no, you're thinking of super glue, unless that's one of those things if I was on QI I'd get a klaxon (which isn't a klaxon, but) for.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

On the radio they were saying how the police need to start singing from the same song sheet a bit more, but in their defence it's all a bit new to them as well isn't it. I was speaking to a friend earlier who said her neighbours went for a walk, and came to a T junction, as they got there they stopped, to discuss which way to go, bad timing, at that moment, a police car pulled up, and told them if they're out exercising they should be walking, not stopped chatting!

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

well that was a massive waste of time :( 48% shutdown still

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

great, i tried that, still didn't work, and now the laptop is gettng used more with the kids being home it's a problem:(

I guess for time being they'll just have to use switch user, and not switch off/log out/restart :(

may have to see if i can upgrade using insider iso, put on fast ring, see if something newer fixes it

edit it's trying to do 1909 now, fingers crossed

RE: Coping with the lockdown

sorry to hear that, hope it works out well. I read an article the other day (I forget where) about someone 'resorting' to working for Tesco, they were surprised when sat in line for interview, there were ppl from all walks of life, diffrent jobs/ careers now out of work.

A couple of times I've been out of work Christmas time, I've stacked shelves in Currys, nice bunch of ppl, they thought it was odd I was there doing that, but when there's bills to pay, it's better than signing on.

I'm lucky, we had a meeting saying our part of business is ok, but others have been told use leave, or do reduced hours :(

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Was your Tesco trip morning or afternoon? The checkout lady said last Sunday the moring was really busy, but afternoon empty. I guess it depends on location and other options nearby.

What We Do In the Shadows

season 2 starts soon :)

The New Zealand film, and US TV series was on over Christmas on BBC, we didn't get round to watching it until missus saw JoJo Rabbit at the cinema, so we watched the film and series 1 over the next few days :)

The TV series is slightly different it tone to the film, but they're both a v funny twist on the mockumentary/sitcom formula, and poke a lot of fun at the vampire mythology by using it to great comic effect.

season 1 is still on iplayer

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

just done weekly shop in Tesco, pretty empty, and first time in ages got just about everything on shopping list :)

Lots of peanut butter, soap, loo roll, bread, so I'll eat like a king tonight :)

No eggs, or flour, no tinned toms, bu they had passata,

So nice to see shelves are getting back to normal, post office style queue system for tills, but it was pretty empty anyway.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

I saw an interesting post last night about that saying especially now it's spring, hayfever will start, so ppl will question every cough and sneeze even more :(

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

I got a bit worried when i had a headache the other day, then went to loo and had a wee, and realised why i probably had a headache ;) Guess I don't drink as much working from home as I do at work.

RE: Coping with the lockdown

yes, my local police force posted about stopping ppl sitting around drinking in the park as if nothing was wrong etc :(

PM Boris Johnson tests positive for coronavirus

Mr Johnson has mild symptoms and will self-isolate in Downing Street.

"He was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England's chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty," a statement said.

He will still be in charge of the government's handling of the crisis, the statement added.

The test was carried out at Number 10 by NHS staff.

In a tweet, Mr Johnson said: "Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government's response via video-conference as we fight this virus.

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

i played a bit of Sonic Forces the other day, "free" playstation plus game. It was kind of fun, no idea what I was doing, I never had a megadrive so can't compare, but this has 2d and 3d bits. I probably won't play it again, it was all a bit too fast, which I know is the point, but don't understand how I got an A on one level :)

Shadow of collosus was other game this month, which I'd like to give a go if I get chance.

RE: Coping with the lockdown

not sure what to say Andy, thanks? Keep up your good work. Not meant to be patronising, we'd be stuffed without yo guys.

I'm a bit like Si, I have an office job so brought laptop, phone post-it notesetc home. We're all small team, use Teams to chat daily, every few days video call. I find it difficult to focus sometimes, as work is v quiet with what's going on.

I'm v glad we have a house, with garden! Means I can pretend to work upstairs, while missus is "homeschooling" in dining room, playing with them in garden.

I have lunch duty with them, I'm sure a game of footy at lunch time never used to be this tiring ;)

I guess if I lived on my own it would be tricky, but it's not actually that different to normal for me!

I've seen/heard elderly neighbors pottering about, so I give them a shout to make sure they're ok. The one I usually go round to see to watch saints is getting bored with no footy - he normally watches every match on, any league/division!

RE: Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

maybe it's cos they sell fags as well?

if ppl can't buy fags and booze, then how will the government get any money coming in to pay for the NHS?

it's good, more ppl buying booze in offy, means less ppl in supermarket :)

when i was in supermarket at the weekend, in the alcohol section, all the cheap lager, cider, and cheap vodka were gone, but premium spirits, craft beers still stocked up :) I guess the ppl buying all the loo roll are buying up the stella and fosters as well.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

I think last week, my parents were a bit like that woman, not as extreme, but were happy to carry on as normal, Tuesday afternoon they usually pick up the girls from school, and during holidays they come earlier to have the afternoon with them.

I was pleasantly surprised that my my mum sent me a message to say they were following govt. advice and wouldn't be coming round this afternoon.

"We don't actually care, we've had our lives"
nice of her to speak for all over 70s :(

on the plus side, there's kids like this

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

i can't remember if i tried that or not! I'll give that a go tomorrow.

RE: Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

i thought at the beginning it looked like it was slit, but i don't think it was, i thought it just looked like it from the blood round his mouth dripping, but now I think about it, he stabbed, then drunk, so maybe he had his throat slit, before being fed upon, i'll have to watch again now :)


it's not clear - i think that's deliberate, probably to send you down the wrong path right from the beginning
