Seeing As Mr C quite observantly noticed the lack of existence of a new members thread, I decided to start on... So new members, please tell us a bit about yourself here so we can get a general idea about who you are and what your fancy is :D

Hi New member here, I don't have anything clever or witty to say just yet, I'll edit this post when I do.

here's something terribly lame to start us off:

Don't crash into me and I won't crash into you.

thanks very much! Nice to have an open reception. I'll even thing of a terribly witty sigline at some point. Maybe even throw in Dirk Gently-ism or two.

random fact: despite the fact that its still a completely pointless game my favorite C64 game is still "Ducks Ahoy" by CBS Software.

Ducks Ahoy isn't pointless! Giving suicidal ducks a boat ride is useful ;)

To torture you, I'll tell you what the game is about: you drive around a small boat in a Venice-like city (i.e. channels instead of roads). Ducks jump out of the buildings into the water. You have to catch them so that they don't drown (or whatever...). Now that is evil, isn't it? :evil:

Drown?!! I thought ducks could swim like... well ... ducks, really? At least in Lemmings you knew that when you left your little critters unatended they'd splat mercilessly on the ground. Now that was evil. :evil:

Anyway, welcome to the Spam Club, Airplane.

Yeah, well, maybe you are the bad guy in the game and have to catch the ducks to send to to the slaughterhouse :evil:

AHA... I'm a new member. I found this site 'cause I was looking for referance to the game 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' in celebration of the late-great Ed Woods birthday.

I like the look of this site, it seems a close community which is good.

.....aaaaaanyway, in the theme of the thread, a bit about myslelf....

Vitals.....
27,M,UK,Programmer

General Bio....
I like old videogames, especially from the Atari 2600 (I have a _major_ collection for this system), C64, Speccy and Megadrive. I also like the Dreamcast a lot and see this as the collectors lot of the future.

Aside from gaming I like Football (supporting Burnley(English 1st Division)) and also play classical guitar which I used to teach as well.

So there you have it!

Whew! Classical guitar is nuts. I envy that you can play that. I mainly play jazz, blues, or rock, but I'd really like to learn classical, but truly, it seems to be the hardest guitar style to master.

I used to have some Atari games, but then I gave them to my cousin, since I really didn't play them all that too often, and that made his collection quite large, as he had a few already. I'd be interested to hear what you have.

Indeed... It is a shame that people register (and even anounce themselves here) without ever letting their thoughts be heard...
