I did this a couple of weeks ago. Posted a something intended for the computer games thread in the relationships thread. In my defense, I am no good at relationships but I am fucking phenominal at computer games! So yes there needs to be more than one thread for games.

I mean pretty much all these threads can apply to games. I vote this become a gaming forum.

Even the bowel movement threads appropriate if you're playing COD snarf snarf

Should be a gaming forum. At least three of us are looking at, pricing or currently building PCs. :lol:


I am in the looking for special deals stages of my build. Oh and is it green. This is the problem.


Is it good?
Is it green?

Put together a chicken noodle soup using Quorn. I can't cook whatsoever, and it came out ok. Chuffed.

First payday as a nurse yesterday. :) After living in poverty for so long, I feel rich beyond my wildest dreams. First spend was an enormous flower delivery for Mumsy who's been lending me the kind of money I'll probably never be able to pay back. Now to go out and get wasted - I've bloody earned it.

After tussling for a long old while, new computer runs. It's freakily silent, but the case has got mad airflow so that's expected I guess.

Just waiting for my SSD to come in the post so I can reinstall windows all over again.

I'm gonna hold out until the right moment to buy a new PC. Thing is, I'm a bit scared Cubase 5 won't work on Windows 10, don't wanna have to fork out again if I can help it.

Decided after a quick search on the net not to bother with the train to Glasgow for NOTW. Flights were £30 cheaper, and it takes like a quarter of the time and I thought fuck it why not? Gets me in at 8:20am so if I find myself waiting for people for hours, I am going to take a quick hop over to Edinburgh for a bit of ermahgerd tourist shit, quick pint in the Banshee and head back to Glasgow.

New jeans are so black I could say something edgy about how black they are.

Or "I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour".

WMMHT - Second reply from string of job applications, both the day after applying. I like where this is going.

My quality mates really. Managed to fashion a couple of us to go up the Brum to a gin bar, Christmas market and perhaps a quick one in the Purity pub too. All on short notice (this Saturday). Id pass it off as birthday drinks but I don't celebrate it to any great degree, so ill call it...Saturday.
