More seriously though, if they don't feel or look like you're used to then there's no harm in getting your doctor to have a butcher's.

Never really got on with mine. Bought a Kensington Orbit many years ago and It's just chucked in a drawer now.


That's what I'm using, yesterday I swapped the red LED for a nice green one! Looks a bit mystical now, not as brig<snip>

Yep, she's smart. Had an awesome end of year school report for her last week. Above expectations in all 13 subjects and 99.5% attendance. She'll do fine.

I went to a game programming convention [aka massive booze up] in Newcastle with James Mintram a few years ago, there was the usual mix of indie and commercial... James was off floating around and I started talking to these two fella's, they worked for<snip>

Sure!
Going at her own rate, she'll be able to pick things up as she needs to.
If she gets stuck, you're always available to help.

Be sure to keep asking to see what she's been doing, though, as she may be too shy to ask for help herself.

I bought it from Amazon at 9ish last night. 8:30am it arrived. How the hell.....??!?!

Anyway...

It's pretty awesome - very easy to follow. I had a quick look at Scratch a few months back and it seemed OK, but I didn't really want my kid go<snip>

Yeahh bought a copy for T-bob, he's expressed some interest in coding but a nice book for him would be handy Thanks for the recommendation GfK

Ehh, gaming is what you make of it I guess. I'm still enjoying pokemon go when I head out to work in the mornings, retro gaming is great fun and yeah, some games on Steam are pretty cool too, I've really enjoyed playing Gal Gun of late, heheh.

I must admit, I'm managing alarmingly well with my laptop's trackpad thing.
I honestly never thought I'd be able to cope with just a trackpad, but.. Yeah, it's not as bad as I expected.

Only downside is it's absolutely bloody useles<snip>

Anything to get the kids into coding is worth a shot and £4 isn't a lot. Hopefully it'll be fun for you all

I absolutely agree with all both of you are saying. The state of gaming now, really is horrendous. Sure, there are some really, really great games out there, but do I actually enjoy gaming more now than when I owned my CPC, Amiga or MegaDrive? Obviously no<snip>

In many ways, I think this is why I've stuck with Nintendo. Sega were the same before their leap into the abyss.

Nintendo make sure that the game is fun. And they've had shitloads of bad press for that. AAA shouldn't be "happy green<snip>

Tonight I've been musing over Scratch, pondering my activities with Unity, harking back to the mid-1980s and my time spent at a CPC464. It makes you feel all warm and floaty. Then my brow furrowed slightly as I recalled how, about two days ago, I was<snip>

Found this. Has pretty good reviews and at four quid it's worth a punt! Paid more than the book's worth for next-day delivery so hopefully it'll give my kid sommat to do in the school hols.
