    Have you adjusted to the time zones yet? Are you getting settled in?

    Sort of, looks like I had a mobo issue in transit as I can't get my PC to post
    so working on sorting that so i can get back to my 'routine'
    also went to the SSA office today but they didn't have my A number in the system yet, I assume that's because it was a federal holiday on Friday when I was processed

    So I need to follow that up and chase down my SSN as soon as poss so i can get a permit and sit the damn driving test

    All this.. before running out of cash, lol

    Turns out my MOBO is still good, but the Quad Core is busted
    luckily I had my old C2D with me
    kinda sucky to be down 2 cores and 600mhz, but the CPU is half the price of the mobo, so I am sort of relieved :)

    PC is up and running so should be online a bit more now

    Glad to hear it was not as bad as what you thought, but that still sucks about the cpu. Do you think it busted during packing or shipping? I guess it would sota be hard to tell that though. So it is hotter here in the states then london? Or about the same?

    shockingly hotter where I am, glad the car/house/stores have AC :)

    Actually I doubt it was either, I think I got some thermal paste on the underside of the CPU due to a dodgy applicator blockage, guess I either didnt clean it enough, or the cleaning shafted it, either way its never good getting arctic silver on the wrong side of your cpu :)
