My pi runs rasplex fine, the plex media server is on an HP 36l microserver (which also is a hyper v host).
You can use a pi for whatever you want, after all you bought it.
I might get another one to use as an additional plex client just to annoy people who think it should be used for educational purposes.
Anyone Remember the Conflict series?
Played these games with mates at university, whilst ordering pizza and answering the door without pausing the game.
Re: Timesplitters again ...
2 player co-op is where its at, the Lego games are the only games released recently that inccorporate this feature. Thrashing the other half on GT5 gets a bit boring but explaing to her that head shots are the way forward on Resi evil 5 / 6 is a great evening.
Re: What are we waiting for?
I've got a 1st gen Intel Macbook pro which doesn't run any recent versions of OSX. Still I only use it now for garage band unless there is a way for it to work with more recent versions
I've used the free logmein for about a year now at home and on the back of that purchased the pro version at work to support our regional sales people. This month I bought the LogMeIn Ignition android app for about £20.14, the most expensive app I've bought by some margin to support the company even though I only use it on 2 pc's.
This is a kick in the b0ll0cks for me and everyone else who bought the app.
Does GT6 suffer from the same fate as Forza and probably other upcoming games in that to get anywhere you have to spend more money then the £45 that GT6 is retailing at?
Although I understand that a recent update to Forza has made it easier to unlock new cars etc.
Can you actually buy this in the UK at the moment?
Re: Single player campaign
I haven't played COD:Ghosts but if you're saying that the single player campaign is better on Battlefield then it must be dire. I bought Battlefield and thought the single player was one of the worst FPS games I've ever played, the story was boring, the characters forgetful and the graphics a bit meh.
Played it online and it was alright but I may be the minority but I buy these games for the campaign aspect, the multiplayer is something to look into when I've finished the story. I'm struggling to remember the last few COD games story wise, the last COD games I really enjoyed was COD3 and MW.
Did Activision say they were done with WW2 stories now?
Re: Does FIFA ## still cheat?
Yes FIFA still cheats, there is the issue with switching players (switching to the one furthest away), first touches that the computer anticipates and the most annoying which is when you tackle the computer the ball bounces off another of your team mates and goes directly to an opposition player leaving them on a 1 on 1.

I was thinking the same thing, early 90's every week there would be a headline in the sun proclaiming someone to be a dangerous paedophile.
the doctor appears and is immediately arrested because someone has accused him of molesting them back in the 70's. The doctor is locked up under operation Yewtree, with guest appearences from Rolf Harris and whoever else I can't be arsed to lookup.
On the Cumbrian coast I curently live with 13 / 14 Mbps until I move next month to an estmated speed of 1.5Mbps.
Must download everything now before its too late

Yep I used that at college.......................like everything else, its not as good now
watching Clarissa explains it all and then doing a search and waiting for the pictures to load........
< of two evils
I always preferred Comet rather then PC world or Currys, as soon as you step in to our local Currys / PC world mega store your harressed by people who have memorised a script asking if you need help.
They continue to hound you even if you just walk in for a browse, in fact this comment has nothing to do with comet but to just point out that I hate the Currys sales method.

seriously through I bought a desire about 18 months ago as I wanted to try android (kept my 3gs) and generally did like android. The desire was well built, had a (from my view) better screen then the 3gs but the things that made me go back to the 3gs was that there was no OTA update to gingerbread and it kept running out of space.
So in summary I have tried both devices, I might pick up a one x when they have been out a while, but I don't think i am a fan boy, I just like to applaud when a company does something right and that on this occasion is apple. If you can name an android phone older then 2 years that is still supported by the manufacturer then I will be intrested.
Good to see a manufacturer supporting their older devices (3GS is coming up 3 years old).
Re: @Spanners & Kris..
My other half with her shiny new one x wants a phone dock like the iphones have - you drop the phone onto a port and it plays music through the docks speakers. AFAIK there is no device for android that can do this.
From your link it looks like samsung have a way of outputting sound out through micro-usb, excellent news but somewhat strange how no other company has gone this route.
Not aimed at Samsung
The main problem with Android phones at the moment is lack of audio through USB, the iPhone has been doing this since it came out so why has it taken Google this long not to adopt this feature? The other halfs One X has the usb port on the side for heavens sake, whats the point in that? We had a look at one of the Phillips android docks which can accommodate any phone by moving the connector about but you have to pair the phone to the dock using bluetooth!
The sooner Google get this sorted then the sooner android will have a lot more quality devices.
Our lass loves the lego games, just trying to get 100% on the 2nd harry potter one at the min. Best one was Pirates, graphically and replayability was fantastic, totally recommend those for family friendly co-op play. Next on the list is Lego Star Wars (not clone wars as it was not fun at all).
Been looking forward to this game ever since I saw it as a pre order on play, probably won't bother now.
