Re: Tolkien Movie.

I, too, am confused by Colector's comment. I have no idea what "Tolkien moving" means. The trailer looks pretty meaningless. "It's about adventure... it's about love... it's about fellowship." Gee, how deep. Almost any adventure story features some kind of fellowship (just think of any D&D parties, ...

Re: Plastics! Plastics plastics plastics...

Hmm. Recycling-wise, I suppose we're one-up on the USA: as well as the bins for garbage, we have three separate recycling bins: one for garden waste (leaves, deadwood and so on), one for paper/cardboard, and one for "all other" (i.e. plastic, etc.) I presume it's a good system - I don't know how it ...

Re: So... some illogical things about LSL7...

Gee. Magical leisure suits! :lol:

How does he keep them clean? Or maybe I'm wrong in trying to apply logic to LSL? :lol:

Give him another two arms and make him non-glowing, and he could be Goro. :P

Hmm. I can see your points, bob, and they're good points. :) I remember you said you were a chemist, so I'm sure you know all about this topic - much more so than laypeople, like me. :) I'm not sure what you mean by "single stream". :oops: Can you explain, please? Yes, it's true that there are no ea...

Re: So... some illogical things about LSL7...

If it's the Big Gulp in LSL2, then yes. Larry's suit becomes a Tardis - bigger inside than out. :P But the question remains, where does Larry get all those extra suits from? Where are they hiding? ;) LSL6 answered that question (the closet in his room had "complementary leisure suits!"), but in LSL7...

Re: Design A Sierra Game.

Use: complete the sheet of music (using your knowledge of the "Duelling Banjos" theme). Give the sheet to a bard. He is so overwhelmed with gratitude that he gives you his latest song.

Inventory: bard's song, which begins with comparing a lady to a day in summer.

Re: The "MS Paint Your Favourite Games" Game

I can't draw, but here's one I - er, Sierra - created earlier. (I'm just taking credit for the idea).

Plastics! Plastics plastics plastics...

So a few months ago, the local supermarkets got rid of all plastic bags, on the grounds that they were pollutants and got into the rivers and seas and creeks, and killed wildlife and so on. I've no objection to that. But this morning, I forgot my fabric bag at home and had to carry some heavy things...

Re: Les Manley 1: Search for the King.

I've heard of Les Manley before, but never played it - it just wouldn't run for me. :( I've had a look at what it's about, and it sounds interesting. Is it available somewhere (legally, of course)? Neither GOG nor Steam have it. I'm sure that abandonware sites would have it, but I don't want to brea...

The Hobbit Cartoon

I read "The Hobbit" when I was very young, and then again when I got older, and found new things to appreciate. I tried reading LOTR when I was younger and got lost. Then, after watching the first LOTR movie (FOTR), I went back and tried reading LOTR again, and this time, I understood it more and ap...

Re: We finally took a photo of a black hole

^ This! :D Thank you, DPX. Yes, I care very much about accuracy - perhaps it comes from my background in programming and network engineering, and my current vocation in accounts. If I got things wrong in programming, the program doesn't run; if I got it wrong in network engineering, the network fail...
