Quantum Link Remembered

Hey reader(s), None of us at videolamer (that I could get a hold of) recalls the Quantum Link service, although many of you no doubt remember its successor America On-Line with no small amount of fondness. This is a pretty darn cool article about the Quantum Link worthy of attention: https://www.tinytickle.co.uk/quantum-link/ We're not really in a state to reincarnate at the moment, but we do fondly recall the times we would write several articles a week, some of which were worth reading.

I got served!

I even tried out Phantasy Star 1 (a mistake, as I have grown soft and weak with puffball RPGs) at Jay's suggestion, and bought a Sega Saturn, a mod chip, and a few games as well. In fact, don't tell him, but with a bit more nudging I might start looking for a Dreamcast soon. ...
Fine, but this article then no more.
