Maplin only just opened a new shop in conurbation I reside in. Really fucking annoying because they closed down the one a five minute walk away from where I live in the bargain.
Fucksticks. Now the only shops I can go to to buy electronics are PC World and Asda. That's like being forced to buy electronics from either Satan or your Mum.
I don't like the idea of buying electronics online, sometimes you just need to open a packet and see if the connectors fit. Sizes and standards change just slightly faster than the rate at which I need to buy new things, every time I feel like I've got the insides of a PC sussed, I go to upgrade something or build a new PC, and my graphics card suddenly needs to slot into something else that my motherboard doesn't have, monitors won't plug into whatever my graphics card has, hard drives don't plug into the the wires that plug into hard drives any more. It's a fucking nightmare.
