But I notice there's no answer to the question: How much vomit could Chuck Vomit chuck if Chuck Vomit could chuck vomit?
Thank you.

In answer to the vomit question:

Given a time interval (t), integrate the function [f(w)] allowing for acceleration (a) and velocity (v).
Drawing a graph, it'll be the area under the curve.

Alternatively, a rough guess to the quantity of vomit would be: twice half it's volume.

I'm going to plagiarise that last line in my day-to-day conversation. :mrgreen:

News to me.

What, they're designing, writing and laying it out at this meet?

Impressive. Most impressive.

Would be very impressive all right, even if the meeting is meant to take place over 7 days.

Sounds like great news, but don't let this halt a 108. The more the better :D

I would hope that this commemorative issue will be a shelf release with 100+ pages this time. Similar to The ZX Spectrum/Commodore 64 (30th Anniversary Special) book. I'd also love to know which reviewers they're managing to rope in :)

Well I don't know what the GameCity "issue" will come to. The site doesn't have any more info on it, could just be hype or a leaflet size issue.

Well, I don't see a point in a 'celebration' type issue, particularly a half baked 'leaflet', if that's the case. That was done perfectly (brilliantly) well with Rob's RG issue.

An issue 108 should be a continuation of ZZAP (reviews, news, etc).

In my opinion.

I e-mailed them about it when it was first announced, never heard back...

I entered a comment about it on their blog announcing the event, but the comment hasn't even been published yet, let alone a reply.

Looks like a nod to the early 40's design with those red and green background bits!

Keep it up and we'll just be able to "slide in" the text for a new 30th anniversary issue i 2015 :)

Funny how searching for a particular game (research for a Retro Gamer article) led me here...

A new issue for 2015 still on then? :wink:
