My brother has just been to Waitrose and said the shelves were empty, but that might just be people unexpectedly spending Christmas at home and having to get a shop in?

Yeah lots of factors at play being this close to a locked down Christmas. Shops up here seem fine stock wise.

Powered up my A1200 and all seems fine, except I can’t see anything on the screen because the CRT TV we have didn’t come with a remote and you can’t tune in on RF without one.

Sod’s law means that I threw out most of our composite/SCART adapters just the other day on the basis that they were taking up too much space and we didn’t need them as all of our other consoles have their own proprietary cable.

Cheap composite cable off Amazon is now on the way to be delivered tomorrow.

I had a problem getting regular composite cables to work with one of my Amigas (can't remember which model, unfortunately) in that when used with either the modulator or plugged into the end socket, the image was always black and white. I never did figure out why, so I ended up buying a dedicated Amiga scart lead instead. Hopefully it was just an issue isolated to my particular Amiga though and you'll be fine.

Wait... are we not supposed to be doing that? Due to a lack of space, I've got two in the bedroom - not hooked up or anything.. just lying around.

Certainly, after 1st Jan the supply of new Amigas in the UK is going to be extremely limited. Stockpiling them is just common sense.

I fear I may be stockpiling the wrong kinds of guns ahead of the food riots though.

In the Hungry Times after Brexit you'll be wishing you had that additional added sugar! Calories will be hard to come by.

Reduced sugar.

PRO TIP - Branston beans are where it's at.

Being diabetic.. kinda a good thing to reduce sugar. They still taste good. Beans and Ketchup, should always be Heinz. Brown sauce HP. Everything else is fine :)

Disagree. Branston beans are better than Heinz, I find. They do reduced sugar, too x

Aldi's Corale Baked Beans are the best.

Always had to have Heinz Ketchup until I saw a blind taste test on TV that put Asdas, smart price ketchup at the top, I scoffed, I tasted... I converted.

Sugar thing makes sense.

Heinz thing does not make sense.

Branston make better beans.

Give their lower sugar offering a try.

It is personal taste. I like my Heinz beans.

I like how the bean juice soaks in the toast. :)

I got given a version (I think it was called photon) when I was little, but it didn't work so mum and dad took it back for a refund instead of a replacement, and so I never got to try laser tag toys at home.

The beans would clearly all fit on the same shelf with a simple reorganisation, it's twisting my melon man.

There’s a thread on Twitter of chaotic fridges that’d have you apoplectic.

Edit: here

https://twitter.com/madevi/status/1342015403237715969




More edit: why does everyone have so much food in their fridge? How does it all get eaten before it goes off?!

They could yes.. but that would involve time and effort. Plus I will use the over flow ones first :)

Unless some one wants to organise my pantry, it stays how it is :P

My fridge is normally full and it's a tall jobby. I eat 4-5 meals a day and have two very hungry children though...

The beans issue is a diversion from what's really important, i.e. what in the name of Beelzebub is THIS abomination?
