I don't multiplay. And I am at least a generattion behind on consoles or even PC games-

The catch up is great and cheap. And games have all their bugs sorted by the time I play them.

I like to think the team I follow, The LA Clippers is that team - never won a championship, considered a joke for a long time, history of insane owners, overshadowed by richer and more illustrious neighbours.

To top all that off they were going for a title this year and weíre in with a realistic shout for the first time before the season got derailed.

And basically wear Red & Blue (and white)... which made them my team from the start when I moved here.

Same with the Angels and Dodgers (again the Angles are somewhat red & blue, although seem to have lost the blue in recent years)

I actually haven't seen them "live" since they moved to the Staples Center. Saw them a few times when the were at The LA Sports Arena (horrible place).

God they were bad back then! Donald Sterling was the Ron Noades of the time... the parallels to Palace in that era were uncanny.

Quarantining, not confiscating.

If it shows no symptoms after 14 days you should get it back. But as she canít come within 2m of you it may need to wait a little longer.

He came knocking on our door, but his timing was off. My dad had just returned home from the Sunday lunch time session.:)

People who spend over £1000 on a MacBook or any other kind of expensive, high performance laptop just to use google, watch Netflix and type a few things in on word. Wouldn’t consider myself a tech expert whatsoever, but still amazes when I see students (including a couple of friends unfortunately) who’ll moan about student debt and being skint while overpaying by about 600 quid for a laptop you only justifiably need if you’re a coder, musician or something. It’s like a middle class dad who just drives to his office and picks up his kids struggling to pay off his mortgage because he bought a Lamborghini.

A bit of a related, yet tangent annoyance.

Under the heading of bad timing, they have just opened a brand new Porsche dealership out here this week.

Out back in the dry river bed is a homeless encampment, and on the forecourt are $100K vehicles that are very unlikely to sell in the foreseeable.

I did take a quick look today, and I did see a previously owned 718 Cayman Coupe that caught my eye.

On a side note - anyone on here ever take the plunge and fork out a couple of grand on a gamer laptop?

Seems an expensive way just to be a gamer on the move?

At home you could get a decent PC build for what...800 quid? And even that will be hostage to you internet quality for big multiplayer or downloading patches or somesuch.

I’ve never met anyone who owns a gaming laptop, but have many friends who’ve built high caliber gaming PCs from scratch for about the price you mentioned.

People that seem to live their whole lives through a lens of politics.

Itís all a conspiracy, they are all in it for themselves and to keep the poor poster etc down. Never anything good.

If they just applied a small percentage of that emotional energy into doing something positive instead of whining all day they would no doubt make a difference. Instead....

Yeah hard to understand why the proven liars running the country are not trusted and instead are treated with great suspicion.

People attach too much importance to the truth, particularly when it is applied to the those running the country.

I got to know about cactus plants because of our football going over into a neighbours garden.

The man living in the house frightened us even though we had never spoken to him or him to us, or even had a glare from him to justify the fear.

So it was with great trepidation we knocked on his door to ask for our ball back.

Turns out he and his wife were lovely people , I think iirc of German stock. He had a passion for growing many a flavour of cactus plant. For a while my childlike mind became fascinated with cactus plants.

I Know **** all about them now mind.

This is quite interesting. I haven't forked out a couple of grand but about £1,000 on a 17" laptop with an i7 processor and decent NVidia graphics, not for gaming (I am shite at all computer games) but for a programming project that involved high-power parallel number crunching on the graphics card, technically known and General Processing on the GPU (GPGPU). Graphics cards contain a processing architecture consisting not of a big processor which can do a handful of complicated things at the same time, but many thousands of simple things at the same time, provided that the simultaneous operations are similar. This lets you run lots of calculations over large datasets very very quickly, e.g. fill a grid of millions of points with complicated noise in tens of milliseconds instead of getting on for a minute. Applications include image processing, audio noise cleanup, large data analysis e.g. for meteorology or astronomy, and the big thing in business computing these days which is deep learning - i.e. neural networks which can now be much more comlex and larger than on the CPU alone.

But what I did find was that high-end computation on a laptop has a practicable upper limit, beyond which it is expensive, not very portable, power-hungry and hard to modify or expand. For mobile compute applications one is better with a very simple laptop or chromebook which connects by ssh or remote desktop (or I suppose http) to a fixed stack in the sewing room which you can fill with memory and graphics cards to your heart's content.

For graphics-heavy applications like gaming, flight flight simulation or CAD that doesn't work because of network bandwidth and latency. For musicians, you don't need the GPU but you do need a decent CPU and loads of memory, and those are more portable (up to say 64GB of RAM). Laptops are more and more being used as synths in preference to hardware sound modules because of their flexibility and user interface.

They arenít confined to Chiswick either.

Some bloke who brought back a fine pile was well pissed off with the lady who took the minus figure and I didn't blame him. I'd never seen anyone take the minus offer before. The Chase seems to be on a lot more these days. Or maybe I'm just watching more telly.

Ah, I assumed that someone had hacked your account. It was hackneyed and unamusing even for you.

Today's one was a lady of a certain age weaving unsteadily across the pavement on her pushbike, despite once again the road being empty. (I was however impressed by some of the words of "encouragement" given to her by my good lady wife.)

Odd that you don't like children, after all without them you would have to pay VAT on your clothing like the rest of us.

By way of deflection and bearing in mind I have just returned from the weekly shop...People with masks on. It's been said numerous times already but it still annoys me and therefore can be repeated. They wear a mask and then bowl along gaily down the middle of every feckin' isle without a care in the world. Keep out of my way, you bastards!

I also think there might be some truth in that it gives some people a false sense of invincibility...Iíve a mask on so can return to Ďnormalí behaviour.

I walked to my local shops today and there was a woman with a mask and gloves on standing right in the middle of the narrowest bit of pavement whilst chatting away on the phone.

Everyone else had to walk into the road to avoid going within a foot of her.

If she really cared about avoiding the virus, standing to one side nearby and thus more easily maintaining the distance rule would have helped her more, and everyone else ofcourse.

I can see the point that our medics have been making. The best defence is stay home, and the second best is maintain distance. Maybe itís just a phenomenon amongst the Brits (but I doubt it) that once the public don a mask, some will think thatís Ďjob doneí and they can go out more and not worry as much about the other more crucial factors.

That could be a phone thing. I walk to work and back and am scrupulous about keeping distance and avoiding anything remotely 'busy' but as soon as I am on the phone for a bit I can get lost in conversation and go onto auto-walk.

When I end the call I can have literally no recollection of the walking bit. Same can happen when driving and running either listening to the radio or getting lost in my own thoughts

Well don't cross a busy road then.

I know people mean well when they say it but the words “Stay safe” are getting very very annoying.

Yeah, completely. I found myself saying it to someone yesterday & immediately had a word with myself. Won't happen again.

I've always been annoyed when people have said "take care", as if they expect me to go and throw myself in front of a bus or similar.

davech 24-04-2020 12:05 PM

Have a nice day, y'all :p

On a similar note, people standing 1.5 metres apart, on either side of the pavement, while having a chat.

Bit like the stay home etc etc message in the daily press conference, used when answering each and every question, instead of actually answering the question.

The damn plug sockets in my place don't seem to fit the plugs. Surely it's basic stuff. It's a fight every time you want to use them.
