It wasn't too bad yesterday either...it was quite pleasant walking along the beach and playing in the penny arcades in Weston.

.. speaking of arcades, I found an arcade museum in San Franscisco which had working machines from yester-year. I spent the afternoon playing, Galaxian, Space Invaders, Scramble (?) and Defender.

A nice even-paced run to work on a beautiful morning like this.

I love some of those old arcade games. On my wedding day me and my Mrs spent the morning playing centipede in the Luxor Hotel. The trackball on that game makes it all the more fun.

And she doesn't even like computer and arcade games!

Best six weeks of my life - wedding and honeymoon combined. Wish I could do it all again.

At no point was human centipede mentioned...although it wouldn't surprise me if Vegas offered that as a wedding theme. :wink:

Indeed. Will definitely make a pilgrimage up there at some point though. They've got Track & Field, 1942, Virtua Soccer, Space Harrier, R-Type among a million others. Amazing!

Not even close to the level of machines on offer in Manchester but I like going here from time to time (it's in Bristol):
