OK, every so often I throw a challenge out, most of which get ignored:p.

It's 'that' time of the year again (bah humbug) so here goes. Your challenge is to put together the Twelve AmiBay Days of Christmas. To do this, you should select retro computing or console references that would fit into and sound similar to the original song, e.g.

"And a cartridge for a Laserjet 3."

(Crap example I know, but hey..:oops:)

I know you lot can do a LOT better than that.. so let's see how creative you can be.. I reckon you all know the song and if you don't, Google can help you..

Good Effort Guys! :D

Although, If I ever see 11 Miggies gaming at the same time, without one deciding to not boot for no apparent reason whatsoever, I may have to have a sit down from the shock! :p
