I would rather buy some keto, if you know what I mean.

Just don't eat, eventually your body will go into a state of ketosis, without any silly dieting pay outs!

just remember ketosis is a mild form of ketoacidosis, which is an extremely severe complication of Type 1 Diabetes, the keto diet or forcing the body into a state ketosis may cause severe side effects, inclduing death. Always consult your GP first, do not attempt any sort of keto if you have any major illness, especially diabetes. I am saying this because the diets don't.

Did you make your first post in roughly half a year just to brag? It's worth it. :bow:

I found these to be genuinely exciting. I was rooting for the Chocolatiers the whole way!

Well, this is odd. My USB keyboard has died after like 10 years of service. So i have had to switch to an ancient, absolutely ancient HP PS/2 keyboard. Easily over 15 years old.

Odd thing is, this baby has better rollover support than my USB keyboard, and it seems to appear on the screen faster than my USB one. It's like Windows is acticvely going "the keyboard, it needs me!" instead of "i've got things to do, add it to the todo list".

Not sure how much of this is placebo though. It genuinely does feel a lot snappier to use!

For research purposes!

Imagine you have bought something for a fairly low price point online (let's say under £15 / €18 / $20) and you are dissatisfied with the purchase. How would a perfect return flow work when interacting with that company for a refund? Do you expect them to pay for the return despite the low price point, or do you expect to pay for that yourself, or perhaps you expect that the item does not need returning at all? What happens after returning it? Tell me all!

If the error was with the product, say it was faulty on arrival, or not entirely as sold. I'd expect the company to pay for the cost of returning it, as it is their own error.

If the item is fine, i just changed my mind or was unmoved when i saw it, for that price, I'd probably just put it to one side and forget about it, or maybe try to flip it online, usually on eBay or Gumtree.

Sorry I've been a bit quiet lately - my wife has been busy giving birth to another (hopefully) future TTD player! :D

Congratulations!
We've recently added to our family too, a 2nd daughter, she'll be 4 months old on Monday. Interestingly, it's been about 4 months since I had a good nights sleep or had any time for anything!
