  1. What Have You Bought?

    I'm full on envious of that. I'm itching to get a foldable, but I've been on Chinese phones for so many years paying out max of about £400-£500 per phone that a foldable just feels like too much of an expense.
  2. Marvel Fatigue?

    I think it's just so that people keep up their disney plus subscriptions. I only buy it when there's a series that I want to see but it seems like with Marvel and Star Wars I've been subbed for the last 6-8 months straight, and I really didn't mean/want to be. (I cancel it recurring as soon as I've renewed it.)
  3. Marvel's Phase 5

    It's all about the multiverse isn't it? Like that's the consistent theme through everything at the moment. Spiderman, Dr Strange, Loki, What If, Ms Marvel .... all giving us knowledge about the multiverse.
  4. Coding

    I did a bit of MatLab at uni, dabbled in VB.NET around that time (if you google "FAVC DVD" I wrote that!), but for the last 16 years I've been using a stats package at work called Stata that uses a simple scripting language you can write "programs" in that Stata can interpret. I found transitioning from one package to another okay back then but now my brain is old and brittle so I'd probably struggle. In stats the popular software packages are SAS (big industry - rubbish syntax), R (opensource, supported in academia, not very intuitive language) and Python (hot in data science, but I've not used it). The "color" thing is pretty prevalent for me as I'm always having to change colours in charts/figures.
  5. Baby Cube

    Which Children's hospital are you with? My son has an issue that means he has regular surgery and he's with Manchester Children's hospital. They are amazing and a slick machine. Good luck, hope it all goes well.
  6. Marvel's Phase 4

    Finished Ms Marvel last night and overall I think it was terrible. Worst marvel TV series easily. I'm not wordy enough to say why in a convincing way, but it was just bad. Wife thought it was okay, if that means anything.
  7. Happy birthday

    There's a proof in maths/statistics that shows the probability of any two people in a group sharing a birthday reaches 0.5, or 1/2, when there are just 23 members of the group. Feels nutty when you first hear it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_problem
  8. Doctor Who

    He is very good in sex education so if he brings some of that same energy he'll be great. I'm looking forward to it.
  9. Home Improvement / DIY

    I bought a pressure washer recently. It's satisfying to use but, if anyone else cares, you should wear waterproofs when operating one.
  10. Job woes/wins

    We had new staff photos taken at work and the photographer, who made everyone else look great, has made my forehead even bigger than it is in real life. Very disappointing. Or maybe I have a distorted sense of my own fivehead.
  11. UK Covid booster programme

    I've had the Pfizer jab three times now, and each time I've had a sore arm. Maybe a bit of a headache too, but I'm having issues with my glasses at the moment so it's difficult to say whether it's my glasses or the jab.
  12. General Movie Thread

    Can't they just let Jurassic Park die? Does anyone even like them anymore?
  13. What Have You Bought?

    The LCD screen on our thermostat just died over time. I did this weird thing (following a youtube tutorial!) where I dismantled it and heated it over the toaster, which revived it for a few months, but it's died again and the toaster method borked it more. Bought a smart thermostat and it's all set up to be controlled with an app or the google minis around the house.
  14. The Disney Thread

    As we get older, the proportional difference between our ages tends to 0. :-D
  15. The Disney Thread

    Teenwolf vibe to me!
