    you couldnt have put it better

    plus you get paid to be stressed at work, opposed to paying to be stressed at uni, the course quality does not meet the payments per year if you tally them all up, all in all if i could go back 6 years to when i left school, i would have gone for a professional qualification over uni every time. My gf does accoutning this way, she gets paid to go to private college and exam entry paid for and course entry paid for, she gets block release from work to do all of this and on top gets a competitive wage whilst learning relevant industry techniques

    makes me mad tbh
    Yep, I'll be so glad when it's over.

    Well I've just hated the uni way of studying ever sine the beginning. The stress of coursework and especially exams far outweigh the nice parts of uni (social life, independence, etc). It sickens me that I've got to go into so much debt to pay for a course where some modules I took are simply not worth the money... At least when I start working they'll be paying for my course and exams, as well as paying me to work too.
    Hmmm well since I'm in Scotland we don't have tuition fees so I don't have much debt which is pretty nice. But I have to agree with you, uni has definitely not been the best years of my life. It's been stressful and pretty miserable at times.

    What sucks about dentistry is you need to pay for all your own CPD and registration fees. I have forked out £222 for 5 months registration when I haven't even graduated yet.

    Oh you're so lucky not to have any tuition fees! :stomp:

    Well at least with dentistry you're guaranteed to be minted once you qualify! :yep:

    In other news, R* seems to have really outdone themselves with RDR:

    No I don't think there's one planned right at this moment. I don't recall them making on for GTA IV either.

    Ah oops, I was going to correct you because the IGN UK score is 9.7, but the IGN Aus score is 9.8, but then I thought I was being too pedantic. :grin:

    Right I brought the PS3. I got it for £295 with 3 games. I'm going to sell one of the games, so it would work out to about £270.

    I tried to connect my external hard drive, but it said there were no files on it in the video, music, and picture section.
    Do I need to create a specially named folder for the PS3 to recognise it.

    Also, can I connect a phone via bluetooth to the PS3.

    Your HDD has to be formatted in FAT32.
