Boo on you, who's ever desision it was to ruin shirt.woot.com


Well, not always designed ... the artists come from all over the world.

Now that the "made in" part has changed, I really don't need to impulse buy anymore, right, Woot?

So are the Men's the $10 offshore price - they went up to $12 to buy American, right?

Oh maybe they meant Central American - silly me...

DOS 2.0 introduced tree structured directories and hard disk support in 1983. In 1981 the prompt was unlikely to name a C drive and certainly wouldn't have a path component.

Question #2 - Will they park the drive before shipping the shirt? Would hate to suffer damage to the Landing Zone or "Chatter the Heads".

Loading TSRs high since the 80s....

Sometimes, just for old times' sake, I open the Cmd program in Windows just to see a C: prompt. I am a sad, aging nerd. :-)

I liked and wanted this design to win and I am buying the shirt, but now that I saw this, I wish the design would have incorporated the raster too. Would have looked really cool!

I never post in the comments but man, this is such a boring design. I'm really surprised to see all the love it's getting on here. Oh well. Different strokes, I guess. Enjoy your shirts, guys!

As a middle-aged IT nerd who got his start in the early 80's putting together XT and AT compatible PCs, this shirt brings back some great memories. In for one, thanks woot!

I love this shirt and I too hope there was 'parkall' command entered before shipping. Ah, the memories.

I've got drinking stories older than Word Perfect 5.1. But it was released in 1989.

Now Bank Street Writer... there was a program. And to stay completely topical, it was released in 1981.

I just want to warn everyone to start checking your bank statements. Shirt.woot charged me twice after a recent purchase. Even though their own records show that I only purchased one shirt and I only received one shirt, my bank statement shows they charged me twice for it. It just might be the last time I purchase anything from shirt.woot.

1981? That's recent.

How about a 1971 computer - PDP/8 with 32K of memory? OS/8 capture follows:

.R FRTS
*ADVENT$
Welcome to Adventure!! Would you like instructions?

> yes
Somewhere nearby is Colossal Cave, where others have found fortunes
in treasure and gold,though it is rumored that some who enter are never
seen again. Magic is said to work in the cave. I will be your eyes
and hands. Direct me with commands of 1 or 2 words. I should warn
you that I look at only the first four letters of each word,so you'll
have to enter "northeast" as "ne" to distinguish it from "north".
(Should you get stuck, type "help" for some general hints. For
information on how to end your adventure, etc., type "INFO".)
- - -
This program was originally developed by Willie Crowther. Most of
the features of the current program were added by Don Woods.
This version, for the PDP-8, was done by Rick Murphy. it is
based on a version for RT-11 done by Bob Supnik.

You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building.
Around you is a forest. A small stream flows out of the building and
down a gully.


> go east
You are inside a building, a well house for a large spring.

There are some keys on the ground here.

There is a shiny brass lamp nearby.

There is food here.

There is a bottle of water here.

> drink water
The bottle of water is now empty.

> eat food
Thank you, it was delicious!

> quit

Woot! Now 100+ woots for me!
That's 87 woots (Including Twelve Bats On Crack!), 12 Sellout.woots, 8 wine.woots and 4 kids.woots, and finally, 2 shirt.woots!

Maryland WOOT!
I would buy even if the design was poor (which it isn't!) because the designer is from Maryland. I can relate to the 1981 era.

As holds true for all number folks - the more the more...

Many is better than none.
