    Just stick some glow strips to locate your keyboard, and let your fingers do the rest :D

    I rarely if ever turn on the lights on my G11 (granted, the lights are next to useless unless the room is totally dark)

    My input for today:

    We should follow US suit and hold a vote for the decriminalization of cannabis...

    Its not like the police cares much about cannabis anyway, I have seen people smoking big fat fags puffing it into the police and get away with it.

    You just need to be on the same wavelength...

    Exactly, for once we need to follow suit with the inferior nation.

    True. But i'm more for buying ease. Rather than a dealer, have a shop. Cuts out the bad prices, weights and violence.

    Accidently? You know you can cancel the order/return the item/s under the distance selling regulations act don't you, or was that just your way of saying you wanted two of them. :p

    I can hardly believe the 'accidentally' part - If it was truely accidental then you could have cancelled the order within 5 seconds before they actually had time to process it.


    Lets face it, you really really wanted those cards otherwise you wouldnt have gone through checkout with them!

    Oh hell yeah. I wanted them bad. Just a case of clawing the money back with three of the six game vouchers they come with and selling the old cards!

    yeah i started using them just a few weeks ago, got Guildwars 2 (MISTAKE) dirt cheap, anno 2070 and battlefield 3 after all that peer pressure on teamspeak :D they seem legit enough, and whenever i have a problem they literally reply in minutes!

    Guild wars 2 is alright..... Core gameplay wise, the first game is better. Theyve taken a lot out of the game and in many cases havent replaced it with better or equal content. I couldnt stop myself playing GW1 but with GW2 i dont care at all if i log on or not. even when i do log on its only for about 10-30mins before i decide that im totally batshit bored and go play something else

    I had the same problem. I loved GW1, had all character slots filled with lvl 20's and maxed out armor and greenie weapons (aside from a warrior who still has my perfect pink chaos axe xD), and it died out and there's rarely anyone online. But it had missions and endgame content to work to, and you didnt spend a month getting to max level. GW2 i bought it, played it for 2 hours straight, logged out, next day played it for 30mins and died of boredom and decided i couldnt be bothered, especially with the general lack of the missions you did in the original with anyone who was around in the enclosed area or with a tonne of henchmen you could customise.

    well, the Idea was that they wanted players to work together.... But the time gap between GW1 and GW2's release meant people have gotten used to playing by themselves and nobody cares to team up with each other.

    getting to Level 80 with thief was a little adventure, but once i started doing the storyline, the game just became such a drag. and adventuring around the map just got boring as Im more of a PvP player.

    I love PvP but I hate WvWvW as there is no skill involved - its just non-stop zerging. I want them to bring back similar Arena's Like TA, RA, GvG and more so AB.

    Until they release their first expansion pack, I will more or less stay away from the game.

    Id rather it was just GW1 but with the item, weapon and skill system, a lvl cap of 30 and with the same size world as GW2, but with defined mission areas. GW1 became solo because there wasnt that many players to do multiplayer content with in the first place. GW2 has plenty of players, in most areas there are players around to do teamquests with, but that wont last long. PVP was way better in the first one.
