I'm probably guilty of neglecting the forum too. I miss it being busy, but from a personal perspective, I've just got caught up with other things. 


I still pop on for a bit of a mod now and again, but I'm so caught up with my new company that I've barely got time to scratch. 

I don't even really game any more. I started playing EVE online because you can be super casual with it. 


I'm working 6-7 days a week. 5 with TechStart, 1 with PAT testing and the last I go to the gym, take the wife swimming and do the odd bit of web design. 

I'm a director for two companies and operations manager for TechStart.

I've gone from having all the time in the world, working for Carphone, fixing phones all day and trolling forums to having no time to do anything. 


I don't say this to moan, just to point out that all of us that have been members / moderators for years have probably moved on, got promoted, have new responsibilities and obligations to attend to. I joined when I was 25/6. I'm now 32. 

My priorities have definitely changed. 

I used to be focussed on gaming, overclocking, watercooling, modding, bewbs and bbq. 

Now I'm focussing on building a future and starting a family, growing a business, developing teams that work under me and keeping the car from exploding. 


I've got nothing but love for WCUK and would dearly love to get more involved. There just aren't enough hours in the day.

For now, I pipe up when I can, and snipe mod the rest of the time. I will try though....




ps. if you're wondering what we do:

Hey guys, 


So, a small update.... I know you're all dying to see pics. 


There's been a small delay as I've had to wait for parts to come into stock. I got some emails yesterday telling me that new shinies were imminent, thanks Rob :)


I've done what I can for the moment. I'm waiting on a CPU block, a 120mm rad and some lighting. 






This is the shiny new hose....

Turns out he wasn't using 5/8" but 3/8", so I had to order yet another lot...





Looks sick though, right?



Gave me plenty of time to work on the cabling..








I even added a neat option for filling the loop... 


It's at the highest point in the loop and I'll just cap it off when full:




No fuss, no messing...
