      Probably a good starting point. What armies does everyone collect?
      If anyone remembers me from way back when I used to post in the 40k thread I still collect Necrons, Space Wolves, Tyranids and Imperial Guard.

      ...that when you are desparately bored and in need of something to do everyone is busy.
      And then when you do have something already planned, a load of other stuff crops up at the same time.

    • Ok, so maybe it's Sunday

      Roit, proper update. Unless I get bored, or tired, or both...probably both. Ok, so I have moved out. I'm house sharing with a girl called Kerry, she is my landlady. I'm living in a town called Sandycroft, in Flintshire, North Wales. My house is quite literally a five minute walk from the - quite frankly huge - Airbus A380 wing factory (which itself is situated inside Hawarden Airport) I can see it above the houses opposite.
      My apprenticeship with Airbus started last Monday. We had an induction in the East factory, which is on the other side of the airport, in a town called Broughton. We got a tour of the factories where they make the wings for the A320, A330, A340 and soon, the A350. The day was actually quite boring, because 80% of it was just presentations and signing paperwork such as my contract to Airbus, and the Official Secrets Act.
      On the Tuesday I had my induction to Deeside college, which is where I will spend the first year of my apprenticeship. This induction was much the same as Mondays, only without the factory tour. Duh. But the college does have it's own hangar, with two Jet Provosts, a twin-engined Cessna, and a working A320 wing for us to work on.
      So basically, that's all there is to say really. I'm still working in Tesco, on a Sunday, to make up some extra rent money. Of course I have had to have a transfer to the nearby Broughton store, since Towcester is now a 3+hour drive away.
      Oh, and I'm getting myself a moped. Not out of choice - they sound like a fecking hairdryer - but out of necessity, as my best way of getting to college. My CBT is in four weeks time. I will work up to something bigger, I just urgently need a mode of transport, and a moped is the quickest way to do it.

      Back online. At last. But in Wales this time. Flintshire to be precise. This is my new home people. Don't have time to do a long entry. Will try and do one tomorrow afternoon but I make no promises. I will by Saturday for certain though.

    • Last ever entry from Towcester

      11 years ago

      staigscrane

      I'm moving out on Saturday, to start my apprenticeship (internship for all you non-UKers) with Airbus UK. I'm training to be an aircraft fitter and will eventually be working on the A380. I'm sharing a house with a landlady in a town called Hawarden, which is in Flintshire, North Wales. This is probably my last entry from Towcester, since I am packing my computer this afternoon. So, tata for now, and I'll see you in Wales!

    • Towcester has flooded

      12 years ago

      staigscrane

      The river Tove has burst it's banks and the A5 now has a new ford. Seriously. And the Silverstone Brook which is about 100metres from my back garden is looking dangerously swollen too. I need sandbags!

      In other news, we got the last Harry Potter book delivered at Tesco yesterday. So I inevitably had a sneaky read in the lockup. Just the last few pages, so I can spoil it for a few people. But it's such a boring ending I don't see the point lol. If anyone wants to know before it comes out tomorrow, I'll gladly tell you what I know. I didn't get a thorough read but I can help you decide if it's worth reading or not.

      Ouch, that sucks. Ah well, another copy can cost you as little as £1 in a bargain bin. I think it might even be available as freeware now.

      I'm not too worried about the cost of replacing it, I'd even pay full whack if that was the only way to get it again. I was just bummed because I wanted to play the game there and then and all it wanted to do was act like a grenade.

      Well, they completely changed the mod system, instead of having your own little cache you can mod something once and only once. They now have groups you can join in the community. They've added a completely separate tab for Grifball and a tab called Achievement Hunter which basically helps you with game Achievements, the new series Reconstruction was pretty fun, and intense. Also to kind of quiet down the award whores they've added the milestones for personal achievements on the site. Other than that I can't think of much.

      Haha, yeah, I know what you mean. I guess you've already noticed some of the changes to the site, as well as the new series which just ended.

      Oh, thanks, Craig. That guy blocked me, so I needed to say this on your profile.

      "Being patriotic doesn't mean blindly following your government and president. It is believing in what is best and right for you country and it's interests.
      Grunt, Just because he has a differing opinion doesn't make it wrong. And just because he doesn't believe in the war doesn't mean he hates America. He just hates your government and foreign policy. If you disagree with what he is saying then come up with a decent arguement, rather than saying the standard response I hear so many 'patriotic' Americans say."


      I half agree with your deffinition of patriotic. Although, that is prety much the most accurate deffinition of the word, most people do what you say shouldent be done. Blindly following and thinking as everyone in the collective, which I am against. And that is one of the reasons I am against patriatism for any country. Patriatism, to me is a bit like text book comunism. What I mean by that statement, is that it looks good on paper, but it often goes wrong and turns into somthing very bad. Like war for example, many wars have been waged just because one country thought it was so much more bad ass than another, and all of the "patrioitic" people were behind it 100% and they either got their asses kicked of killed the other side for no reason.
      And thank you so very much for being civil with this. I rarly see it now adays.

      Okay after reading your battle report in the 40k thread and that comment I've now got the right to smash you over the head with the rulebook.

      As A. You deepstriked turn 1 not allowed deepstriking does not occur until turn 2 earliest.
      And B. You assualted after deepstriking a very big not allowed.

      So your raveners should have not arrived until a turn later and would probably have been killed due to the mass gauss fire on the turn they arrived on seeing as they can't move the turn they arrive making them sitting ducks.
