Well the metal centipede didn't work as you can't pass through from one cable to another directly which Thomas pointed out to me.

He also pointed me the direction of the correct adapter which actually will work a lot better and I can use it to make a port on the back of the cd-rom drive to neaten things up:

I will post what I have done in the hardware thread for anyone who is interested - trying to make it neat first.

Only £2 each as Kindle books.
I am considering getting this book about Sega of America and some iconic Sega games. Retail price is much higher, more like 15,50 €. Full title "Playing at the Next Level : A History of American Sega Games" by Ken Horowitz.

Horowitz surname sounds familiar! No relation to Anthony Horowitz who wrote Moriarty?

Kindle versions are very cheap but you can also buy PDF directly from fusion books which I suppose gives them better revenue?

I got Powerglove for the Amiga and it looks like a very fun and professionally made game. Pity it doesn't have a save feature.

Two Batman games for the Spectrum - Ritman & Drummond‘s 1985 Batman and Batman The Caped Crusader - next to my dented Amiga copy of Batman The Movie.

Ocean did an amazing job on that franchise. 3 totally different games, all brilliant in their own way.

I ordered a series of comics on Amazon called Sin City. I am a fan of both graphic novel and the films.
Last week I got some eft currency here for WoW to improve my gaming experience in the game

Strangely, i'm not a comic collector, but bought a series of 5 comics still bagged/boarded called Lightstep from Dark Horse Comics! These were a Kickstarter comic (which I didn't back) and were tied in with the release a PC Game called Lightstep Chronicles from Eipix Entertainment.

Just one of those strange purchases people make for no apparent reason

I recently snagged an A500 on a whim! the usual I had a few tots of whiskey and hit Ebay which usually ends badly lol

But I am well chuffed! I was not expecting that much of this bundle, its actually in dam good condition, appears to have no damage and both seals are intact and appears to be in full working condition.

The keyboard has the small return key like the plus, but its defo a 1.3. I also got a GVP HD8+ from the same seller. All of it was one-owner from new! Shame the boxes are long gone though.

Need to get some pictures uploaded and do a good clean/service.
