  1. Same. Caught me out. Even knowing it doesn't help. That blonde hair really changes him. And not for the better. Overall, fantastic series. Over way too qucik.
  2. I made your meatloaf yesterday. It was an interesting experience. I'd say i followed about 80% of the recipe, with some variances around the bbq sauce - using a little too much of the left over Elovia bbq sauce from last summer. I had no soup, so used a stock cube, but probably too much water in it. All in all, the resulting mix was too sloppy to form into a loaf very well. It sort of collapsed a little in the oven. I also used mozzarella cheese instead of colby, as it's a very good melting cheese. I also covered the loaf with streaky-bacon in strips, rather than a lattice. Mostly because i was behind time and my way took about 15 seconds. Myself and my wife both enjoyed it. My son didn't love it. There was loads left over, so i had it for lunch today with some noodles. Tonight, i chopped the remainder in a medium chop - not too fine, maybe half inch pieces, and rolled it up in wraps/large tortillas. Placed the wraps in a baking dish and covered it with a large jar of bolognese sauce. Then baked it in the oven at 180c 360f for 30-40 mins. We all really enjoyed it. So there's a tip back at ya! Thanks for sharing Elovia. Our first ever meatloaf.
  3. I echo Jags comments, but still great TV. She doesn't seem to age, does she.
  4. 2 episodes in and loving it. Very dark and quite funny (when it's supposed to be). I knew nothing about it really, going in. So that first scene with his girlfriend 5 minutes in was a bit of a shocker.
  5. Portal 2 co-op with my lad. Far Cry 5 New Dawn. Not much of either to be honest.
  6. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
  7. To be fair, it's set 20 years after he was famous for being old and grey. TNG was made 25 years ago and he was mid 50's then. 79 now. I think it's appropriate. But then again, i am a massive fan-boy or both Stewart and TNG. As cynical as i am around shows like this, his pedigree is sufficient for me to hold my breath, wait, and hope for the best.
  8. Stoked for this.

  10. Completed the original post.
  11. I run a 3440 x 1440 on a old GTX 1080. A 2070 is faster. Mine is a 34" too and i love it. but it's 60Hz, so yours should be very nice. Hmm, not sure what the extra Hz will demand of your GPU though. I've never installed a game that won't run at my resolution. On the odd occasion, the res isn't in the standard list, but on those rare occasions, there is a tweak in a .ini to get it to work. I don't tend to play ancient games, so that's where Elovia's (or "old father time's") point might come from. Jet-Set Willy never ran at 1080p.
  12. I'm building this post over time, as i'm too tired to finish it now, but want to get something down. I bought and built the new music setup around 18 month ago and documented it here: I must have been tired. I'd forgotten i'd even started it! The original intention was to move the hifi into the study, but it won't fit - the room is far bigger in my imagination than in reality. So the hifi is still in the lounge next to the TV. Although the hifi sounds really nice, i only use it only once every month or two. But the speakers are 1st class, which all seem like a bit of a waste of kit. We do watch TV every night nearly, and enjoy the 7 year old Yamaha amp and 5.1 speaker system every night. But i'm sat there listening to the AV with these KEF eggs. Which are nice-n-shit, but they're eggs. ...and all the time i'm staring at these beauty's doing nothing. Monitor Audio Gold GX300. So, i'm sitting there looking at a post in AVForums, and this chaps has a setup using his hifi speakers as 5.1 front speakers. I had a huge "doh" moment. Not only can I use these speakers, but they're far superior AND i can then reuse the spare eggs to give myself 7.1. With very little outlay. However, initial excitement over, it turns out you can't just plug both the AV amp and the hifi amp into the same set of speakers -even though the speakers have 2 connections each, without blowing either amp or speakers, or both. So my choices were to buy an amp switch, like this... Or run front speakers by running from pre-outs on the AV amp, into the hifi amp and then to the big speakers. Unfortunately, my AV amp, which, although brilliant was budget brilliant, and doesn't have pre-outs. As we've managed to save a bit since Christmas, i treated the family to a new AV amp. A slightly uprated class of amplifier than the Yamaha. A Denon AVR X-3500H I've spent the last week just getting it plugged in, understanding how it all works, and trying to get the best from the various sources. My next step is to move it all, and join it all together. My TV is in its own cabinet in the corner of the lounge, with the PS4, a set-top-box, and AV amp. I need to move it into the bay window space, which is more central to the room, and bring it together with the hifi amp and network streamer. Then place the speakers in their new positions. I'm not convinced the hifi will fit in the AV cabinet. I'll post some photos when it's finished.
  13. In addition to the new prequel series, Amazon have their sights set on a new MMO too. I find myself more excited by this than i have any right to be. Reactions? https://io9.gizmodo.com/amazon-has-set-its-sights-on-that-new-lord-of-the-rings-1836242345
