    I really want to put a witty comment in here, but I won't. SO I'll do it on IRC.

    Woudnt we all make a big speech about how we're going to change something and make the world (or overclockers uk) a better place!? Saying its one thing doing it is a completely different story, actions speak louder than words. Also why does it take weeks/months to sort the problem, if hes that concerned fix it straight away!
