    British gas are crap though, they got fined a few days ago for their stupidity

    at the end of the day, i can never describe something very well in writing, plus i can only type at around 50-60 words a minute (source = http://play.typeracer.com/), so talking to people it much faster for me

    Nah, essays are great, i get A/A* in most of 'em

    Do you think i should make a thread or something about that?, maybe i could screenshot in step for step and make it more in depth?, and good luck modding it, show me what you end up with once you've finished

    EDIT:I was playing learn to fly 2 and look what came up --> [​IMG]

    nice, looks a bit cluttered for my tastes

    Ignore what i said about the thread, i'm thinking of starting some sort of club, where people can share tips on these sorts of things, desktops, taskbars, basically anything that allows you to customize the look of windows

    It was decided a few posts later by Tatty to uphold the values of the original post.
    My desktop is clean i used to have a dock bar 2 years ago but now i just have a few icons and thats it, i tried to go all start menu once didnt like it after awhile. I dont run those shitty widgets they just drain resources for the amount of time im on desktop anyway its useless.

    Yeah i guess so lol,finally completed a chapter on Gundam Musou 3/Dynasty Warriors gundam 3.

    And i love it on ebay when people give feedback of most typical yet ineffective feedback "fast delivery" yeah alright a week is a fast delivery in the UK. Also hate it when people sell stuff they don't even have courtesy to message you back when you send them a message.

    Don't forget there's the guy who's English but works in Spain or something - he was accepted among us :laugh:


    I used to be terrible on the phone, but one day I just thought "think fast" and now I can say I'm damn good. Probably got a lot to do with the music making thing (freestyling requires fast thinking) but yea, I can leave an answer phone message without any "umms" and "aahs" now. Knowing what you've got to say beforehand helps too :laugh:

    Yea, but the bit I quoted, said "suggests they have to live in the UK". That's what I was pointing at.
