DVDs, computers, compatability, etc

Name: DTS Source: unca20100401.htm CHARLIE: We've had three PCs (bought in the U.S.) which we used to try and play DVDs on a few times. The one thing _I_ learned, which were lessons garnared from personal experience --but maybe Samuel Klein knows something I don't -- is this: the PCs WILL let you p...

BEN W's post and "The Shadow"

Name: DTS Source: unca20100401.htm BEN: I've bored myself (and a few others) on here with the reasons that I type DTS instead of my full name. There are enough people on here who know the full name to verify my annoying existence (not the least of them being Harlan and Susan, who have suffered my "...

Actors and heroes (which are sometimes interchangeable)

Name: DTS Source: unca20100401.htm ROB: About a week ago, amidst a discussion on another topic you mentioned firemen and heroism in the same sentence. I've been interested in the topic of heroism of late, after reading Straczynski's Brave & Bold comics. All Firemen are NOT heroes. I learned that fo...

Harlan's Complaint and immunizations in the USA, etc

Name: DTS Source: unca20100401.htm HARLAN: My daughter recently figured out that she had an intolerance to gluten -- not as severe an allergy as some, but still, a bad thing to have -- so she moved away from foods with gluten. Voila, no more problems. Just curious: has the um, "Harlan's Complaint" ...

In my defense

Jack-booted thugs, part deux

Name: DTS Source: unca20100401.htm STEVE: Glad Gwyneth posted again, but _I_ had to do so as well to say: your post makes the same (sadly, not so well thought-out) mistake (in my opinion) that the ultra-right toadies on the ultra-right SF writer's forum made: they ASSUMED that something else must h...

Jack-booted thugs

I second that emotion

Name: DTS Source: unca20100219.htm Hey HARLAN: I second Shagin's emotion: Enjoyed the hell out of the new one. It's nice to read a morality tale which takes the intolerant crowd (which seems to grow larger by the day) to task -- not to mention the uninvolved (the sly references to semi-recent event...
