Nerd content and
cringe since 1999

Feeling stupid is refreshing.

In unrelated news, it was only yesterday, after nearly a year, that the wordplay in the title Cycle-Op dawned on me, when it was spelled out during the Meteoriks nominees revelation gala.

I mean… the title screen might have been a hint! :)

The other day, I realized the trusty old Amiga file manager “CLImate” is pronounced like, well, climate. To us, as German teenagers in 1989, it has always been “C-L-I mate”, pronounced “tseh el eeh mate”…

I learned this when binge-reading some of the numerous insightful and charming articles at and ended up at util disks. (Warning: You will get stuck on that site for hours if you love retro and Amiga stuff!)
