Bit Rot

Bit rot is the reason that my favourite VHS tape (containing a number of episodes ofThe Goodies) has gone unwatched for almost half of my life****, and that when I wrote a poem in my dissertation about my favourite arcade game, Mappy*****, I then had to explain what Mappy was because nobody’s been interested in that game in about 20 years. It’s also the reason that I can’t play my favourite game, because someone in student halls a few years ago broke my clunky console (which would have cost about £10 when it was bought, but now costs much, much more because everything is terrible) and I have not been able to replace it.

Fascinating! | I’d rather be watching The Goodies…
