The “What’s Made You FROWN Today?” Thread

Post by Kaldor »

Welcome back, grumpies!
This thread is back.

I’m frowning because my internet seems to want to stop working. It’s highly irritating, because it functions as “internet”, with access to the internet, but not as the internet should function, ie: device connectivity.
So I can’t cast to YouTube, screen mirror on Apple TV or use my Echo Dot. Will be calling Virgin in the morning!

Screencasting to Apple TV should be all about your wifi router, not your service provider, no?

(And I'm frowning because my service provider sucks.)

Nah, I have my router in “modem mode”, and a proper, decent router... I’ve done everything to my router that could have needed doing including firmware updates etc, so it’s definitely on virgins end.

Trying to find the new S.H.Figuarts Android 18 (Event Exclusive Color Edition).

I only found out about the Pre Orders being up 5 Days ago. By which time, they were long gone.

Premium Bandai are only charging $50 (Shipping to U.S only. :( )

BBTS are charging an extra $34. :o

The lowest price I've seen for her on Ebay, at present, is £91.25 ($119), plus Shipping $29.09 (Approx £22.31) & Import Duty $35.28 (Approx £26.97 at current exchange rates).

That's roughly £140! I want the figure, but not that badly! :x

I went down a rabbit hole on twitter and ended up watching a video of Simon Cowell getting out of the bath. The sequence of events that followed that were not normal human behaviour and now I am questioning the very nature of reality.

apparently it was a lookalike. That information does not make me feel better. Don't delve into the depths of the internet, it'll put years on you

Went for a coffee with my friend today before he had to go back to London. Really sad everyone's gone now and it'll be a while before I see everyone. Just wish life wasn't bad rn.
