OCTOBER-NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 1998

1 October 1998

This will be the last update until late next week... I have to finish an University exam, so I'll not have enough time to spend in front of my keyboard...
Not a big update tonight (all CD-I material will be online next week), anyway I decided to add some more info on every page: I'll soon add something I call "Collector Notes". These notes will include rarity info, availability and price; some tips on where to find the various systems. Collector Notes are now only on Game Boy Light and related page but will be added to every page in the next few weeks. Another new thing: "Last Update" informations on Index page are now below the main index.
There is now a new small and simple section called "
The Future". I prefer not to comment it: let me know what you think of it!
Now a statement: All the informations on these pages were taken from different sources (magazines, online sites, newspapers, official documentation from the maker of the different products, etc.) but can be not correct and/or complete, since many times things change fastly... so here is my request: if you find something not true, if you have additions or corrections to the informations I published or if you want to make me know your point of view, write me an e-mail: my address is:

brizio@sisinfo.it

I promise I'll answer all the mail I'll receive in a small lapse of time (not more than 2/3 days). Thanks a lot!
New section:
The Future
New: Collector Notes will soon be added to every page!
Hardware section:
Nintendo Game Boy Light and related (in this page there is also the (almost) complete list of every color in which Game Boy system and accessories were marketed, and also some interesting facts and pics on the oldest system actually on the market).
