Unfortunate New Rule, and First Casualty

The install CD for Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri is nowhere to be found. This is sad news to me, as it was going to be one of the first things I was going to eliminate from the backlog. Because of this unfortunate turn of events, I'm going to add a new rule.

12. Suspension: if, for whatever reason, an item cannot be consumed, it is not removed from the backlog, but suspended. Suspended items will be noted in the master backlog list. When I clear whatever hurdles prevent me from consuming it, it will be removed from suspended status. Suspended items do not count as being on the backlog at all for the purposes of eliminating things.

Reason: Cannot locate install media

On a related note, if anybody knows of a trustworthy place where I can purchase a legal copy of this game for a modest price, please let me know.


  1. If you wanna send me your address, I have a copy* i could send you. If you have Linux, i have both the original, and the expansion somewhere.

    *Note it is a real copy, not a pirated one.

  2. I might take you up on that eventually. We'll see if mine turns up, first.
