Episode 232 : Trapped in Jabba’s Palace

Not gonna lie, we talk a lot about Dracula again. Also lesbians. And Ant-Man. And Microsoft. If NONE of those topics interests you… you’re probably listening to the wrong podcast. Enjoy!


I just saw the movie trailer for Ant Man. Describe your thoughts on Ant Man; how do you respond to this super hero? –Cawfee

Have you tried Windows 10? What do you think of it? –Craig

    Arsed! Brownie points for the entirely better British way of saying it.

    So, I feel the need to be entirely boring. Windows 10 will be the “last” version of Windows in the sense that it’ll be OSX-style updates to the core OS, going forward. In order to get as many people as possible onto this continually updated “Windows as a service”, Win 7 and Win8/8.1 users will be able to upgrade for free. It makes a lot of sense, and lessens the effort needed to support those older OSes, while also ensuring consumers are babied with the forced-update model of Win 10 (apparently, a lot of flack Windows gets for exploits is due to people not applying fixes Microsoft have already put out there).

    Extended support for Win 7 ends 2020. Don’t use an OS on the internet beyond the support date.

    But yeah, even I thought the boobs became distracting in Game of Thrones. I hadn’t read the books (rather Tolkien-esque in their inaccessibility) but was pretty hooked after the first season, and wanted to see more plot movement and fewer slow boob scenes. Which feels remarkable a sentence to right, and testament to the griping story unfolding, I think.

    Yes I still live in Slough, though not for much longer as I’ll be moving someone before the end of the year. Also this is me being horribly behind on episodes.

    So an eHobo is to an iHobo what an eMachine is to an iMac?

    I’m pretty sure Cee Lo Green has nothing to do with any of my fantasy worlds, sanitized or not.

    Speaking of Muppets and profanities, have either of you wanted the new Muppet show? And if so, what do you think?

    Dracula: Meh.

    Carmella: William, was this better/worse than Dracula?

    Ant-Man: Prior to the new movie, I was only familiar with the classic Ant-Man (seen briefly in the film as historical newsreel footage). Though I didn’t know anything about the drinking/wife-beating. I enjoyed the Ant-Man film, but do find it to be the weakest MCU movie to date.

    Aquaman: I was only familiar with him from the Superfriends and that was incredibly lame. I’ve seen little bits of Aquaman since then, most notably in Justice League and he’s a much more powerful/interesting character than I was previously familiar with.

    Clark Kent: I’m guessing part of the reason he was such a good reporter is due to his superpowers. Kind of hard to hide the fact that you’re defrauding the city out of money when the reporter looking into it can see through walls and can hear you from a mile away.

    Windows 10: Yes, it’s leaps better than Windows 8 but not noticeably better than Windows 7. One of these days I need to back up everything, wipe my laptop and reload Windows 10 to see if that fixes some of my issues with it.

    I did like Carmilla better than Dracula, yes. And that’s saying something, because I did like Carmilla quite a bit.
