This is the ps3 video reset option that is *supposed* to re-detect your attached video cables and go to the vid setup screen...

Just flicked through the mag only to see on the letters page the picture of the boys playing 5-a-side and that's my office window in the background! :shock:

I missed a retrogamer/imagine 5-a-side tourny 5 yards away!

You would have won I've you'd given me a shout :D

interesting post, but is it fair to print some guys name/address/email/number on a public forum - might be worth editing the pic a bit
Unless you already did change some details :)

The odds might be high, but so are the number of events, which makes the odds a certainty.

I I'm fairly they transport the original matter molecules. Otherwise, what are they using to reconstruct the copy at the other end? Whoa! Moving molecules faster than the speed of light? I think a physics teacher just passed out somewhere :D You don't necessarily need to visit the transporter room ...

Nes Coffee Table

Looking at this guys site and his excellent (working) NES coffee table
I noticed he's also a RG reader!

Worth contacting the guy for a mini article? (Unless he's a forumite I don't know about)

I thought the layout was strange, but didn't suspect it to be an advert (or at least a non-RG edited feature) What was it advertising/promoting? EDIT: Issue 50 states it is an advertisement Bless my short attention span, I just read cover-to-cover. :) I assumed it was a feature written by a guest wr...

Your torrent speed might be all you can achieve if your ISP is shaping traffic. They either bandwidth limit bittorrent packets or prioritise them below normal web traffic. If they do, then protocol encryption might be your only course of action. I've seen settings in azureus to do this, others might...

I bought a Wii and a 37'' HDTV.
I now play Super Mario Bros in all its enlarged pixellated glory :D
Oh, and a DS lite.
Last year (2005) was a bigger retro year for me, purchases of yet another Amiga, some NES/MD/SNES carts. This year has been about next-gen retro like the Wii and DS. :)

I found the same feelings towards which to pick...
Robocop is possibly the better movie, but I can't vote for something that has Robocop 3 attached to it.
Blade is ok, probably the best choice for me when considering all the whole franchise.
