    Tried getting power and gas connected to my flat, took British Gas almost 2 hours over phone to sort it out. Retards.

    LOL Phone companies are AWFUL, I work in CEX so get people selling in phones to me, blackberrys have a pin so if someones registered it we need the customer to call their service provider and make it so a new user can register the device with their own email address etc.

    The amount of times we get people coming back from the phone shop stores with their phones simply reset, or being told that such a thing isn't possible, or we've made it up.

    Or they don't even know what a blackberry service account is ( It's something that they are all very good at selling though :laugh:)

    Does my head in!







    Now to reply to second quote :p

    That's why I hate it man, at-least via email you can take a break :laugh:

    I have telephone anxiety which makes telephoning companies a problem.

    Also with email you can send pictures or have long explanations without waiting on the phone for them to work things out. Mostly first time you state the problem then they read it go work out some shit and reply with an answer.

    British gas are crap though, they got fined a few days ago for their stupidity

    at the end of the day, i can never describe something very well in writing, plus i can only type at around 50-60 words a minute (source = http://play.typeracer.com/), so talking to people it much faster for me

    Nah, essays are great, i get A/A* in most of 'em

    Do you think i should make a thread or something about that?, maybe i could screenshot in step for step and make it more in depth?, and good luck modding it, show me what you end up with once you've finished

    EDIT:I was playing learn to fly 2 and look what came up --> [​IMG]

    nice, looks a bit cluttered for my tastes

    Ignore what i said about the thread, i'm thinking of starting some sort of club, where people can share tips on these sorts of things, desktops, taskbars, basically anything that allows you to customize the look of windows

    It was decided a few posts later by Tatty to uphold the values of the original post.
    My desktop is clean i used to have a dock bar 2 years ago but now i just have a few icons and thats it, i tried to go all start menu once didnt like it after awhile. I dont run those shitty widgets they just drain resources for the amount of time im on desktop anyway its useless.

    Yeah i guess so lol,finally completed a chapter on Gundam Musou 3/Dynasty Warriors gundam 3.

    And i love it on ebay when people give feedback of most typical yet ineffective feedback "fast delivery" yeah alright a week is a fast delivery in the UK. Also hate it when people sell stuff they don't even have courtesy to message you back when you send them a message.

    Don't forget there's the guy who's English but works in Spain or something - he was accepted among us :laugh:


    I used to be terrible on the phone, but one day I just thought "think fast" and now I can say I'm damn good. Probably got a lot to do with the music making thing (freestyling requires fast thinking) but yea, I can leave an answer phone message without any "umms" and "aahs" now. Knowing what you've got to say beforehand helps too :laugh:

    Yea, but the bit I quoted, said "suggests they have to live in the UK". That's what I was pointing at.
