    Bethesda crosses its arms and coughs "Daggerfall."

    Just tell us who you got it from, Drog Black Tooth.

    If it's private info, you can PM me about it, I won't tell anybody. :M

    I was considering uploading a Microsoft word 9.0 document signed in 1931 predicting 9/11, but it was too much hassle, got better things to do. Imagine I just did and linked it.

    I'm not saying it's automatically fake, just that it could perfectly be, and looks somewhat fake.

    But where's fun in that?

    Basically, Big Gay Tim sent it to somebody and that somebody shared it with me. And now look at me leaking this! I'm admittedly not a very good person. Who knew.

    Was wondering if you've changed at all Drog..i guess i now know :)
    Regardless, my thanks for your mods. Many thanks.

    :philoso: If he stays around this time, can we still say "what's up Drog" to randoms? It's important to maintain Tradition

    Well, we'll try to reach out to Tim and see what we can learn about this.

    BTW, how do we even know about Journey to the Center of Arcanum? A Google search doesn't reveal any obvious article where its existence was originally revealed. I take it was some forum chatter with the Troika devs?

    In spite of everything, Drog, you're still a bro.

    Off to replay Arcanum again.

    Yeah, and Fallout 4 sold 1.2 million copies on Steam in its first 24 hours of release. Funny how the times have changed.

    That's why I think this piece of history is so interesting. Ol' Tim and his band of jolly developers really looked like kids playing with wooden blocks back then. Most of the pitch is way too naive and bizarre.

    I don't think you even need a special program to fake an early time stamp. Can't you just change your PC clock?
