We are back to chat about going to the pub to game using both their kit and your own. We then move on to looking at some new, old-school, handheld PC devices. Finishing with a story about how the Miami F1GP was captured to floppy disk!
All this and the Community Question Of The Week.
We are sponsored by Pixel Addict magazine. The latest issue is on its way and it takes a look at how people are preserving retro tech and software. They just added some new binders to the Merch section of their store. Please support them by visiting https://www.pixel.addict.media/
