    Attention-Whoring

    I'm back.

    Hopefully there are those that remember me still. I recall childish signatures and such by myself promoting/boasting of my then newly acquired broadband (and then getting my fire ****ed in by Neil and Marc :>). I used to post a bit under 2 years ago fairly regularly before turning stopping due to various reasons, from coursework issues(which i never really did much on anyway:/) to waning interest in cricket. But admittedly, with the summer season and a slap-tastic msn conversation with many of the regulars(well, I assume they're regulars), I've been tempted back :o.

    i've grown a tad more matured in many ways, experienced far too many life-troubling issues and in the middle of my gcse's (which I really should start revising for.) Etc etc

    So,

    hi!

    Yes Neil, with your 10mb line at uni etc. Don't remember? We were all comparing bandwidth limits via the results of that test on bandwidthplace.com orso.
