Digitizer

Post by paranoid marvin » Mon Jan 30, 2006 3:18 pm

I used to look forward to getting up to this every weekday morning.
Sometimes I'd turn the tv on in the middle of the night,just to see if the pages had changed!

Has anything on Teletext been as entertaining since?
Weird sense of humour sometimes , but always worth reading

Oh ,and how they got away with the picture of 'Turner the Worm being sick' I'll never know!

I used to bore people with Digitiser. People who had zero interest in anything even remotely videogame-like, let alone bizarre, irreverant and peurile rantings on teletext.

The looks on some of their faces when they were reading were magic. None of them ever had a clue what any of it was about.

I used to read it before I went to uni a bit, even had a review for Citadel put up that I sent in.

I used to read Digitizer most days. Mr Biffo was a funny guy.

This site contains ramblings from Mr Biffo, it has nto been updated in a while, bit I find it funny.

I've been reading Digitizer/Gamecentral for as long as I can remember. I'm not sure that the new team is as funny as the last lot & their letters pages can be very hit & miss sometimes.

I got a review (SNES, Lost Vikings 2) printed as well.


And Mr Biffo kindly did the foreword for the Retro Survival disk as well

Yeee-eess... this and various "You is the skank/cuss" comments on my part have resulted in numerous "I'll get me coat." moments over the years...
