Re: Is it possible to order from Retrosoftware?

Hi, not sure yet whether contact will be through his main stardot account, or the retrosoftware account which I set up several years back ... we'll be sure to post an update to this thread once we've got everything worked out.

This thread is to merely ask the question of how we alternate the Tuesday General Sessions and Thursday Dev nights. Also, I think we have to take into account the needs of Ed first and foremost, as well as the ot...

I have Galaxy Conflict but I missed out on Conflict when several copies of each appeared on ebay (for several 8-bit platforms) maybe 6-8 years ago. From memory 2-3 BBC Galaxy Conflicts were listed but only 1 x BBC Conflict (which I think I got outbid on). GC was in a giant box so was stored separate...

Very cool David!

I love the fact that the Master still has the Acorn World teletext screen on it (that Dave Jeffery designed), which I assume was left over from when you displayed it in the foyer in between the two rooms at Retro Reunited Huddersfield/Acorn World 2009!?
