    Well at least didn't sleep through tonight... unless you're sleeping as I type this post.

    3 mins presentation tomorrow on BCS code of conduct/code of good practice... we do this in the same groups as for the IT group project, 2 people from my group voluntarily chose to speak tomorrow, so I don't have to prepare anything. We decided that 3mins wouldn't be enough time to split between the 4 of us, so 2 people can just talk. **** yeah. :yeah:
    You should've drawn a **** yeah comic

    So many missed opportunities in this thread :no:

    Edit: Having a "**** yea" comic about OCD is like dividing by zero.

    aye, a Canon 40D with accessories

    the original auction winner was in america, so the seller gave me a second chance offer of £640

    i asked would they accept £620, and they agreed.
    the problem is, the 2nd chance offer is fixed, and you can no longer request to change the total in the paypal checkout.
    so either im going to have to request £20 from him, or he will have to send me £20 (through paypal of course, but it is not linked to the ebay sale)

    ATX = Full size motherboard.

    microATX = smaller size motherboard.

    Edit:
    The RMA is (part of?) Corsair's warranty process to get things replaced/fixed.

    i currently hate paypal.
    there was money in the paypal account, but it wasnt enough to cover the whole purchase.

    so instead of taking all the money out of paypal, then the remainder out of the bank, they decided to try and take all of it out of the bank.
    and now i think the bank has refused this large sum magically disappearing :mad:

    To build a smaller/more compact PC, but mATX motherboards tend to have less features and less upgradeable options in future.

    Building a computing is like lego, simples. :yes:

    I currently have 2GB DDR2 800MHz Corsair RAM and an AMD Phenom II x4 @ 3Ghz. :coma: And an ATi Radeon x1950, the only component that has been in my PC since day 1. :facepalm2: I hate it, it's a bit loud.
