The Boxing Calculator

Apologies for the abscence blame the snow, everyone else is Laughs Out Loud.
Bit of a blast from the past this one ~ the Casio BG-15 Electronic Calculator Clock & Boxing Game! I remember being the talk of my class after finding one of these babies in WHSmith. (And a lot of nagging to Mum of course!) Before long half the school had one, and a few paid more attention to these things than the old BBC computers we had set up in the Maths classroom.

A nifty little calc

I was going to see if I could pick one up on one of the auctions sites but so far the lowest price ive seen was £80 and I cant justify spending so much on a calculator at this time of year, especially when most should be tightening their belts (including me.) I'll stick it on top of my car boot hunting list, who knows I might get lucky?

In Car Dreamcast

Nevermind the radio, heres the Sega Dreamcast!

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE the Dreamcast console. Like the Speccy before it, it fed my gaming addiction but there was 'something' more about it. Ive never been able to put my finger on it, it was just an amazing console to me. (And I know im not alone.)
So imagine my delight when I stumbled across the photo above. I'll admit its more than likely fake because the Dreamcast wasn't designed to be played upright but still, it looks GOOD and now my car will always feel like its missing a wheel.
