        I actually posted above completely forgetting that I am doing pizza tonight.

                I'm firmly convinced this is one of the political bets of a lifetime. The market is so far out of whack with reality, it's mad.

                    Yeah we were one of the first to get the new box to test it cos herself works for Virgin Media. Top class set up and a million times better than the old one. I'm at the parents house this evening using sky and I'd go so far as to say virgin is at least as good if not better now.

                      Trying to remember the last time I watched TV, as in Sky TV.

                      Oh yeah, watched some of the LLS last Fri night. That's prob it for the past 6 weeks or so.

                      Why tf am I paying for that shit.

                        Poker tournament Alert......

                        If any of ye fancy a game tomorrow night (Saturday)....

                        This will be the second year of this ga,e hosted by old IPB reg Caf

                        Last year was live in The Loft in Naas but this year will be under the Home Games on Pokerstars

                        It is a game in honour of his brother and my (our) old friend 72over

                        Its a €20 game with an optional rebuy and add-on.

                        Expected to be listed for 8-9pm to suit some Aussies who want to play.

                        Normally 50% goes to a charity chosen by Dave & Brian mum so this year it can tbe organised Live by the loft so they would like the winner to follow suit with their own or ask the organisers for thier chosen one.

                        "The more the merrier! €20 rebuy with a top up at the break. 50% of prize pool is to go to a charity (been chosen by my mother the last 2 years). Guessing this year it's up to the winners to donate it be cause its online where previously the Loft in Naas split it in half"

                        Anyway anyone from here that knew or met 72over knows what a loss is his to them.

                        Deets - Pokerstars: home club Club: 3224681 Code: Naasistheplace

                        I hope to be in and would be nice to have a few in for a beer and chat on here for the craic

                          like you analogy that previous election was a referendum on hilary, with this being one on trump, hope you're right

                            It's been about 7 years since I had contract telly like that in the house. I'm considering paying for now tv or some sort of sports package as stealing sport is more effort than it's worth at the moment. Otherwise a good internet connection and I'm not sure why anyone bothers

                              Is that Saorview thing foc?

                              I know Saor is Irish for free, but is it actually free?

                                  Before going in the oven.

                                  Roasted the peppers for 20 minutes and the chorizo for 10 minutes first. Also added some dried Italian herbs on top of the passata. Then it was adding the pizza mix, mozzarella, roasted peppers, chorizo and Parma ham.

                                    I've been waiting for that to pop up on sale for ages since you posted the video maybe six months ago.

                                    I don't know enough about what makes computers whir and do things, but I was thinking of getting a super-powered desktop for data work with that Ryzen9, the RTX3080 graphics card, and then just to make sure theres no plumbing issues: 64gb ram and a one terrabyte ssd.

                                    I've no idea what all those things would do together though. It could be the equivalent of homer going in a restaurant and ordering the most expensive meat stuffed with the second most expensive meat. So will have to research that a whole lot further. Is there something obviously flawed with that i wonder. Like maybe of the Ryzen and the RTX3080 only one could do the job and therefore it would be better just going for the best version of one, rather than both.

                                      I'd say we're five years without even a physical television. way way way longer without watching tv - tv just doesn't make sense and its all going to be out of business within a decade or two anyway as no-one growing up now is watching tv so there just won't be the audience. Not the content creation, but the idea of stations.

                                          The risk issue, it uncomfortably occurred to me today, is that Biden bombs at the debates. Remember the debate where Trump completely and utterly destroyed Little Marco? Something about how he was drinking water? Before it Marco was fine, Marco was a contender, Marco was going places. Then one little debate - and one little moment during that debate - and you couldn't even consider Marco as a politician you could look straight in the eyes anymore. What if, somehow, Trump does that to Biden? I'm not saying its going to happen. I sure as fuck hope it doesn't happen, given we have the same bet, but it *might* happen. So what I'm thinking is I'll wait personally until the first debate on the 29th and the minute Biden gets through it unscathed I'll dump the (baby sized) money truck into Biden again. Not that Biden needs to win the debate, just that he needs to not catastrophically lose it.

                                            I think it will be very different now. Trump had no record to defend then and could promise the world. At the time he was a truly revolutionary candidate - he promised change from the normal politicians. Unfortunately, it turned out that that change was an unmitigated disaster! Biden has so many easy vectors of attack. As Raoul said, if you're defending you're losing. I could actually imagine a complete meltdown if the moderator doesn't allow Trump to lie constantly.

                                                Yeah, saorview is 'free', you just need a basic antenna. Like an old 'rabbits ears' is fine in Dublin, but you might need an outdoor one out in the sticks. Like BennyHIFI I went down the road of getting the free UK channels with a dish. It's a bit industrial, in the sense that you occasionally have to manually retune channels, but it works fine. I got mine installed by by these lads was happy enough https://www.satellite.ie/

                                                  You should at least have waited 'till the first debate. He'll be 2/1 after Donnie wipes the floor with him.

                                                    Agreed. I think it's absolutely perfect for my needs. Plenty of oddball channels to compliment the required fare of BBC/C4/RTE/ITV, many of them the same as I was getting on cable. All the radio channels, about 10 channels for the young fella inc x2CBBC and CITV and some decent movie channels but industrial is a good way to describe the nav/menus/recording etc... but I don't care about those too much.

                                                    How do you manually re-tune Collie? Lost the travel channel there recently with some cookery shows I occasionally linger on.

                                                          I don't know enough about what makes computers whir and do things, but I was thinking of getting a super-powered desktop for data work with that Ryzen9, the RTX3080 graphics card, and then just to make sure theres no plumbing issues: 64gb ram and a one terrabyte ssd.

                                                          I've no idea what all those things would do together though. It could be the equivalent of homer going in a restaurant and ordering the most expensive meat stuffed with the second most expensive meat. So will have to research that a whole lot further. Is there something obviously flawed with that i wonder. Like maybe of the Ryzen and the RTX3080 only one could do the job and therefore it would be better just going for the best version of one, rather than both.
                                                          What's the use case?

                                                          I think I suggested renting servers on paperspace, azure or aws before instead of trying to create a powerful desktop. I still think that this is the best way to go, mostly because it scales so easily. You can decide "fuck this I need 240 cores so I can get this done quickly" and simply provision them for one day and let the hardware providers pick handle the scaling. This would also encourage you to think 'Dev pipeline', where you actually 'deploy' code to the servers and have it running. As you get further and further down this track you can setup DevOps and CI via Gitlab/Github/Jenkins. It basically mimics the actual development pipelines that you would use in industry.

Remember the debate where Trump completely and utterly destroyed Little Marco? Something about how he was drinking water? Before it Marco was fine, Marco was a contender, Marco was going places. Then one little debate - and one little moment during that debate - and you couldn't even consider Marco as a politician you could look straight in the eyes anymore. What if, somehow, Trump does that to Biden? I'm not saying its going to happen. I sure as fuck hope it doesn't happen, given we have the same bet, but it *might* happen. So what I'm thinking is I'll wait personally until the first debate on the 29th and the minute Biden gets through it unscathed I'll dump the (baby sized) money truck into Biden again. Not that Biden needs to win the debate, just that he needs to not catastrophically lose it.

I`'m sure ill add a few more over the weekend as I'm surfing tho

                                                                                              I mentioned a while ago about paying some health insurance advisors to suggest the best healthcare plan as there's a few hundred different plans and presumably there's a fair bit of hidden value. Had the meeting on Thursday and yeah that was an excellent use of money. The eventual plan is not cheap unfortunately as there's no employer subsidy (in a public sector job the unfortunate assumption is that the public sector healthcare is sufficient) - so 500 a month for the four of us (200 per adult, 50 per kid). Although maybe the wife employer might cover some of her costs. But that then covers all potential healthcare costs and can swan into the Mater Private at will and demand them to give you the liver of a poor person.

                                                                                              The main plan, for what its worth at this particular moment in time, is Laya Company Plan Plus, but and here's where the small amount of money turns out to be particularly well spent, the kids are on a different plan as it covers far more and turns out to be about 600 less a year for the two of them compared to kids on the company plan plus. The kids are on some sort of CEO plan that costs 4000 a year for adults, and 500 for kids vs Company Plan Plus which is 2400 per adult and 800 per kid.

                                                                                              Pay your experts folks, they'll save you a fortune. Thus endeth an advertisement for the v for v's of the world.

Nobody knows or cares. What we do know or care is that it was the end of a Trump opponent, so it's a risk factor. Only seeking out confirmatory news is all very comforting until it isn't.

Rubio's fall off a cliff moment was when one of the other candidates (ChristieI think?) interrupted him while he was giving a canned response to some question and pointed out to everyone how Rubio has no brain and can only repeat canned responses. Rubio then tried over and over to start his canned response from the start, while everyone pointed and laughed at him every time. He was like a robot stuck in a reboot loop. Google 'Marcobot' for a reminder.

My read on it it, once you go exceed the limits of what a decent rig can do you end up looking for cloud resources anyway so going for top-whack and price components would gain diminishing returns compared to bursting up your AWS/Azure spec on demand

I was going to go with the Surface Laptop. What's the Surface Pro like for typing with that keyboard set up? Does it take much to get used to?

I use the pen a hell of a lot for marking things up, this may not match everyone's workflow but for me its been a game changer. Would be best to go to Harvey Norman or somewhere and try keyboard out for yourself, these things can be subjective.
