Main discussion

  1. Where did the UI team hit the right balance between Immersion and functionality. Making it easier for new players and quicker for old ones? And where do we think the real balance lies?

  1. Dockers is doing a Charity Christmas Special
    1. I know it’s only September and good taste dictates that Christmas should never be mentioned until long after Halloween, but in the world of entertainment Christmas has to be prepared well in advance. When you think about preparing for Christmas, you’re probably thinking about the dinner. Will it be turkey? Beef? How about an enormous cock?

      Yes, the Dockers are coming back this year with a Christmas special and they have set up a kickstarter on justgiving. Yes that’s right, a kickstarter on Just Giving. I don’t think they quite understand that all the money will be going to charity.

      If you haven’t heard of it before Dockers is a mockumentary podcast about the ordinary folk of the Galaxy from the lowly toilet attendants to famous wildlife documentary makers. It’s been going for a few years and usually does a live show at Lavecon, late at night, well after the watershed because it’s very, very naughty

      If they meet their target they will put on the Christmas show, (though to be honest they will put it on regardless.) They have some rewards in their charity kickstarter. If you ever fancied being the subject of a documentary  there are a few options to get your name in the show. Some of them are pretty unsavory.
1£5.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for no additional cost!
2£10.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a small additional cost!
3£20.00Have your name read out by the Narrator at the end of the show with the credits.
4£30.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a substantial additional cost!
5£40.00A lifetime supply of Gnosis Avian Cheese**While stocks last (10 available). Only one block per lifetime, believe me that is enough. No refunds. First come first serve. After ten blocks are allocated reward will be downgraded to tier 3
6£50.00A sketch featuring you written and performed by members of the cast of dockers.* To be clear when we say members we don’t mean penises. The segment will be up to 5 minutes long.
7£200.00A character of our choice will perform a sex act on you during the show**This will be a dramatisation not an actual act you sicko
8£500.00A character of our choice will perform an enjoyable sex act on you during the show**This will be a dramatisation not an actual act you sicko. Enjoyment is not guaranteed.
9£1000.00We will have your ears surgically removed so that you never have to listen to the show again.*Need I tell you that this is satire and not a cure for body dysmorphia?
10£10,000.00The episode will be set in the Star Citizen Universe
11£11,000,000Are you a pharma-bro? We will record a 40 minute episode exclusively for you. Nobody else will be able to listen to it unless you let them.

  1. Hi chaps and chapesses!
    there’s no download link for episode 360?
    FYI, I’ve also noted this on Facebook.

    I need this for my daily commute! 🙂


  2. Ben Moss-Woodward

    I’m a noob, and I’ve updated the post 🙂 However if you use this for your commute and you’re manually downloading, there’s a whole reason why we’re a podcast… both iPhones and Android have “podcast players” Personally I use podcast addict on Android Then in the podcast app you can search for and subscribe to Lave Radio (other podcasts are also available) and the app will auto magically download the show as soon as we push it out without you needing to wait for me to not be a plonker 🙂

    Fly Safe and thanks for listening!

  3. We have 240v power points in our bathrooms here in Australia. So my question is, where to you plug in your hair dryers and electric toothbrushes in the UK?

  4. For those interested, in Back To the Future 2 there was a deleted scene in which Bif’s wife shot Bif, hence he is dying when he returns to 2015… alas they removed the scene, hence no-one quite understands why he looks sick in that scene.
