sniff....
Good to see I'm not the only fool here.

I really, really enjoyed the great MSX experience which has completely filled up most of my precious time back then. First time I got in contact with MSX was somewhere in the eighties... I did not had one myself and had to visit familie and friends who did, just to get my kicks. And they were all surprised to see me bring loads of new basic listings I had written during classes (at school, duh) and trying them out on MSX.

The best moments where when Alex (savage) and I met, got dronk, wrote stupid text in stupid demos, got more drinks at the pub and so on.
I really miss this little bugger, one of the best guys I ever got to learn. And I'm well proud to have experience all the great fairs seeing and meeting new ppl.

I wanted to cry...

Weird thing... As I'm 26 years now I shouldn't have missed out on too much of the action. But for some reason Hotel Pre-Parties are totally unknown for me. Guess I was just a couple of years behind. Should have been a couple of years older Tongue

Nah anywayz, most memorized moments for me are the nights before fairs. Being around 11, 12, 13 lying in bed next to a huge pile of disks to be sold next day Tongue Too anxious to sleep at all. And ofcourse the numerous times Sunrise published some demo, intro, menu or whatever I participated in was really giving me the kicks...

Ah those times Tongue

Basically all MSX music is nostalgia too. Still play a lot of 'm on the synth. I recently got this ~ afaik unreleased ~ replayer which can play all original MSX FM classics (T&E soft/Falcom/MicroCabin/TechnoSoft/Telenet Japan/etc.). Wow... was I feelin' *good* when I heard all these songs again!

Also Konami Sound System (kss.exe) really helps bringing back those memories. Salamander certainly was the toughest, but coolest shooter available for MSX 1. Spent many days playing it. F1-Spirit is another great MSX 1 title I played a lot.

When MSX 2 came around, I played Metal Gear and Usas. But also other classics like Super Runner (anyone remembers that beauty?). I bought my own MSX 2 pretty late. Early 90's. Before that I was a lame VG-8010 user with only 32kB on-board. Thank god they invented those ROM packs aka cartridges. (As a matter of fact: that's why original games rock!!! They always work.)

But the best thing about MSX is that it makes you want to know more about it. It makes you curious... It tickles your creativity. I know other systems can do that too. But those always turn you down. Your MSX doesn't.

So what happened to Alex?

They finally gave up giving therapy, due to the fact of memory leak and unfolding of follies of history. So what happened? No-one really knows, 'till this day his where abouts are still a mistery to all of us. Some signs are pointing at the northpoll, while other stories include the transending to hell's deepest woods where the head's eye meets a dark horizon .. Sensing no time.

All remains is the evidence of yesterday, which we all know as "the Savage's travels" put together as a farewell and goodbye to this cruel world. Now in bookstores all over the great glope...

May god give him the rest he was always searching for.
it's a fuzzy world after all!

Let me translate this ro-text to English: "I don't know, I think I should call him one day"
