    Triple-lock on pensions will stay. Pensions will increase when earnings have decreased

    Remember when there was absolutely going to be an 18% hike in pensions due to the triple lock and nothing could be done to stop it? Pepperidge farm remembers. 2.5% second year running. Told ya so.;)

    Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare (and Warzone)

    This explains so much, I've been wondering how on earth people have been getting that insanely low recoil - it was driving me nuts. Anybody else notice the FFA Kill House bug is still there after 14 updates.

    Any managers that aren't natural managers

    I would say they are not an excellent manager at all. As I sad empathetic but commanding. If he has his staff that riled up then I can guarantee they are not working effectively, and that makes him a poor manager in my opinion. You don’t need to be friendly, as you said it becomes more...

    Any managers that aren't natural managers

    You don’t need to be a people person to be a good Manager. In fact, I would go so far as to say some of the worse Managers I have encountered have been bubbly extroverts with little to no other skills. A good manager has clarity of vision, the ability to organise a team and workloads to be...

    Recommend me some trance?

    I suppose I'm just oldschool, but trance/edm just doesn't seem to be the same now. Some I enjoy:

    Are specialist forums dying?

    I ran a specialist forum with several thousand members for over a decade and saw a massive decline in the last couple of years. Social media has taken away the social aspect of forums, no question. However, I have found the quality of information available on these platforms is massively...

    Is the Gigabyte B550 AORUS PRO AX available in the UK?

    Elite and Elite V2 have only one M.2 heatsink, Pro and Pro V2 have two. I guess down to personal preference really, but 4 is the minimum I would consider for a board, I have four SATA devices plugged in at the moment and I don't think that's excessive. But it is worth noting it is a difference...

    Is the Gigabyte B550 AORUS PRO AX available in the UK?

    And four vs six sata ports, 1200 vs 1220 audio chip, and an extra M2 heatsink on the pro, different number of USB ports, different number of fan headers... so not really the same board at all :p Pro was always the better board, the elite was the budget option, about all they have done on the...

    Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare (and Warzone)

    I appreciate that, it was one of the first I levelled up, never did enjoy it though - however, I've encountered more players using it in the last two weeks then I've come across in the 12 months. All seem massively OP - which makes me think something must have changed in a recent update unless...

    Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare (and Warzone)

    Does anybody know what is the new MP5 meta for TTK in MW multiplayer? I assume it has been buffed recently given the fact the entire world and their dog have switched to using it in the last two weeks. I've been playing cold war for a bit, gone back to MW and now every lobby is getting shredded...

    New build PSU query..

    I have the same board, good choice. If you haven't already bought it there were bundles being sold on certain auction sites which included the APU and the Mortar, which was the only other way I could see to get the APU. Unfortunately, I already had the board otherwise I'd have gone this way...

    AMD on the road to recovery.

    Presumably it depends on whether they need an actual working computer or just an email with a preorder ID :p I'm glad I got my AMD build when I did, but I have a second system that has been waiting on a CPU for a month, if I didn't already have the rest of the components and I was in a hurry...

    New build PSU query..

    Don't hold your breath on the APU, only one UK retailer I know of is claiming an eta for restock - the rest I contacted tell me it is either a discontinued line or they don't know if they can get it, which given AMD are going to be dropping a new APU product line shortly seems likely. I've been...

    AMD on the road to recovery.

    Quoted for the truth. I see people recommending intel now, just because that's all that's actually left in stock anywhere.

    CPU and motherboard upgrade without reinstalling windows?

    I Swapped a B450 to a B550 and no reinstall needed, fired it up and it installed the drivers it wanted and happy days. Pleasantly surprised actually, I was ready for a reinstall or at least a few BSODs - Windows has sure come a long way from when it distributed on floppy discs...

    New build PSU query..

    Do you have the 3200G? If not, good luck getting one at the moment! If he isn't going to do gaming just run the APU and be done with it, they are perfectly capable for most tasks. If not, flog it and get something more suitable, seems a waste otherwise. Have you looked at the bequiet! PSU's...

    Looking for a high end router for a medium size business

    That isn't really big enough for medium, but its certainly not a small. I would suggest you really need to design a suitable solution - i.e. a decent firewall/web filter appliance and gateway. Smoothwall, Sonicwall etc - I would also be seriously considering a circuit like a 100 or 200 over a...
