(13 August 2013 - 06:36 pm) Serious lag here
(05 July 2013 - 07:52 pm) Yeah, not lucky - glad it wasn't me :)
(05 July 2013 - 07:38 pm) Oops... http://www.theregist...4/jilin_outrage
(01 July 2013 - 06:42 pm) Then again - http://news.sky.com/...hinese-lanterns
(01 July 2013 - 06:41 pm) Probably not
(01 July 2013 - 05:48 pm) Not to forget the damage the metal does to cows if they eat grass with it in...
(24 June 2013 - 05:55 pm) Security Essentials is far better and free
(24 June 2013 - 05:55 pm) Yes indeed Norton is utterly hopeless
(21 June 2013 - 03:39 pm) It's because judges can only sentence based on the tarrifs of the time of the offence
(18 June 2013 - 09:15 pm) What was that weird wizard game where you could win I think £100 if you were first to finish it...
(18 June 2013 - 09:15 pm) Not as I remember
(18 June 2013 - 09:08 pm) IIRC you got extra levels on the Acorn as it was B&W rather than colour on the BBC :)
(18 June 2013 - 09:04 pm) http://www.youtube.c...h?v=UgiA10MfOu4
(18 June 2013 - 09:03 pm) Bring back Frak :)
(17 June 2013 - 07:05 pm) Not too many though eh :) - Good luck...
(17 June 2013 - 06:41 pm) Did it go well? :)
(30 May 2013 - 09:44 pm) Ratpad for me
(28 May 2013 - 10:27 pm) night
(28 May 2013 - 10:19 pm) @BB That did have a searchlight, but a very different game
(28 May 2013 - 10:18 pm) Can't wait for those... Been a while since I played on them - like 20 years? :)
(28 May 2013 - 10:16 pm) That was a classic - lost a damn fortune on it back in the day though :(
(28 May 2013 - 10:13 pm) SearchLight - cool :)
(24 May 2013 - 06:35 pm) Search the forums for comprehensive answers, but basically it's tech is too new
(16 April 2013 - 07:50 pm) I can get one for half that :)
(06 April 2013 - 07:11 pm) Dead easy - got the cash within about 8 weeks IIRC
(06 April 2013 - 07:11 pm) @brownbag - I have. I used the forms found here - http://www.financial..._notes/ppi.html
(18 February 2013 - 09:29 pm) @ady - wherever they can get it cheapest, usually outside the uk or even the EU if it makes more profits
(31 January 2013 - 04:16 pm) Guess we may never know
(31 January 2013 - 04:11 pm) ... steps away slowly
(31 January 2013 - 04:02 pm) How so?
(19 November 2012 - 09:32 pm) .
(19 November 2012 - 08:57 pm) It works, but only updates when you shout :)
(19 November 2012 - 08:57 pm) .
(19 November 2012 - 07:43 pm) Seems one can only see shouts in the SB when shouting themselves...
(19 November 2012 - 07:42 pm) .
(19 November 2012 - 07:40 pm) Evening!! :)
(10 November 2012 - 07:10 pm) Still, more fun than MCd's / BK
(10 November 2012 - 07:03 pm) I took the kids to one once on the way somewhere - they thought I was taking the piss :)
(10 November 2012 - 07:03 pm) Little Chef are truely dire - and expensive - 99p for one water soaked bit of bacon!!
(10 November 2012 - 07:03 pm) Still, at least they did a half edible burger
(10 November 2012 - 07:01 pm) Aye - always fun playing outside next to the motorway :)
(10 November 2012 - 06:58 pm) http://en.wikipedia....iki/Happy_Eater
(10 November 2012 - 06:58 pm) Actually I'm wrong - it was the 90s
(10 November 2012 - 06:57 pm) They went bust in the 80s :( - Shame as they were much better than Little crappy Chefs that are still around
(10 November 2012 - 06:52 pm) Bring back Happy Eaters!! :)
(08 October 2012 - 09:37 pm) Feck - all these years and I never knew that cheat :)
(20 September 2012 - 06:26 pm) Wow - some Liverpool game huh?
(02 September 2012 - 09:02 pm) bint - nice...

(13 August 2012 - 08:45 pm) :D yeah can Google that for myself...
(01 August 2012 - 07:14 pm) :D
(01 August 2012 - 07:06 pm) Wow - quiet today :)
(09 July 2012 - 06:42 pm) If I could swing that past the missus I might actually go for it
(09 July 2012 - 06:33 pm) :) I actually considered that :)
(09 July 2012 - 06:30 pm) Thanks
(09 July 2012 - 06:30 pm) Cool - will take a look as it's online as well...
(09 July 2012 - 06:23 pm) Pretty much every other kind of sticker / stencil but not actual controls / buttons etc...
(09 July 2012 - 06:23 pm) Yeah I tried that sort of place but I just can't find anything vaguely suitable
(09 July 2012 - 06:20 pm) Looking like the only option :)
(09 July 2012 - 05:46 pm) Anyone know anywhere that sells stick on spaceship controls for kids beds / bedrooms?
(07 July 2012 - 08:26 am) Doing my shopping today, kids wanted to search for mice - not sure about that 1st product :)... http://www.sainsbury...D=1341650855416
(15 June 2012 - 05:28 pm) Still sunny here :)
(15 June 2012 - 12:35 pm) Still sunny here in Berkshire...
(13 June 2012 - 08:15 pm) It was well out of order though - keyboard hardmen those two...
(13 June 2012 - 07:16 pm) I landed a nice Cod - but it was at the chippy!! Diet --> Bin :)
(11 June 2012 - 08:10 pm) :) Animal porn :)
(11 June 2012 - 08:10 pm) Don't get much more real than that
(11 June 2012 - 08:08 pm) Yeah, glad he's taken the step - I've had an issue like that myself and it's a total nightmare until it gets sorted...
(11 June 2012 - 08:08 pm) :p no real loss
(11 June 2012 - 08:06 pm) Hear anything from RH?
(11 June 2012 - 08:05 pm) Yeah, it's weird the ppl you "meet" sometimes :)
(11 June 2012 - 07:56 pm) Sorry about your Dad ady btw...
(11 June 2012 - 07:56 pm) Wow! Should rename this Soapbox rather than Shoutbox - bizzare rants
(29 May 2012 - 07:09 pm) :s
(23 May 2012 - 09:28 pm) :)
(21 May 2012 - 06:17 pm) Not even a telnet respone on port 80 so looks like they're totally offlie atm
(21 May 2012 - 06:17 pm) .com and .ru
(21 May 2012 - 06:17 pm) Down for me...
(17 May 2012 - 12:37 pm) Lcd only
(17 May 2012 - 12:18 pm) Quiz machines emulater assist...
(17 May 2012 - 12:16 pm) Ah, found one - no bother :)
(17 May 2012 - 08:48 am) Thanks...
(17 May 2012 - 08:48 am) Anyone got a copy of INDE_SIM they could PM to me?
(13 May 2012 - 08:06 pm) Oh crap - I'm a Spurs fan but I've got money at high odds for Chelsea to win the CL. Not sure what I want now... :)
(10 May 2012 - 07:54 pm) Try super nudge gambler - largely the same...
(10 May 2012 - 07:51 pm) current even
(10 May 2012 - 07:50 pm) Not AFAIK it's a urrent tech...
(10 May 2012 - 07:49 pm) Not here...
(10 May 2012 - 06:55 pm) Enjoy!! :)
(10 May 2012 - 06:35 pm) (although that's partly to put home users off as we usually do company PCs)
(10 May 2012 - 06:34 pm) We charge a flat £80 for that sort of thing, assuming we actually can fix it + parts
(10 May 2012 - 06:34 pm) Or more, and they may not have fixed that either...
(10 May 2012 - 06:31 pm) Bounced us a company cheque
(10 May 2012 - 06:31 pm) Yeah, the f*cker...
(10 May 2012 - 06:29 pm) £20 he's taking the piss...
(10 May 2012 - 06:28 pm) He got prison time in the end, but we still lost out on most of the cash :(
(10 May 2012 - 06:28 pm) turned out the guy was a conman
(10 May 2012 - 06:28 pm) Yeah, we got stung one time for like £2500
(10 May 2012 - 06:09 pm) We got stung that way a few years ago...
(10 May 2012 - 06:08 pm) Bad plan!!
(07 May 2012 - 09:32 pm) Anything later and Windows Update should get it...
(07 May 2012 - 09:31 pm) http://driverscollec...4-bit-XP-7-free
(07 May 2012 - 09:31 pm) For XP - try here...
(07 May 2012 - 09:29 pm) What O/S?
(30 April 2012 - 07:49 pm) Or use ipv4 --> ipv6 tunnelling which they don't seem to be able to block
(28 April 2012 - 07:55 pm) No skin off my nose :):):)
(28 April 2012 - 07:52 pm) Not so much beer, but some weed :)
(28 April 2012 - 07:52 pm) Weird, I've done alright since then - worst bit for me was the early 90's recession
(28 April 2012 - 07:48 pm) If you want a religion with it in directly, best bet afaik is Rastafarianism
(28 April 2012 - 07:47 pm) Technically it's not in the religion per say, it's more of a cultural thing...
(28 April 2012 - 07:45 pm) Yeah, she doesn't do that - like it though...
(28 April 2012 - 07:41 pm) "went to kfc in week its full of foreigners" - well would you work there? - Yuk...
(28 April 2012 - 07:40 pm) She doesn't go about dressed like a dalek if that's what you mean :)
(28 April 2012 - 07:36 pm) Yes, my mate's wife
(26 April 2012 - 05:09 pm) F3 lets you zoom in
(26 April 2012 - 05:04 pm) Works for me...
(24 April 2012 - 09:02 pm) Ooh, nice latency!
(24 April 2012 - 08:23 pm) That was at 2-0 down - Ramirez nicked one back 45+1 mins and then Torres got one right at the end...
(24 April 2012 - 08:22 pm) Terry for a "rear end" off the ball
(24 April 2012 - 08:21 pm) They well deserve it though - 45 mins with 10 men vs Barca at Barca is some achievement
(24 April 2012 - 08:19 pm) 3-2 on agg
(24 April 2012 - 08:19 pm) 2-2
(24 April 2012 - 08:19 pm) If they win then 4th is no longer a CL place
(24 April 2012 - 08:18 pm) Spurs even
(24 April 2012 - 08:18 pm) Indeed, although as a Sours fan
(24 April 2012 - 08:10 pm) Chelsea Chelsea!! :)
(17 April 2012 - 09:00 pm) And Reading are promoted! 46 points from a possile 51 - can't go much better than that :)
(13 April 2012 - 07:10 pm) I hope so!! :)
(20 February 2012 - 09:54 pm) I'm guessing they don't - then again it is Luton... :)
(16 February 2012 - 07:12 pm) (seriously though, that was more than a bit naughty)...
(16 February 2012 - 07:12 pm) Ooh, nice shot
(16 January 2012 - 07:50 pm) Lucky you didn't knut him again :)
(16 January 2012 - 07:49 pm) heh, class
(16 January 2012 - 07:40 pm) Nice to be at liberty though, eh? :)
(16 January 2012 - 07:30 pm) Ice on the pavement here (reading)
(22 December 2011 - 12:11 am) Well, good luck - that's enough for me for a night :)
(22 December 2011 - 12:09 am) Not worth the hassle
(22 December 2011 - 12:09 am) As a company, we refuse to use any supplier that uses RM or Parcel Force
(22 December 2011 - 12:09 am) Royal mail - buch of spuds.
(22 December 2011 - 12:09 am) Probably, but you'd be within your rights to have him pay the shipping
(22 December 2011 - 12:04 am) Wouldn't be the first time
(22 December 2011 - 12:02 am) If you undercut them selling directly they're not going to take a load of stock off you to sell
(22 December 2011 - 12:02 am) The retail channel
(22 December 2011 - 12:01 am) Well, they'd be daft to stuff the channel
(21 December 2011 - 11:59 pm) Not bad to offer 80 though
(21 December 2011 - 11:57 pm) They'd replace tem with similar I suppose
(21 December 2011 - 11:56 pm) Up late again then?
(21 December 2011 - 11:55 pm) :) fair enough
(21 December 2011 - 11:37 pm) £40.50? I might get some through the channel and punt them out on eBay...
(20 December 2011 - 11:31 pm) Well, I gotta go sleep - have fun...
(20 December 2011 - 11:30 pm) MAkes your PC run like a turd constantly and ignores almost all malware
(20 December 2011 - 11:30 pm) About right
(20 December 2011 - 11:29 pm) hmm
(20 December 2011 - 11:29 pm) :p
(20 December 2011 - 11:27 pm) On W7 the Microsoft Security Essentials is actually pretty good
(20 December 2011 - 11:27 pm) Norton really is crap
(20 December 2011 - 11:27 pm) Heh
(20 December 2011 - 11:26 pm) http://www.scan.co.uk/value-systems
(20 December 2011 - 11:25 pm) http://www.pcworldbusiness.co.uk/
(20 December 2011 - 11:25 pm) Same kit, better prices :)
(20 December 2011 - 11:25 pm) On that note, if you HAVE to use PC World, check out PCWB
(20 December 2011 - 11:24 pm) Either way, better than PC World
(20 December 2011 - 11:24 pm) The pre builts are reasonable value as well if you can't be arsed to put it together
(20 December 2011 - 11:23 pm) Ho hum, just google it and it's the 1st link
(20 December 2011 - 11:22 pm) http://www.scan.co.u...lder-(vent-type)-and-s
(20 December 2011 - 11:22 pm) hmm, hates the link...
(20 December 2011 - 11:22 pm) Probably didn't sell so they added it for owt
(20 December 2011 - 11:21 pm) Useless unless you have an iPhone but it's only £4
(20 December 2011 - 11:21 pm) http://www.scan.co.u...lder-(vent-type)-and-s
(20 December 2011 - 11:20 pm) Just noticed that
(20 December 2011 - 11:19 pm) Or add an SSD for the system abd it'd really fly
(20 December 2011 - 11:17 pm) OK, it's a tad more but that's a nice system
(20 December 2011 - 11:17 pm) http://www.scan.co.u...only/index.aspx
(20 December 2011 - 11:17 pm) Checkout the no brainer here
(20 December 2011 - 11:17 pm) That's what PC World do though
(20 December 2011 - 11:15 pm) Yeah, they were taking the piss
(20 December 2011 - 11:14 pm) That's a pretty crap cpu
(20 December 2011 - 11:13 pm) Has Hyper-V built in
(20 December 2011 - 11:13 pm) If you're running VMs a lot, might be best to wait for Win8
(20 December 2011 - 11:12 pm) Bouncing off the walls though as they're Christmas mad
(20 December 2011 - 11:12 pm) Not until tomorrow
(20 December 2011 - 11:11 pm) Certainly more RAM will help performance as 1GB is a bit pants these days
(20 December 2011 - 11:11 pm) Well, good luck with it
(20 December 2011 - 11:10 pm) :)
(20 December 2011 - 11:10 pm) With luck, the kids will sleep in :)
(20 December 2011 - 11:10 pm) I love the darts and am not at work tomorrow
(20 December 2011 - 11:09 pm) Got it free off a supplier which was a right result
(20 December 2011 - 11:09 pm) Then again my LT runs hot but it's got a CAD video card in it
(20 December 2011 - 11:08 pm) 118 must have had a fan failure
(20 December 2011 - 11:08 pm) Crap - Cullen 2-0 down
(20 December 2011 - 11:07 pm) 118 - lucky it didn't fry the board
(20 December 2011 - 11:07 pm) hotest even
(20 December 2011 - 11:07 pm) It'll be the one which is ottest tho
(20 December 2011 - 11:06 pm) Depends on the board
(20 December 2011 - 11:06 pm) Aircon for you then :)
(20 December 2011 - 11:06 pm) Ouch
(20 December 2011 - 11:06 pm) Sadly I have restricted time for games these days :(
(20 December 2011 - 11:05 pm) mm, that sort of thing is almost always on today only
(20 December 2011 - 11:04 pm) Well a modern Phenom, 4GB DDR3 and a decent video card would be better :)
(20 December 2011 - 11:01 pm) Checkout Today only on www.scan.co.uk as there are often good deals
(20 December 2011 - 11:01 pm) I usually buy bundles
(20 December 2011 - 11:00 pm) :) no probs - darts was getting boring, but I have a few £ on Cullen
(20 December 2011 - 10:59 pm) As it can only address 4GB ram and that includes video
(20 December 2011 - 10:59 pm) Bare in mind that if you're running a 32bit OS (likely) then you'll probably get 3.25 to 3.5GB Max
(20 December 2011 - 10:58 pm) Yeah, sadly it's older and slower but more expensive
(20 December 2011 - 10:58 pm) So it all seems to add up, and DDR2 is very likely for 2006
(20 December 2011 - 10:58 pm) Well, I googled that mobo type and it came up with a PB 1539
(20 December 2011 - 10:57 pm) Belarc often sees 4 slots as the board chip controlling the slots probaby supports 4 slots
(20 December 2011 - 10:56 pm) Plus, if it doesn't work you could always return it
(20 December 2011 - 10:56 pm) It's usually correct
(20 December 2011 - 10:55 pm) Belarc should have listed the RAM type though
(20 December 2011 - 10:55 pm) hmm, PC world strikes again
(20 December 2011 - 10:54 pm) Core i7 IIRC
(20 December 2011 - 10:54 pm) DDR3 is unlikely as it didn't come out until late 2008 though
(20 December 2011 - 10:53 pm) PM'd it to you
(20 December 2011 - 10:53 pm) hmm, it's a bit long
(20 December 2011 - 10:53 pm) http://www.offtek.co...emory-2/packard bell/packard bell-desktop-memory/imedia-mc-1539/mid68734
(20 December 2011 - 10:52 pm) Should say DDR2 Non-ECC
(20 December 2011 - 10:52 pm) As an extra check, just in case that mobo is different you could check the current chips
(20 December 2011 - 10:51 pm) I'd not advise it as it'd not fit
(20 December 2011 - 10:50 pm) Anyhoo, that seems to be DDR2 RAM you need which is about correct for 2006
(20 December 2011 - 10:50 pm) PC world - nice
(20 December 2011 - 10:49 pm) Well every google I did for that mobo gives an MC 1539
(20 December 2011 - 10:48 pm) http://www.offtek.co...emory-2/packard bell/packard bell-desktop-memory/imedia-mc-1539/mid68734
(20 December 2011 - 10:48 pm) If so, that's this ram
(20 December 2011 - 10:47 pm) I have that as an Packard Bell iMedia MC 1539 - ring a bell?
(20 December 2011 - 10:41 pm) Run that and it'll tell you what the board is and te RAM which should be enough info
(20 December 2011 - 10:41 pm) http://www.belarc.co...e_download.html
(20 December 2011 - 10:41 pm) If not, go to belarc.com and download te free system checker
(20 December 2011 - 10:40 pm) Got the model number? It should say on it
(20 December 2011 - 10:39 pm) Is it for a specific system / manufacturer like HP, Dell etc?
(20 December 2011 - 10:38 pm) Actually, inc VAT it's about the same
(20 December 2011 - 10:37 pm) Checkout offtek.co.uk though as it's slightly cheaper in general
(20 December 2011 - 10:37 pm) It's not bad
(19 December 2011 - 08:53 pm) £15k? I bet that looks amazing... ly tacky
(19 December 2011 - 07:59 pm) Anyone watching the darts? How good was that Hamilton game??
(11 December 2011 - 08:52 pm) They were 3/1 on so it was always likely
(12 November 2011 - 11:20 pm) vfc - really modern machines are not emulated, but if you search the downloads you'll find some that are newer - look for the ones which only run on mfme9.4 and above...
(12 November 2011 - 11:01 pm) £4 jackpot, but lots of fun
(12 November 2011 - 11:01 pm) Like FastTrak
(12 November 2011 - 11:01 pm) Me - old machines
(12 November 2011 - 11:00 pm) DOND? No... :)
(12 November 2011 - 10:59 pm) Cheers Todd :)
(12 November 2011 - 10:58 pm) Or if you want a quick Jackpot, Psycho Cash Beast Club...
(12 November 2011 - 10:57 pm) Try Cops and Robbers
(03 November 2011 - 03:09 pm) :) This is great :)
(03 November 2011 - 02:24 pm) :) this is funny
(07 October 2011 - 03:34 pm) I have a 1Gbit connection now :). OK, it's shared with a bunch of our clients but during testing I was a popular peer :)
(23 July 2011 - 04:31 am) Nah, sleep is for wimps :)
(15 July 2011 - 01:54 am) Zzzzz Man it's late!
(06 June 2011 - 06:25 pm) heh, class
(25 March 2011 - 08:52 pm) Working Saturday huh? Me too :(
(25 March 2011 - 08:49 pm) :( yuk.That's veg for ya
(25 March 2011 - 08:46 pm) 1 down - sweetcorn finished?
(25 March 2011 - 08:44 pm) heh
(25 March 2011 - 08:41 pm) me either, but if it were peas I'd go for the sweep
(25 March 2011 - 08:37 pm) n
(25 March 2011 - 08:37 pm) ow wondering if I should have gone up market a bit :)
