What TV series have you watched?

Well finally watched the second series of Luke Cage and thought it was pretty poor, it starts off slow, never really builds up and then fizzles out at the end. I thought Mariah Stokes/Dillard was just awful and given how much she's in the series that's a real frustration. Her daughter spearh...

This years cycling challenge...

I think you'll find a century on the road bike relatively easy given you've done much tougher endurance runs on the mountain bike. I find the mountain bike can be challenging for long cycles as it's hard work to keep it going (although I do run very low pressures) which makes it tougher as you get t...

What TV series have you watched?

The ghost nation episode was definitely the highlight for me as well I thought the actor was extremely good particularly when he finds his wife in cold storage and can't revive her it actually felt quite upsetting and made you forget these are just machines. I also liked that it filled in some o...

What TV series have you watched?

Don't forget you have the Punisher as well! Pacing is a real issue with these series and I feel it's getting worse as I thought the Punisher and second series of Jessica Jones were particularly slow going. I did think initially these Marvel TV series were very good aside from some oddities (particul...

What TV series have you watched?

I've been keeping an eye out for Archer on Netflix but it's not appeared yet. Although I'm not sure about the second series of Westworld I will admit I'm keen to see what happens on Monday and been freeze framing the trailer to try and pick out details. I'm guessing the black bars the same as th...

What you playing at the minute?

With the reduction in the Xbox Game Pass to £23 for six months I thought it was a good chance to give it a go as I was looking at buying Super Lucky's tale for £12 plus it supports the play anywhere titles so I could play a few of them on the PC. However I didn't play Halo Wars 2, Sea of Thieves or ...

What TV series have you watched?

Aside from Westworld I'm not really watching much on the moment and was randomly browsing Netflix and thinking I've not been watching much on there for a while, any recommendations for new series?

What TV series have you watched?

The Sens8 finale is up on Netflix now which feels much like Serenity as it finishes the Sens8 storyline but obviously it has to abandon all the carefully built up plots and focus on the secretive nasty agency one. However accepting that there were going to be more series it's definitely good to have...

Intel show off 28 core processor at 5ghz

I can't see any function for these processors for gaming PC's or consumers apart from for boasting, it's easy enough for both companies to effectively rebadge their server processors. I don't see what Intel was doing is any worse than AMD as both are pointless products aimed at getting headlines. Th...

Intel show off 28 core processor at 5ghz

There's been a lot of criticism of what is just a publicity stunt but I quite like it for how ridiculous it is: https://www.anandtech.com/show/12907/we-got-a-sneak-peak-on-intels-28core-all-you-need-to-know Although Intel is promising a Q4 release for this processor it seems unlikely, what it appear...

What you playing at the minute?

Oh wow, my own forum screwed up and wiped a long reply. Been trying to play Project Cars 2 but it's such a frustrating game, it's fun for a short while but it's so ridiculously punishing it puts off further play. The new Le Mans pack is out and I headed out onto the famous track with the hybrid Toyo...

I gave up a couple of episodes in and didn't seem worth the hassle getting back into it.

What have you bought today - VOL 4

Summer is definitely here at the moment, on one hand it's great to have bone dry trails with lots of grip but it can be quite a killer riding in this heat. I decided to treat myself to a Logitech Craft keyboard as I've been looking for a new keyboard with laptop style keys and backlighting without a...

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

Annoyingly the nice local cinema is not showing Deadpool 2 but I think I might breach my self imposed ban on Vue this time to see the film. I'm not sure what to think of Solo, I'm really not keen on the idea of it at all and it's getting lukewarm reviews. I thought Rogue One wasn't bad but ultimatel...

Topping MX3 - Desktop Ammplifier

Headphone amps do make a lot of sense as a lot of standard devices don't have the power to drive bigger headphones (I have some headphones only more specialist mp3 players can drive, the likes of mobile phones don't have a high enough output), I can also see the benefit of combining that with a USB ...
