  2. Nintendo Switch - Happy Switchmas Everyone!

    How have people not known to not order from GAME? They've been shite for a decade. I pre-ordered it immediately when you were able to. I received the dispatch confirmation right before I posted. Would love to get it before Friday as I'm out filming YewTewbz all evening.

  5. Your film diary 2017

    I saw A Cure For Wellness last night and loved it. Really disturbing/creepy/fucked up. Absolutely gorgeously shot in places/for large parts. Dane DeHaan is absolutely awesome, love him. Great movie.
  6. Goafer And I Started A Let's Play YouTube Channel....

    I hate lime. Goafer purchased me a plethora of lime products to eat as a challenge/forfeit. Awful.
  7. The 'Other' Switch Thread

    Just paid for my Switch. Hyypppeeeeddddd. Hyped for; - No games. - No VC. - No Mario until December. - No information. - No idea why I purchased it. - Being a total lad. - Bomberman . Wheeeeey.
  8. Nintendo Switch - Happy Switchmas Everyone!

    Interesting. The earlier consoles turned out to have some of the best games on the console in the launch lineup. GC had Rogue Leader, but after that it falls apart.
  9. What Have You Bought?

    Marginally coincidentally, I've purchased a Mega Drive 2, am having trouble with it and was going to ask Goafer to have a look at it for me (seeing him tomorrow).
  10. Super Bomberman R

    My sister and I loved this one; Certainly one of the most fun multiplayer/party games.

    Those crabs look terrifying. I am scare.
  15. Jury Service

    I did Jury Service last year and absolutely loved it. Have you ever done it? What cases did you get? How did you react? Have you got it coming up? I did a video about my experience, should you wish to see it, here it is;

  17. Savings/Investments

    If they consolidate again (currently unlikely), you shouldn't lost/gain money. The actual money value you hold should stay roughly the same. Theoretically, you could get to a point where you have one share but it's worth £500. Kind of unlikely they'll return to pre-recession levels, but only because of the consolidation. Not like it WON'T happen. Anything could happen> They could fold tomorrow...but... yeah. When you say £30 - 40, is that for the year? You can definitely get cheaper than that. Some companies charge £1.80 per month (£21.60) a year for a normal share dealing account. Consider transferring the account. I'm not an advisor so I can't say if you should or shouldn't sell, but shares are long term vybez, and a FTSE 100 firm like that....should...be okay (should). It's probably worth holding on IMO. How much do they charge for buying/selling (dealing) shares?
  18. Savings/Investments

    Will's correct. It's called a consolidation and happens fairly often. A company will have so many shares in issue, but the share price will be "low", typically it happens with share prices that are really low (like, 2p or whatever). They will then consolidate the shares, so they will say that all shareholders will receive 1 new share to replace every 10 existing shares they hold. The individual price of the shares (usually/should) then shoot up, meaning people hold the same value of shares (or minimally changed) but the individual share price is much higher, with the usual intention of doing so is that they become more attractive to potential share buyers. The most I ever saw was, I think, 1 new share for ever 215,000 shares held. The RBS one was one of the largest consolidations ever, in terms of the number of people it effected/affected. Double check the amount you paid in and the amount it's now worth though, rather than looking at the share price. https://www.share.com/find-investments/advanced-finder/company-overview/royal-bank-of-scotland/summary/203/ Also....check that Lloyds are ripping you off. Most share dealing companies cover transfer out costs, if you wish to transfer, and they make it very simple to do so. Last point, just in case I didn't make it clear, if you have made that much money (entirely probable in eight years, but I haven't checked) then it's unrelated to the fact that you now hold less shares.
  19. Savings/Investments

    Not quiiiite right. I've worked at a stockbrokers for nearly 6 years. Started off in Customer Services (well, I'm still there) as a call taker, but got promoted to Contact Team Manager a while ago. My "day-to-day" is now, really, people manager and answering escalated queries, so that means I know a good amount about it. Yeah. And tings. Dem markets etc. I suppose the pertinent things to mention; - Equities are shares in a company. - Funds are groups of shares, usually with a common goal. For example, you could have a technology fund that invested in 50 tech firms. Because of the spread risk they're less risk (and thus less reward) but obviously, safer. They're for the more longer term. - You can make a lot of money. You can buy and sell in the same day, same...minute and make dem monies, or lose dem monies. - I've seen companies delisted/go bust/enter administration, and people with those shares literally lose everything. - A common one is people buying football team shares, but they either, just sit there...doing nothing, or just..banter vybez. - Typically, in stocks and shares accounts, brokers will charge for the actual account (some places charge a percentage, some people charge a flat fee) and then charge for the actual purchase and sale of shares too. - Dividends - these things are cash payouts from companies, to the share holders, usually made from profits that the company makes. Usually they are regular, and they can be varying amounts of money. This is a "good" way to make money in some cases...like...super well off people can just have a portfolio of shares and live off of the dividends. - Etc. - Yawn. I guess I'm not too great at saving. I've got a lot of hobbies, don't live in a cheap area, and don't want to have a depressing life so go on the odd holiday/buy the odd console etc, but I'm pretty happy with my choices. Of course, it's a shame that we don't have money for a house, but it's just one of those things.
  20. Conflict With Neighbours?

    I've been parking in the garage, but not even seen or heard him since. It's more the fact that he called me names (Lol). Yeah, absolutely, we'd love to move out but can't do so yet. Saving for a holiday, so after that we'll save to move out (because we have decided not to save to buy a house).
  21. Jury Service

    As a few others have mentioned, lots of employers will pay some or all of your wages, and the remainder you can make up through loss of earnings so as far as I'm aware, you won't be hindered (unless in Charlie's case you're self employed/day rate/type thing). You get a decent amount for food each day which is cool (although I didn't claim anything in the end). They're surprisingly accommodating (at least, my court people were) in regards to longer cases; they tend to not pick for cases that they think will be longer at the end of the week, and they'll try to pick from jurors who are on their first week rather than their second. On top of that, some people had said that they had childcare issues the following week, so didn't have to be called at all towards the end of their service. I'm surprised that so many people are adverse to it. I felt like a lottery winner, and it was easily one of the best things I've ever done...in my life.
  22. Jury Service

    It's more liberal than I expected. As Blade said, the only thing you can't talk about is what happens in the jury room.
  23. Your film diary 2017

    Awesome, off to see it today. Finally saw 12 Angry Men. Loved it. Classic. Some really cool moments in there (the knife! hnnggg) amazing. I'm shy of old films because I'm a stupid young person (who is nearly 30) but yeah...awesome. I've loved all things jury service since I did it last year.
  24. Mainstream Piracy

    Hello. So, piracy. The Kodi/Kodie seems to have hit the "mainstream". I heard a few people talking about it a few months ago, and then yesterday I went round a family/friends house and they had it, and my uncle-in-law handed me the remote and said "You can find any film on this", and I was like hmmm and he was like "I don't know how it does it", and I explained it's illegal and he said "It's not illegal, it's from Amazon". (He's not stupid or anything, just not a tech savvy guy...) Anyway, a long distant "friend" just messaged me on Facebook, basically I had recommended an older film and she nonchalantly said "Cool, I've got Kodie so I'll watch it now". I'm bothered by the nonchalance. Do people not realise? I mean. I'm not squeaky clean myself, but I think there's a line. Right? What is the line? What's morally acceptable to you?!
  25. Nintendo Switch - Happy Switchmas Everyone!

    Superchill. Doesn't make me nervous at all.
