Russell J Marks - is anyone in contact?

Post by kpalser » Mon Jul 02, 2018 7:41 pm

Hi Folks,

I'd like to get in contact with Russell Marks, the author of the Z81 emulator (his code base was a starting point for other modern emulators):
http://www.svgalib.org/rus/z81.html

He doesn't seem to have been active since October 2004 according his change log. And his email address in the file has a domain that no longer seems active. Googling hasn't got me anywhere so far. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Kevin

I finally made contact with Russell:

“Well I haven't done much programming for some years now, I kind of mostly trailed off with that around 2005/6. To be honest I was finding it a lot harder to do as I got older, and when it was just a hobby really it's hard not to drift onto other things. Probably the most publicly visible thing I've done for the last decade or so is posting weekly on uk.games.video.misc on Usenet. :-)
