What have you bought today - VOL 4

59268 Not exactly today but two weeks ago I bought myself an Apple Watch3 as well as a Boardman CX Team bike. Loving both of these so far. It is strange being on a road (cx) bike as I have not owned one since I was 14. Pretty much every bike I have owned for the last 20 years has been a full suspen...

What TV series have you watched?

It's a while since I watched Mr Robot but I remember my enjoyment coming primarily from the technical accuracy of the hacks and technology rather than the actual storyline.

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

Anyone watched Alex Garland's Annihilation on Netflix? It's generated quite a few headlines as it was made for the cinema as normal but the director refused to change the film as requested after the film did poorly at test screenings so instead the agreement was made in some territories outside the ...

What TV series have you watched?

59246 Mindhunter - very good, worth a watch if you like crime / thriller. I really like the pacing as well, it never feels forced as it seems that they have much more of a free reign to develop the story with as much time as they need, rather than a fixed length format. I thought it was a great TV ...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

27in 1440p is a sweet spot for me as you get a decent resolution but it's not too high that it needs scaling to actually use it plus for similar amounts of money you can usually get a better quality 1440p monitor. I don't generally take note of response time as like contrast ratio it seems to be som...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

I agree about not skimping on monitors but I'm not sure about curved monitors, if my current monitor died I'd probably go for a 34in 21:9 3440x1440 monitors but a lot of them are curved which I don't know if I want or not. I've looked the curved monitors but don't really see the benefit at least for...

What you playing at the minute?

I have had H3VR on my wishlist for a while but didn't appeal to me for the price, what do you actually do with it? I've been playing an Early Launch title called Deep Rock Galactic which is now available on the Xbox/PC (play anywhere/cross play) and Steam, it's a four player co-op where you play as ...

Sorry I wasn't meaning the 18th specifically, just that weekend.

What TV series have you watched?

Well sadly a TV series we won't be watching any more is Robot Wars as it's been cancelled: http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/robot-wars/news/a852486/robot-wars-revival-axed-bbc-two-after-three-series/ It's extremely frustrating in so many different ways but particularly because the last series was the ea...

2018: Techpond's 10 year anniversary meet!

Are we firm then on the 18th? It would be good to start working on travel arrangements but I don't want to book anything until we're definite.

Tax confusion!

Welcome to the forum Jared, I've moved your topic to this section where I think it's better suited. I don't have much expertise on tax although I'd think if you were drawing a profit from your trading then technically you should be registered as a sole trader and completing a tax return. If no-one e...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

59214 Dear Blog, That sounds like a great start, how much are you aiming to lose? I haven't been out properly on the road bike for months as I don't find it much fun riding this time of year as it's unpleasant going at speed into the cold weather, the conditions can be dangerous and unpredictable p...

What you playing at the minute?

I can't believe it's the norm these days to have awful rubber banding AI in racing games particularly when we have more powerful consoles and more core but AI in general seems to be taking a lot of steps backwards. The rubber banding AI has ruined a couple of serious motorsport games as there is jus...

What TV series have you watched?

Well that's Orville finished as well and I feel it's been a bit weaker the last few weeks with a disappointing finale. It seems to have wandered a bit too much towards Star Trek and less of the amusing side which made it appealing and the last episode wasn't just very Star Trek like but was ...
