Been Through Some Tough times of Late

Post by JimmyMcGrory on Tue Sep 15, 2015 9:02 pm

My Windows XP desktop has breathed its last, think the hard drive expired but I'm gonna see if I can salvage anything off it. My laptop is also living on borrowed time, the fucking thing wont charge. To that end I've taken the plunge and bought a Macbook, oh the fucking shame. please don't hate me crown Very Happy

Anyways I'm thinking about getting a vpn, where else would I be looking for some sensible advice on something such as this but from you shower of rogues. Anyone got one? Basketball

aye Jimmy, I've got Nord. Don't know why I bothered because apparently they're bad form on torrent sites and I'm going to get my sorry arse banned Twisted Evil

Waste of time, why didn't one of you cunts tell me Very Happy

Look after Macs for two or three people, but moan constantly to their owners about them, all that chrome in the UI hurts my eyes.

What are you hoping to gain from using a VPN, James? If your ISP is blocking your access to the Pirate Bay, you could try installing Tor for Mac https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-osx.html.en Navigate to the file you want with the Tor browser, then copy the torrent link into you torrent client. Thatís what I do, as my ISP blocks the Pirate Bay, but as Iím not a homosexual (just very camp) I use Windows.
You should be able login to forums with Tor.

Spinrite will probably cure your hard drive issues.

Laptop charging ports are easy to change (though itís likely the charger at fault) and normally only cost a tenner. Iíd do it for you mate if you didnít live so far away, another non paying client makes no difference when youíre already in the poorhouse.

Thanks for the reply crown, I thought you'd wander by eventually Very Happy

I thought the VPN would keep my nosey BB provider at bay, I can access the sites I need apart from IP Torrents. It was only when I tried to log into What did I realise I'd get punted for using the VPN. Not sure what I'll use it for now, do you think I'll get my £24 back?

The laptop is pretty fucked anyway but its not a charger issue. Don't think its worth repairing TBH

If you wish to protect your privacy use a VPN, but most suppliers keep logs. Not a problem for what youíre accessing, arboreal porn doesnít carry a prison sentence.

Tor should gain you access to torrent sites and wonít get you banned. Youíre on your own installing it on a Mac though, I have no interest, sorry.

£24 is a kingís ransom to me, James.

Looks like that money is a goner, shame really I could have bought six bottles of Kooliburra Shiraz from Aldi with that scratch

Everything's so fucking complicated with this machine. Thankfully google is full of advice for hopeless fuckers like me. Can't get the blutooth to work properly though, despite trying all the fixes recommended online. You'd think Apple would have got that right but apparently it only happens to some people

Not that you give a fuck of course Very Happy Very Happy

Did you tell the surgeon you were the ging-herr prince and demand he wield his scalpel with respect, James?

Next time you need hospital treatment (and avoid it at all costs, especially medicines and vaccines, theyíre mostly poison {slight hyperbole maybe}) ask to receive it at Adambrookeís, they have the best looking hospital staff in the UK. I was there today, it takes oneís breath away.
Have a photo of Car Park No1, as you canít really photograph the nurses.



One trusts youíre recovering from your op?

As youíre now halfway to homosexuality, well youíve bought a Mac, Iíve sent you a present, itís 2.3 GB in size and has ďMo Zip1.zipĒ on the tag, but donít worry about that.

My Hudl2 went the same way Jimmy, I hit it off the dog and it seems to be working fine, which is good really because the retail whore that is Tesco stopped doing them

Tempted to show this thread to the local pork, it reads like two paedos trying to work their way round the dark web.
What a pair of arseholes. You sure it was a femur shave, and not just "voluntary" chem castration, Jimmy? And if you can't work a Mac, just give it back. They're strictly for people with opposable thumbs*

(*no offence, Sev)

who stole you're scone Mo? Up Yours

It took some time getting used to after decades of windows use. Thankfully the latest update seems to have made the hunk of silver shit more like windows, either that or I've got used to it

Femur shave indeed, I've got a hip made out of old toilets. The whole thing was chopped off

Did I tell you I was contemplating an Iphone? Very Happy

Pictures or it didn't happen, James.

Latest defib implant:



Cunt virtually dug the old one out with a spade, then he wanted to shock me to test a lead, I said no. Fucking doctors, wrong-uns to a man.
Sore as fuck at the moment, don't be ill gents.

Goodness, it must have been upsetting enough for readers to see my tits, the thought of your arse may push the gentler ones over the edge, James. Of course the light footed readers might be most enthusiastic at the prospect.
