Royal mail Suck. Last chance at this wave of retro.

Hello all. I had interest in some of the bits, but no replies since. The shipping costs I got from Royalmail.com turned out to be totally inaccurate :roll: so please don't be discouraged by them. I'm not out to rip anyone off, and I only charge for the item, the packaging and the royal mail costs. N...

Re: Forum Group Photo

No!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't admit to being number one in person... You have to give elaboratly complex plans with sinister motives through number two. I think number six should be seem as some sort of maverick too. Possibly wearing a black sport coat with white trim and a turtle neck pullover. With an...

Re: UK Pinball Party, 12-14 Aug, Daventry (inc Replay Game Z

This is Daventry Northants, right? I've already got that weekend booked off work and I'm local. The missus made me give opinions on stick on nails earlier, so I'm thinking she needs to give some opinions on some pinball machines... muahahahaha

4th of July sale Sensible offers considered due to crisis

Hello all. Know I've been gone for a while, but I haven't forgotten you. I'll be liquidating my collection of approx 3000 games and 70 systems over the next few months. Anything not sold is going in the trash. Nothing's up for swap as I need the money, not the clutter. My car went up in flames while...

Re: How do you clean your console?

And yes, I know it's sad, but I love cleaning the systems more than playing them sometimes (Philips g7000 I'm looking at you). I even have a tool box with all my bits and pieces in. :) It's not OCD, Dammit. What does your girlfriend think of this ?!? You prefer to clean them than play on em ? Come ...

Re: Wanted Commodore 16

I have an immaculate C16 that has died. (immaculateness verifiable by fellow retrobate. And immaculateness is SO a word.) I may be willing to split the case and the PSU/Datassette into two seperate GOOD homes. The box, manuals and programs are promised to someone else though... PM me if you're inter...

Free C64 version of Dizzy @ Codemasters

Hi Peoples. While trawling T'internet for gamey goodness I found that Codemasters UK are offering up Treasure Island Dizzy for free download on their page for Christmas. I'll be busy at work from now on then... Not sure if this has already been mentioned or not.

Pip Old Chap.
