    ..Is that per case as the quantity thing suggests, or is it per bottle as common sense and the picture suggests?

    Either way, free booze is hard to turn your nose up at!

    The order total is two bottles of whisky, two bottles of rum, twelve bottles of white wine, and 24 bottles of beer. About £200 of booze, all told.

    Like I said, free booze is nothing to turn away! Just wondered just how jolly of a Christmas you were going to have with the alcohol-fuelled memory loss.

    You need alcohol to forget things? Forgetting is cheaper in my world.

    Need?

    Not at all. It certainly seems to promote the forgetfulness though.

    For after my sex change op in January.

    Nah, not really. Decided to get it as a extra present for my mother who has been dropping hints for ages.

    I also crumbled and paid UK prices in the Origin sale after MDD was not able to gift me them (crafty buggers). I bought SW BF II, BOP Remastered and BFV. I want to see the graphics in the latter. Screw RTX it seems to look amazing regardless.

    I have caved and bought BFV as well, VT! Maybe we can have some game time soon! :D

    I also got myself a couple of coolers as they were $9.99 each and I think they will look fantastic on a display shelf next to my other GPUs. :D

    It arrived today - bar the wine which is coming tomorrow, I'm told - and I'm well chuffed. Although apparently the 'case' of beer is 20 bottles, not 24 - and to be fair, having zoomed in on the image and counted the four-pixel-wide bottle tops, that's what the picture shows. (The description just says "case.")

    This came up for £30 yesterday.

    [​IMG]

    Always wanted one, but not at £200+. Only one issue, it's PCI. Not a problem.. I have one of these in my drawer that I bought years ago for about £30.

    [​IMG]

    It works perfectly, but the card I was trying to get working at the time did not in anything past XP. So I threw the card away and kept the slot. It works like this.

    Like I say, the device itself worked perfectly but you know what old SB are like in anything beyond Win XP. Nightmare. Asus on the other hand seem to have sorted their drivers, so it should work OK.

    no idea, ever since i bought speakers i haven't paid attention to anything headphone related, but after doing some research it seems not much has changed, AKG is still the king for gaming headphones.

    No but, their parent company, Harman Kardon, has been swallowed up by Samsung.

    I'm not sure what or how it happened but I've ended up with a switch, Pokémon let's go, and stardew valley.

    With doom on the horizon.
