A new megapoll! And a nice one too, if you ask me. What do you think was the most important (or funny) MSX news in 2003? Was it the release of MSX Magazine 2? The long awaited Snatcher English translation? Or was it one of the many other (more than 700!!) newsposts we had this year? It is all up to you to decide that.

Have a look at our news archive and submit the links to the newsposts you thought were most interesting here. If you like, you can also tell us why you liked this MSX news a lot. You can send in your nominations until January 3rd, 2004. After that we will (once more) do some genuine mega-poll-battling in our forums. I'm looking forward to the nominations!

Limitations? Well.. only one. The newsposts you nominate have to be posted somewhere in 2003 :P

MSX - 20th anniversary (www.msx.org/newspost1264.html) What can I say.
Snatcher English and Portuguese (www.msx.org/newspost1692.html) Finally!
MSX Resource Center goes Japan (www.msx.org/newspost1652.html) Great story

MSX Resource Center in @rroba magazine (www.msx.org/newspost1061.html)
This one is my personal favourite. Great trip to the MSX fair in Madrid in march. It was already 20 degreeds celcius there. Spring was already beginning. Great people, great city and great tapas. We also had great fun in the hotel. Went for paella with some american chickies, heard the stories of some guy who told everybody he worked for the CIA. Days never to forget. And on the last day before we went home we saw the arroba magazine in the shops with the article about the MSX Resource Center. 4 days of fun. We will visit Spain again, that's for sure.

Why do I think Snout chose only newsposts he submitted? Wink

Probably because Snout also submitted the most postings. It´s harder to find others. Wink
