Talking of old school computers, did anyone ever experience playing Granny's Garden (and the subsequent horrifying nightmares that followed) on those old old ACORN computers at school? Or, am I showing my age..?

Is that the one where you had to memorise a map and walk over 'safe' tiles?
We had some kind of animal game too where you played as a badger I think, and you got fleas and had to dip your head in the river to kill them .

Anyone heard of an educational game called "Pod"? (not the racing game)
It was on our school computer (we only had one).
Anyways, you had this kind of ball-shaped guy called Pod, and you just told him what you wanted him to do, and he'd do it. Like, you'd type "Pod Jump" and he'd jump up in the air. My favourite was "Pod Pop"

Only consoles I ever owned were an N64 and PS1, and I game them both away
There's a Viglen Genie 286 in the attic, which I'm hoping will become a valuable collector's item. It has a big "turbo" button on the front that boosts the speed up to an incredible 12MHz!

That really rings a bell. I think we had on one of our old school computers. We also had a puzzle game that my memory completely fails at recalling in any great detail. You had to rebuild ladders out of bits on one of the levels, is all I really remember...
