    A bit too sugary coated for me, also, too much PC basis....Or, I'm just a grump ;)

    Agree with both you guys - the bloke is way too rose tinted, DJ-esque and OTT and the content is way-too PC orientated - he could have referenced a lot more Commodore/Atari goings on... did he mention either at all?! But there were parts which were entertaining so I take your points too, Al. I did enjoy the Amstrad CPC464 part so we can't say he ignored the Brit scene cos he deffo mentioned it (and all those US modem owners... 44% had one back then - not in the UK they didn't back then...I would hazard to guess about 4%!)

    I think, without wanting to sound too biased, we need the UK equivalent gadger? :)

    Keep looking, fellas.
