    Nothing at the minute. Going to go pick up some Body Shop gifts for people and have a quick squidge at 5X in CPW, but I won't be buying that today.

    Probably going to pick up a bottle Jim Beam but that's a personal purchase

    Re: QOTW: What did you buy on Black Friday 2015?

    1. Pre-planned presents for Christmas that I thought I would wait to see if I could get them cheaper this week before ordering. Success for boy (bike), partner (box set, garden stuff), father (whiskey). Amazon

    2. 1TB SSD that I had been planning to get for the MacBook to replace the crappy slow HDD. £150 eBuyer

    3. Accidentally 500mbit home powerline ethernet because I've given up getting decent wireless in the loft room. And a switch to go with it.

    Sod the "avoid black friday" people. Just have a plan, and keep to it, don't get sidetracked by frivolities. I would have bought these things anyway, this stupid event just means I pay less, and the retailer loses more. Their problem.

    I gave into a 480GB ssd for £80 and a camera lens for my phone £7. Steam sale is in the back of my mind though...

    Not bought anything at the moment, but seriously considering going for one of those Scan BF deals. To be honest (a) I'm not impressed with this whole "Black Friday" nonsense (another pointless US import we could well do without - like televised pre-election "debates"), and (b) none of the deals have particularly grabbed me.

    Actually in the spirit of hating Black Friday, I think I'd be more amenable to going for one of the sensible retailers/etailers who have decided to have a Black Weekend, so Friday extends through to Monday. This, in my humble opinion, is a far better way to do things.

    EDIT: Decided to plump for the Haswell-E that Scan had in their BF deal, so I should be getting a nice new 5930K in the post on Tuesday. Along with an Asus Strix GF970 video card - and yes, I do know that there's another £20 off via Asus cashback on that. My old 7970 is making strange noises and Just Cause 3 "ships" on Tuesday.

    Re: QOTW: What did you buy on Black Friday 2015?

    Sandisk + SSD reduced from £51 to £37 or that sort of figure. Something I had been thinking about for a while, so it was an opportunistic buy. (I bought another earlier this week, the Samsung EVO, also from Amazon)
