    Fallout 76

    Ooh that's a top tip, thanks for that! Can't quite tell if I'm enjoying it or not, to be honest. It's always nice to be in a new Fallout world, but it definitely feels empty. Even with it being brand new, so you'd assume loads of people are playing, I've only come across about half a dozen other people in the 3 or 4 hours I've been playing. It very much feels like they've gone "here's a world, but we couldn't figure out how to make anything work with the multiplayer features, so you'll have to make your own fun instead". Bit tricky to do that when there's barely anyone else around though.

    Someone was following me around for ages earlier, and I was getting really annoyed because he kept coughing every 20 seconds or so. One of those horrible throaty coughs with all phlegm rattling around. Awful. Eventually I wondered aloud (after all, I've no headset/mic) "how the fuck do I mute this coughing prick..." and was shocked when he shouted back "eyyyy fuck yee ya cunt" and started shooting me while shouting further obscenities. Fallout 76 has taught me that there's a microphone in the PSVR camera, and if it's plugged in, it's always working.

    I've just "acquired" a PS4 copy, which is a bit annoying because I played the beta on Xbone so my progress is all on there. Also I don't have a PS4 mic, so communication is going to be a bit of a bugger. Still, we'll see what happens. If any of you lads are on PS4 and don't mind hanging out with a mute, I'm MisterHumphries.

    Just in case - another one of those fake texts from "Sony" is doing the rounds, asking you to click the link to reset your password. If you get the text, don't do it! Log into your PSN account as normal instead, and change your password asap.

    The Why Don't You Get a Job Thread

    I looked into unfair/wrongful dismissal a few months ago when I was let go from my last job for rather spurious reasons. I was doing support work, and the mother decided she'd rather put her own grown-up kids on the payroll to keep all the money in the family instead of paying for outside support. To do this, she had to fire people who were all told we "aren't the right person for the job going forwards", despite the fact that "going forwards" the job was going to involve exactly the same things we'd all been doing with no issues over the last couple of years. It turned out that in order to claim anything, you have to be employed by the person/company in question for a minimum of 24 months. Wouldn't you know it, I was let go 23 months into the job. It's almost as if they knew... Still, fuck 'em. Took a couple of months off to piss about enjoying myself, and ended up with a couple of long-term agency contracts working with kids in SEN schools. Turn up, have a laugh with them, and bugger off home. No stress, no internal politics, decent pay, and guilt-free time off during school holidays. Delightful!
