 Retro Computing Mart. FEB 26 2002
Hi All,

UK users should be aware that Micro Mart are starting a retro computing column. Here is an extract from Micro Mart’s email newsletter:


It’s official! Micro Mart’s regular Retro Computing Mart starts in issue 686, taking a weekly look at the computers of yesteryear and how they’re faring today. You’d be surprised just how much is going on – for instance, did you know that a version of Bomberman is being developed for the MSX?! Also, in two weeks is the first in our monthly Overclockers’ Workshops – make sure you get that order in!"

Providing the first weeks article is how I have written it, it should mention a couple of recent developments for the C64. The column should continue for a further seven weeks, all being well.

Please visit and join the Micro Mart forum, and send all comments to if you want the column to continue.

?Prob. with apostrophes – Problem removed FEB 19 2002
During the weekend the database was moved to a new dedicated server. It seems that the new database server is configured slightly differently, as it is not accepting the APOSTROPHES, so try to make back-up of what you write before posting it. I am going solve this problem in following days. Problem removed
?SealSEX Named and Shamed FEB 19 2002
The group – SEALSEX – has been named and shamed due to the fact that they have upset the author of the game project -Heavy Metal Deluxe- (Richard Bayliss) with their crack of the game preview. They called it a full game and added -very nasty- comments on to their intro screen. Therefore causing Richard to be really stressed and upset.

Despite all this bullying, which Richard had to suffer, he has decided that the game will go ahead. It is still in beta-test at the moment, but it should be ready in a few weeks time. The full game still needs some work to be done and will be released once everything is perfect.

Also Richard has a little surprise in store for the scene, sometime this week. Not telling you what it is, but you should find it in ftp sites before the weekend.
