Thankyou for supporting our language.
I see plenty of really bad English and about half the time I cannot even understand it. So what chance do second language speakers have?
I get sub human grunts as emails for Ebay sales, sometimes I ingnore them, often I deliberately misread them until they get it into their tiny brains that they need to write in English and not the written form of grunting.
Apart from owning some 1980s VCRs of that format (still working) I have rarely tried to use any other sound track but that of the game itself.
With the quality and suitability of the supplied ones, it would be wrong to do it.
HOWEVER I did once try to use an external from game sound for multiplayer but it would not use it as I needed chat.
The music was the download of the games sound track.
Dump film music, keep games, take TV HiFi Camera ect up market again and drop the cheap crap.
I have a lot of decent Sony stuff, none of it was cheap.
One of the worst LCD TVs I have seen - cheap Sony, best, expensive Sony, you would not think they were same manufacturer.
My 1982 portable video recorder still works!
Yes I am old enough to remember they were premium and worth the premium, they still have the odd product like this, but they have to stop competing against the Koreans and start competing on quality rather than price again.
They need to remember why people bought Trinitron TVs, and it was NOT the price
People mention multiple universes, could dark matter be that?
My personal idea is that dark matter and dark energy are not actually there, but are the equivalents of an adjustment to make things fit. Basically that spacetime is not fully understood.
But like most people I am waiting for the scientists to letus know.
But the idea of beheading videos on a social network is just sick, I would hate to even accidentally see one, I would have nightmares. And I like action films, I thought Bad Taste was hilarious, I play a lot of shooter games.
But a few breasts, I see them everyday, why would they offend me?
So to censor a natural part of half the population (as an example) but to allow seeing REAL people getting their heads cut off, why is it allowed?
Facebook are sick.
I would be happy for them to end up on the block list until they grow up.
Can't view it.
But can't you just kick these Po's off their "coota". (Anyone understand this reference - you will if your children are teenagers)
I mean they are small and get called stinkwheels so lay into them!
All bikers know the only acceptable step through is the Honda C50/C70/C90 series.
Not worth it, I moan about on screen logos - no change except I stop watching.
I complained about a SCD (my wife likes it) have no DD5.1 and they lumped it in with voting moans (I didn't care - where was the missing sound.)
So basically genuine technical complaints get ignored for the moaning saddo squad.
Well my abilites are important as I am the main programmer, my boss does some C but to 1980s standard, no multithreading, the new chap is reasonably competent we have some assistance from an Indian programmer (the one who set his own company up) who maintains a shape designing screen for us.
The bulk will end up on my plate and the new chaps plate if he sticks around.
I do get our office manager to knock up screens, not a programmer but knows enough to produce a flat edit screen.
Small bites do make sense.
I have had the OO pain and the event driven pain, so many languages now are so similar you can almost search replace the code.
I have found that people who class them selves as users and non programmers but who understand computers are pretty good at user interfaces.
I think our intention is to make a workable choice, get me to oversee it and use cheap programmers to do the grunt work, leaving me to do the analysis and the more complex code.
As before I also need to be able to leave it in a state someone else can look after it as this software would be released around 3 to 4 years time, and if this has a ten year life I would be looking at its replacement about the time I would be slowing down.
.NET even though it is MS is still looking like a good choice due to Vulcan, but I will be looking at Mono.
Basically a really good LCD TV will pee over all of the average Plasmas.
Basically a really good Plasma TV will pee over all of the average LCDs.
So if you own a top of range Pioneer Plasma (or the Panasonics with Kuro technology), LCD looks poor.
So if you own a top of range Sony LCD, Plasma looks poor.
