    You got them spot on!!!

    Apparently my job search has not been upto scratch even though i have filled in my job log with 11 job's i've applied for, the actual reason they suspended my claim is because i haven't used thier services to look for work (i've actually been looking via third party websites and/or directly at companies).

    They're being pretty sadistic about it to be honest.

    Thats retarded. When I had to do that stuff as long as they could see I was trying they didn't care how I went about it. I would appeal their idiotic decision.

    Do they force anyone whos not got an appointment out at yours too?

    They have a security guard to sit and point to which way your meant to go sit and wait at... and it is an open plan area, a sign would probably be cheaper. :D

    Hint hint, get him practicing on the crappy touch screens. Why the heck do they say I have to come in 10 minutes before sign in to look on the directories for a job, when I can do it from home and on my mobile (if I was really desparate)?

    Grr it's like a big F' you for not finding work while we sit here all day doing nothing but pretend work.

    And another thing, employers only looking for 2:1 students, go stick your head down the loo and flush a few times. Just because one sucks in an exam doesn't mean they can't do the same job. :/

    Let not the UK club house thread die!

    What's the cheapest thing you have ordered online (including p&p and must be from a shop)?

    Just got a 8cm akasa blue led fan for £2.78 free delivery. It's damn hard finding items for less than £2. :)

    I ordered my Processor, GPU and DVD drive from them, good customer service and prompt delivery, I'd say go for it.

    You have got to be kidding me, Youtube is censored in Turkey!
    Definitely never coming here on holiday EVER again, too hot, full of people who would prefer to look like someone from Iraq while getting skin cancer, it's everything I detest about british holiday makers all rolled into one.

    I'll just watch it next wednesday, I REALLY can't be arsed with anything other than stuff just working right now due to sleep deprivation (yes, I am staying in a five star hotel but that apparently is less compatible with sleep than being under a plastic sheet when it's p*ssing it down back in Britain).

    I hate it. It's heavy, has a battery life of 30 minutes maximum after a year of use, keyboard has a slight curve on it which REALLY puts me off while typing (that's a personal thing but it still drove me nuts), customer service is AWFUL.
    Simple description of what happened:
    Dad plugs in the printer's power adapter frying the PSU (don't ask how)
    Laptop returns with a supposedly replaced motherboard that has a malfunctioning sound card (won't recognise ANY external sound hardware), after 3 weeks develops an issue where it will boot only half of the time.
    Goes back to Acer again, they wipe the hard drive and reinstall the crapware, first thing it does is say the hard drive is not found, straight back (this happened two further times)
    Eventually they replace the mobo again, same sound issue but no issue with the hard disk.
    Something in the laptop overheats causing an instant shutdown, this will even happen when idling on the desktop with a laptop cooling stand in use.
    In short: Never buying Acer ever again.

    Just learned there was an air rifle range behind my house run by a family member :wtf: Anyways up there for hours shooting. Going back again this week, also my little bro's gf is a crazy good shot. Her first time shooting she broke the records for the highest score on targets at 20 metre.
