Space (Stokie, you might be able to answer this one)
at 19:00 18 Feb 2020

I'm fascinated about space but where can you keep up to date about the latest findings? Brian Cox's BBC series about the planets was great, and there's loads of good books about it, but these soon become old hat. I know Nasa has Nasa TV, but is there anything else?

Also, can people recommend the latest good books about space?

Can't see a link. Would love to see Lambert to see if he's as irate as he sounds!

Herbi, CHealy, Bloots, Chickers, HaynesToe, & many others - I owe you an apology
at 21:54 11 Feb 2020

I was wrong.

I guess hope ruled my head, but tonight's performance and result, has made me wobble. More than wobble. Maybe I just wanted Lambert to be the right man after so many false dawns. But now I'm wondering if this was another one.

That was carp. We are carp. Yes we are underfunded and I stand by that. But Lambert should be getting more out of this team against the likes of Wimbledon.

This, now, isn't good enough. I accept that. I was wrong.

Problem is, what do we do? Sack the manager? Lose the owner? Will any of these things actually turn us around? Football has died and us, or what used to be us, with it.

Saw Parasite today
at 20:31 11 Feb 2020

It really is worthy of the Oscars (and Baftas). I won't say too much, as myself and the missus went into it knowing nothing about it (apart from the aforementioned awards, it's Korean and subtitled) and I think that would be a really good way to watch it, not knowing what to expect.

And it was very unexpected. In my head it was going to be a Korean version of a Ken Loach film. It was nothing like that.

I'll just say it's very clever, very different, and also works on several levels.

I didn't realise the writer and director was also the writer and director of Snowpiercer, another brilliant film which works on several levels. I'm going to have to find out what else Bong Joon Ho has done because he's an amazing storyteller.

The awards are fully deserved.

Mattress recommendations anyone?
at 18:41 4 Feb 2020

Could anyone recommend a mattress brand? I'm moving in with my girlfriend but we need a new mattress and haven't got a clue about them. We've got a budget of around £600. Any you'd recommend (or recommend steer clear of?)

Estate agent referencing problem - anyone got an idea how I can get round this?
at 10:33 21 Jan 2020

I'm moving in with the GF - we've found a great flat and have started the referencing. My current estate agents/landlord are happy for me to swap someone for me on my current contract. The only issue is they have a policy of not giving a reference to the new estate agents/landlord until I find my replacement and they've gone through referencing themselves. But *I* can't get through *my* referencing without that reference.

So I'm kind of in catch-22. Getting a replacement and getting them through referencing is going to take a while - and the new landlord is getting nervous. Really worried we're going to lose our dream home and I'm not sure of a way around it.

Had a quick flick through the board and surprised to not see anyone reporting
at 11:58 19 Jan 2020

on Lambert (and the other 2) being on the train with ITFC fans back to Liverpool. He then went to Preston. Guess they were off to Glasgow?

My mate and his boy got a photo with Lambo... as did loads of other fans. Lovely to see. He had time for everyone.

Myself and another mate were thinking we're too old for asking for a photo, especially as we didn't have kids as an excuse, but my GF persuaded us to go and do it... and as we approached him (at Preston) he went in the gents. We actually waited for him outside the gents! Didn't have time to wait any longer as we were catching a train to Clitheroe (maybe he was having a number 2, who knows).

Anyway, strange to see the management team among the fans on a tube train. I imagine it might've been a bit of an awkward journey if we'd lost.

Smart phone battery replacement for not-so-smart phones
at 15:51 7 Jan 2020

where you can't replace the battery yourself... anyone got any tips? I asked at iSmash but the guy said it would take 3 weeks to order the battery. Has anyone sent their phone away or been into a shop to get their battery replaced and can recommend? I have a Huawei, so less popular than your iPhones etc, which might be an issue.

from political posting.

I clearly have different views to the majority in this country. But such a crushing defeat is more than that. I'm clearly totally out of touch.

Tonight feels like one of those games where you were looking forward to a Town match all week, a big one perhaps, and then you're 2-0 down in the first 5 minutes.

Glassers, you always seem to tell us the economy's improving under the Tories
at 00:30 11 Dec 2019

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the economy saw zero growth month-on-month in October, following two months of declining gross domestic product (GDP). This marks the first time the economy has failed to grow for three months in a row since early 2009 amid the recession following the global financial crisis.

You should do. And then you should get very worried indeed.
