Yes. At least Robert does.

Well after dragging those two Amigas almost the whole length of the country, and hauling them around London for half a day, they have sat in a corner gathering dust the whole of the first tournament day! There were more than enough stations without them. The only silver lining is that I only have to drag one of them back again...

Always good to have spares due to the (ever more frequent) chance of hardware failure.
Your efforts are appreciated!

Thank you Stephen(s). Something for you to practise on so you can beat me 8-0 again.

It was only 7-0 wasn't it? And friendlies don't count anyway.

I could have done with one of those KO2CV discs they gave out at the end, but I will probably mostly play on the laptop emulator, it's more convenient than setting up the Amiga. And now I can play online against real people, and Lee!

I think before the next WC I attend, I will have some practice games on an Amiga, on the smeggiest bulge-screen TV I can find, with a German sitting next to me shouting in my ear to fully recreate the genuine competition scenario.
