  • Blog Post: What Makes A Gaming Machine Tick?

    I found this arcade game, the world's largest , at scifi.com this morning. You need to climb up on stepladders for crying out loud!

    A recent post in the XP Embedded forum highlighted an issue related to running vb scripts on Embedded runtimes that I meant to blog about... so here it is!
