I got a lovely book and a lovely meal and hugs and kisses. Perfect.




Then for myself I bought a GTX690 which I already put in my computer over a month ago. XD

my HD DVD player which I foresee will be a nightmare to get repaired







*muffled laughter* MFFfFFfFFFFhhnnnFFFFMMMmmffff *controls self*

Two words: Safe Disposal. (Recycling)


Seriously though, don't bother. Get a media streamer / media player instead and hook it up to your network or HDD or NAS. An Apple TV if you are so inclined and want to buy titles direct through iTunes.


As a Christmas present (if you want it) I will happily point you in the direction of good media players and the whole wonderful world of functional and brilliant and cheap tech and how to set it up, that any movie fan could ever dream of. I have had to buy then return and test a lot of them for work, especially recently. I bought my first media player 2 years ago and I am NEVER going back. At home we have used the Blu-Ray player about 3 times in the last two years.


Season's Laughter!


Merry Christmas One and All!

I got some $8 headphones at harvey norman. Not actually bad. Also got a $99 fridge. The 2degrees silver for $48. Which is annoying as they had a free $50 topup with any phones for more than $49. And a sodastream for $77.

There was 30% off logitech computer accessories but the ultimate ears I got didn't seem to get a reduction.

its in the garage cooling down sone 7up. got cold on the plate inside.

retarded sizing means 3 layers of cans not possible. would think they would design shelf spacing to suit drinks given it is a BAR fridge.

Possibily imported specially for the sale, so may not be to NZ standard sizing.
