I remember some hilarious trips to Wolvega in the Genic timeline..

Maybe the best thing I recall is the time I FINALLY got grip of an z80 assembly programmers guide. I was like 15 year old or so. After having done many years in BASIC it was time to get really working.

this was really a great day. well, the start of many great days to come I quess.
I could mention so many.....

I remember buying my first original MSX game: Salamander, with an SCC switch. I more or less paid the thing in pennies, which gave the seller of it quite a laugh Wink

I miss the time that we from UMF had a booth at the fair in Tilburg (i think it was in 1995) but nobody had a car or a drivers license... so we went by train with: a coulpe of 8250's, color monitors, speakers, 200 disks, amplifier...

everybody in the train thought we were crazy... and we were Wink
but all stuff did survive!!

I think many groups went to MSX fairs with trains. Coming from Groningen you started to see other people carrying those Philips Monitors on the trainstations. At Tilburg some parts of the trains were full of MSX users. I remember seeing Anne walking around with 2 color monitors with a bag of (I think) disks around his arm, hurrying to catch the next train to Tilburg... those were the days indeed... Most times, the fair started long before the doors of the fair hall opened. Wink

Yeah the trip to such an event isn't the same anymore and never will be. We went to Bussum by train this year and I hardly doubt if that will happen again. No nostalgic feelings, just a trip which took too long. Though we had some fun during the trip Smile So next year I'll probably go by car. Then it's also possible to take a shitload of hardware with us for the Near Dark boot Smile

Now we all grown up and most of us are no students anymore but hard workers Smile and we have our own car.

I used to be a student as well. I remember one of my first visits to a Tilburg MSX fair. It took me and my companion almost 1 1/2 hours to get from Hengelo to Deventer. The railways claimed that was because of: a) leaves on track b) sign failure c) everything. We did manage to get there and enjoy the fair for a few hours, but I'm glad all other fairs I attended went a lot more smoothly in the travel department Wink.

And the second Bussum party I hauled around with way too much stuff. Something I (well, my spine actually Wink) regret until this day.

Trains missing stations is also a favourite part of Bussum by train Wink. 'Do I need this train?' 'Yes' ... '{moderated}! Train taxi for me... AGAIN!' Wink.

Anyway, I will attend Oss2k5 as well (write another Realtime Article of course) but I still don't have a clue wether I will go by car or by train. Well, you should see me turn up somehow Smile.

Aah, take the train to Bussum ZUID, not Naarden-Bussum Smile. The one which leaves at :24 and :54 from Utrecht, not the one at :15 and :45 ^_^...

See, it's not hard Smile.
