Re: Employers looking at Facebook

I think a Dutch guy has recently been fired because he called his job and said he was sick, and then wrote on his Hyves (that's a Dutch MySpace thing) that he had arranged a day off by pretending to be sick. If you decide to join one of those sites and want everybody to see it, fine. But you can exp...

Re: Adventure Game Quizzes

Ooh! A choice between HTML and Flash! Very retro! :D Lessee how I do... King's Quest III: 9/10 (I guessed on at least half of them though) King's Quest VI Part 1: 10/10 King's Quest VI Part 2: 9/10 (no. 10 was a trick question! The order you trade items can be non-linear!) King's Quest VI Part 3: 1...

Hey nice! I created the GK3 one. Was a bit frustrating though, don't think I'll do it again.

Re: Things That Annoy You!

Something that annoys me right now... kids' TV. AGH! They're so cloying and saccharine sweet! And they always grin like demented Cheshire cats and discuss things like yoga, tofu, and holistic living. How the heck are 3-year-old kids supposed to understand this?!? And to make things even worse, they...

Re: Your Favorite Moment?

What's the Clue reference? :D *loves Tim Curry's manic butler* ;) What's not to love about this film? It has Tim Curry, Michael McKean, Madeleine Khan, Christopher Lloyd... and on and on and on... ;) When you look at Roxanne in the Staff Only room, Gabe says: "And I thought the French maid in Clue ...

Re: Your Favorite Moment?

Gabe's womanizing is fantastic! ("Madeline's fingerprint... (gasp)... Nice curves...") It's hard to choose though, I also loved his singing, his taunting at Wilkes, his Irish accent at Cazanoux, not to mention the Clue (one of my all-time favourite films) reference that literally made me fall off my...

Re: Spelling and Grammar on the Internet

Well you know Tawmis, that may be in the eye of the beholder. I myself always did extremely bad at drawing in school. And my handwriting was the worst. It's been years now. But I'm still drawing, unlike many of my friends and former classmates. They would've been better at it if they just kept up. A...

Re: Spelling and Grammar on the Internet

Yeah Deadpool... I feel your pain... Especially for me as a non-native speaker it's frustrating when people make mistakes like that because I often spend some time thinking "Hmmm, what could that mean?" before I realize they made a spelling error. Especially with there/their/they're and its/it's I f...

Re: Roberta Williams Anthology

I'm better, but the PC isn't. It caught a virus. We chucked it off, but Vista's now scanning itself a lot.

Nope, just installed it on my Win 98 upstairs. I could try it here but we haven't yet fully recovered from the last viral attack.

Roberta Williams Anthology

Through my week-of-good-fortune, I've been able to find the Roberta Williams Anthology at merely E 2,50 in a second-hand store in a village called Best. Unfortunately it came without any documentation, there's no box or booklet or anything. What am I missing and where can I find something to replace...

Rudy: for starters, giblets: edible bird organs.
Sweet & Sour Tripe: entrails & stomach of farm animals.
Still makes me gag, that scene...
