    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Still on Chapter 3 - doing every side quest, and every challenge possible before moving on. Loving every second of this.

    Movies of the Year 2018

    Nice to see some recommendations, going to work my way through a few of those. Seems that all Hollywood is interested in these days is bloody Marvel rubbish.

    Albums of the Year 2018

    Just brought that up on Spotify. Genuinely one of the worst things I've ever heard. The musical equivalent of trying to watch more than 10 minutes of The Greatest Showman. It's a no from me.

    Paris, 50 years on

    Is that because the situations are decidedly different?

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'm still on Chapter 3. I'm enjoying myself far too much just doing side quests and the like to do the main quest line too quickly. I'm just scared of it being over too quickly, so am going round trying to get all the legendary animals potted. And shooting all those hillbillies in the north of the map.

    Watches

    It was from an AD in Manchester. I've used them for years now so tend to do quite well for the hard to get stuff. In the last couple of years I've got the ceramic bezel Daytona, a Hulk (green sub), a BLNR, this year's Baselworld Root Beer and now the SABR.

    New York, New York

    Completely agree, it's an amazing place. I think I just about prefer it to London, as London loses points for being too familiar. New York seems a lot more compact as well, although two things about it are really shite: The yellow cabs - shit drivers, filthy horrible cars, and most of them are too small. Not a patch on black cabs in London The tipping culture - hate it, just charge a bit more and stop me having to think about every single transaction.

    Watches

    Love the Patek and the Sub, you did very well to get those two. The Aquanaut is a brilliant watch, wouldn't mind one myself. Picked up a new very limited edition Sub today, the 116659 SABR. It's a bit ridiculous, and I have no intention of ever wearing it, but it's already going for about 50% more than what I paid for it today, so in common with all of the hard-to-get Rolexes, a brilliant investment. And they didn't kidnap the guarantee card on this one, so I could flog it straight away no problem. Also got given a load of extra freebies, like a golf umbrella, a watch travel case and a leather wallet.

    Watches

    It's not the box they're keeping, it's just the credit card sized guarantee card. There's no way they'd get away with not handing over the box, as that's what keeps the watch in good nick. I've had the card retained for one of mine. It's no big deal, because as rare as it is, it just means that I have to keep it for 12 months before selling it, or if I did want to flog it, I'd just show the buyer the written letter from the AD saying that they had the guarantee card. I'd then give them the card when I get it back.

    Mesh wifi

    We've just had our broadband upgraded from crap BT to superfast rural fibre broadband from Gigaclear, so I decided to install a mesh system as we've got an old farmhouse with thick walls and the signal was struggling from the main router into the house. Anyway, I've tried a few different mesh systems, and the one I strongly recommend is Deco by TP-Link. Their M5 system works brilliantly out of the box, and the phone app to control it is great too. The units aren't too bulky unlike some, and adding a new one really is simplicity itself. We've got four spread around the house, and the wifi signal quality is great everywhere, and it never seems to drop. From a 200MB download speed at the point of the router, I get 100+ in the rooms upstairs where the satellites are. Not sure how accurate that is, but everything seems really quick. I tried about three others as my neighbour is in IT and had a few for testing for his home office, and this is by far the best in my opinion. The other were the Google one, Netgear Orbi and one other which I can't recall. None of those were as faff free as the Deco in my opinion. Hope that helps.
