Re: Electronic Waste

Strip it all out and take all the copper and aluminium you can.

Go to a scrap yard and sell it off as scrap metal.

Re: English Spam Thread and General Rubbish

The bike itself will bring them to justice. The swing-arm bearings are stuffed, the ignition timing is off by 1 or 2 degrees, plus the fact that the carb need to be rebuilt means that it's near impossible to start without a nice, steep hill, and lastly the fuel-tap is stuck on because the level has ...

Re: English Spam Thread and General Rubbish

I haven't even had a chance to report it yet. My boss has farked off on an outjob, and I have to wait for him to get back before I can go out to the station. Best part is that him and my mom are together, so it was actually HIS property it was parked on. (I'm borrowing my mom's car for the moment. I...

Re: Windows 8 Release

I stand by what I originally said about Windows 8. I'm really impressed at the UI. Its clean, neat and works quite well. And I'm impressed by how much effort Microsoft put into making the new UI accessible for mouse and keyboard users. However, I don't see this taking off at all. It's just too much ...

Re: English Spam Thread and General Rubbish

So, I passed my driver's license test earlier today.

My first thought was: How is it that so many people fail such an easy test?!?

(Of course, my 3-years experience on the road with my motorcycle probably had something to do with it).

Re: Steam Specials!

Somehow, I managed to get through the entire Steam sale without buying a single game, no matter how much I wanted it.

Sad truth, with my working 7-days a week, I'll never have time to play said games.

So, anyone know of a very good hospital plan?

Basically, I'm looking for something that if I'm hospitalised, then my costs are covered. I'm not looking for a medical aid or any of that.

He's unemployed. He's a whiny byatch that will complain the second I try and assert myself, and he whines the way that you just want to agree so that he shuts up.

Need urgent help setting up QoS server.

I can't take the incessant whining of my lazy, good-for-nothing 'I-will-sit-and-play-games-all-day' low life I call a brother.

Re: Unbalanced discs

Sorry for the offtopic, but I think you've just come up with a brilliant Christmas Special (or Subscribers Special or something), KillerByte. Instead of the usual (Or, including the usual) DVD, you have a 8GB or 10GB flashdrive with data on it. Of course, such a special would need to have a higher p...

Re: Windows 8

No, that was just me presuming.

I've only used the Release Preview - and I'm liking it so far.

Although, I can definitely see that this OS isn't going to take off like Windows 7 did. It's just too alien, and too much of a jump from the familiar start menu for people to invest the time in it.

They've managed to keep things easy and simple to use, despite a total lack of a start menu. I mean - you can even search in the start screen the same way you did with the old one. T...

Re: Looking for Free PST Repair Program

I had a look at that program, and it doesn't seem to be doing what I need it to do. It's used to find deleted/lost files on your harddrive.

It doesn't really matter. The customer has to deal with the loss of her emails - she was warned against letting her mailbox get too big.

Thanks anyways.

So I finished Diablo 3 on Normal last night. I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed in the game's length. I mean, I remember Diablo 2 being at least twice as long gameplay wise. Now, of course there is the harder difficulties, but still. The game was...too easy. (Even for a 'normal mode') At the very...

Re: Diablo 3 Official!!!

It would make sense if they had the same system that they had in D2, where gold is shared by the party equally.

Else, you'd have people that start botting and running up to the gold before anyone else can reach it.
