    f**king hell mate. If it works. I will set up a regular direct debit to your account for £10 a month. Better then paying £15 a month for this mobile broadband Bullshit

    I have a fairly strong signal with those (at least my 10dB antenna is good for something) but the problem is the prices put me off!

    £33.90 altogether. Unlimited anytime landline calls and unlimited 19.5Mb Broadband. And the unlimited wifi minutes.
    Have a look here to see how the Openzone/Fon thing works.

    I can get a BTFon network on my Net PC (Not my one - I could see the network before I got my broadband)

    Yup, just logged into it selecting BT Openzone to login.

    What game did you get?

    btw for all UK readers, the sun + greenman gaming free games this weekend. Arma II and Men of War stand out. Can't complain for free!

    Only prob is the GMG site is pretty slow. But I got all three games took around 1/2 hour of clicking and refreshing!

    The games are free over this weekend and if you get them in time you can keep em forever.

    Arma 2 looks pretty hardcore not sure I have time to learn it!

    PS scam you can always get them tomorrow. It's sunny now isn't it? :)

    Well i know what region 2 is but what is region B? The blu ray is special edition btw, the dvd is not that much i can tell from just those pages. I bet the blu ray is all remastered and shit too.

    I just discovered it will be like £8 to ship per pc case. Tempted to sell both my cases and get a 600T in white. Yeah i know a few posts back i said i was thinking of it.

    Blu-Rays have different regions to DVD's, i believe there's only 3 vs 5 with DVD's and their done at a software level so many players will play all regions

    Is it worth getting the Blu-Ray?, i do like special editions :)

    i'm just looking at what to get as they've got all their anime on sale http://www.sendit.com/dvd/offers/manga-s-20th-anniversary.list (never say i don't provide you guys with a lot of cheap anime :laugh:)

    Obviously assuming you have a Blu-Ray player... do you like watching the Blu-Ray over DVD? If not then go for the DVD.

    Personally when it comes to things like special editions, I get them, because I do enjoy watching the extras that you get.

    Blu-rays are a weird situation for me, due to the way things have ended up being set up, i can either watch DVD's on a 42" plasma with surround sound, or Blu-rays on a 32" LCD (Which actually takes up a lot of my vision as i sit about 1m away from it) with headphones

    Do you guys think i should start a petition or something to get a Sky movies anime channel

    i like special editions as they look nice normally (i also like to feel i'm supporting the people who made the movie)
