    Coronavirus Death Toll.

    Having just recovered from Covid-19, it's an odd one. For me, it was a bit of an unpleasant fever. Worse than my average yearly cold/down spell, but nothing more painful per say, just irritating. It is really odd how much it can flip other's though: I have relatives who caught if from me and...

    Mandatory Masks

    Yeah I'm like Joshua. I only wear ones where they are mandatory and don't entirely understand people who wear them whilst walking in the open air/wear them whilst cycling etc. I think the measures will be gradually relaxed and become 'guidance' rather than stringently enforced with fines like...

    Area 51

    They've released declassified documents which confirms it's "real": As in, an actual military base. What they have there though is another matter. Likely advanced technology, weaponry and new aircraft prototypes. I don't believe in the theory/claims they have aliens there. From a rational...

    PHP 8.0?

    With the latest version of PHP released in November, PHP 8.0, I was wondering if anyone had upgraded yet? I recently came across some scripts coded in PHP still using 5.6 and I know majority of current scripts (WordPress, Xenforo etc.) are still only 7.x compatible. So have you used 8.0 yet...

    Logos yourself or hire someone else?

    When it comes to making logos for your own projects/forums/blogs, (if you have the skills) do you prefer to make them yourself or hire someone else? Whilst I've always been a huge graphic-design fan and can do things myself, I've often preferred hiring someone to make logos for me as I lack in...

    AMD or Nvidia?

    When doing a custom build, are you more of an AMD (Radeon) person, or do you prefer Nvidia for your GPUs? I started off with an AMD Radeon X before moving over to the Nvidia GTX1080 and was impressed as the solid performance boost I experienced. So much so, I recently upgraded again to the RTX...
