Re: Retro Gaming Chat on Discord - join in at 9pm every Sunday

The feelings of raw excitement are building to a degree I honestly can't remember for a long time. This Monday morning, we will witness arguably the most important interview the world has seen since Frost and Nixon. Our Duchess, Meghan Markle will be telling the truth behind her abuse and exploitati...

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

Seems theres loads of cheap standard 1080p screen devices around, which makes sense as its HDTV resolution. I had a quick look for Linx ones, since my 1010b served me well https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Linx-12X64-12-5-FHD-Intel-Quad-Core-64GB-4GB-Windows-10-Tablet-No-Keyboard-Boxe-/313409071523 There'...

I'd be worried about breaking something if I accidentally sat on a 14".

I use ComicRack for my Android tablet.
Did you pay for ComicRack? The crb reader I use seems to have adverts pop up from time to time and I'm wondering if they all do that.

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

I've got an Old Ipad 2 but I'd say avoid anything Fruit based, they don't like long term support and I've still yet to fettle with getting Youtube working again on it, definately leave the cheapo Chinese ones alone too, half of them think they are phones and they run as well as one might expect. Th...

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

I use a Surface Pro. I wouldn't necessarily recommend one just for reading comics, as they're an expensive purchase, but they've got a fantastic screen and also make for a laptop replacement if you get the keyboard. Looking at the Surface Pro, that fits the bill perfectly with that 12.3" screen in ...

Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

Tablets are getting bigger and better for your money now, and I'm wondering if it's possible to get one with a big screen (ie 12") that's not too expensive. This would suit reading scans of the old Marvel comics plus some British ones too (like 2000AD for example). I think 8 and 10 inches is a bit t...

Re: Good Grief

It's extraordinary that in 2021 someone is on twitter asking a question like that. Which asks a further question- where is Kieren? He could speak to the guy on twitter directly and sort this out, but he seems to have disappeared. I'm concerned for his well being: we may have to contact the UN to inv...

Re: Any good retro-themed coasters to recommend?

What really annoys me is that the rhaydercomputers link has some good options, but the best one of all - the arcade machine coasters set-is the only one that's sold out!! That's why they're sold out I guess! BUT....there is a happy ending, because I just got an email from the website owner saying t...

Any good retro-themed coasters to recommend?

I'm looking to buy some coasters for tea/coffee mugs and was wondering if there were any good retro designs that weren't ludicrously expensive. I'm particularly interested in the 8 bit era so anything from that time would be good. Suggestions?

Re: Retro Gaming Chat on Discord - join in at 9pm every Sunday

Just to confirm to those who may be wondering, even though I died a few weeks ago, my internet connection on the other side is actually quite good, so I will be able to join in the retro chat as usual this Sunday evening from 9pm with the usual suspects of Katzkatz, Alarm, Sephiroth81, and if he's f...

Unfortunately I died today in prison, and I'm struggling with my internet connection in heaven, but I will return. I have NOT lost that loving feeling! :D
