  1. Alan added a post in a topic: What type of computer is your daily driver?   

    ​Do you use it as a laptop replacement and if so, how are you finding it? I've been thinking about getting a Surface for a while now as a replacement for my laptop, particularly with the keyboard-case. Haven't had much luck finding a local store that has one in stock and set-up with the keyboard to try it out though.

    I'm using a Nexus 6 but I'm giving serious thought to changing for a smaller one. The Nexus 6 is so large that it's nearly impossible (at least for me and my tiny hands) to use it one-handed which comes up surprisingly often when walking the dog, carrying something, on the train, etc. Will wait for this years new phones to be released then decide what to do about it then.

    Thanks for the offer Dylan, that sounds almost as bad as my WoW addiction. I dread to think how much of my life that game has sucked up

    Same here, pretty much all of my favorite movies revolve around superheros. Reservoir Dogs and the Usual Suspects are also near the top of my list.

    I think I'll probably hang on until Heroes of the Storm is released. I'm a massive Blizzard fan already but too cheap to pay for the founders pack to get beta access and too unlucky to get a beta key in a contest

    Anyone here play any Moba-style games like DOTA2, League of Legends or Heroes of the Storm? They look interesting and I'd like to give one of them a try but I'm forever getting told that they are not beginner-friendly and you'll pretty much spend the first few months getting screamed at constantly
    Can anyone recommend a beginner-friendly Moba I could try?

    Archer and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are my favorites, can't get enough of those two.
    Definitely watch Game of Thrones though as you haven't yet, it's also a great show.

    Pleased to see the Windows users outnumber the Mac users, even if it's only by 1 at the moment
    ​Half of the IPS team are drooling over their shiny metal and white keyboards right now.

    Paypal API set-up instructions need updating
    When adding a Paypal gateway in Nexus it gives instructions on how to get the API details from your Paypal account. Those options have moved now to the Profile -> My Settings Preferences section on so the instructions need updating.

    Re-opened this as there seems to now be a white bar covering the options. Cleared cache and tested in Chrome and Firefox and it shows on both:
