    Every time we try and get a quote, they try and charge us £135 for this, £15 for that, £35 for connection etc. ; even when the offers are on where you don't have to pay all the fees. Only thing I can think of is the previous tenants doing the dirty or something. But yea, everywhere's just quoted us silly prices :banghead:
    Our new neighbours upstairs just got theirs with Virgin and they only paid a £30 fee and £20 a month for 6 months and etc. etc.

    its like my dads car insurance - my dads probably one of the most safest drivers on the road and he has never been in an accident. i think he pays around £200 per month but when he went back to renew his insurance they were quoting him something like 500-600 per month and hes been with this company for so many years and driver the same car for 2-3years. I cant remember what the companies called though.

    Im wondering if i should upgrade the hard drive in my laptop. either pay over £40 for a 320GB or under £30 for 160Gb. trying to to spend a lot of money on it. I dont need that much space anyway since i dont really store that much on here anyway, but if you look at the prices - £28 for the 160 then £42 for the 320gb, it just makes the 320gb look bettervalue for money for £14 i could have 320

    Yup, that's the first place we went. I went on their site earlier and gave them my phone number, they're going to give me a bell tomorrow hopefully, it's been about 6 months since I had a good ring round so you never know.

    Yea we got a phone line but there's no dial tone. Good idea with asking them though, never thought of something like that.

    If the space is gonna be wasted, I'd go 160, then you can spend the change on your bigrig!!

    I think i didnt actualy get into bed around 3am or something.

    ----

    Bad news, recieved a letter from my bank this morning and they have put a restriction on my debit card because a person who used some website or ATM around the same time i did got his details stolen and im guessing they started using it to buy stuff. so as a safety precaution theyve resticted my card where i can only pay for good with the card in person using chip & pin - so i cant buy stuff online or top up my mobile via debit card. the only way i can get the restriction lifted is if i get a card with a new 16digit number instead of my old one.

    Ive just been on the phone to them and spoke to a really nice girl called Jessica :) (she sounds hawt) but yeah - we had a pretty long chat and not just about bank related stuff too ;)

    So in the end my debit card had to be voided/invalidated and im waiting for a new one.

    I cant believe my wings have been temporarily clipped until the new card comes through the post.

    A woman with a nice voice somehow makes you feel better about your misfortune doesn't it?! I was at the jobcentre earlier - you don't hear any voices like that there!!

    On another note - the PSU turned up earlier, cheers man, going to give it a good going over later.
    EDIT: Oh yea, the packaging - I though it was going to be a box for pair of high heels or a sex toy, but it was Strongbow packaging - you teasing bar steward! I'm now officially having an alcohol day.
    My mates were supporting Pro Green at a gig in Folkestone last night and had a good performance, so time for celebration.

    Don't suppose you've got a receipt for this PSU have you?

    Give me nice and easy (and cheapish) recipes! I am getting tired of 1001 varieties of sammich and pasta (and rice), I need something different. Preferably all ingredients can be bought off a big Tesco/Sains/Asda/etc.

    Iceland do some nice Cod Fillets:
    [​IMG]

    Best done in the grill. Also, do some chips, and get a bottle of Reggae Reggae sauce, and a tin of beans. Mix Reggae sauce with beans according to taste (only use a little bit). Only use half a tin of beans and 2 of the fish and that's 2 dinners.

    Gorgeous! I usually mix Reggae sauce with a bowl of beans if I'm ill - if you use enough Reggae, it kills any ilness dead!!!!

    Hmmm, fish and chips is certainly a viable option, but it cannot be consumed regularly.

    Anyone here got an Aria account that can PM? I need someone to relay a message for me as the fella i got that PS3 off "Watercooled" isn't repling to my PMs.

    Basically, it broke on the 4 turn on (Only time i actually put a game in, other times were to do updates etc.), i asked him about warranty and told him that it broke on Wednesday and he hasn't been online since 1 minute after i sent the PM.

    Now, he said he was respected on Aria, so i need someone to PM the "watercooled" on there and find out if it is actually him and if it is, PM me on here, or email me.

    :/ how much did you pay for it? tbh when he put his 5850 up for sale here, alarmbells went off in my head. - Im not saying hes dodgy, but if hes not logged on here since you inboxed him and told him his PS3 and yet hes still live and kicking on Aria making a gazillion posts a day then even though I dont want to say it but i think you might have been shafted mate :(

    Yea, i know.

    He offered a months warranty, been like 1 week (i didn't have any games / controllers, so i didn't use it).

    Im curious whether the "watercooled" on Aria is him or not.

    Id create an account and have a talk with one of the mods/admins there. but thats pretty smart - claims hes reputable but then goes onto other sites and does the dirty so no-one can chase it up on Aria.

    If you payed for it with paypal - i think you can file a despute with them and they might refund you. if you payed for it via bank transfer. im not too sure if the 'chargeback' scheme applies to B.Ts
