Phenomena - an 80s giallo starring a very young Jennifer Connelly. I found the origin of the word quite interesting, btw. -->  I loved the locale, a boarding school near a small Swiss town. A high level of suspension of disbelief is required, if you like to nitpick about loose plot threads this isn't the movie for you. But it's exactly this kind of movie that creates an awesome atmosphere that's hard to find in regular, grounded to reality fare. Recommended for pure trashy fun, and a great atmosphere. I saw it off Youtube. cheesy The girl in the opening scene is Argento's daughter.

Me too. I feel I'm too old for them now lol - or maybe I was just insanely sleep deprived but it was all very unpleasant. Chile deserved a win, IMO.

40, I can identify. I feel that way about most popular sports. Cricket is one of the most boring sports ever invented and the level one is exposed to it here is, literally, nauseating.

I can get into tennis and atheletics in addition to soccer. The more I understand the intricacies of a sport, the more I tend to like it. And there's nothing like a (small, friendly) wager to really fire up the interest level for an event.

Spain and England out


England was out before Germany had even played its second game. (Ouch!)
Guess Portugal is on its way out too? Lots of big name causalities. Brazil have been rather lackluster too, esp. considering the home advantage. I'm hoping they don't manage to step it up in the later stages, though that would make for some amazing matches.

I've been rooting for Germany from the get-go. Today's match was a _complete_ nail-biter... hope you guys caught it.
SO glad Klose equalized in the end or it would have been embarrassing, to say the least. I tend to be pretty obnoxious in my pre-match smack talk... would have had to eat a large portion of humble pie had Germany lost. tongue

I'll be watching though the timezone difference is a bit crazy - lots of matches airing at 3:30 AM. I've already tried around 6 different iPad apps to go with the games. #geek tongue

Germany looked very impressive - they started somewhat slow and then it was like they suddenly figured out the Armenian players had zero mass and they could just pass the ball through them at will. No fun really when that happens.
When it comes to individual players Cristiano Ronaldo is one heck of a specimen - always awesome to watch!  Thmbsup

I'm in the minority here. Sad I didn't think too badly of 'Melancholia' - don't remember it too well... viewed it quite a while back but I've rated it a 7 on IMDB. I'm smitten with Kirsten "Fangs" Dunst, so that may have had something to do with it.
And I didn't think 'Oculus' was particularly interesting. 'The Conjuring' was the only horror that did it for me this year, had some seriously creepy bits.

My recommendations:

[attachimg=#]
Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' - Not his best but it has Anderson's characteristic quirky feel and is an out-and-out visual masterpiece.

[attachimg=#]
O Som Ao Redor (Neighboring Sounds) - I adore Brazilian flicks, love their realism. The plot is mostly easygoing but kept me engrossed throughout. And there just might be something more going on than appears on the surface. Wink

Are POP and IMAP OK to use alongside each other? It makes sense that the IMAP client can't access a mail after your POP client has downloaded (and presumably deleted) it. If you need a local copy on your main machine with IMAP, you could use the local copy feature.

I can vouch for DFX. It worked brilliantly with a Gigabyte mobo onboard soundcard.

I've hardly ever used drives other than Seagate and I've yet to encounter one that flaked out in the first few years of use.
OTOH, I've used a handful of WD drives and around half of them had problems a lot earlier than I was accustomed to.
Maybe it's a regional thing? More likely, just dumb luck.

It's just the way they're going about things, in this particular instance by making the default choice 'everyone'. G+ is the jackass brother to pretty sisters. You have to tolerate his uninvited appearances and constant mouth-breathing if you want to keep seeing the girls. cheesy

I personally find Youtube invaluable these days. I called up my satellite TV provider and had my account suspended just yesterday after realizing I haven't used the service for over a month. I'd be happy to pay for Youtube instead. But Google would rather annoy me with a service I have no use for than take my money.

Google is today making a change to Gmail that will further bake in Google+ to its webmail product in a way that’s actually somewhat practical, though also potentially invasive. Going forward, you’ll now be able to directly email your Google+ contacts from Gmail, even if you don’t know their email address. And by default, anyone on Google+ will be able to email you as well, thanks to this new option, if you don’t adjust your settings.

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Collectorz' bold new subscription-based update plans - brilliant? or suicidal? on: October 31, 2013, 01:57:50 AM
I wish IMDB would come up with their own apps for personal databases. I already use the site's watchlist and ratings features, and I'm way more particular about updating ratings there (effectively marking the movie as 'watched', for future reference) than I am in the Collectorz app.

I think Collectorz left IMDB to avoid paying royalties? Currently, they have a system whereby a user requests a missing movie (by specifying the IMDB ID) and they guarantee they'll add it to their database within 24 hours. I am almost certain they have an in-house version of the program which lets them tap into the IMDB database and import. It's hard to imagine someone on their staff entering the data for every requested movie manually. I'm satisfied with what Collectorz offer at the moment but at the end of the day IMDB is the holy grail and they're just middle-men.

It almost seems like he's shooting himself in the foot.

What I thought too - and that's not considering coping with the backlash, clearing all the confusion and having some long term customers leave screaming, vowing never to return again. But Alwin says he's happy with the situation after considering the overall online feedback and _sales_. So if this works out from their perspective it's a pretty decent payment model for everyone concerned.
