      That's what you get for ordering a pizza in a chipper.

        Headache, sore throat and latterly chest feels like I am inhaling a cactus. I woke at 3am and was going to get a sheet of paper and write down the whereabouts of all I possess. Wrapped up warm, slept again and was ok this morning. By lunchtime my chest felt like i was inhaling a cactus again. I got a hot water bottle and left it on my chest for the afternoon. Smell and appetite seem fine. It's likely i just have a seasonal dose.

          Nephew whose wife is sick tested clear today but the 20 month old was positive so even if its not a false negative he's likely to have it by next week.
          tyvm - I did a Tesco click and collect and gave instructions for them to just chuck it in my boot. First time doing it, great service tbh, surprised it's not more popular, particularly amongst those on daily commutes.

            Hopefully the SA wine will allow you to convalesce in proper style - GL.

                Really hope the old fashioned 'fruit and veg' shop will make a comeback, can think of a few pubs and coffee shops that would be suitable locations. Seems to be a significant area where buying online just can't compare.

                  This is interesting on mail-in ballots in the US. Nearly all of which won't be counted on election night.

                    Come on Frances you lunatic. She's an MEP? I would have thought she'd be considered unelectable after her time in Irish politics.
                    Frances Fitzgerald is emerging as a likely candidate to be one of Ireland's nominated pair of possible commissioners to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

                      If its not a clear win for Biden on Election night the stars are aligned for an an earthquake of end of US democracy scale.

                      Can't see how it doesn't end up being close with billions of dollars being spent targeting the 1 or 2% who will matter on election day who also happen to be stupidest people on the planet.

                          And Trump has created this whole thing on postal votes precisely due to knowing that there was a decent likelihood of this being the case - of him being 'winner' on election night, but not winner when the mail-in votes are added in. I don't know why the states would be announcing massively incomplete results in any case, but thats another issue.

                                    Ignorant seems a little too weak. Pretty sure you would get off at trial for manslaughter.

                                      I've often wanted to fire up the petrol hedge cutter at 8am on a Sunday to get my own back on one particular night time noisy cnut. Collateral damage too severe though.

                                      I hold silver in tit for tat, and I love you for that

                                        On that, I've a bit of timber to cut with a jigsaw out the back garden.

                                        What is a respectable time to do it on a Sunday?

                                            They had the Live at Vicar St vinyl in Tower Records yesterday as part of Record Store Day. Thought of you as soon as I saw it.

                                              This might get more visibility and a quicker answer in here than the other thread.

                                              Question, two tables left last night in an MTT which had 900 runners and I am in the big blind. Player busts during this hand to mean we are down to 9 and forming the final table. I get placed in the big blind again on the final table. Is that a thing? The one big blind is massively important as I was down to 4bb with 3 5K WSOP packages up top and two cash payments for 4th, 5ht. Stacks are all in the 10bb range so one double and I am back in it but by the time the blinds pass through me again, it was a huge hit which means I have dust. It means I go from having some fold equity on my shoves to having none which is crucial. I checked the hand history this morning to double-check I didn't make a mistake and I was definitely the big blind twice in a row.

                                                Its a random redraw when the tables break and you go to 1 table. Could easily have ended up in the cut off than in the big blind. Unlucky.

                                                  Right, so all final tables are just formed randomly? I guess I have never paid much attention to it before because it was never so impactful or stacks aren't so shallow that it makes such a massive difference. I thought it was formed based on some rules.

                                                    There are two ways you can end up on a new table, as part of a rebalance, in which case you will never be BB twice, or as a redraw, on which case everyone has an equal chance of getting the big blind.

                                                      Yes, it's different than a rebalance as HJ mentions above because you dont have another table to balance it with. The guy who was BB on the other table has the same chance as you being the BB on the redraw for FT. You just got unlucky this time.

                                                      Comment


                                                        Thanks, that is pretty sick given my stack size and I have a 1/9 chance of ending up there again. Between that and a couple of nights earlier bubbling another 5k ticket with 6 left and 5 tickets after the sb shoves 6,10 and I call AK with the same stack size so for the ticket and he rivers a 6, Got $150 for the bubble. I have run horribly in big spots when it matters over the last few days. Then losing a flip with AK against 88's in the 5k itself when the guy snapped my shove with the 88's like he has AA's Thank fuck this WSOP is nearly over. Tournaments are so fucking cruel. Few bits of run good or bad in certain spots make such a difference that they can take years to even out when you play them so infrequently.

You basically play Tetris in these really trippy 3D environments with cool music blasting out.

Great way to get out of your head when needed.

                                                                              Two free experiences which are top tier, Mission ISS and Lone Echo (Meant Echo Arena).

                                                                              The good games that I have played, which have huge repeatability are Beat Saber, Superhot, Tetris Effect, and Pistol Whip (PW is some fun). Thrill of the fight is one people seem to love but I couldn't get into it)

                                                                              Best of:

                                                                              Social - Keep Talking Nobody Explodes (that can be played with someone outside VR)

                                                                              Puzzle - The Room VR, Fishmans Tale

                                                                              I haven't really done much exploring on the social side within VR such as Rec Room etc. Bunch of other stuff I am probably missed which I can't think of at the minute and they seemed to have released a bunch of high-end games recently which I haven't got around to trying.

                                                                              Reddit forum which you can search for most things related - https://www.reddit.com/r/OculusQuest/

                                                                              Look into sidequest to download stuff which hasn't quite made the oculus store yet but it being developed (All free)

                                                                              Alright so now you are thinking. Fucking hell that all costs a fortune. So how open are you to pirating stuff? Link. I'll PM you a link to download the APK's. I usually pirate stuff and if I end up playing it alot then I end up paying for it out of guilt. Just be aware you risk having the headset bricked if Oculus so chooses but so far that hasn't happened to anyone. I think once they choose to clamp down on it they will give a warning first so I think it is safe enough up until that point.

                                                                              Edit - Mission ISS is the only thing I experienced proper VR sickness in.

                                                                              Edit - Should also say that you have the option to play the really high end VR games on the quest through mirror software if you have a good enough PC and top-notch broadband but not something I have done - Link

I popped in to pick it up and ended up dropping 200 euro, nearly half of it on a 5-record Sun Ra box set from his time in Egypt in 1971. Currently trying to ensure MrsHiFi doesn't get wind of this after a couple of particularly prolific sprees in recent weeks!

Would be 9 if not for sound issues. That said it's a great concept. Fantastic editing and cinematography. Cast is very strong also.

I might wait till I see if they can fix the issues before going to it. Good to hear a very positive review though as I am really looking forward to it.

It's surely a massive driver of VR to have that immersive an experience. Don't like that Oculus requires a Facebook account or what they are going to do with all that data (filthy data in my case), but thought the Valve VR looked class.

Only realised afterwards that it was a widespread complaint online. Some funny cunts on reddit suggested Nolan is stone deaf as an obnoxiously loud score and ott sound effects are a recurring theme in his movies.

                                                                                            The only thing I'll say is don't go in half asleep, actually grab a double espresso beforehand as it's quite a ride when things kick off.

                                                                                                    Meh, it's not a big deal for most people. Just that I personally shut my Facebook down as dislike it so much and don't like the idea of being made to open one again for something unrelated.
                                                                                                    What an awful decision. Seems like Zucks is still aiming to have FB as the ready player one universe of the future. Two year grace period when we will hopefully see loads more players entering the market and hopefully a backtrack on that crap from them. The problem is FB has the resources and is already quite a way ahead in terms of value and the platform itself. I'd happily drop them in the future for a better alternative. John Carmack one of the Oculus founders is such an impressive guy though in the industry that he alone could keep them ahead. I recently watched him on the Rogan podcast. He absolutely lives for this project and still codes with a huge percentage of his time. Takes time away from his family, books himself into hotels for say a week, and does marathon coding sessions alone. Good podcast overall on the state of VR and what could lie ahead in the future.

After your post earlier I was trying to find a decent book on the promise and potential impact of VR. Couldn't see anything decent at all - did you ever hear of anything?

It's crude, and has obvious holes in it if you give it even more than a cursory glance, but it could be effective.

Unlikely he'll tour again as his recovery from a stroke has been slow enough. There has been a wonderful recording of a live concert from '82 that's well worth buying as it was organised explicitly to try to funnel cash to him to help his recovery.

                                                                                                                          Ignore the outrage and take a step back to think. Do you see the problem that using a term that refers to the systematic murder of people for the colour of their skin, a practice that occurred recently and has many modern-day equivalents, with the pressure on a politician to step down from a role into a comfortable pension?
