It's hard to say since I wondered what myself and the others would do without listmakers such as D0GMA and SK back in 2003 - 2005. We all had to carry on without their lists and eventually got over it. If something happened to me, however, as far as the B/P lists go, I'd ask if anyone's able to take over the list.
Also, a random question to everyone: Would I be crazy to dish out £50 on one PS1 game, even if it's rare?Depends on the condition of the box - has it been opened? Is it a collectible? Or is just a cool game that you want and you figure that if you don't get it now, you never will? More importantly, will it make you happy to have it? Sometimes, you just have to go for it...
There's a very very slim chance of seeing an unopened box of a PS1 game these days, so whatever I come across has most likely been played before. The games I've been after are becoming harder and harder to get and it's best to get them now before it's too late, despite the high price. Also, I'm definitely happy to be getting these rare games since some of them are I wanted at least 10 years ago, but never got them. So now I'm regretting not getting them back then, but as long as I get the games eventually, I'll be fine.

I'm going to London again on Tuesday, but this won't affect any of my updates at all since I'll be back on Friday, two days before I do the next B/P, EXP AND Wi/Ht? Regulars update. Next Sunday's going to be a lot of fun for me. In other news, I'm very close to semi-retirement.You are quite a bit closer to your saves retirement # than I thought you were planning on semiretiring at, BTW... whattup with that? #;-}>
I changed my mind in the end. Having 25 saves to get left is more appropriate than 100. It's just the blams I'm concerned about since I could get 80 all of sudden.

So much better, it makes me really happy. :)
Gah! Well, can you take shorter breaks from now on?Every now and then. BUT NOT ALWAYS.
I wish it could be always.

Hey, Coop should be saying that. :P He seems quite desperate to pass EVERYONE in the B/P list as well as the EXP list. o_O But yeah, if you get to the late 70,000's, you shall pass me then. Same thing goes for all the other active B/P'ers.
Also, a random question to everyone: Would I be crazy to dish out £50 on one PS1 game, even if it's rare?Not really. Depends on how much of a fanboy you are for the game. For example, I would pay silly amounts of money for an english version of Mother 3.
I don't think I'm a fanboy since I love a lot of Playstation games, Nintendo games and PC games. However, my biggest department would be have to be the PS1 since not only that's where my gaming frenzy started, but I've played roughly 80 games on that console (including demos and games I've borrowed) and that list will only expand soon. As a big PS1 fan, I'm willing to spend lots on games that may never hit the PS3 store.
Also, I've heard of the troubles with the Mother series. It's a shame since after seeing Ness on the Super Smash Bros. series, people would be having a look into the Mother franchise, but oh, the only game that came out outside Japan was EarthBound and that game never came out in Europe. :( And from what I've heard, it may never come out here, not even on Virtual Console, which is a damn shame.
