Hi guys, this is Redmond Simonsen, former Creative Director of SPI,
telecommunicating with you through the courtesy of Gordon Walton.

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for the kind remarks
relative to my work at SPI. One of the great things about that
environment was the terrific rapport and communication we had with
our readers/gamers. It was really more like being a member of a
large, chummy club rather than a customer/seller relationship.
Losing contact with the many thousands of regular readers of the
three magazines was one of my biggest personal losses in the death
of SPI. I really appreciate that you remember my work and that you
miss it. I miss you all.

5.25's! Wow ! Actual floppies! I too have a few of those around....
Comment by Jim Werbaneth on September 20, 2009 at 3:42pm
I remember floppies. I still have a couple boxes of 5.25" disks, the low-capacity ones, on my desk, with a lot of old articles long since transferred to Zip disks and then DVD's.

I may still have some GEnie messages on floppies somewhere.

I left after they jacked up their prices.

Somewhere deep in the archives I have some old GEnie stuff, including my first disagreement with Mark P.

Possible TV show here . . .I Dream of Genie . . . Can't remember that much about GEnie, except that I used it a lot to get playtesters, etc.
