A big part of any Star Trek series is the captain. Kirk, Picard, Sisko, & Janeway all had some serious cahones. Archer is just a whiny little bitch. Every time I see him on screen I want to slap him.

And what exactly is up with the Vulcans? I thought they suppress thier emotions? So why is it that they always seen like they're pissed off? T-Pol isn't repressed, she's just on the rag 24/7. And that 'bitch in heat' episode? WTF was that?

Also, some of the coolest stuff in ST is the technology, so why would we want to go BACKWARDS in this regard? Chemical-propelled torpedoes? On a ship with impulse and warp drives... Riiiiight.

The biggest mistake was trying to make Star Trek to appeal to the mainstream audiences. It's the the nerdy kid in school trying to suddenly be cool and popular. You can tell when someone is trying to hard to be something that they're not.

I'm done now.

The strange thing about this story, was the fact that another worker found the guy, and sounded the alarm, but the trapped miner didn't want to wait for help and elected (that's right, ELECTED) to amputate his own arm.

What the hell? Is this some kind of copycat phenomonon? Is this the new test of manliness or something? Yeesh!

Legally, you're probably going to spend more suing him that you'll get, unless his name is on your lease.

Agreed. You'd get more satisfaction by paying some meathead to take it out of his hide.

The gaming OS idea is really a non-issue. Once upon a time when RAM and processor speed was at a premium I could see it having had been useful, but now that systems are capable of loading the OS AND a game into memory, the only benefit one might expect would be a faster boot-up time. Once things are loaded there really isn't that much load on a system when the OS is idling. (i.e. when you are playing a game)

Say it with me: GIF is CRAP! How this writer can imagine that GIF will become the new standard in web graphics is beyond my comprehension. Patent or no patent, the GIF format is finished.

256 colours just don't cut it for most graphical applications no mo'.

That is a wonderful ad - every time I see it I wonder how many takes it took as I couldn't see any evidence it was editted do together. Very impressive stuff, although the actual number of takes is more suited to a Peugot ad

When I saw it the first time, I just naturally assumed it was special effects. I'm sure a lot of others did too.

Now I'm impressed!

What's the deal with with these game reviews of ancient releases like Splinter Cell or C&C Generals? Anything important that needed to be said has been said umpteen times already.

Quit shopping the Bargain Bin. Sheesh!

If you need software rendering, you should consider a new hobby.

If you don't own a 3D card in this day and age, odds are your computer won't even run UT. The only people I could see benefiting from this might be some laptop owners.

>That is a ridiculous waste of resources.

You're not kidding! And that's not even considering all the extra (mostly non-renewable) energy needed to transport the product to the store shelves, and then the last mile into the home (probably via monster SUV).

It amazes me that with all the environmental awareness people have today, products so obviously wasteful continue to make their way to market. There ought to be a law.

I agree that most of the crap people are peddling as art is total crap, but the blame for this lies not with the individual artist, but with the people that consume the crap. You can't blame someone for filling a demand.

In my younger years I spent many mental processing cycles trying to come up with a definition of what actually constituted 'art'. The best I could come up with was this: Anything that communicated a thought, feeling or idea more efficiently and effectively that it could be expressed via another medium was art.

Of course, this definition still means that what is or isn't considered 'art' is still highly subjective, but that is the nature of art; one mans 'art' is another man's trash.

because I am so damn uncreative (is that a word) I need some help.. my girlfriend graduated from Teacher's College.. and I can't think of a decent present to buy her for it... a watch, ring, jewlery is kinda boring... I was thikning of something like a DVD player, but she probably won't use it.. she has a TV.. she has a l33t computer (courtesy of me)... got any ideas?].
Get her a digital camera.

.. she got into RCMP (federal police for Canada aka a Mountie) .. so I was thinking about maybe getting her something for her RCMP training..

Cool, this is also what I'm working towards. How long did it take her to complete the application process?

It probably plays like crap, being that it has the AMD label on it.

Oh it probably plays alright, just really, REALLY hot.

Anzac Day is a day to honor New Zealanders killed in war and to honour returned servicemen and women.
Australia also does something similar to this.

Close. I'll let an Australian explain it.

It's Anzac Day, 25th April. Anzac day in Australia is the most solemn National Day of the year. We don't celebrate victory or revolution or independence. We celebrate a tragic defeat in 1915 of the Australian New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) by the Turks at Gallipoli in Turkey. At dawn this morning, all over Australia, old soldiers and other service people marched to War Memorials. To the sound of bugles playing 'The Last Post', marchers, families and friends reverently remembered the fallen in all the wars in which Australia has participated.

It's also the only day in Australia where it's legal to play a gambling game called 'two-up' which involves tossing two coins and betting on the results. I guess it was a popular passtime of the troops, back in the day.

Ya know... if they would price cd's at a decent price, i bet they would sell more of them, and on-line theft would drop. Think about it, the price of a cd hasn't changed much from when they made their debut back in the late 80's. (paid 21 for my first cd Siouxsie and the Banshees Cities In The Dust) I haven't purchased a new cd in quite sometime but I think they are like 15-18 dollars now a days? I can usually buy a used cd for 8-10 (if not cheaper)that is slightly abused. If the record companies really want to bug someone they should leave napster alone and go after all those companies that sell used cd's

Don't give them any ideas...

If they'd just get witht the program, and start selling single tracks online (and for a reasonable amount of money) they'd find out what the rest of us know: many people download songs because they're unwilling to spend $15-$20 for a whole CD, just to get the one or two songs that are actually worth anything.

I'm surprised that consumer protection groups aren't getting involved, since I can think of no other industry where it's acceptable to sell a product that is 70-80% defective.
