Is this a remarkable video? Well, it is to me because it features Sim, which is one of the only games I've finished, on any platform, ever!

But the video isn't of me playing and completing the entire game in l337 fashion (not sure I'm up to it these days) -- rather, it documents a glitch in the game that you can exploit to access rooms in "illegal" ways. (Is that a useful thing to be able to do? I don't know. I can't remember!)

In the video I use a cheat to trigger the glitch but I think you can trigger it "legally" too, if you're good enough and patient enough to gain the requisite number of extra lives (hearts which you can fly through).

Is this the first time the glitch has been documented? Now, that would be remarkable(ish)...

Ben Heck is making an 8-bit SBC based on a Z80, 64k RAM, and an Arduino Leonardo for I/O and programming the OS into RAM on boot up. There are two parts to the series so far, links to both parts below. Looks interesting.

RetroManCave is live streaming on YouTube at 3pm today GMT (15/02/2019). This is the final instalment of his recent BBC Micro series. Sounds like the stream will run for at least a couple of hours, as it's due to end sometime after a charity auction of one of the Beebs he recently restored (auction ends 5pm GMT).

Charity auction RMC restored BBC Micro Model B. 100% of proceeds to MIND, in case anyone is interested in bidding.

The Retro Hour podcast with an interview with Steve Furber:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gj8xQIlghuE

The interview starts about 29-30 minutes into the episode. Not a massive amount of new information (especially if you've listened to the recent RetroManCave episode), but still interesting.
