    I decided that I wanted to change things up in the gameroom, but I'm out of space, so first something had to leave. I've had No Good Gofers for 6 years now, and I don't play it as much as the other games, so off it goes... Of course, what better to replace a Pat Lawlor game with than another Pat Lawlor game: So now the pinball room looks like this:

    Our one-year anniversary is in 10 days which is just nuts! It's going to be a blowout kind of weekend with tons of rare barrels on tap, a special run of glassware we are going to sell, giveaways, etc. We just got our additional taps for (mostly) non-beer installed, so a couple of wines on tap, a cane-sugar soda and root beer on tap, cold brew coffee on nitro, and a dedicated gluten-free beer line. We are also about to start our on-premise-only bottle list with things we've set aside and we've forged some great relationships with our favorite Wisconsin breweries which is going to lead to fun things in the near future. I continue to dream about location #2, it is at least starting to become a glimmer on the horizon if things continue well. Beer rules!

    If I allowed Hollywood personnel's off-screen behavior to affect my movie watching, I'd be stuck staring at a black screen.

    So glad to see you all again! I just had to buy a new computer. It was very traumatic for me. But I had everything transferred to an external hard drive and with Chrome it still looks kinda like James' computer. You guys look awesome.

    Well I survived my first marathon... which just happened to end up the hottest on record for London, and it knocked me back hard. My times were way, way out from everything I had achieved in training, but I finished, and I had energy to spare (it even allowed me to semi-sprint the finish line). Feeling good, ready to recover and move forward to get the last of this weight off me and really begin to challenge my running times. And now... sleep.

    Could not be happier to have woken up to news of Del Toro being rewarded with two Oscars. I’d hope we won’t have to hear of him struggling to get projects made again.

    Big PB fan here! When it comes to PB, the filmmakers of have carefully curated key defining aspects to the spread's fifty-plus years of stories. Here are a couple: 1. Peanut Butter by Proctor & Gamble, Volumes 1-4 (1958-2012). Peanut Butter wasn’t always an iconic spread. After its debut in the 1880s Peanut Butter went MIA for years — that is, until the late '50s , when Proctor and Gamble made something special: Jif. Proctor & Gamble used oils other than peanut oil in its hydrogenation process, and sweetened the recipe, adding sugar and molasses. 2. Peanut Butter Team-up by Smuckers, Volumes 1-3 (2012-current). After P & G ended their run, Smuckers took over in 2012 and revitalized the spread with a series of team-ups, including honey, cinnamon, and maple syrup. 3. Although not Peanut Butter per se, you might want to check out Jif's other spreads like Almond Butter and Hazelnut, which answer the question "what if, in some kind of Elseworld, an almond nut or hazelnut became a butter?

    Guardians vol2 was added to Sky's streaming service today so I watched it this evening. I absolutely LOVED it.

    I picked up the Groundhog Day UHD at Best Buy. It’s a wonderful disc. Outside of the opening scene which is a bit grain heavy, the HDR pass really brings the transfer alive. Daylight scenes in particular really pop and the expanded color gamut really gives what is an intentionally drab looking film an impressive showing. Black levels are spot on and the detail here is a noticeable jump from the previous BD. There’s a wonderful thin film of grain throughout that gives the transfer a beautiful appearance. Sony continue to kill it with their catalog releases. I just don’t get why this is a B.B. exclusive is all.

    Good news everyone...I seem to have made the problem go away after doing a factory reset through the displays software. I tried the cold reboot but never heard any "clicks" while holding the power button down and it didn't seem to work. After a factory reset and going through the initial display setup I fired up Blade Runner 2049 and went straight to the same scene as before. Please to say I am unable to see any defects in the picture now! Sorry to waste everyones time. I should have tried that before posting on here but I guess I was hoping it was a quick fix in the settings. Thanks again for your help though. Now to update the firmware and cross fingers it doesn't come back.

    I've a Blu-ray player to sell and have also decided to sell my Vita which I am surprised to see still goes for a respectable sum on eBay (particularly boxed OLED models like mine). So whatever I get for those will go towards Switch funds. Now stop bullying me, you bastards!

    Old thread but, nowhere else seemed appropriate for this post... The wife got me a new Nespresso machine today. It’s the Expert Series with the separate milk frother: https://www.nespresso.com/uk/en/order/machines/original/magimix-expert-anthracite-grey Anyway, it’s pretty awesome Any Nespresso machine is pretty solid for a single shot coffee but, this one has Bluetooth to set a coffee or change settings on the machine, you can que up a coffee to brew at a set time and it makes a damn good Lungo and Americano with custom coffee and water volumes for each type. Very nice and the milk frother has settings for different milk-foam densities which is something I never thought I’d use but, was pretty cool to have when I did try it. The wife got it through Nespresso themselves on a monthly payment scheme and, the monthly payment amount is credited back to our account for coffee pods each month so it affectively doesn’t cost me anything (we spend about £30 per month on Nespresso pods now and this one costs £35 per month). Never owned a coffee machine like this but it’s almost like a mobile phone contract so that was kinda cool to have as an option too.

    That 3.56:1 game layout, in full. For reference, the steering wheel is about steering wheel sized; it's ridiculously immersive despite the black line.

    My wife is addicted to Rush of Blood. She's actually gotten more use out of the VR at the moment than I have. I just about fell out of my chair this weekend when I went down to my den and found my wife playing Resident Evil 7 in VR. I might have finally found the vehicle to make my wife a gamer.:)
