The 'jerkiness' of his stop-motion creatures always added to the eldritch and other-worldy feel of his work; This is sadly lacking from todays smooth CGI work

Hailo, is it me you're looking for...
None of the Hailo drivers have copped on to why I call them Master Chief.
Well done mate
If your bar owner had a PayPal account I've send over a couple of beers (as long as you promise not to order Cruzcampo)
I did a version for the TI99/4a; I think I had more fun writing the code rather than playing the game.
Big Media needs to examine their marketing methods...
In the UK GoT is only available on Sky Atlantic, which is a subscription channel only available to those who have signed up to Sky. Many people do not have (or want) this channel, so the only legal method for them to watch the series is to buy the box sets which come out long after the season ends. Or buy it on iTunes episode-by-episode for a lot more than the cost of the box set.
So in these days of immediate gratification, it means that people are going to use alternative methods to watch it. Which means illegal downloading.
The only way around this is to make it available through more widely accessible channels (BBC, Channel 4 etc) or stream it for a reasonable price.
Finally, if I buy the series via iTunes and then download it via a torrent in order to have it on physical media, does that still count as piracy?

Kids today. When I was a starving student I lived on Smash and Oxo cubes.

I hope the manufacturers remember that trans-uranic heavy elements may not be used...
Indeed, every mistake is a lesson learned. I've often thought that wisdom is just the ability to meditate on a lifetime of SNAFUs.

Re: Last all week?
Not a problem if you bring it to the boil for a couple of minutes on a daily basis (or more regularly in warmer climes, which Spain does not appear to be right now)
These are the same people who continue to fail to predict profit forecasts and are always the reason for headlines that read "Share Prices In Globocorp Fall After Profits Fail To Reach Expectations"
Re: "an experiment in education of pirates"
Minecraft is proof that game-play is the prime factor in order for a game to succeed. Hi-res graphics; surround-sound; etc are all secondary to game-play. Home computer games in the 80s proved this.

Re: Time to go foraging?
scored a large amount of wild garlic yesterday
go to the website and check out the section entitled "Why £1". It's not supposed to equal £1 in Africa, it's supposed to equal the same value foodwise
Re: Do they not have street markets over in Spain?
They do- they are called mercadillos- great for fresh fruit and veg.
Re: Dozen eggs for a euro?
I have two chickens, and I worked out that after feed, bedding and sundries, I am paying just over 30c for a dozen eggs.
Good luck Lester...
In a slightly similar vein, I'm actually calculating exactly how much I spend on food a week. It looks like I'm going to blow through €6 before the end of the day (and that's after cutting down on extravagances like shop-bought sandwiches)
Re: Excuse me
No need- the way I can see to safeguard yourself against this is to create a gallery of all your online images and make sure they are tagged (by EXIF and captions) and accessible to image matching sites like TinEye. Then if someone uses your imagery without your permission claiming it was an 'orphan work', you can prove that they did not perform a "diligent search".
not really- I'm thinking of investing in a bow in order to keep the furry feckers away from my chickens.

Wild garlic is going mad right now if you know where to look for it.

There's no use crying over spilt milk, if she wasn't able to spot this earlier then she really needs to step down.
I don't think Robin Van Persie is his real name. He changed it from Thieving Van Penis.

Re: Call me sceptical if you will, but...
>In America, celebrity 'I'm sorry's are usually followed by 'God has forgiven me, so why can't you?'
The correct reply to this is "No, I haven't"
Re: Call me sceptical if you will, but...
Unfortunately, in America, they really do believe that saying "sorry" is all that is required. How often have you heard the phrase "I've said I'm sorry; what more do you want?"
In order for an apology to be truly meaningful, there needs to be an understanding of the distress caused; a genuine feeling of regret for causing this distress; and a desire to never cause the same distress again in the future. Most apologies fail at least 2 out of 3 of these points (I'm looking at you public transport).
He was shaking hands...
More interestingly- the drop in share price came after the decision to pay Dividends...
One hit wonder?
Now, I wonder if there will be an equal drop in subscribers/revenue when Hemlock Grove debuts over here...
>Anyway, if my Co's shares 'tanked' to $400, I'd still be laughing all the way to the bank.
Not if you bought them at $700 you wouldn't.
>"Only" 10 billion dollars in profit? Yup, that's a company that's really sliding down the toilet.
It is to a Wealth Management company who regularly deal in 100's of billions.

Re: quality control?
My guess is it was something that surfaced when Apple tested beta loads of v6.2 of iOS.
Re: But, but, but...
Precisely. As someone who sails, I want to know how strong it is and where it's coming from.

3 of my friends, who have had iPhones for years, all changed to the S4 rather than go for the iPhone 5.
