Passing Time During The Pestilence

Recommended Posts

Plenty of fitness types doing online PT sessions at the moment. Joe Wicks being probably the most famous. May be worth looking into for those missing the gym.

I'm planning to get running again to cling onto the last bit of outside activity I'm allowed to do :D

Working from home....2 keyboards. 

Poker on one screen,  work on laptop.  Just posted part of an SQL into a game on WSOP 🙂

The advanced players will be trying to fathom that as some super advanced 6max strategy

Ray Benson is hosting the Luck Reunion. Luck was a town created for the Willie Nelson film, The Red Headed Stranger, I think. This is an online concert with an excellent lineup. Unsure of the reasoning behind this concert but it's free.

Alex Horne from Taskmaster is setting tasks you can do at home which is quite a nice idea.

*EDIT - might be worth giving it a miss; apparently google charge so much to use their stuff now that they had to stop this game being free*

Google haven't changed their prices on this in over a year (and then just a few percent). They will have been relying on a free tier (like we do on VT for somethings). Heavy load means you move into charging.

Lucky that their WAF didn't detect it as a subversion attempt and ban you.....

OMG that was the best race I've watched in decades. I need a lie down to catch my breath.

:) A better watch than motor racing on an oval track, I tells yer.

I was disappointed with Snowy's lack of stamina in the middle stages of the race but he seemed to get a second wind and made quite a charge in the last lap and a half.

I was gutted Snowy didn't win to be honest.

If normal radio is getting you down, here's an old mate of mine doing his Podcast /Non-Radio show. It's about three hours long so a perfect replacement for the radio for a while

I'm only just starting to listen now so can't vouch for the latest episode but it usually goes all over the place. Definitely alternative but will take in a vast array of genres from Dub to Psyche and Post-punk to Disco with a whole load of other stuff thrown in, with a slight Liverpool bent usually.

I saw an app advertised the other day and it was called Poker Face (i think). Which is as good a name as any!

Never used it but the jist was definitely online poker where you could see everyone's face

Had a session on Pokerface tonight with a couple of mates , The web cam aspect makes it fun and you can of course chat away as you play ... cheers for the heads up

Glad to hear it works. I might follow suit. Ever since you mentioned it I've been thinking what a good idea it is

I should probably have looked at the pictures to work out what the game was.
