Ezio

Just looked up the voice actors. Ezio Wheatly and a Grand Theft Auto character.

I hope he doesn't sound like Ezio as I once completely screwed up on a Desmond section as when he was climbing, he talked and I used the same buttons as Uncharted 2 (same voice actor).

Seems silly they are not rebuying Cellnet

I mean they created it, so now they buy a competitor for what was their own system (and also I found had better coverage).

Or as I said to someone trying to sell me a Post Office telephone system "I already wih BT."

Re: Is this a tech site or not?

Alien 3 is not bad, just a disappointment.

Most dissappointed person was James Cameron as they killed off his new characters,

Resurrection is the drink mat supplied with the trilogy.

Re: Computer Games Movies

I reckon the new Ratchet & Clank movie may be OK.

Film scriptwriter wrote the games.

The voice actors are the game voice actors.

The game studio is heavily involved.

My dry period

I watched a lot in the 80s, rental tapes by the ton.

Then they dried up in early 90s.

So watched TV instead.

Then late 90s a shiny new format appeared. So I bought them, I got addicted, over 200 DVDs here!

Cheap BDs from Asda

Bought a few of these for a laugh.

And the films were not bad.

A Norwegian zombie Nazi film was quite funny.

B movies but not bad movies.

Re: Coping Mechanism

Say to yourself.

There was never a remake to "Wicker Man"

There was never a remake to "The Italian Job"

There was never a remake to "Taxi"

Chap at work said he had seen Taxi, I said did you like the 406?

The book is bad and the film poor.

Not even a second rate author, more like third or fourth.

The film could have been a lot better, but at best was OK.

Re: YOU WILL LOVE ME!!!

I just want a computer to do what I want. Different prettyness no problem, but completely methods aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Basically Windows was very similar from the one after Program Manager (95) to 7, that is well over 15 years of the same style. Well guess what they got the basic idea right.

I do not want confusing GUIs, as far as I am concerned ANY keyboard based GUI program should have a menu at the top. Basically the File Edit, so when non Windows OSes look more like Windows than Windows there is something wrong.

All the ribbon applications should have had a proper menu as well, I needed a news group reader in Win 7 so took the easy choice of Thunderbird.

MS Word I have to use addins with the file edit patch.

So basically do not get in the way of me working.

Oh and for anyone saying I could learn all the new features (which are just as likely to be rejected at a later date) of something I use when necessary I would rather use the time to improve my programming skills. (.NET is the next one).

Look I am over 50 now, and the last thing I want to do is spend my own time working out how something should work, when it should just work. It was not hard to build two Win7/Mint 17 dual boot gaming PCs.

I was fine in the DOS days, I loved Netware, Multiuser DOS was very good, I was OK with Windows. I even ran WFW on the Real32 server.

I will have a play with 10, we have a 8.x PC at work everyone avoids, then we will see how annoying it is.

Re: I'm free!

TBH I do not know if it would run on my XP PC, which was built just before Windows 7 was released (so XP was the current version of Windows at the time), but it is a quad core 4GB and thinks it is embedded.

Perhap it way, perhaps MS should offer a checking tool.

Well I have hit two, both THEIR fault.

One stepped off the kerb into the road, he got a sore arm from my mirror, was not looking, luckily I was going quite slow as the road was narrow.

Next literally walked off the pavement and walked into the side of my car!
