They are bulbs and not LED, I did not think you could get non-LED bulbs any more.

Not all types were “banned” and even then existing stockpiles can be sold.
Smaller halogen bulbs are still fairly common.

Had this from the local furniture shop the other day.

Inside the shop, they sell posh stuff that I can't afford, but out on the front, they put out cheap second hand bits and as I walk past is most days, I always end up seeing stuff I like, but don't necessarily have the room for. No idea where I'm going to put this yet as I'll need to clear some space, but hopefully it'll become another console testing area. Seems worth the £15 anyway.

I bought a load of wood, and some strapping men to turn it into a lean-to.

It's pretty hefty, for sure. It is designed to fit six socially-diatanced guests (and us). By the time they're actually allowed to come around again the heaters might have arrived.

I'm going to say "no".

It's probably always Pepsi Max, too.

Yeah, but he's still got all those strapping men hanging about, so they take up some space.

Also, on the PS5. Not trying to yuk anyone's yums, but the PS5 controller is an ugly old thing, isn't it? Looks like it will be immediately grubby and looks somehow unfinished (though reviews suggest it's a thing of wonder to play with, which is what matters, obv).

Yeah, Sony aren't winning any aesthetic wars this time around, either with the console or the controller.

I much prefer the PS controllers over the Xbox. The Xbox sticks always feel too high that make accuracy in twitch shooters more of a pain. And the buttons are better.

The new Xbox controller is disappointingly the exact same thing again. But with a share button! Whoop.
