Take a wireless conection and see if you can piggy back on someone else's broadband and a laptop is a very handy backup you know.

Why do they rename film's!!! :tantrum:

Got myself "The Zombie Pack" over 4 Hrs of flesh ripping mayhem and gore and two of the three film's i have but with different name's.  :tantrum:

It's bad enough when you can only get a film you want in a pack with othere's you have or don't want but changing the name is a paint in the bollic@#!!  :tantrum:

I want to collect the Zatoichi film's and there are 25 of them and upwards of 100 TV episodes and some of the Zatoichi film's that i have, have been released under more than one title.  :tantrum:

Zombie Flesh eater 2 "The Hand Returns!" is also called Zombi 3.
Zombie Flesh eater 3 "The Dead Rise Again!" is also called Zombie 4 "After Death".

Righto, RANT MODE!!!

My job is really pissing me off at the moment, I take in deliveries for a well known UK high st shop, advertised by a sheep dog and sheep not saying any names, and one of the depots they come from is closing, now that's a problem cause all my deliveries are being shunted from one depot to another, to another before getting to me, usually short of stock.

Plus they are splitting the deliveries so I have to work my daily hours arund them,whci I understood when I took the job a few years back. One day I may start at 7.00, and the next it could be 14.00, and finish late, to then be in at 7.00 the next morning.

Generally I get a delivery estimate the day before it's due, telling whats coming and at roughly what time, but this has all gone to pot and I now have to ring to see what time and so on.

WEll this is the reason for the rant, I rang yesterday, and was told that the one and only delivery I was getting wasn't coming until 16.22, so my hours were changed to suit, with me starting at 13.00 and working late, I have just had a phone call from work and theres another delivery sitting waiting for me now (9.30), an overflow missing from last week.
What's pissed me off is there are folks there that can take it in, but they want me to walk for half an hour to work, pull the delivery in (which can take upto an hour), then walk half an hour home again to them walk half an hour back to work an hour later, and I've said no, much to thier disgust.
My hours were changed to suit the later delivery, by the boss, who is on her day off today, so the underling who thinks she's a mini me boss, doesn't want to dirty her hands bringing in the delivery, she's even asked the driver to wait for me to walk down.

I also have to sort the deliveries once I have them in, so basically I have said that if I come in now, and take this one in, which I will have to sort once I start at 13.00, then I will only be able to pull the other on in when it comes, and not sort it too, which as usual there's no one to cover me for that either.

Talk about taking the piss!

Sounds like my place, all you hear is "it's not my job" instead of working together and getting it done.  :tantrum:

Why can't someone bring it in and you can then sort it out later when your in.  :shrug:

There's no I in team when it's other people but when it's you there is.  >:(

I help the other member's of staff every day but never get any help myself, the offer would be nice but once there stuff is done they bugger off without a thought of me.  :icon_evil:

My house is too bloody hot to do artwork in my room.  The rest of the house is fine but my PC-with its pimpin case-  turns out so much heat that my room becomes intollerable.  Its brutal.  I doubt I can survive without my PC.  3ds Max, Adobe PS CS2, DoW and World of Warcraft have so long been a part of my evenings that im just now discovering some show called "Sopranos"


  I want back into my bloody room :(  :blob6:

Get an air conditioner, i did near the end of last summer as the fan was just moving hot air about.
Mine has an evaporator and ioniser, you fill it with water and drop in an ice pack to cool it down.
It's on wheels so i can put it where i want, well worth the £50 i spent.

We actually have central air :)


Problem is where my room is -not enough air flow.  I think your type of AC might work anyways

In a case like that it may be best to add a window ac to address the heat. Is there an option for upgrading the fan in the pc to keep it cool?
