    Yeah, your poor choice of football team

    Wrt torrents; not really - give it a go, if it doesn't work then post what problem you have in the BT section.

    Welcome, btw

    Hello...come in,may I take your coat.
    Do you know how to decorate?
    Try d/loading something,if you get good speeds all is well'you may get a problem with windows firewall,turn it off and install a decent free one.

    All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in my post's are intentional.

    Sad but true. Sad because of the boring way that you, and Chelski, play the beautiful game.

    Okay, you don't need football advice - how about a loan of a comma?

    Yeah, that's a bit too slow. It may just have been a poorly seeded torrent, however.

    Kerio personal firewall has always worked well for me. The XP firewall is shite, you're far better off disabling it and installing a proper one.
