Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

I’ve been using ComicGlass for years, a little bit clunky I suppose but soon got used to it. No ads, but been so long I don’t remember if there’s a free version without them, only a few quid for full version.

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

I'm happy with the timing so the original cover's seen print on the Zzap annual.

But the book will be great regardless!

Re: The64 - Computer And Handheld Console

A definite early-ish adoption for me. Got a couple of USB keyboards so don't think I'll hold out till the full-size version.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I got a 128GB micro SD card that should last a while. Kingston branded one was £25 from eBay.

I don't get on with screen protectors so I bought a USB-C extender cable. Switch doesn't need to go into the dock, I just run the cable between the two.

But yes, back to the Kickstarter. Much as I love Rob's work, I'm not really that interested in a bunch of covers by other people in this case.
The Hubbard book can be pledged for by itself, if that appeals. A bit pricey, tho.

Re: Project Hubbard (Rob Hubbard Kickstarter) is live!

I'd consider 'stuff' if more options are added later, but £20 for a mug is OTT, haven't got a C64 connected or emulated, don't want vinyl or tape etc.

But Commodore cliche that I am, Hubbard's my fave chiptune composer. I'm getting a Hubbard T-shirt through the Sidologie Kickstarter!

Re: Project Hubbard (Rob Hubbard Kickstarter) is live!

The add-ons are steep, but I don't have any problem with the main pledges.
Happily backed the £95 level.

Re: The Commodore Story documentary (Kickstarter)

Congrats, Rocky! I've been a superbacker for a while, but I don't know what qualifies someone.

'Commodore Vic20: A visual history' arrived yesterday -- I've never even played on one!

Re: The Commodore Story documentary (Kickstarter)

I'm practically a Kickstarter Addict, especially for retro gaming projects, so I backed this a while ago.

Have barely looked at my NES Visual Compendium that arrived last week, or indeed many of the previous similar projects, or any of the retro audio ones...
