Looks like a nice fair to me. Unfortunately Paragon_Leon and i will not attend this day.

Paragon_Leon has to work that day, the whole day so the Shirt's 4all challenge will have to go without him. Yes, he is the one who 'accused' Wolf of cheating etc.etc. but as said his job is more important than catching t'shirts.

Have a nice day though !

He would like to have the challenge go on to prove that Wolf can make those scores anywhere.


Oh, and he ordered his shirt and got it. Where´s mine!" Crying

"Nintendo DS Kiosk" ?
hm.. are there many DS owners at Bussum? Not to spoil the MSX fun of course, but what keeps us from some wireless gaming? Tongue

I have Mario DS, RR DS, Another Code (but I don't think it has multiplayer), Nanostray, Yoshi touch 'n go, Project Rub, and (I guess like everyone) the Metroid Prime demo...

oh, but fortunately, most require just 1 cart for multiplayer...
of course, we could always have a big lousy chat session over pictochat Tongue (It's not like we actually could speak to each other when we're in the same building Wink )
... 'guess I'll bring mine with me Wink You never know Wink
