Pwnz0r, how do you pay 10% up front and then the rest over 9 months interest free?

well you pay 10% then pay the rest within 9 months interest free, although there is an admin fee of £25, its a small price to pay, you can select this option when you spend over £300 at

Sig removed due to size. Please refer to the sig rules before adding another one.

I just graduated HS and plan to go to college in sept. I work at this place called Parsifal for now. They're in Intl Move Mngmnt. They basically audit oversea moves for companies so their relocated employees don't get pirated/lose their goods. The companies love it. The insurance agencies love it. I know the guy who started it like 7 years ago, and I dated his daughter lol...

I do mostly e-mails and random "Office Space" type jobs. Today I got to answer phone calls from the UK, Singapore, and...Connecticut? lol.

I get paid well though, and with my Grad $$$ I now have $1300. Enough to buy my new pc. I think I'll wait 'til early July so I don't go broke. Also, Conroe or G80 MIGHT be out by then to drive down the prices...

About conroe though...did you notice the benches? It only kicks AMD's *** in lower-end gaming. Their neck and neck when the going gets rough. Still impressive. But not life-threatening for AMD. I might be mistaken but idk...

Its not really a CS:S clan. We do custom maps and other stuff for other clans and that's how we make our living.
