HERE ARE THE ED LINES
I'm as mad as a monstrously mental March Hare this month, readers. Spring has sprung, the sun is shining, my goatie beard has made a belated (bleated?) come-back and the C64 scene is, well, if not as buoyant as ever, then certainly still thriving!
Commodore finally bundled the curvaceous C64 with a disk drive just before Xmas, and put it on sale for the very reasonable price of just £150 (while stocks last...). Praise be! For now our little 8-bit buddy is finally set to give the 8-bit consoles a real run for their money. I wonder just how many C64 packs did sell last Christmas?
On the software front things are looking up, too. We're still waiting for a finished version of Lemmings to arrive, but our friends at Alter Developments in Holland assure it won't be much longer. Here's hoping!
Meanwhile, life goes on in the Commodore Force office. Ian's hyperventilating at the prospect of his girlfriend moving in with him (she must be madder than me!), Chris is as chuffed as a very chuffed person indeed to be receiving more tips per week than Corky did in the whole time he was here, and Miles... what can I say? He's still as nutty as a squirrels doings only his hair's a bit cleaner. In fact, he's lumbering around looking like an extra from a Silvikrin advert!
Ah well, on with the issue. I think I'll retire to my little rubber room for a while now and leave the rest of the team to it. It's nice and quiet in there, and there's no danger of those nasty purple fribble querts popping up up and awaaay, in my beautiful brass aquarium... (normal service will be resumed as soon as the Sunny Daze Sanitorium deem it wise!)
