I was disappointed and disturbed to receive an email from Amazon this week, telling me that they were closing down their LoveFilm service. I have been a customer on and off for many years, only recently re-subscribing, so my wife and I could enjoy some of the many DVDs in LoveFilms back catalogue.

The reason for closing the service is a decrease in customers, who are now streaming their movies, instead of renting them on an actual disc. The problem with streaming is th….

the service often buffers, resulting in a rubbish viewing experience, a bit like the garbage and random symbols above.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
