My new screen arrived today, less than 24 hours after purchase. Impressive.

Fitted already, and it's like my laptop is an entirely different machine.

Bit of a cheat as it's basically stock for the website, but had 270 famicom games delivered today.

I look forward to spending hours online trying to find the right titles for them. At least there are a few easy ones like Labyrinth and Robocop.

New Supergun arrived today and there's certainly a lot packed in there, including references to memorable arcade games such as Pac-Man, NewZealand Story and, er, Jet Set Willy.

Sadly they're too expensive for me to have many of but I've got:

- Shinobi System 16 board and adaptor to convert it to JAMMA
- ST-V board for playing Sega ST-V carts like Die Hard Arcade. Eventually I'd like to get the Radiant Silvergun cart for this but that will be £300+ I think so that's more of a long term goal
- MVS one-slot board so that I can run Neo Geo MVS carts
- the Pandora Box DX which isn't a JAMMA board as such but uses that connection

I just keep an eye out for cheap JAMMA boards on ebay now but I'm not even sure there is such a thing anymore. :)

Extra mem for granddaughter's laptop. Didn't achieve desired objective because laptop is too crap to be of any use even with the extra storage.

To hang over our stairs, as we had our bathroom done recently which involves blocking up the old shower cubicle, so there’s a window to darkness in the wall above the stairs that we want to cover up.

I should be posting pictures of a Hyundai wood chipper chipping wood but the fucking thing is damaged and rusty on nearly all parts, and won't assemble because the axle tabs don't fit between the main chassis plates.

Hyundai don't make their chippers in Korea, fact fans!

How much wood would a Hyundai chipper chip if a Hyundai chipper would chip wood?

None, because it wouldn't.

Both the retailer and the UK distributor have asked for photos, so I'll stick them here at some point.

There is *one part* out of the 9 or so that has no visible damage and/or rust.

I went to use my heat gun today but it turns out that leaving it on a shelf for more than 12 months will break it, so I bought a new one. If you need any paint removing, hook me up.

They do just pack up. Even decent ones. They’re quite good for scorching crackling as well.

We have a hardware shop on the high street. I swear you could literally buy ANYTHING in there. And once he let me pay by card even though my purchase was under the £5 limit.

Yet another one of these. Identical to the last one except that the screw holes are not the same distance apart.

I've paid for this twice. We bought it for my granddaughter as she's just started at secondary school, but it proved to be too big, so we bought her a smaller one and I gave her a tenner for this one. My old Nike one was pretty knackered anyway.

Just waiting for a camera filter to turn up. BUT, there's some idiot doing some work on a house over the road so he's in and out of his van all the time and whenever he opens the sliding door I have to look out the window because I think it's Amazon. Might have to go and have a word.

I bought a tent from some dodgy scouser. Just the tent though, the bunting and lights came from somewhere else.

It rained, but when I was inside the tent I didn't get wet! A+++++ would buy again etc.
