I was recovering some TPM save files, and the type of files were called 'save1.zanzi'
-----
This should be emphasized because you're name is ZANZIBAR. Does this have anything to do with you working there at all?

The game's codename was Zanzibar, so they probably just used that file extension for that reason.

Well, it's actually one of my fave stories for TPM...

TPM's Lucasarts codename was Zanzibar, so that's why the savegames were named zanzi*.sav. However, I came up with the name when LEC was asking us what we wanted our codename to be - I have been using Zanzibar as my 'callsign' for several different games over the past years. Somehow no one could come up with a better codename than what I suggested, so LEC went ahead and used it http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif

I've gone under Zanzibar for almost 5 years now, from Warcraft II, through Meridian 59 online, Xwing vs Tie Fighter through MS's Zone, and now Everquest.

Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar, we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon
And some kidnapped handicap was complaining that he caught the clap from some mousetrap he bought last night
Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw a gap but he'd figured he'd be all right

...Sorry, couldn't resist that.
