    either the Ebuyer site is borked or they are going to make me wait until monday before delivering my SSD :( my order status has been stuck at 'picking in progress' since 2am last night (does it really take them 10hrs just to pick an SSD off their shelves at their warehouse???)

    I orderd it on monday for free delivery (4-5 working days i think thats what it was) And i doubt their gonna deliver it on Saturday as i didnt pay for that service.

    Yeah, there will be people up at 2am waiting for your order so that they can process it instantly! /sarcasm

    Cut them some slack, it usually takes them a day or so to ready a product, and for me, as long as they deliver the package in 1 week, I don't mind how long they take (unless I ordered next day or something silly like that).

    Been looking for an Amiga 1200 but they cost at least £100! A few years back i could have got one for £30-ish.

    Just had the sudden urge to set up an Amiga and play some old games, interested to see if i can get one with an accelerator board installed (those are £100 on their own). Funny thing is they can still surf the internet and play MP3s although not very well id imagine.

    you and i both know that is BS - As some postmen start work around an hour later - So yes I expect there is a late shift who finish off the work that the early shift couldnt do. just because the business closes at 7/8PM everyday doesnt mean that its all stop behind closed doors.

    DHL are the same - work carries on through the night

    Yeah, but etailers don't usually need to ship things this fast anyway, they have little if any reason to do it. If they leave it to next day before they ship them though, I will bet frustrated too.

    well... Im definitely not getting the SSD until Monday now :laugh: unless they ship it for saturday (fingers crossed)


    Couriers should work monday to sunday - Im sure they got enough staff to make a 'rolling roster' for drivers to take turns doing weekends/sundays. and i say this because E-tailers dont count the weekend as working days :cry: but its still an extra 2days wait to get what we orderd despite them saying 2-5days delivery time - If theres a weekend in the middle - youre screwd!

    I thought that maybe they would have been nice enough to get it to me before the weekend so I got something to play with but *sigh* guess I got my hopes up

    It wasn't an invitation to Tatty's house but rather "Memory Lane". I've been there before, its nothing but disappointments!

    Amiga CD32 is shit i wonder who the hell paid £90 for it, i wouldn't even take one for free. I collect a lot of retro games and that, recently just got a Sega Master System with 2 controls and the phaser light gun, 3 games with it for £15 inc p+p. Its hard to find the original model for cheap the Model 2 is much more common. The original can take a scart cable the model 2 is RF only, jesus RF sucks balls.

    I THINK I SHOULD SHUT UP NOW.

    nvm - solved the problem - but if you really need to know - Google '10.10e Pink tint' - I re-benched with the 10.10e drivers and i score just under 22k with my 5850s
