So today we got the news that Paramount has decided to pull Star Trek Discovery from Netflix and force the UK to wait until early 2022 to get season 4.
Well that just sucks balls and I am gonna be clear, I am not gonna wait, I will pirate it, why, because USians can’t help but spoil stuff.
Was the same with series 1 of The Mandalorian, so yeah, so will pirate it, and I will make it clear that this policy makes me extremely unlikely to subscribe to Paramount+ at all and I will pirate subsequent shows.
The golden era of streaming has ended as the market fragments as every company wants a piece of the pie.
But well, I need to dust off my pirate hat once again.
Today I took the old Core 2 Duo that was originally going to be used as a NAS until we discovered that the PC can’t run FreeNAS and I installed Home Assistant on it, running on a virtual machine in Debian.
It’s gonna be a lot of work to configure, but I look forward to the challenge.
I have had to reinstall Windows 11 on my main PC, I wanted to move away from the Dev Channel as I now need stability, but that necessitated a full reinstall, not a huge deal but it’s done now.
Got the PC more or less back to what I want it to be.
What Am I Modelling
I started the week off by painting a Shokkjump Dragsta for my Orks.
I had found my Macrotek Enginseer amongst a load of 40K Adeptus Mechanicus stuff, so I got them built and painted next.
After which I turned my attention to Sigmar finest, Yndrasta, the Celestial Spear & the Celestant Prime.
I got them more or less finished at the same time, but they are such important models I felt they deserved their own posts on Instagram.
I ended up painting them in the traditional Hammers of Sigmar colours, because I really want them to stand out on the tabletop and also stand apart from my Celestial Vindicators, because that’s how important their roles in the army is.
I then started work on Obi-Wan Kenobi for my Grand Army of the Republic force for Star Wars Legions.
So what’s in my painting queue for next week?
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
- Necron Skorpekh Destroyers x 6, Warriors x 3 and Canoptek Plasmacyte x 2
