Bosch!!! I've bought a hammer drill to be given to me for Christmas.

I wouldn't have bothered, but having recently done an electrical safety course, I'm having doubts about the ancient Black and Decker I inherited from my father a in-law.

An Alexa Dobot and four Tile Jeyrings for (I thought) a good price.

Given how much I have fallen in love with mine I got one for Mum after giving her a demo over the phone. I think it was the "Alexa, play me country music" part that got her all giddy with excitement.

Image

Got extra presents for my brother and sister in law, given they're hosting Christmas.

Image

And this for my sis.

Image

I then realised my mother likes spending time in her kitchen preparing stuff etc. So I got her this so she can instruct it to play country music lol

Image

Finally I bought something for myself. Something I didn't really want, or need, but it was so cheap (£79) I couldn't resist. I found it last night and thought about ordering one in white. Typical I get up after sleeping on it and the white one is now £249.

So I grabbed the black one. I will more than likely use it in my man cave.

She does a mean fart though.

I have that Pac-man one (natch...) but I saw that there's a Bubble Bobble/Rainbow Islands one being released soon. I like the looks of that!

Love the way it’s a completely different shape and size to the early years set. Much like the band, I guess.

I’ve had taped copies of all but one of these albums for years, the first one being released in 1975. The one I didn’t have on tape (Please Don’t Touch) was one I actually bought on CD. But the tapes are all in the loft and haven’t been converted to digital, so I haven’t played them for years. I’ve got most of his more recent work on CD, but still feel that these early ones are his best. Seeing a set of five for just over a tenner, I thought it was time to pay for what I’ve previously enjoyed for free. The one at the bottom wasn’t in the box set, but I had to have it to complete the group I had on tape.

When you say 'tape', what do you actually mean? Genuine question, because I think that word means different things to different generations and certainly nothing you've shown there would be my definition. Asking out of genuine interest. :-)

I meant I had them on audio cassette tapes, that I recorded from the originals on vinyl, usualy borrowed from friends, despite the warning that 'Home taping is killing music.'. I still have a (barely operational) twin casette deck, a Sony Walkman and around a two hundred tapes in the loft. When I was still buying vinyl records I'd immediately copy them to tape to preserve the vinyl originals and only play the LPs again if a tape copy got damaged

I understand why you asked the question, for even now people of my age tend to say we've 'taped' a TV programme, when in actuallity we've recorded it on a hard disk recorder of some sort, or even on an SSD. We referred to taping when we first got CD/DVD recorders as well, after that period of recording on audio cassette and VHS video.

The first recordings I ever made were on a Grundig reel-to-reel tape recorder, usually from Pick Of The Pops on the BBC Light Programme on Sunday afternoons. These were recorded through a microphone as none of our radios had a 'line out' socket in those days, so there was often background noise on the tapes. This was well before tape cassettes came on the scene. I remember the first time I saw a Sony Walkman cassette player. One of my colleagues brought it in to the office and the idea of being to have two albums on a single tape, that I could listen to anywhere, was a real revelation. It still amazes me that we've gone from reel-to-reel to personal recorders in such a relatively short time.

"Recorded" is just as wrong.

Young'uns say "saving", which strikes me as closer to what's actually happening.

I'm not convinced. Saving, to me, means more like making a near instantaneous dump copy of whatever you're talking about. In the case of TIVOing something your copy is being stream-recorded onto the hard drive in real time, so exactly the same way as happened when recording onto a VHS or audio cassette just with a different medium holding the result.

It's doing that constantly on a TiVo box though, right? When you press the button it does whatever it does internally to make sure it doesn't get deleted. I'm fairly comfortable with that being called "saving".

I suspect that no term exists specifically for that process. Maybe 'TiVoing' is what it ought to be.

And we'd better not get started on 'Get a series link.' That implies that availing yourself of one episode or programme is a single link.




Hmmmmmmm...... availing .........

Wait, why would it be doing that? And across every single channel that's available? How much disc space would that take up?

The only time I can think it would be doing something like that would be if you use the 'pause live TV' thing at which point it's going to start constantly buffering up content for the period of time you paused. But that's a specific use case and you're unlikely to be recording the channel you're watching live so I'm not even sure it's all that relevant.

It always records whatever channel you are on, for as long as you are on that channel (to some time limit, maybe 3 hours or something).

The current channel and the last channel, as long as nothing else is being taped ;) Time limit depends on if you're watching in HD, I think.

What a ball ache, having the decorators in. Having a 60 litre fish tank to move is a good reason for just painting around it. Or just leaving it as it is, it was only decorated five years ago........ or was it nine?

Went to the running show. Got quite a good discount on these.

They should help with the boredom of my long runs.

I nearly bought some yesterday purely because one of them was the Shinobi one, but then I'd end up getting the other four in the series: Jet Set Radio, Space Channel 5, Super Monkey Ball and House of the Dead. Probably still will at some point though.
