Re: Has UK TV ever been highjacked?

There was this incident in the US - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWdgAMYjYSs

And this one in the U.K. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afXKOt3A0xc

Max Headroom one was definitely legit, some conjecture as to the real origins/authenticity of the U.K one though...

Re: Favourite RG Forum moments

What an interesting thread. If you got banned then you deserved it, it's that simple. Which would be fair enough if the same rules applied to all. Don't want to drag up old arguments again, but lots of great posters have drifted away or been culled because of the rather draconian application of rul...

Commodore UK Boss David Pleasance Interview

For those that remember his face from his column in CU Amiga, and those that followed the scene at the time, a fascinating interview with David Pleasance, and his UK-centric view of the shambolic running of Commodore. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3ef8ronz9E

Re: Best 16-bit Machine?

Amiga, has to be - surely the most popular in the UK at the time, and the most fun.

AMIGA 1200 PRICE

I'm looking to buy a replacement Amiga 1200 - mine has virtually given up the ghost - I've been checking eBay over the last week or so, prices seem sky high - seems a base unit alone without a PSU now seems to go for around £100+ Is this the going rate now for the A1200? Has the Amiga in general see...

Re: Labour Election Results

As a lifelong Labour voter, I'm chuffed to bits that we now have a leader that actually stands for proper socialist values. Maybe he won't succeed in making the Labour party electable, don't really care - would rather see a party out there that isn't afraid to stand up to the right-wing fear-and-loa...

Re: Who's pretending to be clarance on the IRC?

Fwiw, I was very surprised to see references to Clarance and punching in the IRC thread again, I thought it had already been agreed this would stop since he made it quite clear it bothers him. I can understand the odd joke in bad taste, but this has dragged on too long. He does rather have good gro...

Re: Who's pretending to be clarance on the IRC?

Ok, colour me baffled. This (growingly tedious) thread keeps cropping up, clarance keeps saying there's stuff being said about him or "snide" insinuations have been made, I dutifully wander off to the IRC sticky to see what's what ... and there's nothing to see. Are posts being deleted then? In fac...

Re: Who's pretending to be clarance on the IRC?

It'll be dealt with in the irc sticky and via PM's (as and when I have time). I believe the answer will involve people acting their age, growing up and leaving whatever garbage has happened in the past be left there. I hope that the 'acting their age' quote isn't directed at me - I really don't thi...

Re: Who's pretending to be clarance on the IRC?

Yet again, Spector chooses to use the IRC sticky to throw unfounded snide insinuations towards me - still no explanation from him to me as to what's going on - pathetic coward of a man.

This needs to be sorted out.

Re: Who's pretending to be clarance on the IRC?

Seems that Spector and Katzkatz are still getting their kicks by implying that I have something to do with all the nonsense on the IRC - they don't seem to be able to lower themselves to post in this thread to explain to me what's going on - cheers - glad you find it all so amusing...

What do you mean, 'either way', are you suggesting that it might possibly be me posting on the IRC? I assure you that it is not.

Re: Who's pretending to be clarance on the IRC?

So how long has this been going on? I'm guessing some time, which would explain all the weird accusations thrown at me some months ago...
