It's hot, lets go to the pool


29 degrees celcius, it's hot here in Coutances after the results of the contests, so because I am thinking about all visitors (at least me) who could use some water, here are 2 old photos which will provide some.

Then, you will find the entrance with CPCists trying to make the new demo which will put in flame the Batman forever demo.

New demo coming out ?

So here is the new home of the ReSeT #0 meeting.

New room of the ReSeT #0 meeting in Coutances

Here is the part of the room where most of the work is done (teeths chewing).

Eat or work on CPC ? Eat of course !

I wont say that some people in this meeting are using a C64 instead of a CPC, I promise...

WTF, they are using a C64 !

And of course we have our own cinema room which was playing Batman forever a bit later.

Want to go to cinema tonight dear ?

Welcome back to Coutances ! Home of the ReSeT meeting


Welcome back to Coutances, home of the ReSeT #0 meeting, organized by the tireless Eliot. I arrived this Friday just in time for lunch.

Sadly Eliot either doesn't own a watch or he still need to learn to use one, meals are good but never at the good hour that old men like me needs. So the meal started at 3:00pm with the first persons arrived.

At least Eliot has one big quality, he is very courageous : he isnt afraid of Escherichia coli, just look at part of our meal.
