im cool, same old, busy with work and stuff, not been about a lot on here as i dont play many games these days tbh...being old (lol) and just chatting censored online constantly
yeah we'll have to meet up at the do, as i'll only know binman, winston and psj from wos (i think)

i was meant, and had a ticket for the huddersfield one but woke up that morning with a massive hangover and couldnt face travelling (oops) sounded good too

but i WILL turn up for this one, ill just restrict my drinking the night before :P
in fact im thinking of coming down on the friday and having a meet up for the sheffield forum i frequent lol, so when i drink ill already be in sheff

i was struggling to remember my password AND username to get on here to pm the guy too, luckily i remembered and so saved it for the future :)

i dont even get retro gamer that often these days :(
couldnt properly afford a subscription and they dont sell it much round here, one place i bought it from on the way home from work stopped :(
enjoy reading it tho and still have the original old issues and the cover discs and binders :)
no longer have mi speccy tshirt tho :( wore it to work and after a couple of days on the acid copperline it fell to bits :(

Are there many tickets left? I'll have to see if I can get the days off, but I am curious about trying out at least one convention.
