Now they’re proper speakers! Quality audio is worth every penny. I’d have to decorate them to look like the towers of Orthanc and Barad-dur from LOTR though.

I've been known to buy games based solely on their soundtracks (basically anything from Supergiant). I'm really looking forward to Hades coming to XBox next month; even though I own it on PC, it always felt like a great couch and gamepad game (I did in fact hold off on buying it for ages because I wanted it for console), and the soundtrack is superb. I'm tempted to try replaying Bastion too.

I own Hunt Showdown on 3 platforms because every time I hear that theme music I just want to throw money at them even though I’ve barely touched the game.

Good show on the setup though, soundbars are gash! ;)

Got a new shark hoover this morning. Had a gtech that conked out, so used a crappy Hoover hoover that I got for free but it started to get on my wick.

The new one is quite nice, although I have some reservations about the wheels but damn this thing is so much better than the Hoover at, well doing its actual job really. The Asthmatic in me is happy today.

I just bought one of these

…and I’m so impressed with it. The stability, the range, the speed, the responsiveness and the battery life are all way beyond what I ever expected from something the size of about 4 non-max iPhones stacked. I’ve noticed I do this incredibly stupid thing where if I fly it up, it’s size and relatively quiet sound make it basically vanish and for a split second I think “oh shit I’ve lot it” completely blanking on the fact I have a bloody video feed from the thing in my hands! I’ve had that moment of slight panic three times already! Senility comes quick to some of us!

I should probably take the safety stickers off it eh? :-k

Modern DJI stuff is really impressive isn't it. Have you got the thing registered with the government yet? I haven't flown my Mavic Air since they introduced the need and wasn't sure how long a process it was.

Mini 2 (and mini) comes in at 1g under the requirement for registration. Crafty dji, t’s almost like they planned it that way. I guess the government figured under 250g are just toys but this ain’t no toy!



Ok this is so a toy but it’sa very nice toy.
