Just popping in, chaps.
Spurs still top of the league - check.
Arsenal still rock-bottom without a goal - check.
All is well with the world.
I can live with it at the moment, don't worry!
I've dm'd you re the email address though.
Thanks Robee. I'll dm you re the email address.
On the profile, you can upload a pic and you can edit your signature but there doesn't appear to be a way to edit your profile?
Apologies for putting this on here but for the life of me I can't work out how to change my email address that's associated with my account.
And come to that, I can't work out how to edit my profile either!
Any help would be appreciated.

I read last week that the last minefields from the Falklands War were only declared safe a couple of weeks ago.
Me and my footie chums go over to the Somme and Belgium every year (we use Ypres as our base) so I've been to many battlefields and cemeteries. My great uncle - killed at High Wood but remains never found - is commemorated on the mighty Thiepval memorial.
You can't help but be moved by the bigger cemeteries/memorials such as Tyne Cot, Thiepval, Vimy Ridge (Canadian), etc, because of the sheer numbers but I find the small cemeteries tucked away in the middle of nowhere to be the most poignant.
Give me a week of driving/walking through fields in the Somme over a fortnight in the sun all day long.
We were booked in to do a week in Normandy in July but Covid obviously put paid to that.

"a very big chance of St Totteringhams Day returning."
We'll see. :-)
"Possibly a little early as we may yet ruin your season."
Nah, didn't happen!

Agreed, it's sensational. I preferred the first series but the second is also very good.
The breast-milk rice pudding scene: I was actually choking with laughter.
Thanks Robee. What's one of those then?
Thanks admars. Picture is not great - understandable - but the problem is the controllers are not that responsive.
My son is now trying to pass his licence on Gran Turismo and then I'm going to crack on with classic Space Invaders.

Thanks for the response, admars.
It's model SCPH-7502.
Mine has a parallel I/O, a serial I/O, and an AV multi out. I've also just found an RFU adapter that fits the AV multi out port (exactly the same adapter as this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Official-Sony-RFU-Adapter-SCPH-1122/dp/B00BU0KP7M/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ps1+rfu+adapter+aerial&qid=1590060543&sr=8-2-fkmr1&tag=myrev09-21).
I've also got a 1mb (!) memory card in memory slot 1.
No scart on my TV. Here's a pic of the connections:
Does that help?

Was clearing out the garage yesterday and came across my old PS1 with assorted games. All that's in there with it is the power cable.
I've got an LG 65UK6750PLD (https://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-65UK6750PLD) with various free USB and HDMI ports, along with the coloured component AV-in ports.
Was hoping that someone could kindly let me know what cables I'd need to set up the PS1 on the TV and also if the picture quality would be good enough on a TV this size?
Thanks in advance.
"Am I the only one not buying this?
Yes he had it and yes he was in ICU where he said he was chatting to his nurses.
He was out again pretty damned quick so personally I think he's laying it on quite a bit."
This did cross my mind but I can't see there's any way that he'd be able to get away with it. Surely enough people in the hospital would know his true condition and a whistle blower would, er, blow the whistle?

So who saw them?
Looked pretty spectacular from Essex tonight. A train of fast-moving bright lights going across the sky. Currently around 360 up there with plans for 42,000 in total! Concerns that they will begin to block out the sky for observation purposes.
My record is 525 and I did that in the school playground with loads of fellow pupils trying to put me off!
Actually, it's a great idea to dust off the football and get cracking again after all these years, especially as I have a son who is fast catching up with my record!

Sheds definitely seem to be a theme on here.
I knocked my decrepid old thing down last week, forgetting that we had power running from the house for an old neon light in the shed roof and then on to the garage out back. So knocking it down ended up costing me £200 as we had to get a sparky out to bypass the shed but retain the supply running to the garage.
We also took the plunge and forked out on a full-size table-tennis table that we can wheel out of the garage on sunny days, which has already provided plenty of fun.

Maybe I won't bother with See now...
First episode is this coming Sunday.
I've watched the first two of His Dark Materials and am very impressed by the whole thing. Great production values and some excellent performances from the two main female leads.
This looks awesome.
Very silly question...
How do I subscribe to Apple TV+ (the new Apple subscription service)? Or, more pertinently, how would I watch it on my telly?
In Boots? I bought two packs of ibuprofen in there over the weekend using self-serve and it went through fine. Or is it different for paracetamol?
Should have gone to self-service!
Yep, I've noticed this as well. For the last six or so weeks, my local Tesco as well as the one I shop at in the city have been clean out of both of the own brand para /ibu tablets.
