Anyone here use the now TV stick? I got one today and have to say its either faulty or the biggest pos I've had the displeasure of dealing with, firstly it wouldn't connect to my WiFi so I had to Google the error code it gave then enter the platform secret screen and disable network pings, then when it did connect it downloaded an update that took the best part of an hour, and then once I'd logged into my account the stick froze and refused to show anything apart from a message saying there was a problem and a close button that didn't work neither did the power button or anything else. I've a 4 year old Chinese android box that works better than this crap. /Rant.

Probably overheated or something and can't handle all the process work in the USB stick form? Not sure how Amazon fire stick handles the processing worth myself but I know back when I was using a wireless usb stick it cut out from overheating issues.
Probably better off using that chinese android box and download the now tv app or something and use that instead?

Anyone read this article?:

As much as I am all for forgiveness, giving people chances for stupid mistakes and by no mean racist but she does not deserve to come back to the UK just to take benefit of the UK health service.
She chose to go there and has no remorse and shame for being part of the IS group.
No doubt she be let back in though.

Yea you could be right about overheating on the platform screen it did say the cpu was 85c though not having any form of cooling perhaps maybe a tiny heat sink /plate I thought that might be normal for these :confused:

And yea i agree with you on the link, I don't think anyone who ran off to support isis should ever step for on these shores again, definitely a likely danger to the public if not now then in the future, beds made, should be lay in.

What colour do I spray my Brabus Monoblocks? Alloys are being refurbed and the original Mercedes Silver is boring. Car is electric blue.

Don't say black or silver. Booooooooring. Partner says white will look like a chav's car.

Oh I agree with that statement lol, next car will most likely be AWD for me and an auto maybe.
I will say that Rover 220 Turbo Coupe was an amazing car, it had a little more power than the Cupra and if I'm honest, it was probably faster as well.. Torque steer wasn't such an issue with it, it just gripped and went but the Mk5 GTI I had previously to the Cupra R, has the same faults as the Cupra, you just can't get the power down when it's slightly damp at all.
For AWD, the Impreza I had was a beast, miss it..

But since as the Cupra is having issues at the moment as in, it's not starting, I'm driving the girl friends car, a Zest 2 1.2 and oh dear lord it's killing me inside...... :laugh: If I don't laugh, I'm going to cry... But then again, I think I might cry anyways :cry::cry::cry::banghead::banghead:

Blue on blue.
Well i'm getting bit stressed out with my silly Asus laptop, it won't power off completely, restart works then it takes like a minute before it respond and hibernation doesn't work correctly either.
Somewhere internally has messed up the middle cycle of the process and I don't understand how when I barely use the laptop, the bios is up to date, can't downgrade unless somebody knows how.
Not sure if I should try ubuntu or something and see if it do the same thing or not?

In other news the home office wants to strip that IS girl of her british citizenship, I feel bad for that lawyer that has to deal with this matter.

Very strong poker face for anyone that has to deal with flat-out criminals and other nasty people, I just can't do it myself lol.
That is true she could apply for dutch citizenship...whether the dutch would take her though lol.

I really fancy a new case and PSU but funds are tight at the minute, I have some stuff lying around I don't use any more that I could eBay, namely a Gamecube console with some saught after games (Mario sunshine party, Mario Kart double dash, a couple of resident evils) and a couple of controllers, I'm sure the bundle would raise the funds I need on eBay though I'm kinda in 2 minds whether or not to part with this as it could potentially be worth a lot more money in a few more years time as they are fetching decent money as it is for saught after games and bundles... advices? :confused:

Never sell something to pay for something else if you can help it. I think the most fitting phrase is, "Don't rob Peter, to pay Paul"

I've a few Gamecube consoles, some boxed others not, they are here till I'm dead basically lol Kept for my daughter and other baby (when it arrives!!)

Any old game consoles and games are all collectors and should not be sold unless you're in dire need of cash to survive, I would not recommend selling them for new case and PSU.
I'm now looking at booking car in for a clutch&flywheel change sometime in march..oh the joy, I hate replacing these things as I had bad luck with my 208 GTI lol.

Hnnnnng buckled alloy was more painful than anticipated. £240 for full straighten, refurb, repaint, and had to replace the tyre on it as the deflation over time had shredded the tyre wall on the inside. Ended up getting both tyres done for posterity.

No new alloys for me...

Probably would have been cheaper if you didn't need replace the tyres.

I'm currently on Goodyear Eagle F1s, roughly £95 per corner with fitting but I had a colleague fitted mine for £20 so I paid £80 per corner and saved myself at least £40 in grand scheme.

Any savings are good for the car :) I was thankful the other day I just needed a replacement battery rather than anything more serious.. I was so glad to get out of my girl friends Zest 2 Pug.... I think I might have been dying inside a little... :(

Any savings are good for the car :) I was thankful the other day I just needed a replacement battery rather than anything more serious.. I was so glad to get out of my girl friends Zest 2 Pug.... I think I might have been dying inside a little... :(
I'll get that feeling if I have to drive something slow, terrible steering and driver seat. I had pleasure of driving a Toyota Aygo and Yaris as courtesy car (wish it was the GRMN) back when I had to leave the GT86 with Toyota for day or two and then a Peugeot 108 or something in purple for week when the both fuel pump needed replacing in the 208 GTI.

I find it's amazing what you get used to and if you've never had anything sporty, driving something like that is a very new and great experience I think :) From my Honda Civic 1.4 I had as a second car, I've had a very varied car experience I think, even with the few cars I've actually owned. I hope one day I can get something that's more what I'd like rather than what I can perhaps afford... :)

I don't think I can go back to driving anything with poor steering rack after experiencing the GT86, the Seat Leon FR diesel I had was way too artificial with the weight of turning the wheel to how direct the steering is corresponding to the wheels turning.
200bhp is a minimum for me aswell when it comes to power, can't go anything lower than that or i'll just cry..

I know what you mean.. Whilst some call the Cupra a beast, for me it's a fairly average performer, but I'd love to give it a little more grunt and performance... Kinda fancied a dump valve for it :laugh:
