    Dr Who

    I don't really like any of the doctors after the 6th (Collin Baker), except for the 8th (Paul McGann). if I had to name favourites it would be Peter Davidson (5th), followed by Paul McGann (8th) and finally TomBaker (4th). My least favourites are in order Christopher Eccleston (9th), Peter Capaldi (12th) and Sylvestor McCoy (7th). I absolutely hated Chris Eccleston as the doctor, his character reminded me too much of Will Mellors character (Gaz) in Two Packets of Crisps and a Pint of Lager, Peter Capaldi is just way too serious and melodramatic for me, not a good doctor at all, and Sylvester McCoy just seemed to blunder his way through the role, the only saving grace for McCoy was his sidekick Ace (Sophie Aldred). As to the wild card, Pail McGann, I liked him in the role, he was good and I would definitely like to see him in more, but as it is with only one movie under his belt as the doctor I just haven't seen enough of him in the role to really formulate an opinion other than he was pretty good in the film.

    Hmn, if it was the case that his numbers were all subs and not just active ones then, how does that work out? Because if it wasn't only active subs then the numbers would be well above 11 million which iirc was the peak figure for total subs.

    Windows 10 question

    How to disable P2P updates in Windows 10 First, open the Start Menu and select Settings, then click Updates & Security. Make sure Windows Update is selected in the left-hand navigation pane (it’s the default when you open Updates & Security) and then click Advanced Options in the main pane. You’ll see a lot of options and checkboxes. Peruse them if you’d like, but for today’s task, you’ll want to click on Choose how updates are delivered. Now you're on the page with the options that legislate how Windows 10 handles P2P updates. By default, Windows 10 will both send and receive updates from devices on your network and the Internet at large. It’s the latter option that’s the potential data cap destroyer. Using the options on this page, you can opt to only allow P2P updates among machines on your local network, or disable them completely and rely on Microsoft’s servers alone—just like the good ol’ days. If you look in windows update settings you will see a drop down that has the options you want in it, however it will be greyed out and tell you something along the lines of only administrators can change these settings even if you are an administrator. There's a workaround for this, Go to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update and change the setting in Configure Automatic Updates to Allow local admin to choose settings, you can now go back to the windows update settings page and choose not to download updates.

    Star Trek Online

    Dilithium is pretty easy to get if you work for it, I make around 3k+ per character per night (I have 19 characters lol), what gets me that is Doff'ing and Contraband. I have characters that are KFD who I use solely to do duty missions to gain contraband (each night I fly them around each sector and pick up ay disable, destroy, bombard, raid marauder doff missions), I usually rake in +20 contraband on each of them. Using that I get every character I have to do the turn in contraband missions from security officers to get 2k dilithium per 5 contraband and then just let them use all their duty slots on random duty missions. There's also two dilithium mining missions a normal one which everyone can do and a fleet mine mission you need a tier 2 dilithium mine for this one, these give up to 1k dilithium each for a few minutes playing mini games. There are also other duty missions you can get from you fleet dilithium mine which reward more than normal amounts of dilithium. Doing this and with whatever I gain from my main playtime I can easily bring in 50k to 70k dilithium per night. A little tip when building your holdings, start with the dilithium mine first, once you get that to tier 3 you get quite a big discount on the amount of dilithium and other resources needed for all other holding projects, it might at first feel like you're throwing resources at the dilithium mines for nothing, but when you get those discounts going on high tier projects you'll be happy you did, it makes a huge difference. Oh and if you want to spend a little time farming dilithium, this weekend is a dilithium weekend event ...

    Yes it can be a bit confusing, there is a lot of different things to do, but you don't have to do them all, that's the great thing about it there's so much I haven't done in the game yet my ship and its setup is still very effective in high end pve, it's one of the things I love about the game, the fact that you're not forced to do everything to be competitive. That plus you can save up dilithium and use the exchange to trade it for zen which you can buy what you want fromt he cash store so you don't need to spend money. As to currencies, yeah there's a lot, but there's a lot of them that you don't need to think much about, you have your EC (general trading currency player to player), Dilithium (special currency, can be traded for store credit or used to purchase high end stuff), Zen (STO's version of Turbine points, they're your main currencies. Reputation Marks, one for each reputation, you only need to worry about these if you want to buy something from a specific reputation. Fleet Marks; these are used in fleet projects for building your fleet holdings (starbase, dil mine, embassy etc), they only exists to donate so you don't have to worry too much about them. Fleet credits: these are awarded for donating fleet marks, dilithiium, crafting resources, duty officers or provisions to fleet holdings. They're used for purchasing from the fleet store. Event currency (favours): used for buying items from the event store when events are running, they have summer, winter, easter events, most of the stuff in the event store is fluff like surf boards, pet parrots and bikinis you can only equip on Risa, so you don't worry about this one so much unless you like that kind of thing. Event Vouchers: This is a special currency you get for completing a repeatable mission during events, you get 40 for each run and you can trade them for a special event ship account unlock, this year was a Ferengi Nandi Warship which is awesome and has a full array of bank, mail and exchange, as well as a dabo tailor and a special duty officer trade mission npc in its interior. Then the last one (I think that's all of them) is Lobi, this is a currency you only get by opening lock boxes, every box gives you a few of them as well as the "prize" and you can buy all sorts of ships, bridge officers, gear and fluff items with them. That's 14 total, of which you only need to really keep track of two unless you are after something specific. Here here. When I first heard lotro was charging for that I face palmed so hard lol Yup every 6 weeks or so they release a new episode which for the first weeks has extra rewards and can be played by anyone over level 10 (all rewards are free to upgrade up to MKXII as you outgrow them too), then they come off the featured episode list, converted to level 60 and tacked on the end of the episodes with a normal episode reward. Yeah if you can get yourself into an armada it should certainly help you, especially if it's fleet marks you need, there's people with thousands of fleet marks out there who want to donate them for fleet credits and can't because the fleet marks slots get filled almost instantly in bigger fleets. The armada system is designed to help smaller fleets complete holdings by allowing anyone in the armada to donate to your holding.

    Star Trek Online

    Star Trek Online (a game which I have a lifetime sub for and pop on every now and again) has just had some great new changes and a few pretty useful adjustments. I'm looking forward to the Armada system, it will be a great boon to my teeny tiny 6 man fleet, and because it seems to reward larger fleets for having smaller fleets join them I don't think there will be any shortage of Armadas to join

    The Rage Corner

    No I'm not saying smoking is not a health hazard, there are clearly obvious health hazards, I just don't believe them to be as bad as the government and some doctors say. As to the link to cancer, I used to do a lot of work for a company called Fulcrum Pharma, and one of the things I was told at the time by staff I spoke to is that the link between lung cancer and smoking hasn't been proven, there's a lot of evidence to support it but there's always been other factors involved that could be contributory factors as in your case with the chemicals and the radiation etc. so they cannot be truly sure. Edit: Multiple edits due to the quote system being borked.

    As I said in the quote, I was talking about UK. Or so they tell us, just how much of that is really true.

    The Rage Corner

    See, this is something I'm not so sure about, the whole "drain on medical care" line doesn't feel right to me. I've been a heavy smoker for nigh on 40yrs and I have never in that time been to the doctor with any issue related to smoking, and neither have the dozens of friends I have who smoke. Makes me wonder how much of the "known" health issues of smoking is bullshit made up to create an excuse for taxation. The difference is the difference between a criminal act and a civil act, driving regulations (they aren't truly laws) are civil acts of parliament (in the UK that is) which cannot be prosecuted in the criminal courts, hence why they only have fines, the only driving violations that can be prosecuted as criminal acts are those involving dangerous driving which is a criminal act. I firmly believe that they need to remove the road traffic act in the UK and replace it with a set of criminal laws so that all the fucktards on the roads can be punished properly for being such total fucktards, too many idiots out there who find it funny to act like arseholes on the road and endanger not only their lives but others as well.

    Why does this not surprise me in the slightest? Wrath of Hero's (EA's Warhammer MOBA) didn't even make it out of beta

    There's quite a few with similar systems already, Blizzard's actually quite slow off the mark with this one.

    The Random Crap Thread

    I fail to see the issue, the hardon collider is the predecessor of the Hardron collider, a smaller version that was designed and installed by Dr Richard Hardon, known to his friends as Dicky
