    Anyone seen Cybes lately ?

    5 weeks... but on a similar note, HTF do we get the users list? I only found his profile by visiting the rep leaderboard.

    Back in Shakespeare's day there weren't even women performers - they were portrayed by men wearing makeup. It was only with the accession of Charles II in 1660 that the position changed. (NFI what they did WRT portaying kids, or maybe they never had written parts)

    What a joke

    Honeysuckle Creek received the transmission, or at least the important part. And for all it's effort, nothing there other than evidence of buildings that once existed and a poxy little plaque. https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Honeysuckle+Campground/@-35.5830175,148.9753833,17.5z/data=!4m18!1m9!3m8!1s0x6b17d22434c37b1d:0x99b660fc279a072e!2sHoneysuckle+Campground!5m2!4m1!1i2!8m2!3d-35.5829486!4d148.9749981!3m7!1s0x6b17d22434c37b1d:0x99b660fc279a072e!5m2!4m1!1i2!8m2!3d-35.5829486!4d148.9749981

    That's in reference to a moon mission. Sort of funny - 50 years ago it was almost leading edge to get that shitty SSTV 140 scanline or whatever it was picture, which was converted by putting a TV camera in front of a monitor. In the modern day we should manage somewhat better.

    What a joke

    Land based radio is the only firm guarantee to stay in contact. Comms to satellites can be jammed, overridden etc. Though in this day I reckon a combination of physical layer elements might be best, and just dynamically switch to the path with the least lag and interference.

    Good thing Greg Ritchie isn't a politician, otherwise he'd be crucified for all those years as Mahatma Coat (and I believe probably overlapped this period too).

    What's on your mind?

    There was a story on the news about pedestrian zombies and their phones. Plenty of footage of near misses. I went through the Canberra Centre shopping centre earlier (walking) - it's just as fucking bad trying to walk from A to B with these ignorant morons everywhere. And they think they're doing a favour by stopping? Usually when they stop to take a call, it's in a doorway or middle of somewhere that you need to traverse. We need to follow the lead of Hawaii (I think that's who it was) - start handing out tickets to people who cross the road while using their phone. That said though, the ones with headphones and earphones are almost as bad, and the ones who drive that way probably worse.

    Hey guys!! Whats your goal in the near future..

    The sad fact is that's how a lot of "talent" in pop music emerges these days. The pub band died in the 1990s. It's been manufactured artificial talent since even before then. Kylie Minogue to a fair extent, Spice Girls, plenty of the boy bands and plenty of others. To add insult to injury there's the autotune and other synthetic effects - no need to guess too hard why most of them rarely appear live and often when they do it's a mime show.

    Welcome to the age of victim entitlement. The socialist driven system where the amount you're entitled to is inversely proportional to the amount of effort you've put in.

    Could the Democrats please wake up ?

    That's the whole essensce of Communism though - a system where 99.9% of the population live in an equal peasantry situation and the other 0.1% enjoy the fruits of someone elses (slave) labour.

    That's sad... they're a legendary band, one of my favourites of the time.

    Whats everyones favourite movie and why??

    I need to catch up on Tarantino's recent stuff - so there might be an additional one or two I could add. Suppose I should add a few Bond movies - it always comes back to the 60s-70s classics though like Diamonds are Forever, Goldfinger and The Spy who Loved me.

    Whats everyones favourite movie and why??

    Can't really name one. I'm not into movies in a big way but some I've found have repeat value so would be on the shortlist: Mad Max 2, Star Wars IV - probably seen these more than any other movie. Star Wars V though I'd rate slightly higher. The Great Escape - plenty of war movies I like but probably the favourite, helped by the ensemble cast. Star Trek 8: First Contact, ST 6: Undiscovered Country, ST 2: Wrath of Khan - hard to seperate but probably in that order. Terminator 2, True Lies: Probably his best 2. Pulp Fiction - a bit tame compared to when it came out but groundbreaking, full of laughs and a great yarn. Forrest Gump - the mark of a great movie is being able to generate the same emotions after seeing it a dozen times, and this does it.

    Paul Cronin at 81 - most prominent roles being The Sullivans and Matlock Police. He was also president of the Brisbane Bears for 3 years. Danny Frawley at 56 a few days ago - long career with St Kilda AFL club and coach of Richmond from 2000-2004.
