This is a question Desperate Times

Stranded in a hotel in an African war zone with no internet access for two weeks, I was forced to resort to desperate measures. Possessing only my passport and the clothes I stood up in; and the warning "You can catch it shaking hands with a vicar out there" ringing in my ears, I had to draw my own porn in order to preserve my sanity.

Alas, it all came out looking like Coronation Street's Audrey Roberts, but, as they say, any port in a storm.

What have you done in times of great desperation?

there was a time before broadband..
..when CompuServe national rate calls to Manchester were charged by the minute and use of the World Wide Web was restricted to an hour a month (as you had to use their own bulletin board system).

Me and a friend spent hours (this was over a 9600 baud modem on Win 3.11) downloading tiny GIFs of semi-naked ladies - note: not animated, just static images. If my mate wasn't there it'd be men, too.

I also remember this being an upgrade to "ASCII porn" on the Amiga, [which is an artform to be re-discovered..] especially as a lowly 14 year old storing them all on single sided single density floppies marked "English homework".

Well, it was a time when my only access to anything close to porn was the Littlewoods catalogue.

Length? 3.5"; or 5.25" if you were desperate enough to bother and plug in the serial cable to transfer it
