I heard this - very good, worth a listen - Douglas Adams comment about working to Deadlines was funny - "I like Deadlines, I like the woosh-ing noise they make as they go past"

... or something like that...

Yeah, he also mentioned about this on QI a while back, i think it was around the time when the BBC had that retro week from the 70`s upwards.

Cheers,

Go radio 4! (shhhhh!)

Did you all see the retro 8 bit thing last year? - Micromen on BBc2 i think and the family using the bbc micro pretending to be in the 80s... very good. Its so easy to forget have far and how quickly technology has moved on. Amiga aside of course....

The Amiga was brilliant....so far ahead in 1985 and so far behind by 1994!

Commodore - the movie! or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the PC
