My wonderful Meg kitty.

This is a letter I just wrote to a potentially bad email address for tech support at Vivendi Universal Studios (though it hasn't bounced yet).

I sent it there in lieu of finding an entry for Customer Service (their email contact form redirects you to a forum which has the email address in a comment).

A while ago, I had a chat with centaurk about King's Quest and the old Sierra On-Line games. Tonight, I decided that I should try to track down those games. Unfortunately, Sierra is a member of the IDSA.

Granted, I'm one to get a bit misty-eyed over an old computing find (like when I found a 1st edition K&R or a friend offered me a TRS-80 that a client of his had laying around), but games like King's Quest, Space Quest, Conquests of the Longbow, and Quest for Glory (or Hero's Quest as the first was known) were probably the most important part of my childhood.
