  1. g'day guys,

    i gotta say, THANKS AGAIN TO ALL THE NETRIDERS who walked over their own mothers to get me a lap top.

    i love it. im always yacking on about my spiffy black lap top. i put a big thank you in the netrider newsletter article i wrote but thats probably not going to be printed. thats a shame because i put all the info you wanted to know about my crash but were to afraid to ask.

    this thing has really changed my crappy life. apart from my addiction to forums, im using it to send my hate male to the government [jest], beating everyone at chess, and i'm using it to get some work done!
    --------------------------------------------
    i don't know why i thought i didn't need one. im on it every day. seriously, this spiffy black lap top and my new netrider friends has made my life a lot less crappier than it was. thanks again.



    before; :roll: :cry: :) :roll: :cry: :)

    after; :grin: :LOL: :grin: :LOL: :grin: :LOL: :grin: :LOL:

  2. Although I caught the back end of the wave and didn't contribute in any way other than spending 4-6hrs reading your thread: -

    "Glad you're happy with it" :grin: haha

    If it starts to get foibles n have problems send me or any of the other PC guys a PM they'll get it fixed up for you straight away. Even if you've just got a question that you may think is stupid fire away.

    I wouldn't make it through night shift if it wasn't for netrider :)

    Damn these stupid quiz shows.

    yahoo.au [ish, make sure its australia nz not usa]
    click on;
    games
    board games
    chess
    then you get heaps of 'room' options. my friends and i always go to 'turtle shell' so we can find each other, if we happen to be online at the same time.

    im exlr8ter [yeah, i think it sucks too]
    --------------


    thats what i meant. i was thanking everyone, even those who didn't sit up at all hours building two lap tops. you all wanted me to have one and were prepared go about it in any way that you could. the thread is a long read and i appreciate everyone who read it and all the friendly posts.

    netrider is a great place. late night game shows do suck!

  10. dante! it wasn't that close! i demand a re-match when i'm sober.

    gator, how could you not access chess! thats awful! please try and get around it as i am there at 3am quite often [i don't mean to sound demanding] but do it! ha ha, im sure theres nothing you can do.

    joel, what do u mean 'next time you're away'? you can challenge any time you have access online.

    im such a biatch! thanks again and again for the spiffy black lap top, as you all can see i am causing lots of grief.

  12. Lol I'm at work atm and there's a proxy server restricting our access (all internet traffic goes through that server first and is then filtered before it gets to us) so if I try to access a site that work doesn't like I get an error message displayed :(

    What I meant earlier was that I get home at 3am so I'd be able to play then :)
    I'll setup an account and have a looksie when I get in this morning if your in there. Mind you I haven't played for about 6 months and was never that crash hot to begin with so no smack talk from me :)
