  1. If England have any guts they should open with 2 of Bairstow, Butler and Ali and treat it like a one-day game. At least then if they do lose early wickets Burns and Sibley could come in and bore India into a draw. Obviously got to bowl them out first.
  2. Does your coffee equipment use proprietary simple plug and play capsules that a dummy could use or does it require a specific open standard of coffee which you have to install yourself but only if you have an engineering degree? I think that is the most important question on the forum right now.
  3. This took me a little while but I got there in the end. The whole Airbus vs Boeing Flight Control Strategy discussion is a good one. I think Airbus shade it for me (I hate yokes) but your point about the levers is totally valid.
  4. Looks like a normal England batting performance today then.
  5. That’s the A15 by RAF Waddington. It’s deceptive because the runway threshold is very close to the road so a normal approach can look quite interesting. I had to defend one of my guys once who was tried by social media for what was a perfectly safe landing. There are signs up telling people not to stand there but as you can see no-one pays any notice.
  6. Having moved back last year the boy and I have got Season tickets for the first time. He’s Lincoln born and bred but I’m not, so I’ll be playing catch-up but really looking forward to it.
  7. Assuming your aircraft has 'traditional' instruments then a good rule of thumb is that the VSI is the first thing to move when you initiate a climb or descent and the last thing to stop when you level off. If you're in a climb or descent and you want to level off, adjust the attitude to 'stop the clock' (stop the altimeter changing) and hold that until the VSI settles down. You can then make smaller adjustments to finesse. If you think you're flying straight and level, the VSI will give you an indication of whether you start climbing or descending before the altimeter moves. If your aircraft has some fancy-pants electronic display then it might have a Velocity Vector (VV), in which case you just put that on the artificial horizon and jobs a good 'un. Trimming is a dark art, it may be that the sensitivity of the hat is too high (I don't know if you can change it in settings). Bigger aircraft tend to have specific trim wheels which are much less sensitive and allow fine adjustment, but I don't know if that's simulated here? Is there an auto-trim setting that would make life easier?
  8. Would there be any benefit to one with a heatsink in PS5 or is the cooling fan designed to negate that?
  9. You’d be missing out. Ted Lasso is absolutely fantastic, The Morning Show is great, and I really enjoyed Mythic Quest. There are plenty of other recs in the thread. I don’t think I would necessarily have paid for it monthly, but for free there’s some really good stuff there.
  10. Cool thanks, it just wasn't showing through the App, had to log in on a browser to see. Anyway, is it any good?
  11. Metro Exodus is £8.49 or £13.49 for the Gold edition for PSPlus members right now. I quite fancy giving it a go, but 1 - Is it a good game? and 2 - Does that include a free upgrade to make it the Enhanced Edition so I can bask in all the 60fps Ray-Traced goodness?
  12. See I have no idea who that character is, or the actor. So for me, the finale was quite deflating as it was just a guy explaining the plot and then no proper ending. Should I have to Wikipedia that character so I can have an emotional attachment to the show?
  13. I know this has been mooted before: Do the penalty shoot out before the game. That way there’s less pressure, and at least one team is going to have to press to get a result in extra time.
  14. After finishing Act 3 a couple of days ago I’ve just started Mass Effect Legendary edition, and it feels like walking in treacle.
  15. Yep, depends on the exact layout but you can either sprint round and up the slope, or to the translocator. Also if there are any green towers in any area, I always make a beeline for those and get rid of them first as they shield/regenerate (not sure which) the other enemies.
  16. I reckon that if you’re ready for the boss fight you should just run through that bit.
  17. it’s weird isn’t it. Not even the option to run the PS4 app.
  18. It does that thing that was a criminal offence back in 96 of being a pub shirt first and football kit second. If England wear the Blue shirt in the semi or final they will definitely lose. After the grey kit loss of 96 there was an implicit agreement that all England away kits for ever more would be Red to appease the vengeful gods of football. At a push, dark blue third kits are acceptable but should never be worn in a tournament. I’m only semi-joking.
  19. You’re probably right, he might have played against the Czechs. But now, I can’t see Shaw getting dropped.
  20. I can’t see Coady or White getting any game time as Stones and Maguire have been very solid, and Mings was too so would seem to be the obvious sub if one is required. I am surprised we haven’t seen anything of Chilwell, as before the tournament I would have guessed he would be picked in front of Shaw. However Shaw has been absolutely immense in the last 3 games so now I wonder if we’ll see Chilwell at all?
  21. Don’t worry, it’s only 18 months till the World Cup.
  22. It runs at 60fps at about 1800p (I think) and the loading times are already extremely short on PS5. I struggle to see what they can realistically add other than some haptics to make it much better. It’s already a great game.
  23. Here are the details from the blog, which explains why you can’t see the PS5 options. Still doesn’t explain why they’ve done it this way though.
  24. Come on, you missed an open goal here. Loved the new episode.
