France, 2010. MSX in this region would appear to be dead. Well, not really.. A small Gallic village, led by druid Jipe, refuses to meet the Grim Reaper and strives to make MSX life in the surrounding areas quite a bit better.

Comics aside, the MSX village is a non profit organization which aims to protect and promote MSX in France and French speaking countries. This organization is currently preparing a grand first meeting which will take place on Saturday September 25th and Sunday September 26th, in Orleans, in North-Central France. The location is Résidence Universitaire Les Châtaigniers, 3 rue de Vendôme, Orleans (map). The place is open from 9 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and 9 AM to 5 PM on Sunday. Entrance is free for visitors and a table costs €10 for exhibitors. Participants so far are: Jipe (a human MSX encyclopedia) and Walter (an MSX globe trotter you may have seen during the latest Nijmegen fair).

French and possibly Walloon people shouldn't miss out on this event. All information about this fair can be found on the (French!) website of MSX Village, for reservations and/or any further information you can drop Franck an email, in French and English. Dutch speakers can use the same email address, the message will be forwarded to a Dutch speaking MSX Village member.

Yes, there is a finnish term "Kylähullu" and "Village Idiot" is english equivalent of it. Smile

So I just combined "MSX Village" and "Village Idiot".... Wink and that made "MSX Village Idiot".... Tongue

If you are really having your party at real village, I guess locals probably consider group of people who <3LOVE<3 ancient computers as some sort of village idiots.... Wink

To all MSX´ers who actually live in a small village:
(or how village idiots are born)

Villager: So, what you usually like to do?

You: I like programming MSX.

Villager: MSX.... Oh, you program those computers fitted in cars! My neighbor has six years old red Mitsubishi car... I think it was MSX model. It´s a such small world!

You: No, no... MSX is an old computer, japanese made it almost thirty years ago. I have eleven of them, and several non-working ones. I still keep buying more MSXs after all these years.

Villager: ????

(Silence)

You: ....I program games for my MSX, people around the world like to play them.

Villager: So you get money from that? My sister´s husband´s nephew is paid well for programming internet pages... I don´t understand nothing about it.... How much you earn monthly?

You: No, I get nothing....

Villager: ??????????

Villager: Get A Real Job!!!!!

You: I have a job already....

Villager: ?????

etc....
