    It was only launched recently but is now functional ...

    Over the years various boxes of Twin Galaxies material have ended up in the safe hands of various individuals. I intend to take possession of this in order for it to be properly catalogued and preserved. Recently, with the valued help of people including RTM and Walter, we have identified the locations ...

    Thanksdatagod, danman1234 thanked this post
    Nearly 20 years ago, while working for the BBC, I was lucky enough to be having dinner with Carolyn Porco, head of the imaging team for the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn. The spacecraft had only been launched the previous year, and had recently performed its first flyby of Venus, picking up velocity ...

    I found a couple of pictures (posted below) of my first dealings with TG at DreamHack Winter 2004 in Sweden. Back then I was full time for GWR and set myself the task of bringing back the relationship between TG and GWR.

    We now have a nice selection of active disputes, and a bunch of accepted ones. The discussion and evidence in each one has allowed us to narrow down the questions and focus on specific issues, many of which were unclear beforehand.

    Some disputes have put the spotlight on wider issues and ...

    Dear Twin Galaxies community,

    Thank you for all the messages and conversations so far. As the dispute system has been such a hot topic I thought I would respond here to make my intentions clear.

    Every score that has passed the TGSAP will be regarded equally.

    Dear all,

    Twin Galaxies has a massive presence but it’s a small organisation. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a meaningful title for your new staffer (that’s me!).

    Do absolutely bear in mind that I am going to be heavily involved ...
