    Favourite acting performance of all time

    The Birdcage was fucking terrible. I didn’t know there was a sequel to Bat 21 :|

    Designing iOS app logo/menu screen

    Try Figma (browser based) or Sketch (Mac only app) for UI/ Screen design. As for getting the the student to do stuff; how long is a piece of string? Depends how good their work is. If you’re serious about it hire a designer with a proven track record.

    The Expanse

    I'm just hitting the half way point of Babylon's Ashes (6) after reading the previous novels one after the other. I think I've scunnered myself a bit, I'm not really enjoying it as much as the previous. I feel like I need a pallet cleanser, maybe I'll take a break and read some contemporary nonsense for a bit sa sa. I'm just at the part in Babylon's Ashes when...

    Mo Wax

    Arise from the depths of hell thread! Anyone seen this yet? I'm gutted that it was playing the other night in Gateshead (I'm Newcastle based) and I only found out the day after.

    Its a 250GB SSD with over 130GB free and the HDD is 1TB, and you've also got @petrolgirls uber beast having issues too. I noticed there was an update a few days ago. Its installed I've just not bothered to look into it. TBH Lightroom' performance issues has really killed my enthusiasm for photography.

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist

    I started playing this again yesterday. I’d previously completed it on the 360 and I’m now playing on the PS3. Christ it’s unforgiving. I am loving it though - it’s refreshingly difficult. If if anyone wants to add me for PS3 play throughs - idiwa.

    Post Your Gaming Setups

    Sorry to hear about the breakin’ @SeanR that’s pretty bloody shit. I know you say it’s just stuff but I hope you and the family bounce back. Chin up.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I've played through on God of War difficulty and its been an utter bastard; so many times I've felt like just knocking it down a level. Most notably during the... I'm now near the end and I've got to fend off four waves of utter bastards... It has been enjoyable but some bosses have had me stumped for a week at a time and I've been shouting "cunt" a lot and punching myself in the thigh Its still fab and I don't regret spending 50 quid on it.

    Just to add to the public lynching of Ben; I’ve only really listened to a few Bombcasts since Ben came onboard. I really don’t like the guy at all, his style/ personality distracts from the content of the show. The only times I’ve gone back is when I’ve noticed that he’s not on that weeks cast. Beastcast has has been my staple for the past year but it’s starting to grate a bit. Alex actually (and Jeff) really work for me. I don’t know why but Alex’s flog the fuck out of a joke/ over reactions have pretty much disappeared. Abby, nice enough person but forgettable. Dan is still captain ignorant (...or is he?) and Vinnie just sounds bored. I resubbed a few months back but I don’t think I’ll bother next year. Not unless there’s a bit of a shake up.

    Thanks man @petrolgirls and sorry for not replying to this sooner. Yeah I imagine you'll have a beast of a machine for your postproduction work. Good to know that even uber machines are running crap but also worrying that its this bad. I've experimented with Lightroom CC and It's pretty decent on my phone (although I wish there was some way on painting back in an erased mask ) The biggest pisser I have with Lightroom CC on desktop over Classic is that its not using virtual copies, it creates physical copies.

    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    Not posted for a while; I just came on to see if folk were having issues with Lightroom running like crap. Threw some shots on Flickr (mostly I just post to Instagram now). 20180701-DSC_6296.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr 20180701-DSC_6183.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr 20180701-DSC_6187.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr 20180701-DSC_6195.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr

    Anyone having utter shit with Lightroom Classic CC at the moment? By utter shit I mean just getting dead slow to respond to edits. I can be trying to use sliders on an adjustment brush and its taking a good 5 seconds to respond. Stats - MBP running 10.13.5 (High Sierra) 2.53Ghz i5 8GB with all apps installed to a SSD and I've also moved my catalogue files to the SSD to (with no performance improvement). I've also tried using a shared catalogue on CC cloud storage on my work MBP which is running same OS, i7 with 16gb and 3.2Ghz and an SSD clock speed. Still runs like a dog. Lightroom GPU acceleration is off on both Macs. The only way I've managed to get any improvement is to roll back Lightroom Classic CC to version 7.1 (latest release is 7.3.1) on both Macs I've even started toying with the idea of building a PC just for a Lightroom rig; though I've read over the past few days that the sluggish performance with Lightroom is not unique to Macs. Anyone else having similar issues? or know any work arounds?

    Designated survivor

    6 episodes into this and it's just utter shite! Bauer keeps saying "please, don't get up" or some shit when walking into a room. I'm off work sick and I have no idea why I'm still watching this bullshit.
  14. I'm just finishing the second book and I'm gagging to see how SE2 pans out. I can see me being forced down the torrent route. FFS

    Cheers. Its only bringing up a lot of more recent content with RDR, I take it most of the vintage Bombcasts haven't been tagged up?
