Re: Today

Today after having yet another rough night (Fallout 4 took the edge off though inbetween crashes) I got my phone bill through and it was only £2.52 so with the money saved I decided to have a treat as I've been having a real s****y time of it, I ordered another Cobi Brick car, a Lada this time which...

Re: Today

Knebworths still quiet so doubt I'll see another here for a while, was funny watching people zig zag down the old town after getting some pre festival drinks or six in to get back to the shuttle bus stop at the station. Car Club want to do the NC500 which has been on my bucket list since before I co...

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

Well your average laptop is 15.6 screenwise it probably wouldn't be drastically different once you got used to it as that size you'll probably use a prop stand rather than just hold it.

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

Display just means the screen, a tablet has a touch screen display same as a Car Dash computer has a touch screen display.

Re: Megadrive game good for kids

Pretty much all of the Disney library on it is good, despite the image they tried to protray with the Megadrive back in the 90's alot of it's catalouge is still very family friendly, just obviously avoid stuff like Mortal Kombat. One of the joys of the Megadrive is it's pretty easy to emulate so you...

Re: Anywhere other than EBay to get good condition Nintendo DS lite

Not done a DS but Nintendo portables are pretty much easy to reshell, DS's I know are really prone to going brittle with age so maybe just getting a rough looking one and reshelling it yourself might not be a bad idea. Had a quick glance and theres various shells at Circa £12 and most come with the ...

Re: Any good retro-themed coasters to recommend?

Piles of NES cart ones about, when Game opens again it's worth a look in their merch bins as stuff like this does pop up, just be wary of anything made by Paledone as they quality is legendarily p1ss poor (and I do speak from experiance)

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. Tha...

Re: Have you kept in contact with any of your school friends ?

I saw one maybe a bout a year ago now, his Mum, Dad and younger Brother spoke at length to me but he didn't say a word and another often pops in to see his parents 3 doors down but hasn't spoken to me in atleast 10 years and these 2 were what I considered my best friends at that age so maybe sometim...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Prin That looks like it might be the right one although the board seems a little different so I'd have to find the vid again for it to make 100% sure. The problem with Wood is even in something like pine it'll be heavy which isn't a problem if it's staying in one place but if you want to display it ...

Re: What are you currently playing?

That version is the wrong size version, it makes the screen skinnier as its shared with the GBC (if you search it on Youtube you'll see what I mean), there is a IPS option thats closer to the correct size but its having the funds to do it, the main issue the NGPC has always had in relation to moddin...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Got out the NGPC for Metal Slug 1st Mission and 2nd Mission (confusing naming as each stage is called Mission aswell) - I'm naturally awful at it and my old eyes don't help so I see a screen update in the future providing I can find one the correct size. Also the GBA came out, got NFS Underground an...

Re: New eBay payment rules.

I've got mine set at 10 days so I usually get peace for a while as I can't get stuff out fast, it's to do with the agreement thing.
