    lol the brits is a sham, if any decent acts are on i might watch it, i have a sister so she can just tell me if something cool comes on

    that had to be the worst chippy ive had in years fish my arse it had 0 taste it was like fish texture but no taste lol johns chippy is not as good as it used to be, lol here is a story at my old house i lived next to a chippy just a few houses down the street so my mate ordered a delivery to my house even the delivery guy was laughing at the door i mean my old place was maybe 6 houses and the health clinic car park away which is small


    gonna get a drink of irn bru just fitted that rubbish 8600gs to my old machine, kinda regret buying it thought it would be more powerful than a x800gto but i might be mistaken, that x800gto was a beast back in the day got it for £120 i think at release

    Irn bru is quite good but I hate the aftertaste. I remember getting my x850 for £150 it was a beast when I got it but its a shame it couldn't do SM3.

    x800GTO was the first PC part I ever bought, cost me £126.

    Was really upset when I got Bioshock from my brother for my birthday and I couldn't run it due to SM3.

    back in the days when i use to pull 60hrs+ a week average - I bought a (AGP) x850xt pe for £300+

    I loved that card to bits. so much that i refused to sell it so it sits in my back up rig which hasnt been booted up in like 2 years....

    My backup rigs not that powerful anyway but it will serve me well for a few weeks.

    x850xt pe

    AMD64 3000+@2.7Ghz

    2Gb - 2x1Gb Elixir PC3200 Overclocked to 250-260mhz. I bought these modules for like £20 each brand new lol

    MSI Neo2 Platinum Nforce3 Ultra (my second one since I fried the first one some how)

    80Gb sata 1

    yeah it took a while to do without the laughter and they usedto do it in front of an audience or they would add in the laughter track

    i liked it tho made it a bit more modern

    just hope they do another set of specials for red dwarf, im a big fan dont ask why i just love it

    irn bru is great but i dont drink it as much as i used too
    i think irn bru is a kids thing, glass bottle of irn bru and a kebab LOL

    "Everyone in the world loves irn bru, even though I used to be a man!"

    Best ad a soft drink company has ever come out with.

    Period.

    Mind you saying what I just said, A-levels are a walk in the park compared to a Uni degree. And dont even get me started on GCSE's.

    I suppose its just how you progress. I wouldnt have got the grades I got if it wasnt for the teachers, even my parents have said that. And point is proven by the way I'm doing worse in terms of grades on my degree, where most of the teachers are sh*t

    One of the sixth formers commented to me that they were GCSeasies lol, his way of persuading us to do an hour of rifle drill which ends 20 minutes before my english language exam. I wonder how the invigilator would react to me walking in wearing combat 95 uniform?
