    Might I say, you're doing a fine job. More patience than I have at times.

    Would anyone be interested in buying a like new drum hi-hat? I'd be looking for £100 (maybe £80) pick up, but was about ~£150 new. I could attempt shipping it, but I'd have to determine additional costs. If anyone's interested, I can do it officially in the B/S/T/G forum. Also have a well used drum kit, if interested also. If not, eBay.

    It's been upgraded to a fancy new electric one, so I don't need the old drum kit anymore. :p Maybe you're could add drumming to your repertoire of musical talent?

    I can actually play drums too but nothing amazing as you probably. As much as ive always wanted a drum kit as i LOVE playing them and would like to have my own kit - the amount of hate i would get from my parents and neighbours would get me Jihaded.


    Electric kits can be good though i still dislike the artificial/digital sound. Yamaha makes the best electric kits afaik and they do sound pretty amazing but they can be expensive so ive had or seen that many people invest in one unless they were real serious about drumming.

    Found an i7 4770K for £200

    Debating as to whether I actually need it or not, because it is a crazy awesome deal.

    Also ordered a new headset, because despite the ASTOUNDING audio quality of my Sennheiser PC323's (seriously best sound I've ever had in a headset), they SERIOUSLY HURT!

    OCUK have a bunch of half price or less deals on headsets as they're clearing stock, so I took advantage of one of the rather pricey headsets being £45.

    honestly not had time, ive been working these last 4 days and this is my first day off and im back working tomorrow for another 3days. I was gonna send it out wednesday with some other stuff as that was also supposed to be my day off but my shifts got changed so i had to get all my arrangements with couriers done last night when i got home at midnight. Thank god UPS allows you to book for same day pick up at 3 or 5 in the morning as i only got into bed about 6am.

    I'll have the ram sent out tomorrow.

    No worries, you can either send it to me, or keep hold of it and send it to the cruncher we eventually find for the whole rig, as I'll only be sending it there anyway.

    Stay strong caramel bear, you don't sound(type) so happy today.

    I dont get enough days off in the week to feel unhappy. Though to be honest my job is starting to grind on me more and more.

    ::Edit::

    I also got my first IRQ_Less_Or_Not_Equal BSOD last night since i swapped out my faulty PSU - Im starting to wonder if the old PSU may have damaged something.

    So I accidentally told my computer to hibernate instead of sleep. Not a good move regarding the slow speed of resuming Windows, let alone from a HDD. Tried to turn the PC on, and it got stuck on the ASUS screen before Windows launched. The Boot Device LED on my motherboard was red, which is usually a bad thing. And worst of all, I couldn't access the BIOS to fix anything. So I do the old turn it off and on again trick, turning the physical power switch off on my PSU for a couple of minutes. This usually works. :laugh:

    And it did, but when I got into the BIOS something was rather odd. Apparently it was running the UEFI BIOS off of my USB thumb drive, despite me setting it as the lowest boot priority when I first built the PC many moons ago. Rather odd. Could anyone shed some light on this please?

    Apple devices have a tendency to make themselves a default boot device. Even with USB boot set to the lowest boot priority at work, some member of staff managed to upset the boot from network to the dank iPhone they had plugged in

    It's not an Apple device though - I have never plugged anything Apple into here ever. Its just my SanDisk USB memory drive :confused:

    Sounds like you haven't been out on a Saturday night and seen me strutting my stuff. They call me the Cindy Crawford of Newark.
    In all seriousness, a member on TPU (I won't say his name as he may be embarassed), private messaged me and asked if after all these years I was a woman all along. Apparently a lot of my posts made me sound like I was a woman? He was super serious too. Had to let him down gently.
    Probably why me and remixedcat get on so well.

    We have a new edition to the B-Team, Layton Jnr who's been a pretty cool guy these past few weeks. He hasn't yet succumb to the numerous trolls around the place either.

    Hi there. :toast:

    Inevitably there will probably be a breaking point when it comes to dealing with trolls, so one day I may have to unleash some RCoon-esque rage. :p

    You always need to treat a troll with the derision yet dismissive tone they deserve. And hi back at you young chappy.
    :toast:. I'm only 40 but everyone's a young chappy to me. Unless they're a young chapess. But not Saville young. I should stop.

    Welcome back Tats, you've been sorely missed! Kriej memorial thread has been going crazy good in the last few weeks!
    I did notice a few good deals, but can't get down to the OCUK store for the instore only deals they're having on.
    Tatty_One says thanks.
