Re: Vectrex troubles.

Funny, but I've never seen as many vectrex units up on ebay for spares or repair before. I hope they arent dying all over! Many thanks for the replies chaps. Gonna check...

Vectrex troubles.

Hi everyone. My Vectrex has developed 'juddery/split' vectors last time I turned it on. I bought it of some geebag from ebay a few years back, but it's had virtually no use. Just like to flash it up now and then for it is so beautiful. Is it a possible fix? I've heard about this happening to the con...

Re: Retro stuff in Cash Con/Gen WTF prices

I bought a used gamecube console only, off of cash converters operating out of ebay. They're london based. This smelly, pigging dirty, dusty gamecube arrived in post week or so later. The packaging was great, it was literally chucked into a jiffy bag and shat into the post. Needless to say it didnt ...

Re: I got burgled

Smurph, things can only get better! A double whammy to be sure. Me and my girl were enjoying a nice relaxy sunday afternoon a while back when the phone rang. Her bank - querying about some shmuck in wales trying to use her credit card to buy car insurance. God knows how they got the details of the c...

Re: Can't be arsed

It all just sounds horribly bitchy and mean hearted to me. I've worked in retail for nearly 30 years, have a 'hands on' approach to customers. And we've done well from it. The idea of a customer getting so enraged over something like this is strange. And not good for either of the partys concerned. ...

Re: Michael Winner dies

A true story (according to Winner). He had the script to Deathwish and whilst boarding a plane in the states, with Charlie Bronson, gave him the lowdown on the script. ''It's basically some good guy goes around shooting bad guys who've done real bad stuff.'' Bronson replies ''I'd like to do that'' W...

Re: Can't be arsed

Don't leave neg feedback. He made a mistake. Put it down to experience, but don't lay into the guy too much. It aint like he ripped you off. Why would you want to put a neg on some person you've never met? A personal view - I don't 'dig' negative feedback shtuff. I've been on ebay for over ten years...

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

My little girl was at the library the other day, and she saw a brand new addition to the library which she borrowed for me (as she knows I love 'new' books). It's 'The memoirs of Constable John Mee (RIC)' Autobiography of an Irish polisman back in the day. Wasn't very intrigued initially, as it seem...

I wasn't really trying to make 'witty comments' to yon spam thing - Not that sad, must be hard to get a spammer excited. Read all points, noted - and sorry to have contributed to time-wasting for moderators. Sorry lads!

Re: 3ds or vita?

Why the fnuk would you swap a pressie your girl got for you? Don't do it man. Work out how to get games for it and cherish your gift from a lovely gal.
