That reminds me of something. A person (visitor) asked me to fix a broken thing at some point - obviously because of the t-shirt. I told him "sorry, I'm just wearing the t-shirt". LOL! :mrgreen: :D

Great game, revolutionary at the time. Yet, it's not one of my favourites.

My favourite arcade game (well, my favourite game) of all-time is Defender.

Dear friends,

My health improved a bit. The fever stopped and my throat is way better. I still have a lot of pain in my body, specially in my joints.

All in all, I'm way better. Thanks!
