    hehe you Queensland people are funny :)

    I think Redman was surprised by the fact you had lights on during game playing? I turn mine down low to play for better rice. (I suggest you might like to use a lamp if you are dimmer challenged) :D

    From my office chair, where many a staff memeber has come to grief bowed on one knee, :) I reckon you've done your part. No to heavy curtains unless they buy them.

    Also, her having a peek through the window to check a disturbance is fine, it's called being neighbourly. Snoop also comes to mind, though.

    I'm not sure I understand this but please no explanations, I'm sure there's too much information already. And don't talk to me about context - a quote is a quote :)

    hehe, if one baits a line and casts; one is hopeful for a bite at least :)

    I thought this whole conversation was based at night, sun don't shine that much then you know, even if we HAD daylight savings...
    What do you have the light on for?

    I live in a aparment complex where my computer / lounge room is right next to my next door neighbour's bedroom as well.

    I have never had a compliant about the noise from neighbour re TS or game sound at night.

    Trick is

    1. Become the head of the body corporate (in my case, a company tiltled unit ==> chairman of the company)

    2. Create a lot of diversionary fire! aka Rev the neighbours up and set some neighbourly fire (all my neighbours hate each other to death and thinks I am the only one holding the whole building together.... its great how a little 'misinformation' can do)

    3. failing all that, get a really LOUD girlfriend / partner and convince your neighbours its MUCH BETTER for you to play computer games all night rather than staying in your bed room. :twisted:

    from experience...

    a cheap doona/blanket (K-Mart or BigW) $20
    added bonus of being able to use it for its
    actual purpose when you leave the rental property


    will MORE than sufficiently block light form ANY source :!:

    if it is tacked to the Architrave....
    in the right place of course

    Not once have I been pinged for this in over 5 different rental properties...
    they dont check the blind architrave edges for pin holes :wink:

    If they have light problems then they need
    to modify their living space...
    ! NOT YOURS !
