  1. The Film Thread (Use Spoiler Warnings!)

    I saw The Last Jedi last night and wasn't overly impressed.
  2. What Do You Collect?

    I may have spent more on this than I care to admit but it's BLOODY BEAUTIFUL! AND HUUUUUUUUUGE!
  3. The New Fight Night Thread

    Count me in for PUBG and Overwatch
  4. Player Unknowns Battlegrounds

    The more I see of this the more tempted I am to get it, though I suspect it'd be a flash in the pan kind of thinking.
  5. How much would you sell this build for?

    Oh, that's not worth anything. Better just keep it and pretend like you never thought about parting with it. REINHARDT, DON'T GO!
  6. Oh Maybe contact support about it? Surely it should be distinguishing between different user accounts/devices.
  7. The more you listen, the more they'll appear. You'll have just the one Daily Mix to begin with but once you've listened to a larger number of songs (i.e. given it more data) it'll get a better idea of the kind of stuff you like/might like and begin to put together more than one mix.
  8. Overwatch

    Soldier 76 is your best bet for the basics, Lucio for healing and probably D.Va for tanking.
  9. What doesn't piss you off?

    My Excel process has been delegated to somebody else. It's no longer my problem. I'm freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
  10. What pisses you off?

    I wish I knew! On the bright side I can at least be brutally honest when telling recruiters that I'm naturally good with software, even if I REALLY don't want to be.
  11. What pisses you off?

    Double post, sorry! My Excel troubles have worsened. Earlier this week I'd had enough of the constant stress so (perhaps recklessly) decided to sabotage the software a little, buying me a couple of days of peace. Turns out, however, that by intentionally tanking the system I exposed a rather significant flaw which has now been patched, thereby improving the overall process and further strengthening my co-workers perception of me as an Excel genius.
  12. What pisses you off?

    While driving home this evening I switched on my demisters and noticed they were only pumping out cold air. My temperature gauge was also sky high, just like it was when I took it to the garage at the beginning of last month. I only got it back a couple of weeks ago! I've dropped it off at a different garage to assess the fault. A quick browse online suggests I should then give the previous garage a chance to fix their mistake but I really can't face the thought of them dicking about with my car for another few weeks. My insurance and MOT are due so this month was always going to be expensive and now this is going to ramp up the cost even more. Bloody brilliant!
  13. Battlefield 1

    For me, BF1 suffers the same problem as Battlefront in that it lacks any real depth yet still tries to give you the impression that it has it in spades. There's just no meatiness to any of the weapons which, unlike previous entries in the series, you aren't required to invest much effort to obtain. BC2, BF3 and, to a somewhat lesser extent, BF4 benefited from a gritty feeling of all-out war and boasted genuine moments of excitement when playing with friends. As our resident sniper (), I'll never forget the terror of battling down the slope on Valparaiso for the chance to nervously climb the stairs of the lighthouse and pin down the enemy from a window. That was real sniping. Pulling that trigger felt good. Even things like distance kills added to the experience. All in all, it was FUN. BF1 just doesn't have that same spark, sadly.
  14. What pisses you off?

    That's brilliant, thanks! Definitely noting that down for later
  15. What pisses you off?

    Heh, what I was originally hired for was offshored a few months ago. I'd give anything to have that simplicity back, even if it did get a bit dull sometimes. I made a bit of progress today insofar as I requested that the "trainer" guy's access key be passed to somebody else, the idea being that I can delegate a bit of the grunt work to them. That'll free up more time to train another guy who, bizarrely, is fully proficient at Excel. Why the hell our roles weren't reversed I'll never know! Excel is one of those programs that I'd really love to get to grips with because it'd be incredibly useful in my line of work. However, the user experience is so bad that it's walled off to all but those who've already jumped through a multitude of hoops to understand it. I bought the "For Dummies" book a while back in the hopes of getting to grips with VLOOKUP, the holy grail of formulae in my office, but didn't have a test environment in which to practice properly. Now I've got the opportunity to take a stab at it with actual data but no time to learn properly i.e. I'm just typing the formula in as instructed without understanding what does what. Printing, funnily enough, is one of the things that inadvertently made certain colleagues think I was an Excel genius. I was called over by a senior staff member who needed to print a selection but couldn't manage it. Having a basic grasp of how most software works, I figured I'd give it a go and managed to find the right option. That same senior staff member was the one who recommended me for this project. Y'know, because I figured out how to print something once. Life is strange.
