    There's nothing more flattering than a trip round Wakey on Friday night. Like Paris...

    Whereas I'd like to see more bold and italic. Equal oppurtunities for font types and colours!

    EDIT: Stella, Absinthe (I've snorted Absinthe before, FYI :pimp: ) or Underberg for me thanks peeps :toast:

    I find it hard to emphasise with colours, bold and italics are the essential tools for me. Just some people really miss the point.

    On a bad note; my 2.6GB BC2 patch was freaking corrupt.

    >.<

    Have to download the whole sodding thing again!

    I'm so dissapointed the avatar thread got closed, honestly this is like being on a forum full of kids rather than a forum full of adults.

    And by that I mean we are treated as children, what shite.


    This is what made me leave before, sorely tempted to leave again now I know the forum is still a load of BS.

    I find it completely kills the atmosphere here for me : /

    Like ruins the whole "forum" thing we're supposed to have going on.


    I really look down on closing threads that arnt trolls/spam bots, to me it's like burning books.

    Ah well bugger it, I'll take the help I may need when setting up new rig and then piss off again, it's only a few people that keep me here as I enjoy talking to them, the rest is just dissapointing to an extreme.

    My name is not on the list... :confused:... :shadedshu... :banghead:... :mad:... ADD ME!!!

    LOL, first time finding this thread and I don't entirely understand what is going on, although I have pretty much found that I'm supposed to post the town I live in.

    I live Canning Town which isn't exactly what I would say is a good area at all, but I've lived there long enough to be used to the area and thanks to the snow no crap should be happening anytime soon with the minus temperatures and everything else that comes with it.

    That's why I keep coming back to TPU. There are some f'ing awesome people here (the majority being in this club) and a lot of people in that have authority that really, really shouldn't have.

    If it wasn't for the decent members and their decent threads or input, then I'd have given up years ago. Before I joined TPU I read these forums for years & I've seen people come and go. If I really hated it I'd leave but instead I take it on the chin so that I can get to the good stuff.

    Just finished playing some BC2, my clan mates decided 2 hours was enough and have since, promptly, nobbed off.

    On an interesting note...

    The Spire

    ... coming, well sometime soon I hope.

    No steam or gaming for me for another week maybe : [

    But I'll be back to gaming with a x6 cpu when i do :D

    Got all the bits I need for £350 aswell,£300 of which was from selling the bits of my rig that didn't actually die + some new bits : ]

    In terms of specs £350 got me.

    1055t x6
    dual pci-e slot board (x16x4) by Asrock 770 chipset ( risky! yeah!)
    Modular generic psu ( SUPER RISKY, EXCITING!)
    9600gt
    Kingston hyperx 2x2gb 1600mhz
    500gb 7200 16 HDD


    @ IC, I'm not very good at taking it on the chin when I have the option to not take it on the chin with no repercussions XD (spellings
    ????)

    But I see your point, shouldn't let the bells ruin the good people here.
