Hi folks,
I don't wanna spoil the party ( 8) ) but did you know that Jesus was born actually somewhere around early October?

I don't celebrate Xmas,
but I wish you lot all the best, all days of the year! :D

Ta!

Merry Christmas Everyone! No snow around here..yet!

What did people get for presents? I got my Xbox modded from a guy in Northern Ireland, lots of clothes (Jeans, shirts, socks, underwear) and the full set of Morts Magazine DVD's. So I spent this afternoon on the Xbox playing a few MAME classics, the new 'Leisure Suit Larry' game and looking at some old issues of TGM! Oh, and eating chocolates before finally crashing out for a couple of hours!

Just like to thank a few people - Iain (for the site and forum), Mort (for the high quality service), CraigG (for the modding info) and Mr ZZAP!Back (for being a ZZAP! fanatic!). Plus anyone else who has made me smile/laugh/howl over the last year.

I'm going as its starting to resemble The Queen's speech! :lol:

Yeah, the fakers! :wink:

Btw, thanx LeeT for the nice words.
Wait for what I have in store for 2005, you'll be blown away (hopefully -but not literally -of course. 8) )

Ta folks!

My wife gave me Seven Samurai and Blade II on DVD. Plus, a cosy new office chair (which my buttocks are nestled in at this very moment.)

The girls got way too many presents, but they had a great day. :D

Santy didn't call at our house this year :( No C-One or C64DTV, not even a Beano annual!

I guess he gotten confused since I've moved around so much the past couple of years, I'll have to send him a letter with my address again x-)

Thanks for the kind words LeeT and an modded XBox is one of the best presents you could get!

p.s. Does anybody have a copy of the Commodore Christmas Demo, the one with the snow falling over the C= logo etc.? I was trying to find it last night and had no luck :( I would have thought it would be easy to get at this time of year.

A GC and 8 games? That quite a big present isn't it? :)

re xmas demo, I would appreciate that, can't seem to find it anywhere!

It'll be added to my website if I get it anyway, so others don't have to search so hard for it.
