cool thanks i'm planning on covering my Antec PSU in Blue Tape to make it look Nicer :D!



hahahahhahaha, I remember covering everything in some black tape I thought OMG this is gonna look so cool. I put it together the leads were so thick haha brings back so many memories! I was doing it in my back garden for fun, my girlfriends idea originaly because she hates loose leads and stuff.

The leads went all sticky too, then I sold it!

Yes very bad lol, one day you're going to think about selling it or putting it away for another rig, then you'll take the tape off and have a horrible mess.

Haha typical girly girls, my GF moaned at me about messy inside a case, I was like ok you try. Being a smart a55 she decided to try and nearly cried because she got so annoyed.

Hahaha, I got on with her Mother really well, always had a laugh but one day she turned and said she didn't want her daughter to be with me. I said it was up to her if she wanted to, she said no and her mother kicked her out. I had to work so hard to get enough money, luckily I had a lot in the bank, still owe so much money though. Glad she stayed with me though :) <3, I was so shocked when she said it, and right infront of me. When I got with her she didn't know what to do so I helped her find out, helped her go to college and work things out. I then get slapped in the face by her comments and things she said. Ha, was funny though, crazy woman :D.
