  • I just thought of a cunning wheeze.

    I Mrs May was really a leaver , and she wanted to go out with a bang, she could take the MP’s decision to take control of parliament as a vote of no confidence in the government. She could then call a general election and ask the Queen to dissolve  parliament.

    There wouldn’t be anyone in the house to stop us…[Read more]

  • And so we should have the blond bombshell then Ed ? BOJO has the looks but I would only vote for him because I trust him to REALLY get us OUT.

    I would buy one for a perfect copy of missile command on its own 😁

    They dont have to have a new 3d engine. All they have to do is include arcade perfect conversions of the old games they hold the rights to. Have them as a free down load if you buy the console.

    But they won’t.

  • Well her way woz  always we aint going to leave.

  • So sorry to hear your news. My Nan died 11 years ago and I still miss her.

    The HDR channel also has 48min of an open fire in full screen UHD HDR.

    There is hi res sound with it too so all you have to do is place your TV where your fireplace would be.

    I may be a bit simple but I have been watching the logs burn for 10 min now 😁

    Well you DO get deeper blacks with HDR. The Youtube HDR channel has a space walk video with a fat widescreen format showing narrow black bars top and bottom.

    Well it does honest. With the deep black of space at the top of the picture you cant tell where the video ends and the black bar begins, same when the blackness switches to the bottom.

    Not…[Read more]

    This one had slipped past me until now.

    The French owners of the Atari brand (Atari SA) set up a new hardware division at the end of last year to develop a new games console to be called the, er, Atari VCS.

    Apparently they are working with AMD and have got as far as deciding to use a Rayzen chip.

    If the pigs stop flying long enough they are…[Read more]

    I have now played a few HDR videos on Youtube and I am not convinced.

    It seems to me that setting the PC’s output to HDR knacker’s the colour for SDR content. Playing back HDR content dosn’t seem to do much more than restore the colour you lost in the first place 🤔

  • I see the speaker of the house has stuck his oar in again. He has decided to disallow a third vote on Mrs Mays unchanged deal on the grounds that she’s been told twice already.

    Sounds reasonable to me but that bloke is really enjoying his 15 min of fame.

    You let Steam auto run ?

    I avoid Steam when I can but if a game I want is only on Steam then I let it contact Steam by its self and then I shut Steam down again when Im done with the game.

    I REALLY HATE Steam 😂😂😂

    Its Sumink in most of London 😁

    Some people just enjoy having something to moan and get all over heated about. It is always the same things over and over again. Don’t even try to take their pet hate away from them, they won’t thank you for it.

    A mate of mine had moaned for 3 years that he couldn’t access the menu on his second hand sony TV because he didn’t have the original…[Read more]

    Oh yes I know about the cables. Discounting automotive there are 4 types. Standard speed or high speed both with or without ethernet.

    HDMI 1.4 cables are high speed and I haven’t yet seen anything that uses Ethernet over HDMI.

    The HDMI 2.1 spec has defined higher data speeds but it did NOT define a new cable.

    Anyway all my cables are 1.4 and…[Read more]

    I ment I haven’t got any HDR content to watch 😁

    The short clip that Windows provides plays back fine but its hard to make any judgement on that. If anything it seems to show more shades in the clouds but LESS colour overall 🤔

    With HDR on the desktop definitely looks washed out but then that is not output in HDR. There is now a seperate slider to…[Read more]

    Now i’m looking into HDR content I find that HDR comes in 3 flavours, plain HDR 10, HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision.

    HDR 10 uses a 10 bit colour depth and uses a static pallet for every frame. HDR 10+ adds a dynamic metadata stream so the color pallet can slide around a bit from frame to frame. Dolby Vision is also dynamic but the colour depth goes up…[Read more]

  • Wheels-Of-Fire replied to the topic That was scary in the forum PC Talk 1 week, 2 days ago

    An absolute must is to remove the power immediatly. The remote for my panasonic VCR survived 3 or 4 serious dousings in lager followed by rinsing the PCB under the cold tap.

    On the last occasion I was too drunk to notice the spill so the batteries stayed in. A rinse under the tap the next day reveiled that 4 of the pins on the main IC had…[Read more]

  • Yes Ed, and it needs fixing at a national level not an international level. If, as seems proven, Westminster is too remote to sort things out then what hope has a collective of vastly different nations got ?

     

     

  • On a judicial level we have county courts, the high court and the supreme court. We REALLY dont need a supreme supreme court.
