    This brings back bad memories! When I was a kid I asked my mum for a Spectrum for Christmas but instead they got me an ORIC 1 because the Speccy was sold out in all the shops and said "well it's just the same isn't it?" ARGH [​IMG]

    Alekmaul does fine work. The emulators he makes always look so professional.
