RE: [VIDEO] The Book of Mormon (play)

got to wait another year now :( tickets still valid etc, but whole run has been put back, must be quite a logistical nightmare for the theatres, topuring productions. I guess it's easier yo move certain things back a year, rather than everything a few months, then maybe a few months again.

"(It's a sign of the times that we have to say the cause of death for a 94 year old)"

yeh, that's why I thought i'd put it in the title, as often these days we seem to be posting about celebs who have died too young from cancer, or more recently coronavirus related, it's "nice" that she lived a full  life and died peacefully.

RE: Audacity with microphone

does your pc have a mic, and headphone socket? Some these days come with one socket, which is used as both i.e. it's only designed to be used with a headset which uses one jack for both sound and mic. (confused me on a work laptop when i plugged in my old headset, and couldn't work out where I plugged in the mic lead!)

I'm not in windows at the moment, but isn't there a mic boost setting in the mic control panel?

i'll be at a windows pc tomorrow so can have look and fiddle :)

RE: Audacity with microphone

have you checked the mic works as expected with windows sound recorder?

i haven't used audacity in a while, used it to record some vinyl to mp3, took a bit of tinkering/following online guides.

Audacity seems to be one of those programs, it's great, if you know what you're doing.

RE: Whats going to happen with new film releases?

most films (at least Morbius, Peter Rabbit, and a few others) are being pushed back to next year, i think one of the Disney ones is going straight to their "new" streaming service.

Sonic is available "by other means"

RE: Amazon Prime

maybe they use the same search engine that this site uses ;) Sorry Rob

"Polyfilla is okay to treat an open wound right? "

no, you're thinking of super glue, unless that's one of those things if I was on QI I'd get a klaxon (which isn't a klaxon, but) for.

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

On the radio they were saying how the police need to start singing from the same song sheet a bit more, but in their defence it's all a bit new to them as well isn't it. I was speaking to a friend earlier who said her neighbours went for a walk, and came to a T junction, as they got there they stopped, to discuss which way to go, bad timing, at that moment, a police car pulled up, and told them if they're out exercising they should be walking, not stopped chatting!

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

well that was a massive waste of time :( 48% shutdown still

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

great, i tried that, still didn't work, and now the laptop is gettng used more with the kids being home it's a problem:(

I guess for time being they'll just have to use switch user, and not switch off/log out/restart :(

may have to see if i can upgrade using insider iso, put on fast ring, see if something newer fixes it

edit it's trying to do 1909 now, fingers crossed

RE: Coping with the lockdown

sorry to hear that, hope it works out well. I read an article the other day (I forget where) about someone 'resorting' to working for Tesco, they were surprised when sat in line for interview, there were ppl from all walks of life, diffrent jobs/ careers now out of work.

A couple of times I've been out of work Christmas time, I've stacked shelves in Currys, nice bunch of ppl, they thought it was odd I was there doing that, but when there's bills to pay, it's better than signing on.

I'm lucky, we had a meeting saying our part of business is ok, but others have been told use leave, or do reduced hours :(

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

Was your Tesco trip morning or afternoon? The checkout lady said last Sunday the moring was really busy, but afternoon empty. I guess it depends on location and other options nearby.

What We Do In the Shadows

season 2 starts soon :)

The New Zealand film, and US TV series was on over Christmas on BBC, we didn't get round to watching it until missus saw JoJo Rabbit at the cinema, so we watched the film and series 1 over the next few days :)

The TV series is slightly different it tone to the film, but they're both a v funny twist on the mockumentary/sitcom formula, and poke a lot of fun at the vampire mythology by using it to great comic effect.

season 1 is still on iplayer

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

just done weekly shop in Tesco, pretty empty, and first time in ages got just about everything on shopping list :)

Lots of peanut butter, soap, loo roll, bread, so I'll eat like a king tonight :)

No eggs, or flour, no tinned toms, bu they had passata,

So nice to see shelves are getting back to normal, post office style queue system for tills, but it was pretty empty anyway.

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

I saw an interesting post last night about that saying especially now it's spring, hayfever will start, so ppl will question every cough and sneeze even more :(

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

I got a bit worried when i had a headache the other day, then went to loo and had a wee, and realised why i probably had a headache ;) Guess I don't drink as much working from home as I do at work.

RE: Coping with the lockdown

yes, my local police force posted about stopping ppl sitting around drinking in the park as if nothing was wrong etc :(

PM Boris Johnson tests positive for coronavirus

Mr Johnson has mild symptoms and will self-isolate in Downing Street.

"He was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England's chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty," a statement said.

He will still be in charge of the government's handling of the crisis, the statement added.

The test was carried out at Number 10 by NHS staff.

In a tweet, Mr Johnson said: "Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government's response via video-conference as we fight this virus.

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

i played a bit of Sonic Forces the other day, "free" playstation plus game. It was kind of fun, no idea what I was doing, I never had a megadrive so can't compare, but this has 2d and 3d bits. I probably won't play it again, it was all a bit too fast, which I know is the point, but don't understand how I got an A on one level :)

Shadow of collosus was other game this month, which I'd like to give a go if I get chance.
