Know any women who read comics? Shit! I hardly know any PEOPLE who read comics. Computer Geeks, yes. Vinyl Junkies, yes. Gamers, also yes. But I am pretty much the only reader of comics in my group of friends. Mrs Tweak is closest as she is a childrens illustrator by trade so she appreciates comics but rarely reads them

I gots Halo (PC) and I do like it might load it up this evening. I run XP so I have not been able to run Halo 2 (a fcuking piece of shit marketing ploy on Microsofts part. I will NOT get Vista). I did think that Halo is a slower paced game on the PC (FPS are generally quicker on PC) and wish that they thought to speed up the Master Chiefs movement as it is an arse on hardest.

Mrs Tweak (Professional Illustrator) made one out of and old draw
Step 1 find large old draw from chest of draws with thickish draw bottom
Step 2 take bottom out leaving frame intact and measure it
step 3 affix light fitting to inside of box (any type of small strip light will do)and wire in appropriate cable/plug
Step 4 get pain of glass of appropriate thickness cut to same size as draw bottom
Step 5 slide glass in to grooves for draw bottom

Optional extra: you can get a sheet of lighting frost (for theatre lighting) and cut it to the same size as the glass so you have an opaque surface. if there is a theatre near you there will likely be some where that would sell that kind of thing

costs = the light fitting, cable, plug and the glass less then £30
Old draw = free if you know where to look

As Jim has quite rightly said the important part to remeber when sending this kind of letter is
"If you have a postal address, I would suggest both an e-mail and a letter by Recorded Delivery."
You can, with this, then have evidence accepted in court of where the letter has been and who it was delivered too. It may cost more than a first class stamp but the excuse "Lost in the Post" becomes mute.

Any and all boarders have my greatest sympathy on this. Comic IP issues after a problem like this can be notoriously difficult to resolve. Even if the company end is not run by the kind of person Jim has described. (Grendel took years to sort out for example). Fingers crossed for all.

Off Topic / Re: Well, That Raoul Moat chap buggered my hometown

Raoul Moat wanted to die there is no question of that. I don't think Raoul Moat so much got what he deserves but he did get what he wanted after what he did.

And he'd asked for help, it seems, but was ignored.

Mmm, well on that all I can say is asking for help and not getting it is possibly more of an issue then the Police involvement leading up to his death. I have had a hard time myself with trying to get help with emotional issues. As when you go to a doctor all you get is "here’s drugs, you might get to see someone in the next two years" any Psychological help such as counselling, I had to pay for to see someone sooner. When I did see someone (12 sessions CBT on the NHS) I then had to get a loan out to go further sessions.

But that is not the fault of the Police and just highlights the lack of help there is available out there.

If he asked for help when he was in prison then that would be need investigation and debate as the point where you ask for help is always the point where you should get it. And being in the care of the state at a point where you should be being rehabilitated and not getting help is a big problem.

Still, its no excuse for killing a man by shooting him in the back of the head though. Or blinding another man for life. Or shooting your ex girlfriend.

Casandra Rismiller, a friend of mine who co-starred in several of my short films, passed away last night. I got the stunning news this morning. She was a fun girl, a unique person and a very good actress. She was 27.

Here she is in action (the dark-haired girl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuNxWgBjx8E.
