In the post about orichalcum, a video was linked in the body. Lo and behold, the author, auntie-matter of the video posts in the comments (as a long time lurker, now a member)

(I dug the post for the jokes on Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. The CD version with the digitized voices is worth finding a copy )

auntie-matter shared more information on ancient and unusual alloys in that thread.

And I'm not sure what's up on Steam and GOG, but here's the first part of a long walk-through video on YouTube, which seems to be the version with digitized voices. (I jumped in to listen, and around the 20 minute mark, orichalcum is being tested in a lab.)

(I wasn't sure if linking to GoG would be a bad thing .. I had the soundless version in the 90s because I didn't have a CD player at the time, but then around 2004-6 bought the lost classics collection from LucasArts with Indy, DOTT, Sam/Max and I think a few others, on CD with the digitized voices.. )

Hello! Long-time lurker is like 15+ years, even. No idea why it took me that long to actually sign up to be able to post but there you go.

And a past customer of mine is here too. Brilliant. :D

I got Fate of Atlantis on Steam, and I can confirm it's the talkie version.

That blog is full of very useful illustrations of how complex (-to-me, anyway) things are done.

Thanks, Auntie!!!

The Etsy link is borked for me, quaking fajita.

Johnny Wallflower, probably because it's a sold and private listing. Visible to me and quaking fajita only.

I hope quaking fajita doesn't mind, I've copied the ring photo to here. The smaller ring is a hammer finished shibuichi (50/50 silver/copper alloy) and the larger is pure silver with half-patina effect.

I really hope this isn't coming off like I'm only here just to pimp my stuff because I'm honestly not. Pimping my Etsy shop is what my reddit account is for...

Oops, sorry. I thought the previous sales were public.

Welcome auntie-matter. A good time to remind people about the Hey That's Me page on the wiki.
