    Playing my XBOX for more hours in a 2 day period over Christmas than I have since the start of this year. They updated the whole dashboard which has added some nice functionality that wasn't there before, plus I am finally getting to play the latest Halo games which I've wanted to do for ages. No other game series gives me so much satisfaction! Pure fanboyism :D

    Also, Halo:CE Anniversary is ASESOME! :)

    Glad to see you're taking that light heartedly. I, however, say; ban that, NAO.

    Got an Iphone 3GS as an early gift. No complaints here. :)

    Shoes too. Honestly happy. I'm alive and knowing that I damned well could be dead right now erases any pretense for me to feel as if I didn't get what I want. After all, I'm not entitled to anything.

    A guy I did a lot of work for leading up to Christmas just dropped by and gave me a card with a very generous Christmas/New Year bonus in it. People... they're really not all bad! :D

    Seriously though, the guy is an absolute gent. If all the people I worked for were as nice as him, life would be much simpler! :)

    The Reverb I ordered came today (awesome enough really), I was expecting the 2011 model in the stock black/silver colour scheme, opened it up to find a 2012 version with the improved hose fittings in the stealth black/black colour way. SHWING!

    Will be busy on the right hand side of the bar if I mounted it like this (run 1x9 so only a RH shifter), fortunately mounting it upside-down on the other side of the bar not only makes it easier to use, but also shields the remote from damage better.

    Seeing Manchester City lose to Sunderland. I support neither of these teams, but being a Spurs fan - this is gooooooooood.

    I slept from 3 AM to 4:30 PM on the first day of the year. Now if I can get the necessary 15 hours of work done that is required tomorrow... Good start! :thumb:

    A very nice combo I have myself. Have you tried the foam mod? It makes the headphones a lot more comfortable, and don't be scared to tweak with the equaliser for the xonar DX. Having a proper equaliser makes a huge difference.

    Had a productive few days (house-work-wise) before going back to work tomorrow (early starts aside, I'm looking forward to being back).

    Plus yesterday we had an estimated gas bill (i.e. not based on a meter reading, but on previous usage & seasonal factors etc) through the mail of £170.00 owed. So I took a meter reading, given the accurate one online, and it's only £25 owed. (Which isn't bad considering it's winter and it'll be warmer soon, plus gas prices went up but our DDs stayed the same). Love when that happens.

    Not sure why they overestimated by £145 though..

    Because they hoped you'd pay it without question.

    I remember playing this when I was half my height. Decided to search for the CD, I failed. A day later I decided to search for it again, I succeeded.

    I'm alive, I have no diseases, cancers, infections not even a cold.

    With kids dying of terminal cancer, you don't need the latest piece of plastic crap to make your life awesome, it just is.
