Re: JXD android tablet - anyone have one & opinions?

I've owned a JXD 7800B for quite a few months and found the PSX emulation to be really good. The games are very playable without any glitches.

Re: Anyone remember "Manta Force"?

I've just acquired my large manta force collection from my fathers loft. Years of sitting their being neglected, it's still in perfect condition. It's now got a very new proud owner, my four year old son. He loves it more than any other toy. Toys like this really inspire imaginations.

Re: Jim'll Fix It

He came to see my brother a couple of times around November up in St James hospital in Leeds. My little brother suffered massive head/brain injuries after a senseless attack in a Wakefield nightclub. Sir Jimmy is such a wonderful bloke who always puts others first. His visit touched us all.
