RE: [VIDEO] Wandavision (and others)

I loved Lost right until the end.
I was just thinking how amazing its gonna be cos they're gonna explain it all (they'd promised no loose ends....).
Then they didn't bother and the ending was what was predicted right at the beginning and the writers had said it wouldn't be..
Smoke monster wasn't explained either.

I played that game briefly, and you're right, this feels exactly like it!!

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

I see it first hand.  The amount of extra work teachers etc. are doing is mindblowing.  The stress they're under and amount of things just dropped on them (Heads too) is a disgrace to be honest.
There literally aren't enough hours in the day to provide the sort of things Boris is expecting and the mental health of many people on the Education front line is a real risk.

You won't get a PS5 anytime soon from anywhere.
If you do see one though let me know.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Si,
I haven't said you have asked for any posts to be removed so I don't understand the accusation.
My point was simply that you said you had issues with censorship ("I do have an issue with censoring people.") and yet have yourself said users here should not say certain things - which is censorship?  I totally agree with users not saying certain things too (and know well the fine line Rob sometimes has to walk here) and also believe there has to be some level of censorship - true  'free speech' is not necessarily a 'good' thing.
I completely believe that his tweets have been (indirectly) responsible for people's deaths last week - 100% and am glad Twitter took the steps to suspend him that you were not happy with and then took the next step of banning him - which I presume you're also not OK about?
I don't get much time to post lately and haven't read the last couple of pages -  so if that isn't true and you have said as much above then sorry about that.

Pretty sure you've asked for posts on this site etc. etc. Si?

"Yes but regardless of what records there are unless I had him by the neck with my phone in his hand or it was witnessed by several serving police officers a JP and the Archbishop of Canterbury It's 'Your word against his.'
But surely you've reported it to the police?  At least they could be given the number of the phone that made the booking?
I know it won't be even investigated probably but I'd still become a statistic personally.  Too many crimes 'lost' by the police without them not being recorded in the first place.

RE: I ******g hate people.

That's so s*** that mate.  Were you using it at the time?
Your photos etc. are all backed up yes (wasn't sure if you were saying they were or a 'don't mention photos...').
I assume you just use Google Photos so it's seamless.
Also your Conacts are all Google Contacts too hopefully.
S10+ is a more than reasonable replacement yes.  We got daughter an S20FE for Christmas that seems great too.
I just reluctantly replaced my Mate 20 Pro with a P30 Pro.  By such a long way it was/is the best phone I've had.  Sadly the newer 40 range don't have the Google Apps though.  Can't recommend them highly enough.

Oh, c***s!

Just finished Horace. Often great with brilliantly observed humour. Sometimes sooo frustrating too.. From just two guys I think, a lovely 'Thank you' on completion.

RE: Windows 7 RIP

We're moving away from M$ Office in work and are now using G Suite (Google).
Compatibility for most docs (i.e. most 'normal' users) is fine - it's only more complicated docs (esp. Excel (where you could argue it should really be in Access anyway...)) that compatibility can be an issue (like VBA, Macros etc.).
You may, entirely at your own risk....... look at Ebay..

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

On a serious note though, what are our MP's actually voting on? I assume they're voting on the contents of a many hundred page document that it now appears to contain references to things that simply don't exist anymore? Any others?

RE: [VIDEO] Wonder Woman 1984

So shocked and gutted at how bad that was.
It should have been 80's all over with a great soundtrack and funny set pieces yet there was a bit of FGTH and that was pretty much it. Even a scene with a group of dudes breakdancing had opera playing as the soundtrack.
I'm not even sure there was an editor, it was so poor - I'm thinking of a few pointless scenes in particular, especially when they escaped in the 'invisible' plane and her flying through the clouds..
Really enjoyed the first one, sooo disappointed with this one.

RE: Merry Christmas Everyone!

Happy Christmas everyone.
You'd hope 2021 will be a whole lot better than 2020 but with Brexit who the f*** knows?
Boris's understanding of a 'free trade' deal is certainly not aligned with business' so let's see...

RE: What Christmas movie will you be watching today ?

We watched it last night.
Loved it again obviously.
Enjoy admars..
Glad you enjoyed it Rob.
Will Ferrell is just perfect and to be honest I don't see the issue with the Caan casting either.
So many laugh out loud moments.

"The issue with this game is that they should have scrapped the old gen console versions and focused on the PC."
I don't think that was ever going to (or should have) happen(ed).
The problem is the PC was the lead platform and the others have taken an obvious backseat.  They have constantly misled the public and hidden things - none of the issues can be a surprise to them.  They should have probably held back those versions until they were ready.  As long as all of the delays have been, most gamers would rather have a quality product late than the awfel mess they foisted on thme now.
The issue for me is with the developers themselves.  In the hands of decent ones, we've seen what the likes of the PS4 is capable of.  Last of Us 2 is incredible - but even the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn from a good few years back run superbly.  This is an absolute mess.

RE: So... what are you playing just now?

CD Projekt have apologised for it on PS4 and XBox One and are offering refunds!
I was reading the Release Notes for the last oatck (1.04?) and it's obvious the flame was released on these formats at least in a pretty much unplayable (and certainly un-completable) state with the mindset to fix it after they've been paid.
