Re: The UKAR Gaming Thread

If anybody wants a free game which hasn't been put on sale yet....
https://www.totalwar.com/games/troy/

Yes, a free new 'Total War' game direct from the makers!

Only available free today, though, so you haven't got long to get a copy.

Yes, you've got to register on their website, but that's all.

And now Big Orange drops an Arab-Israeli peace deal into the equation. Well, Israel & the UAE, anyway. The same UAE who are a thousand-odd miles away from Israel, aren't in any sort of conflict with them, and oppose the same regimes as they do...... Apart from those stirred up by the various religi...

That'll be because when I checked the NATS site I think I only checked 'EGTT' instead of also checking 'EGPX' ( which covers Scotland ).....oops!! :flushed:

Re: President Trump

Question is, would the world have been a better place if the pollsters had been right? Depends which part. If Clinton had won, we ( because the UK Govt. always follows the US like lemings ) would likely either be embroiled in some new wars in regions which are nothing to do with us, or have ramped-...

And if polls were accurate, Clinton would currently be POTUS, Corbyn would be PMUK and the UK would still be a member of the EU.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Some pubs/restaurants are doing it sensibly for walk-in customers by using an individual tear-off pad page per customer/group ( same as what they already used for taking orders ) Others, however, are using an ordinary notebook where one individual/group's details follow on directly below the previou...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Three of one of the tenants staff where I work decided to have a meal at one of the recently reopened restaurants ( 'Slug' ) during their hour lunch-break last week. By the time they'd waited for a table ( no pre-booking ) filled in the forms & listened to the 'do's & don'ts' they'd already used up ...

Unless you're in Wales, in which case it seems to be seaside resorts & caravan parks where most of the recent outbreaks have been occurring ( oh, and not forgetting food processing plants, of course ) And if Wales is anything to go by, the 'track and trace' system is pretty useless due to people giv...

Which is about the time that it diverted from the books because they aren’t finished yet, and boy, it shows. To be fair, it had already deviated from the books since the very first series.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Since the pubs reopened, Wales seems to have been overrun by idiots who appear to have forgotten what's been happening the past 5 months.
No doubt other parts of the UK are the same.
There are a lot of people out there who are too stupid for words to describe.
