    I bet. I don't have the hardware for VR sadly. Ancient joystick is working ok for me. It has a crap throttle so I'm using it with keyboard for that and rolling. Feels ok.

    Ancient joystick and keyboard - playing on a laptop and I've never got on with controllers. Feels like a pretty good combination.

    Star Wars Squadrons is kinda fun - imagine it would be a mind f**k on VR though.

    Its lovely when they find another dog they just click with. For Comet its usually one almost the same age and not too much bigger but he did make friends with a bernese when he was a lot younger. That made for some pretty comedy zoomies.

    I find it quite hard to understand how you can own a dog and not be able to identify when it is happily playing!

    We meet the odd new dog owner who doesn't get the submissive / aggressive taking turns thing. That and the the play biting, which is all perfectly normal. Never had that sort of reaction though.

    Generally not bothered seeing as Comet doesn't tend to give other people a chance not to - he just runs up and rubs himself against people if they give him the slightest encouragement. As I mentioned a few weeks back, I did draw the line at a woman picking him up..

    Comet is going through a phase where he gets aggro with some pups of around 5 months. Generally he is a very friendly little tike and he doesn't mind mixing it with much bigger dogs. Just something about pups that age I think.

    Had a husky pup (huge) just charge at us the other day just being playful, but 25kg of dog running at you full pelt could do some damage. It jumped up at me and nearly knocked me over. Comet just ran around it and gave it a nip and it backed off. Owner was apologetic but if it had done that to a kid she could have had a problem. I think you just have to judge it.

    A few weeks ago there was a dad playing football in our park (which is an ex golf course and massive with dog walkers) with his two kids (both 10ish). Comet ran up to them, seeing the footballs and the kids all tensed up. He didn't jump up or bark or even touch them and quickly lost interest but clearly he just wanted to play. I apologised, as you do, and the Dad started giving me aggro which he got back with interest (wasn't in the best mood that day.) After that I got a bit nervous with him off the lead. Later I changed my mind - the guy was being a dick for no reason. Some people just are.

    I think expecting answers from that series is missing the point a bit but I understand that being the drive to read more. Agree the second was hard work but I really liked how it was written. Third one I enjoyed more. Made it worth reading the second imo.

    Years ago. Solaris is good.

    Unrelated - currently reading How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan. All about the history of psychedelic research and science behind it as well as the more recent resurgence in scientific interest. Fascinating stuff and very eye opening (pupil dilating perhaps!).
