I have updated the link with new images from Saturday. Includes a few terrible photos with me. Excuse the one where I'm attempting sex with the a1200.

If you want to bring your Black 1084S round here I'll fix it. I'll be able to fix almost anything except a cracked tube.

It probably just needs new CAPS, 10 minute job.

I think it might just be a fuse. It was switched off, and never switched back on again. No sound at all, and no led.

I should caption them. I intend to make a wiki page with some stuff, so then i can point out who is who.

Jeff Minter was unable to attend this year. However Steiner Lund turned up, which was cool. We hope to have a gallery with his artwork like we have done with Bob Wakelin.

D'oh. He was there? And I never met him!!

His covers of Driller, Darkside and Total Eclipse are my favourites. Although there are at least 2 different artworks per game and I am not sure which ones he did (if he didnt do both). Did he do Castle Master too?

F-15 Strike Eagle II and Team Yankee 2 were also very good.

He did Llamasoft covers? Cool.
