Author of the excellent (darn him!) Retrogamer article that really piqued peoples interest once again in the Multi-system.
Craig has written an article just for us describing how and why he came to
write about the Multi-system and has described the efforts he went to to find
the information. It spookily parallels my efforts (but he got paid for it -
where did I go wrong? ;)
He has also very kindly provided the full text of his article which included segments that had to be cut for brevity. They get their public release here for the first time. One of the most interesting omissions is an interview with John Matheison one of the 3 members of Flare and a very significant figure in the development of computers and games machines of the era.

Programmer, Author - what doesn't this man do? Simon wrote the clever technical stuff in the ACE article that really went to town on the Multi-system, he produced the diagrams that show as effectively as a thousand words could how the Multi-system worked. He has a very strong technical background and as such is immensely qualified to comment on the architecture of the machine. Here are his very in-depth thoughts and memories of the machine.
