  1. Just seen that Dessert skipper beat me to it… please delete mods!
  2. It’s been reported by Wigan that Maurice Lindsay has passed away! A hugely controversial figure, but he really put Wigan on the map with his vision! Condolences to his family!
  3. More spice to the saga… apparently he’s been stood down by Leeds for this weeks match due to a suspected seizure in training (source was the Leeds rhinos Facebook page) hope he’s ok!
  4. RIP Inga the winger… who played a lot of center at Wigan! Very sad news!
  5. I’ve learned to play the ukulele! I wouldn’t say I’m brilliant but as we had a cub camp the other week and I’m good enough to strum out some camp fire songs.
  6. Ok I’m way behind on this one… I’ve just started watching the series Hannibal. If you aren’t bothered by -really- disturbing images and sequences, it’s brilliant! i never thought Mikkeson would live up to Hopkins’ portrayal in Silence of the Lambs, and while I wouldn’t say he’s better… I don’t think I’d say he’s worse either.
  7. I always thought I’d miss them but when I watched my first game without them I only realised they’d gone at half time. imho they’re an archaic throwback to RU and certainly the way the game has gone they were irrelevant.
  8. Yes Eth has huge potential if the things they want to deliver in eth 2.0! Otherwise one of their competitors, like Cardano or Polkadot could take over. Eth’s biggest problem at the moment are the ridiculously high gas fees. I do love the concept!
  9. Ok to sum up quick XRP is a crypto that aims to replace swift as the way international banks transfer money between different currencies. The product which works on the xrp ledger (which is essentially the database that stores the transactions) is called ODL or On Demand Liquidity and allows the transfer of money across the world is seconds with tiny fees. hope that helps a bit!
  10. I am heavily in to crypto. Ripple (or XRP as the coin is actually called) won’t get pumped for long, it’s got a lot of downward pressure on from Ripple labs constantly selling their supply and McCaleb constantly offloading selling his purse too... lump that in with the Sec during ripple and it’s difficult to see a sustained pump! That said it’sa good project with a solid use case.
  11. The only way this would hurt the institutions is of all the buyers were to try and redeem their physical silver. This is why I suspect this is the institutions trying to jump on the bandwagon! They’d never risk out with gold, but silver isn’t going to upset too many applecarts!
  12. Looking at the Reddit group they haven’t recommended silver and think it’s the institutions doing this to try and cover their losses. Silver is an interesting case though as it’s believed many of the silver ownership bonds have been sold to multiple owners. Meaning that if people went to retrieve the silver they theoretically own there wouldn’t be enough silver to pay it out.
  13. Actress Mira Furlan, from Babylon 5 and Lost. I met her albeit briefly at the Babylon 5 convention in Blackpool and she was utterly charming and lovely!
