Episode 84 of the Jeff Reads His Book #podcast is out now! Do you enjoy terrible descriptions of setting, including, but not limited to, vague mentions of interconnected hallways? Then this ep is for you!
@fribbledom "...that dusty 14" CRT monitor..." in the '80s!?! What are you, a millionaire!?!
@dosnostalgic I’m reading it now. I’m only 20 or so pages in, but pretty good thus far!

My 8088-powered #Rainbow running MS-DOS feels orders of magnitude faster than the i5-powered Mac running Catalina sitting next to it...
