I was cooking and getting hotter by each post I read. It's like when ya bursting for the toilet and the closer you get to home and knowing you can finally go, the more and more you need to go until it seems you timed it just perfectly. If you stayed out a minute longer you would have had an accident.

Aaaaaaaaanyway yeah.... I think I left a bit of myself melted to her bed!!
lol, my GF is asleep next to me, I'm just posting on here, listening to music and coding in VB. Photoshopping too!!!

Nah not really, just pretty bored, gonna go bed. My operating system is coming along nicely. Login system is quite hard actually, no encryption though lol.

Never tried one of those electronic book reader things, sound interesting to mod though .

My laptop lives on the bedside table or on a tray on my lap as my lappy can almost boil water when I push it.

I had an all day, all night gaming sesh last year and was finally forced to get some sleep when it auto shut down after reaching 90oC.

OOPS!

Never really had any problems with temps, I got a cooler which separates it rather than cool it, waste of £20.

I don't know if you like horror Nathan but I read anything by Dean Koontz religiously. I like early Stephen King ( Cujo, It etc), but found his later stuff....predictable. If you get the opportunity to read any Koontz stuff I can highly recommend Watchers, Twilight Eyes and Odd Thomas.

If horror isn't your thing then I'd recommend the Bourne Trilogy by Robert Ludlum or even Bryce Courtenay is quite good (Cry Freedom or The Power of One)

Orwell 1984 - classic.

Marching Powder is pretty good - English guy who gets imprisoned in a Bolivian prison for dope smuggling (iirc)

Million Little Pieces - just gripping...

Just started Dice Man the other day...

Diceman is a great book. If you like it, you might want to read the wasp factory. Mabey not right after as they deal with similar issues, but it's one to keep in mind.
