  1. Thanks, took a few mins to set up but it working as expected... massive time saver, i lost count how many times I have searched for SNES games and then clicked the tiles!

    Lost a 4 day streak. Mildly annoyed.  Can only imagine what people with a few hundred days feel like.  :)


    I have a shortcut script that runs 30 mobile bing searches. Used it without issue for a while.    Need to get round to sorting something out for pc too. 

    Is that using the shortcuts app on iOS? I don’t suppose you have a guide on how to set that up?

  3. I did a couple yesterday and it was quite fun just zooming around the environment with the drone, shame it doesn't go treetop height and have a video mode, after watching some of the excellent drone footage in some of the episodes of top gear quite fancied giving it a go.

  4. The jelly art cakes looked good, checking through YouTube there are some serious artists out there. Need to find someone selling those in London.


    I think all reality style shows have had a massive dip in quality of participants, as mentioned up thread they seem to ignore actual quality and just go for characters.


    At least they didn’t do a sky history and get a neo-nazi on.

  5. Ahhhh never knew that... that'll save loads of time for the barn finds, glad I popped in the thread.


    Fired it up on the Series X last night and wasn't expecting to be as good as it was, and it was pretty special on the One X as it was.

  6. I got a bit of Forza 7 in yesterday and noticed a really weird visual effect.


    On one of the circuits the road surface had textured grooves in it and once you got to a decent speed it gave the effect of being one continuous pattern and the car was kinda floating on it. So the road and car were almost stationary and the scenery and sky were whizzing around.


    Is this because its in 60fps now or am I getting some sort of motion sickness?

  7. this would make a cracking Netflix special... can chronicle every step along the way such as Microsoft's journey to get the product ready, the online sellers trying to manage preorders, the logistics firms trying to cope and then us nutters frantically refreshing browsers and apps (hanging out of windows) to see if its any closer.


    All set to a Hans Zimmer soundtrack and presented in 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos.

  8. Has anyone managed to get DPD's real time tracking working in their browser?


    Tried Edge and Chrome but just displays standard message about when to expect it and options to change on top of a blurred out map screen.


    The app is fine.

  9. Had to go and drop the car off at the garage just now, drove past Saint Nick of DPD on the way to give him silent blessings.


    Even though he was in the opposite direction to the garage.


    On 34 of 101, projected time of 13:44 should be easily met I think.

  10. Curry’s/DPD email just come in, delivery between 13:44 and 14:44, order number 101.


    I have a Change Board at that time so might just record a voice sample saying ‘Approved’ and play it at random times throughout the call.


    in shocking news though it isn’t Phil delivering to continue on the tradition of console launch day deliveries but a new challenger had appeared. 

    Not sure what his name is as the Email says Eddie, the app says Engin but then has Nick in brackets. 

    Might address him as Saint Nick.

  11. Woke up just now to a curry’s email asking to complete a Reebok review, they’ve sent no emails besides it’s dispatched so far. At least get the thing delivered first before asking how it went.


    Anyway, the precious cargo has been delivered to the Dartford depot at 01:10 and then again at 01:12 for good measure, hopefully I’ll get a time slip in the next couple of hours.

    If your actual internet connection is slow, you can transfer games from your old Xbox so long as it's on the same network. It isn't the speediest process, but at least it won't hog your broadband.

    Broadbands around 60mb-ish but I expect their servers to get a proper hammering tomorrow.


    The copying across the network sounds interesting, I have a mini switch sitting around so might research into seeing if that could be used.


    Cheers for the tip!

  13. That was my intention too but I forgot to buy an external hard drive to do it with :doh:


    pretty sure I’ll get the console delivered tomorrow. It then by the time the system patch is done and I’ve downloaded any game at all from Game Pass it’ll probably be Thursday.
