South Wales Derby tomorrow.
Stress levels lower than they would have been when we were on our record breaking losing run, but reminder that no team have ever, ever done a league double and the Jacks comes to Cardiff with a 3-0 win from the first game.
3pm kick off which should make things 'lively' given we rarely ever play them later than 12.30 and nobody got to watch last years home game.
Records are there for the breaking. COYJB!1
Meh, ok. Perhaps I'll watch it.
And I was a hardcore Trekkie until 10 years ago0
GameCube seems to need to be run at 70% resolution to get playable speeds, according to retrogamecorps.
Still a bargain though.0
Alright, who's the clown that voted Genisys as the best film?0
American (VPN) Pluto is great. 24/7 Star Trek, (old school) Doctor Who, MST 3000, James Bond movies and (on demand) every awful low-budget Asylum movie you could ever want for lol-watches.0
Good lord, episode 3 was boring. I got to the conclusion/pay off at the end and realised I didn't have a clue what was going on.0
The crew's dialogue style does seem to be modelled on one of either "Chandler Bing" or "Gwyneth Paltrow's Oscar acceptance speech". Not much in between.0

Slight damage to Discovery, several sets of synchronised pyro go off on the bridge every ten seconds.1

Pluto tv has an mst3k channel, it's not all bad.
If you get the USA version (vpn or whatever) they have a 24/7 classic (pre-ecclestone) Doctor Who channel too0

I think you should give him until the end of the season
Nah, Mick has my vote of confidence. Give him the job for life and keys to the city.

We've had Ferengi in Starfleet since Nog in Deep Space Nine. I'd be surprised if the Ferengi had actually joined the Federation though.
My guess is they have joined, and we get some "we no longer care about profit" line in the first few scenes that guy is featured.
I want to be wrong of course
But, throughout Star Trek (it's not a New Trek thing), the Federation has always said it 'embraced diveristy'.... as long as you hold exactly the same moral values as they do! I liked that line in Trek VI from the Klingons about the Federation being a "homo sapiens only club"0

I think that new Ferengi design looks alright actually, unlike the rest of the trailer which looks bloody awful.
Let's see how they treat them as characters though. They've joined Starfleet, so will the UFP have embraced the unique and diverse elements of Ferengi culture, or will they have been absorbed into the collective and act according to human acceptable standards and cultural norms now now?1
Fond memories, as someone of around 10 years, watching this being played in my local video rental shop. Never really played it myself; I just watched the 'bigger boys' playing it0
I'm really looking forward to their heavy handed discussion of the politics/culture war of the early 21st Century... Probably the whole season will be about that. Yay.
Who knows, maybe Picard will prevent World War 3 and the 'post atomic horror' that was supposed to happen in our time period (according to encounter at farpoint).0
Phew. The first review I came across was the Indiewire one and, since I hadn't seen any of the positive ratings, I got very worried. Phew!0
Nice, AK Bell! Your kid will be happy
I have a Pocketgo S30 on the way, which I'm looking forward to modding an tinkering with, then also passing to my daughter to play some of daddy's old fashioned games on1

Just ordered one of them Powkiddy v90 clam shell GBA SP things which should be perfect. He's not going to notice any tiny imperfections. Price has hiked up by a tenner since it was mentioned in September though. Thanks, Brexit.
Pop on some custom firmware. It smooths out the imperfections and also makes it simpler to use, with a nicer UI.

100% faithful GameCube emulation on an affordable handheld will be the end of my life.
Depending on your definition of affordable, you might be dead soon...
Anyone with the 4k Indy box agree with this?
It plays some N64 and Dreamcast pretty well but certainly not all. The new Powkiddy RGB-10 Max has the same chipset but in a horizontal form and with dual stick if you prefer that.
Or Anbernic RG351P is mostly the same but with a lower resolution screen.
They all come with ROMs these days.0
Is it Ghostbusters 2?2
Watch a trailer on YouTube!0
Maybe I'm weird, but I find that when I see the higher poly characters I start to notice the absence of things like facial animation. And the higher resolution textures on the environment look out of place on the low detailed geometry.
I, weirdly, think the original looks better!7
Star Trek: Picard - Season 3, it's not s**t
