Evening all, just thought I'd say hello and I'm back!

Yes I know I turned up once in December. The day after that, my computer refused to work, so I was left internet-less during Christmas and the New Year while my uncle took my computer to fix it. But yesterday we bought me a new PC, which I will hopefully take to university with me, and so I'm back online! So what's been happening...

Well I'd best start with the whole university thing. I got five offers, which I'm dead pleased about. I also got rejected by Girton College Cambridge. The letter came on New Year's Eve so at least I had an overall great day, but more on that later. That's an outright rejection, no pool or anything. I was a bit disappointed but more relieved that it's over. Just waiting on Cambridge to make it official so I can go and pick Manchester and King's as my firm and insurance (Manchester want AA and King's want 300 points including A in Maths).

As for my holiday, a mixture of very boring and very fun. Christmas was spent with my extended family, enjoying a nice munch of roast chicken but not the greatest company. A great yawn-fest, though everyone else seemed to enjoy themselves. New Year's on the other hand was great, we went to Westminster to see Big Ben chime 12 (even though it didn't even ring) and the brilliant fireworks display at the London Eye. Many drinks and much fun were had, and for some reason we were doing the "Vieira" chant. The atmosphere carried me away man! Anyway we eventually got back to my mate's house at 2, had a few more drinks and slept. My first New Year's Eve not watching it all on the bloody TV, but by no means my last!

Anyways that's me announcing my return proper, and posting this thread to ask what's been happening while I've been gone. And I'm appalled that I didn't scoop an award!!! Though I see I was nominated for "Biggest Flirt" :cool:... anyways holler back!

Hey! Welcome back!

You back permanently this time? I can't really think of much thats gone on....oh Maskall has turned good (well for now anyway). He posted a long plea and has contributed some normal stuff and hasn't spammed. Oh and Mr White has left. Again!

Not much more than that though really!

Yeah I have to agree with that, unlucky Jewel, they don't know what's best for them clearly. Well done on your other offers though!

Can't really remember, it's a dim and distant memory, let's not let it overshadow Jewel's return anyway

Cheeky!

No, I left because my workload was getting too pressing for me to be doing anything else. I managed to perform a last-minute job on my M1 coursework and apparently scraped an A, damn I am lucky!

My problem was that after logging on nothing happened, the explorer program didn't start up so it was just the desktop. My uncle says some system folder got deleted so he's restoring it.
