Check out this new article from the Daily Illuminator that Steve Jackson Games posted:

September 20, 2010: Computers And Tanks (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=September&y=2010&d=20)



http://www.sjgames.com/images/38/3811/sm.jpg (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-23309) http://www.sjgames.com/images/36/3616/sm.jpg (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-8011) A new week means a new batch of e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com) uploads. What do we have this time around?</p>

First we have the latest issue of Space Gamer (http://e23.sjgames.com/search.html?keywords=space+gamer&title_only=1&publisher=&author=&gsys=&genre=&type=&price_lo=0&price_hi=&sortby=alphaAZ) to be uploaded: #39 (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2339). Perhaps it's time dilation; in the '80's the magazine was monthly, but in the 21st century its weekly! Filled with reviews of computer games, shops, and hardware, it does read a bit like a discussion with a time traveler. But the discussions of game design are timeless, and it's a rare magazine that has articles by Steve Jackson, Tim Zahn, and Richard "Lord British" Garriott.</p>

The other upload is also historical: GURPS WWII Classic: Motor Pool (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-8011). Over one hundred vehicles from The War To End All Wars fill the pages, from the M-1A1 Pack Howitzer to the Landsverk L210 Armored Motorcycle, from the Messerschmitt Me 323 Gigant to the Iowa-Class Battleship. And if the vehicle your campaign needs isn't listed, there are a dozen pages of new design options, fully compatible with GURPS Classic: Vehicles (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6505).</p>
