    Doesn't Win7 have a built-in MIDI tester? Might have to select the MIDI under Recording Devices or something but I would have thought there'd be a way to at least play MIDI through Win7.

    Salesman with a vested interest Kieran?but yea a phone is essential these days,wont your brother lie for you?he must know wether your good for it or not.
    Plus you don't Have to have direct debits,i pay an extra £4 a month for a little more flexibility with bills-i just call when i'm ready to pay/when i cant hold it off any longer,
    but its a must for me as i have to juggle money all the while...

    Sam,yes i know xp did have a midi thingy whrere you used the GM bank,but i cant find it in 7 and im only using onboard sound atm so i gave up and i will go through the rigmaroll of cubase 5 + win7 tomorrow..

    Orrr i will get the p4 machine working tonight as the keyboard didnt take that long and install sx3 on there=Win :D

    Contracts depend on credit rating? I walked into the t mobile shop, told the guy the exact phone and contract i wanted, walked out with the phone 4 mins later, walked back in 30 seconds later asking him to move my contacts over, then walked out again

    Yes they do a background credit rating check to see if your good for payments. Totally uncalled for as me personally that's not my credit rating. Dont ask as i dont know why they tie a credit rating to a house, i think it should be a personal thing.

    Its probably one stupid little detail that fucked up the rating on that house we used to live at. As i said i wasn't even living there at the time, it was just my father who was there on his own while it was being sold. Apparently my mum had problems with getting a mortgage because of that house too. Yeah i don't care i shouldn't tell randoms but its probably my fathers fault for not paying the mortgage or something while the house was up for sale. My mum and dad paid their mortgage and everything was fine then after they got separated my dad must've done something and fucked the rating on the house so if i use it for a previous address it flags up even though its fuck all to do with me. I shouldn't have a problem if i lived here at this current place long enough to not need a previous address.

    My brother would say i did live at his so i could say his place was my previous address but now ive given my details im fucked so i have to phone this equifax that are fuck all to do with me as i don't have a credit rating.

    All that garbage just for a phone lol

    If you need to up your credit rating, get one of those pre-paid credit card things to help with a theory of mine :D From what I've read, it's classed as a credit-card so what happens with it affects your credit rating, but because it's impossible to go into debt with it, it looks like a pretty much guaranteed way of helping with a bad rating.

    Just a theory.

    I don't even have a credit rating its someone else lol. I have never had a loan or defaulted on a debit payment or anything like that.

    Its stupid i could have lied and said i lived at someone with a good rating to use as a previous address but they wont let me do it again because ive been checked. This place probably has a decent rating but ive only been here for what 10months?

    EDIT: I dont even have an overdraft or credit card either lol just a debit card.

    Ill be making some enquires for sure.

    Hey mate, when I first got over here they wouldn't give me a contract phone either, because I had no credit history (I had no credit card for about two years). Anyway, the only way I got round it was to pay a 'deposit' to Orange when I set up the contract. Essentially it was £100-£150 and they held it for 12 months just in case I defaulted. They then gave it back to me as credit on my account (although I did have to ask). You might be able to go about it that way.
    Although correcting your credit rating is obviously the best plan in the long run.

    Well, I just got my SSD. Only 1 unfortunately :) Still, ebuyer stuck to their word and made sure I got it today. Will try and get some compo out of them though.

    So do I format this thing? When I install windows 7 do I let it create that system partition as normal or partition the disk beforehand?

    Any help is appreciated as I don't want to stuff it up before I even get to use it :)

    use the windows 7 install disk, it'll recognize it as an SSD and take the appropriate action

    Fixed.

    TheMailman has made a decent thread in regards to the SSDs and what not. He's a good troll guy.

    In bold? My cryptic way of getting you to notice.... well, something like that.

    LOL! That guy. I honestly think he sees infractions like pins from BC2 or something.

    You sound like the sort of person who wouldn't have any infractions anyway, tommorow's a nice day for me as 2 of mine 'expire'.

    Good news everyone, i'm back to using my old PC, with a phenom ii x4, 4GB ram, and a broken PSU.

    Despite my trolling, I have not received any infractions yet. Perhaps the higher authorities are polishing the banstick to get rid of me in one swipe.

    EDIT:does anyone know how thermal paste works?, it's just a bit strange how i fitted my heatsink, started running WCG, and my temps seem to be slowly dropping, although their still slightly higher then they were before

    i have 1 infraction (expired) and 3 warnings. one of the ways to get instabanned imo is just start a thread cussing off all the TPU mods and admins, try and make it into a huge wall of text before they turf you out.

    weather or not you get instabanned or infracted first depends on the mods/admins disgression.
    some mods might know you quite well and give you an infraction as a warning rather then just hit the killswitch straight away and send you the way of elvis.

    Its a good way to find out which mod has it in for you as their likely to be the ones that skip the warnings and straight out twat you in the face with the ban hammer.

    on a side note....
    Just for nostalgia, Ive been playing the Original Unreal Tournament on my laptop... I really miss the announcers voice lmao, it still cracks me up.

    I wish TPU had that announcers voice when someone gets ban hammerd.

    mo-mo-mo-mo-monster kill!

    That can be one of two things. Or both :p

    1) When running WCG, the temps top out, and then they "settle" a little bit lower. Leave WCG running for an hour to get a steady temp.
    2) Curing time of your TIM (if any).
