Can't wait for it ^^

I've a special history with this game. Firstly it's from Belgium, where I come from. Then, I just loved the game, the universe, the story, ... and I had the chance to have some of its creator as teacher during my degree.

So I'm not totally objective, but still .. can't wait ^^

A while ago I started collecting Computer History museums in a custom Google Map, to help me in my travels. Thanks to many external contributions, this map grew and at the suggestion of +Ed S it now deserves its own post in this community.

Please tell me if you know of places missing, and I will update the map accordingly.

Outcast is one of the most famous games that ever came out of Belgium (together with the Divinity series from Larian Studios).

Probably the best programmer-friendly explanation of the DFT I've ever read.

Please encourage developers to make quality couch co-op games by buying this one, it's well worth the asking price.

My girlfriend and myself haven't had this much fun with a video game in a while, we highly recommend it!

Another scientist who made fundamental contributions to the fields of computing and education died. Please read the comments on the original post from +Maurici Carbo there are lots of interesting bits of information in there.

I am just back from a short road trip through England and Scotland, and I am now all ready for some comparative tasting :-) I still don't understand why ginger beer is so hard to find around here in Belgium.

Don't be surprised by the lack of Old Jamaica, this one is the only brand I can find at my local supermarket.

It's been a while since I last posted about my collection. But recently one of my students gave me a Texas Instruments TI-30 that his father was getting rid of, and I thought about taking a family picture of the classic TI calculators in my possession.

As you can see, the SR-50A was quite popular. Most of the machines on the picture were bought for one or two euros a piece, came with a pouch, and some still had their manual. If you find any of these little wonders at the bottom of a drawer, please don't trash them. Give them away (or sell them), it should be rather easy to find someone who cares.
