Ehm, no. Try again. :p

Last post date was today. Comments are auto-locked after (I believe) seven days, to prevent spam/bots.

Yeah, something I had to do. Don't mind anonymous comments (or do I? Can't remember!) but I started noticing that bots were spamming posts that were months/years old and it took me hours to kill em all.

We like anonymous commenting, however it makes it far too easy for bots to spam.

Perhaps some form of captcha could be implemented when posting anonymously?

GoW kicks ass. I finished the game on Casual and Hardcore (the guy at the end was a b*tch to kill). Looking forward to trying Insane mode. Woo! :D

No GoW at the moment. Here is my week:

Yesterday: Superman Returns and Batman Begins HD-DVDs arrive.
Today: Xbox 360 HD-DVD arrives
Wednesday: HD-DVD drive actually arrives, stupid xmas
Thursday: Pioneer 43" HDTV Plasma second hand from my boss
Friday: Acer Ferrari 1000
Saturday: Start xmas shopping

Can't belive I haven't gone HD yet, looking forward to seeing what the fuss is all about. Anyone want a non-hd 42" Plasma? Don't know how much I could even sell that for now :eek:

None-HD 42" Plasma's are worth aboot £500 new at the moment.

Let me know how good the image is on that Pioneer, we had a pioneer in New Zealand, and quite honestly it was sh*t, which I was rather surprised at, however, that could of been blamed on the input devices.

Problem is that it sometimes gets artifacts, so will need to google that today, its not perminent artifacts so I don't think its actual damage :eek:

the Pioneer still retails for about £3000 its quite a high range one, getting it for about £1350 so a bit of a bargain as my boss leaves for the USA next week so effectively I am paying for his new 60" one -- ho hum.
