    Softwater up here.

    Had a pint of Kelburn's St Andrews (might have been Tartan Army), £1.65 a pint. A local wetherspoons Sir John Maxwells, foods a bit meh but its not as bad as the ones up town. The bars amazing, had all these real ales/lagers/beers and whiskies on sale. I think they are doing some sort of beer and whisky fest up till christmas.

    £1.65 a pint!!!

    Emily Haines in it

    she looks as though trying to get her to smile would be like getting blood out of a stone - My impression anyway.

    Might get myself one of these arcade sticks for 360 and pc.

    Not as good as the tournament edition with the sanwa parts but thats much more expensive, for £25 its usable and should be good for emulators on the pc, xbla games and the odd fighter. Not a massive fighter fan but its nice to know these are easy to modify and the decal picture thing can be removed.

    Yup same price too.
    Not sure if the PS3 version is compatible with PC, might be though since its also USB.

    does it work in addition to the normal controller like a keyboard or does it work in it's own right like a Guitar hero controller or something

    Someone tried to play Halo with a Rock Band controller which sounds interesting but was a clusterfuck rofl.

    You dont use the controller in addition to the arcade stick; you use the arcade stick solely as it essentially becomes the controller. For example on xbox 360 you sign into the arcade stick.

    The sticks bleh! Nothing special but for occasional use its fine and it works better than the other cheap sticks like the Tekken stick. Its slightly better than the standard edition Street Fighter IV stick both are Mad Catz.

    Considering the price of a hard drive these days that's not bad.

    My new desk chair tricked me into thinking it was going to be amazing and comfortable. There isn't enough padding on the seat so it feels like im sitting on the board and the back isn't high enough. The back is about 5cm short from my shoulders and it curves away at the top so there isn't adequate support. I took this one over a boss looking seat that only had the option to go up or down, this one tilts the seat and also can tilts the back separately but it doesn't make a comfort difference. I haz sad face :(

    There's chairs discounted at Staples, the Glasgow Staples is open right next to a PC World LOL.
