Replaced LG Watch R with a Pebble.  Works with iOS and Android.  Battery life is up to 7 days.  Doesn't do fancy rubbish.  It's a smartwatch that tells the time, notifies you of things, and isn't Apple-premium.

Typical!  A suitcase I've ordered for forthcoming trips has gone missing during delivery.  That sort of thing is supposed to happen DURING the trip! facepalm

Had this confirmed by one of the staff. This model was originally at Shepperton. I saw this poking out a studio whilst working on the film Wimbledon.

Up close this is HUGE. The scale is extraordinary.

It would take one person 42 years to build this by themselves.

We did the CG werewolf effects, but here are the physical models. We had a lower quality maqutte at work for reference. It had a removable head that was occasionally worn as a hat by production staff.

Microsoft's how-old.net is amusing.  Putting two photos in, it came out as thinking me as either 47 or 61.  Cheeky sods.

I'm thinking that whatever is behind this is favouring women and making them younger than they are.. in any event, I do hope that it's learning and adapting.

Finally. I'd forgotten just what a pain it was to get to Leavesden from London. They sure have tidied up since the shows.
