Next year, MSX will celebrate its 30th birthday on June 27th, 2013! To celebrate this event, Konamito is organizing a photo contest. To participate, the only rule is that you take a photo of your MSX. This can be in a special location, like outside near a lake, on a rock, in a cave, or in the snow or maybe just in the room where you created your greatest MSX product. Also you are free to go wild with composition, filters and effects or keep it neutral as you prefer. Be creative! As long as your MSX is prominently visible, it's welcome.

The competition ends on May 27nd, 2013 and you can send your entries to Konamito, who will also function as the jury. All submitted photos will be collected in a photobook which you can order online through lulu.com and the winner of the competition will receive a photobook for free! More details and rules can be found in the here. Gentlemen, grab your cameras!

I definately think that NYYRIKKI should send in a photo! It must be something in the Finnish air or something, but he has this creative way of looking at things that would make for great photos!

No I didn't, but this room has been great source of inspiration... For some reason it seems that in this room things like "MSX emulator for MSX" suddenly start to sound perfectly good ideas... I don't know why... I don't think beer plays any important role in this as I usually only take few.

With glasses that size, you only need a few to get totally wasted Tongue

Anyways, I know the feeling too well. When drinking some beers I always have brilliant ideas. But in my case they end up being not so good when I'm sober again Tongue

Well, select witch one works better:

In Helsinki: "Yes, I have drinked my beer halfway. I just drink rest of the beer, change few words with my friends and then I come home"

In Nijmegen: "Yes, I will just change few words with my friends and drink 8 more beers before I come home"

Facts don't change, but it is all about attitude that matters... It's like what I said to my friend when he complained to me that every time he is out with friends he tries to be very careful. He makes sure that he turns the key on home door as quietly as possible. He takes the shoes off immediately and even all the other clothes before he even opens the bedroom door. Then he tries to sneak in to the bed, but no matter how quiet he is his wife always wakes up and starts complaining about how long he was in a bar yet again.

I told him that when I go home I always slam the door close. Then I go to kitchen to make few sandwiches and drop few pots to the floor. After that I go to bedroom, drop my clothes to the floor and yell out "Do you want to have some fun?" and I have newer any problems. My wife always pretends to be sleeping.

That's a great pic and wow is that a big beer glass. hahahaha. Amazing! : ) Don't spill your beer, even a little, or that poor little GT will flooded with booze.

So do these pictures submitted for the 30th Anniversary have to be taken with the owner as well or just of the MSX hardware? Was just curious about the format. I might do a photo to submit sometime. : )

So, you just brought it? What did they say when you brought it in?

Or do they have it installed permanently there?

I think it can be translated to something like "What the... Ah... right... it's definitely NYYRIKKI again..."

Yes, sure... They have also SEGA R-360, some teleporting device and a nuclear powerplant.

Hey, it's Finland, we keep getting surprised of what happens there! Glad they provided you power and room for the GT Smile

So, you just thought: "I have the right to go to a bar without losing touch of my MSX! So I just bring it!"
