What's happened to the newsletter? I haven't received any newsletter since May. June's question has never been answered and no new question have been asked. Lack of news, so Feral has no idea what to write in their monthly newsletters?

It may be something to do with the plague.

In Topic: 27" iMac Update: 10th Gen Intel Chips, RDNA GPUs, 10Gb Networking, and more

So I'm in the market for a new desktop (daily driver at home is a late 2015 21.5" Retina iMac). I'd like to get another Intel machine before the Great Extinction Event, and was originally looking to get another 21.5" iMac, because my desk space is limited (seriously) and I like the 21.5" machines. Also, I thought I'd never be able to afford a 27 incher.

Anyway, current H. Ed store prices - 21.5" 4K, 3.0 GHz 6-core 8th-gen i5, 16 Gb RAM, 1 Tb SSD, Radeon Pro 560X - $1939.00 (exc. tax).

27" 5K, 3.3 GHz 6-core 10th-gen i5, 8 Gb RAM (user expandable), 1 Tb SSD, Radeon Pro 5300 - $2079.00 (exc. tax).

For $140 I can get a considerably better desktop, which seems like a no-brainer. Yes, I'll increase the RAM at some stage, but that can wait.

"So that was the weirdest and most psychedelic experience I've had, playing a game.

Older readers may remember Llamasoft's Jeff Minter (pictured), developer of the legendary, acid-trip games  Attack of the Mutant Camels, Space Giraffe and Tempest 4000 (and others). I read that he's developing a VR Llamasoft experience...holy hell, can you imagine that? (That article is a couple of years old, and I'm too frightened to follow it up...)

If the 21.5" model was updated I'd definitely be in the market.
