Re: Sinclair A-Bike

I tried to use the A-Bike on a proper 2 mile commute yesterday: fell off once, nearly fell off thrice. It's properly unsafe.

Still, it fits nicely in the racking on the train.

Re: Spectrum memes

Awww, come on. Salamander wasn't the greatest conversion ever, but when you played the Spectrum versions of Double Dragon, ESWAT, Jail Break, Guerrilla War or (God have mercy upon us all) Track 'n' Field ... Aye fair enough. It's not bad enough to deserve being singled out (other than for ribbing C...

It takes bloody ages to do all the img and url tags too, I can tell ya.
Up to you of course, but this one's going to be so huge that I think we'd all forgive a plain list without links :-)

Or maybe just give Splat and Sir Lancelot a linked pic.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: discussion

Seymour Goes to Hollywood by Code Masters That list is already huge, but if it's going to contain any Seymour games then I think Sergeant Seymour Robot Cop is the best.

Re: ZX Spectrum User Videos

So that all the videos I do are not scattered around the forum I decided to make 1 post where I can pop them all in. Hope this is ok with the admins and mods. Aye no problem, but I should mention more than a few embedded vids take agggesss to load—do too many per thread and people will probably not...
