Benjamin Wimmer3,022Back in 1983 the ZX Spectrum classic *Manic Miner* by _Matthew Smith_ was released. 30 years later, it's the game to be played in the 4th _Retro Gamers Challenge_. h/t to @106168709712720711347 for picking this gem. While the targeted platform is ZX Spectrum, feel free to play it on whatever hardware you want and submit your score. As before, the event-feature is misused to define a deadline, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are welcomed - right away till Sun, Mar 10 (7:00 PM, CET). How to participate in this challenge: ○ Fire up your copy of _Manic Miner_ ○ Grab all the items ○ Jump over all the enemies ○ Clear as many levels as you can ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Repeat Lastly, although it's an event of the _Retro Gamers Community_ (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe), sharing it with other gamers out there is of course welcomed. Past challenges #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLi  #2: Chuckie Egg (Amstrad CPC) goo.gl/Yqwcl  #3: Time Bandit (Tandy CoCo) goo.gl/3E6pDRetro Gamers Challenge #4: Manic Miner2013-03-10 19:00:0015  
Benjamin Wimmer3,022Es gibt sicher ein paar Wiener *Ghostbusters* Fans da draußen, oder? Ich schmeiß ganz einfach mal einen unverbindlichen *Kino-HIRL*-Termin für nächsten Donnerstag im Wiener _Gartenbaukino_ raus und wer Lust und Laune hat, einfach melden und/oder vorbeischauen. Das Kino ist bekanntermaßen eh groß genug. Beginn ist 21:00, Karten gibt's um €7,50. Ghostbusters @ Gartenbaukino.at2013-02-21 20:30:002  
Benjamin Wimmer3,022With all the snow and ice outside, why not stay inside and join *Retro Gamers Challenge #3*? This time, it was +John Hattan who had the honor to select a game and he came up with the legendary TRS-80 CoCo classic *Time Bandit* (trs-80.org/time-bandit). As before, the event-feature is misused to define a _deadline_, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are welcomed - right away till *Sun, Feb 3 (7:00 PM, CET)*. How to participate in this challenge: ○ Open the CoCo Java Emulator available at haplessgenius.com/mocha/ ○ Click "Setup" > Tab "Bin" and chose the program "Time Bandit" ○ Press "K" to start a new game ○ Arrow keys to move and Space to fire ○ Shoot enemies, steal treasures, collect keys, jump into the teleport fields and clear as many worlds as possible ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Repeat You can of course also play on your original hardware or any other emulator. Regarding other ports (e.g. for _Amiga_ or _Atari ST_): these ports differ in various aspects, so while I look forward to see screenshots and scores of these versions as well, mixing these and the CoCo won't really be possible. Depending on the number of submissions, there is however a chance to compose a second highscore table :-) Lastly, although it's an event of the Retro Gamers Community (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe) it is defined as a public event, therefore feel free to share and to invite other gamers. _Past challenges_ #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLi  #2: Chuckie Egg (Amstrad CPC) goo.gl/Yqwcl Retro Gamers Challenge #3: Time Bandit2013-02-03 19:00:0010  
Benjamin Wimmer3,022There’s nothing better than starting a new year with a little challenge, right? The game to be played for the *Second Retro Gamers Challenge* was picked by +Jamie Gunn and he opted for *Chuckie Egg* on the _Amstrad CPC_. While the various ports do differ slightly, I would say that all platforms are welcomed although try to go for the _Amstrad CPC_ one if possible. Again, this event is misused to define a *deadline*, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are possible - right away *till Sun, Jan 13 (7:00 PM, CET)*. How to participate in this challenge: ○ Setup your gear (original hardware or emulator) ○ Start a fresh game (Difficulty level 3 on C64) ○ No cheating (cheat codes, use of save-stats) ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Play again ;-) Lastly, although it's an event of the *Retro Gamers Community* (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe) it is defined as a _public_ event, therefore feel free to share and to invite other gamers. _Past challenges_ #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLiRetro Gamers Challenge #2: Chuckie Egg2013-01-13 19:00:0011

Built a truly wonderful thingy today!

A joke turned reality as a matter of fact.
A couple of screws and some other few bits was all that was needed.
Now, I can put my 27" monitor from the desk to my IKEA wing chair and back again within seconds.

What's left to do is getting a longer power cord for the monitor and a wireless keyboard + touchpad combo :-)

David Gilmour is in town today -- actually, he played his first of two gigs here at Schloss Schönbrunn yesterday -- but I'm too lazy to get up and check out if tuning in and freaking out is possible from somewhere outside.
I've seen Floyd back in 1994 and Gilmour solo (with Wright on keyboards) about a decade and Water playing The Wall a couple of years ago, so my motivation for let's go watch him play Wish You Were Here for the gazillionth time is quite low anyway, so let's just dive in listening to one of their best live stuff recorded: the 1971 gig at BBC radio.
Enjoy.

Downloaded a copy of The Keep (on sale right now here in Europe) for 3DS and it's fun. It plays quite similar to John Carmack's _Orcs & Elves for DS (but lacking its humor) but also brings new ideas to the 90s dungeon crawler genre like the place-all-your-runes-on-a-grid-and-swipe-for-different-spells magic system.

It's all about the hi-score
I've came across Google's Test My Site¹ and PageSpeed Insights² tools some time ago and of course I've thrown my site bigboxcollection.com in for a quick validation.
Well, I do know that my site is quite heavy regarding image count and size – heck, there's over 2.6GB of high-res scans of over 400 games available through it– but getting scores as low as 8 and 15 out of 100 wasn't what I've expected.

Anyway, making good use of the detailed feedback and suggestions on how to improve things, I'm on the other end of the spectrum now³. Hurrah!

¹ testmysite.thinkwithgoogle.com
² developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ ³ Well, in regard of how long it takes to get the above the fold content rendered that is; there's still tons of images to shovel ;-)

Fifty three games complete with manuals and posters. Most of them in mint condition looking like I've just got them from the store. Below an album with snapshots.

And with a new record to be released soon and an accompanying tour, it kinda makes sense that they're headlining the alternative stage at this year's Donauinselfest.
But then again, it absolutely doesn't because the last time I've seen them here in Vienna, it was a rather small gig with ~500 folks only.

I love the reduced poster art of Aliens – actually all the Alien movies minus Resurrection – and that it was even further cleaned up for the game from 1987.

Box scan should be up on bigboxcollection.com shortly.
