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 
doing there...

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*
