Re: The Cricket Thing.......

I've been getting James's mea culpas as well :P. I wonder how much grovelling he's had to do with Channel 9 vis-a-vis the TV rights?

Re: Humble Bundle thread of charity, deals and stingy Windows users

Another interesting Jumbo Bundle, although at this stage only Orwell is grabbing my attention. Obduction is as well, but at that top tier price I may just wait to see what is added to the bundle next week...

Makes sense - produce a big ticket item (as if they needed to :P) to pull even more customers to their Netflix competitor.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Ironically, we had a (staff funded) morning tea at work this today where a lot of food was left over. I went to get a piece of sponge cake after lunch and the whole thing is gone now. The scabs even left the empty container. No wonder public servants gets so much flak. To be fair, I think this is a...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Started planning for a European vacation in July. Got to spend some time with the in-laws in Finland, then I'm hoping to do a bit of a trip across northern Europe (Stockholm-Copenhagen-Amsterdam) before returning home. I want to head to Japan in late April 2019, but it's a bit early to start planni...

Re: PC powers-down the powers-up again on startup

Or even just a good dusting with a can of compressed air - mine was doing something similar recently, and a good clean out, and reseating RAM/GFX card did the trick.

She looks like fun - some of the better bits and pieces from other heroes. Plus some interesting mechanics in her own right, like the way some abilities are refreshed.

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - January 2018

Steam controller for $60 from the Midland EBGames (managers special) - a hide cheaper than the US$49 I'd be paying elsewhere. I swear I saw on OzB that it was $29 for a steam link + $20AUD Steam gift card... Which sounds like what the guy at the counter tried to upsell me on, except I have no use f...

Been playing Quantum Break this weekend - until about 2/3 through - just now - after having to rerun about 5-7 minutes of the game due to what is apparently a couple of missing checkpoints that arent activating right before a boss battle. Time to visit something else :|

Check the world map - do 4 for a faction that is listed as active there and get a bonus cache at the end of it.

Kids and stuff mean I can'[t really commit to a raiding schedule or anything. I'll usually do new raid content etc once on my main through the Looking for Group thing for the story content, and then leave it, and go back to levelling alts/HotS :P

While I dont mind the current chair that Im using for my gaming PC, it is getting on a bit, so I thought a new gaming chair I dont have to actually pay for would be a good idea.
