Actually, i'm watching picard, quite entertaining.

I've watched a few episodes, but it's yet to grip me fully. Not bad though.

Too busy piloting an interstellar battlecruiser to watch "Picard" at the mo. Smiley

Need to finish "Justified" before launching in to "Picard" in any case.

Astrox Imperium - touted as "EVE Offline" Smiley

Single player with much of the flavour of EVE Online (which I played for almost a decade  Shocked ) but somewhat simplified. It's "early access" ... or Beta, as it used to be known, but shows promise.

An analogy, for those not in to computer games, would be of an "early access" holiday hotel. Reception and your room would look beautiful and be everything you hoped for but the top floor would still be under construction, the plush restaurant would have a superb menu but the only thing actually available would be beans on toast and the hot water feed wouldn't be fitted to the en suite shower yet. Smiley

Fun to be had for those who'd rather be a spaceship than a zombie!

Nipped out to Tesco this evening just before they closed to avoid the obscene crowds in the morning.

Tesco had barriers up to form Queue lines outside the shop.  Fairly full shelves, no pasta, rice or parcetamol, but most other things even in if the variety of any one thing was limited.
One lady in Full gas mask.  Most people including staff keeping distance, apart from one typical lowlife woman who barged past anyone with no thought for distancing herself, ironically she was Itallian !!!

I got all I wanted including several bottles of wine for Mrs Orcs.

We are having a hard time trying to stop her 79 year old Mum go to the shops.  We had managed to stop her until Boris said you were allowed to go out for essential supplies.  She took this as "I can go Shopping". We told her in no uncertain terms she could not.  Then Tesco brought in the over 70'S hour she took this as "I can go Shopping".  Again we have all strongly told her she is not to go out.  She is just looking for an excuse. Her Husband is 86 so we have told her that they are in lockdown for 12 weeks

She has no need to go out. She has a son living with them who can go out, we are 5 mins away by car and I pass near thier house to and from work so can drop stuff off.  Her other son is a Senior manager in Ocado's robotics development and is getting stuff delivered to them each week.  Perhaps is would be easier to shoot her now  Angry Angry

Do remember than any country-dweller in the Mediterranean knows how to make pasta with a rolling pin, eggs, and flour. The internet will give you all the information you could need.

Well, moment of EXTREME PANIC this morning, as my bank cancelled my payment for the Tesco's delivery due it looking fraudulent/unlike previous behaviour. Sudden VERY QUICK unlocking, and then... no, we won't represent the transaction, you'll have to speak to the retailer.

Fortunately Tescos customer services weren't overly busy at seven AM and I got thru quick, they represented the payment straight off and all is well and out for this morning. And once that's done the start for another free slot starts again!

You can also use olive oil in place of eggs.

Would you care for poached Olive oil on toast, or soft boiled olive oil with soldiers for your breakfast, sir?
