    yeah. thats another part of the game that bores me... I like making my own builds but Anets excuse was that it takes a lot of time and effort to balance skills. In GW1 half the fun was building your own builds instead of just copying builds off PvX which everyone else would be using.

    I guess this wouldnt be so bad. if the choice of skills they left us with were actually any good. Some skills are alright but the majority of them are just lame. otherwise - no skill involved and it just becomes mundane, routine and I start to play on autopilot.

    The game itself is still in its early stages though. but I really expected better for a game thats been in the works for how many years???

    No, we are not having a dirty sales talk here, its just helping each other find the best prices. I am sure you will understand, inflation has gotten worse lately. ;)

    Can't believe OCUK is actually owned by another company now... so no more M Proudfoot? Was kinda amusing reading through all the criminal charges he's clocked up.

    Here's some bad sh*t he decided to post on his own forums:

    This guy here managed to save a screenie of the thread before he deleted it, there's a little article snippet from Watchdog aswell.

    I've always hated OcUK - it's been nearly 10 year since I've bought something from them.

    :D

    So I was working today... could care less about the job itself as I had not received any training which pretty much ended up in me sitting/walking around 'do-nothing' 9hr shift... HOWEVER during my shift, my mind wandered and i started singing this song....

    I just finished one of those. Managed to sit there for 8 hours doing.... F*CK ALL. Rather annoyed at being told to stay at work, when there is no work to be done.

    Yea, not much over minimum either.
    I generally enjoy goofing off but looking busy is really tiring :p

    Well, I'm not sure tbh I'd like the new Need For Speed, or just some good driving game in general or RPG. I'm open to offer's to make it easy.

    Encountered one of the worst sites Ive been to at work.... there were 4 of us. 2 of the guys were alright - we're on the same level etc etc. the last guy had to be a total dick and make himself a self proclaimed team leader and give me a bollocking for the way I sat after 4hrs of non stop standing up and dealing with customers.

    I could hear them guys arguing all the way through the day over the radio. I was made to do endless patrols and that turd didnt make my shift go any quicker.

    I have tomorrow off, so im sitting here with a small stock pile of kopparberg chillin, tired as fuck

    Guys after much work i've put together a home server with Dual E5320 CPU's it currently doesn't have a GPU and i wanted to start some (folding/bionc/wcg but don't know which one to pick) and wanted anyone who had a spare GPU to perhaps donate one for this cause? I can only dedicate 1-2 core of CPU as this is mainly our file server/3Dsmax render/Music streamer.
    I would be keeping it on atleast 10 hours per day if not more. so i'd be grateful if anyone had anything.

    WCG is probably better suited since it normally uses idle time only. If you're in london can meet up or else just PM me your address and I'll send you something via post.

    Quite tempted to build something around Cooler Master 120 or Thermaltake Element Q. Anyone have any ideas?
