"It's like having an extra fizzy tongue in your mouth." | 12 March 2003 | week 311
Sorry about the delay on the site this week guys. Also, I was going ot have a full selection of retro photographs this week but ended up only having time to prepare one, so you don't get to see them!
I was very sad on Friday morning to get a message that the Slane gig had sold out. As you know, I was looking forward to going, but when I got to work I forgot to buy a ticket straight away. Stupid head! So now I am ticketless! Well I don't think I'll be buying one off a tout this time!
Already the Paddy's day tourists are arriving with their brightly coloured weather gear. Town was thronged with American accents last weekend, so this weekend there'll be tons of them around. Well not to worry, they'll be gone to sleep by the time the nights get going!
Susan, who you may know from the old recruitment ad, has joined Company P. On her first day she broke the desk record by sitting at no less than five desks by 3pm. The lack of space in the office is coming to a head, soon they'll be sitting in their cars in the car park with a laptop and a network cable out the window!
Anyone who has been following my progress with converting my arcade machine to run a PC with MAME, the arcade machine emulator, will be pleased to hear that it's nearly finished. My biggest stumbling block was getting the PC to run on the arcade monitor. I was originally going to use ArcadeOS, but that's not really a great solution: It causes problems if it crashes into DOS (or when the boot-up screens show) because the high frequency of modern PC monitors is too much for low-res arcade machine monitors.
Well I found the perfect solution: a specially made VGA card that outputs the correct refresh rate to the monitor, thus enabling me to use the arcade machine while DOS screens show, and Windows, even the web (theoretically). The card is on it's way with 10 new buttons for the control panel and should arrive soon! I hope to set up a side website for the project, if anyone is interested.
