    A ZX81 from 1981?
    Ohhh I have four of these little beasties still knocking around in the shed somewhere...including the extra 1k RAM expansions! I remember trying to use one to control the stage lights at a gig and watched in joy/horror as it melted after working perfectly for about 4 seconds.
    I was going to have a guess with the Oric-1 but...too late as usual.

    I'm just gonna ask one, assuming I got the previous...

    These days many ladies like a drop of the black stuff.

    So the question is, how many pints could you give Patricia before she's full ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,616 ✭✭✭✭ OldGoat


    Hummmm, is it an anagram? Nope, no "n" in Patricia. Oooh what if the black stuff could be read as Guinness or Beamish or Murphys. Pattsy Murphy? Trisha Beamish? Patricia Guinness? Hey wait...was one of the Guinness boats called Patricia?
    Nice one Cptn. Midnight.
    Now, anyone know the capacity of the boats?

    Yep they are. I'm quite fond of the rusty men and you have to admire the ego of the man to repeatedly puttting his effugee on display like that. :-)
    The artist was in the Irish press recently. We commissioned a piece from him to sit in the Liffy but because we are broke/strapped for cash we cancelled the commision.

    Okey Doke,

    The quote on my signature, what's it from?


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭✭ rojerdandry


    The Divine Comedy by Dante.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,461 ✭✭✭ --Kaiser--


    Sorry, I meant this one;

    "You might button it all the same"


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭✭ rojerdandry
