Philip Wray on Penny Arcade – Wookey Hole

You can still get the older style ‘penny drop’ machines in Blackpool (usually at least 2p though). Wookey Hole caves has a large collection of very old machines that are operated by old 1d coins which you can exchange there. (BTW, there’s no Netflix Quick Laughs here in Malaysia.)

Jeremy Harpham on Amazon Prime Video support ending on some Roku devices

I just received an email from Amazon “Amazon will no longer be supporting the Prime Video app on your Roku device (The specific models no longer supported are: 3500X, 2710X, 2720X, 2700X, 3050X, 3100X, 2400X, 3000X, 2500X, 2450X, 3400X, and 3420X) as of 1st November, 2021. We are continually upgrading our service and this occasionally means we can no longer support certain device models.”

A complete list of compatible devices where you can continue to watch Prime Video can be found here: Remaining List of Compatible Devices

Ian Barton on The StarLink Has Landed (he’s got one)! I am going to try it on the lawn in a couple of days. It needs to have a view of 100 degrees of the northern sky. There are some trees that limit the view from the ground, but it should be OK when mounted on the roof but I need to get some help in for that task. Watch this space!
