    You -- and we -- managed it, though!

    Another good one, even if we did spend nearly as much time talking about racing cars as about ponies. :p Always a pleasure to catch up with you folks, and I'm sorry @Dodj was laid low and unable to join us. The terrifying relentlessness of @Pigasus's motorised pig was something to behold! A distressing lack this time of people being creeped out by the table full of plushies, though. We'll have to try harder! ;)

    Edit: since Grand Prix Legends came up, here's a driver's-eye view of the heavily updated Spa that came out a couple of years ago. Bear in mind that this is a 1998 sim that had no real lighting effects -- all the shadows and textures are hand-drawn. It also has none of the original Papyrus track sections -- every little thing was made from scratch, and it's much more faithful to the real 1967 track than the original game's version, huge fun as that is. It took something like eight years for the team to complete, since easy editing tools for GPL don't really exist. Sure, it doesn't exactly look amazing compared with 2017 games, but it's a huge step up from the original.



    (Incidentally, GPL has a 36 fps maximum, which back in the late 1990s was considered fine. It would normally look smoother than this, though, as the guy has all the graphics cranked up to max in order to show all the details.)

    Today's minimeet has just finished -- as my train isn't for a while, I'm in The Hive using a library PC. Hence this very fast feedback post!

    Thank you to everyone who came along today: even though we only had four people (so not the smallest meet ever!) it was still a very pleasant afternoon, with a lot of interesting discussion on a nice range of topics, mostly pony but with the odd diversion into Formula 1 or Robot Wars. I even won a Chase the Ace game, though sadly it was an unofficial quickfire (two lives) version. :p

    Another nice meet; thank you to everyone. :) One day the Power of Fluttershy shall actually work when it comes to winning CtA. Close today, but not close enough!

    That blasted Discord song keeps coming into my head for some reason... ;)

    On the way home, I saw a van labelled something like "Missing Pet Location Service". I have to be honest, my first thought was "We could do with one of those in the game!"

    As usual, great to see regulars and semi-regulars again -- and to meet @Somerset Cider for the first time. :) It's been so long since I've been able to talk that much about MLP in person without having to worry about spoilers! "The Army of Scootaloos" does sound a bit like a fanfic title, now I think about it... ;)

    Also, teacup.
