RE: Laptop recommendations

Ironically, after the HP news article today, I bought this a couple of weeks ago.
Decent i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD.  I could never go back to a non-SSD laptop.  It was massive on Hotukdeals.

RE: [VIDEO] And the most boring film is...

I don't mind the Matrix Trilogy (think the first is on a different level to the other two) as almost 'popcorn' flicks but they became too pretentious, up their own arse 'deep' and I won't pretend I understand what's going on every moment.

Wash your mouth out!  It's set in the 50's/80's, 'future' and the Wild West 1880's.  No blurring for me!

RE: Fancy root access on a nice, new Mac?

Not really no. The BBC, and everywhere else (macworld, macrumors, techradar, theregister, guardian etc. etc.) are doing their job and reporting.
The general 'rule' in these instances is for the person who finds such flaws and security issues to report them to the software company (and give them time to fix the issue) - they often get a reward for it and are known as whitehat hackers.
Google are good at fixing issues once reported, Micro$oft less so..

RE: Tony Hall we are living in a golden age for television-discuss

Less than £3 a week is hardly very steeply priced.

Not sure about that Rob. Sure, computers can do so many things quicker and better than humans but there are still many things where the human brain is way, way ahead.

RE: So... what are you playing just now?

Recently finished Zelda:Breath of the Wild and Horizon:Zero Dawn.
Started Mario Odyssey yesterday.
Both Zelda and Mario worthy of all the accolades that come their way, truly astonishing video games.

RE: Nintendo SNES mini. Anyone pre-ordering one?

"Of course now I want one, you can't get one"
I don;t think you've ever been realistically able to get one.  Pat dropped so lucky.  I tried and tried as soon as pre-orders came out but couldn't get one (inc. Smyths, whose website crashed with the demand).

RE: [VIDEO] Thor: Ragnarok

Yeah, I went to see it not knowing a single thing about the film.  I've found Thor to have many funny lines/be involved in funny banter in the last few films so was hoping it would be funny.  I deffo didn't expect anything 'dark' and thought that Cate Blanchett's character almost became a side show to the other things going on - that were superbly realised (the CGI (esp SPOILER:
Hulk
) was amazing) and, as I said, brilliantly funny. :)
I hadn't even seen the thread here about the film and was surprised there already was one. :)
Thought Jeff Goldblum was brilliant in it too.

RE: [VIDEO] Can I connect two routers

The 'hub' is a switch - don't forget you'll need power to it in the loft.
Other than that a cheap and cheerful TP-Link 4 or 8 port unmanaged switch will be absolutely fine.
Get a cable to the switch from the router and it'll take care of any devices you connect to it.

Would need to turn DHCP off on one though (the second one).
Does the new one not do dual band?

RE: [VIDEO] Blade Runner 2

Just come back and thought it was good.  As with Pete, it was unbelievably loud.  Also thought it was about half an hour too long - 90 mins would have been too short.
Thought it was good and had no issues with any of the acting.  Thought Ana (never heard of her) was is the double of Felicity Jones.
The last half hour especially was superb with some rather decent acting from Harrison Ford.

Re mini SNES's cables are longer than the mini NES's - but still too short for most people connecting to their main TV and sitting back a bit.
What have you played then?
Was the SNES the best console ever?  Or was it the N64?...
