  1. General TV Thread

    I had mixed feeelings about this show when I saw season 1. I liked the realisation of the time period, and the tech, and the crazy atmosphere, but I thought though the characters had promise, they ended up a bit two-dimensional, and the show got a bit cyclical, with Joe repeatedly letting down Gordon etc. I ended up giving up very early on in season 2. Do you think it's worth persevering with?
  2. Stranger Things

    Has nobody else seen season 2 yet? The first few episodes are a little bit slow, but after that it's brilliant, with the possible exception of
  3. What Have You Bought?

    Good choice. The dialogue and voice acting in Firewatch is a level above anything I've previously encountered in a game.
  4. Random PC shutdowns

    Fair enough, the issue probably isn't with the Windows installation then.
  5. Random PC shutdowns

    I'd still recommend running sfc /scannow before fixing the installation/replacing the mobo etc.
  6. Random PC shutdowns

    Do you get a BSOD, or does it just turn off by itself? Try entering the command sfc /scannow into an administrator terminal, and waiting for it to complete - this will check the integrity of your Windows installation. And following on from Shorty's comment about viruses, did you run any kind of AV software?

    Don't worry, you can watch this to make up for it:

    It looks like you're behind some kind of Cloudflare architechture, which is unusual for a residential IP.
  9. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Do you have a dynamic IP, and if so, do you get the problem when you're assigned a specific address? Edit: Looks like you do have a dynamic IP - check if it's always the same when you get the error.
  10. Questions

    Yeah, lots of spam accounts are probably just automated, and just trawl the web searching for forums, outfox the captchas or outsource them to people who'll do them for cheap, then scrape the forum and use some kind of algorithm to generate and/or seach for vaguely plausible stuff to post.
  11. I am, albeit separated by several generations... sadly I missed the opportunity to celebrate though, what with not being employed by the water industry and all...

  12. Hey Grunch, are you related to Sir Joseph Bazalgette perchance?

     

    Apparently today is the 151st anniversary of the opening of the Crossness pumping station. So if you are then cause for celebration I reckon.

  13. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Looks like n-europeforums.com is no longer registered (possibly following the host changeover), which is what that tab links to. @Shorty should be able to fix the link.
  14. Liquid water found on Mars!

    I can now imagine a company selling Martian water at £100 a bottle. It's cool news anyway, albeit not too far away from what was already known/expected. I think SMBC said it best when it comes to NASA announcements.

    In English title capitalisation is getting gradually less common, although it's still fairly frequently used. And note that when you do it, you shouldn't capitalise more functional words, like prepositions and articles and so on. But more importantly, Squeenix use the capitalised version as the title of the game! You can't tell from the game logo because it's all in caps, but see their official website - although their Twitter capitalises the is too! The plot thickens. [/pointless rambling]
