    Ok all, I have a favour to ask of ye.

    I probably won't be in Sydney for my birhtday (so there'll be no spurise present from Slavey), and at the moment, my parents and grandparents are getting me a computer from a friend of Reuben's.

    Now, the problem is, they don't want to get a screen. I was wondering *shuffles feet* could we start up a kind of money pool? just about $10 or $15 each would do. This way I'd be able to actually talk to you guys on the net as opposed to actually making phone calls. ;)

    Anyways, that's my plea. please help an impoverished uni student RISE UP AGAINST THE SYSTEM.....or at least help him get a screen. :)

    Slavey's got a 15" monitor he's been trying to give me. I'm sure he'd be happy to pass it on to you instead. :D

    Well that'd save a lot of problems - if you have one compatible with his computer, slavey, it seems as its all solved. :D

    Um, Shara, I think it would be pretty hard to find a monitor and a computer that weren't compatible...

    I mean, maybe if you tried to use an Apple II with a 17" flat screen...

    Please, if I'm wrong, then feel free to point it out.

    That's what I'm talking about. :p

    While most macs don't, I know a few of them have screens seperate to the main tower - I used to have one of 'em, pain that it was. [face_plain]

    Edit: Spelling. :p

    Yeah, I had problems with getting a compatible (and relatively cheap!) monitor for my mac a few years back too. Not too difficult to find out which ones are compatible though.

    So what are we gonna get Sam instead now that he's got the offer of slavey's monitor??

    That is I think slavey offered it... did ya slavey? Or was that everyone else offering for you? :D ;)

    I think he did.


    What to get Sam....it needs to be either Batman, DBZ, or Limas.

    Maybe all three in 1

    Don't the colleges have computer rooms anymore?
    Failing that, what about your uni login? Just stop into one of the rooms while you're up top...

    COOL!
    Thanks a bundle Slavey. I owe you big time. :)

    Kalor, we do have comp rooms, but when you need to do a major assignment, almost all of them are taken...plus we don't have icq or MSN...well, any that work anyways.

    My birthday isn't til May 25th, but seeing as that's mid-term....
    but I should be able to come down for ep II premiere, if I skip my 2 Friday lectures and fly down on the thursday afternoon.

    That's about it. Thanks again. :) see you guys REAL soon (as in, i get in at about 11:30 tomorrow morning)
