What's the origin of this picture?

Daughter of Sam Slade? (Now that would be an interesting story...)

Yeah, you should be able to link the outputs of your record deck (Assuming you have seperates, if not try the headphone jack of your stereo) into an input jack on your soundcard. From there you should be able to record the sound to WAVs and then burn them onto CD. That's how I converted most of my tape collection over - then I thought 'Sod It' and downloaded the rest 'cause it was easier (although there's some stuff I had on tape that I can't find anywhere in MP3 format)

I think there's software out there that should even be able to remove hiss 'n crackles...

Hmmm. He played C64 games - most ones published by US Gold, so yeah - I reckon there was some sort of deal going on there. As a games addict, I loved it.

13th floor was originally in Scream, but then moved to Eagle along with some other stories.

Atari Pacman?!! Eeeew, what a travesty that was...

Nah, my Atari faves are: Space Invaders, Combat, Circus Atari and Warlords (4 players)

I think I might have to dig out the ol' VCS tonight and have a play. I don't think it's been introduced to my 32" Widescreen telly yet either...

I've not got X-box live (I have a PC for all my online gaming needs), but from what I understand it's about ?35 for the Live package, and then you'll need a broadband connection - my Blueyonder connection costs me ?25 a month (and about ?25 to install)  - which is a lot cheaper than ?300 a month, and you're online 24/7 - wOOt!

  And Star Wars Galaxies is coming out on X-Box...

[Oops, I think I might have mailed this directly to you yer Lordship - sorry, blame Friday...)

The first one had good controls (for it's time), but after playing many other platformers (Super Mario 64, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Ape Escape) where the developers adopted a 'Camera relative' control method (i.e. pull back and the character runs towards the screen etc.), controlling Tomb Raider games became a chore.

And apparently they've dispensed with the old system of Lara moving a certain distance when you press a direction (i.e. she'd step back 1/2 meter, walk forward one meter, jump two meters etc.) which makes positioning Lara for jumps a lot more difficult

  All in all it sounds like TR:AOD sucks - most people say it looks unfinished and buggy as heck. So I guess I'll stick with my X-Box and Gamecube for the moment and still wait for a 'must have' game to come out on the PS2 (apart from Ico)

  Oh well, looks like I won't be buying it then... I was hoping they go for a more camera-relative movement system this time - The rotate left/right mechanism works fine for Resident Evil (and Asteroids) but doesn't for platform games. Guess I'll stick with Zelda for the moment.

  They moved about a month or so ago, but they're on Charles Street sandwiched between the Job Centre and Wilkinsons.

  They have old tat - though when I was last in there they were in the middle of sorting out the 2nd floor and all the back issues.

   I hope you're going to Magic Labyrinth and not Another World then... (BTW Magic Labyrinth post my standing order to me, which makes it easier for me to get them)

  Ummm... Comics I'm reading...

  The main 3 X-titles (Love New X-Men (Grant Morrison - hoorah!), the other two are OK, but I've stuck with the X-men since the mid 100's, so I'll carry on)

  Astro City - comes out very Sporadically but is one of the best-written superhero comics ever. I also like most stuff Kurt Busiek's written

  The America's Best Comics stuff, apart from Promethea.

  Authority and Planetary - both top.

  I was getting Young Justice, but that's stopped now. I think I need to find some more Peter David titles to get though, as he's a very good writer.

  I cancelled Thunderbolts and X-Force due to Marvel's 'stealth marketing' on them. i.e. keeping the title and numbering, but completely changing the comic - incredibly crap.

  Umm - I was getting Battle of the Planets, which was OK but I slipped up in getting the issues and am now about 5 behind - so I'll wait for a Graphic Novel.

  Ooh, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 'cos it's great!
