Despite their service checker says there is nothing wrong but clearly there is something wrong.

Switch your DNS on the router from Virgin's to Google's. That frequently resolves issues with people I assist on BT Internet. BT's DNS servers are shockingly bad.

The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:
  • 8.8.8.8
  • 8.8.4.4

"Source BBC Sport"
England retained their Six Nations title and equalled New Zealand's world record for consecutive Test wins with a seven-try demolition of sorry Scotland.

It was England's highest score in this oldest of international fixtures and equalled their biggest winning margin against Scotland as the Calcutta Cup was retained with style and swagger.

It means England face Ireland in Dublin next weekend with both consecutive Grand Slams and a world record of 19 Test wins in their sights.

They had 512GB Crucial SSDs going for £90 at some branches. I was around our local staples earlier, even the reduced to clear stuff was still stupidly expensive. 4TB for £130...? Yeah, i'll look elsewhere.

Im waiting for their PC chairs to go on clearance before going to pick one up

On a side note -- enjoying some Highland Park 12y.o. Lovely bit of whisky. It was a little harsh at first but once you nurse it a little it has a faint taste of coffee and rolls off in a nice sweet honey flavour.

::EDIT::

On a side note -- the bike ride went fine thanks for asking -- It was 61 miles to Southend and i was so exhausted that i actually took a tumble half a mile before the finishing point and fucked my wrist and leg up but i still managed to limp it to the finishing point for a full breakfast then a train home with probably another 3miles on the bike. I hit 30mph going down some of the hills but I could have gone a lot faster but there were others in front of me and i was terrified that i would lose control of the bike and end up in a ditch in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night :p

Pushed down from the 1800X, in part hoping the XFR boost implies minor binning.

I knew you said you were getting a 1800x but they both have XFR so I'm confused?

The 1700x is over £100 cheaper...

I'm with you on that one, I'd probably even cheap out and get the 1700! Well that's £100 saved for your 1080Ti then ;)

Goddammit. Despite it being listed as in stock (last one), just been informed the GSkill memory is out of stock. The hunt continues...

Americans in America are celebrating being Irish today.

They have chosen to be Irish instead of American as being American isn’t fun any more.

One American said:


“We used to love being American and telling everyone that we were American. Sadly, those days have gone and when we’re abroad now, we try and get away with pretending to be Canadian. As it’s St Patrick’s Day, we thought that we may as well be Irish because that’s a lot more fun. You get to drink a lot, dance a lot and have more of a laugh. We’re not sure who’s in charge over there but who cares? It’s better than being over here.”

One Irish person said:

“Top of da day to ya etc etc,” and other stereotypical phrases.

Ey up guys,

Just thought I'd pop in and say hi.

I'm loving my new system, got the 6700k oc'd to 4.5-1.35v, v nice, my cooler is doing a grand job too.
On another note, I have been cycling a lot, as I have stopped smoking, including weed, and my thighs are looking very Wiggins like now, can't wait to show them off in summer. I must be the fittest 48 year old in my area.
Only downer is that I am now on long term sick for PTSD I don't go out on foot no more at all, and apart from being on my bike twixt my flat and my partner Sue's I don't go out very much at all really.
Hope all you tpu Brits are OK though.

Being out on the bike is fun! Best thing to do is go out for fairly long ish rides into the countryside or ride to a far away beach somewhere. Getting a dog is a good way to cure PTSD too!!


I had a heart attack this morning. I got out of bed and my monitor wouldnt power on and i was cursing at myself while having a sinking feeling thinking i had to fork out £300-500 for a half decent 1440p or even 4k monitor this time... No! its fine! the power cable was loose :p

I have found patience with old age....

Still awaiting RGB G.Skill 3200 memory and for 1080ti's to get in stock. Going full air cooling... maybe.
