    With the house completion going through today, I pulled the plug on this and I’ll be cancelling with Virgin (and paying the early repayment fees if I have to) as they wanted 30 days notice to change address and this means we’ll be without internet for Christmas (no thanks!)

    Went through Quidco and could get the Unlimited deal for £20 a month…[Read more]

  • Thanks for the link. I’ve been making use of VNC for accessing my home Pi and currently use the Realview VNC to access it from outside the house. May have to look in to it or look at not accessing it. In fairness, once the house sells, I’ll have no reason to access it from outside the house, so can just leave it as a local VNC connection which may…[Read more]

  • I’ve 170 days of my subscription left, I’ll have to do some research to decide whether it’s worth replacing that.

    Thanks for the offer, but no thanks – my monitor is this one, and the stand is built in. Does the job for me and I’m not using the Pi 4 at the minute.

  • I guess you just download the videos?

    I use it for downloading some Youtube videos and converting to MP3 files, which would probably tax the processor of the Android for quite a period. I do use it on a Pi to do the download so not that much faster perhaps!

    I’d not tried it with iPlayer – I’d always used get_iplayer for that, so perhaps I’ll try…[Read more]

    I do have a VESA mount somewhere, but my current monitor doesn’t support it so it’s not much help now unfortunately!

    An article showing that the newer firmware updates are helping to keep the board cool.

    Also interesting is the almost throwaway comment at the end about running the board vertically, rather than horizontally. Not…[Read more]

    Interesting to note that it can be powered directly from the iPad Pro!

  • Bought this in the sales last year and it has served me well, letting me stream to my front room to play Fallout 4 from the comfort of my sofa and to replace my Apple TV.

    However, we’re moving now and I’m having a bit of a clear out and consolidation of kit – my Intel NUC is no longer needed at cadets and will take on Steam streaming duties. Wife…[Read more]

    They weren’t covered in my backup location – they’re saved in your Saved Game folder in your user profile folder of Windows. Moving them in to the My Games folder in my documents folder and creating a directory junction back to where they came from has solved that issue (it’s only the third game I’ve ever seen use that folder – both of the others…[Read more]

    Noted – I hadn’t seen that, so I’ll make sure that’s enabled. I can only see its worth if you game on other PC’s (I only have one that will run it!) and you want to backup the saves (which, depending on where the local ones are saved, may be covered by my backup regime anyhow), so I totally agree on that point.

    I put aside my issues with Epic and purcashed it. I tried to buy it on the Windows store, but Windows refused to update to the latest Windows version and therefore wouldn’t let me download it, so I purchased it from Epic instead.

    Have spent most of yesterday playing – wife is Ireland and I had to wait in for a parcel and for a chap to service our…[Read more]

    As I was looking to use it with an Apple device and Apple don’t allow fun 😉 Well, with that one I wouldn’t as the new iPad is USB-C, as is the Moto G8.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Gah! in the forum Android Talk 1 month ago

    That makes sense!

    It’s not a deal breaker for me, but it’s inconsiderate, considering Android supports it!

    Incidentally, work have just purchased me an iPad Pro 11″ – I’m intending to do something similar to your idea now that that the iPad can properly access external storage, but I gather that it still has major limitations (I assume I won’t…[Read more]

    The developers are also making quite a saving over Steam, but aren’t passing any of that on.

    On the other hand, Steam was a bit of a monopoly, so it’s about time that others tried to improve on things!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Gah! in the forum Android Talk 1 month, 1 week ago

    I’m only exposed to that in a minor way – for cadets, as we use MOD resources, we’ve had to switch to using the Outlook app for accessing emails, as it can force the phone to be encrypted etc. The phone is encrypted, but the microSD card isn’t (and can’t be). Still impressed that cadets allow us to do BYOD to, but then I guess if they didn’t,…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic The Outer Worlds in the forum Gaming 1 month, 1 week ago

    Have discovered that it’s on the Microsoft Store, so I can purchase it without having to support Epic’s store so I can still stand by my morals! However, as I’m away from my home during the week until the house sale, I’ve not got a PC to play it, so it may have to wait anyhow.

    I’ve also noticed that it’s on Xbox Live Pass for PC, access for which…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Gah! in the forum Android Talk 1 month, 1 week ago

    Haven’t been able to have much play over the weekend but have got it setup and had a minor play.

    It’s got fairly minimal bloatware as you might expect for a Moto G series. The Moto actions are always good and no difference here (the torch one is usually handy).

    Takeaways at the minute – the microSD card does not appear to be supported in…[Read more]

  • No problem – enjoy your Comic Sans!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Gah! in the forum Android Talk 1 month, 1 week ago

    Well, it arrived today, so I’ll have a play and comeback with some impressions on it later this weekend.
