Talking You know when you have constant bad luck and WHAM, you feel like the luckiest guy?

I've had a pretty bad couple of months. First my laptop breaks, which means I cannot do any college homework. Then I get in loads of trouble for not doing my homework. Then the insurance company say they will not fix my laptop. Then I try to build my own but haven't got enough money. Man, I thought my life was going down the shitter...

And then!

My dad is a taxi driver and got talking to this guy. Turns out this guy works for a large computer component distributer and gave my dad his phone number and said he could buy anything and would get a huge discount!

This means I can get things at the prices the stores get them in at!

I can get microsoft laser mice for 15p and keyboards for 75p

I'm going to ring him tomorrow and find out how much their processors and graphic cards are...

That's cool. Build your own system. Then you can do your homework AND game! Although I don't advise that you try to do both.

Wow!

Actually...Sort of on the topic...Whenever you look for something that you need, you cant find it, but when you arn't looking, its in the most obious place.
