    Hmm, good point

    Speaking of controller doesn't steam big picture mode have a web browser which you can use the controller to type with?

    Also there are apps that let you use your smart phone as a mouse.

    Its weird how I didn't think of any of this until wolfticket mentioned controllers

    Wolfticket's comment must have activated your right hemisphere and you got creative!

    I do not have an Xbox controller, but I do have a Cyborg Fly 5!

    Thanks for the addon, will try! My Lakon 6 upgrades and Pagan Min will have to wait...

    Seem it's reciprocal. Reminded me that I've used an app call "Unified Remote" on Android that (with a small app running the PC) turns the phone into a decent enough touchpad and lets you use the phone for keyboard input too.

    The reason I ask about the controller is that I was messing around with an app a while ago that use an Xbox controller for general mouse input. Worked okay, a bit awkward but maybe not as bad as it sounds.

    Well the app you suggested is excellent thank you. Basically puts numbered shortcuts on all links which you quickly tap while holding alt. Its actually quicker!

    Is there any good reason Parcel Force can't have properly useful tracking like DPD so you don't end up spending a day feeling like you're under house arrest for fear of missing the door bell?

    I have 2 choices and I cant decide what to do......

    1. Continue with Kenpo Karate. 30 minute drive away and costs £40 per month.

    2. Join the Gym @ £28 per month. 2 minute walk away.

    Im the only Blue belt in the club so I tend to just be on my own so I cant get any decent practice in. The other guys I started with have all dropped out. Also Kenpo has never helped with the weight loss.

    A guy I work with wants a Gym buddy and it is just walking distance at the bottom of my road.

    Sounds like you've already made your mind up, to me.

    Personally, I'd go with option 2... but I don't drive so it'd be an easier choice for me.
    I always find working out to go much better when you have someone to socialise with.

    Perhaps if you go down that route, you could get talking with your colleague about Kenpo as it might turn out to be something they'd be interested in trying after they get into exercising.

    Finally came just now :rolleyes:

    Was packed with a single layer of cardboard between the top of the CPU and the outside word. They're pretty hardy things these days though, right? :worried:

    I had a 775 quad delivered a couple of months ago with a big chunk missing off one of the corners where the Royal Mail seemed to have used an industrial shredder to sort the mail that day.

    Still worked though :)
