|The Ashes on BT Sport|

What a crock.
No way I can watch any of it without a BT Broadband subscription. Ridiculous. They are well on the way to destroying the support base, especially amongst younger people, for cricket, for short term financial gain.
At least when stuff is on Sky I can use the Now TV service and pay for the bits and pieces Im interested in as and when.

Kitchen being done. Tiler has let us down... Tiles are stone so maybe a problem for me to cut.

Offering free 1 hour training sessions with first team squad member(s) to charter standard clubs in the County, with a brief stadium tour afterwards.
My U10s are going to be buzzing.
Do ITFC do anything of that sort?
|1st half was better than I have seen from us for some time|

Not great, but decent and I think we were the better team.
After the goal, we reverted to type and were largely poor. Stopped winning the second balls and offered very little.
The attacking subs were way too late. McGoldrick had a poor game imo- though he was largely having to play as a battering ram which isnt his game. Lack of any pace was very apparent throughout the team.
Better than before
Painful lack of guile and speed
Same result again

The original Blade Runner is set in 2019. So the Tyrell Corporation have just two years to move from producing fancy crisps to replicants.

The wife has a question for the twtd intelligentsia.... I don't claim to understand it.
"I need help doing a count of customers based on a conditional formatting. I.e. how many customers are in the 'yellow' cells in a column. I've tried =CountCcolor(x:y,z) but the result comes back as zero. I ran the module on the VBA. There is Zutool but I'm not sure I can install at work.
There was a background colour but I need the conditional formatting to say where the info is coming from.
Any ideas please?

I think its about time I upgraded my rig- but haven't done anything of that sort for a good few years now and am somewhat out of touch.
I've often found that the builds suggested in PC Gamer magazine have been useful- but currently their bidget build is real bargain basement, and then the mid range one massively more expensive. Im wondering if there is some sensible middle ground... Their budget suggestions are a Pentium G4560 for £50 with a 4gb GTX 1050 for £135. Their mid range is a Ryzen 5 for £150 (fair enough perhaps) coupled with a GTX 1070 8GB for £350...
I have a Phenom 2- X4 955 processor which still is pretty decent for its age, but probably ought to go. If thats the case, then I am looking at the whole rig rather than just chucking in a new GPU.
Any thoughts / insights?

The man is an embarrassing fool. I'd accuse him of dumbing down a highly complex and emotive issue but it's not deliberate. It's just his level.
Apparently the bomber(s) are 'losers'. And he won't call them monsters because 'they'd think it was a great name'.

Ive come across an musician who's music interests me. Her album appears only to be available on itunes, which I refuse to sully my pc with.
It seems that to get it I will have to break that rule.
If I do, do I get proper access to the music and the ability to download and use it without itunes? I could then install long enough to get it and then remove it...

Does it apply to football? If not why not. If so then the impact would be enormous. Tea lady at old Trafford would need to be on 15k a week...

That was the line used by many to discredit Hillary Clinton. And here we have trumpywumpy launching 59 missiles at Russia's ally...

I know she's not quite properly English, but still. A real top end tennis player in the ladies section has been a long time coming.

I heard of it for the first time via a podcast on the way to work this morning.
Watched two episodes. So far, its magnificent. The first and only proper nearly 'hard' SF (by which I mean, realistic, scientific intelligent stuff) that I have seen on screen. Proper physics, proper ideas and beautifully shot.
Long may it continue.
