    you could get a 10 year old to eat ice and keep farting in your house? that could perhaps be an alternative to an expensive AC unit... considering that if you asked foxconn nicely enough they'd probably send you one of their kids.

    I'll be away on a nice trip to Barcelona that day. Guess I'll have to wait till I retrun to see if any good stuff blunders happened.

    Try Parcel 2 Go, it will give you prices for a lot of couriers with all sorts of options/prices. Was the cheapest way I could ship my 26KG Silverstone FT02.

    according to this only pacelforce will ship his parcel and it'll cost £60

    id try it yourself mighty mission as i made it a meter in every direction(you never told us dimensions) - either way it looks like the cheapest method of delivery is by car

    I had to walk 2 and a half miles in that in a dinner suit yesterday... Quite impressed at how quickly the trousers dried off afterwards!
    Anyway, time for iPlayer and Doctor Who!

    Haha, sweet. I saw the second half of it yesterday while trying to teach myself to tie a bow tie... didn't quite go according to plan! This is just one of many ploys to avoid revision!

    sorry guys lack of sleep is my only excuse,thanks for suggestions tho
    the unit is (cm measurements) 55wx45dx90h@40kg
    but i will give the links a try...i spent hours looking up couriers last night and couldnt find any that would shift let alone insure an a/c unit.

    plus i still got to shift a fruit machine lol that things bloody heavy!

    Scam:
    I got two of them to sell and oddly enough both the highest offers on the larger unit are in cambridge.

    The smaller a/c is only about 15kg so the courier is only £8 but of course its not such a pretty purchase when it would struggle chilling a big room.

    It wouldnt bother me to do the roadtrip but i lost my license so she would have to do the 238 mile round trip,i better continue looking...

    All this just to have some spare funds for upgrades :)

    Not when you only have a netbook with you! (Stuck 25 miles from home at my gran's which means I'm 25 miles from my desktop!) The Dr Who episode was pretty good I thought, waiting for the next one now though!

    I'm moving down south in less than 100 days and will only have stuff in one house down there and won't be visiting grandmother's/ family members without a prepaid train ticket home! So thanks for the offer but it's not required, at least if I'm at my gran's I can't get distracted from revision by PC games!

    Started building a scaffold play ground in the woods at my friends fishery yesterday.

    Doing more today, so much damn fun.

    Surprisingly strong as well considering we've mostly just tied scaffold bars to trees!

    brilliant, so where abouts will you be joining civilization (just to clarify i hate the north - no problem with the people living in it)(why is it so cold?????????)

    also: 2 more posts to 500 - this is a bigger milestone then mussels 30000

    Fairly close to Orpington, I've still got to arrange accomodation though! (I'm looking at sharing with a couple of other people doing my placement but I need my employer to finish up with their pre-employment checks so I can get contact details for other people on the placement first). Good to know that you don't have any problem with northerners, that said... most of us call southerners a bunch of wimps due to your response to the weather! :laugh: I love how you're commenting on the north being cold when there's not a cloud in sight and the sun's been shining for at least the last 3 hours! Not really going to be sure what to do with my weekends when I'm there, too much choice, I'll probably start with finding a good pub! :toast:
    Edit: It's so cold because it's the north, there's no other good reason (other than geography but that has no humour in it...)

    you won't find them down south


    been loving the whether down here, haven't seen a cloud in days

    last 3 hours is nothing down south, its not really classified as sunny until you've had about 3 days straight of sun

    i also hate the lack of technology and phone reception up north
