+MartinJJ NoAgenda my other half had a friend over who bought a #Plebware  Sunday paper, The Sunday Telegraph, who is claiming victory for an initiative they claim they started. The paper is owned by Muurrrrdoooooccckkk (as screamed by Fletcher)

I'm tempted to photograph it and post it, but I'm also too embarrassed to admit I have such a thing in my possession.

Nice sunset on Sunday night, going out again tonight (I'll take my ND filter this time).

I wonder if anyone got to the bottom of why Game had those financial problems a few years back?

Sounds legit.

Seen to remember Ralf Schumacher having 2 concussions in close succession. Maybe the US GP when only 6 cars raced.

That was 03 at Monza and the USGP. The really bad one was the following year when he backed into the wall on the final turn of the USGP. 78g deceleration resulted in another concussion and 2 cracked vertebrae!

Expand Nexus Player Storage via OTG Connection - Do you have an unused HDD or SSD laying around? Toss on this repackaged boot image and grab a USB On-The-Go cable to soup up your Nexus Player with the space it needs. Details and download provided by TWRP’s Ethan Yonker after the jump. The post Expand Nexus Player Storage via OTG Connection appeared first on xda-developers. http://ow.ly/2YYJlO
4GB of user accessible storage on the #NexusPlayer is a bit small, especially in 2015. Tonight I attached an "old" 64GB SSD via USB OTG and repacked the… - Ethan Yonker (Dees Troy) - Google+

I'm looking for a bag that will be able to hold my D5300, a couple of lenses and my Manfrotto 190XB tripod. The Manfrotto Agile Slings have caught my eye but I'm not sure whether they'll be able to take my tripod.

Does anyone have first hand experience of this combo (long shot I know).

I'd rather not have to take my tripod to the shopping centre (Mall for US cousins).

As a disclaimer: I have not used the bag you mentioned.
Having said that, I have used (from a professional as well as amateur perspective) pretty much every kind of bag and support system out there. The absolute best solution for amateurs (and, depending on the scope, professionals as well) is a sling.
I'm using the one described here:

And let me tell you, it is well worth the very modest investment.

First visit, a little confused as entry was free but had to queue for someone to ask if I wanted to donate any money. This caused a delay getting in and also a little guilt trip on the way in. Food was nice (if a little expensive).

I've never had a bad experience at the Tyneside Cinema. It has to be the most comfortable cinema around with a great coffee bar to boot.
