Re: Totally agree

For me, it was Starlord. I only started reading 2000AD when it merged. Strontium Dog and Robusters (and to a certain extent the ABC Warriors) all started there.

BOFH: Hasta la Vista... luser

Andrew Moore

hmmm....

Reminds me of the time I had to "fix" an ancient laptop (which only had a 800x600 display). The browser was so clogged with extra tool bars that the webpages only appeared in a tiny window (I'd say about 200px high) at the bottom of the screen.

Re: He's right but for the wrong reason

I've always said that we could easily have a mass cull of the stupid simply by having their satnavs work out when they are heading eastwards on Beachy Head and then issuing the direction "Turn Right Now"

Sock-wielding movie pirates go to prison

Re: Couple of $$$?

I saw Skyfall on opening night and it cost me €18 for two of us.

Prior to that I took my youngest daughter to see Brave on a Saturday morning and it cost €7.50.

Re: I wonder how he feels

My thoughts precisely- I understand the suit alone cost $200,000. Wouldn't this money be better spent saving the planet?

Dr No, Thunderball, Casino Royale? Vote now for the best Bond film

Andrew Moore

Re: I really want to like the Daniel Craig films

"Casino Royale (Daniel Craig) is an hour long poker game because the book is largely a poker game."

You might want to reread the book- it wasn't poker.

Apple squeaks over revenue estimates, misses earnings target

Andrew Moore

Re: I would say one thing...

That's the idea though- they make you pay for the full-whack RAM and HHD options up front rather than hope you will upgrade them in the future (in which case they hope you will just buy a new Macbook)

I'm guessing that they are still using goat entrails in order to make their predictions.

Inside the mind of a Bond supervillain: Psychotic, autistic - or neither?

Dalton's Bond...

"Dalton's, particularly, tried to get closer to Fleming's idea of a darker, more conflicted man."

One of the reasons I've always favoured him over the other Bonds. Dalton played the character a lot closer to how Fleming wrote him. I think License To Kill is the best example of Bond as written, fiercely loyal, cold blooded and willing to go to any lengths to achieve his objective.

Bloomberg's bomb: How SEC shredded Facebook's pre-IPO claims

Andrew Moore

Re: Caveat emptor only applies to a degree

But in this case, you could see that it was a Morris Minor, everybody in the industry said it was a Morris Minor. The only people that claimed it was a Porsche was the owner and a lot of 'financial analysts'. Now if you decide to go with the biased opinion rather than the informed one, then you shouldn't really be surprised when a Morris Minor ends up on your front doorstep.

Well originally Ericsson tech but Sony bought them out (remember the P800 and how amazing it was that the baddie was able to take a picture of Bond with it....)

Freetard-idol rock star Trent Reznor gives up, signs to major label
