Thank you on your kind words.

Glad all is well. My two boys where born this time of year after weeks of hot weather in the UK. Their poor mum really had suffered.

So now when she says jump, you ask what flavour she'd like.

Good luck with the sleepless nights and in a few years time, don't hog the Lego. :)

I'm a bit of a tech hoarder but I've been gradually recycling hardware down to the bare minimum this last two years. Not so much with the software.

You mentioned playing Golf a while back and I knew I had a golf game somewhere in the collection. Found it today. Microsoft Golf MM edition circa 1993. Physics are still great, graphics are good for the time but the sound is just weird. Still gonna play it for a while.

Also unearthed the old Trackmania games. Nautilus will be busy with baby and mom so I'll step in. Best arcade racing game ever IMO. Most of the fun is in building and racing your own tracks and seeing/running others.

Hehe, did you start Trackmania 2020?

Despite I bought Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate, I play more and more Trackmania 2020. I really like it. But I play basic version (free version) where you are not able to build your own maps, but have my own goals in free version. 

First step, finished all training maps with Author Medals, and I'm attacking Summer 2020 maps. Managed to do first 19 tracks with Author medal.

Moreover, I started new YT channel dedicated for TrackMania.

Feel free to add me as friend if you would play Trackmania 2020. Game name is always the same 😂

TM 2020 is still in its cellophane but I think it's just a rebuild of TM Nations (could be wrong).

But what a wonderful company Nadeo is compared to GL. I wrote to them because the anti-pirating software they used meant you couldn't run the original TM and TM Sunrise on the same machine.

They sent me, by post, replacements plus white copies (no CD keys) and full source code, asked if I could fix it. It was a simple registry error caused by StarForce not them.

15 years later they're with Ubisoft and still send me freebies.

And buy a full copy of one of them, there cheap. The fun is in track design. Very addictive. :)

FWIW, I asked our CM to take care of a certain troll account. We'll see what happens.
