    Definitely, I'll have a look for that and favourite it mate. I'm still pretty gash at it being new but I'm starting to get a bit better, I actually managed two rounds with more kills than deaths last night instead of having my arse handed to me which is the norm.

    I've got a few friends from over on the PC Specialist site who jump into games now and again but it's always good to have a server with people who you 'know'. Cheers for the heads up.

    Same here. If it wasn't for the kids I'd get a lot more hours on there than I actually do.

    I do play a lot of games, I got hooked on Skyrim for about 15 months after completing Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare and Arkham City, then made the jump to PC gaming in April this year (only ever really used to play FM on the PC except for Wolfenstein and Modern Warfare) and have loaded Steam and Origin up with 50 games. Hopefully enough to see me through until the next Steam sale, or until Arkham Origins and BF4 come out.

    I sure as hell feel 40. When you're in a sys admin job it sure does kill the youth you had when you used to go round fixing computers for minimum wage, and actually ENJOYED it!

    Hey guys...isn't it toasty :)
    I have a bit off an unusual request here, before leaving to go travelling...my pal gave me an S4 LTE and I cant get it to connect other than signing into Wi-Fi, no phone network though it displays signal, I understand it could be a moody phone but I trust the guy, how do I find out for sure?

    Holiday blues?? Im actually enjoying some time off. after a dispute with manager at work. Hes ignored me for 3 days, not taken or returned any of my calls, I even called the boss who manages him who said he would call/email him to call me - still not a word. Simple fact - If im not happy with my working environment and you refuse to hear me out on the matter then I will straight up not come into work.

    I told his boss that, I told HQ that. I also told HR that I will be writing a letter of complaint about my manager - I should be off until sunday/monday so got plenty of time to enjoy this hot weather before returning to work if my manager ever does decide to call me up again.

    My line manager is awesome, hates all of senior management, has a dry and very sarcastic tone, and in essence knows how lazy managers are, is lazy, and allows me to be extremely relaxed in my working environment. Plus the head teacher is absolutely clueless and malleable so nobody is scared of him.
