  1. System Specs: Intel Core i5-4690k 16GB RAM ASUS Strix GTX 980 Score : 8.3
  2. I'd imagine it'd come via courier at that price - so I'd expect about a week in a populated part of the UK, otherwise 1.5-2 weeks for more rural parts of the UK, like the Highlands & Islands etc. I don't actually have any experience with Valve's shipping so this is just an estimate.
  3. The G602 is using 500Hz I believe, at least that's what is says on the receiver! I like the G602, it's a comfortable mouse with plenty of Macro Keys and is just generally a pleasure to use. That is except when it does lag out... It only happens twice in a ~8 hour day but is rather annoying. It's fine and you live to bear with it - it's not too bad, only a few seconds. I am a little bias towards this though as I prefer wireless over wired but I've also heard nothing but good things about the G502. If you need any more information, please ask - I own the G602 mouse
  4. Udacity.com is actually quite good, you can get access to all their paid nanodegree courses for free if you don't want the extra help from a proper professional, I get the free materials and the videos are really good - albeit very lacking when it comes to topics like C, C++ etc, but has really good courses on JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Java (for Android), Objective C or Swift (I can't remember which).
  5. Microsoft's support is pretty good, they are always happy to help me with what ever problems I've had and TP-Links support is good aswell - although they didn't fix my problem, they were happy to call in an engineer (to their office to use text-chat) and they also had follow up emails to make sure that my problem was sorted
  6. I stream my music via Google Play Music (for the Introductory offer of £7.99/m), but when I get the chance to, I do buy the music I stream too, as a backup - in case my internet decides to die randomly type deal - but also to support the artists that I love. I've ended up with like 3 copies of some songs that I own this way...
  7. Yeah, sorry wasn't being the clearest with that. I just want to know if by playing video games or by wanting to play video games helped you to understand computers better, whether it be hardware, software of anything in between.
  8. Hi! I'm doing an essay in English about how Video Games are better for us that most people seem to think and I wanted to use the point: Video Games have helped me, and many others develop their understanding of computers. And I wanted to make sure that it was actually true, so that's why I'm posting here. It's a poll to ask you guys, Have Video Games helped you better understand computers? Thanks to all of you that help me by voting in this poll - thechez99 (P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong place or is repetitive, mods)
  9. During their almost national blackout on Tuesday this week, I experienced the worst and practically non existent customer support of BT. Being a BT Business Customer, you pay a little bit extra so that when something does go wrong, you get a higher priority to get it fixed, I did not experience this. When we rang the "Service Outages and Technical Faults" helpline, I was greeted with one full minute of beeping and then was greeted with the warmest of welcomes from a recorded message which said, and I quote, 'Please Hang Up'. I don't mind to the fact that they must've been pretty busy - h
  10. I think that Small Form Factor PC's are really interesting - also their applications are limitless: HTPC; Main Computer; Business Computer; LAN Setup or even small home servers! I love the fact that the MAGNUS is a barebones kit - so I'm not building a full PC, but I still get to customize certain aspects of the computer.
  11. @prolemur My client was my Dad so he was rather easy and whenever I did anything he was like "Awesome!" So that was awesome. The difficult bit was uploading the website to our host (1&1) who are absolute crap...
  12. Udacity is awesome (and sometimes free, watch out) I used the HTML, CSS & Bootstrap Fundamentals Videos and they were really good (and free ).
  13. This sounds rather interesting. I couldn't commit to anything because I have Highers going on at School for the next two years But it definitely sounds cool I have done some other work in HTML & CSS before as well. If you want to check it out it's www.orkneypestcontrol.co.uk (It's currently only a splash page as the main one is under development still (aka I'm waiting for the paragraphs and pictures))
  14. All the Telltale Episodic Games, They are amazing and their stories are pretty darn awesome but I couldn't play them again. It's like watching a movie twice
