Re: Stuff and Things.

I use that and a Svideo cable to a 19" NEC TV. Its pretty good. SIDE is something I have wanted to get for a while. Th...

Re: How do private messages work on the forum

I have a couple of messages in my outbox sent ages ago, but I don't think the user is about any more, so they just sit there.

It's normal behaviour as DoG and exxos have said.
