    Films can't capture the magic I have in my life.

    Sure, I've been through hell, like the time I got arrested for a crime I didn’t commit and got sent to prison. The warden was a right pain in the arse, even when I used my skills to make the guy a nice bit of (illegal) cash. But because of the good money flow he refused to help me a few years down the line when a fellow prisoner has evidence of my innocence. After losing all chance of freedom, I eventually escaped through a tunnel I spent nearly 20 odd years making. Once I got on the other side I leaked the warden’s story to the press and took all his of earnings to start a new life. Soon after, my best pal from my time behind the bars was released and we now live happy and most importantly, free.


    Oh, hang on.
    Hah, I got about halfway through that before I suddenly thought "this seems familiar". :p:

    My first thought was "no" but real life is probably better, just much slower so you don't realise it at the time. It's not wrapped up nicely in 2 hours, and sometimes it doesn't fulfil all your expectations, so if life was a film, it'd be one you wouldnt watch again.

    People get a kick of trying to make every aspect of their romantic lives just like a film or a song they heard, but things are far much more complex than that.
    If you try to make your life like a film, or use fiction as a yard stick for happiness you'll never be fulfilled.

    hahahaha, highly doubt it, as in a movie you usually end up with the person ur meant to be - no matter what crap he/you did, he has a gf or whatever ...
    or, of course, he dies to make it more tragic.

    yet, in real life its muuuch more fun imo, of course, there can be a guy whos perfect for you and you fall for him but it never works out, yet you can also just have FUN nd dont need this permanent obsession with love and "the one"

    It wasn't THAT much. I built the bulk of this pc like a year ago and have just been swapping parts when I have been able to get them cheap

    You are quite right not to build one at the moment. 1156 chipset has been released and will be released in the UK. Will provide great bang for buck.

    If you ever need a hookup or cheaper parts, give me a bell and i'll see if I can find something for you.

    Best time to have sold the stuff xD

    Price performance ratio, you cannot do better than a Q9450/Q9550. I picked up on dirt cheap, and unless you are doing enormous media encoding you will not see any improvements.
