    I had a powercut on Saturday morning, about 2:15am. I was brushing my teeth, and bang. Took me ages to get to my bed, pitch black. Power reset at 2pm :(

    I had a powercut 2 weeks ago - something big happend just down the road - had the firebrigade & ambulances all over the place & Im guessing they had to take the whole grid out just to be safe because I was on my pc when the screen went black & my pc fell silent. I totally shit my pants. I thought my 3.9Ghz overclock had killed my pc but i saw the funny side of it & picked up the closest item that looked like a walkie talkie & started screaming "BRIDGE TO ENGINE ROOM - GIVE HER ALL YOU'VE GOT!!!!!" I did that for about for 2mins but stopped when my mum & sister started giving me dirty looks...

    Woke up, had a shower, when I got out of the shower my gran presented me with 4 slices of cheese on toast, almost hurled at the sight of it due to nerves about the bloody things.
    I've been trying to get away from results talk and it's all over the bloody news and facebook!

    Lol... I wasn't nervous at all. Purely because i knew i was going to college and all the exams count for is getting you in. Considering all you need is 5 x C-A* ... who can't do that?

    I finished my History exam with 45mins to go, haha. Still got a B aswell. Would of got higher, but i slacked in my Coursework.

    Tbh, after year 9 i gave up on school. I just realized how pointless secondary school is. Year 7 and 8 i was predicted As and A*s.

    I had to get a set of grades that was "not a pisstake for me" (that's a direct quote from my head of year), considering that I almost always get As and Bs in stuff I had to do pretty bloody well to stay at my current school.
    5As, 3 Bs, 1 C and 1 A* is definitely good enough for me!

    I went to see Inglorious Basterds last night, awesome movie. Went last wednesday, but it sold out!!! This is at a Cineworld! They'll stop doing orange wednesdays soon, it has to be costing them soooo much.

    You think thats good i might be getting a DSA because i have Aspergers Syndrome, a grant that you dont pay back.

    I hate microsoft word 2007 i could claim for it but i wont because its shit. I wonder however if i could claim for Windows 7?

    I need minor things like being able to type notes instead of writing them. A flashdrive so i can take work home if i need extra time to work on things. A mouse/keyboard rest a mouse mat ect. A printer. I think you can get stationary and folders and things too.

    I can also do tests like exams unit tests in a separate room. Extra exam time too.

    I write strange which is a to do with motory skills, so if someone like me has a decent pen and notebook (of the paper variety lol) it makes life so much easier.

    Do you know why companies like Microsoft like to give out free software to students and deals to colleges education places because they want people to learn on its software so they are used to it and are more inclined to buy it due to being able to use it easily. They are hoping that because you used Word that you will continue to use it in work and home.

    Well, their not fooling me because i DO want to use it. Their stuff is better. I love Office 07, it's ALOT better than the previous versions. Just like Windows 7 is better than XP and Vista.

    I think that because i know computers like i do, im getting this stuff for the right reason. It's not like their brainwashing me...

    I don't see Adobe giving me an earlier version of Photoshop, or Macromedia giving me Dreamweaver. Their just as useful to someone like me... However, Microsoft does it, so i respect them.

    Also, being a student, i can get Office Ultimate 07 for £45 (ish) and Vista Ultimate for £35!

    Alreet guys, wondering if you could help me with something, I'm after some fan grills like those found on the Sunbeam transformer
    [​IMG]

    How ever I would like them to be 120mm, I've not had any joy yet, they don't have to be the exact same but close enough:p

    I ask as I'm going to mod my own Sunbeam Transformer to use 120mm fans instead of 80mm fans.

    Thanks in advance!
