    Hmm found the date, only 2008. Not too bad.

    The iPAQ on the other hand. That's old.
    I think the card broke 2 years ago... not that old, old enough ;-)

    But to tell you how long I used cards like this: I just found a original copy of Baldur's Gate II!

    And to think that was only a 512mb card - my 2gb that turned up yesterday is smaller than that one.

    George Lucas is just a silly man. The old Star Wars movie only worked because he didn't have any money. Look at the "improved" versions now...

    Lucus is a 'rich' silly man. Also Star Wars is now in the hands of Disney. Oh well.

    Hes a genius in my eyes grew up with his films.

    And the Disney sale has a lot to do with his elitist neighbours - he wanted to expand LucasArts to start work on the new films but they all denied him planning permission every time he applied for it over many years. The first nail in the coffin for any future Lucas star wars films was all down to the snobbery of an upper class group that live near Skywalker Ranch.

    I love the fact Lucas eventually went and sold his land to the local authority for a rock bottom price to allow them to build affordable housing but ultimately it was the beginning of the end.

    He's taken a lot of slack from comedians and other pundits in the US about what he does. I never had any issue with him personally. Every interview I've seen with him he appeared to be a really nice guy.

    What sort of messed up the three new Star Wars movies, though I didn't mind the first one too much, was the acting. I think the original movies had a good class of actors.

    The second part of the hobbit looks as good as the first film and the third instalment is finished filming!

    I don't know anything about him personally. Let me rephrase: He loves to have tons of silly stuff in his movies. Jar Jar or C-3PO are only the most obvious ones.

    But then again, it is mostly personal taste. The older I get and the more Lucas adds badly animated aliens into the old movies, the less I care.

    Yeah I agree. There are lots of people out there still into Star Wars and other interesting characters. Lots of 'CONS' these days.

    Well getting closer to the end of the day for me and closer to my vacation! :D

    I'll leave you with a couple of pictures. Both taken with my N8.

    Here is a London picture. Slightly photoshoped.

    And this is sunrise over the Humber Estuary in North East England. I lived in a flat on the seaside for about 10 months.

    Promise them cake tomorrow if they do it right. Motivation.
    Just RUN!!!
    @BP, if I run, I'm running to the unemployment line...so I cannot do that.

    @N_LaRUE, they don't listen so that doesn't work.

    Half way through the day, it is a mini disaster. And of course it is raining outside. So, I'm gonna eat some Thai food for lunch and rest my eyes on the cute waitress there in order to deal with afternoon.

    Not sure if this is the right thread for this question, but....

    How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    Oh, wait, this is the PERFECT thread for that question.
