lol the brits is a sham, if any decent acts are on i might watch it, i have a sister so she can just tell me if something cool comes on

that had to be the worst chippy ive had in years fish my arse it had 0 taste it was like fish texture but no taste lol johns chippy is not as good as it used to be, lol here is a story at my old house i lived next to a chippy just a few houses down the street so my mate ordered a delivery to my house even the delivery guy was laughing at the door i mean my old place was maybe 6 houses and the health clinic car park away which is small


gonna get a drink of irn bru just fitted that rubbish 8600gs to my old machine, kinda regret buying it thought it would be more powerful than a x800gto but i might be mistaken, that x800gto was a beast back in the day got it for £120 i think at release

Irn bru is quite good but I hate the aftertaste. I remember getting my x850 for £150 it was a beast when I got it but its a shame it couldn't do SM3.

x800GTO was the first PC part I ever bought, cost me £126.

Was really upset when I got Bioshock from my brother for my birthday and I couldn't run it due to SM3.

x800GTO was the first PC part I ever bought, cost me £126.
back in the days when i use to pull 60hrs+ a week average - I bought a (AGP) x850xt pe for £300+

I loved that card to bits. so much that i refused to sell it so it sits in my back up rig which hasnt been booted up in like 2 years....

My backup rigs not that powerful anyway but it will serve me well for a few weeks.

x850xt pe

AMD64 3000+@2.7Ghz

2Gb - 2x1Gb Elixir PC3200 Overclocked to 250-260mhz. I bought these modules for like £20 each brand new lol

MSI Neo2 Platinum Nforce3 Ultra (my second one since I fried the first one some how)

I'm tempted to find the past paper essay that has a go at that kinda statement...

Mind you saying what I just said, A-levels are a walk in the park compared to a Uni degree. And dont even get me started on GCSE's.

I suppose its just how you progress. I wouldnt have got the grades I got if it wasnt for the teachers, even my parents have said that. And point is proven by the way I'm doing worse in terms of grades on my degree, where most of the teachers are sh*t

One of the sixth formers commented to me that they were GCSeasies lol, his way of persuading us to do an hour of rifle drill which ends 20 minutes before my english language exam. I wonder how the invigilator would react to me walking in wearing combat 95 uniform?
