  1. Has anyone heard of it? Anyone actually do it? I've got a 250kg magnet that I use during the Spring / Summer months. We've managed to pull out old bikes, some safe's (with pennies in), bike parts.... no weapons yet bar a mini meat cleaver. It's a lot of fun and the kids enjoy it too. People often come up to you and ask what it is you are doing, so a good way of being social. Video for your reference....

  3. Hey Wombat, yeah I was stuck on dial up for ages... until ISDN was available (128k I believe it was). ISDN was enough to host a 4v4 with GR, but struggled with a 5v5. I've added TP-Link Deco M4 Wireless Mesh in preperation and that alone has made download speeds around the house increase by alot. I think the three units around the house is allowing for less traffic to burden the one receiver. Much better performance than via the old trusty homeplugs. I shall post up some speed.net tests once it's up and running properly.
  4. I'd agree with all of the above... and I can drink quite a bit of it too. But it's now been over three weeks since my last drink - doing dry January. Though reckon I'll stick to it as not missed it and lost a shed load of weight and saving plenty of money.
  5. I find it hard to believe how it is possible for me not to have added my details to this thread.... so although it's about 20 years too late.... here goes.

  6. I'm sure you'll have seen this video, but the specs still impress me.
  7. At 43 I fondly remember games coming on large floppy discs and cartridges. This week I'm about to upgrade my virgin contract to their amazing sounding Gig1...That's the potential of downloading upto near 1gig a second. It's got to the stage where even the largest game can be downloaded within the same time it takes for me to make a cup of tea, nip to the loo and get back to gaming again. I just wanted to share how that completely blows my mind. Almost feel for my kids that they'll never truly appreciate how amazing that is. My sharing thought for the day.
  8. Ha glad I'm not the only one... Game of chess, Rocky?
  9. You old git.... did the flying squad ever visit you for those copied games?

    Hope you are well.

  10. Cheers Rocky! Yes, doing very well considering. Hope same for you and the rest of GR.net community. My visits are less frequent these days, but its good to know this place still exists.
  11. And I'm yet to play it... my eldest son takes part in ranked games and isn't too shabby... From the look of it I'm not sure I'd keep up with the pace these days... no where near enough bushes to camp in for my liking.
  12. Jeez 20 years never thought of it like that, scary... Still... an unrivaled community for me with many a fond memory.
  13. And what do you think to the mouse? Logtech G602 for me. Works a dream and continues on no matter how often I drop it. Feel is also great. Mice are difficult to recommend though, it's like as hand size, button choice.... blah blah blah all have a lot to play. For MMO I like a lot of buttons, where as a Turn Based game not so much. And those lights on your mouse would do my head in.
  14. Pretty sure Google admitted to "hiding" news sites from searches as an "experiment". I've ditched the big brother apps like Facebook years ago and WhatsApp more recently once FB got their hands on to it. I use Opera as a browser and duck duck go for searches. Google mail would be gone already if I weren't so lazy, but changing all the sites with a new email address doesn't enthrall me much for obvious reasons.
  15. Cheers Rocky, that link has since been updated too which is useful. I never did get around to purchasing a dual set and went with a laptop. It's done me well, but nearing the point of getting a desktop with the plan to dual monitor at time of purchase. Really liking the look of AOC C24G1 23.6" Curved - on the right desk I could very much become a poser-PC gamer once again. Not a bad price either. So is it the Hz that's important these days? Always remember looking for a monitor with a good/low MS rate. Presuming this actually isn't so important?
