Hope everything went OK.
Thanks. As well as it could. Poor dog looks traumatised and looks like he's done 12 rounds with mike Tyson as his eye (well where it was) is so swollen as they (look away now if you're squeamish) stitch the eyelid up. Poor lad. Was crying earlier but at the mo he's asleep

Newsround
Saw a link to that, was that your copy of e.t too?
Sadly not, ive never seen one for sale in the wild,

all my 2600 carts I try not to get online
Its mainly available as an import, its very cheap in America, pretty sure they were running an import copy as the tv was quite a modern crt and it would most likely be ntsc compatible.

Found out that my daughter has been short listed to the last 25 in the 500 words short story completion from Chris. Evans' Radio 2 show. That's from 138,000 entries. Proud of her! We have an all expenses trip paid by the BBC for a festival in Wales hosted by that ginger guy himself. She's 8 by the way!

Managed to bag myself a raise, so I'm completely chuffed.

Seriously impressive for any kid that age to knock 500 words out, fair play to her.

Very nice. How much do the GT-Four versions go for these days? Also, still got the Porsche?
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

My housemate has a GT4 and I'd guess around £3000, but it's a very different animal to this. Porsche is long gone; to be honest I just didn't have the time or enthusiasm to fix it
