I'll see what I can do.
I'd like to go to both really. Especially as I missed Tokyo Blade at Wacken and Dark Forest last week. Just not good enough, I'm disappointed in myself

It's just downright unpatriotic in my book :P

When I was 12 I went to London for a couple of days with a school trip.

I distinctly remember going to a fucking awesome place called SegaWorld. Whatever happened to it?

Me, Myles & Bum stumbled in there a couple of weeks ago by accident I think. It's now like a shopping centre, entertainment arcade thing

Shame, it was amazing as SegaWorld. It was just like that 'club' thing in Hackers, but a lot bigger.

The Trocadero used to have a sort of laserquest with aliens thing that I always wanted to try. Long since gone. :(
There is a anime/manga type shop- if you're into that sort of thing -but the prices made me wince.

Anyone know anything about registry cleaners?
I need to rescue my PC, it's running slower than ever, and I have fuck all programs installed and everything else that takes up space is on my external. I read something about registry cleaners and how they can help?

Spybot Search & Destroy is pretty good for cleaning up cookies, also patching security settings which put your web browser at risk.

Use Disk Cleanup (right click C: in My Computer, click Properties, should see the option there) to clean up temporary files, system backup files, etc.

run msconfig.exe from Start->Run, go to the Startup tab and uncheck programs you don't recognise.

Also go into Programs and Features / Add/Remove Programs and delete stuff you don't use any more or have no need for.

The guy on Man V Monster is so bad ass, he fell over and then nearly cut his finger off on his machete put a bandage on it and then just kept going and then he taped a camera on to the head of a Komodo Dragon.

I've done most of this stuff, and it seems to make no difference really. It may just be time to buy a new computer, I've had this one for about 10 years now. Thanks though :)

Forest Gump was a good film, I'm glad she liked it.
