Vintage is the new old : Andy McFadden updates CiderPress and NuLib2 [[source]]


ciderpressAfter several years of quiet bit-rot, CiderPress and NuLib2 have received some new updates

NuLib is a disk and file archive program, similar in principle to PKZIP, and CiderPress provides the features that Apple II enthusiasts need to manage their disk and file archives. Open them, view their contents, and copy files between them. There are other programs that provide access to disk and file archives, but none have as many features or support as many formats as CiderPress.

Both projects are now in git repositories on github.com, migrated from their CVS repositories on sourceforge.net.

Vintage is the new old : After 38 years of glory, the long run of Dr. Dobb’s has come to an end. [[source]]


ddj-logo The Dr Dobb’s Journal hasn’t been printed for a while, and now, with sadness, I learned that even the website is closing down. On a long editorial, Andrew Binstock has confirmed that the website is not generating revenue like it was used to do, despite the big number of visitors.

In one word, revenue. Four years ago, when I came to Dr. Dobb’s, we had healthy profits and revenue, almost all of it from advertising. Despite our excellent growth on the editorial side, our revenue declined such that today it’s barely 30% of what it was when I started. The website will be kept online, but frozen, with no updates. This way we will be able to keep using its huge library, while it is relevant. In no time, it is gonna be a source of vintage information.

Retro Treasures : Unreleased NES Super Turrican Prototype [[source]]


Huge as Turrican and Super Turrican were in Europe, Super Turrican never managed to make it on the NES despite apparently being an essentially completed game. You can find -possibly even buy- all the proof you need over at this NES Super Turrican Prototype eBay auction. It's a NTSC version of Super Turrican on a 22 years old EPROM cartridge from SEIKA / Manfred Trenz for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The thing is quite obviously extremely rare and thus expensive, though it does admittedly look rather impressive. Seller ships worldwide.

Australian Retro Gamer : Video Gaming Film Of The Year: From Bedrooms To Billions [[source]]


During the pioneering days of video gaming and home computing, our industry may have been small when compared to Japan, the US and UK, but we were (and still are) proud of our gaming heritage – we will always be proud of John De Margheriti’s Micro Forté and Alfred Milgrom’s Melbourne House and Beam Software amongst the […]
