Re: Japan to UK voltage

your local Maplin store would be able to sort you out, just tell them it's a Japanese device and they'll point you in the direction of the adapter you need, for extra security give them the power information you've learned here, as long as you get a half decent member of staff you'll have no problem...

Re: Online Emulation, Good or Bad?

Finally got him to talk and he is being picked on by another kid - a kid that picks on pretty much anyone he can and this kid punched him hard in the chest today.
