Winning while chewing out my contractor for leaving my stuff out in the rain.

I don't think that'll be happening again, or I'm going back to the conditions stated in our contract. No more fronting $10 for gas or to pay his workers. I'm just a little peeved now, and since the whining thread is closed this one will have to do.

What? No Star Raiders?

Two Zylon fighters attack.


Nope, can't find that one. I'm sure it's out there somewhere to be had for PC.

I found Asteroids though..

That's too bad, It was a purely Atari Cartridge based game of about 16K rom, I think of the PCs, Only the PCjr had any possible Cart slots and It didn't prove too popular I read. It did look promising for the time though.

No It's not exactly warm here either, Although Palm Springs CA down in the Low Desert could be called warm and worse in the summer. :D

It is VERY unusual for it to be warmer here in the UK than at your location Vic, but 28C was widely reached yesterday and expected again today - and in May?!

Most strange weather recently. We've gone months & months without our usual South Westerlies then a sudden blast of Warm air from the close continent.

It will all be over by early next week though!

I can vouch for that Andy. It hit over 25c here yesterday, and has all the feel to being as hot, or more so, today.

I need to get up, feed the dogs and then walk them while it's cool. We are off to Nottingham to see the grandson about lunchtime.

Winning now, or not?
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues
