Nah.

Not unless they make me a mod. I'd abuse my powers though, so probably best to not bother.

Cheers Owen.
I've now managed to sort it out.

As for the spam, the sheer volume of it now means that if I have a day where I can't snag 10 minutes on a computer, it tends to build up. Just leaving things for half a day (I'm currently in Ely), I have a list of 8 separate spambots. 8, in half a day! Even with both me and Beardy in action every day, there would still be a lot of spam left for a good amount of time every day, and if I'm too busy or am unable to get online, it does mount up. It is going to be like that until webmaster finally pulls his hand out his arse and changes the settings/updates forum software/introduces a different way of signing up. He doesn't appear to like taking any notice of me, Beardy or Lee though.
If it sounds good, listen to it

Interesting Fact: Despite the world [and principally US] going mad over illegal downloading and copyright protection, in 2010 the US alone made $134 billion through selling 'intellectual property' goods to non-US markets :lol:

I've bought a camera to wear on my helmet and went out yesterday to test it. After much arsing around with Avidemux and Windows Movie Maker I finally managed to produce these little clips. :)

So, a certain Swede woke me up this morning in order to make me watch a documentry on plane crashes. A few hours before I flew home.

I think this is revenge on me leaving a "hands off, this is mine!" mark on a boobie...

I returned some clothes I bought the other day which I paid for on card. Does anyone know how long it takes for the money to go back into my account? I'd assumed it would be instant but it doesn't seem to be there...

Ah ok, cool! As long as it's coming back some time it's all good.

Another thing: I just found out I have a download limit here that I wasn't aware of (apparently i've gone over it - oops). Is streaming stuff included in that?

Yeah, everytime you load a webpage that counts as downloading information, pretty much everything you do online involves downloading info, it's not just stuff like torrents.
