A 'thank you' to Sorg is in order

Unread post by lamarax »

Much has traversed in all those years; we've seen new cores and we've debated minuscule things, but the man who set it all up gets no love.

I'd like to thank Sorgelig for what he's been doing 'behind the scene' for us.

Apart from his fantastic FPGA skills, I really appreciate how strict Sorg is, which is why MiSTer works as well as it does today.

I like how he doesn’t give in to the bullshit demands of today’s entitled internet users.

I've seriously begun learning soldering, electronics, and programming mostly due to Kitrinx and Sorgelig, so thanks to them both.

yes indeed, thank you Sorgelig.
also big thanks for all the other core contributors as well, there are really good cores already for the system, but still so many in development!

wondering how many systems are still left apart from the arcade boards which are numerous, and how far the de10 can go before it will be replaced by a new chip in the future?

Sorg has 650 patrons right now. By comparison, jotego has nearly 2500.
There are a lot more mister users than 650.
Come on, let's bump the numbers up for sorg, min tier is only £2 a month in my currency, you've no excuse.

thank you sorg. tbh it's crazy the mister is one of the best ways to play retro games, and outside of paying for the hardware, all of the software included is completely free. that's crazy to think.

I noticed that a $100 USD clone DE-10 Nano is available now (soon?). My gut says that's almost completely due to the demand for the MiSTer coupled with the limited supply of OEM boards (and the price increases over the last few years). MiSTer is creating new jobs in a tough economy!

Thank you, Sorg, for your dedication to this excellent project!

This is my favorite open source project of all time. Thank you, Sorgelig. You changed retro gaming forever.
