    I bought a Wacom Bamboo Pad off someone on the marketplace, to have a go at drawing.

    Soon realized I was barking up the wrong (very wrong) tree...

    I've been doing graffiti on and off since I was 14, so we'll see.

    I'd hate to think what it would be if I wasn't locked in at the lowest possible price for being a loyal customer.

    So it seems what happened... I initially purchased in Mexican pesos, because it allowed me to pick the currency at checkout and it was half the price if paying in pesos.

    Now the renewal comes along, the value is correct, the currency clearly is not. Cancelled anyway since I've not been using it recently. Also because I'm not sure from the whether it would correctly charge me ~£30, or actually £850.

    Far Cry New Dawn.

    Was £37.99 pre order, but I had more than enough coins to get a 20% discount so it cost me thirty quid. Very excited about it, it should poo on FO76.

    You kids and your money saving!

    Tbh, I've not been using mwb either recently. I'd cancel, but a lifetime license is kind of hard to cancel.

    I've done that on Steam with Roubles, because £20 worth of Roubles is apparently enough to buy ALL THE GAMES.

    The only time it backfired was buying the region locked version of Human Revolution.

    Just took the plunge on a Note 8 contract at £32/mo. I've spent far too much time over the past few weeks weighing up all the pros and cons of various handset deals, and in my efforts to save money I ended up buying a phone I didn't really want (S8+)... so, I'm righting that wrong by buying a handset that will do just nicely. Looked at the Note 9 and see absolutely no reason to consider it over its predecessor.

    I also have trouble drawing recognisable stick figures. Everything comes out looking like that "Googly Eyes" game ad on TV.

    I mean, there is a real disconnect between drawing on a tablet and seeing it on screen vs seeing it appear where your pen just was (Say, on a Cintiq/Surface/iPad/whatever).

    Takes some getting used to.

    Am I the only one who thought it was a trailer for Rage 2 for quite some time when watching the trailer for FCND? Looks a lot like Rage 2, in atmosphere, style and with all the pink and post-nuclear theme.

    Seems like a good way to pack £1300 of HDDs...

    Those airbags haphazardly strewn on top of the loose boxes are a nice touch. It's the thought that counts, right?

    I'd be emailing that picture. I mean I think that would annoy me more than no packaging, if you're going to put some in actually do a proper job of it.

    I'd have been sacked for that in my old job...
    I used to sell high end pro camera kit, and packed parcels when it was madly busy or for illness cover.
    I was taught that you need at least 5cm of foam chips or bubble wrap round the outside and the package should be under tension when you shut the lid of the box.
    Hope your 36 Teras are OK
