Re: What grinds your gears ?

Well, the forum was a far better place with me as pretty much the only active moderator. Now any thread that discusses the horrors going on in this country in the 'off topic' thread simply get locked. Used to have a bloody good discussion - but now... The FUTURE is censored. Rubbish way to run a for...

Re: Today

Thanks Seph. So, today wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be. They opted for a less invasive laser treatment that only took 15 mins on each eye. The good thing about this is I can drive after 24 hours. I wouldn't say the procedure was painless, but uncomfortable and toe curling! I do know that...

Re: Who gets the main TV at night?

The wife and kids hog the main TV pretty much all of the time. If I want to watch something (like F1) then I use the dining room with the Projector and surround sound system with the Virgin Tivo box.

Re: Formula 1 Fantasy League 2017

Monaco this weekend!

Ferrari look quick as do Redbull... Merc got it all wrong in FP1 & 2... Way off the pace!!

Button did well to be 0.03 seconds off Vandoorn having never driven the car.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Buy normal blu ray, turn down colour on the telly... LOL. That's one way of doing it. It's just in vogue at the moment - Mad Max : Fury Road also got similar treatment and a limited cinematic re-release as well. Am I the only one who thought Fury Road was massively massively over-rated? To me it wa...

Re: Are US subscriptions now being shipped from within the US? Shipping speed VERY slow. Packaging flimsy.

Darren said there is nothing he can do as this isn't his department. Subscriptions said in a PM yesterday "Unfortunately we have no updates yet..." which doesn't give me a high-degree of confidence. It needs to be pushed by the likes of Darran - it is his mag, he has made it what it is today and to...

Re: Are US subscriptions now being shipped from within the US? Shipping speed VERY slow. Packaging flimsy.

It's a bit strange that no one has replied from the Mag to this thread yet.

Can I assume that you have all contacted Darran? and it maybe worth contacting 'subscriptions' via PM on this forum (yes, that's the user name).

Does seem pretty pish poor service.

Re: console battle GRAND FINALE - SUPER NINTENDO VS XBOX 360

It's a shame it boiled down to these two... Love the 360 and skipped the SNES as I disliked the NES so much. My vote has to go for the 360. Why is it a shame. 2 of the best consoles ever. these and the NES would probably make up my top 3. If your "team" doesn't make a final, then its always going t...
