    Wasn't it him that had the animated Av when only JPG was supposed to be allowed, from memory it was static for multiple seconds then had a couple of pixels change for 1 or 2 frames.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    I had no idea there was a sequel made to Another World. Problem is it's not all that good. It was released on Sega CD and later ported to the Amiga (high end machine required). Eric Chahi had nothing to do with the sequel (which would go some way to explaining why it's not very good). Also included a doco about the creation of the game, French with subtitles.

    What's on your mind?

    Win 10 becomes a lot more livable with ClassicShell and 7+ Taskbar Tweaker - though you can say the exact same for Win 7 (IMO they got the Start Menu right with XP and have been going backwards ever since). The annoyance about 10 is the notifications which are a royal pain in the arse and become slightly less so after tweaking settings, the spyware and upsell aspect of the whole thing, and the constant barrage of updates and unsolicited CPU hogging by what should be background processes. I still hate the look/feel of metro and the OS in itself is inconsistent there in that some stuff is metro based and other has the legacy look. Another gripe is that they took a whole lot of the customization away for the desktop vs older OSes. Though actually a bunch of what I've just mentioned in fact came to be with 8.

    Your mug, my mug, or everyones bloody mug ?

    Had a couple of chicken pies that vanished from the work fridge years ago. Re mugs, in an office situation I used to bring my own. Like many others it often went over a week without a wash. So I guess that in itself was adequate deterrent for nobody to borrow it. Often if I go out somewhere where it's likely I'll have a coffee, I'll take my own thermos mug. The problem I have with this shared cup thing is that usually they're of a pathetic size. I've got probably near 20 coffee mugs at home but my Parramatta Eels one is the goto as it's about 500ml in size with the next biggest nearly 100ml less. Standard sized mugs just don't cut it, and I can't be arsed doing repeat kitchen visits to make another cup when the first one can be the size I want.

    A bit long, but for the OMFQBBQ moment, tune in a bit after the 8 minute mark when he pulls and measures the capacitors.

    Throw flour between their legs to reveal the wet spot then slap 'em on the leg and ride in on the wave.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    My XBox One controller (genuine, not 3rd party crap) arrived today (Fleabay) - for my Apple TV, don't have any XBOne console here. $57.99 for a new one and only 4 days from when I committed (I'd made a $52 offer but there was no reply on it) Only downside is it's black and I'd wanted white. But a worthwhile saving given the best price in actual stores was $78 at Target. ed - well, helps if it's a Bluetooth one. Turns out I've ordered the wrong model.

    Kermit and Piggy - it'd be a bit like a whippet trying to root a rottweiler (with the relative personalities roughly matching the pair also)

    The truth is out there.

    FTL travel is likely possible. Either - wormholes, manipulation/folding of space, manipulation of local Higgs field to eliminate mass, plain old brute force thrust that punches through the barrier. Or something else. About 40 years ago we knew nothing of exoplanets, now we can practically tell what sort of atmosphere some of them have. So imagine the surveying capability of someone who can travel FTL - they could probably survey a radius of 50 light years without having to visit any of the systems, which would allow building up a life supporting map pretty quickly.

    17, you beauty! FFS, they need to get rid of some of the pre-race bollocks and start the thing at 10:30 to cater for the inevitable delays.

    What's on your mind?

    The start must have been delayed - I was out so tried streaming it through the phone. They had some other rubbish on, I guess to stop people out of the region viewing it. And the stream didn't work for me regardless.

    The race is barely a lap and a half in and they jump to a long commercial break. What a fucking joke.

    asus vivotab

    I've been using it for near 3 years on Macbook Pros. The problem is that it'll likely be of little use in getting another OS installed - it only scans for bootable partitions with OSes already installed.
