RMKO June 2009

The second edition of the HomeCon was very funny again. This time there were more people present then last time, so it is spread, that this is a nice meeting to meet different retro computer groups. Thanks again to the organizers for letting this happen.

This time the Rhein Main Kick Offers where allready 3. Frank, Jan and I. Next time hopefully Juan will join us, to that we will be complete. Again we played a lot of matches, but also played other games. Frank for example was exited to play his old favorite Rally Speedway on a Atari XL. And Jan and I played some Speedball 1 matches at the end.

Here are the Results of the matches:

Frank – Thorsten
4:2, 7:0, 4:2, 6:2, 6:2, 4:2, 6:2, 6:0, 5:1, 6:3, 8:2, 8:4

Frank – Jan
9:0, 10:0, 10:0, 4:0, 14:0, 10:0

Jan – Thorsten
0:4, 0:1, 0:3, 2:1 !!!, 1:3, 1:1, 0:2, 0:2

Ok, once again no chance against Frank, but my defence was better than last time, and also I scored much more goales. The matches against Jan were all hard fightes, and Jan also won one game and scored a draw in another one. So everybody was satisfied in the end I think.

Next HomeCon will be in November I heard, hopefully not at the same date as the Kick Off WC in Austria.

Metal Link weekend 2

After playing a lot the days before I was a little demotivated , because I did not broke my own record. So it was good to read, that ChrisTos broke my record, so I get motivated again. And today I get a really nice score and overthrown ChrisTos. Level 21 is still hard, but this time I nearly passed it, only 2 lines were missing. You need some luck I think o pass the level, but maybe next time I have more of it.

I also found out, that the game only needs one hand so the other could be perfect used to dring a good dutsch beer I got from the Outline for example.
