Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Also, "I'm not anti vax, but my argument for not taking the vaccination is the anti vax one" is not a great way to convince people that you are not anti vax. I've had all my vaccinations I've ever been offered when they have gone through years of testing. MMR, Meningitis, annual Flu shot ... so I f...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Unpopular opinion in this thread but I've cancelled my vaccine appointment. I'm not anti-vax and fully agree with them but my reasoning is I am happy to accept the risk to myself of Covid (about 1 in a thousand I think for under 40's in general and I'm in good health so possibly lower) whilst furthe...

Re: Site content and community revitalization project

I agree with Auntie, YouTube discussions and Twitch events seem the more popular options these days. I regularly will goon and just watch 10-15 minute video after video with discussions and history about characters. I watch a lot of lord of the rings ones where they will be something like "Where wer...

Re: Hey you old farts, I'm bored.

Shorts and T-Shirts every day for me now.

I think I've worn jeans about 3 times in the last 12 months (When I've forgotten something in the online shop and had to go outside to the real world)

Re: Dalek and Warcry's Endless Star Trek Thread

And since my last post the show has gone downhill very quickly

Season 3 has decided to expand on all the annoying bits.. I am starting to dread the weekly watchings though I'm invested at the moment so unable to stop no matter what direction it appears to be going

Re: Dalek and Warcry's Endless Star Trek Thread

I've been really enjoying the first few seasons of Discovery (I binged on it on Netflix). It has strayed somewhat from typical Star Trek series and seems to focus a lot on a few core characters with the rest being almost cameo in nature rather than an expanded crew as previous shows felt obliged to ...

If you know where I can get a cheap licensed copy of 2003, or a very cheap media-only kit, incidentally, I'm all ears. Copies seem to be thin on the ground these days. We've got about 1000 in work though I have no idea how many of them are not on a machine at the moment and also how much they are. ...

You tried looking for a copy of Office 2003? IMO far better than 2007 for the simple fact that 2k7 saves files in a way that is only compatible with other 2k7 users. ok, I know you can tell it to save the file in 2k3 format but you have to actually go in and change teh settings when you save it - pa...

To be honest it sounds like a latency issue rather than a download issue. Games do't really need fast download speeds so much as a fast response time. This might sound confusing but some fast broadband connections have slow response times before the fast download occurs. The best example (and most e...
