      No. not again!

      I can't say yet. Something positive. Positive in a good way that is! Just waiting.

      Fingers crossed for me Gold. It is something good, but I can't talk about it at the moment unfortunately. I don't want to count my chickens.

  3. Flight of the Amazon Queen is a forgotten Amiga classic; mainly because it came out pretty late in the day.

    If you don't know of the game, it's free, so you've no excuses. Despite the disingenuous assertion on Wonkipedia, the released game, as was, was not coded in Amos.

      Most late Amiga games got ignored, and this is coming from someone who used to own an Amiga 500.

      It's true a lot of people migrated to high end consoles and PCs. I couldn't afford either so...

  4. 4 Non Blondes. 'What's Up'.

    I remember this coming out and thought it was great. They never made a second album and apparently the first was a mountain to climb as it was.


    Only recently did I discover that remarkably half the band (Shaunna Hall and Wanda Day) had been sacked even before the first album had been completed.

    That has to be a first even in the mad fucked up world of Music!

      So,  I've heard that song, as it played in bars and everywhere in the 90's...And I've heard the name 4 Non Blondes.  Now I guess I know what song they did!

    2. GoldLeader

      That's just me though,...Pretty sure the rest of the world knew that one.

      No I think you are right. After it came out, as a song, I knew I liked the song, heard 4 Non Blondes being mentioned, but- only put them together about 5 years later. 

      They sort of disappeared and considering it is a wonder they even got one album out!

  5. Having a lie in, suddenly an explosion of child activity outside my window seems to be an appropriate alarm clock.

      Haha-I live "in town".

      My neighbors have roosters, right near my bedroom window.

      What a friggin treat.

      We get 'em over the other side. Pigeons on the roof for some reason recently as well. 

      Sometimes bird song can be delightful, but other times quite annoying. I suppose if you've had a good nights kip you wake up on the sunnier side of town. :)

  6. It's a good game. Some of the conversions were good, others iffy.
  7. What a miserable day out there ! One for staying in, heat on, hot cups of tea and a novel I think!

      Funny because Right Now, as I write this it's -9F (RealFeel -27) and I'm gonna leave the warm house to take out my trash and probably shovel my walk...Only a couple of inches of snow so not too bad at all, but It's 5:04 PM and if the sun goes down I figure it will get cold!!  I dress in layers so I know how to handle this stuff - Long sleeve, then short sleeve, then flannel, wearing light pajamas under my pants etc,.  and gloves and a Winter Hat of course....

      Keep safe !

       

      Yeah, so you are trapping warmth, what there is of it, through the layers. Rather you than me mate. Us Brits are not cut out for Cold weather. Adversely we are not cut out for Hot weather either. 

      We sometimes get both. In 1962 it was incredibly cold due to an Anti-Cyclone.

       

      In the last few years summers (which generally consist of between one week and a fortnight of hot consistent weather, it can get as hot as 35 (95?)

       

      For all the Americans talking of it raining all the time in the UK, we generally only get rain most of the time.

       

       

      In reality it is a perception not born out to be true. We get about 130 days of rain or snow here, I've just looked up.

       

      It once snowed in June here for some mad reason. I was at secondary school, in English.

       

      When I was a kid, I remember a couple of Hurricanes but that seems to be as extreme as our weather really gets, though we have started to get a thing called ThunderSnow ?

       

       

  8. One of those 'I've been here before' days. Not that surprising as most days blend into each other ATM.

  9. I didn't think that was political. Nonsense maybe, but never mind...

     

    It was a reference to Orange mobile if you are wondering. They had a slogan 'The Future's Bright, The Future's Orange'.

      I restored it, not sure why it was hidden.  Must have been an American. :P

  10. Do you remember when the Future was (Is) Orange ? I don't think it is anymore. However, there is a glint of Blue is the Sky and the Sun is on the rise. Pandora's Box may be open, but Hope remains.

    I think we are coming through this. It's been a dark dark tunnel but finally with these vaccines and a little hope I feel we are on our way again.

     

    If you are really feeling 'it' at the moment. I urge you to stay positive. I know it may be tough, but a few short weeks ago, we had 0 vaccines. We now have 6 or maybe 8? Things are tough but this time next year could be a whole different story.

     

    As someone who knows, I say 'Fuck You, Covid 19!'

  12. One of those days when you feel like giving up.

      Rogerpoco

      Don't, Man.

      I get it, I really do, but it's days like that that make the "good" ones good!

      Hoping for a better tomorrow for ya!!!

      Thanks lads. 

  13.  

    So this has been me for most of this month...

  14. During this unpresidented unprecedented time, we should all remember one thing.

     

    It could be you! your mum! your mum's gran! Your step-grandad, your nephew, your wife's lover or your cat, writing god-awful poetry in a ham-fisted attempt to sum up their, your, or our collective shitstorm of feelings as a group, nation or world.

    Let's put a stop to this madness. Stop people posting crass badly thought out jumbles of words, masquerading as creativity.

  15. Puzzle Games are going BIG this year...

      Ah. PC sadly. I say sadly, that's where potential money is. Though I do love the retro systems very much.

      I understand, if PC sales are strong enough, maybe a retro version could be feasable.
