Re: The pointless push for 8K

To be honest, I think I'm going to be pushing my luck to be able to stream 4K content on our crappy internet connection, so I can't begin to imagine what bandwidth I'd need for 8K. I'd have to get back in to the game of buying physical discs again, a 4K/8K blu-ray player etc etc. Not sure I CBA. May...

Re: Coronavirus

I get they will be fed up of being asked the same questions repeatedly, but like the Cummings thing, they seem to lack any sense of self-awareness or care how they come across during this craziness. Media? Bunch of nobs. You could be Matt Hancock's support act, get the crowd warmed up before the he...

Re: Coronavirus

We watched a funeral on the laptop it's not good especially when it freezes and you miss the end. Its strange times indeed and I really feel for anybody who has lost someone they know recently and couldn't get to a funeral, console loved ones etc. That said, will we just assume that everybody has m...

Re: Coronavirus

Sorry for your troubles. Such an offensive thing to say to an Irishman, smh In a technical planning session I once used the term "the final solution" and a non-Jewish person took great offence. There was general bemusement in the room. And no, it wasn't a planning session about how to commit religi...

Re: Coronavirus

I think this, on top of the last couple of years has made me seriously consider getting the fvck out of dodge to another country or downsizing to the point where I can live in a wee cottage in the middle of nowhere to be honest.

Anybody else?

Which countries are less of a clusterfuck than ours?

Actually, this was clearly a dead cat strategy, so I wonder what else has been going on over the last couple of days which has been well and truly buried?

Re: Coronavirus

I wish there was a way for someone, anyone to call for a snap general election this week. No time for campaigning and bullshit, just a straightforward winner takes all general election (postal vote obvs).

Re: Coronavirus

Just like with the Scottish scientific officer, what's really boiling peoples' piss is that there's many, many people who've absolutely adhered to the instruction about lockdown for nearly 2 months now. In many cases that's meant not seeing loved ones... friends & family who are dying... going to fu...

Re: Coronavirus

There was also a small outbreak following a Nike conference in Edinburgh in February.... Can anybody see the government surviving once this is all over and we return to some sort of normality? Given the number of deaths, the response, the preparation and the criminally underfunded NHS, not to mentio...

Re: Police out in force

The roads were fantastically empty when I went in to the office a couple of nights ago. Much fun was had on the way back. I love how the article says... " Recently police also stopped a car driver travelling at 132mph on the A19 near Thirsk. Speeds of 122mph on the A64 and 117mph on the A168 have al...

Re: Talented Audi Drivers

Yeah, it was more the fact he did it one-handed while recording it that blew my mind.

He also just seemed to go for a bit of motorway "cos its wide", even though there's still joining traffic and isn't just one long massive straight.

Re: MacBook Pro 16” - accessories & photo apps?

I’ve just ordered a MacBook Pro 16”, my main use will be photo editing on a portable platform. What accessories and photo apps do you all recommend? I’ve already got a USB and SD card adapter so I can plug my DSLR SD card straight into it and I bought a case earlier. I was thinking of a Magic Mouse...

Re: Coronavirus

I think I'm coming round to the view that, at this point, there is reasonable cause for optimism that as long as most people are taking reasonable steps to reduce the chances of transmission, and the total number of interactions is low (i.e. few large, densely packed crowds), the path of decline wi...
