Whoa, that's so not true. You know how half the time PC doesn't even load? It's because we don't have the money for better server hardware. We barely have enough to keep PC up, and a big chunk of that comes from supporter donations.

Nah, don't worry about it. It's human nature to be nostalgic about the past, and it definitely doesn't mean current-PC is any worse than the PC of yesteryear. Just think, one day years from now, people will look back at PC of right now and think "damn! I wish I was there, look at how cool it was!" :P

I wouldn't know about PC not loading because I haven't been here for a good year and a half. Money never really stopped the frequent database errors I remember so well a couple years ago.

How's about, no one leaves PC EVER! Starting...
...
...
...
Now!
I'm sure that'll fix the whole community issue.

Also I'm waiting for mum to sign over my bank account details before I start supporting PC. She manages a bank so she's kind of, you know, about money..

In other news, just got my mother to spend over $300 in clothes for me. You have no idea how much a relief that is when I'm starting Uni next year, (Or maybe you do) still exciting wither way.

I noticed that if you're buying things that are like only just 'out of style' they have a lot more specials on. So I've adopted the "Too late to be trendy" look and for $300 bucks I got a pair of street shoes, some dress shoes, a dress shirt and tie, 4 pairs of pants, two t-shirts and a beanie. Ily my mum.

Just remember, things are always the best when you just joined it. It's true for forums. It's true for games. The only exception is maybe school (people have a tendency to say, they like grade 12/13 more than grade 8/9 in high school.)

Of course I liked it most when we just moved to this server and that particular 10 month period, but that's cause I'm mega biased for that stage of my life ^___________^;;

Part of the spending issue is when you fill out those tax forms... all those money that you made, and gov't takes a huge portion. You really REALLY don't want to spend anything. My only major weakness is sour gummy coke bottle candy... I need them during work to live through the day lol.

My favorite era on PC is whenever the TCG section is buzzing with activity.

Clothes are so freaking expensive for a guy of my proportions, and are freaking hard to find. If I were any taller I'd have to shop at a specialty store or otherwise have my clothes custom-made. American size 13-Wide shoes and American size 36/34 pants are hard to find at just about any department store, be it upscale like Nordstrom, mid-range like Kohl's, or discount like Wal-Mart. Finding a comfortable pair in a style I like makes it considerably more difficult, with my choices already being limited to 3 or 4 pairs before style is factored in. I mean, I spent $75 just for a pair of pants and a pair of shoes that fit last time I went clothes shopping.

To conclude that the money wasn't doing anything based on the fact that the DB errors didn't stop would be silly. Without the money it would likely only have been worse.

Nope. The fact that the name of this place is "PC" means that there is database error by default.

I don't remember a time when the TCG is all that buzzing with activity... it's a fun game and I know a bit about it, but all TCGs like MTG and whatnot are just so pricy. Yes yes I'm dirt poor and is a total penny pincher ._.

Surprisingly, even though I didn't get a job until last week, I have never been that cheap. mainly because I always preferred to save and then spend the money on whatever I liked (magazines, good food, games, books...), while most of my friends spent all of it on drinks every weekend. Now I've got a repitation of going to expensive places to eat whenever I can, while I mock them saying that they prefer having an expensive bottle of whiskey instead.

Also, whoever asked "what is a panini", behold:

Interestingly, I only found one shop in London that sold those XD Here they are so commonplace you wouldn't say they were originally Italian.

You know, now that I think about it the majority of the paninis I've had have been while abroad..

And get this:

it's a conspiracy, Went!

Dudes.. panini means "sandwiches" in Italian. Well.. technically it means a loaves of bread. Panino is the singular form of the word. It is a popular word in the UK for a type of sandwich made with a bread roll (like focaccia) rather than just regular sliced white bread.

Sandwiches are one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. I want a grilled cheese sandwich, maybe with ham on it too.

I don't think we make a specialty of cheese and steak fajitas though XD Cheesesteaks are more than steak and cheese, only Philly makes them right.
