Still being ill since 26th December. Still got a sore throat (it went away but came back), still can't talk loud or shout, or make high pitch noises, and half the day I can't hear properly out my right ear, though I can hear myself much too loudly and internal noises through it.

It makes me wonder what you're like 'normally', when not being able to shout and make high pitched noises is bothersome to you. I'm glad I don't share an office with you :lol:

Actually I'm probably the quietest person you would ever meet.

I only noticed the high pitch thing when I went back to work and was murdering a Radiohead song in the car, but couldn't do the high bits (no sound comes out at all).

The shouting thing was when someone called me for my tea, and I could hardly answer loud enough for them to hear me.

Having somebody arrange for their ebay parcel to be collected from me by courier and completely ignoring what I said about which days I would be in all day. They book it for a day I'm at work and surprise, surprise I get a card through my door. To top it all off, I re-arranged with the courier and they didn't show up on the agreed day. Ugh...just can't be bothered to deal with this.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Ebay app?!?

relisted a few games that hadnt sold as ebay sends those 100 free listing things...on my sellers account on my desktop pc id purposly previously declined the offer of compulsory joining of international shipping thing that they want or expect all to hop aboard.

one game has sold to some guy called chachywachy in spain...wtf? i go onto my app and lo and behold, even though its an ad that i had previously listed and just relisted as the item hadnt sold, now after checking in the postage bit there is an option slide on my ipod for international bidders that you manually have to turn off, that wasnt there when i first uploaded the ads...definitly.

there is obviously going to be some clause that ive agreed to during an app update but its never been there before!! so annoyed.

im dreading sending it to be honest, its resident evil2 on dreamcast...my luck or lack of luck is sure to bite me on the asss.
