Can you "cast" it from your mobile devices to the big screen. Then it would be close to ideal.

I can in the living room as I use a Samsung note and my TV is also Samsung so it's pretty seamless. The TV in the bedroom is an LG and it's not so friendly and it's the missus that really needed it and she plots up there for most of the evening. It's fixed now anyhow but last night was a bit of a drag for me without F Is for Family and Family Guy. I like to watch those before I sleep.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

During the great plague? The things that people consider essential - tsk.

I guess that you would be greatly surprised to know that my TV's have Apple TV's attached for casting purposes.

Yep, gobsmacked.

.... The TV in the bedroom is an LG and it's not so friendly  ....

So TNG read this and told me I was talking crap as casting doesn't use the house wifi (which the LG really struggles with) and said that it would be seamless.

I told him to prove it.

He did.

So you were right dweez. Thanks.

I for one will miss Philip. Sort of like an old sofa that you've had to get rid of.

Never knew the bloke.

Having a quick Google tells me that as a young naval officer he was asked to show a 13-year-old girl around Dartmouth, and they started exchanging letters. Today he would have been jailed for that.
;D ;D

Reminds me of Elvis Presley.

Less conspicuous than concrete, that's for sure.

hope not near you smokes

Yep and this is part of the ongoing surge testing that they set up just before the big hug-in on Clapham Common.

I might suggest that the vigil for Sarah Everard has contributed the the longevity of the outbreak and the difficulty containing it.

Bet you no-one else does.

Going to Manchester tomorrow so I used a free test to make sure I'm not a risk. It does demonstrate that we ain't outta the woods by a country mile.

Thought of you yesterday as I passed Leicester. Mind you, I had plenty of time to think as there was a bad accident near Brum that held me up for about an hour.

Should've been on the tolled M6 which would have skipped it but stoopid "Waze" tried to save me monies.

M1 around Leicester is almost always shut with accidents.
