The site is back up!

Had a bit of an issue with the MySQL server being upgraded; I was warned it was going to happen, but I was busy. Still I’ve migrated the database and updated php and rolled over to the latest version of WordPress now, and hopefully it’s all working fine again. Phew!



Preparation H is good for you…

I’ve added a link to the Hemeroids official web site to the “Blogroll” (It’s not really a blog though, so maybe I need to rename that column). Sure is nice to see oldskooler’s still around out there!

Disaster strikes!

Bang! My PC just died a couple of days ago. I have a few ideas, but I can’t be bothered figuring out exactly what’s gone wrong right now so I just nipped out and bought a new PC.

Alas, I’m having difficulty figuring out how to remove the drive cage from the old case (I’ve removed every screw & tried pressing or prising every metal tab & flange I can find). Till I do get the drive out I can’t do much ST stuff. I had a backup on an external drive, but it’s a few weeks old. Guess I should improve my backup strategy, OTOH, all I need to do here is physically remove the old drive from the case!!!

Update 13/2/2009

Finally found the secret method for releasing the drive cage. Now recovering files. w00t!

Of Historical Interest…

I recently discovered an old archive with the source to Jaguar XJ-220, an Amiga to ST conversion I was working on back in ’92. Alas the project was cancelled and the game never saw the light of day.

Now, thanks to the coolness that is emulation, I was able to get it running again, and the cool dudes over at ST preservation site Guardians of the paST have added an entry to document this game that never was!

ST Graveyard finds another victim

I have added my first ever complete screen to the graveyard. See it here.

Coming soon to an ST Graveyard near you

I have finished fixing up the unreleased Fingerbobs Demo TCC dug out. As soon as it has a name & a few new lines of scrolltext it’ll be ready! Coming soon!

Building the Sources

You have noticed that I’ve supplied source code to our screens when I have it. To build from sources yourself all you need is a copy of DevpacST v3 and an ST or emulation thereof. All the sources have been tested with this version of the assembler & work fine, so you should be good to go!

Fingerbobs on

It should probably come as no surprise, but the Fingerbobs do have an entry over on über scene site
