Another small (very small!) Compact Flash card turned up in work today.  A whopping 32Mb in size, but should be ample to go with the other (massive) 16Mb card that I've got.  I've dumped all the games from the 8Gb card I was using with the DivIDE because it wouldn't recognise the card. 

Still need to get a SCART lead for it as, due to my inability to tell the colour of 128K Spectrums apart, I've got one from Phu for a black Spectrum 128K+ with tape deck, when I needed one for the grey model.  Ho hum .. aerial lead for now :)

Then I can start messing with the LOAD * and SAVE * stuff for these various ultra-classic (Psion era games) and the few odd game creators I've picked up recently.

Just received an Amstrad NC200. I've been after one for a while and they've been fetching a bit too much for me, until now :-)

Very happy. It's a nice piece of kit.

Finally arrived - Megami Tensei (Digital Devil Story) on an MSX cartridge. Lovely condition, boxed and with user guide and art book.

Had to get it from Japan and spent way too much on it really. But I'm happy to say I own it so what the hell.

Bought Starwing on SNES from fleaBay to reward myself for finishing a project this weekend.

You see how bad a procrastinator I am... I now have to bribe myself to finish my own projects.

Not exactly latest... But I just received Temple Of Apshai for the Apple ][. I really wanted the original version of this (not the trilogy release) and then lo and behold, a boxed one turns up (complete with all the original gumpf)... Guess where? Go on...

Yep, you guessed it - Venezuela. ???

There is so much stuff coming out of Venezuela these days. A lot of Atari 2600 titles that have been impossibly rare are now almost common finds
