This week's episode is not for those of a nervous disposition, you have been warned!

Actually its fine, its just Dave in a scary mask.

An awesome video by Tom Scott was bought to our attention and it shows how tank drivers of yesterday were taught using "VR". We also check out a new horror game trilogy that uses 8-bit inspiration to produce something unique and creepy. Finally, have you every lost an important file or program? Well now there is an easy way to check to see if it has been backed up online.

All that and the Community Question Of The Week!
