We will be back on tonight talking about the coronavirus no doubt, as you do on a retrogaming chat, after Boris Johnson's 6pm address to the nation. He will relax the rules, so we can celebrate that tonight from 9pm on Discord. Follow the link in my signature. And remember the new guidelines:
STAY AT HOME IF THERE'S SOMETHING GOOD ON TV
PROTECT THE NHS IF YOU REALLY WANT TO
SAVE LIVES IF YOU CAN BE BOTHERED

Hi guys! Would have posted an update earlier but I was busy creating my Dominic Cummings fanpage. I just don't understand why people are criticising this great man. So what if he visited relatives 250 miles away while he had symptoms of coronavirus? It was really important, and I'm sure he washed his hands before he got out the car. Yes, it might seem hypocritical to the public who were unable to go to funerals and he does come across as unbelievably arrogant in his responses to the press, but Mr Cummings has a lot of money. And people who are rich are more important than people who are poor. That's why they can break the rules. It's money that matters!!

As a tribute to Sir Dominic, I have decided to use him as inspiration for this weekend's Hot Topic:

What is the biggest mistake ever committed by a programmer in a classic retro game?

I would nominate the controls in 3D Ant Attack. Instead of Up Down Left Right Fire it has an incredibly complicated amount of directional controls affected by what way you are facing. It's still a great game, but much harder to get into as a result. Thankfully, a hack has been made with much simpler controls, so you can play it as it should have been first time around :)

But what would you choose? Please come on at Sunday 9pm and you can let us all know. The link to get on is in my signature. I beg you to make an appearance and show your love for Dom!!!!! :)

I mean, he's probably less of a risk than the people on the beaches near me over the past few weeks or so. Living in a seaside town really does show the idiot in people.
But sometimes you feel it, d'you know how it is
You wake up in the morning and everything thing fits
I'm still hoping tomorrow feels like this
My perfect day~

Last week was fun. In fact, we had not just one but TWO markopolomans! One mysteriously appeared and refused to speak, lurking in the background, then another appeared that was the real one. How strange. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear someone had logged on under a false username!

The mystery deepens as to whom it could be. Is it Darran looking for any anti-Amstrad rhetoric??? Was it Prinny having a particularly bad spelling accident when typing his name? Was it The Laird deciding to use a fake account to spy on people who had slagged him? The question may never be answered, but we will be back on tonight at 9pm using the discord platform to see if the mystery deepens, and the link is in my signature. See you then! :)

Wasn’t Top Tw@t Gamer Laird as well? Twitter user Top Tw@t Gamer was allegedly him or Dave. It’s like Killer 7 All these different personalities.

Did Laird fall out with Top Hat Gaming Man then? I've seen that guys youtube videos - seems alright.
