Just about to start some pad hack work myself (thanks again EnterNow), decided to use a terminal strip after all.

Just a clean and prep for the new screen cover I have coming next week.

Also the controls needed some lubrication so I did that as well as some new battery contacts.

Its from that large haul of retro stuff I got last week.
Just needs a little love and it'll be perfect.

I hope the screen cover coming next week is better than the Nomad screen cover I got the other day. Really low quality it is.

Everything Indy used to be before George got his sticky mitts on the scripts, it was packed with action, had a story that made some sense, it had a great cast and was beautifully animated.

I can't wait to see the next one!
Went to see it with the family myself, the animation is excellent nice storyline and action packed from start to finish, what surprised me was how faithful to the source material it tried to be I wasn't expecting it to be anywhere as good as it was

Watched Senna last night and as a huge fan of the man I can only say I was slightly dissappointed by the movie, it was like a lazer beam focusing on himself and Prost with little or no mention of the epic battles he had with Mansel and other drivers.

does anybody know where I can get a replacement LCD screen for the original Gameboy DMG-001 as I want to repair my old one I've had since 1989 (ish).
I can't seem to find one anywhere

Email Tim from Rewind Bits, he may be able to source one for you. He certainly won't mind you asking anyway

Been looking forward to it for a while. May get to it tomorrow.

Stephen Moffat who does Doctor Who wrote it.
