Andy told me about the very cool MSX stuff that will be appearing at Back to Basics, so hope I can make it !

Quote ..
On the 4th of April 2015, MSX users Al Brown (Valkyre) and Fernando Garcia from the United Kingdom will be representing the MSX at the Back to Basics multi-platform retro event.

Al and Fernando have been allocated two tables and will be showing the MSX, MSX2, MSX2+ and MSX turbo R along with some nice bits of hardware such as MegaFlashROMs, Playsoniq, the Modulon slot expander, FM PAC, the Moonsound and a stack of the best software, both old and new. On top of this they will be showcasing a new MSX game soon to be available on cartridge.

Apart from pleasantly surprising the UK public with the quality of the MSX, it's also a good opportunity for UK MSX users or any MSX fans that happen to be in the area for a visit and a chat.

You fail it! Your skill is not enough, see you next time, bye-bye!
