    Good luck! Seems that Screwfix is a hardware store, it must be a entertaining job.

    G'luck! It's always exciting to start a new job. Soon enough you'll be posting pics of your new TV for us all to drool over.

    Gametester. That's just great. Way to get the job we'd all kill for. [​IMG]

    Is it just a temporary thing, then? And how'd you get hooked up with such a sweet gig?

    Actually testing isnt as enjoyable as you might think it is. Alot of checking for glitches and generally doing odd duties and reporting back to the devs that dont make the experiance the most fun.

    Seriously all it took to get the job was applying for it and filling out two forms for them.. Pretty basic.
