    Yeah, the music was great and it was fun as well, they've decided to do another album though so instead of the final frontier, they called it the driveway to the final frontier, I got the time wrong, when I looked at the timetable I thought it was an hour long but it's actually around 3 :D (just the main performance the whole thing was 6:30-11:00)

    the opening( dragonforce)was good but at the end of the day it just wasn't anywhere near as good as maiden themselves , to be expected though really as it's only their second performance with the new guy

    What's irritating now is that there aren't any good tours on till after Christmas that I'm aware of

    Video doesn't really do it justice of course, still better then the pictures my friend took with his iPhone

    One thing that surprised me is the variety of people there, and everyone was really nice as well.

    Sorry for the double its hard to add in a quote on my phone:(

    Even though they are old dudes now Maiden have still got it! I like classic Maiden and the new stuff not so much.

    Well i might be going to the Red Hot Chili Peppers gig at the SECC they just announced a new tour. I dont really like going to gigs but i make an exception for them as im a big fan so to speak.

    Thanks MM, but i would preferably deal with Sam or Tatty or Kuro even. No offense to you. but i havent traded with you before, and i dont know you that well either as you havent been with the forums that long and the last thing i need is someone running running away with my money :p

    but thanks for the offer

    If only they'd allow you to go around the scammers house and break his legs with a crowbar while your mates ransack his house. Breaking his fingers is also optional. but he needs to be able to push himself around in a wheelchair....

    thats the worst thing about dealing online,there are some total cunts that won't think twice about pulling a fast one.
    I sold an r/c car on ebay last year and the guy didnt have a clue,he told me he broke it and wanted to send it back for a full refund :laugh:
    so i emailed the text to ebay and let it go.
    Then he tried to reverse payment by card,and then opened an ebay case,all the while telling me he done this and that to it,now its a melted pile of metal an plastic but i want my money back...
    i only wish i could see that wanker face to mashed face...

    Scotland is miles to far to go even to straighten someone out especially for a piddly couple hundred quid

    nah, it was a new guy that kinda just joined the forum a few weeks ago and tried to sell stuff on the forums. claimed he was well established on aria and some other forums. had good heatware etc etc.

    then he sold piggy a dodgy PS3 claiming it was fine, it broke within a week. and then a member here called Huskie bought it - opened it up and found out that someone had already opened it up before and done a shitty repair job on it. It was obvious that it wasnt a qualified Sony tech that did the work. and since it was already opened up the warranty seal was broken.

    Luckily Huskie is an electrician so he understands what he hes looking at and he manged to fix it.

    So you can understand my reluctance to deal with newcomers when it comes to dealing with money/trades.

    that must have been heartbreaking ot buy it then find its nackered so soon after buying it.

    yea i understand about dealing,i tend to go by instincts with people otherwise i wouldnt have offered-but of course everyone is different and have there own way of gauging wether something is kosher or not.

    Ive only sold & bought a few items on TPU, Most of dealings were with Scam. I do prefer my hardware new though...I love that 'brandnew' smell when you unbox something thats just come directly from the warehouse. also with new parts, they dont have a previous service history so theres no need to worry about how its been treated by the previous owner.

    Most of the members on the forums treat their hardware fairly good. the only real complaints ive heard from trading members was the item was dusty. previous owner didnt bother giving it a wipe when putting it in a box.

    I cant stand dusty hardware. Just looking at the build up on my 902's dust filters makes me sick. so whatever i send out gets a good blast with a air duster and a full wipe down otherwise i wouldnt be able to look at it or pick it up.

    (OCD is a lovely thing)

    Yup, through the power of the community, we got watercooled banned (in the long run) :pimp:

    Freedom, did you get that sorted? PM me if you still need help with it.
     
    Bo$$ and FreedomEclipse say thanks.
