I need to buy one of those. It’s definitely the bottleneck in my PC now.

I managed to get use of a GTX 1060 6GB so my GTX 970 has been moved to the "server", mainly to help with Plex stuff (hardware encoding assistance). Unfortunately, anything other than idling at the desktop causes the PSU to cut out. Hence, new PSU. Long overdue, truth be told

Edit: "Cool story, bro"

Is that code for ‘stole from work’? ;)

I bought an original press kit for one of my favourite flimums. The owner used it for notes on reviewing it. I think they liked it.

i suspect it was done in theatre at a premiere/first screening, so therefore dark and probably packed with other journos

You are almost certainly correct about the messy handwriting. That would have been handed out at a “press” screening for reviewers. Generally happens the week before the premiere but can happen much much earlier from time to time.

The radio controlled car looks fucking the bomb though.

Some of them are very old and very heavy. Better to look at than ride. It's more a collection now than loads I ride on. I do ride three of them regularly though :)

Picked up another handheld Mega Drive, the Retrogen.

Attachment:

The Retrogen is on the left, the Pocket MD is on the right. Not sure which is better yet - the Retrogen has six buttons and is region-free, although I prefer the Pocket MD screen.

Yup. It feels pretty crap to use too. I'll mainly be using it to test MD carts anyway, so at least it'll be for light use.

The one on the right is a pretty stupid design. When you're making a thing that exists entirely and only to play Megadrive games why in the name of fuck would you use the Playstation's button layout and labelling? I mean obviously the answer is, "Because that what they had lying around shitty Chinese knock-off factory that it was built in", but still.

It's an odd design generally. It didn't come with a charger so it was dirt cheap, but I notice the connector was the same as the GBA SP, so I wondered if it started off being a GBA clone at first.

At least SNES owners are better served with the Supaboy, with its better layout and even support for original controllers

I've always been tempted by one of those but I don't own enough SNES cartridges to make it viable.

I also own several handheld devices that will play SNES games but that's not the point.

Oh, that's never the point. :D I've got 15+ actual SNES consoles piled up at the moment, but if I can't resist a new retro gadget.

That reminds me - when using the Retro Freak console and using the feature that dumps the cartridge ROM to the memory card so that you can play it without, I seem to have unlocked some Easter eggs along the way -

1) Transfer something like 50 games to the device - unlocked some sound effect (no idea where this is.. it just popped up as a message)
2) Transfer 100 games to the device - it played a five-minute scrolling animation thing all about the reason for keeping retro games alive, with music, end credits and a photo of someone's cat. :)

Deebot looks very similar to the robot vacuum cleaner we have bought and swapped/refunded from Aldi many times.

Do the wheels jam up on Deebot? I had to return a robovac because that kept happening and was getting annoying. It was a cheapo brand I'd never heard of with suspiciously good reviews, however. When it worked it was brilliant, even daring to go under my bed.

Hmm, not really. It does need a clear floor though, or it'll wind cables up and get sad and beep at you.

Sounds totally like the Aldi one. Sterling, it was called.

But then, with 3 kids 2 dogs and 1 cat it was always going to have a tough job.

(the pedant in me says "Bluegrass is generally banjo, bass, guitar and mandolin, what you are suggesting is a jug band or possibly skiffle band")
