    Well, something like xfire but you need all other forum ids too.

    I think an app would be better for that, rather than a site. Kind of like Xfire; a client on your desktop that you can use to add and remove forum names etc. would be good for people that have different usernames for different forums.

    I like your idea. You should pitch it to Kreij.
    Actually, isn't Kreij making that exact thing? I'm sure he was working on a TPU game client thing. IIRC he posted a beta of it a while back I think, not sure.

    What I have in mind is less of a personal use but more of a "hey Scam is my friend in TPU but I wonder who he is in other places" kind of thing.

    I think it's a brilliant idea. Muchly liked.
    I wish this film would hurry up and finish. I'm gagging for a little rinse out :laugh: The mrs is doing dinner tonight so I can sit back and relax. It'll be the first time I've gamed during the day for like aaaages!!

    not at all, the wildfire has no water resistant measures...

    make sure you dry it out properly before attempting to power up again

    yeah, it's drying out at the moment, i'm hoping i'll survive, but if it doesn't, i think the warranty that's on it actually covers accidental damage

    Sticking it in a bag of (uncooked) rice is undisputably the best trick ever.

    but the problem is the water's in unusual places, like between the layers in the screen

    i'm just keeping the phone very warm until the screen is dry, then i'm going to put the battery in and see what happens

    Keeping your phone very warm will just keep the water warm. Rice actually sucks the moisture from the air so it's better than keeping your phone warm.
    If you leave your phone in a bag of rice, it will take about 24 hours to dry. Most other methods take twice as long. It's a fact, and there's a good reason thousands of people swear by the rice trick.

    I've had to do it 4 times, it only took 24 hours each time, even in winter. These were all Sony Ericcson W810i's (I've had to fix a shed load of them). No doubt depends on the type of phone.

    :laugh: slow-cooked rice anyone? :p

    I'm guessing you're not serious.

    The last time I had to do that it took 4 days :/

    Sous vide rice should be good, if those top chefs know their thing

    Keep it in a dry place mate, you don't want moisture in the air.
