  • Digital Archaeology: Codex (Floppy Disk) #9 (part 5)



    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 LOSTDA.DOC. This is an STD survey. I’m not sure how or if it was incorporated into the ‘Close Encounters’ SIG on Delphi.

    See the previous post here.

                                    November 11, 1985
    Hi Stu,
            Now to write a real letter.
            It is cold and wet here today.  The kids are
    home from school and in the house.  I let them watch
    Superman on the VCR and afterwards had difficulties 
    between Scott and Brian - evidently there was name calling
    involved and Brian did not appreciate what Scott was
    calling him.  When he came up to tell me I called
    Scott up to ask him about it.  When he refused to come
    after the first tentative calls I raised my voice
    higher and higher still .
    When he still did not come I went out into the hall
    and called yet again.  This time he responded but
    it was too late.  I guess with the TV on he could
    not hear me and as I am more important than the TV
    I told him his punishment for not coming was losing
    the next movie.  He is now throwing a fit in his
    bed.  He sounds like a wild animal.  If he had come
    up when I called him the first or second times he 
    would not be losing the show, but since he cannot hear
    if he is in front of the TV than he will not be in front
    of the TV right now.
            I'm sorry about tonight.  I must go out to the
    Wake though as it is for a close family friend as I said.
    He has been sick with Cancer for some time and finally
    went in his sleep.  I do not know when I will get back
    in tonight and tomorrow is an early morning - school
    again!! 
    (       I will look for mail from you tonight when I get
    online to see if you had an alternative idea for time.
    If not I will assume that I should call you Wednesday at
    8:10 as usual.) Taken out of letter
            I talked with Connie for awhile yesterday.  She
    seems to be doing well.  Her company is moving in the
    beginning of the year so she might not be able to visit
    us right after Christmas.    Oh well, who knows?
    Something may work out.
            I will be interested to find out how Gladys reacted
    to Friday night.  I just hope John remembers what I told him
    about not telling her my feelings.  I am not sure he can do
    that, as he has not been great at it in the past, but there
    is always a first time.   I wonder if she will come
    back again.  John says he hopes she will.  Also, he gives
    more chances for her coming when I am not here as opposed to
    when I am here.  Oh well, is just as well I guess.  As I've
    said before, I do not want to make the same mistakes I made
    before.  But, it is equally hard for me to stay seperate from
    someone who is intimate with my family.   That does not mean we should be 'soul-mates',
    but friendly helps in these situations I have found.  When there
    is no friendship it gets very awkward.
            I know you do not feel that way.  You have no want
    or intentions of becoming friends with John.  It is a shame
    in a way, but does not matter in the long run.  I am not
    the same type of person as you.  I get involved with people -
    give of myself - just consider the Susan's, Joannies', Connies',
    and Pnut's of life.  I want to help people.  I do not like to
    feel constraints or restrictions on relationships.  I like to
    feel free to talk - to be myself - to be silly, serious, happy,
    sad, left alone when I need to be, treated like an equal.  All
    these things are rights we all have.  I do not like to feel as
    if someone is trying to change or control me.  When I do things
    I may consider whether or not they will affect others - and how
    they will - but for the most part I must consider how they affect
    me - Margaret Edith Catherine Kast Yerger.  I do not do things
    to defy others - that is not my way.  I may do things to please
    others, but not if it is not in my best interests to do so.
            I guess this all seems to be leading up to something, 
    well, I guess it is. 
            I do not think I will be seeing you again.  It is not from
    lack of love - I *do* love you still - but it is from committment
    here and the feeling that in the long run I will not be happier with
    you than I am now.  We have wonderful times together, filled with
    happiness, friendship, adventure, love, passion, fun, closeness ...
    But my future lies with John and my children.  I fool myself a lot
    in thinking of our relationship as something seperate from these.
    It is - but not entirely.  You would have me leave John for you -
    whether or not the kids came along is irrelevent - maybe not
    today or tomorrow, but sometime in the near future.  This relation-
    ship that we have now cannot continue as it is, it is not fair to
    John, Judi, or the kids.  It will only get more demanding of us and
    our time.  We may want more and more time together at their expense.
    I do not wish to take that time away from them.  I went into my
    marriage with my eyes open - though very young - and determined to
    make mine work.  I think the timing of the wedding may have been
    wrong but the marriage is not.  Along with the problems is a very
    deep committment to one another.  I cannot say what the future will
    bring John and I, maybe someday he will get tired of me, I do not
    think so, but we have decided to work it out together.  There will
    be days I will probably curse my decision and hurt inside for what
    may have been, but there will be more days when I know what I did
    was right for all concerned.
            Everything I have said to you was said from the heart.  I
    do love you.  I miss you and will dreadfully for a long time.  My
    fantasies of us together will never be forgotten.  Noone else will
    have the part of me I gave to you.  I tied my tubes for us - and so
    that John would not have to raise someone else's child.  
    I will remember you always Stuart.  You are a very special man,
    one who has given me so much, shown me so much, taught me about
    life and myself and yourself.  It's not only the places you've
    taken me, but the feelings you've given me that will remain with
    me always.
            This is never easy.  I could give you excuse after excuse
    for breaking up - unfairness, being so many miles apart, frustrations,
    fears and angers - but in all honesty I can only say that though
    we have talked about a future of Peg & Stu it is not a future I
    want to live with.  When we are locked in love's embrace it sounds
    like Heaven.  It is easy to imagine such a time coming to pass and
    my being acceptable towards it - but I do not want to be controlled
    by Stuart for the rest of my life.  I want to live and grow in my
    own way, make my own mistakes, control who I talk with or deal with
    by myself, essentially be a person in my own rights.
            I honestly think you see in me what you want to see, and
    you are trying to create that person from me.  When I tried to 
    tell you I felt uncomfortable in some of the places you took me -
    trying to show me a good time - a taste of class - you did not
    understand.  When I hurt or am uptight, I do not want to be touched.
    When I feel that I am being told what to do I react like a child
    and want to run free, rebel.  I do not usually do those things, 
    usually resentment builds up inside of me and comes out at other
    times.
            Enough.
            Stu - my Love - take care of you for us all - for Judi, Randy,
    Paula, Debbie, and least of all for Me.  I love you.  I will never
    let another get as close to me as you did .  I
    cannot afford to do that.  It will hurt to let you go - more than
    you can imagine - but do so I must.
    
    Sending you one last Kiss and memories of morning Lisses
    
    With My Love,
    
    Peggy

  • 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…

    See the previous post here.

    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 !

    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!

    HI CONNIE! EXAM'S OVER AND IT WENT WELL THANK GOODNESS. THIS NOTE'S ABOUT OUR
    UPCOMING TALK (IF YOU'RE STILL INTERESTED).
    I THOUGHT THAT SINCE MY SITUATION IS
    FAIRLY COMPLEX, IT MIGHT MAKE SENSE
    FOR ME TO TRY TO EXPLAIN SOME OF IT
    TO YOU BEFORE WE TALK ONLINE. WHAT
    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
    ACCESS A FILE THAT I CREATE IN MY
    WORKSPACE? IF SO, THAT MIGHT SAVE
    SOME TIME. (PLEASE SEE NEXT MESSAGE:
    OURTALK-2, SINCE I'M AFRAID THIS
    MIGHT BE GETTING TOO LONG). . .

    I'M BACK-- DO YOU SEE THE FIRST                        DID YOU SEE THE FIRST MESSAGE?
    JUST TO CONTINUE BRIEFLY, DO YOU THINK
    WHAT I'VE SUGGESTED IS REASONABLE?
    I'LL START COLLECTING MY THOUGHTS.
    FINAL NOTE:  YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES THIS
    SITUATION I'M IN REALLL Y GETS ME DOWN,
    MES THINGS GO WELL AND I KINBD                                                           WELL AND I START TO FEEL GOOD.  THIS MAY BE BAD NEWS,  
    THOUGH, AS I COULD JUST AS EASILY 
    FALL INTO DESPAIR AGAIN THE NEXT DAY.

    HI CONNIE! EXAM'S OVER AND IT WENT WELL THANK GOODNESS. THIS NOTE'S ABOUT OUR
    UPCOMING TALK (IF YOU'RE STILL INTERESTED).
    I THOUGHT THAT SINCE MY SITUATION IS
    FAIRLY COMPLEX, IT MIGHT MAKE SENSE
    FOR ME TO TRY TO EXPLAIN SOME OF IT
    TO YOU BEFORE WE TALK ONLINE. WHAT
    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
    ACCESS A FILE THAT I CREATE IN MY
    WORKSPACE? IF SO, THAT MIGHT SAVE
    SOME TIME. (PLEASE SEE NEXT MESSAGE:
    OURTALK-2, SINCE I'M AFRAID THIS
    MIGHT BE GETTING TOO LONG). . .

    I'M BACK-- DO YOU SEE THE FIRST                        DID YOU SEE THE FIRST MESSAGE?
    JUST TO CONTINUE BRIEFLY, DO YOU THINK
    WHAT I'VE SUGGESTED IS REASONABLE?
    I'LL START COLLECTING MY THOUGHTS.
    FINAL NOTE:  YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES THIS
    SITUATION I'M IN REALLL Y GETS ME DOWN,
    MES THINGS GO WELL AND I KINBD                                                           WELL AND I START TO FEEL GOOD.  THIS MAY BE BAD NEWS,  
    THOUGH, AS I COULD JUST AS EASILY 
    FALL INTO DESPAIR AGAIN THE NEXT DAY.
    I'M SAYING THIS BECAUSE THE LAST FEW
    DAYS HAVE BEEN GOOD, AND UNFORTUNATELY
    I7 'M  'M HAPPY ABOUT IT.  WELL, THAT'S IT

    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

    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.
     
    .... Remember!.... Only Love can give you such warmth and Life such adventure!

    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.

    Subj:   sig stuff
    
    Honey,
    
    I'm going to ask you to do me a big favor but if for some reason you can't do it
    then please just let me know.
    
    In the next message to you, I am going to send you a complete list of sig
    members as of this morning <11/10/85>.
    
    I'd like you to use an associate account of mine known as AMANDA.  The password
    is the same as for this account.
    
    I'd like you to capture to disk each profile that's available from the main
    Peoplenet 
    for each person on this list.
    
    I don't need this done within any particular time frame, just when you have
    the time.  I want you to use my associate account and /gag it when you're
    on line because that account never recieves a bill because it's an associate
    of this   Since I
    could be back-billed at any time for usage, I would prefer you only use it
    during the lower rate times.
    
    I want to print out the profiles too but I can do that here after you've
    captured them.
    
    It's a lot of time consuming work as the list is a long one, but it's
    something you obviously like to do and something I find very boring 
    
    Do you mind doing this? 
    
    I love you!!!
    
    Love,
    Connie

    TPUG is the Toronto Pet Users Group.  It is also an invisible s SIG here on
    DELPHI.  If you were not in that SIG then they must be defaulting to the
    DEP LPHI main conference area.  This would explain why I can see you listed in  as
    available in conference and not when I do a "Who's on from the SIG main menu.

    This is a new SIG tah  hat is based in Toronto and has some 16000+ members in
    Canada.  BTW Pet in Canada is Comodore in the US.  They are all new to the
    telecommunications field and I have been doing a bit of handholding/babysitting

    Hi Tom!
    
    I got both your mail messages.  I think that putting your thoughts in writing
    in dmail to me first is a good idea.
    
    But please do keep in mind that I am not a "professional" - that I will be
    talking to you about whatever is bothering you as one friend to anther.
    
    
    
    Take Care!
    
    Talk Soon!

    Subj:   RE: Interesting mail
    
    As we discussed,  the shopping service should be our next priority and
    I'll gather as much info as I can on that.
    
    The dating service is impossible until bugs are worked out of Delphi.
    
    Kisses and hugs.
    
    Love,
    Connei

    Thank you for your comments. However, after much discussion, the sig members
    have voted and the age restriction remains.
    
    I'll keep your comments on file in case there's more discussion on this at
    a later date.
