    Stumped up £35 for Division 2 just two days ago.

    Mate PMs me on Facebook tonight "do you know any one looking for Division 2? I got one for sale.... £20"

    GRRR

    Paperless office, innit.

    At a guess, though, it's probably had around 2,500-3,000 sheets through it. Not bad, considering it cost me £100 complete with two full sets of refilled toners (and I only hope I can find the other, two office moves later...)

    When we went paperless at the end of 2016 our printer use almost doubled and never went back down again, someday... someday.

    Paperless office is great, but sometimes when you're checking a report you just can't beat working with a paper copy.

    We're "paperless" which I appreciate but sometimes you ned to print it all out, put it on a desk and stare at it!

    Mass shootings in two Mosques by right wing terrorists in Christchurch, NZ.

    I mean FFS, they even live streamed some of it and planted IEDs over the city.

    Days like these make me think we're not all the same species, I cannot comprehend that level of anger and hatred.

    Whoops. Isn't that one of the 'expansion ports' that's meant for a fan controller? 's what I've got in mine on a Define Mini - the bundled one that just has a little knob (fnarr-fnarr) sticking out the back.

    Yeh I think it's meant to hold a radial fan contraption for either exhausting more air from around the gpu's, or blowing it directly on them. My mate Stan sorted it now though.

    Stan really doesn't get enough love. Always there when you need him.

    Laura's pregnant and if it's a boy I really want Stanley for the name. Solid, reliable Stan.

    She's not keen on it though :blah:

    Huge Congrats to you both @ElThomsono!
    This your first??
    Names....tricky territory. You may be on shaky ground, particularly as Laura will have done 'all the work' so to speak.
    We had a name lined up for our first, and when he was born he didn't look right for the name, so a rapid rethink.
    Hard work particularly as the 'management' said that she didn't want him to have a name of anyone we know... Niall is now 18 and driving- blimey where did the time go?
    Maybe a celebratory beer in Bournemouth some time?

    Haha, cheers mate! Yeah, our first; my Mum tells a similar story with my name but that was back in the day when the father stayed at home (I'm 32 but it seems that was right around the generation that shifted?)

    Yeah I'd be up for a beer, I'm in Winton now, in six months we've gotten married, moved house, bought a dog and now this :lol:

    Sounds like us 21 years ago, finished our degrees, sold 2 flats bought a house in Southbourne, (still here), and got marries 10 days after moving in.
    Not sure where's good in Winton these days. My friend in Winton used to meet at the Goat & Tricycle on Poole Hill for a good pint...

    Next time I am down that way we'll have to have a threesome :D

    I visit Milford On Sea at least once a year. Usually twice, but this year I've had to hold off because of the move.

    My local gym has a Super Stan the man, he's in his 80s, on his second pacemaker and runs marathons in under 4 hours.
