Big thanks to Rene, for the C7060!! 

It's brought my O2 into the present day, and it's like Christmas with all these new games, that I've never had access to!

Also found this little goody on Ebay, and couldn't pass it up.

Awesome shirt!

I know!  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the listing!  I used to play Quest with my friends (too many years ago now), and it actually was one of my favorite games, and then to see this?  Once in a lifetime find, by my standards  :)

Thanks!  Like I said, once in a lifetime find for something like this! 

The crazy thing about items like this, is unless a seller is really up to speed on what they are listing, and who best to market it to, then it usually gets listed in a category that a prize hunter might not think to look in.   

I was lucky here, that the seller of this just randomly threw it in the video games category, but I did see where someone had sold the complete set of the Odyssey 2 Adventure Magazines, but had just listed them in the 'Back Issues Magazine' category, and whoever bought them, got them for ultra cheap!.  Definitely pays to think out of the box sometimes, when on the hunt for the obscure!

Nope, I was on holiday in Mallorca, Spain. Somehow they didn't have a Kings day there on April 30th :D.
Nice stuff found. What specs does the b/w tv need to have? I may know a place where they have a tiny 5" b/w tv.

black, crt , not too deep, cheap and not too much buttons and fuzz on the front panel and roughly the same width as the zx81 i intend to use it with.

I checked the tv today, it's 5.5" inch i guess, has uhf vhf and monitor input.
Needs a 12v powersupply not included, don't know if it works, and don't know if it is b/w only. But the price was 10 euro i think it is a bit to expensive.

The X-Arcade Tankstick! This thing is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. After working out some glitches (mainly figuring out how to make it work properly with MAMEUI and as a regular controller for other games/emulators), I'm lovin' it~! My score on UFO! has gone up considerably from what it was using the keyboard.
