I've muted the folk from NGamer/GNamer who I think might spoil it. I had big parts of Super Mario 3D World, Breath of the Wild and other games spoiled for me by forumites who should really know better, and that's just not cricket. I don't know what's wrong with some of the folk who play games - you wouldn't do that with films and TV series, why it's all right with computer games? It's so self-indulgent.

It isn't cricket, is it? Just rude and self-centred. And you're totally right when you say people would go nuts if it were a TV show. Grr. DAMN YOU!

I've deleted twitter, facebook and instagram from my phone and changed my laptop's bookmarks so it takes me straight to my messages/ notifications and skips the feeds. As for the forum, there are threads I won't be going near.

@Cappa I hope that wasn't me, and apologise profusely if it was. Sad

It's the sharing without adding anything that's getting to me, there seems to be so much just showing a thing in the game. I'm pretty annoyed that the video capture has arrived just before this, wish there had been a bit of a cooldown period before sharing was enabled.

Fortunately, my ten or so videogamey people I follow all seem pretty sensible. I've not been spoiled in any major way yet, for which I am very grateful.

Unless I have and don't know it yet... Afraid

Following that, I had to unfollow Kate Gray, and Matthew Castle retweeted a minor spoiler.  Matthew Chuffing Castle!  Of all the people who should know better... Matthew Castle


Time for some joykilling: most fireworks.  Maybe I was spoiled, I went to uni. balls that had them set to music.  But since then I've not seen, or heard, anything that convinces me that firework shows are all that.  You want loud thumps and bright lights, go to a club.  

It's not the officially set-up displays that !&$% me off, though - they're fine for those who enjoy them, so long as they don't go on too late (and frankly in this season there's no need for any display to go on beyond nine, especially when tomorrow's a work day).  It's the people setting them off in their back gardens.  Both because that's going to ruin my sleep, and because I'm slightly afraid you'll get some twit who won't follow safety instructions and will manage to start a fire.

My dislike of fireworks stems from them putting the fear of God into the cats. Well, Beatrice cat is mostly fine with them... but they terrify Gus cat. Aww!

I don't mind fireworks . . . but I'd much rather go to a club. Balla's logic is sound.

Clubs are bad, but they are at least enclosed. And I don't live near one.

While I share Gus cat's feelings in this situation, Zero, it does seem like he's frightened by a few things! Is he a skittish chappy? Does Beatrice still bully him?

Gus cat is generally a bit of a scaredy cat Shocked but he is the bully in the Gus cat/Beatrice cat interaction. She will sometimes get her self-defence in first, let's say, but more often he's to be found teasing her. It's quite creepy, actually - he'll back her into a corner, where she'll shrink up and hiss at him, and he'll just sit there, staring at her, unmoving. Afraid

I do think fireworks are a bit boring. I'm spoiled in that the local firework display is visible from my parent's house's upstairs windows. But after the combinations of big/small - red/gold/yellow/green/white - I don't know where you go with this. If I was reviewing "Firework Displays", it's get a 4/10.

A hundred bucks a month gets you this happening sporadically in the evening.  Worth?




So much for the governments vaunted "national broadband network".  I had more consistent speeds on the old network before they started ripping up the copper network to put in fibre to the node while leaving copper to the home.  Meh   Sure there were occasional issues that would see this happen.  Once every three to four months.  So much worse than every few days amirite?

I also hope I didn't accidentally spoil something for you! I mean, all I've posted about Odyssey was a screenshot of Mario having a stare-down with a dog, which I think you liked on Twitter anyway, so hopefully all is good there.

That is brutal. I've never had a major problem with our FTTC connection up here - a damn sight faster than the ADSL copper shite we had before, at least.
