Geforce 7600 GS PCI-e graphics card.

My motherboard's on board graphics went phut the other day and I took a chance that it was only the chip that does the graphics and stuck a card in and -obviously- it worked.

I tried to get a Ti spork with it, along with a Trek Ti 700 (all Snow Peak) but the store I went to was out of stock, but there is another bigger outdoors store that has them, so I'll making a voyage down that way later this week.

I've just ordered a mail order bride from Thailand. I hope it's not a LadyBoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This post was meant as a joke by the way. I haven't actually ordered a thai bride. :unsure:

HAHAHA!! Whats the better that that name would be rebranded if it ever came over here? :D

 

Here is my latest: Two books and one of 8 tinnies I brought last night. It was £5 for 8 tins, which is the only excuse I have for drinking the natts ######.

They confuse me greatly. They taste like a cake, but they are sold by a biscuit company. Is this just beyond my comprehension since I'm not a jolly old Englishman?

Cake or biscuit?

 

Under UK law, no VAT is charged on biscuits and cakes — they are "zero rated". Chocolate covered biscuits, however, are classed as luxury items and are subject to VAT at 17.5%. McVitie's classed its Jaffa Cakes as cakes, but in 1991, this was challenged by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise in court.[4] This may have been because Jaffa Cakes are about the same size and shape as some types of biscuit. The question which had to be answered was what criteria should be used to class something as a cake or biscuit. McVitie's defended the classification of Jaffa Cakes as a cake by producing a giant Jaffa Cake to illustrate that their Jaffa Cakes were simply mini cakes.

 

They also argued that the distinction between cakes and biscuits is simply that biscuits go soft when stale, whereas cakes go hard. It was demonstrated that Jaffa Cakes become hard when stale and McVitie's won the case.[5]

It's put into perspective when we pay £12.95 or $26.50 for 12x assorted Krispy Kreme donuts, when I seem to recall 12 KK donuts in the US cost $5.99 or £3 pretty much. Personally I would never spend £1 on a donut, but clearly some people do.

Kinda like how a Galaxy MP5k clone costs about 20 quid in HK, and you guys pay... how much?

 

 

But then again, you get Jaffa Cakes, so it balances out.
