Real Time Worlds gone into admin

News

Realtime Worlds have gone into admin. No direct relevance to SAM, but this was the pairing of our very own Colin Macdonald and DMA Designs (who licensed Lemmings to SAM) and would probably not be the company it is (was?) today without our little blue footed friend.

BBC News story here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-11003456

And nice interview with Colin here where he talks a little SAM: http://www.square-go.com/feature/970

Best of luck for the future for all those involved. And thanks to Colin for all the great stuff he did for the SAM community (although I never realised (from the interview) he was involved in the Manic Miner licence - thought that was Dave, Bob and SAMCo?

Site Maintenance

Sorry, looks like something in the site stopped working when the server's PHP subsystem was upgraded from version 4 to version 5. All the pages are safely stored, but the system is failing to display them properly. I'm working on fixing it.
