The audition and lyrics after the jump
We can exclusively reveal that in a shock move Rockstar Games in Edinburgh have released a demo of Grand Theft Auto IV early exclusively on the ZX Spectrum!
The game requires that you load up a specially adapted Windows XP that over clocks the Z80 CPU traditionally @ 3.5 MHz to 3.5 GHz!
We are currently on tape 25 of 300 having a “R Tape loading error, 0:1” failure the first attempt.
Having realigned the head our second attempt at loading has taken 4 hours so far…..
Drunk Russian sleeps off knifing
Russian men drinking vodka (archive image from 2007)
One report said the two men had been drinking vodka
A Russian man trying to sleep off a night of after-work drinking failed to notice a six-inch (15-cm) knife in his back – until his wife woke him up.
Yuri Lyalin, 53, took a bus home, ate breakfast and apparently slept like a baby before his spouse noticed a handle sticking out of his back.
He was rushed to casualty but doctors found no vital organs damaged.
Mr Lyalin shrugged the episode off but the drinking partner who stabbed him faces trial, Russian media report.
“Unique and intriguing the case may be, but the accused faces a severe punishment,” said Pavel Vorobyov, a deputy prosecutor in the northern city of Vologda.
‘We were drinking’
Mr Lyalin, an electrician, had spent the evening drinking with a watchman at his workplace when they got into an argument, Interfax news agency reports.
The morning found him waking up in the watchman’s office but instead of going back to work, he decided to take the bus home.
At home, Mr Lyalin had some sausage from the fridge and lay down to sleep, the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper says.
After a couple of hours, his wife noticed the handle sticking out of his back and called an ambulance.
Viktor Belov, a surgeon who treated him, found a kitchen knife in Mr Lyalin’s back but “by good fortune, it had gone through soft tissue without touching vital organs”.
His alleged attacker reported the crime to the police himself, Interfax adds. Mr Lyalin apparently feels fine and bears no ill-will.
“We were drinking and what doesn’t happen when you’re drunk?” he was quoted by Komsomolskaya Pravda as saying.
Its amazing what Vodka can do for you!
Then you’ve gotta get yourself some Philippines candy cigarettes, dude! All the fastest animals in Mobius put away 60 a day!
