    I hate waiting for parcels!

    They never come when you want and I spent the whole morning waiting the yesterday (well, I was doing other things, but I wasnt out of earshot of the door) and then I check the mail on the way to work and find a "oops, we missed you" card in the mailbox!

    SLACKERS! They didnt even attempt to knock on the door. :mad:

    that always happens to me too!

    And I find them at 8.00 in the morning when I was up and about!

    Unless they never actually knock- they just drop off the slip.

    Perhaps they don't even bring the parcel with them!

    They only leave the amazon.com parcel at the door. I had to pick up my Superman tag at DHF or whatever it is....

    I used to have a magazine subscription, but after it was evidently clear that after 3 months the postie couldnt recognize that folding the magazine in the postbox, then ripping the evelope and cover (sometimes 2-3 pages) of the magazine in the 'gung-ho' approach to delivery as he squeezed it through the slot.

    I gave up and unsubscribed.. as the alternative was walk 600m to the newsagents for a magazine that cost (overall) $20-25 more a year but I could pickup un-damaged. I thought it was probably less frustrating.

    I ordered a copy of Shadow warrior the other day (woot! new expansion free for download online, but required full game.. lol), I am not looking forward to see which post office it gets sent to (Im in the middle of 2 zones, which post office it goes to is pot luck) and what condition its in when it gets here..

    few more bitch's since I like it so much

    I recently got my new mp4 player.. =P~, man its nice, fan-frigging-tastic.. but as usual the packaged headphones absolutely blow..

    So I go off in search of some nice earbud headphones for travel (refuse to wear enclosed out and about, or you look like something from a early doctor who episode called cybermen).. anyhoo, where to go?. JB's! I thought, hurrah, they're gods of all things audio, they'd have some nice quality ones there..

    Surely sure they did.. however, not earbuds, but sort of barrel ones that go into the actual ear. They were Sony, checked the stats, very nice audio range on them.. neat.. I thought.. They must be cool, and for 75 big ones, they'd wanna be!

    Bought them, tried them out and they are dis-gus-ting.. lacks all sense of bass, put any extra bass (onboard equalizer) through them and they distort, the sound is unclear, all in all, awful. Because they go directly into the ear, they magnify your normal body noises. Eg: its like putting in ear plugs, coughing, sneezing, talking, breathing, heck probably blinking all sound magnified..

    'So' I say, again, back to JB's I go, " 'cause these are rubbish!"..

    "Oh I'm sorry, its unhygenic to return headphones, because of that we cannot refund them unless they're faulty"

    :mad:

    What a jip..

    so, er, anyone want to buy some headphones?

    LD and some of the other originals went off and got a life...whatever that may be. I had one before and it was over rated. Actually kinda makes me laugh when people say they are going offline to get a life, like you really are unplugging from the matrix or something and what you do after you've left echos for an eternity.

    I wanted to bitch about how short of a lifespan hard drives have these days. I have one thats just about to let go and I'm more than fragantly annoyed about it. I had a system about three years ago that had a HDD from a previous system and it went forever. These SATA's (oops sorry fake sata's cause only SATA II is a true SATA drive) don't last half as long, I have had friends drives die on them and losing valuable stuff, and now this drive threatens to wipe out my Mini Moni and Morning Musume stuff??!?!

    /me raises a fist to sky towards the Seagate SATA gods "You all suck!!"

    I'd like to bitch that Sizzler no longer has cabonara sauce for the pasta, only bolangiase (yuck) and that coffee is not included in the drinks bar.

    I want to bitch about the crappy new computer system we've had inflicted on us at work earlier this year. The new email system stinks. Half the applications we need took months to get installed. Network drives have all been rearranged and some things have been lost. All sorts of stability issues. If it wasn't government owned and if the system was done by a contractor they'd never get another contract with such cruddy work.
    One of the most annoying things is the overzealous web filtering. Unlike the old system we have no control over what's filtered and no way of bypassing the filtering if we have good reason to do so. For example, I can't open this page at work because presumably there's a naughty word in it somewhere. Sometimes I'm at a complete loss as to why certain pages are blocked when I check the address later at home.

    Well, I knew LD ages ago, and have met soniel and few others at a meet that was hosted ages ago at Soniels place. Theres only a few people here on the boards now from when I was circulating 3or4 years ago. I took a lengthy hiatus for a while when my grandfather was diagnosed and then passed away shortly there after from cancer. I went underground for ages, dealing with the loss, and have only just resurfaced not long ago.

    Used to have a lot of meets at my place in the early days didn't we. A bit too far for people to come now though. And we've got a much nicer place too. :(
