Scenial returns - as a Polish online magazine. Akira, former member of Pulse, S!P PL and Beans, who was the head of the Polish division of the Scenial diskmag, had a break of his scene life due to health issues several years ago. Recently he started visiting demo parties in Poland again, including C64 and Atari parties, and had the idea to write articles, which had always been great fun for him. So, in autumn 2010 he started Polish Scenial, an online magazine about the Polish demoscene, scene culture, old 8 and 16 bit machines, with invitations, party reports and discussions. If you are able to read Polish, check it out at www.scenial.pl.

New Desire Slideshow in 2012! Forcer of Desire sent in the following news: "The name of the slideshow is still unknown. Code: 0x3a, Music: SunSpire. It will be probably released at @party 2012 in Boston. I think this slideshow will be made in memory of my good friend/scener Darek Kirszling - DeeKay of Grinders, who was murdered in 2003. He was only 23. I did my 1st slideshow with him and we released in under Grinders. He was also the main editor of the Tankard magazine which Adok reviewed in Hugi a few years ago."
