    You have a tablet contract, as in 3g contract? Is that not a bit wasted on you?

    Why? I do use it away from the house - in the car, in hotel rooms (though admittedly then you would just connect to the wifi), waiting rooms and other things. I don't really see the point in wifi only tablets, surely you want to take them around with you? I sort of view it like how I wouldn't want a mobile phone if I had to be near a bloody hotspot to use it how I wanted to - it would be useless to me, I don't live in bloody London or a city, after all. I live in a bloody small town (well, a small village now).

    Seems most people use them with the portable hotspot on their phone... though obviously some phones and some networks stop you doing that.

    I tried that with my iPad 2, but it required jailbreaking it and using other software, and I simply couldn't be bothered to do all that just to use it via my mobile on the rare occasions I needed to (i.e, when I was in a hospital without wifi or something). Far easier for my purposes to just have it work without needing to tether it.

    You needed to jailbreak it? Your phone just acts as any other WiFi hotspot. It shouldn't need any nonsense on the tablet. I have no idea what you were doing!

    I meant because I didn't think you ventured out that often so it seemed a bit excessive. I mean I spend 3/4 of my life travelling at the moment and even I get by with unlimited data on my phone with a hotspot. Fair enough if you are in fact out a lot though. These things are pointless unless you always have a connection and always connected really does make a difference.

    Switch off and go without. Lord knows the world won't end if you can't read Jezebel in the dentist's waiting room.

    How many of the really (like been here for a decade+) old regulars still frequent these forums? I joined (on my first account) about 2008, and there were already people saying "Ah it's just not the same. Gone to shit. All the good people left". I'm thinking this because I saw the word "blaze" and BlizeH popped into mind, it reminded me of 5 years ago EG.

    o/

    But not that many are still around.

    It's changed a lot but you can still chat shit and get answers on an amazing range of topics.

    The forum was better when it was hosted on a BBS and there wasn't all of this html nonsense fucking it up and attracting all of these information superhighway noobs.

    The forum was better when it didn't exist and it was nowt but comments, and you didn't even have to register to comment.

    Yep, this place was very nintendo minded and I was rooting for the xbox1 back then, lots of use of "M$".
    I actually was around the day they launched the forum, nicked userID=123, but deleted that account. But yeah very pro gamecube.

    I must admit, it was very generous for EG to put up that ticket selling megathread so all the newbs can post their e-mail addresses in the plain for spammers.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I could have sworn I'd put a message in the OP before warning people against that, but then again, if you're going to put your email address on a public thread, you probably deserve a bit of tasty spam :p

    I remember a nice guy called Otto, don't seem to see him any more, despite the immense time spent lurking.
