  1. it's supposed to be aimed at developers not gamers, right? I can sort of see why it would be, given that, even though the reality of these things is that everybody wants to watch and get hyped now.
  2. I'm going to think of my day job every time I see the name of this fucking thing. Not saying ah'm oot, but it's gonna have to go some.

    What's all this Luis Ronaldo stuff? Original Ronaldo or Fat Ronaldo please, it's not like we're on first name terms
  5. more stewards with better training and responsibility, I suppose. For all those "what if he had a weapon" questions it's the searches on the way into the place that are supposed to catch those. I suppose you could add more detectors on the turnstiles as well for that.

    Very one-sided T20 last night. So now Chris Jordan and Sam Billings are knocking on the ODI WC team door a bit.

    maybe they still have to negotiate the deal. Or... there's no point announcing it before the end of the season? If they contrived to lose every game between now and then I suppose people would change their minds.

    I thought you didn't like that, or is that just when they're split? You could get joycons and the dog face holder thingy, so you've two of those.

    God it’s great when football is funny. I wonder if Madrid will wait til the end of the season to fire the coach, they’re all done til August now anyway.
  12. I was thinking about this a bit yesterday. I have a teeny tiny insight into what Spotify (and similar) does, basically through what they've talked about in blogs and interviews plus a friend of a friend worked on/led what became Discover Weekly. They're making so much data out of what songs you like, outside of genre and artist there's tempo, lyrics, different instruments and no doubt the list goes on for ages. People will listen to hundreds of tracks in a week and all of it will feed this massive database, as will linking to what your friends/other influencers like and if you usually like their recommendations. Onwards and onwards. Whereas for books you have author, genre, maybe age, and people will generally read a lot less as it takes much longer than music to get through one. Is anybody out there databasing them for things like punchy dialogue, lavish descriptions of scenes, many people re-reading passages as they go for whatever reason, etc etc? Maybe there's an opportunity to do something better. I think right now it's more "you like Reacher books is it? Well, here's some other books where the publishers tried to get in on the trend, hooray!".

    Pike's Peak got added later in the first game, maybe it's another DLC thing.

    I don’t think he can have logged into the official Marseille insta, somehow. Very cool nonetheless, of course. Anyway, I came to post this other social media thing that made me laugh tonight, I’ve watched it about four times now.

    Also on the Windies ranking lowly - has Gayle been playing with them lately? He really does make a difference, I had the impression he’d come back into the ODI team for this series after an absence but maybe that’s bollocks. Couple that with improving bowlers, being at home and I dunno but they always seem motivated to go for it against England. I was more surprised they’d been so bad than that they were playing this well.
