The Register's radioactive key rings


The Register's radioactive key rings

So, I bought a set of four tritium keyrings from The Reg when I was living in the UK in the early 2000's. They were advertised as having a half-life of 10 years, which seems pretty accurate. I still have, and use, them all today (moved back to Aus in 2004). They're still glowing, faintly.

Anyone else still have their tritium keyrings from The Reg?

The curse of having an Amstrad

I ended up with about a half-dozen of those books - the Adventure one was the first book we got when we got our CPC464 back in 1985. Typed it in with my dad. Never quite worked properly. But I never remember seeing any of the customisations for Amstrad :(

Just ...

remove T21 basic service (SM-MT) from the subscriber's profile. Seems a major nuisance though as they won't be able to receive SMs anymore
