A new archeology era has started
I wanted to write this story in the Useless Thread but after all, it's worth talking about what it doesn't tell:

This is the first time that I heard or read about computer archeology. I don't mean the internet backtime machine, I mean real earth digging archeology just like you would discover an ancient Maya temple or something.
Some poeple take it as seriously as if it was the tomb of king who reigned 5000 ago.

It's interresting for me because it's like we are already in the future exploring an ancient civilisation. Certainly as time passes by there will be more and more digs to uncover reliques of what will be soon half a century and then one century old and considered as significant elements to rewrite history.
We can already see what historians will do about us in 100 or 200 years.

Of course you can search the web for 'E.T.' video games and you will find informnations yet nothing is better than poeple finding real stuffs 6 feets under the ground and start telling tales...
Yeah, PeeWee brought it up, right here last night. S5

I've never seen this one mentioned in any of the history books that I'VE ever read... Not even sure I want to watch the DOCUMENTARY in which this "valuable piece of history" (it was a CRAPPY game, what more do you need to know, really?) will be featured once it's released! S2

Oh, and the console on which this "valuable piece of history" can be PLAYED (if you should happen to come across one that isn't BROKEN S6 ), the Atari 2600..., that one was officially retired by Atari Corp. on January 1, 1992. I don't think there are that many still working consoles OUT THERE..., but you can play the crappy game ONLINE apparently (I'm not even going to give THAT one a go S13 ).
