Word of advice, ******* are pants!! Their owner **** knows nothing about
PC's.. They sell crap hardware and have only one person who knows what he is
I lived 2 mins from them, and now about 10, thank god.. I went for a job and
they said 'you know nothing about PC's' HAHAHAHA thats so funny! So i went
to work for another company who compete against them..
I've covered out names and even the name of the company because google
searches this list and I don't wanna put my size 13s in it.. I will say this
tho have a look at *cough*
