    I found alcohol quite a while ago :). My main distraction is motor mechanics.

    Being from blackpool - I thought the distraction was more about cheap slappers and jail bait??

    Long time since ive been to blackpool so things might have changed since then...

    I was looking for this thread awhile back. When I was building my PC back in 09', I lived on this thread. Nice to see it back up. Hopefully more to come :toast: :rockout: :pimp:

    Used to have some sleep trouble, nothing awful but more than average, especially some nights. What seems to have cured it for me has been my first two proper massages (at around age 30), one deep tissue (1hr) and one reflexology (45min), in the last month or so. What was previously a struggle to get up at 8+ hours sleep is now an average of around 5.5 to 6, a max of under 8, and i'm always up before the alarm. always. Also I'm more awake generally.

    it's night and day really. try it! Also, go to professionals, it makes a big difference, and if you can only do one perhaps go for reflexology. Sort out your footwear too people :)

    You know were the video was taken as the area reminded me of a part of Newcastle-upon-lyme although not been there over 11 years now so lol.

    Wish they did a higher quality, although v nice and was kinda surprised that people were actually dropping notes haha..

    no idea but i was extremely impressed he's very good. It's sad there's some really talented street performers but they get peanuts of views compared to a cat stuck to a fan :(

    Well i for one don't mind it and to me at least they are trying and not just plain ol begging. It was getting really bad when i left the Midlands\UK were people begging and actually earning more money then actually going to work. Would be nice to hear it's not like that and people support those who are actually trying to entertain but i guess people will always give more to a beggar than a entertainer.


    Not seen one for a while were i am now i think they get kicked off the places i travel which is a shame in most cases as like you said some really know how to.

    Don't get in a rush to get old it happens fast enough as it is.

    Well its just hit 3am - Ive spent the last hour or so network testing my powerline with and without power extensions & surge protection as Ive noticed that after building my network I was strangely getting some really sudden severe bouts of random lag which made playing any kind of game totally unbearable.

    Ive managed to fix the issue though and even though I do get the odd lag spike, its not as bad and as often was it previously was, Im now waiting for some new cat5e cables to come in.

    Anyone here either using or planning to use powerline - you definitely need to plug it directly into the mains, Dont run any power extension cables or sure protectors for it, just plug it into mains the run a longer network cable to your router/switch or whatever device youre trying to hook up.
