    Charities are becoming annoying cunts.

    So my father died a couple of weeks ago, we had a McMillan nurse who come to the house who was helpful and we had fantastic support of St Johns Hospice at Home. However, less than one week after my mum recieves a letter from McMillan asking her to include them in her will. Now it might have just been co-incidence but she has not received mail from them before, so pretty sure it nothing more than cynically praying on a woman who had lost her husband 6 months short of 50 years. I have been appaulled at how some companies including charities have tried to take advantage of her. Others have been amazing and as such will be given very decent donations from our family and continued customer loyalty. I will make sure McMillan recieve a small something; as if you use a charity, benefit from it and can afford to its only fair. However, after that I do not think I be inclined to ever again. The companies in question can fuck right off though.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Dont think anyone has posted this yet, I read a series of articles a couple of months ago on Der Spiegel Online about Man City and their dealings. Since it is being discussed thought some here may find it interesting. It is pretty damming if true, lets face it they have form for financial breaches, we now have the alleged bullshitting of UEFA in addition. Most of the info used was from Football Leaks.

    Everton (H) 2/12/18 Premier League

    I sit in main stand overlooking the away end - some stuff was thrown on to the pitch when Richarlison (I think it was) tryed to start a fight with Gomez in that corner not as bad as aftrr the goal and most just hit their own fans and didnt make it on the pitch. There was also a mobile phone amongst the objects that made it on to the picth after yhe goal, and earlier a few people get kicked out by the cops. Most of it just hit their own fans and didnt make it on to the pitch at that point. As for the flares its a bit of a blear I thought the one thrown at our lot was after along with loads more stuff chucked on inc the flare and phone on to the pitch. Edit: they have to have been the most obnoxious away fans so far this season - again. Edit again: I could be wrong btw it was mayhem and I was concentrated on what was going on at the other end so much.

    Everton (H) 2/12/18 Premier League

    there were 2 blue flares one on the pitch with all the other crap they threw on there and one right in with our supported in the lower Anfield Road End. Dunno if any of that has been mentioned at all.

    Everton (H) 2/12/18 Premier League

    Don't usually post but delighted with that went crazy at the end, especially after the "you haven't killed an Italian" and "always the victim" shite they pulled - again. We sit right near the away end so was very audible and when they began chucking stuff on to the pitch near the end someone threw a mobile phone; pathetic i know but that cracked me up. I mean why not throw your wallet and drivers licence too. Fortunately no-one was in the way of it. Anyway stay classy Everton!

    Slow Laptop ideas

    I know you said you have run Ccleaner did you check start-up? Ccleaner to do startup tools-> startup. Disable junk that is unceassary, if your unsure quick google will sort. Apologies if you have already done this but many overlook it. GL

    HTC Vive Pro

    If you like fps try Pavlov and Onward. If you do think about grabbing a periferal that locks your controllers in place making shoiting easier. My other half actually was the 1st to make one of these on redddit years ago. Flying games are great there is a real sense of awe there especially if you have a stick or hotas. The game is repetative and a little boring but the scale in Elite Dangerous is amazing. Sometimes they have it on sale for a fiver so if you see it on then cheap worth a copy. Been using VR since Rift DK1 and Elite Dangerous Alpha - too bad I still get motion sickness so cant use much. My partner though bearly uses anything but VR now though.

    Can anyone please help me out and recomend a service for me? Pref one that doesn't need a proxy for sports events would be ideal. I want to set this up for my mother so she can see the true horror of such a service. Once educated after a couple of years she will know what to look for and how to avoid these imoral practices. Thanks

    I used to use a jds labs c5d, as amp/dac with phone was nice little unit. Dont use so much now due to the fiio x7 and keeping my phone charged. If it was not season ticket time, I would love a chord mojo - amazing bit of kit.

    Yeah EU volume limits are dumb audio players, due to headphone impedance. I am unclear of the rules but manufacturers sell legally in the eu without it, I mean you can buy amps which completely negates any rules. Companies like sony though are ultra strict though and apply it to their players also. If you want a cheap player with no sound restrictions check out Fiio, they also make cheap amps.

    True to an extent but Qualcom AptX has been a real game changer. It still is a form of compression but produces much better results - can support up to 24 bit, cd quality is typically 16 bit. Ofc you have to have the right files to show it off. It is pretty good and of you have an interest in this sort of stuff give it a demo with a nice flac in a department store. (Maybe changed but last I heared apple didnt support, this so an iphone may not be an ideal.) Used a few things to test them out inc fiio x7 dap and they generally preform well.

    Whilst I dont know the model Shure make some fantastic products, have an excellent reputation and great support. They are very well reguarded by many audio enthusiasts. Besides its from amazon so you will have no problem sending them back if you dont like them. I see they are listed as studio, so they should sound balanced across the frequencys, with nothing overly predominant. I use these as my daily iem:

    Yep beats generally have a terrible reputation within the headphone community, plastic, bloated / too much bass and made out of cheap materials. Some people like them but personally I dont understand why. Bose fair better due to the QC35/25 because their NC is excellent. I really like my M2 for the same reasons, they just feel so premium. The funny thing is they actually feel more premium then my HD800, due to the leather and stainless steel. Nuts when a set of new hd800 would cost about £1k new. I bet its the case with the B&O too. One I bough my 1st set of real quality headphones it set me off just not being satisfied. I went from a crappy steel series headset and samsung ear buds to a set of HD800 and Shure SE846 with in a year. I hear things in tracks I didnt have a clue where there previously. If this is your 1st set of premium headpones and you dont have much high resolution music, grab yourself a tidal account for a free months trial, select hifi quality and see if you hear anything new. Its like rediscovering your music collection.
