    Am I old enough to work?

    It'll be my one-year anniversary of living in Australia on April 28th, and I thought I would've accomplished a little bit more than I have. Yeah, I've made friends and settled into school rather well, but what I really wanted to have by now is a job. My resume is all ready finished, but the next step is rather vague. My birthday is November 28th 2000 which makes me 14 years and 3 months old. All I need to know really is: am I old enough to be employed? If anybody knows or has previous experience in this sort of stuff, it would be great to know! I live in QLD by the way, I have no idea if that factors in at all. Thanks ~CP

    Gaming PC (Part 2)

    After careful consideration on PCMeals eBay page of a PC gaming computer, I noticed that I needed to buy Windows 7 for it, as well as the PC itself. I then looked into eBay a bit more, and found this: http://tinyurl.com/kd75uqt I think this computer might be better for me because it looks sweet and it does everything I need it to do. Not to mention, it also comes with everything I need at the right price. All I need now is to know, will this run 'Minecraft' and 'BioShock Infinite' at a high FPS. If you can help, it would be great. Thanks, CP

    Gaming Computer

    Also, if anyone can help with my next problem, I now, after choosing a computer, have to find a monitor. I have to buy a monitor for about $37-$50. Thanks ~CP

    Hey, So, just wondering how school works here in AUS. Like, what grade do you graduate, what are the schools called, Middle school, High school, Secondary school, etc. etc. Just basic info. Considering I've come from the US, I may need to know as much info as possible. Ta C.P.

    Gaming Computer

    I just moved to Australia with my two parents. They promised they would help me through the migration and help me stay sane. I've looked forward to the move to Australia, and now that I'm here, my main priority is to get a computer. You are probably asking yourself, "Challis, how the heck are you typing this post without a computer?", well, I am on my old laptop. I'm not looking for a computer like THIS. I'm now looking for a gaming computer. Considering this is my first post, I don't expect to get an immediate response, but the sooner; the better, I suppose. I'll post the stats I'm looking for down below, just in case you're a nerd who knows how to help me out. P.S ~ I'm on a budget of about $700. P.P.S ~ The two games I wish to mainly play are, "Bioshock Infinite" and "Minecraft." P.P.P.S ~ I'm looking for a brand-new computer, not used. Thanks... OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64-bit Processor: Quad Core Processor Memory: 4GB Hard Disk Space: 30 GB free Video Card: DirectX11 Compatible, AMD Radeon HD 6950 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Video Card Memory: 1024 MB Sound: DirectX Compatible These are the "Bioshock Infinite" game MAX requirements, so a little less is fine...
