    Also Forbes Magazine reports that rights from a Hollywood adaptation of Asteroids are on offer alongside the sale of the Atari logo itself.

    Heard that one - Dwayne Johnson is up for one of the parts ... as a target. After all, he is "The Rock". (sorry, couldn't resist)

    Actually with the current fad for doing films based on toys, games and comics, (Transformers, Battleship, Avengers/Iron Man), I can see this coming off. Maybe do an "evil aliens plan to drop dinosaur killers on earth" type peril film. Just hope it's a lot better than other game adaptions - e.g. Wing Commander leaps to mind.

    Actually parent company Infogrames is also a blast from the past - I remember seeing their aardvark-type logo on a couple of games, might even have some for my Amiga in the loft.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    The Pompey Pirates, Medway Boys and Automation have finally crippled them.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
