Ive still put in a request though so we'll see how it goes - If it all goes to plan i'll be sipping sangria by Tuesday.

How much was ticket to Grantham? I think id fit right in seeing as I come from a place with 'Ham in it

Also, I came home today to find this....



One of the builders who was doing our loft conversion tripped up and put his foot through the ceiling of my bedroom right above where my PC is, However - that didnt stop my mum turning into a life size ROOMBA bot and sweeping all the stuff i had on my desk into bags and stor-boxes

So far, my PC is intact and so is my alcohol collection. If something is missing or damaged then i will make the builder comp me £200 outright.


This shit happened while i was at work and my dad didnt message or call me because he didnt want me to worry... to which i then responded: If your dad (His dad/my grandpapy who is currently hospitalised due to a severe stroke) suddenly kicked the bucket while he was at work, wouldnt he liked to be informed???

Obviously he wasnt impressed but he got the point. my PC is worth at least around two grand give or take a few hundred here n there. Ive invested a lot of my wages into this thing and the last thing i need is not to be told when its been involved in an accident which could potentially see it written off for good.


This thing is my pride and joy....

Come to Newark instead, I'll be moving there on the 22nd December (bye bye Grantham), so I'll have a spare room for you to stay overnight in if you please (show, spare towels, PC to play on etc). Plus we have a bunch of awesome pubs, and I'll be a richer man on the 23rd December too. @Tatty_One is also most welcome, told my partner about you guys.

It's not overly busy. But yeah, sometime after christmas I'm free, I'll ask my partner if she minds you hitting up the spare room for the night. Her parents are ex-brewers so they're big beer drinkers.

Jumped on an amazon warehouse openbox for some Philips Fidelio X1/00's - it was £125 last night but this morning it was £123.50 or something and quite a lot of the 'original box - damaged packaging' ones had already been sold, leaving only the ones with slight cosmetic damages. Bought the last 'original box - damaged packaging' openbox & also got a modmic coming in from MASSDROP since modmic was charging $61 in total to have it shipped to me here in the UK.

I think the modmic is well overpriced for what it is, but i needed a mic with a mute switch as im too lazy to bind a finger to push to talk.


::EDIT::

oh, and happy christmas to me i guess :p

Is there an estimated time for delivery? I might get a ModMic myself.

I'll see how it goes. It might not happen until closer to the 10th but its all up in the air at the moment as i have no idea how many days i have for leave, one minute they're telling me its 15.6days then the next theyre telling me 7days.

No ETA yet, but i wll let you know as soon as its on its way. In total it cost $47 - if youre gonna get it definitely get it from MassDrop. I normally dont bother with MassDrop usually purely for the reason that there isnt too much difference between the price in the UK and the price in the US after the cost of shipping is added - we're talking around £10 or less. No point waiting 2-3weeks to have something delivered for £8 less.

In the case of the modmic though, they arent sold in the UK so the only place to get it is off an ebay merchant, directly from Antlion themselves or sites like MassDrop. The only thing that comes close is the V-Moda BoomPro mic and for £25 they're more or less in the same ballpark.

Ok crazy (not so crazy) question. Crazy because I cannot find a straight answer online from HMRC. My wife is going to NYC next week for a holiday with her mum. If she buys, let's say a gfx card from Microcenter for her own use, does she need to pay any tax on it when she returns. Also, if it is a gift and she has transported it herself - does it need import duty? I know if it was posted from US to UK, it get's import duty and tax but if she buys it and transports it herself - what's the deal?

And if that's not enough, if my wife picked up a couple of GFX cards from a mutual friend and she brought them back as a gift (for which no financial transaction took place) what happens then?

Answers soon - might upgrade :laugh:

No, pack it in your suitcases and walk it through. Last time I got stopped in customs they couldn't care less. I've also walked through customs with about 20 litres of beer, and the customs guy couldnt be bothered so ushered me through.
