Yeah, powerline adapters. Used them in a few flats and have always worked ok.

Then using a DNLA TV with ethernet port anything on the home network (eg wifi to laptop, ethernet to PC) should be viewable?

Is using a NAS box and network plugs an alternative?

Chromcast doesn't stream media from laptop/computer though but stream the online content by itself, so if your internet speed is quick enough it shouldn't be a problem. Maybe there's a problem with the actual Chromcast?

I find the Chromecast fine when using Netflix, YouTube etc but when mirroring from my phone it's really laggy or else the audio is out of sync.

ah…yeah mirroring would be different. Guess cracka's way would be the most straight forward then.

Don't use mirroring to stream from laptop to chromecast, use Plex. Works in browser so the experience is similar to netflix using local content, never had a problem with it unlike other chromecast streaming options

Depends where you live seeing as a lot of people leave clubs at that time anyway so should be calm if you live zone 1-3.

So my little cousin is into supreme and has asked me to get him japanese text box logos from Tokyo. Should I…:
-Be a good cousin and not get him supreme but some other good shit mans at the scooter park haven't even heard of.
-Get him whatever is at the sup store there and actively promote the next generation of hypebeasts.
-Tell him to fuck off innit.

Could be wrong but have never seen or heard of Jap text box logos, they did the rising sun one years ago alright

Having visted all 3 Supreme stores in Tokyo multiple times during my 10 day trip you'll be hard set to get anything decent, the day of the Undercover collab drop there was no trace of it in any of the stores 2 hours after opening….whereas Fools Judge down the road were selling the tees for equivalent of €280, the store will pretty much just have same stock as London ones (ie. non hyped items…staff are equally as stuck up too)
