Can you move the app back to use internal storage and see if that fixes things?

Splendid news. Rutger Hauer for Harry and Frank Bruno for Carl please.

What was the last recent Rutger Hauer film you saw?  Dude’s in his mid-70s.

Hobo with a shotgun - he's still got it :) Captain Marvel shows that you can do the de-aging thing with CG :P

One other thing about the denouement to Machine Law...

I presume it isn't routine for a Judge droid to carry massive amounts of hi-ex in its casing? So Harvey must've known there was going to be a bomber at the protest march?

I assume it was standard lawgiver hi-ex rounds - just all detonated simultaneously. I imagine the a droid judge can carry a lot more ammo than a regular one.

I really like the Apes movies but can never remember which one is which or what order they go in. Is the one with the big nuclear bomb at the end stil chronologically last or did that get retconned?

Aren't the original 5 films circular in Chronology, so you can start at any of them?

Watched the first episode of the new Partridge series.

Tbh I wasn't impressed.

I thought the second one was better.

IIRC, a lot of the artwork wasn't that specific to the game, so just changing the lettering to refer to something else would probably get around it. The only major problem would be the 'Ghostbusters' episodes...

My recommendations are mostly music videos, film trailers and retro-game streams. Oh and it recommends I should pay them £2.49 to watch the 'Dredd' movie. but I already have it on blu-ray so, no.

Man, i'm missing Fopp in Manchester. Went into HMV yesterday with money to burn but was so put out by the shite selection I only ended up slapping a tenner down for the DVDs of the Frankenstein Must be Destroyed rerelease and the Lone Ranger movie double bill.

Strangely sticking my head in the window of Fopp, all the stocks still on the shelves. Somethings a foot mayhaps...

The Oxford one's the same, which is a bit bizarre - obviously they're still paying rent on the unit, so why not keep it open?

Lego Movie 2 - I think I enjoyed it even more than the first one, and I really enjoyed the first one. Laughed most of the way through it - there's so many little references and jokes in there, I probably missed about 50% of them...

I had my first ever Kaiju dream last night - it was awesome.

Isn't it written by Warren Ellis? I was tempted to watch it just because of his involvement, but the trailer made it look a bit rubbish.

I enjoyed Castlevania, but I'm not an Anime fan, so maybe that had something to do with it. It definitely helps watching Seasons 1 and 2 back-to-back though, as the first season is pretty much all setup for the second.

Professor Grabblefax has a collection of mutagens, which he has labelled Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta & Epsilon.  If the professor picks one mutagen at random, then changes his mind, replaces it and picks another again: what is the probability that he chose the same mutagen both times?

1 in 5, or 20%.
As far as I understand it, it's the equivalent of rolling a 5 sided dice and getting the same number twice.

I really enjoyed Overcooked on the Switch -and it has cooperative / vs. play.

Switch is fairly robust, but a Screen Protector and/or carry case will definitely help.

Getting an extra pair of Joycons is useful too as you can then do 4-player split-screen games.
