  1. I have no idea what this is, tell me more. I do have WoW download but have yet to play it.
  2. Happy birthday @burnfitbillyboy , hope you're well dude!
  3. Such reckless behaviour
  4. I can only echo what Lee has said, everyone was on top form last night. It was honestly an absolute pleasure to get some games in with everyone, I was crying with laughter the entire night. It’s been a long couple of weeks and we might have a few more of them before this is all over. The one thing we can do is support each other with fun and laughter. GGFG
  5. There's also two other games for free on the shitty cunting Epic Store
  6. Sweet, i think you should be good. To be honest i haven't experienced much throttling yet, although i'm not using much bandwidth. Really looking forward to gta!
  7. You think you'll be able to get GTAV installed?
  8. Fuck me that's awful, an entire stadium! Just for a game of bloody football.
  9. Yeah you're right James, it does affect people differently. I don't get motion sickness but sometimes it gives me a banging headache after, this could be that the VR kit i'm using isn't calibrated to my eyes. This should also help people with motion sickness as well. I've still only heard good things about this game.
  10. As many of us are currently working from home, i thought it would be benifical to go through some suggestions that might make your life a bit easier, more comfortable and better for your health in general. 1. Get dressed For some people, the prospect of staying in their pyjamas all day is the most tantalising aspect of working from home. But washing and getting dressed will not only improve your state of mind, it will psychologically prepare you to start work. Whether you need to change into business attire depends on the type of person you are and the nature of the job you have. Some people find that dressing formally is helpful, and also useful if they need to dial into a video call. But for many others, the point of getting dressed is being forced to shower and change out of clothes they associate with sleep and rest, even if that means just changing into a T-shirt and jeans. Wearing respectable clothes also increases motivation to leave the house. Likewise, changing out of work clothes when you clock off for the day helps your brain to understand that the working day is over. 2. Establish boundaries If you're employed by a company, you'll probably have set hours of work, and it's important to stick to these when you're working from home. Be ready to start your day at the same time as you would normally arrive in your office or workplace, and finish your day at the same time. Em Sheldon, a blogger and freelance writer, says she sticks to a routine while working from home. She advises "going to bed at a reasonable hour so that you get enough sleep and then wake up at your usual time. "I also find things like booking in a workout or getting my gym kit ready means I have to get up and go," she says. "Once you do something over and over, it becomes a habit, so the first week may be challenging but eventually it becomes part of your routine." At the end of a working day, it's best to switch off your computer and tidy away papers and other items. Space allowing, set aside a specific, separate area in your home where you can set yourself up - ideally with a properly adjusted desk and chair, similar to your workplace. The NHS advice is that you should adjust your chair so you can use the keyboard with your wrists and forearms straight and level with the floor. If there are other people in the house, finding a space where you're not likely to be disturbed is essential, as Prof Robert Kelly found out the hard way in 2017. He was being interviewed live by BBC News when his two children burst into the room, creating a now infamous video, which has been viewed more than 30 million times. It's also important to not "overcompensate" because you're anxious about working from home, says Ross Robinson, who manages a team of freelancers at his Ignata Consulting firm. "Many people tend to over communicate when working from home - either wanting to 'be seen', or overcompensating to ensure people know what they are up to. That's fine - but don't go over the top. You know if you're on task and being productive - keep yourself in check." 3. Get out and about (if you're not self-isolating) Working from home shouldn't mean you stay cooped up indoors all day. While you might not miss your daily commute, it does guarantee that you leave the house at least once during the day. So get your shoes on, get outside and enjoy that fresh air. A different perspective will also help undo mental blocks and give you a fresh pair of eyes for any tasks you're struggling with. Matthew Knight, founder of Leapers, a group that supports self-employed people and freelancers, says getting outside first thing helps him feel like it's time to work. "There's a mental angle for each individual that makes you feel like you're working," he says. "I will leave the house and walk around the block and feel like right now I am at work. Find ways of putting in those boundaries otherwise it becomes difficult to switch off." If you can't go outside, you could even bring the atmosphere of the office to you. "I like bustle and being around people, so I use sound to help make a bit of an atmosphere," says Gillian Roche-Saunders, whose entire regulatory consultancy firm Adempi Associates work remotely. She uses an app that plays background sounds such as a train moving along tracks, or the chatter of a coffee shop. 4. Pick up the phone If you're working from home, the chances are you'll be alone, so you won't get distracted by colleagues' conversations and other office noise. When you're at work, you're more likely to engage with colleagues but when you're working from home, you could spend the whole day without speaking to anyone which can be isolating. Make some time to pick up the phone and have a real conversation, rather than relying on email and instant messaging. "More and more people hide behind email rather than pick up the phone and talk to colleagues and contacts," says Hugo Mortimer-Harvey, who's worked remotely from Spain as a freelance PR consultant since 2018. "When you spend the day working on your own, actually calling people and having a conversation can be much more stimulating and indeed productive than a chain of emails." Jack Evans is lead business psychologist at workplace wellness consultancy Robertson Cooper, which is planning to have all its staff temporarily work from home. Their plan is to speak to each other for 30 minutes every day via video conferencing. "At about lunchtime we will just chat over video message about nothing in particular. It's to make sure people don't just turn into work monkeys. We will maintain conversation about work but it's also about not losing that social connection, which is much easier to get in person." 5. Take regular breaks It's good to have a routine when you're working from home, but work shouldn't become monotonous. And you shouldn't stay glued to your screen all day. It's important to take regular screen breaks and get up from your desk and move around just as you would in an office. Research has also found that short breaks throughout the day are more beneficial than less frequent, longer breaks. Many home workers recommend the Pomodoro Technique, a method of time management which breaks your working day into 25 minute chunks. Each chunk is followed by a five minute break. Ellie Wilson is co-founder of virtual assistant service, Virtalent, and has a team of more than 50 remote workers. "It's important to stand up, stretch, move around and even go for a short walk to take a break from your work and your screen," she says. "Being cooped up without stopping for a break can mean your productivity levels drop, you become more tired and less motivated to complete what you're working on." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51868894 6.

  11. Advice for everyone - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons: shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home Important These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household. There is separate advice about: staying at home if you're at high risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus staying at home if you or someone you live with has symptoms of coronavirus How to stop infection spreading There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with coronavirus.
