    1970s Magic Markers (for maximum retro grouch).

    These raise a problem however, they use Benzine solvent ink, because nothing says 1970s like brain damage inducing chemicals in your felt tip pens. Drying them out shouldn't be difficult, but the cores wil need to be replaced before I put new ink in them. Anyone know where I can get blank marker pen cores from?

    I've never seen those before, always interesting to see old things. I'm a bit surprised there's any benzene left in them after 50 years!

    Might have to snap up the T1 depending how quickly pre-orders open up again.

    After much time biding, I finally found a copy if Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem for less than 30€ shipped.

    Edit: Also, decided to try dBPoweramp. I'm sorry, EAC, you've been a solid workhorse for a long time, but the tag writing of Poweramp is just.. better.

    That was fun. A lot of fun. And it brought back so many memories of my childhood.

    They used to be nicknamed "drug pens" because people used to sniff them to get mashed. Then it turned to glue.

    After spending 100 hours or so replaying the excellent Gears of War 5 campaign three times (two on Insanity difficulty :cooldude:), it's time my co-op friend and I find a new game to play. Disappointed it wasn't in the Halloween sale, but hey ho.

    Indeed, that is why I plan on drying them out and replacing the ink with modern Kurecolor inks to make them usable indoors.
