Does anyone remember the episode where Pogo Paterson stole a ball of putty and hid it in his sling? He must have had a broken arm at the time - or was faking one. A real thriller! I think it might have been the first episode of the second series, where they were introducing a new year of kids. Is t...

Best horror of recent times has got to be 'Descent'. Edge of your seet stuff all the way through without the hype when it was released. Thought the first half of hostel was fine, atmosphere setting for the finale.
Really looking forward to the second one.

Without a doubt, the amstrad cpc range. I used most 8 bits for basic coding and nothing could touch it. Even the BBC. :D

Crackdown - In the credits....

In the credits, is it finders keepers guru David Jones? Also, did i see Gary Penn in there?

Monotheist

To the few of you that know of this album, what do you think?
I am utterly gobsmacked by its brilliance. Metal has been reinvented.

Quite magnificent.

Re:

WTF, Shut up you t*at! In the original post no-one mentioned upgrading, just changing the motherboard! I should imagine 99% of the people on here know that if you change a motherboard with a different socket type then obviously CPU and possibly RAM (depending on model etc) will need to be changed a...

Thats fine. People have different senses of humour of course. I suppose even though i have travelled with consoles and computers from my zx81 upwards it is still the 8 bits that have provided me with the most enjoyment.
