Re: French Cinema

Surely dubbed TV adaptations can't be discussed without mentioning The Flashing Blade !

London Boroughs of Havering and Barking both seem to suffer with the installation of an excessive number of huge speed bumps. I'm sure a little forethought and some of the tarmac used for these could have been applied to the increasingly numerous and dangerous potholes on those routes.

If you're going to do a Richard K. Morgan book, it has to be Altered Carbon ;-)

Re: Ticket less entry

This is ok but presupposes I'm buying a ticket for myself. What if I'm purchasing the ticket for someone else as a gift, which is something I do frequently ? The reseller needs to ensure that this is catered for as an option at the point of sale.

Obvious Answer

The answer to this entire conundrum is patently obvious. Announce the tickets and then auction them off over a set period. The tickets will find their way into the hands of the fans and find their true market value.

I've long held the belief that despite the fact all these web technologies have been around for a long time now, they've truly lost sight of what they're trying to achieve. I'm currently writing a web tool using Django, jQuery and javascript and I'm incredulous that these languages have to couple themselves so tightly. I'm not a Web developer by any means, and this is only the 3rd time in 30 years I've dabbled, but things have certainly not improved adequately in that time.

A complete rethink is required. We should know where all the pitfalls are and be able to come up with a set of useful, all-encompassing requirements.

Read a lot of her works. A very fine author. I had no idea she was so advanced in years. Grass was indeed an epic, with a wonderful twist.
