    looking for a kitchen fitter/ carpenter/ builder type, as my plumber needs to get to a crumbling pipe to repair/replace, and need the kitchen fitter/ carpenter/ builder type to remove and then replace a unit underneath the sink for access.
    This is fairly urgent, hoping to get the plumber in early next week.
    South London based.

    thanks

    I keep an eye on stuff, but I like to be a bit behind the technology curve, let the early adopters deal with the bugs, and swoop in a year/ 18mths later when most of it's been sorted. I'll be keeping it for a good few years as long as the batteries good, so it needs to be solid.
    Last laptop i had, served for 9years, ipad mini has been going for 7yrs now and is on it's last legs, but no point currently in replacing it, as I don't use it that much, and though the desire to buy new is strong, I've been okay (touch wood) buying refurbished (laptop) and second hand (iphone) so I'll continue down that path..

    I’m watching a livestream of fighting cowboy play deathloop currently and immediately googled to see if it was coming out on the ps4 (currently not slated for release), and I did think I should buy a ps5 for it.
    It looks good, scripting and dialogue so far are excellent, and despite me not being a fps type bod the premise intrigues me.

    In the park with first born so missing the early kick offs. Hoping the browns chiefs game is on sky sports so I can watch that one after 9pm

    I follow the bill Simmons podcast, he runs the website the ringer, which also has a couple of different nfl podcasts. Simmons podcast usually during the season revolve around gambling, but the football info is top notch.
    They’ll be a bit heavy going to begin with as they don’t really explain any of the minutiae of the game, they’re talking to an audience who already understand the laws of the sport, the history and the current financial ramifications. But they are really good and conversational, and fan centred.
    I also listen to the mmqb podcast which has a couple of different podcasts within the stream.
    I try to avoid anything too hot take centric, and usually am guided by whether I like the sound of their voice, as well as the info they are giving..

    Good article, great look at what it’s like for a sports team to be active in their community and for the logo that represents them to come from that historical community, will be interesting if the nba ever puts a team back in Seattle what their logo/name would be? They’d do well to follow the seahawks and what they’ve done..

    Edit: wonder whether Seattle’s success with their logo is because they were an expansion team/newer addition so didn’t have the historical weight of a derogatory logo/name, so could go in any direction they wanted. Which resulted in them creating something quite specific and yet also something that is very respectful of the culture they are working from.. it feels like the WFT could take a note about this as well, as a way of remaking their logo name into something positive for the native peoples from whom they’ve taken so much

    I’ve come to terms with not having a ps5 until 2022, so I’m just planning ahead..

    playstation hour long promo fest last night was fun, lots of announcements of games people have been hankering for, and the long lead times until they are delivered will make for some interesting approaches to waiting/anticipating.
    all the game trailers are here
