    Dr Ashen retweeted the link to it. Dr Ashen has many followers.
    At this rate, this will get more hits than any MLP arrangement I've done!

    Not done the piece I was planning to - arranging that is a pain.
    Have this instead.

    Necroposting is magic.


    I started this aaaaaaages ago. As in late 2012.
    I'm never going to finish it, so have the hot off the press recording of as far as I got in it.

    Yay, a new post here! Maybe I'll even have to dig out the Beeb again. But it's really nice to see that Spectrum/Octavia pairing* again. It's been too long.

    * Not that sort of pairing. Well, probably not. This fandom might do anything...

    I should probably do another Spectrum/Derpy pairing again at some point, but there's not been that much music that's inspired me to do that - or has been too awkward to do.

    Here's something I did on my 16k. Just finished yesterday - I had two Speccies die on me while working on it! I managed to bring my +1 back to life by soldering in some new capacitors and a voltage coil.



    Now, I'm not much of a programmer. I could load the music and display images, but I couldn't for the life of me figure how to get the music to play without it clearing the screen. To that end, I've dubbed over the loading hisses with my finished track. ^_^ It makes for an entertaining visual, at least!

    I just love my Speccies. They're just fun to play with!

    I've tried many a time to get some graphics on mine, but I've just not managed to.

    As for getting it to keep the image up, the usual BASIC bootloader technique should do it

    10 LOAD "" SCREEN$
    15 LOAD "" SCREEN$
    20 LOAD ""

    As long as the next thing doesn't call CLS, the screen should be preserved

    I can't remember the trick for hiding the Program: Maincode bit when it does the LOAD, but you can use INK, PAPER and PRINT AT to put it somewhere where it won't get in the way too much.

    Mondays...
    Why would anyone look forward to Mondays?

    (drumroll)

    Monday is my next day off!
    And to celebrate this, I shall finish the track I've been working on since May. A very small number of you know which treat is in store.

    It's got ponies, it's my longest track to date, it's coming on Monday!
