Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

I've seen this on various YouTube channels, and will definitely be getting it, although need to factor in the cost of stuff like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-Saitek-Flight-Control-System/dp/B01M9EWQ2W/ref=asc_df_B01M9EWQ2W/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310689469388&hvpos=1o5&hvne...

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

I've got a lot of money invested in X-Plane 11 and payware scenery and planes so I'll not be abandoning that anytime soon, but I did spend a quid to join the XBox Game Pass for PC so I get the basic version of MSFS2020 for "free".

It does look good. My i9 + 1080ti should run it fairly well.

I finally got my refund (via an MBNA chargeback) for my cancelled Easter holidays RyanAir flights today.

Re: Masks in shops

I don't get on well with wearing a mask becasue of my asthma, but it's not bad enough to claim medical exemption, so while I have no issue with the situation I'll be shopping out less than I would have until this fucks off. Which suits me anyway, because people.

Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

Nice one Baz! Looks the part that. I had my S1000R serviced last week -£150 including collection and delivery in a van (dealer is 1hr 15 away) can't grumble at that. I used it for a RoSPA tutoring session Friday evening, just for lols. Cracking ride out on the RT yesterday with my other half. She's ...

Re: Single versus two car argument

When I had multiple cars, and now I have multiple motorbikes, what I do is, I just buy them and get on with my life.

I did consider making a 5 hours youtube video about it, but I didn't.

Next week: how do people cope with two televisions.

Re: Idiotic tenants

They are indeed weird. I fitted a sign today, pink background with white text as per the 4 proofs I've sent her and also the paper copy she signed off on Monday. Got an email about 3 hours after fitting from her saying she thought it was going to be pink text on a white background. Words fail me. S...

Re: The amount of speed enforcement currently

There is more enforcement because it's needed - people have been massively taking the piss with driving standards.

As usual, people are stupid and ruin it for everyone.

There's no restriction on max size of the plate, only the numbers. So you could manage it a bit.

Re: New BMW 4 series

A UK number plate through the middle of that grill will take the edge off it a bit, but that is... challenging.

But then so was the E60 when it first came out.
