    Completed Final Fantasy XIII! :king1:

    I have to say, I found the last boss(es) a little easy after some of the previous fights - and that's without maxing out the crystarium. One stagger ended the last fight with the five stars need for the trophy... Anyway, I'm still a way off the platinum! :o:
    Yeah the last boss was stupidly easy compared to others. Oh well...

    Finding decent car insurance is impossible...even with Pass Plus :sigh:

    So wanna go out and drive too (without anyone sat next to me) but just gotta keep shopping around atm. Some of my mates got insured for like £1200 but I can't seem to find any for less than £1800....

    Anway on a Ps3 note, I'm backing up mine and it seems like it's going to take 9 hours?! :wtf:

    Yeah it ridiculous...I was fiddling around with it and if I have 1 years no claims the insurance is halved!

    Yeah I'm backing it up cos I can now (got a 1TB external HDD :grin:) and just in case anything happens. It estimated 7 hours to backup even though there's only about 120gb to backup.

    Perverse as it may seem, if you're looking for insurance in your own name (so you can build up an NCB), try adding your parents as named drivers on the policy. Doing so brought the premium down for me, despite it actually giving more coverage!

    Related - my car passed its MoT without any major work needed (though, I have just had my windscreen replaced) - that's one less expense to worry about for a year :rolleyes:

    I really ought to back mine up some time soon :o:

    Welcome to :tsr:

    What actually happened? Like, what were you doing before that happened? :holmes: And what's happened now? Does the PS3 recognise the hard drive at all? Does the XMB get loaded at all?

    I may have to try that, I think I'll actually try anything to get a decent quote for my car insurance!

    :yy: On the MoT btw.

    I've set the Ps3 to start backing up again cos there was no way I was gonna leave it backing up through the day...waste of Ps3 time!! Now I can sleep while it backs up...hopefully when I wake up they'll both be alive!
