I went to try and get computer bits in town yesterday (DVD drive & case fan) and the shop that I've bought stuff in before apparently doesn't sell stuff - it's a LAN games place, but as it advertises on the window that it sells components and I've bought several things there over the last couple of years I was a bit annoyed at the spotty oik behind the desk telling me that they'd never sold stuff. I looked in Maplins as well, but everything there was about twice the price of online, so I need to order stuff now. Instant gratification denied ;)

Also went to the library while I was in town - one of the CDs I'd reserved for J was in, and I took back 4 of the books I'd read. And got a couple more from the new books rack. One of which ins the new Jacqueline Carey (Banewreaker), which I've started to read ... so far, too flowery, but we'll see.

In the evening we flea-sprayed the cat, who spent the rest of the evening trying to hide under things and shooting hurt looks at us. Which fell rather flat, as we were paying more attention to Quake4 ;)

i think the last fan I got was from PC world, and it wasn't too badly priced. it was more a case of 'eek the server's fucked until we replace the fan, cos it's one of those that detects the fan has stopped spinning and shuts down' so we needed it immediately

but yeah, online was several quid cheaper, if you don't mind the wait

Yeah, the fan's not desperate (neither's the DVD drive really, the game hasn't shipped yet) - it just sounds a tad noisier than usual, so time to get a spare.

I'm told that 1st Graphic, which is just up the road from us, is good for PC bits. It's a closer walk than town too.

Ooh. Probably about the same distance, but possibly cheaper that Maplins. I shall try and remember they exist in future :)

Probably about the same distance

I'm sad, I know, but it's 0.7 miles to 1stGC and 0.8 miles to Maplin, from you, according to Google Maps.

OK OK, near enough the same distance to be irrelevant :P Less than 15 minutes walk either way ...
