    The Bacardi building is there too i don't know if that's the same thing, anyway they just don't have operations there i didn't know they still have museums and stuff. Its mainly because of nationalisation i just looked it up, the old family hated Fidel Castro. Plus probably not now but they used to be able to import to the US via Puerto Rico without import taxes.

    EDIT: Cheesy trust me its rare to have someone from the Philipines in Scotland, its mostly Chinese origin from that part of the world. For some reason lots of Africans and Middle Eastern people especially in Glasgow. One man i wont name took offence to being called a Paki because he was originally from Iraq of all places. Lmao i went to a Catholic school that was full of Muslims.

    yea you can see the family building with the spire and the bacardi fugurehead up top for miles around.bloody grim place though.
    Its like everything there is a facade/window dressing.
    The houses that are either side of main parades are kind of done in a colonial grandeur and kept painted neat and tidy,turn down any side street and its all run down and decrepid.
    reminiscent of a few places in the carribean in many ways.

    seems like a waste of money, there are far more cost effective things out there that let you play games on the go - wuith this you need a plug with you so you might as well get a desktop or an xbox or something

    I looked and she dont have a express card slot on the netbook so this is a no go,i love the concept though.
    One of the new Llano lappys would be more sensible,and probably cheaper.

    The game she plays on the net uses one third of a gb and 50% cpu time,
    and upgrade options for the cpu are massive - i can upgrade it from 1.66 to a flaming fast 1.83!

    I think there was like a fraction of a second in it i think, i put in a bid with a few seconds to go after my other one was outbid.
    Ebay snipers are fucking terrible. Wasn't anything important i wanted but its still kinda shite when that happens.

    Did anyone see the ads for MW3 and BF3 during the half time breaks on the footy today? BF3 looks great. Nice sequence of a dogfight.

    Dunno if they have been seen before today :)

    Isn't there an app for that (yea, I did it lol)? I'm sure there's some app you can download that watches all your ebay stuff and snipes for you?

    there is an app
    http://www.auctionsniper.com/
    It was supposed to be banned by ebay,but logically why would they ban people from bidding unless it causes enough of an uproar and turns ebayers away.
    i would sooner do it the honest way
    (probably save myself a bundle by walking away when the prices get ridiculous anyway!)
    The other side of the coin is that its quite amusing to watch the price of osmething your selling skyrocket in the last couple of minutes.

    I don't like getting mass bids at the end of something im selling because i get scared it will go for a really low price. Most of the time i just put a reserve on though.

    EDIT: I dont like sniping, i dont usually do it but i had to since that auction had loads of small bids right up till the dying seconds.

    I remeber reading up on the best tactics for getting the lowest price,and its no surprise that sniping reaps the rewards.
    The mrs has got some function on her fone where it lets you know when something your
    watching is about to finish,its just a shame my fingers are too big to operate her fone :)

    I just put opening bids on whatever it is that i am looking for,then search out multiples of that item,looking for badly spelled stuff has worked for me in the past too!

    I know what you mean about stuff selling undervalue,the very first thing i sold on ebay should have gone for £120 but it went for £15...And the guy tried to take me to the cleaners,swapped in his old damaged item and claimed it was mine!
    UV pens work a treat though :)
    I was fuming anyway but no/low feedback sellers always stand that chance if they haven't eastablished themselves.
    I do prefer to start stuff low so everyone gets a chance to bite onto the dream,tbh i got so much crap i gathered over the years,the initial price/value is irrelevant...i just want the space back!
