I’ve fallen into a regular routine with my ongoing weight loss attempts, which basically gives me a two week cycle that ends in a roughly two kilo loss. I like routines, it makes it easier to stick to a task and achieve a goal; I’m just bad at getting in or falling out of them. This week’s loss leaves me with fourteen more kilos to go before I reach my target.

Without a doubt, the customer service of the distributor behind Warhammer 40,000: Conquest magazine is the worst I’ve encountered in a long time. It took them two months to answer my cancellation request email(s), and they have yet to answer emails about an “outstanding balance” they claim I have, even though I was fully paid up. I think it’s related to a delivery I received after they cancelled my subscription, so I’ve sent those issues back to them – at cost to myself. Fingers crossed that resolves it, because getting hold of anyone seems near to impossible.

I think my first generation, bought at release, AirPods are finally losing their battery capacity. I’m getting about an hour and three quarters of listening time before I hear the low charge alert tone. One ear seems to be worse than the other.

They’ve had a good run; I use them almost daily, for three to four hours a day, on average. They’re honestly one of my favourite bits of tech from the last few years.

I don’t know if I’ll “upgrade” to the Pro’s – price aside, I have yet to find a pair of in-ear headphones I can wear for more than a handful of minutes without discomfort.

When I saw the first trailer for Titans, I immediately wrote the show off. It looked so very bad; it came across as cheap, and trying too hard to be edgy and gritty for the sake of it. The follow up marketing didn’t do anything to change my mind. It probably didn’t help that I love another take on the source material: Teen Titans Go!1.

Tonight I watched the first three episodes of Titans, on a whim, and it’s much better than those first impressions. Absurdly better. I can’t believe it’s the same show as shown in the trailers. I’m not sure how much I like it yet, but I am planning to watch more of it tomorrow.
