  1. Hey there, I read your posts, regarding the NCsoft press conference. Will you post any updates after the meeting in May?

      It's not that, I mean I sit there, observing. And they'd laugh at the most daft things.

      Like my lecturer draws a deer with no eye. "No eye deer!"

      Everyone laughs like there's no tomorrow. I'm sitting there facepalming, saying.

      "R-..Really?..."

  4. Ooh... These pyjamas are bloody comfortable!

  5. I look back at it now. Waiting for 5/6 years... That's pretty long.

      I use to be "White Wolf" But I've changed my display name now.

  7. A computer gaming desk?

    I know, I just read the specifications. Bose 5.1 speakers, not bad at all.
  8. A computer gaming desk?

    Hmmm, interesting. Thing is with the GALANT desks, I was reluctant to find anything that would seemingly fit 3, 30 inch monitors but buying more desks, good idea. Though that Emperor 1510 looks great... Where do the speakers go? Hehe. =3 Thank you all still, if there's anything more, please show.
  9. A computer gaming desk?

    I've done my search, but I seem not to find a computer desk specifically for a gaming PC. I'm talking about a desk that could fit 3, 30 inch monitors and speakers for that matter. Does anyone have any idea or, anything at all where I can look into a company which specifically makes desks for gaming PC's? Thank you Regards, White0Wolf.
  10. The race of this woman.

    Oh wow, thank you very much everyone.
  11. Top 5 myths about google

    Oh God! We need Arnold Schwarzenegger NOW!
  12. The race of this woman.

    Thank you very much guys. Much appreciated! And if it's not too much work, the name of that outfit? T.T
  13. The race of this woman.

    I just wanted to know, what is the race of the woman in the black tight suit, blonde hair, does anyone have an idea? By my speculation, it looks like a KUN, though I'm not sure.
  14. What happens when you try to gank a skilled destroyer

    Oh wow, the way he disappeared was quite cool, but non-the less never underestimate your opponent.
  15. The 3 word story.

    It was a...
