Default Pern computer game?

I have been searching all over for the Dragonriders:Cronicles of Pern. Does anyone know where, if I still can, to get it?

Just so you know, I had wanted it too and did a lot of research on it on the internet and what I found shocked me. The only time you ride your dragon is to go between, you don't get to control him or fight thread or anything, all you get to do is run around on the ground fighting tunnel snakes and wherries while running errands for other people. The graphics are bad too, it looks like they airbrushed the faces on people. I was very dissapointed.

Something really funny happened this weekend and I had to talk about it somewhere so here it is!

I was sitting at home, playing 'Drakan: The Ancients' Gates' and I mentioned to my little brother how I wished that someone would make a 'Dragonriders of Pern' video game like that; where you could fly your dragon around the world and blast stuff (namely thread) out of the sky. He says, "Just a second," and runs off into the kitchen. I just shrugged and returned my concentration to obliterating the griffins that were bugging me. I heard him rummaging around in some cabinets and drawers and he returned in a moment holding out a string and a matchbox toward me. I asked him, "What's that for?" He said, "It's your 'Dragonriders of Pern Ultimate Activity Set'!" I just looked at him kinda funny for a minute and then asked, "What am I supposed to do with it?" He says, "Burn the thread before it kills you!" and begins 'attacking' me with the string by wacking me in the face with it.

Little brothers, so annoying!

My brother's favorite past time is doing stupid stuff. Now, he's mostly into doing voices such as Stitch (from 'Lilo and Stitch) and his favorite, Meatwad (from 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force {I still wonder who came up with that}).

Good one c_ris! LOL!
