    I am delighted to announce that I have just uploaded the latest
    versions of some MM/JSW web-pages that I have been working on for
    ages. They can be found at http://geocities.com/andrewbroad/spectrum/willy/

    * List of MM/JSW Games: see below for details.

    * Download Page: I've updated the preview of Afrikaan, and added a
    preview-page for JSW64: Flash Manic Miner.

    * Quirky Features: I did most of this update two years ago, but kept
    it to myself because it contained secret features that I wanted to use
    before anyone else, and which have since surfaced in JSW64MM: James
    Bond.

    * Nomen Clature: a MM/JSW Glossary: I started this two years ago, but
    have barely touched it since, so I might as well upload it now, even
    though I haven't written definitions for half the terms yet.


    List of MM/JSW Games

    This is a moment I want to savour, because it's been exactly a year
    since I last updated it, and I know it's a very valuable document to
    the MM/JSW community if I may say so myself. ;-)

    It seems fitting that I am uploading the first edition of the List
    that includes my 2007 game JSW64MM: James Bond on 28th May, which is
    the 100th birthday of Bond's arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and
    would also have been Ian Fleming's 100th birthday, had he not died.

    The new edition also lists all the other MM/JSW games (to the best of
    my knowledge) that have been released in the last year:

    * The DrUnKeN mAsTeR released bugfixes of his 48K JSW games The
    DrUnKeN mAsTeR!!!, Fantasy World WillY and The F***ed Internet
    Trilogy.

    * The DrUnKeN mAsTeR released Holy S***!!!

    * Hervé Ast released Willy in the Islands of Mystery (Part 1:
    Exploration).

    * The DrUnKeN mAsTeR released Willy - The Man Who Sold the World.

    * Paul Equinox Collins released It's Wet Jelly.

    I have also updated all the Titbits and Future Games sections, and
    added several entries to Other Games of MM/JSW Interest.

    Interesting quirky features. I was particularly surprised by this in JSW2
    (which, admittedly, nobody edits): "You can jump straight up on the leftmost
    cell of a left-conveyor."

    The Alchemist Research link seems to be broken: it goes to a page with an
    updated link on it, but that link leads to an expired domain.

    Eq.
