  • Roadhouse had one good quote based on an old theme,- it was the occasion when Red West was asked a seemingly rhetorical question, he replied: Does a hobby horse have a wooden dick?.
    Saw the first episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender, it’s very good, though given the glowing reviews, did expect a little more in the graphics detail. The stories…[Read more]

    The Lightning Temple was a lot of fun. It had this whole Egyptian pyramid motif with traps and such and even included some Indiana Jones references. It had you running away from a boulder down a tunnel and instead of the snake chamber it had a gibdos chamber 😀

    Great!

    Wish we had SD card slots still but they no longer ship that configuration to the American market. It makes me sad. They were very useful for handling things like photos taken on the go and other things. 🙁

    Yeah, I’d feel nervous about performing that type of surgery too. Don’t want to mess things up!

    😛

  • We have that feature! Shift + Esc brings up a detailed Task Manager with all kinds of statistics! You can right click on the header for even more information. Pretty useful at times 🙂

    Yeah, embedding takes up quite a few resources on the client side. The music thread is using 125MB! Outside of limiting how much stuff to post, the best solution…[Read more]

    Been too cold for the chickens to produce eggs so I haven’t had the chance to test it again yet. Hopefully it was a one off but we shall find out!

    Hmm, may need to try stir-frying bitter melon and see how that goes. Could be an interesting experiment!

    😀

    Bananas are good!

    And don’t forget Carolyn Jones!

    Haven’t seen Space Cowboys before but Tommy Lee Jones is usually good at least for a viewing even if his acting doesn’t exactly hold up well for subsequent viewings. Though, Men in Black was an exception!

    The Initiation was fun, made more so by the fact that I kept thinking of Princess Vespa in Spaceballs the whole time 😛

  • They also rather sparingly used the Ken Burns effect on a shot of a car with thugs all shot up towards the finale of Unleashed. 😛

    Chrome tabs have memory usage now, there’s an explanation here. Get a feeling we’re moving towards the milestone of a dedicated Chrome memory stats summary page, as distinct from F12 memory which has specific memory…[Read more]

    Haven’t seen bitter melon down here, could get it to grow against the wall of the house on a trellis, being an annual vine it will require a fair complement of water and nutrient to get it fruiting though. 🙂
    Have the parts for the mixer come through yet? It can be heartbreaking to discard an old and trusty friend just because it’s gone in the…[Read more]

  • Neville Brand has certainly played many a villain, and Robert Englund, who can forget him? Got eyes on Sanitarium if and when the movie gets here. 🙂
    Space Cowboys has not improved over time since the first viewing, in fact decidedly worse, so, despite the search for redeeming features and stellar cast, 5/10 at best.
    In Road House, Ben Gazzara…[Read more]

  • A beautiful world indeed for a Hoochie Coochie Man!

  • Laurie Stearn replied to the topic Samsung Tablets in the forum Projects 3 days, 10 hours ago

    Yes, thankfully, it just required coaxing out with gentle verbal and physical encouragement. 🙂
    The tray on the A8 has two bays, one for micro SD and one for nano SIM. Came over with a mild turn of spook-a-loo after watching the video on how to convert a SIN to a nano SIM. These things are so small, you need HP Swiss tweezers and iris scissors as…[Read more]

    Sounds great, a piccy of the kit and the up and coming work in progress workshop is very welcome!

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Films & TV Shows in the forum Discussion 3 days, 14 hours ago

    Eaten Alive was pretty fun, even if the slasher wasn’t very good at the job description. He had to keep chasing his victims to get them. In most slashers, there’s not really a challenge until the end 😛

    It also had a few familiar names!

    And The Zero Boys was also a fun one, but a bit too much action flick for my tastes.

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Samsung Tablets in the forum Projects 3 days, 17 hours ago

    Yeah, I always get lost in the new settings setup when I get a new device. There’s always a lot more and some menus aren’t where they used to be 😛

    Hopefully the SIM can be acquired with minimal fuss!

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Hardware Relics in the forum Discussion 3 days, 17 hours ago

    Finally got around to ordering the rest of the dissection tools 😛

  • Laurie Stearn replied to the topic Random in the forum Discussion 3 days, 18 hours ago

    In the “good old days”, such as they were, many trains had luggage compartments in the carriage, or an entire carriage for luggage, a caboose if you will. Different solutions are required today for the commuting cyclist of today, perhaps one or two carriages equipped with extra racks would do the job.

    Interesting stuff on the radio today:

    And related!

    Thought I had posted it here but didn’t see it. Oh, well! The more the merrier!

    And DEVO!

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Films & TV Shows in the forum Discussion 6 days, 18 hours ago

    😀

    That’s a real problem! We get slasher marathons from time to time OTA and Tubi has a dedicated category for them.

    Yep, seen it. Thought it was really just a random combination of action scenes with a frivolous plot. Of course, my dad loved it. He just likes action in his movies, plot be damned. 😛

    Saw this one yesterday and it…[Read more]

    🙂 Jeepers, the “needle jumps” 50 secs in. Someone over there mentioned Lord of the Flies/Children of the Corn/Planet of the Apes, thus the moral of the story is: Fat wins the day? 😛
    Yes, and newsflash read all about it, all those great films will never make it over on any of the umpteen fta channels over here. 🙁

    Weird, Bergeron was a Frenchman, from a French family, with a motto on the fca in English. His father doesn’t have it, but Nicolas much earlier has it. She uploaded the image to the site with nary a historical reference, thus it has merrily propagated to other commercial heraldry sites like this with the usual beguiling authentic look.
    Yeah the…[Read more]
