Hard Time on Planet Earth?

Martin Kove I think played the main guy.

Maybe they should have a Panini-style Name and Shame Sticker book.

When the police asked for this extension after detaining an 80 year-old under the Terrorism Act it felt like a drunk driver asking for a Lamborghini.

I thought they might do this, but I dismissed it as low even for them.

Looks like I was wrong.

I thought The Pit had some of the most variable Dredd art.

I just wish Carlos had been able to do the whole lot.

Riot Foam!

Stumm Gas!

I think cruise ships should carry 30ft robot sharks that they can deploy.

I'd imagine that Guthrie would have been prime suspect in any blockages. He just looks like that sort of guy.

Yeah, sorry - some TFTs have component inputs as well (Dell for example) which would be a doddle to connect, but the Apple ones are pretty minimalist when it comes to video inputs it seems.

does the display have component inputs? (They are 3 phono inputs, one red, one green, one blue)

If you've got one of these then you might be able to use a component lead to connect the two.


Only seems to list DVI however, which makes it trickier. You can buy a component lead, then buy a component to VGA adapter, but they are about ?40, and then convert that to DVI. I think that's the only way it could be done, sadly.



DVI to VGA adaptors usually come with most LCD monitors. A DVI socket can carry both analogue and digital signals, so it should be able to carry the analogue VGA signals through an adaptor into the monitor.

The main problem is there is no guarantee that it would work, it depends whether the apple display can handle what the box is converting to.

Sorry it's so complicated, but that's technology for you...

Off Topic / Sun Editor arrested

From the mediaguardian site.

"Rebekah Wade, editor of the Sun, has been arrested for an alleged assault on her husband, the EastEnders actor Ross Kemp.

Ms Wade remains in custody at a police station in south London following a dispute at the couple's home in Battersea in the early hours of the morning."

Can't help thinking of his appearance in "Extras"

That would be an ace halloween costume.

I remember an episode of Star Trek really freaking me out when I was a kid (Charlie X blanking someones face)...

Actually we had some pretty nasty orange curtains, I seem to remember those combined with Bohemian Rhapsody giving me nightmares when I was a kid.

More a "still scares me..."

Cars, or more specifically driving them - the thought of freezing while at the control of a ton of  speeding metal doesn't fill me with happy thoughts.

I used to be a very nervy passenger,  but these days I always seem to fall asleep very easily in a car. Odd.

Or though having seen the way some people drive round here, maybe not so irrational.

Although I did have nightmares about nature being consumed by heavy machinery when I was a kid, so something like a printing press freaks me out a bit.
