What the H-E-Double-Hockeysticks is a ‘diskdaddy’?

Unbelievably nerdy, is what.

The moniker ‘diskdaddy’ was conceived way back in the days when Commodore 64 was the crème de la crème in home computing and a magazine was the medium upon which budding young software developers got their knowledge.

When you played games on the ’64, often times several games were on one 5 1/4″ floppy disk. Instead of loading each game manually by typing on the keyboard, it was WAY cooler to create a menu to display all of the available games and “one-click” your way into a sweet round of “Raid on Bungeling Bay” (one of the first games by SimCity creator, Will Wright).

Artists sign their work – and as far as an 11 year old is concerned, this impossibly cool menu was a masterpiece! Predating even chat rooms, it was en vogue to use a cool nickname. It was the 80’s, and, in a small town, the 70’s lingo lingered due to limited access to suburban culture and a deplorable new-release rental selection at the local video store…thus was born “diskdaddy“.
