Quick announcement: I'll be attending Vintage Computer Festival Midwest this year!
Not as an exhibitor or anything, just gonna be wandering the area and hanging out September 14-15. Say hi if you're there! I may or may not have some LGR Things with me too, heh.
Admission is free, too! More info for the curious:

It's April, and that means LGR Edutainment Month begins on Friday!
Got a few fascinating titles to cover this year. One puzzle platformer, one typing tutor, and one... algebra thing.

Happy Christmas Eve! Hope y'all have a relaxing one. And to those working in emergency services, food, retail, and other jobs where your presence is deemed necessary: thank you.
I planned to have the final LGR holiday video out today but my main retro capture PC dying last week really quashed productivity. Got it fixed though, so hopefully things will be back on track soon.

Me: Yay I've got a video almost done for Monday! Don't fail me now, computer!
..oh. So yeah, as a result Friday's video won't be the planned game review. That'll be next week if I can get things repaired in time.
I've got a bunch of donations from you lovely folks though, so expect an unboxing Friday instead 😀

Celebrating a million subscribers with a 16 year single malt scotch, an absurdly good steak, and great company.

Headed outta town for Thanksgiving! I hope that those of you celebrating have a relaxing and tasty holiday.
No LGR episode this Friday as a result, especially since Monday's video took all my time over the weekend. But I've got a nifty Oddware and possibly another thing lined up for next week👍

Using my IBM 5170 PC AT to play monochrome MS-DOS games using an original ISA Hercules card plugged into a Cyclone IV-based FPGA that converts the TTL signal to 70hz VGA and emulates amber P3 phosphor, passing through an HDMI scaler for use on a 21:9 ultrawide display.
Because it's my job. And upcoming videos require "research."
