    The trouble with miniaturisation. You would never have had that problem with an 8" floppy.

    I couldn't resist... after seeing this post I pulled out my shoebox full of GBA stuff last night. I must have gotten rid of the GBA at some point, but I still have:

    2x GB Micro's & chargers
    1x GB Advance SP (frontlit version) & charger
    ~ 15 Advance games

    None of them have been on in almost 3 years. The SP definitely hasn't been on in over 3 years. All 3 powered up first time, and I played a full 18 hole round of Mario Golf on the silver Micro before going to sleep!

    That wouldn't happen with a PSP. I know this because my bro's has been here for a year and it doesn't hold a charge for a couple of months, never mind years! :D

    That's always something that intrigues me, how quickly technology advances during war time ( and not just weapons/destructive technologies ), and how far behind we would still be if not for conflicts that claimed countless lives...

    ^^^ I suspect that is not true, I'm afraid. Chocolate mixed with ground hazelnut is the common recipe for praline, well-known to any chocolatier or pastry chef.

    From Wikipedia:

    "As originally inspired in France at the Château of Vaux-le-Vicomte by the cook of the 17th-century sugar industrialist Marshal du Plessis-Praslin (1598–1675), early pralines were whole almonds individually coated in caramelized sugar. Although the New World had been discovered and settled by this time, pecans and chocolate-producing cocoa (both native to the New World) were originally not ingredients in European pralines. The European chefs used local, easily available and relatively cheap ingredients: nuts such as almonds and hazelnuts.

    The powder made by grinding up such sugar-coated nuts is called pralin, and is an ingredient in many cakes, pastries, and ice creams. When this powder is mixed with chocolate, it becomes praliné in French, which gave birth to what is known in French as chocolat praliné (chocolate praline). The word praliné is used colloquially in France and Switzerland to refer to these, known simply as "chocolates" in English, i.e. various centres coated with chocolate. In Europe, the word praline is used to mean either this powder or the paste made from it, often used to fill chocolates, hence its use by synecdoche in Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium to refer to filled chocolates in general. In the United Kingdom, the term can refer either to praline (the filling for chocolates) or, less commonly, to the original whole-nut pralines.

    In Europe, the nuts are usually almonds or sometimes hazelnuts."

    My nephew told me the other day "this is an Orchard Pudding", when he clearly meant yorkshire pudding.

    Here's a cat modelling one

    Dear Zalman,

    i suggest drinking a bit less alcohol before you start designing, or you will come up with things like this again.
