DC-6B Legends of Flight (PC DVD) by Just Flight
3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Flawed..., 29 July 2014
I purchased the JF DC6 pack as having returned to the FSX scene, after a few weeks of flying jetliners I was craving something a little different from just clicking a few buttons and flying virtually (no pun intended) from take off to landing on autopilot.

The DC6 per se is a magnificent beast and on paper well suited to flying longer routes slightly slower than a jet. Have Just Flight and their developer managed to catch this essence here? Well, yes and no.

The pack includes a large number of DC-6B variants and numerous liveries to choose from. External modelling is good and there are a large number of internal views including those from the passenger cabin. There's a… Read more
5 x Standard Glides/Stoppers for an Office Chair (&hellip by Office Chair Casters
5.0 out of 5 stars Cat Saver!, 18 July 2014
After a couple of near misses with our cat having crept up and laid behind the computer chair almost getting run over, I decided to check and see if there was something with which to swap out the casters and found this product.

Eureka! Little to say really, except that fitting was simply a case of clicking the old casters out and pushing the new ones in. Took about 45 seconds. The chair is now firm on the carpet and can only be slid by a great deal of effort or standing up, either of which would give the dozy cat warning to get clear.

3.0 out of 5 stars Occasionally Funny, 15 July 2014
Well it's funny in places but if, like me, you were expecting something in the vein of Lock Stock or Cockneys vs Zombies, it's not quite in that league. Danny Dyer and Tamer Hassan are in the prologue for about two minutes - in a scene that doesn't quite gel with the rest of the story - but after that largely a cast of unknowns.

Seems written to appeal to the element being lampooned, SWMBO didn't find it very funny not helped by minimal female characters - Dex's wife a stereotyped Essex chavette and assorted topless "extras" in strip clubs.

The sort of production that one time would have been considered as a one off show on C4 or C5 but these days qualifys for… Read more
