Did an achievement pop-up onscreen when they did it? If so, for how many points?

"Personally, I don't relish the thought of drunken flying bombs fishtailing around the night sky on weekends."
Indeed, which is why I shall design a range of cheap mobile SAM launchers to be deployed around your property ;) they will come with automatic and manual modes. The manual aiming mode can be linked to a smartphone of your choice...
So there's the possibility of alien life here on Earth? I presume a great number of scientists will descend on this lake with the intention of doing unspeakable experiments on these critters with absolutely no responsibility for what might happen to us?
If so, should I re-open my hardened bunker, dust off my baseball bat and prepare for the Zombie horde?
Cameron may have 'raised the bar' somewhat, but only in terms of filming techniques, the content and story of Avatar was weak.
I really hope Ridley Scott decides to direct this, few can match his attention to detail and the Alien storyline needs to be respected... and by that I mean Alien and Aliens, not the crap that was made after them...
Perhaps they should join forces... after all it was Cameron who directed Aliens ;)
"Microsoft's chief executive Steve Ballmer told Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) attending their company's conference in Seattle, Washington that if they didn't move off Windows XP "they'd feel the wrath," according to attendees Twittering about the event."
'They'd feel the wrath'... Oh no, run for cover... Ballmer's going to throw a chair at us!!
I've had my Xbox 360 for almost 3 years, it's been scratching my game discs since the day I got it and not once have I moved it whilst a disc has been spinning in it. I complained to Microsoft and got their standard 'Moving it will scratch discs' response... their tech support person refused to comment on me explaining that I had an original Xbox sat next to my Xbox 360 and it has *never* scratched a disc, bottom-line - Microsoft refused to do anything about it.
I have to say though that not all my game discs get scratched as it has a lot to do with the type of game, for instance games that required lots of preloading such as Oblivion or Bioshock means that the disc spins more frequently increasing the probability of a disc getting scratched.
All I do now is resurface a disc when I get a 'disc unreadable' error and when the extended warranty runs out I shall take it apart, remove the drive and either fix it by placing some foam pads on the underside of the drive bay (which will prevent the disc from 'tilting' towards the laser assembly) or replace it with one that has been properly treated (as the ones in the early XBox 360's should have been).
