Re: Doctor Who

I'm gonna hafta watch it again - watched it when I got home from the football/BBQ shenanigans of Saturday and I was utterly wankered, so I remember very little...

...except that I still hate Corden.

What's revolting about it? It's just lint... The lint is clean - it's just come from the washing machine and then the dryer...

The belly button fluff is truly revolting though... Almost as bad as collecting scabs...

Re: Do you collect anything?

Comics. And comics. And more comics. I will share a couple of weird things that I used to collect though: When I was a wee nipper and I had to open a carton of juice in the mornings before breakfast, I used to cut the corner off the carton and then put it in the pocket of my dressing gown. Eventuall...

Re: Android

I have my phone still running the background data, text fairly regularly during the day, and use it as a music player for at least an hour and I still get a full day, comfortably. Glad you worked it out, Pete! I didn't think the systems would be the same, even though they're from the same company......

Re: Comic Book Chit-chat

The only new thing that I've bought has been the new Grant Morrison 'Batman: the return of Bruce Wayne', which I'm only buying cos I love both Morrison and Batman. I did start collecting the Wasteland series, by Antony Johnston, in tpb, but that's not new. And I bought a copy of Strange Suspense Vol...

Re: Comic Book Chit-chat

I find the idea that all indie comic books look the same and all superhero art looks the same as reductive and insulting as saying all heavy metal sounds the same, all hip hip sounds the same, etc I was being facetious. I'm a massive comic geek, you know. It's just I don't have a lot of the more in...

What do I need to switch off? Help! Go to 'Settings'. Then it should be 'Accounts & sync'. Then turn off 'Background data'. That'll stop it using 3G to update things like weather or facebook or what-have-you. If you connect it with your wireless internet and leave the wi-fi thing on, does that down...

When our friend Will got an iPhone, and I got a chance to play with it round at a mate's house, the first thing I did was stream porn on it. Hilarious.

Re: Android

Downloaded 'Gameboid' last night - a Game Boy Advance emulator - and then a bunch of roms to play on it (mostly Mario games). Couldn't get the fucking thing to work cos I needed a gba_bios.bin file apparently, whatever that is. Anyway, I've now downloaded now but will have to wait til I get home to ...
