Computer recommendation

When I got my PC I looked around for the components I wanted, and then went looking for a company that would let me build my own to that approximate specification. I found one that was reasonably priced, and had the parts I wanted. And was impressed by the speed of turnaround, and how good their customer service was. Heck, they had a page that showed you how long the live waiting times were on their phones so you knew when it was worth calling (not that I ever saw them go over five minutes).

Today, helping my father look for a new PC (because he hates his children having better computers than him), I decided to check the PC Pro Reliability & Service awards for 2009 and discovered that the winner was the people I'd gone with - PC Specialist.

So, should you be buying a PC (and be based in the UK) then I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Christmas Photo Post!

Christmas is a time of family:

and other bits of family:

and being beaten at board games:

and throwing snow in the air for the dog to catch:

and snow stretching across the fields to the horizon:

but having somewhere warm and snug to stay inside:

and beautiful sunsets:

and frankly fucking ridiculously gorgeous sunrises:
