Столько времени прошло, а новый Burn The Lighter так и не вышел! Исправляем ситуацию, причём в совершенно новом формате.
Пока что в цикле Better Than Raw содержится только два выпуска, но в этом месяце планируется расширить его до четырёх или пяти, так что регулярность выхода можно гарантировать с полной уверенностью. :)

Robee Shepherd has released a new utility MinnaMicroZ80 v0.21.
Short info from the World Of Spectrum:
This is a Windows command line utility for converting Z80 snapshots so they can be restored on a real Spectrum from a Microdrive cartridge. It also includes a BASIC loader utility that you should install to each cartridge, and that supports multiple games on a single cartridge.
This game was written as a fan-based game, modelled after the original Knightmare on MSX, made by Konami in 1986.
Since that time, numerous clones and conversions of this game have appeared for other systems, but none were made for the ZX Spectrum... Until now.

Guesser has released another useful thing for Spectranet.
This packages up a spectranet rom module with a small installer program so that it can be installed on a spectranet without having to send it over the network with "ethup".
The requirement of using ethup means you can't install a module without using a PC. It also makes it hard if not impossible to install modules into an emulated spectranet using the current implementation in Fuse (you can't send data to fuse using ethup on windows at least).
Tuna has just published a quick heads up about the WoSBridge for Spectranet.
What is it?
Well, it allows you to use the Spectranet to directly search and download from the WoS archives.
How does it work?
You %mount the WoSBridge like any Spectranet drive. Rather than presenting endless directories for you to navigate through, the root directory starts off relatively empty. To search for a game, simply %cd "Your search term". The WoSBridge creates a new directory for that search. If there's only one result, the directory will contain the downloadable files for the matching title. If there are many results, the directory will contain a subdirectory for each title.
Searches only last for the duration of your session. In the root directory there are two directories that show the most recent and most popular titles that have been downloaded by all users.
Endless lives included.

Ugol' Party 2012 (also known as Coal Party 2012) was the third Ukrainian party in the annual series, which takes place in Donetsk, and it has ended those weekends!
It wasn't really big, in fact, but not only the participants had tons of fun at the partyplace, there have also been a couple of prods made by those who couldn't come: one is a little intro by John North and another one is a ProTracker 3 module by me, nix./site.
