Bloody hell Shaun, not much positive I can say really (AS is incurable) but that sucks mate. You've got it so much worse than me - isn't there anything more they can do?
Sure I read somewhere that Michael Atherton (a fellow sufferer) had injections in his back or something, but I think it's a short term solution.
Arthiritis is so f**king horrible, but because it's not life-threatening such as, say cancer, it's not always taken so seriously, especially when people get it younger.

As you know arthritis is just a quick answer. We don't have that but have a chromosome deficient auto immune illness which has no cure. I have a weird determination that keeps me going.

Two stalls selling nothing but those bloody Funkopops and there was very little else of note, just the same sellers trying to sell the same stuff
Same games going out as well
Few indie games
The cosplayers ranged from "Same costume every time" to "who" (Someones own version of Harily Quinn shouldn't count as anything)
Didnt seem like a lot of people there this time, think that due to these type of things happening at least every month (by different people) is killing it.

For starters HOW MANY BLOODY COMICONS DO WE NEED!!? Most the guests are people that few will give a toss about (Stargate?)
I could only get in for a couple of hours on Saturday (my mum was babysitting my lad as he's too young to travel that far without going nuts) but was surprised how many of the Arcade machines were not working already. I got there about 11:30 and there were quite a few out of order, including the sit down Space Harrier. Enjoyed Sociable Soccer, but there did seem to be a lack of 'exotic' systems (your Nuon, FM Towns etc.), but I suppose that depends on who actually owns them in the first place. Still I got a Lemmings mug, No Mercy for the N64 and a Amstrad Codemasters Quatro pack on the Lucky dip, so I had fun. Still think something needs to be done to stop people hogging certain machines though.

The 10p rule.....................
Anybody that dont know what 10p on the machine cp while your playing means shouldn't be allowed in.

Problem with "Exotic" machines is they will get play for a few minutes then ignored, sometimes due to the language barrier but most the time because they are cack

Hated the mime karaoke due to it using the bloody "Happy" song thats so over played in adverts its depressing being played 5 times in a row
