A good friend of mine back in the dim days of 2400-baud, when BBSs reigned supreme, introduced me to a wonderful game called VGA Planets. Within minutes, I was hooked, and sent off for my registration to Tim. I developed a fast affinity for the Colonies; aside from being an old-school BSG fan, the various tech aspects and advantages were just plain fun.
Time wore on, and as it did, the BBS where we played sputtered and died. It was a few years before, on that lousy old service called AOL, I found another host, and dived back in. It was fun while it lasted, but as did most things with AOL, this too came to an end.
Fast forward to 2011. In a fit of nostalgia, I poked about the net for word of VGAP, fully expecting to find it in the "where are they now" list alongside such greats as Ascendancy and Panzer General. Lo and behold, I find instead VGAP Nu, and an old love was found again.
