Hope you are sitting comfortably as its a longer than usual episode this week. We were joined by Jason from Mr Lurch's Things on the team this week and had a good old chat. There is a wonderful story of an Amiga user who died far too young and after recovering some of his Deluxe Paint art he now has an exhibit dedicated to him at the Derby Computer Museum. We talk about the different stages of collecting, are you the type who must buy everything or have you moved on to only wanting what you need? Finally we look at the stunning version of Eye Of The Beholder for the C64 & C128.
All that and the Community Question Of The Week.
