2018: Techpond's 10 year anniversary meet!

I'm definitely not changing the dates as I've paid for my flights and car hire :)

Cycle chat

Good call on starting a new thread. Definitely the right call to get a road bike for 100 miles on road as they are so much easier for long distances and more comfortable for the wrists as well as you've a few different positions you can move between. Also these days it's easy to get a decent road bi...

What have you bought today - VOL 4

I've a friend at work who has a Fitbit Surge and I've been surprised at how bad the materials are as he's on his fifth one now within a year and every single one has failed exactly the same way with the strap becoming wrinkled and then falling apart. That's bad enough on its own but what's worse is ...

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

I noticed Luc Besson's Valerian was on Netflix and was curious to see if it was as bad as made out and wow, it really is bad. The two main cast are just awful individually and the fact they're supposed to be a romantic pair I genuinely thought was meant to be a running joke as they behave more like ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
