MightyMission, where is it being delivered from?
Damn. Yeah looks like a car drive will be the way to go.
I had to walk 2 and a half miles in that in a dinner suit yesterday... Quite impressed at how quickly the trousers dried off afterwards!
Anyway, time for iPlayer and Doctor Who!
ive just gone on the page, read the words president nixon and automaticly knew this would be AWESOME
lol, when you first go over to HD you don't see much diffrence but once you've got use to it try to watch anything in SD and it just looks rubbish - SKY+HD FTW!!!
Haha, sweet. I saw the second half of it yesterday while trying to teach myself to tie a bow tie... didn't quite go according to plan! This is just one of many ploys to avoid revision!
I must remember this!!!
sorry guys lack of sleep is my only excuse,thanks for suggestions tho
the unit is (cm measurements) 55wx45dx90h@40kg
but i will give the links a try...i spent hours looking up couriers last night and couldnt find any that would shift let alone insure an a/c unit.
plus i still got to shift a fruit machine lol that things bloody heavy!
I got two of them to sell and oddly enough both the highest offers on the larger unit are in cambridge.
The smaller a/c is only about 15kg so the courier is only £8 but of course its not such a pretty purchase when it would struggle chilling a big room.
It wouldnt bother me to do the roadtrip but i lost my license so she would have to do the 238 mile round trip,i better continue looking...
All this just to have some spare funds for upgrades
Galactic Civilizations 2 works better.
why are people supposedly throwing street parties? it's not like the 70s anymore
i mean yeah.. it's a royal wedding but still?
Not when you only have a netbook with you! (Stuck 25 miles from home at my gran's which means I'm 25 miles from my desktop!) The Dr Who episode was pretty good I thought, waiting for the next one now though!
get an ION netbook, im gonna upgrade my semi new pimped out mini 311 for an M11x in exactly 70 days, if you want it we can sort something out then?
I'm moving down south in less than 100 days and will only have stuff in one house down there and won't be visiting grandmother's/ family members without a prepaid train ticket home! So thanks for the offer but it's not required, at least if I'm at my gran's I can't get distracted from revision by PC games!
Started building a scaffold play ground in the woods at my friends fishery yesterday.
Doing more today, so much damn fun.
Surprisingly strong as well considering we've mostly just tied scaffold bars to trees!
Fishery?..... I see a holiday looming
brilliant, so where abouts will you be joining civilization (just to clarify i hate the north - no problem with the people living in it)(why is it so cold?????????)
also: 2 more posts to 500 - this is a bigger milestone then mussels 30000
Fairly close to Orpington, I've still got to arrange accomodation though! (I'm looking at sharing with a couple of other people doing my placement but I need my employer to finish up with their pre-employment checks so I can get contact details for other people on the placement first). Good to know that you don't have any problem with northerners, that said... most of us call southerners a bunch of wimps due to your response to the weather! I love how you're commenting on the north being cold when there's not a cloud in sight and the sun's been shining for at least the last 3 hours! Not really going to be sure what to do with my weekends when I'm there, too much choice, I'll probably start with finding a good pub!
Edit: It's so cold because it's the north, there's no other good reason (other than geography but that has no humour in it...)
you won't find them down south
been loving the whether down here, haven't seen a cloud in days
last 3 hours is nothing down south, its not really classified as sunny until you've had about 3 days straight of sun
i also hate the lack of technology and phone reception up north
Not sure where you're classifying as the north in terms of getting no phone reception! I have no problem on anywhere except army training areas and sat under a concrete beam in the basement at school.
My definition of good pub's fairly loose, it requires real ale and not being full of utter knobs, I'll manage to find one somewhere!
I'll admit the south is having better weather at the moment though!
you are soooo lucky, this damn BSOD box is too distracting
Cheesy northern weather is for real men, I fucking love it!
Bo$$, northern weather's awesome, right up until you have to help push vehicles out of snow drifts! Newcastle's just a bit cold and occasionally damp, thank god I don't live in the lake district, it only seems to rain there (except for my DoE gold exped which was baking sunshine the whole time).
I know i have lived there through 6 months of winter, our car broke down 2 time and got stuck another 4 times but it was still a great experience
Haha, I just catch public transport anywhere so the snow doesn't cause many issues, it tends to be the cold freezing points up etc, it was dipping to about -12C in the mornings when I was walking to school this winter and the anti-freeze they were putting onto the points for the Metro (Newcastle/ Sunderland version of the Underground) was freezing onto the points. Apart from that though I just throw on my cold weather gear and my walking boots and get on with it, no use whinging about the cold weather, can't change it!
where i live public transport stopped working for a few days last winter so thats not an option, lukily there isn't much snow down south(only a few inches) so driving everywhere was an option
here we got 8inches in one day, couldn't drive anywhere at all. i tried to drive to high wycombe (a journey that takes about 40 minutes normally), and it took me 5 hours to get there, 6 to get back.
Anyone with an online banking account with £40 to spare care to help a brother out??
Ive not touched my pc at all for a few days. but when i booted it up just this morning the fan started making this loud buzzing/grinding noise.
I completely dismantled the HSF unit, I thought id give the fan bearing a bit of grease but sapphire has made it so that you cant get to the bearing.
Im short of cash, and i already deposited £80 in the bank but for some reason it hasnt gone through and due to the royal wedding etc etc i need to get a new cooler orderd in before royal mail completely shutdown for the event.
what a perfect time for a fan to die.
I will transfer the money back when my £80 clears. I just need £40 right now so i can put in an order for some Twin Turbo Pro's otherwise Im stuck with this fucking LOUD grinding noise until next week and its driving me mad.
