    Sorry, but how often do you get to embed a song about a #79 bus and not be completely irrelevant?

    Hah, proper hard core geeks like those on bit-tech may be few and far between my friend, but they congregate and move around in groups! :p A lot of my closest friends are what you lovingly refer to as geeks (as am I, just to clarify). Rather fantastically, they're also all extremely cool, fun loving guys and girls! :)

    It's awesome that you saw a fellow subscriber sporting his awesome special sub issue of CPC on the bus :thumb:

    I made a few good freinds from the forums, most of my mate just about know how send and email and find porn so it's just not worth talking to them about the modding scene..

    Lol My mate always refers to CPC as PC porn.

    You should do what I do and put it in a copy of nuts. Doesn't even get a second glance that way.

    I have even seen someone reading daily sport (softcore newspaper :naughty:) and opposite sat 3 attractive women and they didnt find it at all distubing :wallbash:

    Theres still the general view that anyone into computers and electronics etc is the sterotypical nerd, this really gets on my nerves tbh.

    The looks some people give me if I read CPC, pcgamer or white dwarf on the bus / on my tea break in work lol

    Yet as other people have said they dont bat an eye at people reading zoo or nuts etc
