thread Happy November / Friday Everyone
Did everyone make it through halloween without being attacked by a hoard of the undead?
permalink Yes.
But some company of chancers is claiming to be a "proactive co-ordination hub", which is pure Nathan Barley. Presumably they also keep it dense and are totally Mexico.
permalink I could be a semi-passive coordination hub today I think
if i really put my back into it.
permalink I'm shooting for unresponsive discombobulation hub
That's about my limit today.
permalink Yeah, small twats in shit cosplay avoided
Awaiting tomorrow
permalink Happy Blade Runner day!
am I glad we dodged that dystopian future
permalink I'm in Ipswich
and I'm not so sure
permalink i think we should crowdfund a remake of blade runner set in norfolk
"not from around here are you.. are you a robot?

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. bags of chips on fire off the boot of a ford Orion. I watched TK Max tops glitter in the dark near the bull & Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like piss in rain.
permalink Blade Runner
is now set in the past.
permalink and LA in it
looks considerably less "on fire" than the real one.
permalink This.
permalink Made it to work through the sweeping Brexit riots today
...
permalink C'mon now,
they were never gonna riot in East Grinstead.
permalink but you should hear them tut
.
permalink There'll be some cutting remarks
on the local Facebook groups though.
permalink Some menacing* teens nearly** egged me, but I managed to escape***
* About 10 mid-teen lads who were all skinny and about 5'6 at best with their tracky hoods pulled tight around their faces, who actually moved aside to let me pass as their first reaction

** they clearly had eggs and were looking at me as if they were waiting for one of the others to throw first, but none of them did

*** I managed not to laugh out loud, and my headphones were loud enough that I couldn't hear if they said anything. I probably knew a couple of them and it's likely they all know who I am.
permalink I found out that google do an online retail training thing
that rewards you with massive discounts on some of their kit.

I just got a chromecast for £3 and a nest mini for £4.90 (both 90% off). A twin set of their wifi mesh (which are now smart speakers too) is about £60, so I might get one for Christmas.
permalink nice
went to look at tellies yesterday..... they are all fecking massive nowadays, the 40 inch ones were tucked in a corner like you'd be a freak to want one. Thos LGs do look good though, we might have to mock it up and see if we can squeeze in the 43" (ahem) and wait to see what happens in the sales obvs

btw, if oyu ever see a stereo system (idally like a midi system) which takes a mic-in and mixes it karaoke style, my mane wants one, surprisingly hard to find, they are all either super crappy karaoke machines or top end audiophile systems.
permalink It's because party speakers have cornered that market
I'll have a look later

I had a Persian chap in recently who couldn't understand why we sell 65 and 75 inch tvs when all the houses in England are small
permalink Yeah, she doesn't want 2 separate things
Which is the tricky bit

75 is monster sized,. You'd need do move your head all the time .
permalink Just spotted that that LG tv is £30 off at the moment
But I don't know how you get that online, we use a barcode for it in store
