Soon as the kids have finished watching this film I'm gonna have a razz. About an hour.
Well, something like xfire but you need all other forum ids too.
I think an app would be better for that, rather than a site. Kind of like Xfire; a client on your desktop that you can use to add and remove forum names etc. would be good for people that have different usernames for different forums.
I like your idea. You should pitch it to Kreij.
Actually, isn't Kreij making that exact thing? I'm sure he was working on a TPU game client thing. IIRC he posted a beta of it a while back I think, not sure.
What I have in mind is less of a personal use but more of a "hey Scam is my friend in TPU but I wonder who he is in other places" kind of thing.
I think it's a brilliant idea. Muchly liked.
I wish this film would hurry up and finish. I'm gagging for a little rinse out The mrs is doing dinner tonight so I can sit back and relax. It'll be the first time I've gamed during the day for like aaaages!!
back after almost 2 weeks without internet access!
How water resistant are HTC mobile phones? (i think you can guess whats happened)
not at all, the wildfire has no water resistant measures...
make sure you dry it out properly before attempting to power up again
If you dropped it in the shitter and had to fish it out.
your rating goes up to 100 on my list
yeah, it's drying out at the moment, i'm hoping i'll survive, but if it doesn't, i think the warranty that's on it actually covers accidental damage
Couldn't find you on there MM, it said no-ones online by that name. I don't know how to work it properly yet
no, went in the washing machine, and water got inside it somehow
Yeah washing machines tend to do that mate, lol.
Sticking it in a bag of (uncooked) rice is undisputably the best trick ever.
You gone for so long, I thought we had to send flowers to your family
did that, didnt work too well
You did it wrong. It's the best trick ever. Science says so
but the problem is the water's in unusual places, like between the layers in the screen
i'm just keeping the phone very warm until the screen is dry, then i'm going to put the battery in and see what happens
Keeping your phone very warm will just keep the water warm. Rice actually sucks the moisture from the air so it's better than keeping your phone warm.
If you leave your phone in a bag of rice, it will take about 24 hours to dry. Most other methods take twice as long. It's a fact, and there's a good reason thousands of people swear by the rice trick.
what if i put the rice on the radiator as well?
+1 to rice, stick it in for a 4days to a week and then see how it goes
I've had to do it 4 times, it only took 24 hours each time, even in winter. These were all Sony Ericcson W810i's (I've had to fix a shed load of them). No doubt depends on the type of phone.
slow-cooked rice anyone?
I'm guessing you're not serious.
i am serious, it spent all of last night in a bag of rice on a radiator
The last time I had to do that it took 4 days :/
Sous vide rice should be good, if those top chefs know their thing
Keep it in a dry place mate, you don't want moisture in the air.
W810i's - 4 times quicker than any other phone!!!
They are amazing
