good.

By the way, got the photos uploaded without aperture and lens info.  Whew.
