    Craziest day! My 85 year old aunt found my original Atari VCS BOX! (Which I believe I bought in 1979 or 1980). Not the console (Which my cousin pawned or lost in a storage shed before he died we're pretty sure), but the box itself, which was under an inch of dust in her downstairs closet. I can confirm I bought it at Grand Central for $129.99 on sale from $159.99 cuz the price tags are still there! The box shows a Heavy Sixer but I'm pretty sure mine was a Light Sixer. I thought all of it was lost,...Never thought I'd see this again! Inside is some NES game boxes; All of it is dusty as hell!

    Covid 19, put to bed. Today, I had no cough. No cough at all. That is the last of the Covid 19 symptoms to go, aside from some Tinnitus which lingers. As some of you may be aware, during Lockdown it has been very difficult for me to source (buy) real food like fruit, veg and meat. The online supermarkets seem to run out of all that because people are being too greedy and buying 3 of everything. Anyway I got put on a priority list by one supermarket (none of the others) and it allowed me to finally get some good stuff. I tried to get some nice pork chops but sadly although I ordered them, they sold out. Not sure how that works. Anyway, the picture has improved somewhat and I am now eating proper food. I just had (have to eat around meds) Salmon, Potatoes, white and green leafy vegetables. I never thought I would crave *healthy food, but boy did I! It was alright getting by eating junk when I was sick, but now I am finally able to put the C19 behind me, I have no cough AT ALL now. I can start to enjoy eating well and possibly trim down a little. I am now waiting on the Home Testing Antibody tests. If I can confirm I am done with C19 100% and if my blood levels have gone up during my Iron therapy I would be 100% happy to donate plasma to those who would do with it. If I could help someone, I want to. I just don't know if the IDA will preclude it or not. If I can, I will. Stay safe people!

    Jethro Tull is one of those bands where compilations or "greatest hits" just don't cut it. Gotta go for the individual albums to get the best stuff!

    Just wanted to take a moment to thank again all those people who liked, commented and messaged me during my corona battle, the support was immense and I am very grateful. Anyone wanting to get to know me a little better, check out my profile and don't be afraid to message me. I am open to learn more about some of you great people on here ! If you're a nutter, feel free not to, but if you're 'normal', whatever that means, or relatively normal, like me, I'd love to hear about what games your into, your systems, if you use Emulators or real hardware and general information about you. For a kick off, I'm from London, I write and design games. I've been doing that since I was 9 on my Commodore 16 Plus 4. I never wrote anything for the first family computer, a ZX81, but I did for everything else. I'm into shoot em ups, platformers, puzzle games. I enjoy a good strategy game but finding time to dedicate to 'deep' games can be challenging in itself. I was into Wolf' 3D and Doom but now FPSs bore me because of over saturation! Some of my favourite games ever are Bubble Bobble (ARCADE), Max Payne 2 (PC), Jak and Daxter: Precursor Legacy (PS2/3), Target Renegade (CMB64), Tetris (Game Boy), Blaggar (C16+4), Manic Miner (Spectrum 48k), Silent Hill 2 (PS2), Crash Bandicoot 3:Warped (PS1), Bounty Bob Strikes Back (A8), Rocky (XBOX), Garou: Mark of the Wolves (Neo Geo-(Emu) -No Access to Hardware), Joust (Atari 2600), Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge (Amiga), Streets of Rage 2 (Megadrive), Punch Out! (NES), Donkey Kong (Nintendo Game & Watch), Enduro Racer (Master System), Flicky (SG-1000) Edit: Oh yes! Almost forgot. I'm going to try to speak to my Doctor today about the possibility of getting all clear tests / donating plasma. Fingers crossed Cheers

    The very first video game I ever ever played was released in 1974. Here's a video (not mine) of it in action. Ah, the memories... Game runs on pure logic... no CPU or ROMS.

    My Daughter(3) logged into my final meeting of the day while I was in the bathroom, she knows clicking green buttons on screen connects to things, she told everyone I was in the bathroom, then proceeded to started them other funny things like to read chickachicka boom boom in english class. Suffice to say she made everyone's day.

    Wife was woken up by the cat a 4 am. Then she started hearing music coming from downstairs. Found our 9 and 3 year old playing Super Mario Bros. on the Wii. Ah, to be young and wild and free (and not have to go to work in the morning)!

    Nintendo 64 games seem to have filtered themselves into 3 categories, expensive, terrible, and wrestling games. And expensive doesn't mean good either.

    that moment when, you play your own game for the 100th time today and don't get back to working on the code, because you are just enjoying it too much! If this was twatter I would probably be #MightBeOnToSomething Things seem to be progressing eerily smoothly so no doubt tomorrow my computer will fail, I will break my arm or ... Well, actually, due to the lockdown there are only so many things that can go wrong. I'm eating, I'm looking after myself. I should just embrace things going well for a change...
