Thankfully you have the option of watching it in 2D or 3D. I hate 3D. Looks like it's playing right around the ...

Peter Jackson’s ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Is a Stunning Tribute to World War I’s Heroes

They've digitally restored and colorized old film of actual fighting and soldiers on the front line from WWI. They digitally corrected for the jerky hand-cranked film, recreated voices and sound effects and interleaved it all with interviews of actual WWI veterans. I got a tear in my eye just watchi...

PewDiePie printer hackers strike again

Seriously, you'd have to WORK AT IT to put a printer directly on the internet and bypass the NAT router. So I assume there are a but-load of IDIOT I.T. peeps out there who think it's a great idea to put an office printer on the WAN side. F'ing morons...

Glass (2019) - Official International Trailer UK

I'm looking forward to this. I haven't seen Split yet - it's on my watch list. M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone Pictures, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. From ...

Re: Authors I have enjoyed lately

Also just finished re-reading (after 30 years) James P. Hogan's "The Proteus Operation". A wonderful sci-fi classic that World War II aficionados will appreciate. It's 1975 and the Nazis never lost the war. Winston Churchill was never prime minister and England surrendered. The Nazis nuked...

Re: Authors I have enjoyed lately

I'm on the 3rd book of John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" series. Amazingly good - especially the first one. Old Man's war was actually his first book he ever wrote, and was nominated for a Hugo Award.

Interest Rates Rant

I've been saying for the past 2 years that the fed interest rate needs to go up. No one ever agrees with me. Homeowners worry about a high interest on mortgages and businesses love low interest loans. HOWEVER the problem is that interest rates have been TOO LOW since the late 1990 - and especially a...
