Shorts, because it's summertime. The sun's shining, body's get tanned .. well, except for us MSX geeks. We stay at home, inside, glued to the monitor. But still, in shorts. If you were outside, taking a sun bath, you might have missed all the good stuff. No worries, we do a recap for you.

Well, the @wolf sees:
- ugly URLs at random
- a date code in the subject line that doesn't make much sense (e.g. it serves zero purpose)
- a missed newspost opportunity with the Metal Gear thingy. Franchises like Metal Gear, Final Fantasy etc. etc. transcend MSX and are important.

On the upside: there's at least now a date-code in the title, and who knows, some day Google and the rest of the planet searches for shrt nws instead of short news or MSX news.

So, the @wolf says: "let's not do the shitstorm again" Hannibal
