    Microsoft Rewards

    Not seeing it anywhere, account specific perhaps?

    Got my 5K last night too. 18k in total now - should I grab three months game pass or wait for a sale?

    Microsoft Rewards

    PC Search (with Bing) has disappeared as a potential source of points I'm just left with mobile and edge (bonus).. Time limited or something? Still no word on my missing 5k.

    Microsoft Rewards

    Did you all have to email them photographic proof of the achievements? Got an email asking me to do that this morning, and I can't really be arsed (but I probably will - is there a list of achievements I can view online anywhere?)

    Microsoft Rewards

    So I have about 10k points at the moment, not sure what to do with them. Go for a couple of months of Game Pass? (if that's enough points)

    Sous Vide

    It was probably about 1.5kg. I think the temperature was too low, seems unlikely the connective tissue would breakdown at 56 degrees. I'll stick to steaks for the time being (have had some success there).

    A bit of silverside beef for 8 hours at 56c, was disappointingly chewy. Temperature too low? Not long enough? A bit of both?

    Making Pizzas

    Yes, I've had one since they came out. It's a marvellous little thing.

    Picked up a Wancle - love the name. Anyone done any Sunday roast type joints of meat? Any tips? Considering a bit of beef on Sunday.

    Making Pizzas

    Consider a Roccbox (I have one, it's lovely, but can only do one pizza at a time if that's am issue).

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

    Grabbed, thanks.
  12. Apologies if this has already been asked and answered, but I had a quick look last night and my upgraded PS+ version had a countdown (to tomorrow) on it. Can I really not play it yet despite having paid?

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Perhaps your PS4 can't be woken up over the internet? Mine can't - which also means that remoteplay only works locally, and seems to be caused by my BT Home Hub. Do you have a BT Home Hub?

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Ports opened, PS4 in DMZ, upnp enabled, but no luck across the internet (outside of my home network). Otherwise (direct connection, over the internet on the same network) no problems. Are on a BT homehub?

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Re: remote play over the internet- Still not working. The PS4 very nearly turns on - the light turns blue, a fan makes a noise, but crucially I suppose there's no beep, and after 30 seconds it goes back to standby and the Vita says it's unable to connect. Might be a homehub issue I suppose?
