When browsing the store, it's so easy to imagine a tidy little home warehouse with everything carefully organised.

Yeah, didn't have a belt, or I probably have some belts, just don't know where, but need to find some really :lol:

Maybe I'm not (completely) mad just yet then...though others may have a different opinion :D :lol:

Keep getting distracted from all things Atari by life in general (and now have a Yamaha Pacifica Electric guitar to distract me further...couldn't resist it for a little over £34 & seems just to need a re-string)...or was it the constant comments whenever I "messed up" the tuning of one of my wife's guitars?...) :P

Guess I need to select my 'donor' ST for the Mongrel...but it's a bit like asking which of your children you want to sacrifice... :cry: :cry:

Our postman asks questions when there isn't a box delivered here for more than 2 days.. same with DHL..Fedex... UPS... Bit much when they start waving at you in town and you no idea who they are until they "remind" you :lol:

Going to get some odd looks in the post office when I clutter the whole place up with H4 boxes :lol: :twisted: :twisted:
