    Disney plans to remake Home Alone

    It’s a way for Disney to exploit another kids childhood for the sake of entertainment. Good luck to the poor sods they choose!

    Brexit.

    His pride. I don’t think he would have stood for leader election if he didn’t want this and was willing to do what it takes to get his peerage, order of the garter and long term appreciation of his work as Prime Minister. Boris only does things for him. There is something we’re missing here. HE...

    Calling all Trump Supporters and MAGAs

    yup! You're way behind, which is the whole point of this sub conversation! We have all had to bite that bullet already, with major infrastructure changes to make moving forward more economical.

    Calling all Trump Supporters and MAGAs

    HD is the standard here (and in most place)... plus pretty high data allowances that don't interfere with tv watching. Making 16:9 content work for an out of date format is counter productive and costs way more - plus its a ball ache creatively making sure action cuts work and the content...

    Managing 2 different aspect ratios for new content when the rest of the world runs in HD 16:9 is bloody annoying!

    Considering we still have to deliver TV in standard definition 3:4 to the US, not very soon!

    Brexit.

    Brexit is falling apart because a referendum should never have been considered in the first place! Nor the result used as a bible with which to bash people with. Politicans have always been incompetent, especially when using referenda to weasel out of making decisions for themselves.

    hbo Yay! His Dark Materials -- BBC and HBO release teaser for new multi-series adaptation of Philip Pullman fantasy classic trilogy

    I work with the guy who directed the animation for all the demons. He was on set with the actors and drawing out the action of the demons on top of the takes to give the actors and director immediate feedback. He was using his ipad. Seeing some of his work has been great.

    What SL Features Would You Like To See Added?

    It works if you have group access to the 0,0,0 origin too. So mainland is a problem. Rental estates can always parcel off that small section and add to a common land group so it will work for renters.

    Social Cooling - and the long-term effects it might have.

    There is no legal reason not to impose a minimum spend on card payments. However it does go against a few of the contracts the payment companies (especially mastercard and VIsa) have with the merchant. It's not really in the best interest of the shop to impose a minimum spend and only have card...

    Social Cooling - and the long-term effects it might have.

    They're legally not allowed to do that here now. They're not allowed to add the card transaction cost to the price of the goods. All transaction charges and cash costs need to be included as a cost of doing business.
