Xyphoe did organize a Alan Michael Sugar drawing contest with Paint, I let you see the results. Congratulations to all who did submit a drawing.
Jon Ritman, the author of Batman and Head over Heels (and others Amstrad CPC games) was interviewed in 2016 by Retro Video Gamer.
It took me time before starting reading this book, but now it's done, the official biograhy of and by Lord Alan Michael Sugar.
I did read already his other biographies :
- Alan Sugar, the Amstrad Story by David Thomas
- Sir Alan Sugar, the biography by Charlie Burden
The first one gave insights about his childhoold but nothing about his football years. Whereas the second one was introducing his foootball years. WYSIWYG give a lot more details about his childhood, the first steps which made him the man we all know and also a lot more on his football years. Honestly, I did appreciate this book and I recommend its reading. The only regret and it's purely personal, the book has a part about the Amstrad CPC computers but nothing about the CPC 664 which was my first computer, not very important though.
The year 2019 is near the end, it gave a lot of good things for the Amstrad computers, not only for the CPC, one of the very last being the Toki beta by AmstradGGP for example.
So, let's wish at least as much good if not more for the hear 2020. And personnally I wish you and people you care for a good and happy new year.
I do think that Robin Hood was using already in his time an Amstrad CPC, and that I think he would be proud of these following arrows fired today (4 x 10 et 2 x 9), especially the arrow feathers :
Better but purely accidental (last 20th November) :

On the 8th November a book will be released about the Amstrad history in Spain, written by Jesús Martínez del Vas : Queremos Su Dinero (we want your money). You will learn more about Indescomp, Amstrad Spain and José Luis Domínguez (founder of Indescomp in 1982).
The book will be showed for the first time the 5th November at the Fnac of Callao (Madrid) with José Luis Dominguez himself.
Personnally I will buy this book, a good way to ameliorate my spanish. I dont see it yet on Amazon or Fnac though at the moment, so no pre-order.
