I dunno about anyone else, but I have a particular liking for old, so-called "not very good" photos. You shouldn't hide them! They convey a tremendous amount of atmosphere of the time - the grain effect helping.
Modern stuff today is so clinically precise.

Here's one I meant to use with the interview, but couldn't find at the time. Screenshot of the very first version of Mirinae's homepage, from early 1996:
Also, copy&paste from the blog:
In other news, as a new research opportunity has opened up since the article was first written (namely the full-text-search supported online availability of three daily newspapers up until 1999), the first small chapter in part 1, "Zero Hour", has been significantly improved and almost doubled in length. The history now also has a definitive starting date, which is the year 1976. For anyone interested in really old stuff (like Pong consoles and such) that portion will be well worth a re-read. There's also a new appendix listing most Korean gaming magazines that were published throughout the years, and of course also the usual small corrections & additions throughout, notably many new old photos in the main text body.

Semi-OT, but how would one go about aquiring a Korean computer like the Zemmix or a Samsung SPC-1500 in the US? I've used services like Shopping Mall Japan to order from Yahoo Auctions Japan, but there doesn't seem to be a similar service for Korea. If it helps, my sister-in-law lives in Korea.
Is your sister-in-law Korean/does she speak Korean? The best way is having a Korean friend register at Ruliweb and make them post a want-to-buy every once in a while. I did that for about 5-6 months and got a Zemmix V in the end. All that stuff is usually expensive.
