What Film have you just watched? 2016+

Although it got panned and the trailers looked awful I watched Ghost in the Shell and came away quite impressed with it, while it's a lot more shallow than the original and does admittedly largely omit the entire point of the original it does make up for it with some great visuals. They've done an i...

This years cycling challenge...

Signed up for my race although hopefully more for fun rather than a challenge, a seven hour race near Edinburgh which I'm doing as a pair. I've never ridden properly on the trail centre so it seems like a great chance to do so and near the end of May which should improve the chances of better weathe...

What TV series have you watched?

I liked the Glory Hole comment as well particularly when Bortus announces they are now entering the glory hole and Ed tries to correct him. Isaac's practical joke is one of my favourite parts so far from the start when Isaac explains that his 'eye' are just there for humanoids to be more comfortable...

What have you bought today - VOL 4

The laptop has arrived and seems pretty good so far, it's pretty much a silent, fan less version of the XPS 13 that's less flashy and with touchpad buttons but that's pretty much what I wanted and it keeps the excellent minimal bezel design which makes the screen seem oddly large at first. I bought ...

Old Rock user new system advise

Do you have the machine yet? I was checking the original receipt for my current desktop which turns out will celebrate its sixth birthday in April which is quite a shock as despite being a dinosaur in technology terms, there's not really anything that's much of an upgrade to it although it's had hef...

"Damage report?" "Multiple hull fractures, 9 power banks damaged and...Ensign Davis spilt soy sauce on his pants" "He put that in a damage report?" "Yes" "My god, we've got to get better people" I was in a bit of a foul mood this evening and the Orvi...

The longest standing unbroken gaming score declared impossible

There's been a few headlines over the weekend about Todd Roger's score of 5.51 in the Atari 2600 game Dragster being declared impossible and the score wiped from the scoreboards, while I hadn't heard of any of this it's very significant as it's the longest standing gaming record that's not been beat...

What you playing at the minute?

I was impressed with the weather and dust effects in FM7 with the rain coming down and forcing the car to tip toe round and in another race blowing sand across the track but I got bored of FM6 quite quickly and didn't think FM7 would be much different. I also didn't like the lootbox implementation p...

This years cycling challenge...

The advantage of the rigid fat bike is there's no excuses for stopping riding over winter, I had a superb ride up the Cairngorms just before Christmas and a four hour ride out in the snow under a bright moon before New Year. I had a pretty rough start to the year work wise though and annoyingly afte...

What you playing at the minute?

I've been hearing a lot of good feedback on the Monster Hunter Worlds beta so I retrieved my PS4 as the beta is annoyingly only on it despite the game being released on the Xbox One as well, off to a good start when I found the PS4 doesn't support 5Ghz wireless. Which is a pain as I don't have 2.4 w...

Fargo series 3 is now on Netflix for those that missed it on channel 4 which I'd highly recommend.

What have you bought today - VOL 4

59132 Assuming that just before Christmas still counts as “today” I recently bought a 55” LG OLED C7 TV. It’s rather lovely, still fiddling with some settings but pretty much set up now. No I'm afraid it doesn't count if you post about the purchase outwith the limited window, I'm afraid for failing...

Anyone watched End of the f****ing world which was on four and now also on Netflix? I've seen a few glowing recommendations for it but after a few episodes I'm not very taken with it.

What you playing at the minute?

I very much agree with you about Stardew Valley, when I first set my Switch up I felt a bit stupid having spent £300 on it, Mario Kart and Stardew Valley to play games I'd already spent many hours on already. However once I fired up Stardew Valley and got into it again, I was happy at that as it's a...
