    News First details of Sony's next-gen PlayStation revealed

    I'd read that article and must admit to being impressed and providing the price was reasonable would definitely consider buying one. Up until now I've preferred Xbox to PlayStation though I've only used a PS3. The current Xbox One X to my mind doesn't offer significant improvements over the...

    Summer of '69

    I dunno. It hadn't occurred to me to question the nature of the young ladies' apparel. They could be couldn't they? Tell you what, if you want them to be hot pants then they are - how's that? :) I posted these here as I take part in an audio forum and some members there have recently got into...

    Summer of '69

    Some old black and white pictures from my archive. These were taken one warm summers night in Fleet Street, City Of London. Here, I was undergoing my training initially as a ‘Copy Boy’ eventually leaving the agency as a trainee court reporter after spending some time covering the proceedings at...

    Borderlands free GOTY Enhanced upgrade

    Just played a 'quick' 4 hours :eek: and first difference I noticed was items are picked up automatically now when you pass over them, a la BL2. Inventory layout is better but can't honestly say I've noticed any significant graphics improvements. I was thinking about playing this through...

    Amazon are rubbish

    The conclusion to this sorry saga was that Amazon did not pay me in the time they promised they would. I let seven working days expire (which realistically works out to 10 whole days) and no payment so I logged on to Amazon Chat again. I was informed by the semi-literate Chat-person that I had...

    Flops' Friday mini blog

    Becky, I can't remember, twas a long time ago but I didn't take it seriously then and I don't take it seriously now. I do remember the glass moved about and spelled words out but dead spirits? Pull the other one, lol Collective consciousness perhaps. Who knows?

    TicToc TicToc

    I put all my 10 clocks forward yesterday (Saturday) evening and went to bed late cos I wasn't sleepy. Today I woke up at 13:00 hours :eek: I've become used to no work since mid February and have settled into a very unsatisfactory timescale. I mean - 1 'o' clock - no good at all, the day has...

    Borderlands 3

    Me! :D Borderlands 1 & 2 probably qualify for my favourite games ever with me having notched up 1330 hours in Borderlands 2, all in single player mode. Borderlands Pre-Sequel not so much but it was passable. I did catch this news elsewhere and apparently there will be be Hi Res graphics packs...

    Amazon are rubbish

    The trader who dealt through Amazon who I'd ordered my item from e-mailed me and asked what I thought and let me be aware of their after sales service so I told them what I thought. I didn't receive a reply. I have now deleted my Amazon wishlist and unsubscribed from their email list. Not much...

    Set up Automatic Unattended Security Updates on Ubuntu 18.04 or Mint or any Debian.

    In all the time I've ever used any version of the Microsoft Windows Operating system I can safely say I've never known their built in solution finder to work. Ever. However, there are good and bad points about Windows and some Linux Distros and when I see any and it's relevant, I will mention...

    Set up Automatic Unattended Security Updates on Ubuntu 18.04 or Mint or any Debian.

    Do I detect a hint of sarcasm in your reply oh Barbaric one? ;) What I didn't say was 'Granted, with Win 10 you get the updates whether you want them or not and if, by default, those updates are set to automatic Murphys Law dictates MS will reboot the system right in the middle of a...
