Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Yeah, same here.

    Often I'll face difficulty in being too cynical.

    I don't think so, apparently it's named that because "Everybody knows a bloke called Dave"

    I love Dara O'Briain. Easily my favourite comedian.

    I saw his new show live back in February. It was fantastic.

    However the maths show thingy he's doing right now on Dave? awful.

    My friend worked on that!

    I watched the first episode. The guest comic seemed to be either very uninterested or very nervous, which kind of put me off the show. Dara is plenty enthusiastic and obviously smart, but the format seemed a bit weak.

    My friend said he was great to work with but upon reflection seems to have been careful not to say if it was any good

    I started playing games on my budget laptop (no GFX card) and it makes the fan go craaaazy.

    How do those cooling pads work? Are they effective? Are they dear?

    I figure I could take a bear.
  • surrealitychecksurrealitycheck you must go on i cant go on ill go onRegistered User regular
    i once had an alienware laptop that broke precisely because of cooling problems, and i never actually got a cooling pad

    however, the tech support guys said i should have got one and they look cool :(

    ps posh buy a HUGE desktop the size of your HEAD

    They are more for your lap then the computer itself overall, they help but not that much IMO

    Can I be the antidote to that and say you are the very model of a modern major general here, and give the lie to all those hateful aspie stereotypes?

    good ones exist

    but they're hard to get

    look for: made of metal, elevated, multiple fans, lots of airspace, AC power options (especially if there is an attached USB hub). LED lights are a bad sign. ebay is ideal here.

    a friend I know had a honking huge four-fan montrosity for his 17" pentium 4 laptop, which overheated to exactly the extent you'd expect

    laptop cooling pads of that size no longer seem to exist though

    the one i was told to get for my alienware was a fucking beast

    what was funny is that they said every single model of that type needed one or they were basically unusable, which is hilarious

    if only i had bought it in the uk i could have hit them with "fit for purpose" :(

    (I have a laptop fan right now, one with a usb hub and a USB+12v DC power which I appropriated a BT modem's adapter for. I had a pile of previous ones which worked much worse though. My current laptop doesn't overheat but the pad makes the keyboard perceptibly cooler, which is nice.)

    John Carter's trailer was sadly generic.

    The Avengers has had five movies worth of hype hyping it up.

    I get the impression that producers have so little idea of what's good (c.f. Kevin Smith talking about his Superman script) that no-one is going to just say 'Avengers was a better film'.

    I figure I could take a bear.

    I watched the John Carter trailer and wondered if they were intending Conan The Barbarian meets Avatar meets Stargate.

  • ronyaronya Arrrrrrf. the ivory tower's basementRegistered User regular
    Some WSJ speculation suggesting he was fired more for fighting-with-Pixar reasons than John Carter, which he did not greenlight.

    What I really want to know is what the execs think, if they blame marketing then logically the next Disney superhero movie (Spiderman?) is going to have the mother of all ad campaigns, studios seem rather reactive that way. It changed a staggering loss to a staggering profit so it must work right?

    Spider-Man is a Sony picture, I believe.

    Warner Bros own DC, Disney own Marvel.

    Can't believe you would confuse the two. They're as different as Hawk & Dove, Cloak & Dagger, Power Man & Iron Fist.
