Just updated... and it looks like we have new records again this time: 52 tables registered so far! And only 15 stands yet...

Please people, do not forget to register dinner participation at least one week up front and to also pay at least one week up front to make it valid! I have to order dinner for a certain number of people up front so I need to be sure everyone who registers also pays, so I can cover the caterer's bill...

Also, if you have plans to still register, please do it now. If you do not get a confirmation within a day, let me know via e-mail, as there seems to be some issues on the server for certain people.

I am pleased to announce that on the eve of the fair a traditional hotel meeting will take place in the Mercure in Nijmegen. Of course all visitors are very welcome to discuss the past and the future of our system in a small circle.
At 15th we will start around 19 o'clock and experience shows that the staff will remove us from their establishment around 1 o'clock. You don't have to be a hotel guest to join that circle of pure wisdom and nostalgia.
The meeting takes place in the restaurant of the hotel, food and beer are provided, internet access and media player are available.
We would be very happy to welcome you to our conspiratorial meeting.
If asked, the password is: "I will pay the bill!" Please make sure everybody can hear it.

As I have to pre-order the dinner one week before the event, please let me know if you want to participate as soon as possible and make sure I have received the payment for it (of 12.50 euros) Friday at the latest!

So, if you want to participate in the dinner, do not hesitate and contact me by e-mail a.s.a.p.!

Me and Whizzy decided to visit the fair today; it had been a number of years since we had been to one and this was a pleasant reminder of why we liked these events. Great nostalgia and the itch to revisit our MSXs was really felt. Great getting a coding / level design demonstration by N.O.P. (their Lemmings title), meeting Abi van Tamelen after many years and even bumping into a Paragon member from long past on our way out! If this all sticks, we may even end up manning a table ourselves again in the future...

Oh, and I could not resist leaving a million+ highscore for Rollerball on one of the playable machines. Amazing how that game brings out muscle memory!
