I have been able to get in the odd game of Super Pang on Mame, Ben loves the bubbles!

He handed me the controller a couple of days ago and started blowing bubbles with his mouth to tell me he wanted me to play Pang, which was pretty cool communication!

Who needs words? :)

Almost forgot to mention, to everyone apart from Iain who knows this already, on a ZZAP!-related theme, Roger Kean reviewed Another World on Goodreads (and on Amazon): http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/374900994

Which was very nice of him, I thought.

I do hope you know I'm the tweeting tweeter, not Iain. ;)

Also: follow me for nifty photography! www.twitter.com/zzapback www.flickr.com/zzapback :)

Lloyd, your identity is a MYSTERY.

And those photos are fantastic!

Hey thx! Glad you like 'm. :-)
It is that I'm not getting much further than Canterbury this summer or else I'd drop by to visit and shoot the always pittoresque Abingdon! ;-)

Edit: excuse me Iain for going completely off-topic, de-railing the whole Gordon promo thing going on here... old habits. :D

Well it's been quite an off topic thread but Gordo does try to bring it back on track with the odd bit of blatant self promotion.

Oi! The bits of my blatant self-promotion are *never* odd. :)

Does anyone ever choose that laughing smiley with the mobile mouth? It freaks me out.

So what happened Gordon? You're seriously catering for the Chinese market now I see, hehe.
Try and find someone to translate your book into Mandarin. If it sells you'll probably never have to work again! ;-)

What is this 'work' thing of which you speak? :wink:

Writing is a pleasure; editing someone else's copy less so...

Got me a hand me down of one of these fancy eBook reader things and put Game Boy on it so I would eventually read it instead of it rotting on my laptop.

I just finished it today, rather good as well, especially for people our age, wondering where it's all going and what it's all about. Zzap! is also mentioned in the book, more than once. I was very impressed. 8)

And a very nice review you left on Smashwords, too. Ta. :)

I feel my review is somewhat lacking in literary merit though. I'll have to get you to write my next one! ;-)
