    Exams do that to you, I've gotta bugger off to the dentist at some point to get registered since my dad realised I've not been in like 2 years... (I just blank trips to the dentist out).

    If you dont go in more than two years your no longer eligible for subsidised treatment. :(

    I hate the dentist, go it in about 3 weeks time

    26 miles and 385 yards, those 385 yards are VERY important when your lungs are hangin outta your arse.

    I only have to go to the dentist once a year now. Got the next visit in September. I don't mind it, it's just an extra thing to do when I could be doing something more productive or fun!

    i cant watch people running it bores me to tears i mean come on its just running okay? maybe taking part is fun and challenging in fact it really is but watching no way, olympic 100m its cool because its fast and over in 10seconds but i cant watch a marathon for 2 - 4 hours

    whats everyone up to me ive just been out and about visiting people and drinking liters of water cant say that ive done anything exciting tho

    good times i am about to visit the post office depot to get my motherboard replacement

    Hey tatty :), I noticed you linked videocardshop.co.uk in another thread, i may pick up a cheap 8800gt or something, I know there refurbs and OEM's but the price is what im liking. They seem kosher but you've had cards from there before ? Was it a smooth process and everything ok ?

    "Cya at the finish line folks" :p I'm not big on jogging lol. I'll jog a few miles, but thats about all I can take of it. If there was a london marathon cycle race or something, then I would consider doing that.

    Yes I have used them and bought both a 260 and 280 from them, no problems whatsoever, I even cocked up a flash on the 280 and RMA'd it and they accepted it pretty quick. The items under the "new" tab come with XFX's FULL warranty which dependant on item normally is 2 or 3 years but all the cards listed under "graded" still come with 1 years warranty.

    Speaking of which, anyone looking for a very cheap £67.99 HD4850 should look no further, but only one left..............

    Ok take a few reviews with a pinch of salt you know how people are but that many somethings got to be up, I wouldnt use them personally.

    I have used them once but never had to RMA, I dont think they are much good though, when I bought a hard drive they had it listed and said it was in stock only to find out that they didnt have it in stock and I had to wait 10 days but they still tried to charge me for their express delivery!

    Just saying sometimes its the end users fault for cocking up an order or something but they'll still blame the shop, But that many bad reviews shows it isnt a decent place to spend your hard earned cash.
