  1. Carrick has a rough few games coming up to act as interim.
  2. I’m working as an analytics manager for Defence Equipment & Support. It’s a branch for the MoD. My team builds reports for the finance area of DE&S. We are given data from different areas (Navy, Airforce etc) which again in itself has different content (operating expenditures, program cost reviews etc) and we build the ETL process to house the data in our trusted data warehouse, then we model the data following kimball methodology and finally build reports / create KPIs we think might be relevant to the areas. They’ll have requirements they want to see, but we also have freedom to explore the data and try to output what we think might be valuable information to them. It’s really fascinating data we’re provided, but given the content, can’t really tell you more than that haha.
  3. Watford 4 - 1 Man Utd FML 🤦🏽‍♂️
  4. Legitimate question, probably more so aimed at Off Topic than gaming side. Can threads be created for new events happening in the world? Reason I ask is newsworthy things seem to be missing in off topic (unless there’s posts in a master thread I’ve missed). Example being Kyle Rittenhouse (unless that’s not worthy of an official thread here which i’d not disagree with whatsoever, but it’s kinda a bit of a conversational piece globally at the moment)
  5. Writing for a site elsewhere went well for a while, but bills resulted in knuckling down hard career wise. So Analytics and Statistics is my bag now. I still dip my toes into GSRR but, kid and career sadly (weird way to look at it) came first.
  6. Took a flexi day on Friday and went to the cinema without wife or toddler to enjoy Ghostbusters: Afterlife. I’m glad that they completely disregarded the 2016 film. I’m also very happy with their respectful acknowledgment of Harold Ramis. The final 15 minutes got me good.
  7. Are @ReZourceman & @Rummy still active? That’s my question
  8. Good stuff? I remembered my credentials for this site after a long long time away from it. Oh, no my dad got discharged from hospital today “cancer free” after a rough rough time (Covid + Cancer can both suck a bag of cocks)
  9. Merry Christmas N-Europe. Enjoy the day, the family, the friends, the champagne and presents (doesn't need to be in that order)
  10. So enjoying the Terrorist Hunts on the BETA alot. Even lone wolf they're good fun. But I'm a little disappointed that there won't be any single player campaign for this.
  11. I thought I dropped you guys a message with my mobile number on. Maybe I didn't. Gonna go to the Rezzed show in April next if you guys are along for that?
  12. What an awesome awesome weekend EGX was. Business and pleasure. We got to cut queues for games, got to avoid queuing up with civvies to get in, got interviewed after playing Halo and will feature on a reel of feedback on their site. Got interviewed for 1001up.com and tagged in whatrhinosaid.com. We scheduled a meetup with the staff from the board game section before EGX as they contacted us with regards to if we'd review board games on our site. So spent 3 hours playing games with them on Thursday night. They liked our EGX summary we did after the weekend so are officially in business with us sending us games to keep and review. Got front row seats to the Yohsida Q&A which was incredible. Such an awesome weekend. Gang Beasts was incredible, probably the highlight of it all. CupHead was also a massive surprise. If anyone was interested in our summaries we split them up into the 3 days we were there. Day 1 - http://geeksleeprinserepeat.com/2015/09/29/egx-2015-day-1/ Day 2 - http://geeksleeprinserepeat.com/2015/09/30/egx-2015-day-2/ Day 3 - http://geeksleeprinserepeat.com/2015/10/01/egx-2015-day-3/
  13. So this game is apparently.... terrible Pretty disappointing as I loved THPS in the day (Like I imagine post people did).

    Noted, PS+ is happening soon due to the other games coming out this winter so I'll give it another shot properly.
  15. So I've been dabbling back on GTAV since completing MGSV. I was aware that you could hold circle or B to enable action camera view, but had no idea that if you clicked the analogue stick down it enabled slow motion. This blew my mind. So naturally I went to Sandy Shores and found a buggy. Switched to action view and went to slow motion. From here I just drove around aimlessly in the desert. Getting air, hitting animals, smashing the car up, causing havoc all in slow mo goodness. I was papping away at the share button and these 2 pictures looked pretty good so thought I'd enter this thread for the first time.
  16. And another one down. Completed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Completed it a while back, but not been here for a little while.

    I was given a copy of Destiny from someone at work who bought it a year ago, then bought the legendary edition (i think) that came with Taken King and all the DLC. So he gave me the vanilla Destiny disc. I said I'd never get into it. I wanted to avoid it, but for free I'm not going to pass it up. I don't have PS+ so I'm only playing single player at the moment and just hit level 8. Not entirely convinced by it so far to be honest. I'm already finding some of the single player missions repetitive. Go here, fight these enemies then hold out while Ghost does some stuff with something and fight off 2 to 3 drop ships of enemies then level ends. I guess the Destiny experience is all about the online side though with raids and such?
  18. Could have been, I just checked my confirmation and I've been charged £38 fortunately. Arriving today apparently. Happy with that.
  19. 20th Anniversary Dual Shock controllers are £38 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-PlayStation-DualShock-20th-Anniversary/dp/B013C7L1QE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1443518963&sr=8-1&keywords=20th+anniversary+ps4+controller Seemed pretty cheap to me. Just bought one.
  20. Yeah got the bond with her to max. I guess I've just got to keep finishing side ops then. Read so many different things like you need mother base fully upgraded, need to have x number of completed developments. Hopefully it's as you say and triggered by a mission completion count.
  21. Apologies if it's already been answered. But I've just completed mission 31 (which holy shit had my adrenaline pumping). At the end of the chaos, there's lots of cut scenes and then...
  22. Well we had a chat and as been mentioned on here, yes the implant can be removed relatively hassle free. It turns out that as of late the pill has been causing my wife to have stomach aches and just genuinely not feeling fully fit. Again to show how naive I am about all this apparently the pill can have numerous different effects on different woman and they can change throughout the duration of taking the pill. Aslong as I've been with her she's been on the pill and fine. But the last few months worth have had her feeling less energetic and not 100%. She had been looking at it as her pill routine was finishing and weighed up the pros about ease and hoped it'd stop any pains. That's why she went with it. No intent on preventing a family in the future, just a change of contraception in the hope that stomach pains go. So perhaps an overreaction on my part when I was told while drunk, but I guess I'd liked to have known if she was hurting and that's what made her choose. She did say that it's not a 3 year fix, but just a new and less painful way hopefully. Unfortunately I wasn't in the greatest of states to discuss it all with her last night and she went to bed while I watched tv downstairs without the real reasoning behind it coming out till today. Again probably my fault as overreacting to it while drunk.
  23. When I'm 30 she will be 27, so perhaps that's on her mind that she isn't ready for that stage next. I appreciate its her body of course and have no objections at all to what she does in that respect. It's more so that I believed that we had discussed that next year once I hit 30, we were both in for it, but I guess not. I would have liked to discuss that form of contraception first ideally. I wouldn't have objected but would like to have known that she had that idea on her mind.
