Should be possible to order online once that issue is up. We deliver pretty much anywhere in the world. I'm sure even to Bulgaria.


Ah,but you sending it out doesn't mean it actually gets here using the usual post...
In fact,since we moved here 13months ago we've had 2 deliveries by "normal" post
Household deliveries aren't done in the villages,you pop down to the post office to collect
Either there's a sackfull of stuff at the main sorting office,or it's grown legs and err,legged it

Oh, the switch works. All offside indicators are dead, but the light on the dash flashes double time. Nearside works fine.

The irony of being stuck with a non-indicating courtesy car whilst my BMW is in for a service is not lost on me.

Handed in my notice today due to impending job change. Oddly timed well as my pay was going to be coming down slightly, now not a worry. My new job has something like 8 weeks of training though....yikes.
Exciting stuff.


This is all good. Any company that invests 8 weeks worth of training is much less likely to kick you out when the chips are down as it will cost them a fortune to retrain someone else when it picks up again.

Latest issue of Retro Japanese is making me smile. That's our eighth issue done, and I got given complete free rein. Hirst talks about the Subaru Legacy, Ratdat talks about the surprising number of Nissan N12 Pulsar/Cherry spin-offs and I drive a peach of a Honda Civic second-gen. And a Nissan President. And a Datsun Fairlady 1500 that was sold new in Rhodesia. Happy times! I also compared my Honda with a Nissan Cube.

It's on sale 15th December. If it sells well, despite this motley collection of non-commercial motors, I'll be thrilled. We even had a Daihatsu Sportrak buyer's guide FFS!

Made redundant last week, but it means I'm officially employed until the end of the month, then get paid my notice, then get some more on top for being a good boy and agreeing to it without a fight.

Time off just before Christmas, and sufficient money to fund starting a business/compensate for changing career and starting from the bottom again/allow me to have an extended period off. WCPGW?

It also means the company car goes back, so I can drive something less bland.

 

Am I the only one who immediately thought of this?

Yeah I've got a wooden VCS as well it's just he's got a junior so I was making sure it would do the same.

I don't have many games and god knows where they've got to. Of course I managed to find games for the 400, 7800 and intellivision but sod all 2600.
