Re: Lifes little gripes II

Just gonna bring this up again real quick. I found out why that teacher from a month or so back didn't want me to watch her class. Turns out she WAS embarrassed, 'cos she totally wants to DO me. There was a staff party some weeks ago, she got pissed and was all over me like a cheap goddam suit. Doe...

Re: Windows XP expiring... so what?

I installed Windows 8 but very quickly downgraded back to Windows 7 as 8 is a memory hog. Out of 8Gb, only 2.5Gb was free in 8 compared to 7.9Gb in 7.......... That being said, if Microsoft get it sorted, I probably would go back to 8. But for people who only use a computer for the basics; web, offi...

Re: Windows XP expiring... so what?

Why not just keep WinXP? Keep your antivirus and security software up to date, don't install dodgy programs or visit certain websites and you'll be fine.

Re: SIM cards in Oz and Japanese smartphones

You need to get your phone unlocked. Softbank won't do it from what I hear.......Not sure about AU. Docomo does.

You could try doing it yourself. Some phones are quite easy. Others impossible. And there is always the risk of bricking your phone.

Re: Decent tv

I'm almost finished with Netflix's original show "House of Cards", and I gotta say, it's pretty bloody good. Kevin Spacey does a great job in the lead, but I also find the supporting cast great too. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone that likes a little bit of political intrigue. Seeming them do...

I wouldn't know. I kept my head down when I was in Shiki........Kate did come across as a bit harsh and it didn't seem that the situation with this guy, whoever he was, was unusual for her.


But, you seem to know her well, so I'll accept that she wasn't the spawn of Saruhashi......
