Amazing anaecdote from Peter Briggs, the author of the screenplay for Alien Versus Predator — via Wired
I wroteA vs Poriginally — oh, God… did you hear that? I actually saidA vs P. I hate that thing… it’s likeT2orLXG! Anyway, I wrote it on an Amstrad computer, which was about one step above a Univac Room Filler. In ’92 I swapped to an Apple Mac, which I’ve used ever since. And I ended up losing the Amstrad disk, which was some weird, unreadable proprietary brand anyway. It wasn’t until whoever it was transcribed it and pirated it onto the web years later, that I was able to cut-and-paste it into Final Draft and have an electronic copy again. So, thank-you, Internet Leaker, wherever you were!
