A feature I would really love in a chair is electronic configuration. It would save my settings (or maybe I'd have them on an SD card) and if anyone screwed it up, I could just punch a button and it would reset to the right height, tiltedness, etc. Right now, I have to punch the person and then spend 3 days intermittently and unsuccessfully fiddling with the random levers to find something that's close to what I remember.
You know those awful CDs you see advertised occasionally, the ones “packed full of classic Spectrum games!!!!”? The ones that are basically downloaded disk images of old games packaged with a few shoddy emulators? They’re illegal, immoral, and prey on novice computer users unaware that the discs are both unnecessary (all the files are online) and illegal. Well a company named Rocketship Services was selling these CDs and advertised them on some Spectrum newsgroup. Not the most sensible move because a Spectrum newsgroup is where you will find people who are very knowledgeable about emulation and its various legal aspects.
Somebody on the newsgroup tracks the domain down to – yes – Stuart Campbell. Stu then bascially admits he owns the domain but somehow claims he’s got nothing to do with the seller of the CDs. Maybe he’s telling the truth? Well, no, because the excellent newsgroup people do some research and notice that the address you send the money to is Stu’s address, only under the name of Norman McIntosh. Stu deflects this by claiming that it’s a “huge block of rented office units” and it must be someone else. So, Stu lives in an office block? He rents an office? No, we all know this isn’t true. Sadly, in the days when this all happened, Google Streetview didn’t exist. But it does now!
HUGE BLOCK OF RENTED OFFICE UNITS
Once the waiter puts the last plate of food in front of you, the restaurant wants your ass out of there as fast as possible.
