#312641 Pushers?

Posted by stanmarsh14 on 10 December 2017 - 12:23 PM

Here's a vid of one of astra's fruit/pushers - cash vegas, I thiink the roms are in the dat (viva cash vegas?)   


Now this pusher is quite a rare beast, quite unlike most of the hybrid's out there, in that it uses a standard reel based game, to award a gold / silver / bronze type of access to the coin pusher part, with the award determining how many coins it will drop in to the pusher feature..... quite an enjoyable game.

#312469 Are you in good health and want to help others?

Posted by stanmarsh14 on 07 December 2017 - 07:05 AM

Bit of a story that may make you laugh, as to how I first became a blood donor.

Was working for Boots @ their HQ in Nottingham at the time, a few months previous, having had a load of dental work done due to neglect, as my old dentist was a right butcher, and as a result, gave me quite a fear of needles.

NBS had come to the D31 canteen on a collection drive, and was talking to one of me workmates, knowing I had not long been through the dental work, with a mental idea of using the blood drive as a way to get over my needle fear.

Turns up for donation, and explained my fear to the collection staff, who thought I was a bit bonkers, but if I ever needed a good excuse to get over such a fear, this was it..... kept telling myself stop being a selfish c***, you are helping someone else out, that whom was facing a much more grim outlook..... over 17 years later, still donating!

Bottom line is folks, if you can donate (Be it something as simple as blood, or Alex's stem cell suggestion), then do it, and don't let some fear that I had stop you..... even if it's just something as simple as blood donation.

If you are already a blood donor and considering bone marrow too, the NBS can arrange that at the time of donation also..... This time of year is often a hard time with blood donations, so if you can, DO IT!

You are not even forced to use central donation centres if you are some distance away from one (Fortunately I can get to mine, just a matter of timing at the mo), with collections done in many local areas, which can be found on their main site.

I'm already a blood donor (Due to donate any day now, but been difficult to get in to the Nottingham Donor Centre), and awhile back, did a signup for bone marrow too..... 2 years back, I very nearly got called up for a bone marrow donation, but was ill at the time, so could not donate.

#312396 Windows 7 - HP Pavilion Slimline Desktop

Posted by stanmarsh14 on 05 December 2017 - 11:32 PM

Just as a note..... anything before win 8, has separate Retail and OEM versions of the software, so you need to have the correct ISO to match the key you have.

You was able to about 18 months back, use a rather crafty java trick on the Microsoft store, to download whatever OS iso you needed, and that included OEM versions, but unfortunately that trick no longer works..... fortunately I grabbed all the ISO's it listed before the java trick was blocked, so I at least have all the current ISO's for the respective OS's..... all you need, is a legit key in which to use them.

You can still download win10 direct from the MS store with any legit install key, however with earlier OS's like win7, if you tried to use an OEM key, MS will reject it, and refer you to your OEM, like HP, Dell, ASUS etc.

Lastly, a warning for windows 7 users doing a new install..... due to a quite nasty memory leak, which locks up and freezes windows update, you need to run a patch after performing a new install, but before you use windows update.

Files are a bit on the large side, so for a short while, will open up the storage on my OneDrive so you can grab em.


#312292 The dark side of layouts?

Posted by stanmarsh14 on 04 December 2017 - 07:31 PM

That layout should get the wonky donkey award too ;)


I could recommend one of Pook's very first layouts for this, and even he admit's it's shite compared to what he turns out now..... sure it was a Barcrest Cloud 999 or similar.

First of all Alex..... we may not get one that great, but I don't need to remind you that health comes first, and is good that you are taking care of that, so you will have no quarms from me for doing that, so all the best, and hope you can get it sorted.

As for you so called inner circle monkeys.....

#311054 Old joke (it made me giggle)

Posted by stanmarsh14 on 15 November 2017 - 10:57 PM

So Jesus walked into a pub in Derby, got talking to a Scottish bloke who bought Jesus a scotch and Jesus touched him and cured his bad back.

He then walked in a pub in Nottingham and got talking to an Irish bloke who bought Jesus a Guinness, so Jesus touched him and his arthritis was cured.

Jesus walked in the Red Lion Heanor and everyone said 'f*** off, I'm on disability'.

#310683 BFM Cops N Robbers (Scorp2) ROM's

Posted by stanmarsh14 on 08 November 2017 - 08:50 AM

Sure the £10 ones you have should switch between £8 and £4 jackpot.


Scorp2 roms I have found generally not to be switchable on the JP at least :(

Looks like some have been found at MPU Mecca though, so thanks for trying folks :)

If you close your eyes whilst rubbing a Kiwi fruit in one hand and a testicle in the other, its hard to tell the difference...

It also gets you banned from Tescos!
