nIGHTFALL : Memory Expansion Spem EXP-MEM 512k for Sinclair QL [[source]]

I thank my dear friend that gave me the Spem EXP-MEM 512k. Autopsy: Various companies offered to upgrade your QL with an internal memory upgrade. This was normally 512K, but some companies also offered a 256K version. The method of upgrade was in two ways: Removal of the existing QL memory chips and replacement to [...]

nIGHTFALL : durexForth v1.3 (Forth language for Commodore 64) [[source]]

Forth, the Language. Forth is a different language. It’s aged and a little weird. What’s cool about it? It’s a very low-level and minimal language without any automatic memory management. At the same time, it easily scales to become a very high-level and domain-specific language, much like Lisp. Compared to C64 Basic, Forth is more [...]

Retro Treasures : Sonic The Hedgehog: The Sega Genesis Years [[source]]

You'll be getting apparently well-preserved boxed cartridges of Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic Spinball.

8-Bit City : Dwarf Fortress Marsh Titan [[source]]

"The Marsh Titan Bilalo Mafiirede Amalafidale has come! A great humanoid composed of solid salt. It has a round shell and it moves deliberately. Beware it's deadly spittle!"
Awesome this should be fun.

8-Bit City : Epic Mead Hall Under Construction [[source]]

A picture of my half-completed epic dining hall in Dwarf Fortress. Notice the fancy statues. This thing should be able to feed my fortress forever. Zug zug!
This hall will last forever, and so will the twitch streaming!

8-Bit City : 8 Hours of Micro Mayhem [[source]]

The Dwarf Fortress non-stop stream continues today! We streamed for 6 hours yesterday and I want to break that record today.
The bridge is down, the food is short, and the drink doesn't exist. Looks like its going to be even more fun than yesterday, so come by my twitch channel and check it out.
I'm going to rock the Dwarf Fortress and the 8-Bit music all day long. 8+ hours of non-stop micro and mayhem.
We are working with over 170 Dwarfs and 8 military squads. I have to tackle to food situation first, and some design flaws are starting to manifest with more dwarfs.

It's gonna be a challenge, but so what?

You can watch on 8-Bit City via this plugin. Probably better to go to twitch though!

8-Bit City : Dwarf Fortress "There Will Be Ghosts" Episodes 3 - 5 [[source]]

Not going down without a fight. The conclusion to my first Dwarf Fortress video. This was a great fortress with lots of steel, it's too bad I didn't master the art of gearing out 2 squads of Dwarfs earlier. I had the metal.
It was fun making these videos, and I hope to make more Dwarf Fortress episodes very soon.My mic is driving my crazy, I need to get a new one ASAP. At least I can turn it off when I'm not talking. I try not to talk to much.

8-Bit City : Real Japanese Version of the Ultima Exodus Song [[source]]

Ultima Exodus is still the best RPG on the NES, and still has some surprises in store.

This blew my mind. A song which I have loved since I was a kid was actually vocalized for reason which remain mysterious to me. I assume it was for an OST release in Japan.

Great song, awesome version, give it a listen! Thanks to SDC for showing me this.
