    Well, given how mazda's tech is moving with the new engine generation, might be worth waiting to see what they come up with. It looks rather tasty and they might just replace the RX8 with something nice and shiny.

    Based on my insurance quote I may go with the ford focus my mechanic is selling
    £350, 1.6 Ford Focus Zetec. 58 reg but manufactured in 2001? dunno but w/e, seems the cheapest option short term.

    Actually probably a decent Focus tbh. Before they got all cheap, and sounds like a Euro 3 engine which will be cheap to fix.

    Go for it.

    And the hits just keep on coming as I ran into my landlord yesterday who told me that he hadn't received any rent payment for last month (my rent is paid directly to my landlord instead of being paid to me and transferring it to the landlord) which sent me into another pit of worry for the remainder of yesterday and most of today until I went down to the one stop shop and found that a flag from the DWP caused them to suspend my claim for housing benefit, and the only thing I suspected that flag to be was my annual JSA review which came through late December which took them long enough to sort out and reinstate the claim that a months payment was miss, but now everything has been sorted and payments have been reinstated including what wasn't paid.

    My landlord wasn't impressed when I told him what the cause was and what I suspected the reason for it was.

    He's now turned around and said (to my mum admittedly, as it's her guy) that the hyundai i10 one of his customers is selling may be a better choice. That would require a loan and with everything going on in my situation at the moment, that seems a bit much. Plus it's also only a 1.2 ;p

    Either way, I'll have a "new" car in about 10 days because thats when my 2 weeks is up for the MOT re-do

    And again the tides have turned

    based on yet more finances and payment options, the Alfa isn't a bad shout. Even if repairs could be expensive. The Focus isn't worth the insurance considering it's a banger, and the insurance is the same if not more than the Alfa.

    hmmmmmmmmmm
    i need to speak to my insurance.

    Every single Alfa I've known people to get has spent more time at the garage than on the road. When they run they're great cars but say goodbye to any money you're trying to save if you get it.

    Yeah, I am still alive.

    And I popped in to have a look.

    So many of you are still here. And the same for AUKN.

    Mixed emotions over this.

    The whole scene has move on a bit. Crunchyroll. Amazon.

    You are still here. Where other forums failed and died.

    I salute your endurance.

    So what has changed in the last few years? Do you all still meet up now and again at cons/expos? Is that strange?

    Are we all old should be reading salaryman mangas or is there something else going on?

    Hey Muu

    Yeh still a few Neo people around on here and AUKN, few people like Broken Serenity, Duoinchains and Max haven't been around for a while but still keep in contact.

    Neo meetups, not really.. Seems a few of us go to UK-A Stock and might meet up at conventions, would plan more but everyone is all over the place so transports a pain -_-

    If by Salaryman Manga you mean a tonn of Yuri :) /jk

    Hope you're doing well anyway

    Hey Muu.

    I'm still here from Neo days too. We don't meet but we have a little Neo group on FB to stay together :)

    Longest bout of depression I've had in years. My mind went really dark last week when a couple I was "friends" with in a group chat of a lot of us are in, took my ending relationship into their own hands, boots me out of the group chat, verbally abused me in pm, deleted me, slagged me indirectly on their own FB's. You would think they were in a relationship with me that ended as at that time, me and the ex was amicable and wasnt publically slagging etc. They shared all my pm's with one of them with the whole chat and everything. Some joined in the bitching, some didnt. Those who didnt are now in another group chat i've created as I'd of broke down without them to talk to. I have no friends here so online is my last solace.

    I have never met anyone who took business that isn't theirs, make it their own and then acted as they themself was living it. It's been a really hard 2 weeks and counting. With my head still sh*t I am constantly feeling a burden to those I've added in the second chat like they feel they have to be there. Some feel really sorry for me for what that couple did to me in our other one, making all my business i confided to 1 about, everyones knowledge. What wasn't shown was what i said about my ex, he agreed. Now they'll just think im a whinger conjuring crap up.

    Tomorrow is going to uber suck and I can only pray work is busy enough to keep my mind busy as I'm then gorging on pizza when home and having an early night.

    Well the fence sitters I added to a new chat still spend most of their time in the other one being sociable with those who attacked me so it's not great they'd still rather be in that one with them and my ex more so than me. C'est la vie.

    My life still isn't any better yet. I still love my ex but he's changing. The person I love wont exist soon anf whilst that's good for me to get over, it's still sad like. He's basically so polar opposite when it comes to "hurting" "missing me and us every day" "winning me back" and then his actions are still not choosing me, learning from why we broke up, and getting short tempered.

    I'm sorry your home life isn't what you'd want. My home life is all I have; my Mum and Brother. I stayed back at Mums for a good 5 days whilst I tried to get better.

    What Uni's you looking at?

    I'm sure my home life isn't drastically bad, at least compared to some stories I've heard. It's just been a while and its a bit of a negative environment which tires me out. I think I've been getting stress headaches lately too lol

    I'll probably go to either Sheffield, Manchester or Liverpool, not sure which yet.

    If you come visit Manchester Uni, give me and Shaun (Necro) a shout and we'll see if we free!

    Ah it sounds like your home life is like when I'm with my family over Xmas; a sh*t storm lol.

    I've been invited for drinks tonight now very last minute. I'm lethargic as f*ck and it took me 3 tries to successfully type out "been" before. I'm gonna be great company for her lol. She's all "you can tell me all about it" and I kinda dont want to as I dont wana remind myself how I got betrayed by friends and dumped by a bf who claims to regret it and is depressed as f*ck yet wont come and see me amongst some other tid bits that are even more depressing lol.

    Good weekends planned guys?

    Sounds like wev'e all had pretty tragic weeks. I spent Wednesday and Thursday completely fucked unable to stand up without passing out. Didn't eat for like 36 hours. Throat and tongue is still swollen.
