The weekend of february 14th to 16th, we all went to Gothenburg to play with old computers.
Check out the releases right here!
We've had a busy week over here, and as things start to return to normal and we're catching up on email and twitter and irc mentions, it seems everyone and their mother announced the dates and details of their parties. So, let's do a quick list of some of the highlights;
The website for nvscene 2014 just went Live, and with it lots of information on the event - tickets, compos, and speakers for the seminars.
And the seminars demand special attention - the lineup is pretty stellar;

Without telling us, those sneaky people organizing 7DX held a 2013 edition in the middle of december, with a number of tasty releases. Thanks to one of our irc users (hi wysiwtf!) for pointing it out, so we could take action.
Results are already in, and results.txt has been uploaded to scene.org - now everyone go fill in info, add screenshots and awesomeify it.
Despite being a smaller, "lite" edition, DiHalt 2014 Lite this weekend had lots and lots of ZX Spectrum releases, plus a few from other platforms now. Results are all in place, and screenshots and downloads are slowly filling in.
Check out some Spectrum goodness :)
