I had to reduce the quality of the movies to fit them onto the webspace.

There still not too bad though considering they were taken on a regular digital camera. Bit dark some of them though. Oh well... :)

The UnknownGame is Singstar, the UnknownSystem was a Logic3 Arcade Stick for the Gamecube (well, technically, a Gamecube running with a Gameboy Player - Pacman Vs requires a Gameboy Advance and up to 3 Gamecube pads)
Cheers merman... :) Cant be bothered changing the file names now... :wink:

Hi mate..

I have now uploaded another version thats 38mb in size..

I took it from the camera, sharpened it and changed the Brightness and Contrast.. Not too bad quality.

The file is called ThreePlay.mpg in the same location...

Very few photos of me seem to exist, there are a couple on Weekend Gamer but Sir Clive has seen fit to see me as care in the community - the git! :lol:

And I gave up my turn on Sensi for you!

I've yet to see a picture of me on anyone's photos... I know somebody took my picture while I was playing Rock Band, but it has yet to materialise... Also surprised not to see any pics of the Bomberman tournament apart from my own as loads of people were taking them at the time!

Me too, yet I fluked my way to the final and would have been in with a shout had I not gifted the prizes to Sureshot when I was left one-on-one with him! :cry:

Cool :) I'm glad we did meet up.

The gadget thing was from Inspector Gadget... or rough translation a joke that you didn't get lol :D
It's like an old pair of slippers, isn't it?
