Re: Being unemployed going Orwelian!

Antiriaid I do sympathise with your position, but very recently, thanks to my recent posting, my wife had to go through the unpleasant experience of going to the local Job Centre to start looking for work.

Re: Being unemployed going Orwelian!

The DWP don’t know. Or even seem to care. So desperate are they to punish and harass anyone who might find themselves unemployed, that they no longer seem interested if by their actions they further destroy people’s lives.

Just wondering if any of the greater manchester contingent of the RG forum are able to help me with this. I need to plug my Megadrive 1 into a projector, but the cable I have only converts to SCART and the projector has composite. Does anyone have a composite cable for the Megadrive 1 I can borrow ...

Re: Your favourite all time gaming magazine is?

Mine has to be MEGA The reviews were generally well done and spot on.

It never snows in Liverpool, you know that. Most of the country has no snow at all and is quite sunny. Nice here in Sheffield, if cold.
Maybe it DOES snow in Liverpool, only by the time you wake up, the scousers have nicked it all!
