I thought it was DanTheBanjoman
Ah, didn't realize that. NdMk2010 would be a good choice since he lives close by.
Oh duh! Mispell.
i'm gonna fix all of this with a poll
even if only about 3 people are gonna vote
Nah, I removed my name from the list, it wouldn't make sense for me to do it with someone else living nearby.
Voted for "NdMk2o1o - Geographically convenient" since that makes more sense. Also voted for the note because I could
Glad it's all sorted then.
Are we settled on the recipient?
Na, it's all good, as I said it probably wouldn't have happened without him
I believe so, the recipient was the hardest part for us to find (along with the Win7 key). Cheesy says all parts are found, so were on the final hurdle now everyone!
too late, and yes, we have everything but peripherals; mouse keyboard, speakers, webcam etc
When 'that guy i can't spell the username of but is supposed to be building the rig' actually gets delivery of the parts, i'll start a new post and add pictures, if he sends me any, and i'll embed the youtube video of the delivery if israar gives me the youtube link -i'd do a placeholder now but i think i may upset his modship - yes i'm aware kiex posted as i was writing (and no kiex isn't 'his modship')
Once everything is in place think it deserves a thread with shots of the build, the people it's going to and such. Not necessary but think helps give it a more human element to it.
cancel that, i've just realised that on this forum its actually 'Her Modship'
And i'll make the intro now (or tonight or tommorow) which we can build upon
If anyone has any changes PM me or post here before i make the thread, (it won't be too soon) as i am not actually too good when it comes to words and may of indeed left many mistakes etc
I have to confess that I still don't know who to vote for. <angst>
As it is, NdMk2o1o seems to be running away with it though.
So NdMk2o1o is fairly close geographically, but how far is Israar from this deserving family?
I think we should all do it, get a 10-seater, pick everyone up and Israar and NdMk can rig the baby up while we get the bbq cooking with a party later
If it was feasible, it would be epic.
I agree for the part on building really, as it seems he's the most viable to doing it (cost-effective anyway)
Nothing wrong with votes, and it always gets an end result, well, most of the time!
Yes, the recipient is definitely settled
Don't fret in angst mate, it's ok
Yes, he is, truth be told it's looking more viable for him to do it though, considering two facts, he lives close to them and that he knows them personally!
I'm from Manchester myself, so I'm over a 100 miles away, though the plus side to it is that my partner and baby boy live in Dudley which is not very far from where NdMk2o1o lives, how far from him and the family are, I'm unsure although even with that there, I gave my vote to him
A good old for NdMk2o1o
Thank you everyone who's helped making this come to fruition, all we need is shipping and building, then a set date to surprise the lovely recipients! Once that's set, we could really do with getting some video footage of the happiness -- Once that's done, I'll gladly upload to YouTube and supply links, unless someone else does it, depends on who actually get's the chance/voted to do it
Hahahahaha, now that would be epic man, in time, I think that would be perfect, if we had the resources to do it I would definitely be game for that!
Man that made me laugh! [/EDIT]
Thanks Israar - I've voted for myself!
Haha, that's awesome man, oh shoot, I didn't realise there was an invisible option
Arrggghhh! Get the qubit everyone! GET HIM!
I've been away recently, whats this about a trip?
too sum it up put everyone in a minibus and we all go to donate it.
not gonna happen though as we all live in diffrent parts of the uk , it would be a 12 hour drive in a minibus
5 of us in tatty's jag xf might be feasable but we'd never decide who, and i don't think he'd trust anyone from tpu to drive it
Ok, so what little bits and pieces do we still need to complete this project?
Just periph's I believe. KB&M and any bling
We don't Need anything the, only things we could do with are peripherals but they would just be extra as unless anyone's going to give away something high end i'm sure they've already got a basic keyboard/mouse and have headphones+webcams etc if they need them
as scam say's the only things we havn't got are bling, so if anyone's got any mid-high end pheripheral's or Neon lights, or flamethrowers - then they would be appreciated but at the end of the day their just Extra
Woooooooooo 1stly thank god I have no work for 11 days now I have been away on business since yesterday hence the lack of replies guys so thanks for bearing with me, started off from redditch>coventry>london>newmarket all in one day yesterday, then back from newmarket today, done a fair few miles in my old reliable fiat
You sir get a cookie
(but don't underestimate Wizbit mate, he's magic )
I am open to the video/pics cause I really do want you guys to see that a small gesture can go a long way even though we aren't doing it for the self gratification
I think I am going to get the coolermaster elite 430 case, tbh it is more than I wanted to spend though I want to express my gratitude for you guys backing me and and as these are my friends it really makes it special to me also, so thank you all.
i have that case, its spectacular with everything but cable management- there aren't many places for them to go, if you are going to buy it - try scan as its on their super-specials about 3 day's a week
Well it is now ordered, though tbh with some zip ties you can still make a nice clean build without a lot of cable routing holes, it's just nicer if you can hide them all though still as clean looking having them tidy even iff they are in view
my cables are so messy my cold cathodes a hovering off the ground without any of the sticky pads your sopposed to use
