Re: Patrick Swayze RIP

I don't think this is the one you're talking about, but www.findadeath.com has got some interesting content (though it's certainly not for the squeamish)!

Re: New event next year in Sheffield? 2010

I would definitely come to a Sheffield one. I know there are already some thoughts around an event in July though so you may want to make it earlier (or come to an agreement with the potential organiser of that - I will PM you).

Re: What are you looking forward to most at Retro Reunited?

Looking forward to some multiplayer Bomberman too! :D Ah ha! I now have Dynablaster (probably the best Bomberman 'clone') and a four player adaptor for my Amiga 1200, but to be honest, I'm hoping that either DaveM (acorn4eva) or TomWalker bring that Acorn Archimedes A3010 version :D Eh? Dynablaster...

Yeah I've got it too (somewhere) but I swear it came with the official Nintendo mag (or something like that?!).

Re: BBC Micro LOLs!

Love the manuals.. that letter is an amazing choice for the front page. There should be one at the back that's like: Dear Tom, Now I have a BBC micro I can work from home as a software developer: Go f*ck yourself and your stupid cars.

Re: Gravis GrIP Pad - What System?

They're for the PC. I've got a boxed/complete set of GrIPs, which have been in the loft since about 1998! IIRC they were bundled with a FIFA game and a wrestling game (WWF Raw I think). Do you also have the interface (that features the 4 x 9-pin D-Type sockets) which connects to the 15-Pin gameport ...

Re: 5.25" floppy disks

Well I've got two long boxes full of 5.25" DSDDs, that are 'almost' new (every single one contains the IBM PC version of Double Dragon 2, so they've been written to once at the duplication plant and that's it). I wasn't really looking to part with any as they're kinda useful to have around, but seei...
