Game Link / YouTube Retro Event in Spalding



Very random footage from the retro event held at Murfadurf83's Game Link in Spalding on 11/12 June 2011. This footage is all from the Saturday.

The store is Game Link, 46 Holbeach Road, Spalding, United Kingdom.

These are just a few of the great people who I met there.

If you're in this video and I haven't named you, my apologies... I was completely not on the case through lack of sleep. I know there are people who I know, and spoke to... but names evade me. Please a leave a comment and I will name/link you.

I'd like to say a huge big thanks to Dave, Retr0Rewind, for taking me along with him, and excellent work to Martin, murfadurf83 for setting up such a great event. Nicely done!

Friday Talkie: Stick In The Mud?



Talking about the need for console manufacturers to find a new direction, and how I don't much like it.

I'm going to the retro gamers meetup thingie in Spalding tomorrow, so I'll see you there if you're going.

Ads and layouts

I'm rationalising the page layouts, removing under-performing advertising and replacing those ads with useful and relevant links.
It's time consuming and probably won't immediately help the performance of the site, but it does provide improved content, if only in a small way.
So a cursory glance at the site might suggest there's not much happening here, but the truth is, I'm busy as hell :)
