Today I am expecting a delivery of security Torx and security Hex screwdrivers. I can then start to take bits off my naomi cab to see if it will actually fit in the dining room.

As I have a feeling it will be a rather big job I have a back up plan in the form of physical help or in otherwords 4 of us will try and turn the 18 stone monster onto its side and by jiggery-pokery slide it through the 29" gap. As its 32" wide and 32" deep, this is going to be fun :?

My husband does have a 2nd back up plan of course but that involves taking the door frame off and maybe removing a brick or two at the widest part. :lol:

After two gruelling suicide shifts I came home to the iPad I got from eBay to find that the 'pristine condition' unit was in fact covered on the back with deep scratches and REEKS of fags.

Really annoyed, have asked for my money back (which I'll get one way or another) but it just means another week or two before I can finally play with an iPad

At the very least the seller has been extremely accommodating. First agreeing to post it to me at no charge (after initially being collect only) and now agreeing to a full refund once I return it to them. I was expecting a real fight over it.

Bought a replacement on eBay tonight, a touch (hah!) more expensive but from the gallery of photos I know for sure that this one is in minty condition

Just means I gotta wait till like, Wednesday before I get to play on it :evil:

You must resist the urge.
You really dont want to become one of "those" Apple fans.

One of "Those" fans that lap up every thing they come out with.

You know the Applefags

^Oh come on prinny.

I was never pro-Apple before, dont care for their computers/laptops, quite happy with my PC. But then when i finally tested out an ipod touch and played a few games i was totally sold.

The people who queue outside shops for hours to get the latest ipad i think are sad, the ones who will buy anything Apple and hate PC are odd, but on the other hand the ones who constantly slate Apple off without trying out their devices are also a bit strange.

Once i played a few iOS games i was hooked, got an ipad now, great bit of kit. I'm not going to go crazy and buy an Apple netbook/desktop computer or that but iOS gaming is very very good. If you've tried it for a while and dont like it then fair enough, but just slating it for the 'sake' of slating it is just as bad as Apple fanboys. I doubt you've tried an ipad for 30 minutes or more have you ?

I doubt you know the difference between an ipad2 and 3, if i gave you an ipad 2 and said it was a 3 i'm sure you wouldnt bat an eyelid

I've got a MacBook and an iPad - they're ace. They p*ss over every PC I've ever owned.

I do get some of what DPrinny is saying, my mates girlfriend has an Apple macbook, does she use it for all its features ? Nope, she just uses Safari to log onto Facebook and wanted to get Apple because of the 'name', pathetic ! So there are people like that who simply get it because of the name and then dont use the device to its potential.

But i'm sure 99% of us here are different and if we have an Apple device we use it for a lot of things and a lot of gaming. My wifes got an iphone, how many apps does she have for it - 5 ! Pathetic ! Her and her mates like it because they like the way it shows the txt history ! Pah ! Her phones criminally underused !
