On Sunday I will be upgrading the software to the latest version this will mean downtime of approx half a day. (assuming all goes well)
This has to be done as we are out of mainstream support now.
Use to go to Dayvilles all the time do not recall the arcade games, but would go from Rednal into town and pick up ice cream for me mum, I would always get some kind of shake mid to late 70's.
One time running around town on our lunch break driving in a Mini Moke I owned I turned left up the side of Dayvilles the guys started laughing I look around one guy is eating a ice cream cone ?, as I made the turn some poor guy was on the curb with his cone and my work mate leaned out of the Moke and took it, that became a big problem later that day at work.
Dayvilles was one of the only places in the city centre open on sundays in the 80s. I remember it being full of truants and cigarette smoke down stairs on week days and seemed like a “bad” place to hang out. Anyone remember the hot dogs on heated rollers in the window? They were quite expensive and I don’t think I ever saw anyone buy one.
