    It pretty good for "chat" type help. There is normally someone around for some immediate advice.

    Discord is a text AND voice chat app. Some Twitch streamers use it to talk to teammates in multiplayer games.

    In summary, discord is IRC + teamspeak + selling everything you type into a channel for big data purposes.

    Live many-to-many communications over a computer network was solved in August 1988, and I'll hear nothing to the contrary.

    I joined the server, but the Discord ecosystem can eat my backside. <grumpyoldman>If it's not IRC it's a waste of time.</grumpyoldman>

    Edit: Addendum. Through dumb luck hard work and perseverance, I made it through to The Maw on Legendary. At several no points did I die so much that the game stopped counting my kill points. At several no points did I scream like a little girl.

    Pretty happy with my car, First time I've changed a car in anyway

    Current changes
    Black double slatted kidney grills
    Painted gloss black bumper whiskers
    Gloss Black Mirror covers (not pictured)
    Blue carbon wrapped V brace
    MV1 72M 18" alloys

    To come
    Carbon Eyelids
    Carbon Badges throughout

    Future
    Hubcentric alloy spacers (to fix my offset **** up)
    Eibach Springs to fix tyre gap

    fin.

    Don't want to do anything else, a lot of this will be to my taste but I feel I've learn so much amount cars by researching modification and I certainly have ideas for a future BMW but for now I don't want to tempt fate by piling on modifications I can't justify.

    Transplanted the cherry tomato plant into the bigger planter and threw a few more seeds into the two empty ones (not pictured) - one's now full of the same salad mix pictured, and the other with seeds I harvested from the old rocket (no idea if they'll grow, but it's worth a shot!)

    I'm guessing this was sarcasm?, but if not there has been a bit-tech channel for around 18 years or so
    #bit-tech on any quakenet server

    I did not know this... Is it still active?

    Edit: And by "active" I mean, do people still actually use it?

    Not sarcasm at all - I use IRC daily. First I'm hearing of a BT IRC channel, though.

    Got my new tax code through after joining the private healthcare cover at work, was dreading how much it'd take off, but is only £250 for the year. Averages at £30 a month including the annual one off excess. If the surgeon manages to sort me properly Thursday out it'd be worth it at 100 times the cost.

    Maybe I'll spin up a bittech irc on a server or something then. Will look into it once back from the doctors

    Oh yeah, probably more important is the mortgage is sorted with the wife, good deal with some cashback to cover expenses so less outlay.

    Also packed for my mini break to Riga to see Rammstein :rock:
