I'm also looking forward to all the active forum members becoming moderators! :D
Yes I agree. I am excited at the prospect of being 'empanelled'. I would be even more excited though if I knew what that actually meant.

Re: Retro Gaming Chat on the IRC channel - join in at 4pm EST (9pm GMT) Sunday December 9th

I've just started using Discord for a couple of communities and it's very good. Works very well on mobiles especially. If the RG chat moved to Discord I would certainly be more inclined to join in. It's likely we'll move to Discord quite soon... once Katzkatz gets his new mobile sorted out!! For no...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

so the 360 came out in 2005 does that mean in 2020 the 360 will be retro :D :shock: that will blow some peoples minds if it does that Dear lord. As an aside, rummaging around last night, I spotted this - an old ad from Kay-Bee Toys. https://imgur.com/gallery/1FFEqa9?fbclid=IwAR3QlUEkf5wxH7aIjEIriR9...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Joe read books and paid attention at school or something, shame on him, apparently. You actually believe the hideous corporate jargon he comes out with is a sign of good English???? :shock: You don't write that way by paying attention at school. You write that way because you have been brainwashed ...

Re: Retro Gaming Chat on the IRC channel - join in at 9pm Sunday December 2nd

Hi Guys! :D My name is Buck Bullshit and this week I’m guest hosting the IRC community channel in place of Spector. He has kindly empowered me to facilitate your entrances to the IRC interpolation this weekend. I have a long history of legacy communications in the retro domain, starting with the Ata...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

We're not beyond extending a kind of potential amnesty, but doing so would be predicated on the intensity of the infraction. I know that politics and certain subjects can become quite heated and factional, and often lead to a dissolution of the interpersonal relationships that form the backbone of ...

We are back on the regular IRC channel again. The link is in the signature, so try that one for now! It's in BIG BLUE TYPE!

Re: Retro Gaming Chat on Discord 9pm Sunday November 18th

At least we know Halycon Daze thinks the St Final Fight is better and all the Atari ST games are crap. Funny how everything Laird likes H Daze thinks is garbage I actually caught him out on this a few times by saying the opposite of my views just to see if he disagreed, and of course he did. At whi...

Re: Retro Gaming Chat on Discord 9pm Sunday November 18th

Katzkatz has had a little problem with that too, so for that reason I'm still looking at this as an experiment. I'm not totally convinced we should stay on it yet. For week two of the Discord experiment. I've put the link in my signature for this new chatroom location, so just click it and see what ...

Retro Gaming Chat on Discord 9pm Sunday November 11th

Defender of the Crown had a fire in it. It may not have been a bonfire but I distinctly remember a fire of some sort :lol: Well, Starfish maybe you can join us this weekend as we try something different :) We are going to use the Discord server to host the Retro Gaming chat just to see whether it's...

Re: I'm getting a new tablet... but which one?

Another semi-related question that could be met with roars of silence: has anyone ever managed to run an exe file on an Android device using a dos box or something similar?

Re: IRC Retro Gaming Chat 9pm Sunday November 4th

Predictably, I'm going to make the Hot Topic for this weekend's IRC chat themed on Bonfire Night, which is a celebration of the 17th Century IRA's attempt to blow up the Houses Of Parliament. Maybe in another 300 years we'll have a Martin McGuinness night in which we all walk around with the same gl...

Re: I'm getting a new tablet... but which one?

Size? I have a 10" Samsung Tab A6 (I think) that has proven reliable and decent resolution for the price. Seems to be going for around £200 just now, though I'm sure I paid less in a sale in Tesco or Asda, around £160 iirc. It does have physical buttons though. My old Asus one had virtual buttons w...

Re: I'm getting a new tablet... but which one?

I'd think that the latest model of the Amazon Fire HD 8 still rules the roost for value, at about £80. If you want a bigger screen there's also a significantly more powerful 10" model for about £150. You've just got to resort to a bit of hackery to get Google Play on them, but that should only take...
