  1. Better Call Saul

    Started re-watching Breaking Bad today but am only up to episode 2 so might take me a while to get to the Tuco episodes
  2. Better Call Saul

    ​I didn't know that was Tuco until Matt mentioned it this morning. I think I need to re-watch Breaking Bad to remind myself of what happened. Also, episode 2 just went up on Netflix UK
  3. Better Call Saul

    Any of you guys watched this yet? If not, consider the rest of this topic to be massive spoilers and stop reading now First episode was on Netflix this morning in the UK, not sure about the US / rest of the world. I loved it myself, first 5 minutes were a bit odd but glad I stuck with it as it gets much better. Should be fun to watch Saul evolve in to the scumbag lawyer we all knew and loved in Breaking Bad
  4. Introduction Thread

    As you may have guessed from my username, my name is Alan and I'm an alcoho... wait, wrong group. I started with forum software back in the day, the first forum I remember setting up was a phpBB site and that was in 2001 or 2002. Before then I was all about the BBS's, RA, Proboard and then QuickBBS being my software of choice. Over the years I've used all of the popular PHP-based forum software until I settled on IP.Board about 6 years ago. Liked it so much that I joined the IPS team in 2012 and I've been here ever since, quietly working away in the background
  5. What video game system do you own?

    I'm a PC Gamer through and through. I did buy a 360 a while back, basically just for GTA5 but haven't played it for ages.
  6. ​Do you use it as a laptop replacement and if so, how are you finding it? I've been thinking about getting a Surface for a while now as a replacement for my laptop, particularly with the keyboard-case. Haven't had much luck finding a local store that has one in stock and set-up with the keyboard to try it out though.
  7. What phone do you use?

    I'm using a Nexus 6 but I'm giving serious thought to changing for a smaller one. The Nexus 6 is so large that it's nearly impossible (at least for me and my tiny hands) to use it one-handed which comes up surprisingly often when walking the dog, carrying something, on the train, etc. Will wait for this years new phones to be released then decide what to do about it then.
  8. Moba Games

    Thanks for the offer Dylan, that sounds almost as bad as my WoW addiction. I dread to think how much of my life that game has sucked up
  9. Favorite Movie(s)

    Same here, pretty much all of my favorite movies revolve around superheros. Reservoir Dogs and the Usual Suspects are also near the top of my list.
  10. Moba Games

    I think I'll probably hang on until Heroes of the Storm is released. I'm a massive Blizzard fan already but too cheap to pay for the founders pack to get beta access and too unlucky to get a beta key in a contest
  11. Moba Games

    Anyone here play any Moba-style games like DOTA2, League of Legends or Heroes of the Storm? They look interesting and I'd like to give one of them a try but I'm forever getting told that they are not beginner-friendly and you'll pretty much spend the first few months getting screamed at constantly Can anyone recommend a beginner-friendly Moba I could try?
  12. TV Shows

    Archer and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are my favorites, can't get enough of those two. Definitely watch Game of Thrones though as you haven't yet, it's also a great show.
  13. Pleased to see the Windows users outnumber the Mac users, even if it's only by 1 at the moment ​Half of the IPS team are drooling over their shiny metal and white keyboards right now.
  14. IP.Board 3.4 has a sitemap generator built-in so you don't need an add-on now. You can find the sitemap settings in your Admin CP under System -> System Settings -> Sitemap Settings.
  15. A big Thankyou

    Thanks Ozzie, I'm pleased that we were able to help :)
