Another great week for Retro Computing fans. Fancy recreating the unique sounds of the Gravis Ultrasound audio card without having to locate one of the old cards on eBay? No problem, Ian Scott has created the PiGUS which is exactly what you are probably thinking it is. Forget Nemesis from Resident Evil, the real terror that stalks you is Rex from 3D Monster Maze VR! Finally, are you a tech hoarder or a collector? Is there a fine line between and where do you draw it? All that and what might have been our most popular Community Question Of The Week!
