    Well it has been awhile hope you're all doing well. =)
    Just some life story from me to update you guys.
    Now studying computing in university at my home town;now 20 years old(feeling old),had car accident due to my own careless driving luckily noone was hurt or injured or died so im bloody lucky and grateful.
    Also i've lost weight through hard training,started at 15stones in April 2012 now weighing 12.7 stone on 30th October 2012 and weight still dropping,i can wear size medium clothes now and gone down in trouser size.
    Amazing result and well worth it.

    Well anyways thats my story hope you're all doing well again,its christmas again so its that time of year to go nostalgia and look back at old things like games,websites and music.

    Not by enough tho! 25 is the BEST age, you cannot even legally have a beer with your meal whilst on holiday in Florida!

    Got a question for my UK friends.

    Is it me or is the whole damn world seem to be doing EVERYTHING half ass anymore? EVERYTHING is just "good enough" and if you question it your labeled an ass. Is it the same over there?

    Only people that seem to be bringing their a-game anymore are the idiots.

    That's quite a broad thing to answer. Generally speaking anything that is remotely related to money IS far worse now than it has been. You get served sub-par products and shoddy services by less-than-intersted staff almost everywhere.

    But europeans can riot like pro's. That's definitely something people ain't lacking spirit in.

    21 is the legal drinking age in Florida. 18 for consensual sex and voting. 10 years for the Death penalty. :laugh:

    A shotgun is less dangerous in the hand of an American then a beer.

    FYI Most crimes are committed with stolen guns in the US so the age to buy a gun is kinda irrelevant.
     
    Tatty_One says thanks.

    Guy's have a problem...

    I sold my GTX460 just over a month ago, maybe a month and half by now anyway the point is the friend I sold it to has just today said the card won't run anything demanding due to overheating - I never had an issue with the card especially with the temperatures!

    He's kind of hinting at a refund?? but really, what should I do?

    take a look at it, maybe it needs a little clean tell him, if it is still works test it, show him that it's fine and he needs to clean his PC up :shadedshu otherwise swap out the cooler

    Refund on your own terms, if he has ruined it then he should foot the bill

    I know, although i was not talking about crime, just visualising the 18 year old with a shotgun in one hand and a beer in the other and the Police Officer being more concerned about the Bud lite than the Benelli lol.

    But that's the thing, I'm sure if there is actually anything wrong with it then it's not from the time I had it. I've already told him to bring it back and I'll stick it in the rig I pulled it from to see how it runs but he hasn't exactly said he's gonna do that either.

    I just feel bad for selling gear and it somehow breaking on the new user, infact I never sell my old gear because of this reason - I usually donate to the family. :)
