- The Huffington Post (26 Jun 2013) - Where Is Edward Snowden? Ecuador Foreign Minister Says He Doesn't Know
I was actually following the RT's & Kim Dotcom's live tweets yesterday as they tracked the entire Snowden's fiasco. It was comedy gold as a plane load of journalists took off to the sky towards Havanna.....
..... without Snowden.
Anyway, I am not here to write about Snowden's adventures. The media does a good job cover that already.
All these actually reminded me of a computer game that I used to play when I was a kid.
"Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego" (1985) by Broderbund (the same good people who gave us Choplifter, Karateka and Prince Of Persia).
Good news is that there is a Java-emulator DOS version available on the web for you to relive those childhood memories.
The one I played, when I was a kid, was the Apple ][ version. The game play is identical except that this DOS version has colour. I don't think I got sound from the emulator though.
Go ahead and try it! --> http://dosdose.com/game/13/where_in_the_world_is_carmen_sandiego/
p.s. One of the destinations in the game was Singapore and the short write-up introducing the country was that we were a population of 2.5 million (the game was dated 1985). Looking at the current overcrowded Singapore (and going to be even worse when we hit 6.9 million), I couldn't help but felt a stab in my heart.
