The New Paperweight - it's great!

Despite all advice & best wishes from the TOG think-tank, web searches, tips from Deep Blue and Bill Gates Himself, that issue still remains. The BIOS utterly vanishes the minute it achieves a successful...

Oh yes, I truly think I did!

Episodes 6, 7 and 8 have now all been mastered, re-mastered and uploaded ready for your aural entertainment. That brings us right up to date, and it means I might actually fit in some serious gaming tonight!

...except Redgum and Father are waiting for new forum signatures. Oooh that Redgum - why you gotta go needing change, man? Never change a winning formula! (In all honesty, I'm really excited about doing this one... i want to prove to myself...
