Would you believe it...

Would you believe it if I told you...

...that I used to read these books and that's how I learnt the basics of computers?

...that I got conned into buying these stupid books many years ago because of my fascination for the cosmos?


...that I used to play these games? I'm not embarrassed to say that Mechwarrior kicks ass!

hello! Were you just sitting in your study, did a little swivel on your chair, and noticed your collection? I must say the "idiot guide's to" series continues to be quite popular, myself guilty of being an eejit twice.

Noticed your games seemed to be all "originals" in very nice boxes. That's a rarity in my neck of the woods. There's a general concensus that it'll take at least another generation to appreciate that piracy is baaaaaddddd!!!

yvy said...

aiyoo...i'm so the perasan lar!! lol :P

eerrhh.....u're right, i langsung dunno wat games these are!

Simple American said...

I loved playing all of those games too. Still playing some of them, expecially Spycraft.

Neo said...

You are serious? Reading the idiot's book makes you an idiot. Read the Mastering series instead... :)

Cheers.

Hey, can make alot of money ler..... lol

suituapui said...

I also have ONE of those "idiot" books...for grammar and writing. Don't be deceive by the name;thye're very well-written and they can make something as boring as grammar interesting! Never read any books or got any tutoring on computers...but hey! For someone my age, I think I'm doing just great! Try and try...cannot try again!

Wuching said...
