    [​IMG] Congratulations :clap:

    Ugh, coursework is reaching the point where it sucks so much :( Am also feeling incredibly ill. Keep overheating horribly and sitting with a laptop really isn't helping!

    Yesterday Kev opened a link on a particularly... um, well she's a lovely lass, but she isn't particularly computer savvy. She got a trojan which altered her Facebook status putting a tinyurl link which he clicked and thus we got it. Spent last night sorting it out... then talking her through it... over the phone. Then the internet wouldn't work. I was told not to use system restore. Moments later Kev is bragging he fixed it by using BLOODY SYSTEM RESTORE. Ugh!

    Did they teach you this sign, complete with facial expressions and all?

    \m/ >.< \m/

    It's possibly one of the most important signs one could know... :shake:


    In other news, I ended up sleeping from 2pm yesterday till 7am today. I did wake up a few times to go to the bathroom...but I still got roughly 17 hours of sleep. :love:

    [​IMG] Malekith has in his possession a black dragon and black dragon eggs are kept in his fortress until maturity :p

    He is leader of the Dark Elves, he was meant to be king of the High Elves but during the initian ceremony he was burnt by the flames showing he wasn't worthy, even though it was his birthright - many suspected sabotage.

    The high elven lands are Ulthuan.

    So Malekith and his followers left for Naggaroth, the lands of Chill, he has lived for over 5,000 years plotting his revenge and screwing his mother.

    Because, y'know, bad guys have to have incest somewhere apparently.

    Almost by accident it turned out that my best flatmate and -lass ever both will run with their respective teams at the same sporting event that I do (a business run in Bonn). We used to go running together. Nice reunion. I guess we'll go drink something afterwards :)

    You only need to walk into a Games Workshop store in the US and you will find the "geeks" working and hanging out there. I never last more than 5 minutes before leaving, as they drive me nuts with their geek-speak and pestering about "What armies do you play, I play...." like i give a rat's a$$ about them. My usual response is "Get lost a$$wipe." More often than not, it works.

    [​IMG] Ugh, US Games Workshops are not cool from what I hear :rolleyes: they pick staff based on their salesman abilities - not checking any knowledge they have of the hobby. In the UK they employ people who enjoy and know about the hobby and actually KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

    Man, I love Star Wars. The original series is simply amazing. Just finished watching Return of the Jedi and man, except for the fact that Lucas added Hayden Christiansan into the ending, that movie is wonderful.

    If a parent goes to prison for harming her children, shouldn't, for the same reason, George Lucas face criminal charges?

    It's funny. When you listen to the snips of info from Darth Vader's past from the REAL star wars movies, that are several conflincting ideas with the three newer installations...

    Meh....StarWars... The original 3 were ok. Not great, but ok when you consider the lack of technology they had to work with. The new 3 are just awful...clearly written and marketed towards children and preteens...not the faithful fans who were/are crazy about the originals. :nono:

    Yeah, It's true. Like they say in the series Spaced when the main characters curses at Jar-Jar Binks : "The first three movies were not great either. The Ewoks, they were rubbish!":D

    It's just that when you grow up with a movie, you idolize it a bit.

    Star Wars, A new Hope - Good Movie

    Empire - Great movie

    Jedi - Lucas totally screwed this movie up! Ewoks? Are you kidding me? Could of been a good one too....

    Phantom Menace - Another screw up, Lucas picked it up where he left off in Jedi, blah...

    Attack of the Clones - Lucas was getting better with this one

    Revenge of the Sith - Like Attack of the Clones, not bad...
