RE: The Official Liverpool 2018/19 Season Thread

A bit late, but congratulations.

RE: 4K UHD blu-ray disc player

Thanks Sue.
Off to look at Sony's... šŸ˜Š

4K UHD blu-ray disc player

I recently got a new TV & I'm thinking about buying a 4k UHD disc player. They seem to start around the Ā£100 mark. As the TV has all the apps I want to use it doesn't need to do anything other than play discs. I'm more interested in the up scaling the Blu-ray discs I already own but I would probably buy new releases in UHD format.
Has anyone here upgraded to UHD? Is it worth it?
The machine I've been looking at is this LG player...
Thanks all šŸ‘

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

I just read the following on the Independent website...

"North Korean state owned media has lashed out at Joe Biden, calling him a "fool of low IQ" and attacking him for having "the temerity to insult" the country's leader, Kim Jong-un.

"He is self-praising himself as being the most popular presidential candidate. This is enough to make a cat laugh," the agency, KCNA, wrote in a statement that also caused him a "snob bereft of elementary quality as human being."

RE: Useful Free Software Links (as recommended by forum users)

As this thread was started in 2012 I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for disc cloning software. Is Clonezilla still the program to use? I have done this once but it was so long ago I have forgotten how I did it. I don't mind buying software if its easy to use. I would like to buy a 1tb SSD to replace a 250gb SSD in my laptop.

Thanks all.

This is the one I was looking at, Ā£79.99 for the size looks like a bargain.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

I'm outraged that it cost Ā£5.25 for a Milkshake. :-D
But I agree it will get worse so maybe a harsh punishment will put off the next incident. As for "someone I agree with", that would be none of them. I am sick to death of professional politicians. I can't think of one of them I admire. Not one.

RE: [VIDEO] Avengers 4 Endgame

Kevin Smith has a review of the movie on his YouTube channel where he's talking to camera for over 70 minutes. I didn't expect to watch it all the way through but I did.
He is so passionate about it he even cries two or three times. It's been watched over a million views.

On a side note, I found myself more & more irritated by his language but I guess that's who he is.

RE: Thought Iā€™d say Hi...

Welcome back šŸ‘‹

RE: [VIDEO] Avengers 4 Endgame

You are right, thanks.
Bandi did try & tell me to change some part of the url previously but to be honest I forgot what he said. Deleting a single letter is a lot easier to remember. Thanks again :-D

The question I wanted to ask is covered in the link below but PLEASE don't click on the link if you have not yet seen the movie.

And as usual, no link I post works so you will need to copy & paste.
EDIT, FIXED!!! (see below)

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

I nearly didn't click that link but glad I did now. Thanks

RE: Music streaming.

Agree about mp3tag, I have about 48k mp3's.
Mine are sorted by Artist first, then album then track number.
I uploaded mine to Google (for free) then stream using the Google music app. The limit is 50k tracks, sooner or later I will have run out of space & will have to remove something to add a new album.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

"Donald Trump has passed the 10,000 falsehoods mark since taking office, according to fact-checkers, his flights of rhetoric at recent rally appearances seeing him hit an astonishing average of 23 untruths per day."

I have no time for the orange loony but 10k seems insane.

For some weird reason the above post didn't bump this thread to the top of the "all forums" page. Just posting see if it happens again.
