Not available for the anti-social among us, ie. requires Twitter, Facebook accounts to get it.

Hmm... anti-social? I can see from your new avatar... Which watchlists are you on? Grin

Hmm... That's the exact drive I have. Thanks for the heads up. I'm kind of surprised that I didn't find out before though. A an awful lot of that stuff actually goes across my desk and I didn't get that one.

Pfft! Everything else has gone to the dogs, so why not the SCOTUS? Grin

I pity the assistant... I can just see the assistant quacking up under the stress. Also, I might have pecked a different court stenographer, but so far so good. I'm sure she'll do an eggsellent job.

Meh... Different strokes for different folks.

Not everyone enjoys the same things. And that's ok.

Here's a fun sci-fi movie that some will love, and others will hate. I rather enjoyed it. But I like to suspend everything and just take it for what it is.

Ok, this is a bit long, but I **PROMISE** it is **SOOOOOOOOOOOO** worth it. Read the whole thing. It's not all that long, but not 25 words either.

The UK is a wonderful utopia of the most sensitive and caring people. Heck, if want to publish an autobiography (where nobody disputes any facts), and it could potentially, possibly hurt even just 1 person's feelings, well, you don't get to publish.

Now, try and name just 1 other country where people care so much. (North Korea doesn't count.)

For me, though, my favorite doctor is David Tennant.

It's almost impossible to pick 1. I've not seen a Doctor that I didn't like.

Nobody has voted for Matt Smith or Peter Davidson, but I really liked them as well.

If you like sci-fi, I think you'll really enjoy this.

Here's the IMDB summary:

Quote
A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

Ignore it. This is way better than that. But don't peek... I think you'll enjoy this going in blind.



It was a very enjoyable film.

Hey, look on the bright side. Australia and the UK are definitely leading the US in criminalising speech and thought. Though only the UK has had the strength of vision and fortitude to suggest re-education camps... so far.

From 1:06:43 of Doctor Who 2005 50th Anniversary Special - The Day of the Doctor:

Originally Aired: November 23, 2013

Peter Capaldi was lined up a long time ago.

Episode included John Hurt as the "War Doctor".

Damn... good ep!  Thmbsup

"Circles!!!' What a great hat tip!  Thmbsup And such a brilliant ending! Love the curator! (No spoilers for those that haven't seen it!)

Jon Pertwee for me.

BTW, if you're going to have Paul McGann in the list, you need to include John Hurt.

I just took the main series Doctors from here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w...d_the_Doctor#Series_leads

I didn't consider the others as I didn't figure anyone would bother there.

But, there are quite a few others as well. The list really would have been toooo long.

John Hurt is the only other person who portrayed The Doctor, (in the series), and as such is probably more valid as an entrant than Paul McGann.

The only other person who portrayed The Doctor that I'm aware of is Peter Cushing - that was for two films.

So your list is only short by two names.

Someone knows the Doctor Who universe much better than I do! smiley

Well, it's a bit late now. But hey, I learned a couple things, so not a total write-off!

Anyone seen this before?

http://www.patreon.com/

It's a kind of crowd funding for regular content creators.

From the FAQ:

Quote
Who can be a creator on Patreon?

Anyone can be a creator! If you have a passion to create awesome content for your fans, you can do it on Patreon. Creators are already making:


  • Youtube Videos & Channels
  • Web Comics
  • Blogs
  • Indie Games
  • Music
  • Articles
  • Podcasts
  • Animations
  • Illustrations
  • Photography
  • Anything you'd want to share!

It's got games there, so clearly there's a possibility, but I don't know if it would actually be practical for other devs.

Ideas? Thoughts?

Oh thank God, this is so great news! Can't wait to have them!

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not...  huh

ofcourse not! we are in a technology forum and I can't believe people are so much afraid of technological advancements!

Technology is never the answer.  It's a tool, like any other, and we as people that are on a technology forum must have a much greater scrutiny of the uses and abuses of such things, IMO.  That old chestnut about when you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail?  That applies to technology, also.

It's very easy to fall into as a developer- using the latest features of development platforms just because it's cool.  But that makes a bad developer, and a client that's not well served.

This technology is not ready for prime-time.  That's the only thing we're saying.  Not that it will never be.  But that it's not currently.  And Google agrees.  And Elon Musk seems to agree.  So what's so wrong with us applying our scrutiny and agreeing?  Because it seems pretty obvious to me that it has a long way to go before its ready- and that it shouldn't be the default state until it is ready, and that the standards should be a lot higher than for a human driver.

+1,000

ofcourse not! we are in a technology forum and I can't believe people are so much afraid of technological advancements!

I'm F**KING TERRIFIED!!!

I get a lot of confidential documents across my desk from industry players and government think tanks.

The technology is advancing too fast. There is no common understanding for what it can do. It is being marketed as convenience, but that's not what's actually happening. Behind the scenes, it's not "convenience".

It's a tool, but... it's not going to be used well...

Again, privacy pops its head up.

It's actually useful for other purposes.

Let's say that you want to screw with someone. For fun or otherwise.

You can make a bet, incorporate it, then show them the evidence. You could use this in magic tricks. smiley
