Next on the agenda: to write up about Shaz's trip here. But because it'll be quite a long post, I'll add random snippets that happened at the time but had nothing to do with the trip itself, just to prevent there from being one long post.
Long shot, this, but: have any of you got or seen or used a Lexmark X74 scanner/printer combo thing. It's going cheap in a sale at Toys R Us, but I've yet to find reviews for this particular machine. I shall look further.
My gamesbuying gene kicked in again and I finally managed to get hold of a copy of Kula World. I've paid £25 for a promotional version of the game (so no manual or box) but it's about £20 less than the usual price for the game on ebay. I'm glad I can find games I used to enjoy, to be able to play them again.
Also: I randomly began to play Sly Raccoon after buying it ages ago, and I lust over the game now. I wouldn't call it true love just yet, but my goodness, it's a game that's been well-made and will go down like Dynamite Headdy and Sparkster as a game that needs a sequel that will never arrive.
