    Well just downloaded the client and stuck the tpu's number in and away it goes, except its not showing any ETA time it say's its running and my cpu usage agrees. I read it says unkown until it reach 1% done or over?

    edit:
    I guess it does now showing eta after percentage completed was over 1%

    was it an item you bought?? Even as a ex-employee of royal mail i dont trust them to deliver my stuff - If I ever need to send anything valuable or important - Fedex, CityLink. TNT, UPS, DPD.

    DHL are good providing they send someone from DHL around and not an idiot from 'Home Delivery Network' (HDNL) otherwise Ive had enough bad experience with them to not even bother with them anymore.

    HDNL/DHL and Parcelforce are in the same league and they are best avoided.


    Im having a bbq!

    fruits of the days BBQ... Unfortunately not alot to show as it was only a private family BBQ (that I funded entirely)

    I funded this out of my own pocket because I promised to take my dad out for a meal but then got hijacked by other family members we bumped into while on route and they ended up paying...

    So I thought id do a BBQ instead and impress my dad a little as our family has never had a 1 off small BBQ with just the family and no guests and my dad was always talking about it.

    It was more of a publicity stunt for me to show my dad that ive got money since i started working again but the moment I told him that i wanted to grill stuff instead of doing it the traditional way we've BBQ'd in the last 30years which involves shoving a metal stick through a peice of chicken and dangling it over some hot coals, He totally withdrew any kind of support for it because he was worried that the stuff wouldnt be cooked properly - Not that he voiced any kind of support in the first place apart from saying "I might drop by for a pint"

    So here i am with close to £70's worth of chicken, minted lamb steaks, rump and sirlion beef steaks ready to feed the entire population of japan and what does that motherfucker do?? He goes to fucking sleep and I cant explain how much that hurt my feelings not to mention how disrespected I feel....

    I told him days in advance what i would be doing. But the moment I mentioned 'grill' he turned into a complete cunt.

    Fortunately I wasnt alone. My dad might of not participated but at least I got to enjoy it with my mum who loved the minted lamb steaks that i was originally saving for my dad.

    So heres the chicken:
    [​IMG]

    More chicken:
    [​IMG]

    and some lamb steak:
    [​IMG]


    Unfortunately we never got around to grilling the beef which was what i was most looking forward to. I also ended up giving away some of the chicken to the neighbours as we had so much afterwards.

    And if your curious why theres so much chicken - We're Chinese, We dont do beef burgers and sausages and stuff like that when it comes to BBQ unless theres a lot of white people attending, even then our mainstay is chicken.

    Now Ive got almost two litres of JD & Coke all to myself to end the night.

    Cheers!!


    (P.S)

    All pics were taken on my SGS3 which are surprisingly good. I guess the conditions must of been perfect as it usually takes quite grainy pictures.

    I would quote but that's a lot of writing.

    first off, NOM NOM!!! that looks delicious, fairplay man!

    i think the whole sausages and beefburgers is boring, had that my whole life. and what you cooked there is absolutely perfect!! steak, chicken and minted lamb plus the JD and coke..... equals good times!

    im going sleep before I eat the screen!!

    It makes a good coaster, albeit an expensive one....

    ~ I dont mind people asking me if im willing to accept 'X' amount, but getting offered £40 when it costs £80 brand new is taking the piss, at least be reasonable with your offers
