Hello everyone !

Here is a thread where I will share you my finds and eventually the lost ones.

First, I want to share you my biggest find ... I lost ... :(

When I've found the deal, the guy was located quite close to me (about 1h30 by car from my home) so I asked him if I could come to check the items.
He was ok but I had been overloaded by my job and when I finally called him to see its stuff ... It was to late. :'(

So, here is the only pictures I have of its stuff:

That's a cool set of books. Planning to do some UI stuff?
In fact, the seller has all Inside Macintosh books (version 1 and 2), I would love to take them for collection and curiosity but I don't have the room and money for that.
About these books specificaly, it's because I am a developer who dreamed to make software on Mac when I was young. Now that I have skills (to understand) and money (to get them) ... I got them and I will read them mainly for fun. Maybe I will try to develop something but I will have to find time for that (I have 2 young children).
Finally, about UX/UI guidelines book, even if the book is 29 years old, the concepts are still very good so it will be interesting for my actual job.

The UI book is interesting, I have the English version (and the Macsbug book). :)

Nice score. Was a great little game for its time. I think it was LittleWing's first. It's apart of what I called a trilogy (based on its Aurthurian theme) that included Crystal Caliburn and Golden Logres; although Golden Logres never had a bigbox retail release and was digital only.

Loony Labyrinth is my favorite of their bigbox pinballs. It's like a little adventure game wrapped into a pinball. They did better with the physics, which could get annoying with Crystal Caliburn. If it weren't for the physics quirks of Crystal Caliburn, that one would have been my favorite.

No, it's my stupid brain mixing up Lager and Logres

Oh, that makes sense. It's a very natural word to follow 'Golden', after all.

Fun fact: in Modern Welsh, Lloegr (which is the same name) is the name of England as a whole, though it used to be just part of what is now the south of England.

Sorry, @zefrenchtoon, I'll stop derailing your thread now.
