Made it 2 in 2 for picks ups at this and last weeks car boot.

Philips 1080p monitor on the left was £32 new in box. BenQ on the right was £10 second hand. They're both nice. I'm not used to dual monitors so I'm still trying to find a set up that's comfortable

The last thing I bought was a 60" by 20" sheet of upholstery foam.

I use small pieces of it as pressure relief in my wheelchair as its difficult to get an "off the shelf" solution to my seating needs - I do use actual medical grade seating, the foam is just extra support which I can position wherever needed on a day to day basis.

I also use bits to position my arms and hands whilst gaming.

My friend's off to see them in London tonight. Kind of jealous, but I can't imagine it being as good as the launch show for Every Open Eye.

Just downloading it too, so I'm expecting good things. From what I was reading, there's a couple of self-produced tracks on there that are much more "Chvrches", so it might still be a decent album.

EDIT: First track is already better than the previous three singles. I don't get why bands do this :slol:

:lol: :toot:

I used to get royal china a lot more often than i do now, this and the wedding mug were the first items i'd bought for a couple of years.

My collection of official palace china is pretty substantial, and compared with some of my pieces, the £25 mugs are actually some of the cheaper items.

People on ONM used to foam at the mouth over my royal purchases, though in their case it was always a little confusing when you consider that some were spending up to £50 a time on creepy looking anime figurines of scantily clad underage girls.

What's the end game for all the royal merch Vermi?
Are you hoarding it all to sell to some mad man in 30-40 years time for a huge lump sum?
Or is it just to show off on your shelves?

I find it odd in either scenario, but I play with expensive toy guns in my spare evenings so I don't like to judge :lol:

These are actually great.

We got some from that small IKEA wannabe TIGER in Guildford for my son to practice using his imagination and they worked a treat.
Ours came in a yahtzee style cup and, yeah, you roll them out and make up a story.

They aren't 1000 paragraph epics, usually only lasting 60 seconds, but I've definitely noticed a difference in Finn's use of his imagination and humour. :)

There is no end game, i have no intention to sell any of it, and i only have enough space to display 2 at any one time.

I guess it's like with my coins, there's no plan, i just have a tendency to collect stuff.

I don't own a mega drive for a start so this is a nice gimmick to have.

Fair enough. I guess you wouldn't have much of a frame of reference, but how does it run?

It’s meant to be very good but because I was testing on the the PAL exclusive 50hz-locked sonic collection (only game I had on me) it ran like gooseberry fool.

Not a bad price. Is that a series 1? I've been thinking about getting an Apple Watch for ages but keep changing my mind and got confused by the different models and Apples structure of the releases.

Original model Series 1
Series 2 that had a better chip, battery, screen, added GPS
Series 3 that has all of the above plus cellular calling
Series 2 was discontinued because the difference between that and the Series 3 wasn't that big
Original Series 1 model was discontinued and replaced with one that had the faster chip from the Series 2 but still called the Series 1
