I must be one of the lucky few.....my wife enjoys playing some games (not Gran Turismo), enjoys watching me playing others (something with a story i.e. not Gran Turismo) and doesn't mind me playing others when she's not around (Gran Turismo).

We do other things as well......don't worry.

One more comment on the buyer's guide.... I have to admit that when I turn the page and find it, my heart sinks a little bit. Nearly finished, boo, not only that, I've got a few pages of uninteresting prices to flick past.....now I'm even nearer the end for another month. Double boo. I DO like the e...

OK am I being thick or what?

I can't work out how to take a snapshot of my desktop....I've tried following the advice on page 1, "hit Print Screen"....where?

The PrtSc key on my keyboard doesn't appear to do anything....nothing in the right-click menu...help!

My local was Spa Computer Centre in Leamington Spa...used to spend hours in there hoping they would have SOMETHING for my aging Electron.

I think it might still be in business, I'm sure my Dad got his PC upgraded there recently?

I'm slowly but surely collecting the reprints of the Transformers comics...I had loads of these when I was a kid but they've been lost in the mists of time.

Bioforge! Can't remember a huge amount about it, just that a mate at college had a copy and a bunch of us went round to his place one lunchtime to have a swizz. I had a Megadrive at the time (I reckon this was around 1994?), and had never seen PCs playing games before (except for Solitaire and Snake...
