Re: Google Maps - I need to go from Japan to China!

From Taiwan to China... swim across the Pacific? ROFL!

Try getting directions from Jerusalem (Israel) to Cairo (Egypt). Apparently that part of the world does not exist! :eek:

Re: The "MS Paint Your Favourite Games" Game

*laughs himself silly* I believe we have a winner. ;)

What game is that? I don't recognise (or don't remember) it.

Re: This one's for both the guys and the ladies!

I always thought that pick-up lines were cheesy, which is why I never use them. ;) But on the subject of cheesy pick-up lines - here are the lyrics to a song "Wanna B Ur Lovr" by 'Weird Al' Yankovic. ;) It's a very silly song about very, very cheesy pick-up lines! :lol: "Wanna B Ur Lovr" I don't hav...

Re: The Hobbit to begin filming in February

Absolutely true, Collector - full marks. The sort of conditions that workers had to endure in the 19th century, before unions, are almost unheard of in 'western countries' today. Railroad workers, for instance, had to work from dawn to dusk - unremitting, backbreaking work with no possibility of bre...

Re: The Hobbit to begin filming in February

I noticed (and other people also noticed) that the dwarf company wasn't complete - no one cast as Ori, Nori, Bifur, Bofur, or Balin. However, I'm not too fussed to be honest - of the whole dwarf company in "The Hobbit", the only dwarfs with real personality were Thorin (the serious one) and Bombur (...

Re: I can haz new shiny?

Hmm. *shrug* Maybe I've been using Office for so long that I'm used to the older way of doing things. I've used Office 2007 and it was a little tricky at first - however, it wasn't too hard to figure out how to make it do what I need to do. I still prefer OpenOffice, though. ;) In what ways is DRM a...

Re: I can haz new shiny?

Hmm. The main three reasons that I'd like to run XP are: - it's fairly easy to run legacy games (QfG, the Monkey Island series, etc.) on XP; - I don't have to go through a lengthy process (including DRM, for crap's sake! DRM is the tool of the devil!) just to use my computer; and - experience has ta...

Re: I can haz new shiny?

OK, thanks! ;) I think I found a good buy here - at most other places here, a new computer can cost up to $600 at least. OK, so let's see... I'll take the: - Dual Core E3300 2.5 GHz CPU - I think I'll upgrade to either the E7500 or E8400. What is the difference between the CPUs? I'm never sure what ...

Re: The Hobbit to begin filming in February

Awesome! Can't wait. :D

It'll be so cool watching my little niece grow up and introduce her to "The Hobbit" when the time is right. 8-) Book first, though - then film. ;)

Re: Cheating in Games

Ah... ok. I was thinking of games like Diablo II, where the point is to co-operate with others. I guess you must be thinking of games like Unreal: Tournament, etc.?
