Postby robheaton » Wed Apr 11, 2018 7:33 pm

This topic seems quite popular in other forums, so thought I would start it here for a bit of fun.

Just post a pic and any other info about the goodies you received in the post today.

(Sensible and not so sensible comments are also welcome!)

So I'll get it going...

Although this one will probably cause brawling in the streets!

This is a real c64, not one of those silly new mini ones.

I got this beast from http://www.mutant-caterpillar.co.uk/ - I can't recommend them enough, excellent friendly service and sensible pricing!

Does this count? ;)

It came in the post with a magazine. There was an actual hardware thingy, but it's in the basement office at the moment.

I also got (another) free Raspberry Pi Zero W, with my other subscription. :D That's waiting for an micro SD card for the OS, also in the office.


Cheers,
Norm.

Why do they put lightning conductors on churches?
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving!
If you think your job is pointless, remember, there's someone in Germany who fits indicators to BMWs.

Time for some tabletop gaming with the kids!

Originally on KickStarter - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1998318065/escape-the-dark-castle
I only discovered it a few weeks back at a gaming festival, but ran out of time and the queues were horrendous to buy it, anyway, it finally arrived today! :D
