# I'm glad to see
that you've put that animation studio thing to good use.

That is VF spiffing I! With this hummus you are spoiling us.

I'm looking forward to part II. Was that Super Space Invaders, with the dodgy coloured acetate on the screen to change the invader's colours as they advanced?

I've just realised that I know an FPer. Coo! Can I touch the hem of your robe?

# It took me 3 days to put this together mate.
I had to paintmash all the different elements first...that was a bastard.

Then line them all up on each frame...that was a bigger bastard.

Finally animate and optimize...and THAT was the biggest bastard...until I used the s/w you sent.

Thanks.

# it is v. woo indeed
haha

just noticed that the embarrassed invader is called Mrs McKinley. We need names for the rest now, like the PacMan ghosts. Pinky, Blinky, Schminki and Eric weren't they?

also just got the mental image of Mrs McKinley chatting to Mrs Postlethwaite over the garden fence.

"Ooh, my laser's giving me gip these days, and our Ethyl's kid, he's a worry. He's got himself involved with some lad called Defender. That'll be the death of him, you mark my words."

# Inky
Pinky, Blinky and Clyde, I thought.

# I knew that someone would know
it's just that the old grey matter failed me after Pinky and Blinky.

the next starter for 10: what were the names of the Fraggles? Wembley, Red, Mokey, Goober and someone else I think. It's been bugging me for months, but I've never got around to googling.
