so i contacted their support team and told them I'd rather remain blocked than delete the truth.

That's it! Brings back memories of Dreamcast "beat-you-off" tournaments in the early 00s.  

 

 

We just used to be happy with winner stays on...

Mediocre drama anger.

 

remember preston's howls of protest, when I had him blocked

 

well, I took him to task over reporting my posts, and this happened

So, rumour has it that Jonathan Caudwell has ‘left the scene’....

 

confirmed by at least two people who have spoken to him, yes.

 

better than answering questions about how much money he gave to #rcl in order to produce the 80 or so blankety blank prototypes, I guess...

oh, and Chris Merriman, who shilled for RLC via theinquirer.net has been shilling for Planet Computers, with clear evidence of his reward for doing so on the IGG campaign for Planet Computers next device

an investigation was never far behind:

ps. Planet Computers is owned by Fat Janko. 2nd Place Mike Halsey also has a bit of a shilly-rep:

Paul Andrews responds

 

“SRA Letter 20th December 2018

Like many of you I too received correspondence from the SRA today. We do not agree with the decision they have come to, and we will be appealing this decision based on the response from the SRA having asked the process to do so.

We have been asked to raise the matter with the line manager of the person doing the original investigation, which we will of course. We will follow this process and if we are not satisfied we will then move to ask the independent third party as is our right, to take it further still.

I believe this option would be open to anyone who has made a similar complaint and is unhappy also.

We believe in our opinion (and that of two different law firms) this is an incorrect decision, it has not looked at all the facts and has 100% misunderstood and misquoted (in our opinion) the letters from Chris Smith via our lawyers in the matter of the shareholders agreement. Categorically the shareholders agreement was not repudiated by us. Categorically 75% of the shareholders (all of them apart from David Levy) confirm the shareholders agreement cannot and has not been repudiated. We have also now resent (this afternoon) the appropriate letters/correspondence to the SRA in this matter, and we also took advice from our lawyers before this response/message to you all.

We are also bringing to the SRA's attention other associated matters which we feel have not been taken into consideration despite them being highlighted to them prior to today.

We will not comment further in this matter currently, but we will use the mechanism as above, as all parties have the option of, by asking to escalate it with the original investigator at the SRA, and this then being referred to their line manager.”

You mean you could clarify this whole situation with one single post and expose the real haters but can't because you'd be betraying confidences of those in the scene who know what really went on? 8-)

 

Oh no, you mean you can't figure out how a phone works ;)

As you were.

THEC64 Update - 24th December 2018

We are so excited to finally reveal to you the first photos of the full-size pre-production prototype of ‘THEC64’, complete with a fully functional integrated keyboard, giving you a taster of what’s coming in 2019.

These photos have come direct from our manufacturing partners. Small modifications here and there are likely as we move forward, but - as you can see – it’s real, it exists, and it’s coming as we promised!

In a couple of the photos, the full-size pre-production prototype is positioned next to THEC64 Mini to show their comparative sizes. Also, the key legends you can see are not yet finalised but hopefully you can get a good idea of where we are heading and what has been achieved so far.
We aren’t revealing the full and final specification quite yet, as we don’t want to spoil all the surprises. For a variety of reasons, we also can’t yet confirm the delivery date, but it will be as soon in 2019 as can be achieved. As always, we will keep you all updated with any news on this as soon as we are able to.

To round off the year, all of us at Retro Games Ltd want to thank you all for supporting and believing in us. We hope that our backers and customers who pre-ordered before late September 2017 have enjoyed their FREE THEC64 Mini and exclusive poster set. We hope you are all still enjoying using the Mini while you wait for the full-size THEC64 to arrive, especially in light of the new functionality added by the recent firmware upgrades.

Finally, season’s greetings to you all, and we hope you are as excited about THEC64 and what’s going to happen in 2019 as we are! Thank you.

(Please note this is a prototype version made by our manufacturing partners and final versions will only incorporate our trademarks not third party ones)

This is what I was wanting to see, great that they’re bringing it out in 2019.

 

i also presume that comment about trademarks means an interesting “Commodore” key ;-)
