    As I said the post were edited.. .

    Nope were not happy, Just with the weather over these last few weeks here (Not exceptionally cold compared to the places around the world)..

    Being Self employed and my Business revolves around the weather.. So if the weather is Bad im not at work.. Which means im not earning much over the last month or so...

    Just to have my car in the garage twice within 2 weeks is two bills I could of done without.

    Don't you guys have some kind of service that pays for service on your car for a small monthly fee? They even cover towing and the rental fee.

    Yes there is, But if you don't have a break down then it is wasted money. (Could say that with any insurance)

    But most will only cover cars that is no older than 10 years old (Mine is 11 years this year) and requires a Full service History by a Garage.. I do my own Service so that won't count.

    like CAA? A break down will get you the ability to have it hauled to the closest service station... but getting it repaired will always cost you. Things aren't just universally covered at not cost outside of a "paid service plan" and to get nearly anything repaired that you pay for money tends to cost an arm and a leg, you'd be better off with a new lease/pay to own plan of sorts on a new vehicle. It's FAR cheaper to dish out say $2800 or even 5000 on a vehicle to keep it running for the next 15-20 years rather than spending close to twice the value of the car on monthly payments over a 10 year period.

    I do have AA Breakdown & recovery service, So if things do go bad they will try to fix a Fault by the roadside if possible. If not they will tow me to a garage of either my preference or what they recommend..

    I'm really enjoying this Cherry MX Blue keyboard, it is a real joy to type on and for games it is great!

    It's my first ever Cherry MX board and I'm never going back.

    I can't tell you how many people I've converted from membrane keyboards to mechanical. The only hold outs are those that have Lenovo branded ThinkPlus Preferred Pro keyboards. Probably the only membrane keyboards I would ever use outside of a mechanical MX Brown (or alternatives like the Razer Orange or Logitech's Romer-G Tactile).

    I've had my current XBOX Controller since the XBOX 360. (At least I can't recall having bought another one.) That is, until now. While playing with my son and some friends in Destiny 2 the other night, they started telling me to disconnect my mic and headphones due to severe static coming through my controller. The problem was that the headset I was using was plugged into the controller and the connection was loose enough that any kind of movement on my end was causing the static sound.

    So, I got a new one...

    The best thing about cherry mx blue keyboards is if you live with other people in the same place. If they don't particularly like you, they will love you after you start playing and typing on a cherry mx blue keyboard.
    LOVE YOU.

    There is one little niggle, All the controls are done by a mini joystick at the rear of the monitor.. It would of been nice to of a small button in the front Bezel to switch on/off the Gaming Mode. It would of been easier.

    One of the most popular commercial games before computer based games took over.
    Apparently they are still making these.
