I know you think you're clever, but using the pound sign (#) at the end of a URL simply means that you are pointing to a named anchor within the HTML page at the particular URL. It is an entirely different example to changing the actual URL.
The Hobbit sounds like a reasonable idea to me. But The Silmarillion has so much more potential for epic battles and gorgeous scenery, which was what made the films successful in any case. The Hobbit is more a children's story and the only way I'd go see it is if they gave Tom Bombadil a lot of screen time. <NerdRant>
If The Simpsons has been running for around 20 years, and Bart was 10 years old and Lisa 11 at the start of series 1, wouldn't that make them both consenting adults by now, seeing as they are roughly 30 years of age?
Aside from that, I don't know what's worse: being sent to jail for something as stupid as Simpsons Porn, or knowing that there is someone so tight-arsed that they actually decided to turn someone over the police for lewd drawings of said cartoon characters.
I'm surprised no one in Oz has been sent to jail for possessing Hentai... which is curious.
I work in the multi-channel publishing business and I can tell you from first-hand experience that discrepancies that arise between MSOffice products and OO0, especially those in their XML-based files (.docx, .xlsx, etc) are usually because MSOffice is more fault tolerant than OOo. Whether this is good or bad is up for debate. Personally, I think that working around bugs you have introduced on the first place is EXTREMELY bad practice. A simple example would be MSWord disregarding its own Schema rules when you decide get creative with the layout. OOo Writer then has to try and make sense of something that is not defined in the .docx XSD, and therefore cannot address satisfactorily because it would mean having to deviate from the "standard" yourself.
"I don't expect that Internet Explorer Mobile has any significant market share, but unlike it's desktop equivalent, there's simply no upgrade path available."
Opera or Opera Mini are great browsers for mobile phones. So will Minimo be when it finally gets unleashed on the world.
Microsoft's #1 problem IMHO is that their operating systems are too user friendly. This is certainly good for sales, but sucks when it comes to security. This is unfortunately necessary because your grandma hasn't the slightest idea what the difference between an OLEDB connection and a recycle bin is. So now they have to find increasingly more intricate ways of keeping script kiddies out of her email, while at the same time allowing her to delete her [win32] folder, if she wishes.
Maybe they should try to imitate Ubuntu a bit more in this regard: you get to do almost anything you want in the realm of casual users, but things you aren't supposed to touch is hidden behind a root password.
