Re: What grinds your gears ?

The guy who site 2 bays behind me at work really annoys me. He's the type of person who always has an opinion about something and your opinion of it is wrong. He's also very pedantic! Ive never spoken to him personally, but I hear him every day banging on about something. Today it was the pic of the...

My spine, 3rd week on the trot I've missed going pub with the old man.
I see you're a Stevenage lad. I used to live there, but moved away in the last 10 years to North Wales. Loved the Old Town for a spot of drinking back then.

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi everyone, hope you're all well :) Im a laid-back retro gamer in my late 30's. I grew up with an Atari ST and a Sega Mega Drive, moving on to PS1 and more when I was in my teens.
