Next cover - Did I miss it?

So a while ago we all read the update about the ace new branded Speccy Next covers that are in the pipe. We all drooled over those sexy pictures of the samples. Well, it was mentioned in the announcement that pre-orders would be in the store I'm the new year. Well, I think I've been keeping a regula...

Re: DeltaShadow: 8-Button-Kempston-Compatible Joystick

Whilst the BT version is reported as working, it is also reported to have significantly increased lag. Get the 2.4GHz non-BT version. You can still find it on EBay (seems Amazon no longer carries it in the UK).

Re: Using a Disciple with the Next
