About to get my first place
That will do me nicely!
So I'm a retrogamer. I think MAME is the best use of a computer ever. But uh, this is lame even to me. I figured at least you could shoot them by stepping in different areas or something.

Not sure I follow. Are you just excited you posted first? What is this a Yahoo group? And you must be a tween right?
Sheesh, and I though El Reg moderated these posts.
For another wipe?

Are you a bit thick, or what?
Paris, for obvious reasons.
A geek would buy that mat, but a REAL GEEK would build the mat and make it better, faster, stronger, nanananananana
