Okay, this took a little longer than a day, because of some last-minute research finds. The Mega Drive still has a handful of licensed software releases that remain undumped, and today I'll be filling one of those holes: Wonder MIDI, developed (according to the back of the box and a message in the ROM) by Game Arts (of Lunar and Grandia fame) and published by Victor (the company known outside Japan as JVC) in Japan sometime in 1992 exclusively for the Wondermega.

Oh wow, it's been a while since I last posted something here. The pandemic absolutely wrecked my productivity, and when I did get it back up to something workable, that productivity was mainly confined to work.

The game in question is Gensou Senki Kokou no Ryuu: Crying Dragon (幻想戦記孤高の龍 Crying Dragon). The game was originally announced by Sega as part of a line-up of early Sega Mega CD/Sega CD games given to Famitsu and listed in the 28 June 1991 issue, on page 14.

The Go templates post

This post is a slightly revised version of my original "The Go templates post" post that was originally posted 26 May 2014 4:52 PM EDT. The information is still accurate, but does not reflect the past 3 years of changes. Keep this in mind. Be sure to read both the text/template and html/template package docs for the latest info. The Go standard library comes with a powerful template system which allows you to generate structured text from some input data.
