Happy new retro-year everyone!
Like the nachzehrer which lives a half rotten life chewing its own shroud in the grave, during the last six months Sir Arthur’s Den has been a half-dead blog – no “status update” or new post, but a non-stop attention by the owner to static management of the (few) legit comments and the (too many!) spam comments collected daily by Defensio quarantine. As 2012 comes, Sir Arthur has finally decided to come out of the grave – shroud or not – and try to put his hands on these pages again hoping to succeed.
The… hum, prolonged “pause” that kept me away from the site is justified, for some reasons, unfounded for others. Simply said, I will remember the second part of 2011 as one of the most bizarre periods of my life, almost always unpleasant, maybe useful and even enlightening. If I survived and I am still here, in short, I really can try to go on and start to connect the dots on the map again from where I stopped the last time. The strange thing is that I don’t remember where I was, the last time…
So said, enough with words play: it’s 2012 baby, the year of the Apocalypse in the bulky tome of the Apocalypses to come (from 2800 before Christ onward…) and Sir Arthur’s Den tries to act like a digital Lazarus coming back to life. Happy new year to all the readers and merry whatever you want. As you can see from the attached photo, I started the year under the star of retrogaming with four (pricey) purchases that joined my growing library of seasoned digital works 😛
