Liking this - Thanks :)

On a similar topic - Does anyone know where there's a scanned in copy of one of those 'Beat The Arcade' books with the early 80's classics? (Pac, Defender, Missile Command, etc)

I had a link to that stuff somewhere... see if I can dig it out. I probably have the pdf someplace too. I ended up buying most of those books, I'm a sucker for any printed material from the classic era.

I have a copy of this book somewhere - if I ever dig it out I can look into doing a scan.

Hey......You'd betta watch it as I'll chase you up on this.

Thanks for the books and lnks - read the Pacman stuff (not the whole Dossier stuff as yet) and on the DK book - inspiring me to revisit both via MAME.

Well don't hold your breath because I'm more than certain its located "over the pond" with the rest of my retro book/mag collection, but you never know once I start digging around!
