Dark City is the movie your thinking of, a very good movie even now, go rent it if you havent see it.Directors cut coming out in 2006, according to Ebert in this "Great Movies" article... SPOILER WARNING
I believe more than ever that "Dark City" is one of the great modern films. It preceded "The Matrix" by a year (both films used a few of the same sets in Australia), and on a smaller budget, with special effects that owe as much to imagination as to technology, did what "The Matrix" wanted to do, earlier and with more feeling.
Sounds like a hell of a risk to me. And a lawsuit from a former employer just waiting to happen...It absolutely is. I know of one company in my area who lost some developers to a direct competitor who made highly similar products. They went after this smaller shop pretty hard; at one point the CEO was making moves to buy the shop just to fire all the folks who absconded there.
Ugh. Tom Brady must be pretty pissed off at his defense by now.That Int in the 2nd quarter looked well timed. After a little stall by the pats offense, they managed to turn off that particular Colts charge.
We'll still probably win the Super Bowl, regardless.Something I've wondered about. Pats are now 4-4. How many .500 teams have gone on to the superbowl? Wish there was an easy way to find that out. <shrug>
One of the guys fell off the face of the planet...If you're talking about ex-cop Rich Laporte, I believe he had some severe health issues due to lingering effects from the gunshot wound that led to his retirement and he had to give the website up.
My advice to game programmers: You should know what your company's legal agreements allow and don't allow. Use your own judgment and be careful.It's a tangent (wild tangent? - er, never mind that), but he's absolutely right. You could get your ass handed to you. A company might not be able to enforce those "non-compete" clauses, but they sure as hell could get the state to enforce the "no theft of IP" laws.
Btw, is anyone else looking at tomorrow's games as "Meh, whatever" and just focussing on Monday? Has to be one of the biggest regular season games in a long time.Hard to say. Positionally, there may not be the drama/history in the MNF game, but as far as hard fought games go, I think there will be some decent games.
Hmmm...and how much will this run?Yeah. if it was timed better, be a great way to set up some christmas gifting. :-) Distributed on DVD is a selling point regardless of game, but adding the XP support (with multi, I hesitate to infer) is goodness. Those should run like snot on today's gear.
Guess the 'Canadian Tire guy and his wife' are from some recent commercials? I don't 'get' to watch commercials no mo...Yeah, it's been their running campaign for the last few years. If you haven't seen 'em, you won't get it.
