    Advice if anyone does go paintballing bring your own packets of drink because they rip you off on site for drinks.
    Key to paint balling is just having good team and just keep advancing forward and forward so their trapped in their zone.

    nah barriers are better, stay low, and keep pushing forward. Best to have like 3 team mates with you so you can cover each other
    did your goggles fog up ir does that only happen in winter?

    Mine fogs up with breathing hard and sweating and when you get hit in the face by paintball. It covers the visor and generates a bit of steam lol.
    Headshots didn't count as a kill when i play.

    Want to stop your goggles fogging up forever? Use the same trick I use so I can shave in the bath without the mirror getting steamed up.

    Wipe shower gel around the inside of the visor of your goggles, then wipe dry with a tea towel or something and wait for the streaks to disappear and then BAM! no more steamed goggles! The shower gel creates a layer over the glass/plastic that stops condensation from being able to form no matter what the temperature.

    The original trick is to use soap, but it will most probably sting your eyes being so close to them. When I do it on the mirror, it lasts about 5 baths before I have to re-do the gel.

    Excuse me for butting in without reading recent posts (I will do that now!).

    I have managed to bag me a 2600k for £173 from the US. I think the guy is not scamming if he was paypal will help me! It's meant to be new just checked out.

    I have to think about upgrading my current cooling system or changing it completely. I overclocked a 2600k with a frio to 5.15ghz+ at the recent overclocking event. I have a MUX-120 currently but would buy a new HSF if necessary. If you can suggest good 120mm fans or a good HSF please visit my thread and let me know :) thanks

    edit: what avatar theme do we have now? Also, BFBC2 friend requests sent !

    Being it was my 2nd time going to the place,it was really good. Much better weather but worst is i kept going into sting nettles and crap lol and a lot more bruises overall than last time just because the balls bounced off the suit.
    And i had a good team dominating most games.

    Or you could get picked on everyday for the next two/four weeks because youre not gonna be there long. Wouldnt surprise if they did. Newfags always get the abuse.

    And abuse is every much part of the whole experience. Newfags always get treated the worst. and whats even worse then a newfag is a newfag on a 2/4 week trail.

    They are gonna ride your booty hard

    Ive never been in the job where they didnt ride the newfags hard. thats when you gotta make friends in higher places. they remember your face the next time and wont lump you in the same pile as the newfags.

    I know a guy who was studying Media & broadcasting at Uni. He won an internship at the BBC. but all they made him do was make tea for the presenters & other crew for a whole year.

    So yeah. shit happens. Just because the company you are working for is oh so prestigious doesnt mean they wont treat you half like scum when you step through the door.

    What's wrong with making tea for a whole year, sounds like a good way to avoid doing other work

    nothing at all. Except he wasnt there for work or work experience. he was there as part of his Uni course and he didnt learn a single thing other then 10 sugars or 12.
