    That'll take you a while i reckon. I imagine you're reaction at the time was something along the lines of :blush:

    You're friends reactions were probably :jawdrop:

    You're lucky a mod hasn't --rep'd you just because.

    In other news i'm pretty chuffed because my tuition fees for the year have been paid by the British Foreign Office and the EU Commission.

    As my parents put it, i could fall into a slurry pit and still come up smelling of roses.

    Despite my PC going to set me back a crapton to replace; I still have my phone. I'm really liking Android and Gingerbread. Can't wait for that ICS upgrade, however.

    At least everything else seems to be intact, so I still have SSD, Bulldozer, Drives, GPUs, Sound Card, Power Supply & Memory.

    Shame a replacement Mobo is going to set me back at least £120.

    Finding out my Acer Aspire 722 with the brazos C-60 APU actually runs mass effect 3 at 1366x768 native resolution and does a reasonable job of it, not bad for a £280 toy (in fact it beats my old but sold onto a friend £1000 dell inspiron 6400 with an ati radeon mobility x1400 by a mile!)

    Progress is an amazing thing - might even try a fraps run later to see what the fps is like but main parts of game are smooth and action only stutters briefly at points during combat, have since bunged all catalyst/vision settings to performance rather than quality and will have another run later :jawdrop:

    Really good weather lately!

    One week of college left (i think...) would be brilliant if i did'nt have insanely hard exams and assignments coming up.

    Must keep on top of it

    I just moved house and rang Virgin to move the services over. Was told they'd have to cancel my contract at the old house. Fair enough, asked if I could remove the phone line from my bill as I don't use it. Response was "Well what I can do is knock your phone line off and, as you know, we're upgrading everyone's speeds. So rather than wait for it to happen I can upgrade you from 10Mb to 30Mb for £22.50 a month". Which is pretty sweet, but then factor in I was paying £28 before with 1/3{param} the broadband speed :thumb::D

    ^Let's have a look :D

    I just got accepted for a job interview at my local Sainsbury's ( 5th April ); it's only for 12 hours a week, meaning I'd be working 14.5 in total each week which is kinda pants. However thanks to
    all the money I'll be sponging off of hard working tax payers
    the benefits I will also receive to top up my earnings, + my new(ish) found economising skills, I'll be nearly as well off money-wise as I would be working full time.

    Hopefully I'll get it...

    Sweet, I've always been blown away at the skill displayed in digital art- just as much & more so than is required of a traditional artist in any given media. The one thing I wish I had is the undo button, something I really wish I could use on watercolours ( one slip of the brush and it's game over quite often ). :D

    Nice big brunch tomorrow and a set of HD25's on their way to me. More than makes up for the raging heat thats coming in now! Summer is most definately on the way.

    All the sunny weather and the fact that I've stayed true to my New Years Resolution of running 8km twice a week, every week.

    Oh and my modding project finally coming together.

    Knowing that I left college today with a subsidiary diploma in my back pocket, so to speak. That, and knowing that these next two weeks (half term), I can drink, sleep, party and redecorate my room. So stoked at the minute :)
