It's not preferred, but sometimes it's OK to use snips. A very leaky A600 was thankful for them this week.

Prototype UNITHOR has been on show in The Cave for a few weeks. Feedback interesting. Pros: A solid build quality and sturdy base. Cons: It’s been a long time since we gamed on digital flight sticks so feels odd until used a lot. Uni-Joy kickstarter is soon if this is your jam 🕹

So astonished to find an actual Mega Drive game in a charity shop today I had to take a photo. I know it’s “only Sonic” but there’s no way I could leave it on the shelf. It has the tag too so it goes in the fake shop for visitors #sega
