Issue 103 done. Bit of work that one with 20-game compilation, back to the feature and readers top 100 (only entered the ones with text)

Getting very near the end now though it's a bit depressing with the letters page full of people saying bye because they are upgrading etc.

Starting issue 104. C65 EXISTS! http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 13 Nov

Back To The Feature 1991, Satanic film planning department still up to their old tricks. A good few score boxes missing. Same with BTTF 1990

I've been a busy bunny on Twitter! ( https://twitter.com/ZZAPRRAP )

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

Starting the last ever official issue, 106. No full price or budget reviews... Not so great for a games review magazine!

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

Poor last Back To The Feature & also a round-up of prev 15 issues, but Mel Croucher made a return to help Lloyd: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 6&page=042

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

And that's that! Out with a whimper rather than a bang. Soon after, my childhood cat, Zoe died and then C= went bust. Bit of a crap period!

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

But wait!! There's more, 8 years later and out comes the fan based issue 107!: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 7&page=001 Rather good it was too!

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

It also had an article by me in it http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 7&page=014 … Edited to within an inch of its life by a certain editor though @gordonhoughton ;)

In relation to issue 107, you can get various PDFs of it here: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/zzap107/zzap107misc.html

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

It's a wrap in issue 107. Nice to see most of the website mentioned in it are still around: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

But wait, there's more!! The Def Tribute to Zzap!64, done by some crazy Dutchman in 2005... :) http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... ?article=7

Reading the Wizball ZzapBack in the Def Tribute issue. I gave it 99%, kinda cool being on the same page as @GaryPenn Still my fave C64 game

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

Reading about the Cult of Zzap and what do you know, the website is still there! http://cult-of-zzap.org/ :-D

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

Well, I'm finished at last. Only took about 5 years (with some long gaps) but I got there! Next step is 2 check the data for errors etc 1of2

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

and then move the companies data into a separate table and then start writing the code to display it all. 2of2

I haven't been posting the tweets here for a while, mainly since they have been retweets and the like. Although there is a lot going on at the moment for the birthday:
