What TV series have you watched?

I'm not sure if a feature length documentary should be here or the film thread, here is probably better. Alex Gibney has a new documentary on Theranos titled 'The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley' which is an HBO feature that's showing in the UK on Sky Atlantic, previously he produced the A...

I've only done a single Audax that had been organised up here although it was never run again which was a shame as I thought it was great, the atmosphere felt much more like a mountain bike event as people are there to enjoy the event and it's much more chilled out. The cycle round Loch Ness event i...

59492 I have just finished watching Sex Education. A brilliant series. Once you get your head around the weird 80’s staging but with modern people, themes and mobile phones etc. The writer has a love of John Hughes 80’s high school films. Well written and very funny. Loved it! What would you say it...

59495 Well sod it I just went for it and bought an A6000. Need to do a lot of learning and look at possibly getting a telephoto lense as well I was too slow in posting advice :) I think the A6000 is a great little camera as it's small with the 16-50mm lens (which I think is a great little lens desp...

What TV series have you watched?

No-one has picked up Doom Patrol in the UK unfortunately which is a shame as I liked their part in Titans. Love Death and Robots seems to have got a panning by critics but a lot of praise on social media, I've just watched it all and thought it was fantastic. The series is similar to the Animatrix w...

Comfort in the gentlemen's area is definitely important! How you are getting on now? I saw you were fancying a new bike for longer distance, how is that hunt going? I had a ride out on the mountain bike a couple of weeks ago which was in awful conditions as the ground was drenched and it was cold as...

59469 The good place! Just finished season 2! And it certainly had a few moments that I had my crying! But had me laughing out loud too! Great and well worth a look! I am mostly through Season 2 of The Good Place. A great programme although I would say Season 1 is much better than Season 2. It feel...

What you playing at the minute?

59476 Well I have been trying to get back into gaming on the XBOX and have mostly been playing Wolfenstein The New Order with the occasional bout of Forza Horizon 4 thrown in for good measure. After not gaming for 3+ years I am finding my use of a controller on FPS games to be nowhere near as good ...

2016- the year of VR?

I haven't been using my VR headset for a while and decided back in December to buy the wireless kit for the Vive which allows you to ditch the 3 in 1 cable that connects the Vive headset back to the PC. For a seated experience the cable isn't much of an issue but when using room scale VR the cable g...

What TV series have you watched?

Although I've heard nothing good about it I thought DC's Titans on Neflix was a pretty good watch, I never watched the original teen titans so I didn't have many preconceptions with it. It focuses on a teenager who is increasingly being chased by others and draws together several superheroes in turn...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

59472 Dear blog, Well I signed up to the Dulux London Revolution bike ride last week. A two day 300km ride around London in May. I am in Estonia at the moment but flying back home later and today. Will be going for a three hour bike fitting tomorrow as I need to iron out some niggles and make sure ...

What TV series have you watched?

I noticed Person of Interest was on Amazon Prime which oddly Netflix didn't have the final series for despite having the original four, the series was canned but the compromise was a fifth series half the length. It's extremely well rated but I thought it was quite rubbish as it had all got too seri...

Stupid Question - Controlling Fan Speeds

Have you had a go at this yet at all? I was on one of my PC's with a load of tabs on fans and cooling so was thinking I should ask.

Stupid Question - Controlling Fan Speeds

For hardware like that I definitely think having a lot of fans is massive overkill as none of it runs superhot so the heat shouldn't be too bad in your case. I'm running much hotter hardware and only have a few small fans and one proper exhaust fan which seems to work fine and mostly quiet.

Stupid Question - Controlling Fan Speeds

Nothing about your questions are stupid or 'newbie', good to see you on the forum. I'm very rusty on this as my desktop beastie is ticking onto an archaic seven years old which is a scary indication of how little progress there is these days but at the same time it's good not to need constant upgrad...
