I'm having some horrible health issues and no one is entirely sure why they're happening.

Good thoughts, plz? I'm just so tired and confused and want nothing more than to just crawl into bed and never come out.
Sincerely wishing you a speedy recovery, mate. :)

Thanks y'all. :) I appreciate the good wishes.

Here's what's going on: some of you might know I was born with a condition called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility type. (Which basically means I am a living pretzel because of a lack of properly strong connective tissue.) It does not just affect my joints and flexibility though; it also mucks with my various bodily systems, especially the digestive system. Which is honestly the only reason anyone can think of for what's happened...

It turns out I've got stage 3 liver fibrosis - the stage right before cirrhosis for the record - and there is apparently no bloody reason why this has happened. Bloodwork and tests have come back utterly normal. Research does show the EDS can cause stuff like this, sounds legit enough, I plan to talk this out with my doc the next time I go in. It's currently not affecting me in any detrimental way, but it's very possible this will be an extremely big problem in the future, and treating it is only "treat the symptoms and not the cause" because the cause can't be treated. So yeah, that's...where things are at right now.

That's a cool little graphic. Those were the special versions like 1.5 in Galaxy and I believe 1.32 or something in Vorticons, right?

^ Source found? (Compare to Roobar's post above.) Looks very similar, although in this smaller image the blue/white stripe goes behind the emblem. Perhaps this is from the back of the box?

According to this page from good old All-You-Can-Eat Commander Keen, I guess the image* proYorp is talking about comes from a package that also contained the Gravis joystick (not gamepad!) and Microsoft Flight Simulator. Note that the author mentions that the picture is on the bottom-left corner of the box, unlike in the box Roobar is showing.

That is a neat graphic, by the way! It's weird seeing Keen with a long-sleeve shirt, though, and I can't tell if he's holding his Neural Stunner or that's a belt. Thanks for sharing the neat picture, Roobar!

Probably the same problem that occured with images from KeenWiki in the past. archive.shikadi.net still lacks HTTPS.

Anyways, thanks for pointing that out. :) I spotted the image from AYCECK on another ancient fansite that had no information about its source.

The image(s) in my post? They both show up just fine for me. Weird. Guess I'll have to keep HTTPS in mind when linking images.
