Not RISC Awards

Postby Elminster » Tue Jun 20, 2017 8:50 pm

Just a thought have we thought about doing a *. Awards? Either just 8bit or seperate 8/16bit categories. As seems to me the 8 bit machines dont get a huge amount of exposure on the RISC OS Awards. Winner of each category gets a bag of PSU capacitors maybe.

16+8+some more.

Slip of the tongue, just watching video about 68000, although some argue that is really 32 bit and not 16.

Not false, at the cost of additional cycles.
Link please, can be interesting if instructive.

The 68000 being 32 bit? That was actually an interview with Bill Mensch on the ANTIC Atari podcast. Ep 96 18/11/2015.
