If I buy some thing outside the UK how does it work money wise ??? I know there are shipping fees, the usual p & p. But what about exchange rates and all that.

Also, what is the difference between lavender, purple , and violet ?

Why does this chair squeek ?

I'm in the mood for pickled onion Monster Munch.

Our £ is pretty much doubled in the USA for example. You can put on, or take off between £10-20. If you are unsure of the conversion rate just type it into Google my friend. Say, "20GPB in USD".

Lavender and violet are just different shades of purple, hence the names of the flowers also.

I recently replaced the ceiling in our bedroom with tongue & groove knotty pine paneling and replaced the wood moldings too. My wife decided to repaint the room, if I remember the paint names correctly, the walls are light salmon, wainscoating and ceiling are eggshell whitewash and the new molding is key lime pie green. All these colors go together better than I thought they would, but they're still pink, white and green to me.

At the moment the pound is sinking and I'm not sure I really can afford the $270.00 for the El' model. How often are the exchange rates done ? Bluesad

Why do people come up with names for different shades. Can't they just say "lighter purple, please."

What's the Difference between 1080i & 1080p ?

i=interlaced, p=progressive

Interlaced means that regarding the horizontal lines that make up the picture on the screen, every other line is drawn starting with the top line ending at the bottom, then the same is done with the remaining. Basically if you numbered the lines from top to bottom, the odd numbered lines are drawn in ascending order, then the even numbered lines.

Progressive means that each scan does EVERY line from top to bottom EVERY time.

This is my interpretation, I may be off to some degree, but I believe it is pretty close. Progressive is better in terms of picture quality.

I have a couple thoughts...

Am I the only one that hates when people record something off TV with a camcorder, and post it on YouTube?  It irritates me when I'm searching for a scene or something from a movie or show and I get this crap video of someone's telly, complete with scan lines and muffled sound, not to mention the recorder's mother in the background telling them dinner is ready. 

And the only thing that could possibly be worse or more idiotic?

Video taping a YouTube video and posting it on YouTube.  Behold!

Small | Large


For my second thought, I have to wonder why it is so many people still come into the store to look for outdated formats.  We still get people coming in and asking:

"Where are your VHS movies?"
"Do you guys carry cassette tapes?"

I even had someone ask me where our Nintendo 64 games were.  Nintendo 64.  Come on, now!  When I told them that Nintendo no longer makes N64 games, they gave me a look of complete incredulity.

People who do this should be drug out to the street and shot IMHO.  Thank you for bringing this up by the way.

I hate these also, but, I did get a bit of a laugh out of one. It was some hillbilly and his kid sitting down to watch the Urijah Faber / Mike Brown fight. They were obviously Faber fans who were suddenly silenced when he got knocked the hell out just a couple minutes into the fight. Their buildup and reaction was great.

I have found a new fear while surfing IMDb: that one day I will click on one the many movies that the Bottom 100 has to offer, click on said movie's Film Connections, and see "Remade As" at the very top.  Sure, this has happened before, but can you imagine:

"Michael Bay presents a Paul WS Anderson film: Manos, Hands of Fate, starring Dwayne Johnson."

My parents have been in Tahiti for the past week, and so I'm in charge here at the house.

And doing laundry for myself and my sister, it occurred to me...we males have it good.

I can do everything I wear in one or two loads, everything from boxers to jeans jumbled together in the washing machine, and it all comes out clean and undamaged.

My sister's clothes have worked out to four loads so far, and everything she wears needs to be washed special and massaged between loads. 

I love being male.

I feel like a right tart reading that. I don't have a washing machine, so I have to hand wash all my clothes and do nearly everything seperate. I have lots of brightly coloured shirts and vintage clothes, so they need washing carefully.  Smile
