    Musings, ramblings, stabbings, rain. Get things off your chest, it’s good for you.

    This week I fixed my own boiler, come on! I also replaced and resealed parts on both our toilets, yeaaah get in!! Feeling like a real man I decided to tackle our hand-me-down broken dishwasher today but after being drenched in manky water and getting nowhere I’m declaring it proper fucked, so it’s time for a new one, boooo. It’s almost conspiratorially weird that so many of our water based appliances have broken at once, I suspect unscrupulous ninja sabotage plumbers desperate for work. Some of our biscuits are missing too, bloody ninja plumbers.

    So, what’s up with you?

    I just moved house the other day and am almost sorted now. Just need to tidy up the spare room.

    I have some lovely work ahead of me as the recent storms completely wrecked my garden fence and deposited half of my shed in the adjoining river. Oh well, it’ll get me outdoors for a spell :/

    Lots of house related shenanigans, congrats on the move AIR!

    Did anyone watch the F1 this weekend? Just finished watching the highlights, the word ‘unremarkable’ springs to mind.

    Yep, I watched the F1 this morning, thoroughly enjoyed it, even the sound of the turbos has won me over!

    The pace of the Mercedes is quite worrying, it looks almost as if they’ll take RB’s role of disappearing into the distance after turn 1, but I was pleastantly surprised by the pace of the McLarens so I think we could be in for some quite good racing (along with the Williams’ and Force Indias)

    Lot’s of controversy surrounding Ricciardo’s fuel consumption rates, but I think considering the FIA warned Red Bull during the race to reduce their consumption, which they then ignored, they can’t really appeal even if the FIA fuel sensor was faulty as it was earlier over the weekend. Where do you sit on the issue?

    Got to admit you’ve breathed a lot of interest into it Gazza! I watched the BBC highlights subtitled on my phone so I must’ve missed more than I thought, I’m tempted to stick it on again to get the commentary. I’ve heard plenty of the noise during testing and practices and I’m not sold on that, they’re just not screamy enough anymore and it seems like another potential nail in the coffin. Bernie’s getting on and into more trouble as the years go by, I’m worried about health and safety dominating after he’s gone :(

    Well me life is currently been dominated by Rocco (exhibit A):

    whose’s teeth are coming through. It appears 3 hours sleep is not sufficient for work, therefore I had to go to sleep early last night, thus losing valuable gaming time.

    Today my main events have been hoping David Moyes leaves Man U, arguing with my mother who fails to visit he grandchildren, and drinking coffee.

    Don’t be fooled by the smile either, between midnight and 6am he’s the Devil!!

    Very cute mate, albeit with a “You thought you going to play video games did you, we’ll see” look in his eye. Looks like you’ve got the teething to go through yet as well….oh dear still, there’s always the PS5.

    Yes mate, that’s what’s been causing my tiredness – although you can’t see them his front 2 bottom teeth have broken the gum and are causing him some pain, mostly in the night. I’ve been getting up 3-5 times a night some nights, to comfort him. It’s not fun for either of us so can’t wait until they’ve all come through!!

    He’s a cute little chap! Sounds like teething is where the nightmare begins with having kids… can’t wait!!

    So ashw92 just said in another thread that the TSA on Twitter is where a lot of the action happens. I don’t use Twitter, I got an account a few months ago but never really got my head around how to enjoy it. I’m following Stephen Fry, I can’t understand what he’s on about so he isn’t as exciting as I’d’ve thought, Chris Hadfield was fairly awesome while he was up in space but now he’s back I’m less interested, I’ve tried following lots of bands to get news on gig dates but promotional banter bloated my feed out and my friends either don’t use it or just tweet about work and pooh.

    Can anyone help me to enjoy it, or should I just leave my account abandoned.

    I use it mate, mostly for gaming. I use facebook to keep in touch with friends, but use Twitter to organise gaming sessions and follow publishers and Sony to keep up to speed with gaming news etc. Works quite well! ;)

    I mostly use twitter for gaming related things. I follow a large chunk of the TSA guys, staff and some community guys, and chat with them often. It’s a different environment and it’s far better when you’re chatting with people rather than just following the inane chatter of celebs or brands.

    Twitter operates differently in that you don’t necessarily post for a reply like you would in here. You can just spout whatever you wish and if it generates conversation that’s fun to engage in then great. It’s hard to explain what it is but I find it really enjoyable. It might just be a case of picking the right people to follow then it will sort itself out. That did it for me.

    Thanks guys! The app never worked on my old phone but might try it now, along with following TSA users. Do you guys have any non-games tips for people to follow?
