    The R8 is OP. Period.

    It was me vs 3 AK's on long. I left clicked the first bloke, flicked to guy on my right, silenced him with the right click of doom and at last, I sniped the guy in pit with the mighty dangerous left click.

    No missed shots. I think it needs a small nerf. Just a small one.

    Actually what happened. Ignore the music if you like but it sums it up. You've probably already seen it, but whatever.

    FYI, there is a bit of software called "YouNeedABudget" (YNAB) that is pretty handy for managing money. This software is also provided for free if you are a student.

    Its not so much managing my budget as my budget being in the negatives.

    For a quick breakdown:
    Expenditure for housing alone:
    my rent is £1404 for term 1, 1092 for term 2, 936 for term 3. Total of 3432. I then have £150 to pay for term 1 utilities, £100 for term 2 and 3, although some of that will be refunded at end of term 3.
    Total 3782 out just for a roof and utilities (for which I am evicted if I dont pay either)

    *ALL* Income:
    My student finance maintenance loan is 1144.77 for terms 1 & 2, 1179.46 for term 2, total £3469. My student finance grants and university bursaries total £0, I am ineligible. Job, applied for every single one that I can, unsuccessfully.
    Total 3469

    3469-3782=-313
    Yes, I have a budget of negative three hundred and thirteen pounds for food for the year.


    As it stands, I've survived this far thanks to having a small (literally small) amount of money saved over the summer, a little extra cash from gran, a £500 overdraft (as technically my bank balance is -487) and my "partner" insisting on giving me money to cover food costs when they stay.

    I did apply to the unis financial assistance fund back in october which is means tested against the individual student rather than taking the student finance approach of going from parents.
    Yes my stepdad earns enough to put me in the very bottom bracket of government support, they dont take into account that his debts are staggering and that he is supporting a rather large family, the entire time I have been here he has spared £7 towards me. Dad has given me £60 the entire time I have been here. Mum goes as far as to expressly say money is my problem and as such has done nothing but send me a box of mince pies and an advent calendar.

    Financial assistance fund requires 3 months worth of my bank statements, copies of my housing contracts and a copy of my student finance payments. They measure it up based on my actual means and needs. I went into the uni in october, spoke to the finance team directly who seemed pretty convinced that should I file the paperwork I'll get a pretty large sum, they then gave me the paperwork and all that. I submitted it within 2 days. I checked my bank balance yesterday discovering how low I was and realised that they should have gotten back to me by late november, they havent. I went into the uni again yesterday, they have no trace of me ever submitting an application besides my name being on the timetable for drop-in sessions all that time ago, hilariously the woman remembers me as being the guy who was sat so sweetly with his girlfriend in the waiting area before...

    I have the same problem with my laptop its weird since its pretty expensive $2000 to be exact my mum said I have to stick to my current machine for now also she isn't willing to buy any components to modify our desktop dam if only I had a part time job I could buy some pc parts.

    One reason I prefer console is that you don't have to fluff around trying to get the game to run smoothly.

    So another relative of mine told me to be expecting something very soon, I asked why/what is it, only received vague details, though they said it was "automotive" related.


    I don't know what to expect.

    Microsoft must have worked really hard to make Internet Explorer as awful a program as it really is. Been loading the banana benchmark results for 10 minutes now and crashed twice. Can't wait to get home to chrome.

    Yeah, because you can't get the game to run smoothly.

    More tests. Going to work on a new pixel format for IDF called 2P2HV. Something that seems like it *might* work in my head, but may not

    Does this include everyone that already has mentioned it? I apologize for my own mentioning of it that I made before this warning was posted and wish I could remove said mentioning.
