Re: Dark Castle.

Oh dear. :lol: I like the very strange sound effects. "Squeak! Squeak!" Bats. "Ooh!" Guy with whip. :lol:

Then again, it was 1986. ;) I remember playing "Dr J vs. Larry Bird" on the Commodore 64 back then. :lol:

Re: Tim Curry

Is Tim Curry playing IT, then? ;)

By the way - there's still the matter of the tiny flesh-coloured bit, just about the t-shirt. ;) Sory - I did live theatre for years, so those bits stick out like a sore thumb for me. :)

Not surprised, no. I'd be more surprised if you hated it. ;)

Re: Describe the least-appealing game

An RPG with lots and lots of "hunt-the-pixel" mini-games that you must complete in order to construct some long-lost key or some nonsense, which (again) you need in order to proceed into some area or other. Because someone in your party wants you to.

Oh, wait.

Re: I got a new job!

Thanks, BBP. :) Woo-hoo! :D Got a call from an agent earlier today - he checked out my resume on Seek and thought I'd be ideal for his client. He talked to me on the phone and he's happy to send me across to his client, but I'll also come in and meet him later tonight. Got off the phone with him abo...

Re: I got a new job!

Thanks, Bob. :| At least with contracts you get sick pay and holiday pay (generally). My situation was a casual, which is even worse - just filling in for someone who was sick. As soon as they got better ... there's the door, mister. Basically they kick you in the pants and then wonder why you don't...

How cool is this?

I just heard about Cat Cafe Melbourne , in the heart of the CBD (Central Business District) of my town. Nice! :) It's a space where the humans save rescue cats and give them a warm space to live and share with other humans. I might check it out the next time I'm in the CBD. Some more info about them...

Oh, no... words fail me.

French farmer taken to court because his wealthy retiree neighbours complain that his rooster crows too loudly. This story was also quoted by the Indpendent, the Grauniad, the NY Times, the Telegraph and the BBC - possibly because it's too ridiculous for words. I'm no farmer, but ... seriously? If ...

Re: I got a new job!

Thanks, Qbix. I was already looking for other work while working there, because I knew it wasn't going to last long (maybe 3 weeks - although the money was good). So, it's not like I thought I would be there forever. But still. Anyway, the good news is that I found and applied for other work already...

Re: Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry

LSL: WDDD is now on sale at GOG, right here. So go give it a try if you like. ;) Most reviews (with one exception) seem to say that it's good. :)

Re: I got a new job!

Well ... I'm gutted. :( I was filling in for a permanent while she was on sick leave, and this afternoon, I was called into an empty office by the boss's 2IC and given my marching orders, because the permanent is coming back on Monday. :( Now, I knew I was on a short-term assignment, but three days ...

Re: PAX WEST with some familiar faces!

Sounds like a great trip, MI! I'm happy for you that you got to meet so many fabulous people.

And no, I'm not jealous at all ... no, siree ... *sticks hands in pockets, whistles a random tune*

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

:lol: "Bad Reboot". I like that. :)

I have no opinion either way about SW or ST. I just like the picture.
