Digital Archaeology: Codex (Floppy Disk) #9 (part 3)



A summary for those that haven’t been keeping up with this series:

I found a number of 5.25″ disks at a thrift store several years ago. I finally got around to acquiring a 5.25″ disk drive and extracting the contents a while back. Since then I have been posting the contents here.

Based on the contents, at least some of these disks were apparently once owned by someone named Connie who used to run the “Close Encounters” Special Interest Group (SIG) on Delphi in the mid 1980s.

A specific definition of this SIG was found in a document on one of the disks: “This SIG, known as ‘Close Encounters’, is a forum for the discussion of relationships that develop via computer services like the Source, CompuServe, and Delphi. Our primary emphasis is on the sexual aspects of those relationships.”

This service was text based and was accessed via whatever terminal program you used on your computer to dial in to Delphi’s servers. Many of these disks have forum messages, e-mails and chat session logs. All of this is pre-internet stuff and I don’t know if there are any archives in existence today of what was on Delphi in the 1980s. In any case, much of this stuff would have been private at the time and probably wouldn’t exist in such archives even if they existed.



This post includes the contents of DM1111.DOC which appears to have been created November 11th, 1985. Like the last post, there’s quite a bit in this one too. This is basically another dump of an e-mail session. Check out the ASCII map of Gainesville, Florida. I went to school there so I’m familiar with the area. I don’t think I ever would have had the patience to make that map though. The things that had to be done before Mapquest and Google Maps…

My DELICOUS Darling Connie,

I tried to post in 'Art' something like this before but was doing 
something wrong.

I am sending this to you again for you to KNOW !

AND if it isn't too personal then would you post it in the art gallery?

IF it is to Specific for the gallery then just post it in your heart

AND post the following version in the gallery.

I LOVE YOU !


Morthove,

Subj:   Repeating is good !

My Beloved Darling Connie,

Just as it is important to repeat "I LOVE YOU" I ran accross something
that perhaps I should repeat so here it is again My Love:

 
 
At first there was only a few words on a screen,
 
And even those were only occasionally seen.
 
Then I sent questions of panic on the phone.
 
Oh how could I have possibly known,
 
That after meeting face to face,
 
My heart would pound at such a pace,
 
And that a person who was once a curiousity,
 
Would become the focus of my very destiny.
 
 
 
Love and life have shown me what now must be my destiny,
 
And what endless love and happiness will soon be given to me.
 
But there are yet some commitments and decisions to be made,
 
And some pain and prices to be paid.
 
When all of that is finished and done,
 
A love lasting the rest of my life will be won.
 
I know you are feeling the pain of waiting,
 
But our life together will be worth the getting.
 
I cannot now be all you would have me to be,
 
But when that day comes you will have ALL of me!

With ALL My Love,

Rod

Honey,

I'm fine.  In fact, I did not get a chance to talk to John last night because
I spent an hour and a half talking to Peg.  I'll talk to John as soon as I
can .  He and
Peg are going to a movie and dinner somewhere on Thursday night and 
on Wednesday night he has school again.  And on Friday, Gladys will be
coming to dinner again, *IF* she accepted the invitation.  Peggy will be there
this time too.

sigh. never enough hours in the day!

I love you!!

Love,
Connie

P.S.  It was a horrible day at work today. hope you call soon!

Joey,

I'll try to have a job description ready for you by this weekend.  But you
have to understand that there are a lot of commands that even I am not
aware of.  As I found out about them, I notify you, John, and Rod.

Talk to you soon!

I'D LIKE TO DO IS DRAFT A LETTER IN
MY WORKSPACE AND SEND IT TO YOU VIA
"DMAIL" A LITTLE AT A TIME OVER A
FEW DAYS. THIS WAY, AT LEAST WE'LL
KNOW WHAT TO TALK ABOUT WHEN WE MEET
ONLINE FOR OUR PRIVATE CHAT. (BY THE
WAY, IS IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO

talking to you about whatever is bothering you as on e      e friend to antoh      her.

Subj:   Please help.

Dear Fellow SIG Members,
 
I would like to ask for your cooperation in a project I am in the final stages 
of and that is a survey or set of surveys that deal with who disagees most and 
who forgives and forgets the best, men or women.
 
This  is  the first set of several sets of surveys I have written  to  form  a 
research  base  for discussion in the saturday night conferences in  the  near 
future.
 
PLEASE  vote on this set of polls currently found in the "Polls" of the  Close 
Encounters  SIG,  Watch  for the following sets of polls,  AND watch  for  the 
resulting  discussions  which will,  with the approval of the Sig  Management, 
follow in the near future which will be based on the results of these sets  of 
polls and deal with what can cause a relationship to run "smooth" or "rough".
 
Thank you for your cooperation in my 'experiment' with these polls.
 
I  Look forward to getting to know all of you a little better and sharing with 
you in the SIG and it's conferences.
 
Sincerely,
 
RodM

Subj:   ref letter

My Beloved Darling Connie

In my letter to sig members I refer to future polls and for you info I am referi
ng~r to the following:
Future Polls:
When, in YOUR opinion, does a "disaggreement" become an "argument"?
 
What causes YOU to "argue" the quickest?
 
What do YOU do to prevent a "disaggreement" becoming an "argument"?
 
Once an "argument" starts what do YOU do to stop or end it?
 
What "sooths" you the best following an argument?
 
What do YOU do to sooth the other person following an argument?
 
How often do YOU and your Love "argue"?
 
What causes YOUR love of someone to, more than normal, 'grow' or 'glow'?
 
What do YOU do to cause another's love of you to 'grow' or 'glow'?
 
How often do YOU tell your Love "I LOVE YOU"?
 
How often does your Love tell you "I LOVE YOU"?
 
What do YOU use most often to SHOW your love?
 
In YOUR opinion, how well does 'words' convey love?
 
In YOUR opinion, how well does 'gifts' convey love?
 
In YOUR opinion, how well does 'actions' convey love?
 
In YOUR opinion, how well does 'sex' convey love?
 
What, more than anything else, makes YOU feel VERY deeply loved?
 
AND MORE !!!! (stay tuned to this channel for future additions and details)
 
I  LOVE  YOU  Connie  Buys,  more than words can tell,  more  than  gifts  can 
represent, more than actions can show, and more than sex can convey.
 
Since each or even all of these are not enough how do I send this to you?
 
I can only do one thing and that is to GIVE you my love  and, someday soon, as 
you  'unwrap'  this  gift and look inside this love you will find ALL  of  me, 
yours to have for the rest of our lives.
 
.... You're watching "The Telling of a Love" brought to you by Love and Life.

Subj:   Interesting mail

I got your mail yesterday.
Very interesting.  Now, what shall we ever do with them?
And while we're on the subject of doing, what if anything are we going to do
with the 'shopping service'?
I  can think of a number of things such as the usual magazines,
video tapes, etc.  But seriously, we ought to give it some
consideration.
also, we should think about some kind of dating service.
If I recall, weren't you going to look into that some time
ago?
What did you come up with?
let me know Love.       Kiss.   John

As we discussed,  the shooping                   pping service should be our next priority and
I;'ll               I'll gather as much info as I can on that.

The dating service is impossible until bi   ugs are worked out of Delphi.

Kisses and hugs.

Is there a time when we could all meet to discuss the sig, the direction it
could take, what to do about shopping service, etc.?

I'd like to hear from each of you on this as well as let you know what I've
thought about so far.

Thanks.

I personally don't think the age requirement is truly right.  Many young people
want to know what is happening in the adult world, and this SIG would be the ide
al non-personal place.
