Re: 5g

There’s been a few videos on this in the US. The ones I’ve seen from respected tech bloggers show that if you’re standing right next to a cell tower in the street, you get crazy fast download speeds (albeit your handset is nearly on fire). The minute you start to walk away from the mast, speeds dro...

Hereditary:

9/10 horror, Toni Collette is brilliant.

Just appeared on Netflix. Guy who did Midsommar's first feature. Terrifying IMHO 😆
Just watched this. Very good. Would strongly recommend. Nice to watch a horror that isn’t just full of jump scares

Apart from one twat who had the mask with his nose hanging out It's incredible how flat out stupid some people ...

Re: Road work speed limits

Maybe this means that they’ll be able to raise the limit from 50 to 60 where sensible?

I really want a manual winding watch, I don't even know why. I think maybe it's something old school and mechanical in an ever more digitised world... must be getting old.
I enjoy winding my watch. I think it makes me appreciate the watch a bit more, and appreciate the mechanical bits inside

Well that's shit :cry: :cry: Had a friend have a brain aneurism a while back but she survived - forever changed though due to damage done. Also had a friend who had one, when we were in year 8 (12/13 years old). Apparently he actually has a second bigger one about to pop in his brain too, which the...

I expect they can’t make them compulsory until they are confident they have the stock to supply everyone, however they still want people to wear them if possible in the meantime.
Interesting take. I didn’t consider that. Seems reasonable

I just can’t see the point of the Grenadier. If LR couldn’t make it work, why could this new company, design a Defender, tool a factory and make profit?

What's up with this plate? I don't think I've seen one like it before.

What Rich said. It's not as if Intel, Microsoft et al will be doing nothing for the next 6-12 months.

If their current silicone is anything to go by, their desktop and laptop stuff should be incredible.

Anyone got (and used) a BBQ pizza stone?

I’d like to see your results
Yes, I posted about it on here. Not impressed; the heat you’ve built up is let out by lifting the lid to put the pizza in.
Interesting

They send you the ingredients (dough ready made etc) and instructions and they’re supposed to taste just like their restaurants pizza. You put the dough into a searing hot pan for a minute then another few mins in the oven. I was pr...
