    I'd still not watch it. I find any motion on-screen too distracting from whatever I'm actually trying to follow.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Forgotten who said their mrs watched the doctor blake mysteries....last and final series is about to begin.
    Best line ive heard in ages......
    "So youre afraid of getting a haircut?"
    " no, im afraid of hairdresses.......all that unsolicited touching"

    And if anyone is interested in a series called. "Glitch". Were up to the second series. Its a must to watch the first to undeestand the second. But it is riveting television. I began watching it because the stage setting is not unlike my geographical area which made it scarier to me.

    Re: The observation and asides thread

    I'm a fan of old Radio programmes. I'm currently listening to my collection of King Street Junior - a radio drama / sitcom dating from the 70s, set in an urban Junior school, following the lives of the teachers & their daily ordeals. While these are playing I can quite happily listen to these while I get on with other tasks - at the moment programming, putting together audio files & burning them to CD as Training CDs for the choir's Xmas programme.

    It's a real shame that the age of Radio programmes has long since gone. I remember the days of the family sitting around the wireless to listen to the sitcoms, panel show, quizzes, dramas, etc. They were always high quality - far more than you get on TV these days.

    I love the audio books they read early in the mornings on ABC radio. Last book i heard was. 'Spies like us' would never have picked that book up but it was pretty good.

    I also have a whole collection of Audio Books on my 'E' Drive ( my 'E' Drive being the Har Drive I use for long term storage - mainly of entertainment media - i.e. Films, TV, Radio & Audio Books. - although It really does need a bit of a clearout. It's a 1TB drive & it's getting close to being full.

    Re: The observation and asides thread

    Im afraid im in a bit of a time warp fourpart and having to relearn all those computer skills and knowledge from years ago. I bought a stereo recently (to replace one ive had for 20 years.) Id say the device does everything but im not sure how im going to play cassette tapes. My boys are impressed by it though. (I had to go out and buy a USB stick to tape my cds so i can play music in others cars.)
    So needless to say i dont know what a 1TB even means. Lol

    Put quite simply, if you remember the old ZX81 from the late 1970s, that had 1kb of memory available. When I had my PC built, a TB drive was pretty much top of the range. A TB (Terabyte) being about 1073741824kb (ZX81s). Even the most basic mobile phones these days have far more memory available than my first PC. You even see little kids in buggies playing with 'toy' tablets, but although they may be 'toys' they are still far more advanced technologically than that first PC was.

    Yeah, 1 TB used to seem ridiculously large to me. I thought I'd never fill one up in my whole life. Now I have a 4TB at work and two 3 TB drives at home...all filled up. I am lusting after an 8 TB drive I saw in the ads the other day.

    It was pretty cool, though, to reduce my entire small-bedroom-sized DVD collection to a unit that fits in the palm of my hand. I can browse them by folder and play them through my blu-ray player!

    I highly recommend this converter. It'll handle any kind of DVD and you can even upgrade to a blu-ray version. DVD files are around 1.5 GB for a medium quality burn and 2.5 GB so you put hundreds on a 2 TB drive. (BTW... It is legal to own one backup copy of a DVD you own, but don't start pirating and selling them!)

    I use Format Factory for all my conversions. A brilliant piece of Freeware. It converts pretty much anything to anything.
