One of the last of the original Disney Theme Park legends ... lost Marty Sklar and now X Atencio .  These guys' work had such a huge impact on so many people.

You have to admire a man who made Rapey Pirates into Hungry Pirates.

They were awesome rides. If you had wings was cool as well.

I always remembered that Xavier was a Colorado boy, RIP good sir.  Oh crap, Marty Sklar died too....I missed that bit of news.

Many years ago in the days of the Commodore Amiga, many software publishers had tried to copy-protect their diskettes. And, as happened on other platforms, bit copiers were released to crack such protection and allow customers to make backups.

One of them (I forget the name) made very clear that their software was not to be used for copyright infringement, but was only for making legal backups to protect one's software investment. The first screen it displayed was the typical FBI splash screen warning that copyright infringement was against the law.

Then up popped a picture of a seaside cave with an open treasure chest spilling over with gold, jewels, and diskettes. Lots of diskettes. With that song clip from the headline playing in a loop, until one clicked past it to get to the main program. 😁
