    I have a machine that shares my internet connection which is on 24/7 and my PC in my room is on pretty much 24/7 too. I sometimes turn it off when I go to bed, but recently I have been leaving it on.

    theres always about 3 on in our house, does anyone know how much energy they use? must be quite alot.
    I think that CRT monitors use loads of electricity so they get turned off after 10 mins of inactivity.

    yeh i leave mine on 24/7 - with Xnews downloading everything i can get my grubby little hands on
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    nokia, did you manage to sort out your problem with the trade you did? either way you should post an update in swap shop so we know if the guy you traded with is safe to deal with or not.
