  2. Ah good old days. Bought myself a original sega mega drive 1 to relieve my childhood with classic old style games (had to order a HDMI cable to get it fully working though on my modern HDTV though) so got that coming and gonna order a special cartridge to stick a whole tonne of game files onto it and some joypads) can't wait to go all old school again :)

      There is rumours of a amiga classic coming out next year from the same company that made the C64 and the C64 Mini. IF that does happen and it's marketed right that's a very must buy indeed

      Ahh Mega drive    not a patch on Atari2600 though

      Lucky!

      Here were are looking down the barrel at 2021 and I get this after a Fibre check: We don’t have plans to upgrade your area yet

      For at least once a year, for the past 8 years, it will be say it's currently in the 'build' stage. A few weeks later it'll go back to saying it's not being upgraded, again.

      I desperately need a faster upload speed, 0.8Mbps is unacceptable in this day & age.

      I just happy the price increase not as bad as I thought it might have been (very affordable) gonna be trial and error plus now got tivo in my bedroom too so win win (along with tivo in my main sitting room)

      24mb for me from a 69mb price plan but I cable. 

  5. Question for you lovely lot (still need to set it up) but anyone heard of a auriol radio coltrolled weather station? I was down in bognor on holiday and saw it in the lidl there so picked one up (no idea if it's any good or not

    1. Despicable Weather

      Despicable Weather

      I have the handheld version,also bought from Lidl, have only had to change the battery once in the 5 years I've been using it. Is handy for travelling with and used daily, so far so good! Barometer and temp readings appear accurate (ish) and symbols for sun/rain have been accurate. All in all it's been a sound, cheap and handy investment *touches wood* lol Hope yours is all ok and worth it once you have it up and running.

  6. Wow! A pet dying is just as bad as a human dying. One of the dogs we had didn't make it last night ? at least she is with her mummy up in doggy heaven that's a good thing I suppose

      Yes, traumatic for sure. Sad.

  7. I wanted to say thank you to everyone for the posts and messages about what happened in my life. I'm going to struggle to get over my mum's death for a long time along with my family but we need to unite as one for her own sake. Going to be hell for the next few weeks months probably but we will survive this and stay strong

    1. lassie23

      all the best to you mate, here if you need us.

  9. Didn't want to do this but need people's thoughts. Turns out my mum may have had a massive stroke and might not make it. This is the most scared i've ever been in my life :(

      Her heart is not too good at all. All I know really just now. I'm in total utter shock and disbelief :(

      Awh.. sounds it’s come on very sudden a big shock know she is being cared by professionals who are doing all that they can. I’m sure your mum will not go down without a fight, is she unresponsive? Stay by her side she’d like that. I’ve been in similar situation with my mum I feared the worst she ended up OK I went all numb but you have to try. There’s always hope, take care.

  11. Nervous about how to say this. I know i've not been as active recently as I normally am only because i've been very busy with a house move (I'm moving into my own house at the end of the week) Been very apprehensive and scared but I've had brilliant support from a support team and my family (and I will be getting 300mb virgin media installed next saturday) very excited about my future albeit scared at the same time

      Thanks you lot for the nice words. Only a small 1 bedroom house but it's completely perfectly positioned for transport to the shopping centre where I am (and even if I can't be bothered can walk a short distance and got spar a chippie chisese/newsagents and the pub right next to it) ;) I've had this since september so I have known for quite a while it's the last bits of the jigsaw to put together and i'm good I think
