haven't got time for hobbies nige, can't do any work but still got to be there

I think half the problem is I used to be excited by the work / making changes / taking on new stuff and now it just stresses me out

maybe I'm just doing too many things at once, sounds daft but I keep forgetting I can't anymore


matt the problem is I'm not really a proper mong, I'm just not as smart/quick as I used to be, I don't think anyone but me really notices the difference, I have to think about things that I knew pretty much intuitively before, I used to know how much stock we had in the freezer without looking, but now I have to look - it doesn't sound like a big deal but it makes a mess of things for us, if I need to order in extra chicken the chicken factory needs 3 days notice and we need to change what's happening in the factory to fit around it.

(p.s. I decided because I'm dyslexic and brain damaged I'm allowed to use the word mong and it's not offensive)


Jamie where do you work again?  because if someone phones them up and tells them you're a kiddy fiddler it's nothing to do with me...

on the bright side I'm really glad to hear that, I was a dick to you at the end there and I never apologised to you, meant to phone you back and do it after I talked to you before but didn't really know how.   it was great having you up here because you were someone on my side when everyone else is just looking out for themselves.

if your job ever goes sideways or you change your mind about it let me know straight away - I'd love to offer you a job again.

Its alright, the whole getting used to living 350 miles away was stressing me out, i thought i had it nailed, maybe i should have popped home a couple of times, you know my brothers were driving me nuts but i still missed them lol.

I thank you for the opportunity it was great getting away and having a job someone where else, i thoroughly enjoyed working with you and bs your employees telling them i was a qualified engineer in to help you turn the factory around lol.

Ahem remember the incident with having my shirt ripped off my back by that big industrial fan haha.

If my job ever goes tits up ill be knocking on your door, i would still be interested in buying a house up there, you get more for your money.

Hey Cool,
You did not mention me, I am forgettable :(

You know we should all do something together or try to be more dynamic.
Do you guys use Slack? We could make a slack group to hang out "live" on there?

Gamers decide on something like PUBG and do regular groups. Always still want to interact and chat with you guys but these forums while awesome are a bit static.

@knighty - Miss you man! Hope you are well.

Nexus, you can come play wow on Kronos, i play on an emulation server now and again just to play the auction house, i am a lvl 7 with 29 gold lol

Only Nostralius as it literally got too big, a login to the main server on a weekend and there was 15k people on one server, whih is a lot of people and you can imagine all the ganking going on at quest locations.

The lads from Nost went to Blizzard and fought the case that people want Vanilla servers and now Blizzard have taken note and Vanilla will go retail in the next couple of months.

There are some emulation servers going for Vanilla, TBC and Wrath of the Lich King, i play on a Vanilla server Kronos, its a small community. Elysium is the biggest one currently, most of them are blizzlike vanilla but there are a few that give increased xp etc.

Evening !

Much like CoOl's original post; I found myself at my desk wondering what had become of this forum and it's members. Turns out that you're all pretty much still here, which is kind of awesome in this age of constantly moving to the "next big thing" :)

Sorry to read that some of you are having tough times but I am genuinely smiling that so many of your are still here  :thumbup:

I'm sure the last time I heard from some of these people the forums were in hieroglyphics... : :muttley:

Welcome back.

I have now moved most of my political garbage onto facebook too, where I like to troll the Labour party, Conservatives, Lib-Dems, uKIP (aka the tired party) and do an occasional post on the Brexiteer and remoaner pages too.

i could possibly be one of the oldest if anyone remembers me from OCS!

Wasn't that the OverCockup Store or something? I remember it being regarded as a badge of honour to get banned from there at one point.

Following the tanned idiot is both horrifying and hilarious. His recent EU trip has just been shocking.

I think you might be thinking of Overclockers UK, the owner at the time could be a bit of an arsehole at times, and was occasionally quite openly racist. People used to get banned from the forum for all sorts of trivial things if they got on the wrong side of him. Though he also seemed to do pretty well for himself and ended up growing it into a a very nice size business worth millions, which was impressive to be fair to him.

The overclocking store was what existed before tekheads, I guess there was some brief overlap where Sam and Steve set up tekheads and the other owner of OCS ran it for a bit before it failed and disappeared, but essentially when tekheads got set up a load of the customers and forum user migrated across and OCS died.
