Hello all,

Been meaning to sigh up here for a while but when I heard my name (Matt Brown) mentioned as one of the facebook fans in the latest podcast it spurred me on.

Listened to all the podcasts now (yes even the MULE one!). Enjoying the tech stuff as I'm in the process of trying to get a Vectrex up and running again. So the monitor discharge and capacitor replacement info has been really useful - cheers Scott. Also I'm building a MAME cab so that series was handy.

I run a fairly regular retro event in Aldershot where I take over my sisters pub and fill it with old consoles and computers. We then get drunk and play games all day (see signature). I'll add some more details about it later. Off to work now....

Welcome to the club, way to go organizing your own event! I like the way you and your sis run that pub, if I find myself in that area I will be sure to drop in! More likely than you think.

We will be camping this weekend. Going to Lake Havasu, AZ for this:

Tricia's uncle travels around to all these contests so we are joining him there and going to be eating real well the next 3 days :)

So I will probably be off the forums this weekend. Be back on Sunday.

A whole weekend of eating. You Americans do like to live up to your stereotypes! Not sure I'd be very welcome there though, I'm vegetarian. I still find it amusing that you guys bought London Bridge of us. Have fun :L
