    well, after waiting 5 weeks for my Live pack, I decided to check where it had got to,

    Checked the tracking site, and sure enough, I ordered on the 5th Jan, it was posted on 7th Jan from Germany, and arrived on 9th Jan.


    So, quite a good turnaround I would say...

    As would Greg Orace, the chap that signed for it in Clifton Street, Bristol.

    Unfortunately I don't live there, nor do I know a Greg Orace.


    oh well. :rolleyes:

    LOL. :laugh:

    After I PM'd you yesterday I checked the UPS site and found that mine had been delivered yesterday. :clap: Took less than a week from actual dispatch.

    What are you going to do now? Have you arranged for a replacement?

    I look forward to crashing at most corners on Moto GP with you. :)

    I am going to hang around the streets of Bristol tonight, looking for a man with a voice communicator but no subscription.:(

    After 4 weeks of not being able to talk, I am going to be the loudest, most verbal t*sser on there :smashin:

    Put it this way, I'm sellotaping the white button down now :smashin:

    CHeers Sinzer, although if the voice communicator ear piece actually goes in your ear, I might just wait for a new (clean) one...:(

    That's really nice that is! Now poor old Greg Orace from Bristol is known for being a thief with dirty ears!

    :D

    well, although the system said Bristol, it actually meant the picture shop across the road.

    (funnily UPS didn't bother to put a card through my door.)

    so, I'm all Lived up now.

    Cool bit of marketing by Telewest for BlueYonder, you wait and see - MS will soon be the ones delivering the entire gaming experience to your door.


    Its lucky me and my girlfriend split up recently, because if she'd seen me wearing this headset she would have dumped me, and then I would be sat in everynight on my own.... err, hang on a second.. :rolleyes:

    That's great news :)
    Will you be "rehearsing" tonight?, if so, are we to lock and load or would Maddy prefer to show off her new bike?

    I don't think I'll be able to get on before 7/7:30, but cheers for the offer anyway. :smashin:

    If I manage to get on earlier and I see that you're online I'll come and meet you, but otherwise I'll meet up with you soon mate.

    I do have this amazing habit of lying on the side of the road and watching the bikes go by...

    It's very therapeutic! :rolleyes:
