    I was just trying to find a cheaper choice for the same specs and I can't find one anywhere!

    Also the one on Aria you brought is now £73.98 so you've not done bad at all either way :toast:

    This time last month --> Having problems with backup software "What's the chance a hard drive will go wrong now?, I'll fix it later!"

    As of 10 minutes ago --> Entire operating system and 600gb of data lost "oh..."

    So to anyone reading this, BACKUP EVERYTHING NOW, because you never know when things'll stop working.

    Sorry to hear your loss. I spread my stuff with backups across 3 different harddrives, so I am safe (other than a massive blaze knocking my flat down, but I will have bigger worries when that happens)

    Chances of England going all the way in Euro 2012 anyone? I think we may fall before the final, possibly on penalties to the Germans :)

    The England game yesterday was dire, Milner and Ashley Young where particularly garbage. Nobody expects England to win so they might as well go for it in a blaze of glory rather then footer around with the ball.

    Germany are strong and look up for it but other than that its anyones tournament with some luck.

    It was bad, Gerrard played well though and we seem to have the luck this year. I'm hoping that we show a bit more flair and fluidity against the Italians.

    The German team scares me most, I think we could take Spain. Shame about the paddys but at least they had awesome support.

    So you actually think we might beat the italians? I doubt that very much lol, but hey who knows, I got 6-1 on England reaching the quarter finals, I placed my bet in April, if they make the Semi's I double up at 12-1, shame I only bet £25!

    I much preferred the 3-2 game earlier.

    Saying that, we are doing better then I expected :)

    @ Tatty - I think we can easily beat the Italians, nothing to fear IMHO. That said, I hope it's a good, flowing match with plenty of action.

    @Millenium - The Sweden match was awesome, made all the more sweeter because Zlatan had a go at Joe Hart after the swedes went 2-1 up.

    England is going down against Italy. Not that I am anti English or something, but they always choke when it comes to knockout stages and I don't want to be disappointed again.

    Englands problem is nobody plays like they do for their clubs, everybody plays predicable in their passing and movement.

    Id be more worried about the Italians than the Spanish. Italy have strong players and when in possession they play neat accurate football. You need to play a wide out ball against Italy as they dont have any wingers, instead Italy play a lot of holding and box to box central midfielders. Walcott will struggle against the stronger Italian players and like i said in my other post the other wingers have been guff. That's if Italy bring their game, they might not "turn up" they have been known to.

    I still cant believe the Czechs and Greece managed to qualify from their group.

    Hasn't been that great a tournament, beats the 2010 World Cup tho lol.

    For those of you who have been thinking of getting a mechanical keyboard, but put off by the cost, this might be of interest:

    EBAY

    Couple of caveats:
    • MX Blue only (but genuine)
    • Second hand
    • US layout only (could be fixed)

    But the price is amazing, around £20 delivered each. I bought two (one for work) and messaged him directly for £2 off the postage. Not bad!

    I think they may go pretty quick. Good luck....

    Very tempted, but my G11 still works so I am not going to replace it just yet.

    too low feedback (as a seller and buyer) for my liking - Id avoid, but for £20 i suppose its worth the gamble for some

    keyboard is non-usb, has no LEDs, no media keys and overall build quality is possibly suspect.
