Re: What phone do you use currently?

in Milliways
Ulefone Armor 3. Tough as nails, can survive being submersed in a metre of concrete, truly huge battery capacity, can charge other devices, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, can scubadive without an aqualung, crash land on the moon, and you can use it as a phone as well. Also has heat …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

in Milliways
Lexx always seemed like it it was a bad copy of Andromeda crossed with Red Dwarf written by a Cirque de Soleil creator on acid. I almost managed to follow it after catching 10 episodes in a row once, but then missed one and I was lost again. Yeah I saw the Red Dwarf parallel; that accentuated the …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

in Milliways
"Reboot" doesn't mean "remake" I suppose. Will be interested to see how it turns out. These shows with multiple humanoid races already have plenty of minority politics so whether or not they build that in may not change it all that much. That said, if they changed the characterisation to reflect …

Re: Your least used complete vintage system

in Milliways
I have two old-hardware systems. One is at least plugged in and connected-up, but the last few years has literally been turned one three or four times a year at most, mainly to amaze myself that yes I finally got this hardware to play together and it really is the box I always wanted for those games …

Re: You fly into space once and you're an astronaut

in Milliways
Yeah I thought it was all very uplifting. The pickle millionaire's ship reminded me of my old Hamlyn Rockets and Missiles book from when I was a kid in the sixties - pretty similar craft in there so watching that felt like watching a childhood dream come true. The gondola that bezos came down was …

Re: Abit VP6 Dual p3

Nice system, makes me miss my dual P3 box. Quake smp is all i can think of too. Wasnt that the only game around that time that could take advantage of SMP? All else I can recall is the ease of swapping between different applications - part of the snappiness of a dual CPU system - but I think there …

Re: Registering devices with microsoft

in Milliways
Off topic ramble... I've started to realise I no longer use Office products, either Microsoft or OpenOffice etc. When my kids were at school I bought a famiy pack of 3 licences for one version (2007?) which I get hassles from Microsoft these days when trying to activate - have to say it's not …

Re: Registering devices with microsoft

in Milliways
It makes it super easy to transfer Windows licenses between systems and also to reactivate licenses if the hardware changes too much. If you have a Microsoft account, you don't have to pay for Windows again when your hardware changes too much... (in other words, you can transfer the license, even …

Registering devices with microsoft

in Milliways
Could somebody explain what the point of registering devices on your microsoft.com account is? I seem to have a bit of a jumble on mine. I can't see that it affects windows or office activation for example. What about if I want to install Windows 11 preview on a pc from the Insider program, does …

Re: Do you dislike the British?

in Milliways
On the royal family, for many years I thought pretty much they seem to be rich and not do much of any use, but nowadays I think this. They are a group of people who live independent from the day to day decision-making that goes on in politics. They are rich by most people's standards, but they are …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Haven't playeed anything properly for years now. I'm part way through pretty much all the Blizzard games (only ever finished WC3-ROC and I guess DIablo II except Nightmare mode) and Grim Fandango, in that I'd pick those up where I left off. Anything else I'd need to start again, even Planescape …

Re: Camera or cellphone's camera.

in Milliways
5 years old for point and shoot would be good enough and for 10 years old, frame with detachable lens? Suggestions? If you're after suggestions for cameras good in low light ad close up... there's plenty out there, depends what you want to spend. For macro photography (ie close-up to most of us, …

Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

in Milliways
I've been through this once or twice, though the last time seems to have stuck. I never went as hard at it as some in here, but I did end up with way too much gear a few times. The better stuff I sold, only to see prices go throough the room later. Some stuff I just had to chuck, like recently I got …

Re: Best way to take photos for posting ?

in Milliways
Probably they are primarily optics companies and cameras aren't necessarily their biggest earners anyway. Fuji makes more money from instax than digital. The camera companies that get involved with phones seem to be panasonic (they makeor made phones anyway, and they had the cm1 i think it was), …
