Hi everyone,

  1. Thanks! I think the office will happen next year. πŸ™‚

    I will be at my folks as well for 2 days. I lost last weekend due to the cold but I will try to get some stuff published before Sunday. The end of the year always makes you want to do big Amiga things for the next year. πŸ™‚


  2. Hi mate! πŸ™‚

    That’s good to hear. Hope you’ll get the office ready for action in 2012. πŸ™‚

    Have a good trip to your folks and Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚

    What do you have for Christmas dinner by the way?

    Looking forward to read more posts from you in the future!


  3. There will be a lot of food and alcohol. That is why we stay the night. It will be chicken, potatoes, other sorts of meat, soup, ice cream etc. Ah the memories it will bring back. πŸ™‚


  4. Top post mate! I love this idea, has that ‘greetz’ feeling from way back when. I can almost feel the Razor1911 love!. Retro Christmas greetings to you too ^_^


  5. A very Merry Christmas to you too. Have a wonderful vacation and here’s hoping the jolly fat fella brings you a sack full of retro goodies.

    Kind regards
