[VIDEO] RE:Neil Peart RIP

A totally different take on a great Rush song, Time Stand Still.
Always loved the lyrics to this, about how the good things in life seem to go too quickly and we'd like to 'freeze some moments a bit longer'..
The lines about 'children growing up, old friends growing older' would ring true with many I'm sure and always gets me..

So, our Chancellor of The Exchequer, responsible for the country's financial and economic performance, resigns and is replaced by someone who was a junior housing minister seven months ago.
Wow.

RE: Everton: 2019/20 season

Why he joined Everton was probably related to doubling his salary and getting £11m+ a year (I imagine only second to Pep) while going to a team in the bottom 4.
He must be covered in pinch marks every morning.
He's done amazing.

I find once you start with the subs you don't even notice and don't miss anything.
Thought DiCaprio was a possible winner in Once Upon (until I saw Phoenix in Joker) and Pitt superb too.

Shouldn't be anything to do with defrag.
Are you doong the deletes as a result of a search? That would do it cos it's constantly re-searching.

To be honest the first 20 or so weren't great but gets much better. Having said that, given the last episode it's probably not worth putting the time in.

Well that could have already gone by the time that happens but there's a long way to go.
I think we're on 41 unbeaten now - and have beaten every single side in the league this season (at least once..).

Incredible stat now for the league and how 'close' it is at the top....
Liverpool. 70pts
Chelsea+Arsenal 70pts
Man U+Spurs 68pts.

Unreal

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

You seriously did that upgrade with important, non-backed up files?   Why aren't they backed up anyway, never mind the upgrade?  Any idea why your upgrade didn't work?
If all the files were there it sounds as though it should have been recoverable - but it seems you're back now.  Pretty much all PSU's will have the connections you need - or an adaptor would do the job.  Or a caddy.
You should just be able to speak to M$ to get it activated if it's all legit and the same PC - don't know why they weren't able to do it for you.
You need to get yourself a 1TB portable hard disk (only about £40) and start backing things up - sounds as if you've been rather lucky up to now.

RE: [VIDEO] 1917

It's a strange one for me.  One the one hand, technically it's amazing... but on the other I felt there were parts that just added nothing and would normally be edited out ironically. A good film but not as good as I was hoping and not on my 'Can't wait to see again..' list.

RE: Windows 7 RIP

"The installation program give you the option to do either."
I know the program will give the option - my point is that Ive not seen that this works - it needs to be done as an upgrade from a currently activated version.
From here - http://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade
Note that you cannot boot from the newly created USB drive or DVD to perform an upgrade. You must run the Windows 10 setup program from your currently installed and activated copy of Windows.

It may work as a clean install but all I knew of was the in-place upgrade.

RE: Windows 7 RIP

I'm not even sure it counts as that.  It's the worst kept secret that you can upgrade for free and activate and get a digital W10 license from Microsoft.  Officially they may say it costs £120 (to appease people who pay) but it is basically still free and always has been.  I imagine googling free windows 10 upgrade would give many options.  Download media creation tool and Windows and do an in place upgrade.

[VIDEO] Neil Peart RIP

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-51072190
So sad to hear of the death of the legendary Rush drummer, Neil Peart last night.  Died on the 7th but only released yesterday, another sign of how private a person he and his family were.  He'd been through more than enough personal tragedies over the last years and this is one more for his family. f***ing cancer again.
He retired from Rush back in 2015 (thankfully I saw them on that tour too), often playing in agony, but saying he always wanted to play the drums how he always did and it wasn't in him to 'slow down'.  All or nothing meant retirement.

For me, the greatest drummer in the world, and won that accolade on numerous occasions. Amazing lyricist too - and has been my sig here for as long as I recall.
Lots of tributes last night, I liked this one - and then did just the same..
"The greatest of all time. RIP Neil Peart. I’m going to go raise a glass and then air-drum the s*** out of Tom Sawyer."

Sooo sad, RIP Neil.

And you expect me to read it all too!!
In fairness, the 'UK' bit isn't prominent in the main header or second one - 'celebrating the world of gaming'.  Obvious when I look at the list now though - and Manic Miner is a strange omission indeed.

RE: Liverpool, reigning European Champions, 2019/20 Thread

Wow. To win the last Derby with a second eleven was great but to win this FA Cup tie with basically a U18 side is incredible for us and hugely embarrassing for Everton. Couldn't see anything other than a defeat before KO.

RE: Everton: 2019/20 season

Derby is tomorrow. Lots of first teamers injured so very interested to see who is selected for Liverpool. Still, Laporte is injured for City which explains why they are where they are.

Could be your chance though...
