No problem.

Don't think he does deals cos he's already cheaper than everywhere else. If you want to get one that'll never leak I'd recommend the iTaste VV3 battery and an iclear 16 cart. Ask him for a go on one. They're a bit more expensive but worth it. Think he does the battery and two carts for 40-45 quid. I've gone through loads of different models but I've had this for about 7 months now with no complaints.

Go to St Nicks on Friday/Saturday and see Rob at Vapour Generation. He's pretty much the cheapest in the uk and he's really helpful.

I'm looking for BL2 players to loot with, I've got a Level 50 Siren and a level 45 Commando, but I quite fancy playing as a Gunzerker for anyone starting fresh.

I'm Jack Bastard (without the Welsh flag) on Steam.

Half this shit on the net that comes under "truthers" and "conspiracies" is actually just right wing propaganda, aimed at keeping the status quo.

A recent psych study showed that people who buy into conspiracy theories are less likely to be politically active as a result.

Also most false flag operations are generally not targeted at civilians, they are usually a pretence for military action.

I am actually a bit upset by this tbh. Great writer and a great bloke by all accounts.

Quote
The author's shirt says a lot. Unlike most of the chestware gracing the annual British science fiction convention, it looks quite at home in the plush surroundings of the Radisson Edwardian hotel's poshest bar - which is surprisingly posh. It is by any standards a nice shirt: rich cotton, well tailored, expensive. And it is monogrammed. The initials are not a plain "IB" for Iain Banks, the mainstream novelist whose short, sharp, shock of a debut, The Wasp Factory, has led to more than a decade of success and critical acclaim. Nor are they a more flowery "IMB" for Iain M. Banks, the name under which he publishes his opulent, galaxy-spanning science fiction.

Instead, the letters on Banks's pocket are "FTT". I ask him who he stole the shirt from, and he laughs with perhaps a touch of embarrassment. "It stands for 'Fuck the Tories'.

 LIGHTAH!

He's bound to say that in official interviews, he's on salary with the show. It's his unhappiness with the things I mentioned that are the reason for the new 'Clear' guy running things because the network want to keep him onside for credibility with the fans. Or so I read earlier on anyway, who knows? It does explain the high turnover though, and proper excellent shows tend to keep the same people running it pretty much all the way through (Mad Men, Deadwood, The Wire, Breaking Bad).

14  General / The Forum / Re: The Walking Dead on: April 03, 2013, 17:24:40
I didn't say main protagonist, I said main protagonists. I don't see any of them as the main protagonist for the same reason I don't rate the show; the characters are poorly written and realised ciphers that I couldn't give a fuck about. From what I've read Robert Kirkman thinks the same, and next seasons showrunner is the bloke who wrote the best episode so far ('Clear') so hopefully we'll actually have some grown up writing and characterisation from the show.
15  General / The Forum / Re: The Walking Dead on: April 03, 2013, 16:49:41
I like it. Unconventional. Not quite sure who you are supposed to be routing for, and that is the point. The situation makes humanity a very fragile and interchangeable concept.

Who else would you root for if not the main protagonists? The show is weak sauce compared to the comics and 3 show runners in 3 series is testament to how badly it's going critically if not commercially.
16  General / The Forum / Re: The Walking Dead on: April 03, 2013, 09:08:59
I've never read them. How much more to go is there?

Loads more to go but they've changed the story and characters a fair bit.
17  General / The Forum / Re: The Walking Dead on: April 03, 2013, 09:07:46
It's a fucking terrible show. Interminable dialogue only works if your characters are not ciphers and the audience are invested in what happens to them. It's like Heroes, as a genre fan myself I have no idea what makes things like this take off in the mainstream. The comics are great though.

I'm more likely to underclock/volt something than the alternative these days. Even with Chrome streaming flash video, Traktor playing 4 decks with keylock and fx on each channel and Borderlands 2 running my i7 (not normal operation, I just wanted to see how hard I could push it) it doesn't even get above 15% utilisation.

Funny how people always say 'stay away from AMD' with nothing to quantify it. There's nothing wrong with AMD at the low to medium end, especially if you're dealing with single threaded applications.

Your original build plans look absolutely fine imo. I just built a machine recently with the following spec -

i7 2700k
Asrock Extreme6
8gb Corsair Vengeance
MIS AMD 7850
Be Quiet 700w PSU
Fractal Design R4
Enermax T-40
120gb SSD + 5.5tb of spinning disks

It cost me about 740 not including the spinning disks. Having owned an Novatech barebones that I sold to my mate to buy this I'd definitely go for the R4 over the case supplied in the bundle. The R4 is the nicest case I've ever worked on. Combined with the silent PSU and the low-rpm, massive heatsink CPU cooler it's <30db most of the time.

It is pretty easy, once you've set the Virgin box to modem mode you just plug the cable from one of the ethernet ports on the back into the WAN port of your new router. The new one will pick up the IP address and whatnot via DHCP automatically. Job done.

Not sure there is a wifi version of that, that's just a switch, not a router.

Noooooooo.

How can you start watching something that you know is just going to get cut off !

Got caught up in the 4400. Cut just when it was getting really good
Terra Nova. Didn't get the second series.

I watched the first few deadwoods, really good but knowing the story wont close properly, nay couldn't do it.

I refuse to believe that the 4400 or Terra Nova ever got good, Deadwood's a league above them anyway.

There's more than enough story in Deadwood anyway without a 'proper' ending. The Hurst thing pretty much gets resolved and that was the major plot of the 2nd/3rd seasons. There's a reason people (me included) have it in their top 3 or 5 despite the abrupt ending.

As an NI product owner I would encourage everyone not to use their products or at least to not write off either solution until you've tried them both.

I'd imagine that there have been several iterations of Spark since those articles were written, Maschine v1 wasn't much cop either.
