CityLink Not Delivering by mrjolly
I bought some bits from Ebuyer, and I paid for their 'Standard Delivery' which apparently takes about a week to deliver. I was told that the delivery was today, so stayed in *all* day. I did not go out once. At about 5pm, I received an email from Ebuyer informing me that I had...

Thinking of buying from overclockers? You may want to think again... by J S
Take a look at their forums. Search for posts from the owner of OC UK. If you have ever ordered from them and are black, jewish or homosexual, or in any way disapprove of hitlers policies or those of white supremacy groups, you may possibly feel a little bit sick to the stomach for having...

Never buy from PC World by Adam
Hi Everyone I thought I should warn about the total lack of respect for customers' statutory rights that seems to exist at PC World. I bought a KVM switch from them a few weeks ago, and it worked fine at first, so I didn't bother keeping the receipt. However, earlier today, it stopped working, so...

Are Computer Fairs all crap? by Alec
For the first time in 10 years I've gone to a computer fair at a local hotel. Had to pay 2.50 just to get in. I was pretty underwhelmed by what I saw. Stalls selling copied software (illegal surely?), secondhand parts wrenched from old PCs and Macs, under-spec PCs with flashing coloured lights...
