Re: I think we should become more European with this
I say follow Ireland on that list
Re: My flights
No idea on my first flight as that was on a RAF Comet
But a few years ago I went to Belfast from Birmingham.
Driving licence was taken but I don't think it was even checked.
Ferry to Ireland Fishguard Rosslaire - just drove on and off, get excited by 100 limit then told km/h not mph
Re: And we now why they called it the Xbox 720
I meant the fans, I called it the Nextbox myself
BTW the real One was a huge Pentuim based box with wired controllers.
Re: Semantics of the phrase "facial recognition"
Talking adverts can sod off.
I hate the bloody things.
I even hate those motorised ones which waste electricity with their motors changing the advert.
As far as I am concerned the whole advertising industry can die.
We used to have good ones (Hovis ect)
And we now why they called it the Xbox 720
As that is the resolution!
See we can all do it!
Re: Motorcycle Helmets
Funny but when I had a bike many years ago I never had any issues with crash hats. And I filled up many times without taking it off.
Re: Motorcycle Helmets
Reminds me I need some Walnuts
Actually the vouchers can be pretty silly and not used, but the points are always worthwhile, if there was something I wanted to get but not want Tesco to find out about, just don't use the card, or shop elsewhere.
Perhaps when they see the alcohol I buy they may think to keep it in stock, yes I do go to small producers (eg Westons) not mass produced syrup based rubbish (eg most big names) and I TRY to buy British.
When it is 5p off a litre I pass the vouchers off to collegues as I use LPG mainly.
But remember the shopper controls the club card data.
Re: Console for Convicts
Upscaling from 720 to 1080
Does it matter if the TV or the console does it?
It is still upscaling rather than native resolution.
Yes the XB1 is running at the same resolution as lots of current generation games.
Also 720 and 1080 are obviously different on my 46" TV
XB1 to me is not quite next generation, I am even wondering if it can beat this generation!
I actually avoided using Tescos for over a year a few years ago despite living near one. I refused to go in, and I let them know why.
They had stupid irritating TVs on all the aisles, staff hated them as well.
I think the slight drop in visitors helped rip them out.
Then their stupid trolleys with handles full of adverts. It is possible to snap them off!
Definately the best was to avoid the place.
Now to their petrol. Nasty stuff, my car runs like a pig on it, yet is fine on BP, Shell or Esso.
Re: BetaMax comparison hardly fair...
Apart from owning some 1980s VCRs of that format (still working) I have rarely tried to use any other sound track but that of the game itself.
With the quality and suitability of the supplied ones, it would be wrong to do it.
HOWEVER I did once try to use an external from game sound for multiplayer but it would not use it as I needed chat.
The music was the download of the games sound track.
Re: I would be interested to see if their censorship guidelines can be found online
Thankyou for supporting our language.
I see plenty of really bad English and about half the time I cannot even understand it. So what chance do second language speakers have?
I get sub human grunts as emails for Ebay sales, sometimes I ingnore them, often I deliberately misread them until they get it into their tiny brains that they need to write in English and not the written form of grunting.
Buying one for games
That is my main focus, my PS3 will not disappear if I stick a PS4 there, just as the PS2 still works, so why worry, DNLA will come along, I was surprised it was missing but no deal breaker.
So why am I buying one?
Well I like games from Naughty Dog and Guerilla
Re: "Massive" 300MB update?
Same as the X1 they are still finalising the OS and adding in features as they go, the hardware is ready, the OS was not, to make millions of consoles is not quick, so they make them then day 1 update
Dump film music, keep games, take TV HiFi Camera ect up market again and drop the cheap crap.
I have a lot of decent Sony stuff, none of it was cheap.
One of the worst LCD TVs I have seen - cheap Sony, best, expensive Sony, you would not think they were same manufacturer.
My 1982 portable video recorder still works!
Yes I am old enough to remember they were premium and worth the premium, they still have the odd product like this, but they have to stop competing against the Koreans and start competing on quality rather than price again.
They need to remember why people bought Trinitron TVs, and it was NOT the price
Well since the game I am most after is a PS4 exclusive I don't think so.
Then of course Naughty Dog
Re: Flat Earth
People have known since they first saw the horizon that the Earth is rouund(ish).
I am afraid that they are for my bits not my money.
Keeping money in pants - weird, could fall out through the leg holes. Not to mention who would want to handle money after it has been down there.
I sort of wondered
People mention multiple universes, could dark matter be that?
My personal idea is that dark matter and dark energy are not actually there, but are the equivalents of an adjustment to make things fit. Basically that spacetime is not fully understood.
But like most people I am waiting for the scientists to letus know.
How about 2 pubs within 1 minute walk
Or more like run.
Our office is on the back of a building next to one pub and over the road - another pub.
Great bit of evolution there
DW is not aimed at the Yanks but they are huge fans, they filmed there a while ago, that is as near as they get.
TW though, last rubbish series was co funded with a Yank TV company.
I bet those animal brothels burn well!
Re: Youtube broken
I think I like the Ogri method of dressing as a Policeman for fancy dress and ordering a scooter owner to dump it in the docks (AFAIR)
a) If you are a member, upload lots of soft porn breast feeding, literally anything like that. Complain if they are pulled.
b) Complain about ANY beheading one.
c) "Hello is that IWF? Dave here."
They are here
Can't view it.
But can't you just kick these Po's off their "coota". (Anyone understand this reference - you will if your children are teenagers)
I mean they are small and get called stinkwheels so lay into them!
All bikers know the only acceptable step through is the Honda C50/C70/C90 series.
I am not a prude I think
But the idea of beheading videos on a social network is just sick, I would hate to even accidentally see one, I would have nightmares. And I like action films, I thought Bad Taste was hilarious, I play a lot of shooter games.
But a few breasts, I see them everyday, why would they offend me?
So to censor a natural part of half the population (as an example) but to allow seeing REAL people getting their heads cut off, why is it allowed?
Facebook are sick.
I would be happy for them to end up on the block list until they grow up.
Re: Who the hell cares?
The hair doesn't fall out over night - usually if you're going to go bald you normally have some sort of warning via family members losing theirs too, basically you come to terms with it way before it's gone.
My maternal grandfather had hair until he died in his 80s
Yahoo are not even themselves now
Used to be a good search engine, the dominant one. Now they are down to using tinplate toy search engine.
How the mighty have fallen.
I used to like the flying sub
in Voyage to the bottom of the sea
I think Elon knows about Lotuses - look at the Tesla - Lotus chassis design
Re: Should I truly care???
Or a Toyota.
Or I use the Japanese model names where they still call them Toyotas.
Lexus is embarrasing, nothing wrong with Toyota GT86 or Toyota Supra. Same thing with Nissan and their silly poncy brand, it has nothing on the letters GT-R.
Err they are named after the region rather than the grape variety!
Re: I don't care about .....
We saw a mention of a Star Trek race, so of course we come and have a look.
But that is not a Cardassian so leave the name alone!
Re: I'm confused.
The only one I can remember the name of is Gul Dukat.
How is the girl related to him?
