Re: Upgraded A310 and software bundle for sale

Re: online rpg

used to play Everquest years ago like 1999-2001 - was part of a guild called Europa Tribes. Did the website for them. Crazy game, would have 30-50 players all logged in ready to do a Raid Boss quest - could take anything upto 6-8 hrs playtime to defeat it - lol :)

Re: Upgraded A310 and software bundle for sale

Hi Jon,

Don't really want to split at this time - would prefer all to go as a bundle ideally.

As Daniel says, my PM's are now activated - :)

Enabling PM's before the 25 post count

Hi mods etc, Newb question, but have had a couple of PM's which as a minor poster have yet to achieve the 25+ min to send PM's - can PM's be manually enabled per user before the 25+ limit or do i need to hit that target first? - don't want to appear rude to the PM'ers and not reply. Many thanks Gary...
