the funny thing about retro is that it's always cool, but the things that are determined retro were always crap at the time like puma for instance,you may as well have worn a pair of asda trainers as a pair of puma,they had about the same level of coolness. now i get dragged into shops to buy my daughter a pair for 70 Shocked it's puma Shocked

Well, it couldn't have been retro when I had one as it wasn't old enough, so it must have been crap Razz

There is a deamon that updates the locate database, as it usually runs at night it might not have been updated if you always shut your computer down.

I don't believe all you young Linux babes ranting on about your first games using real graphics on real TV sets!

My first computer was a Science of Cambridge Mk 14 - Clive Sinclair's first hobby computer. I had to solder it together from a kit of parts, it featured a revolutionary calculator-style numeric display and Hexadecimal keypad. Oh, the joy of playing Moon Landing after a mere hour or so of keying in machine code. I got so I could pilot that lunar module like Biggles' ghost...

And command shell users think they're hard. Bah! Snort! Waffle drone ... in my young day ... lucky to eat our gravel warm for breakfast ... babble ...

Smile Been there, did that, spent every last penny I had playing galaxians while on holiday in Blackpool (some building in the pleasure beach I think ~ cant remember) ... quite scary to think it was around 20-25 years ago, makes me feel old Sad
ended up saving all my pocket money to buy it for my Spectrum .... god those were the days
