I think I remember that overclickers used to be known as overcocksuckers at one point, thus me not remembering OCS...

I disliked the owner so much I never actually bothered buying anything there. The big change came the distance selling regulations 2000 which severely limited their and other mail order companies options.

I think they've improved a bit now, though there was a period where they had a pretty terrible reputation for customer service.

Not in the list but herro :)

Er... big stuff what be in my life er... Got engaged... started going through so much bullsh*t I got unengaged, got stupid arse high in a company that just brought sh*tty horrible management stress my way, moved pentest firms, now under sh*tty horrible normal stress but at least it's not dealing with firing your mate's and is instead mostly client or workload induced.

Also... Like I was fat before... But bugger me I've gotten super fat. Not good! Trying to get unsuperfatted.

And I feel really old. :D

I got fat too, over 16 stone, then the fibromyalgia caught up with me. Feel really old, tired and a lot of the time don't remember to eat. Actually not feeling hungry really cuts down on the calories for me. I'm just within 'normal'.

I have classic dad bod now, which I firmly blames on the 30s ruining my impressive metabolism. I'd rather enjoy life than be a diet slave though. Unless I get gout  :lol:

can't believe it's been 10 years since you moved to NZ !

I'm not ignoring you!  hardly talk to anyone forum or not, working crazy hours so not much free time

you can facebook me any time :-)

(I hate facebook but I'm on a fair bit to admin the company page, I unfriended everyone in an effort to cut down on crap but I'm still there)

Came to Sunderland 7 years ago to work with Knighty, it didn't work and i went home, and got myself into Scrap Metal / Salvage Cars & Parts heavily, but its a stressful life and i wanted a change after losing family members, i felt there was nothing left for me down south.

Came back to Sunderland 6-8 weeks ago, i have now moved from Exeter to live here, confirmed this lastnight by changing my car insurance which was surprisingly cheaper! Not saying its rough here haha. I have found rented accomodation for the time being but houses are much more affordable so i will be buying at some point.

I keep saying to Knighty i am going to come back on here and start a load of threads and revitalise the place, its going to happen soon haha.  :lol:

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

wait... I fell through a roof, landed on my head and forgot some stuff....

didn't you fall off a roof and break your ankles or something like that?  (like I say... forgot some stuff... might be thinking of someone else)
