  1. Fortnite

    I had to dash off to drop my daughter at something. I wanted to drop you a message to tell you where I'd gone, but I don;t think I have you on FB or messenger or ... Motion controls work great with joycons but they're totally broken when using a pro controller. It's a travesty. Who on earth would want to turn their controller like that for motion controls? I'm gutted.
  2. General Switch Discussion

    Thank you! I've added myself, and will probs send out a load of requests tonight. I'm already linked up with a few people via facebook/twitter but this should add more.
  3. General Switch Discussion

    Is there a list of forum members' friend codes anywhere, or do you just have to use them from profiles, etc?
  4. Fortnite

    I'm struggling with the lack of motion/gyro controls in this. Splatoon muscles memory kicks in, I'm waving my controller around, then I'm dead. :-(
  5. Netflix

    I watched it and mostly enjoyed it. A nice brainless show, so don't expect too much from it.
  6. Job woes/wins

    We must have overlap in colleagues.
  7. Star Trek Masturbatathon

    I've just started listening to a podcast that is new to me: http://trek.fm/mission-log-home Each episode they analyse a star trek episode, and they're doing them in order. They talk about the plot, the themes, how well it holds up today, and if there are any moral messages. I'm only just a few episodes in (and I started with TNG, so ep 97, I think) but it's making me want to listen to TOS because they reference it all the time and make it sounds good.
  8. Weight Loss & Fitness 2017

    Anyone else on Strava? Add me: https://www.strava.com/athletes/2541691 I've entered a Tatton 10K on November 11th so I'm training for that at the moment, loosely following a plan by a guy called Pfitzinger. I've also stuck myself in a calorie deficit for the last couple of weeks to get down to race weight, which makes me miserable. Checked this morning and I'm at 10st2lbs and my goal is 10st so I'm not far off.
  9. New Software!

    It took me a long time to understand this joke because I didn't think you'd ever be so mean.
  10. Star Trek Discovery (2017)

    Yeah, can we not stick something 30 years after TNG? That way we can have nifty cameos with the cast from the different 90s series. This trailer just makes me think they're gonna mess up some timeline or established part of canon. Actually can I just have another 10 seasons of TNG?
  11. Star Trek Discovery (2017)

    I'm not feeling it.
  12. I don't even know. We never follow up with references here, so I can imagine other companies also don't bother.

    American-centric, but just check out the FAQ on the appropriate subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/financialindependence/wiki/faq There's also https://www.reddit.com/r/leanfire and https://www.reddit.com/r/FIREUK/
  14. Savings/Investments

    Everyone's situation is different, so there's no rule that fits all. Everyone's handling of risk is different too. My mortgage rate is so low, that I've taken on some risk and am paying into a S&S ISA instead of overpaying the mortgage. Property is great because there's an instant replacing of rent with something that actually adds to your personal wealth. Having said that, something like the FTSE 100 has on average, after inflation, increased about 5% each year for the last 20 years (taking into account the dotcom bubble and the 2008 banking crisis) so for the last 10 years you'd have made 63% on any investment you made then.
