how much did you pay for the hardware, man? Singapore's still a relatively expensive place to get a complete, generic system.

All in all, I think about $1600+, US. :D Don't ask me where I got the money but I assure you I didn't kill anyone or something. :heh: Actually, my cousin helped me out with this one. He works in Singapore and he paid for the phucking shipping and stuff and I gave him some about $2,000 for the computer and shit. I dunno what he did with the $400 but I don't give a damn what he does with the money. I can't believe I have a brand new computer!!!:emb:

Well, I'm not employed YET:D , but I will be a year from now, hopefully. I'm still in college. Anyway, the money I used to buy my comp was game show money anyway.;)

I kinda ****ed up the 400,000 pesos question. :D I was second guessing and when I got the check for 200,000 pesos and Christopher (the host) revealed the correct answer, I was like "FUUUUUUUUUUCK MEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!"! :eek: That was my guess! Heh. :( When I got home, my family was like "You dumb shit! You should've answered it!". But then again, 200,000 pesos ain't so bad, right?:D Come Christmas, I'm thinking of getting a PS2 aaand the X-Box. :D :D :D :D

Who was known as the savior of Noli Me Tangere?

The answer was Dr. Maximo-sumthing. That was my guess. Dumb of me not taking any risk. SHIT!!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

Duda ko pag-nakakaanswer ka ng mga science questions, titirahan ka ng Filipiniana question.

can't believe you'd forget that, since you're still in college. :D i know it's that Dr. Maximo guy, but i also forgot his last name. :) but i know it's maximo.

anyway, it's a good idea you played it safe. better half-a-mil than a paltry 10 thousand, which hardly buys anything nowadays. :)

Hmmm.... now lets see, how hard do I have to punch you in the face to knock you out long enough so that I will have enough time to steal your GeForce 3? :D ;) :p :p ;) :D

Man, I really want to buy a new pc, but Brazil is not a good place to buy computer stuff(it's VERY expensive). And I don't have a job, also, so I still depend on my parents money.

Xeven, $2500 every year for a new pc? That's a damn good job. Where do you work?
