Ok, so hopefully this isn't a complete cop-out but I can't pin down a single project. I have a bunch of small things I'd like to work on, so my winter challenge "project" is to blog, and document my findings. I often wish more people would document what they do and discover, so I'll practice what I preach.

 

Anyway, tomorrow's the start. Have fun. woot!

I'm not sure if i will join this year since things went awry for me last time and i can't think of anything that i would like to do at the moment.

 

well i can think of some things but i'm not sure if it really belongs in the retro challenge.

 

One is that for a month i will only use my "olivetti lettera 32"

 

the other is that i will limit my gaming to interactive fiction.

 

let me know what you guys think.

There *is* a lot of good interactive fiction out there, but a whole month? I'd be afraid of burn out. I'd be tempted to create a page documenting what IF development and runtime setups work with system 6 and/or 7?

 

I mean, I doubt you can develop Inform 7 on a mac plus, but you should be able to play an Inform 7 game right?

Hey all! I forgot (or didn't know I had to) register, but got that done last night and just got on here right now. Look forward to hanging out. :)

 

My goals.. to get an Amiga 2000 working the way I want to reliably, and fix up a few things on the Atari 800 I have. Yes, Jay Miner did some good work. :)

does it not work for you?

 

it should bring up a video of a zx printer running from a zx81 printing the entry list for the warm-up.

 

 

as an aside - i am doing quite well thanks - glad the holidays are passed ad things are returning to normal.

that said i have a very nice xmas/new year.

 

things grand with you i hope.

I love IF enough to avoid a burn out (i hope).

 

i can't be 100% sure about the plus but i have a se/30 that has never had any problem with any IF I've tried. I haven't tried to write anything myself however.

 

making a howto for people that want to use IF on a compact does seem like a nice idea however.

 

still... using only my olivetti for a month still seems like more of a challenge. i just don't know how i will keep a journal

I'm late, but I am busy making HELLO WORLD programs for the original Apple 1.

 

I noticed your first program a few days ago. Nice work. I think small assembler apps are a lot of fun to write. I'm going to have to go find a cheat sheet for those mnemonics.
