This one is so depressingly true...

Why do I feel that No7 was written by one of our very own members 

7. “All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.”

I won’t say who as that would Cause Tension 😉

I watched a couple of films over the weekend, I really enjoyed The Irishman, the cinematography was superb and what a performance from Joe Pesci. I watched The Lighthouse last night, a brooding dark film shot in black on white on film using 1.19:1 aspect ratio. Again brilliant acting, William Dafoe and Robert Patterson were superb. I enjoyed both films immensely.

Anyone here work for UKmail/DHL or deal with them often?

Ordered a package before this whole isolation thing hit. Got an email yesterday with tracking info on for DHL. This morning I got a text with a time scale on...

 

Anyway, it's now past the time scale so I went on tracking and there was a message that said "The delivery of your consignment is subject to a book in arrangement and will be delivered as soon as possible"

 

Does that mean its going to be late or that I have to book a special slot because honestly I could read it both ways?

Was hoping someone with a more technical mind than I could help out with a laptop recommendation as I'm useless at this stuff and extremely indecisive. I've broken down my priorities in the hope that I can find my perfect laptop

Priority 1 - a laptop that can run football manager 2020 and beyond at a high performance level for at least the next 4-5 years. I'd like to be able to select 8-10 countries to load all leagues on and use a huge database.

Priority 2 - size, durability and mobility - something slim and portable, sleek design and will last for at least 4-5 years.

Priority 3 - ssd size/upgradability. I'd like something with a decent sized ssd to begin with or at least the possibility of adding to it with ease. same with ram.

Priority 4 - screen quality - dont know much about this to be honest, but I'll probably be watching movies and tv semi regularly so a decent screen would be appreciated but not top priority

Priority 5 - also not a major thing but it would be a bonus if it could also handle other gaming for the next couple of years on medium settings.

Price wise I'm fairly flexible but it would take a deal of amazing proportions for me to go past £650, though ideally I'd like to get the cheapest possible that hits my first couple of priorities.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

It's a dedicated gaming laptop, most really high spec ones go for over a grand but that'll be decent enough for a good few years. 8gb RAM means you'll be able to run multiple leagues in FM and play nearly if not all current releases. The graphics card is decent and the processor is a quad core AMD which in my opinion are better than Intel processors. The hard drive space is standard but easily expandable plus you get an external drive fairly cheaply these days.

Plus it has a really cool red-LED backlit keyboard 🙂

The only downside, which isn't really an issue these days, is it doesn't come with an optical drive. Most laptops these days don't however as more and more people stream their content and download their games from platforms like Steam. If you're old school and have a physical copy of FM then you'll need to buy an external DVD-ROM drive.

Any mechanics on here. 
 

I have a BMW M135i and for some reason the boot won’t latch closed when shut/pressed. On initial inspection I can’t see any damage around the locking mechanism so I’m thinking it’s not a alignment issue. 
any help/advice Would be greatly appreciated

 cheers 👍

Today there was a boxing match between a man named Cheeseman and another man named Eggington. It's nice to see during these dark days there are still some rays of light.

This is true. In a minor upset Eggington was beaten. So you could say that Cheeseman was harder and stronger that first thought 👍

Probably late to the party for many but the Peter crouch podcast is brilliant. He’s genuinely a nice guy and very funny. Occasionally he talks candidly about football. And thinking about the conversations we had regarding leaders in a team and what would make a good captain the episode below is really interesting (to me any way)

    • Yeah? Am I a Burnley fan?  They play direct football, their long term plan seems to have been to underfund their manager and just hover about in the league and get knocked out of the cups. Even when they were briefly in Europe, they didn't plan for Europe. I'm sure everyone on this board would swap places with Burnley in a heart beat.
    • You don’t think Warnock can get us promotion? I do. And for me that’s taking the club forwards. Don’t give a crap how we do it or what brand of football we play. I bet all the Cardiff fans are outraged that they signed McCarthy the dinosaur. Getting promotion should be the main aim of both the club and the fans. We can worry about changing style or whatever you want to call it when we have £180million in the bank. Just focus on getting out of this league for now, it doesn’t matter how.  
    • Didn't you call Burnley a pointless club a week or two ago?

    • Shocking... absolutely woeful...   Zero ambition... zero inventiveness... zero future planning... Gibson needs to go... and take that dinosaur with him!
