On a Troll Bridge note, I hope none of you lot are:
dicconf <dicconf@radix.net>

This person sent a slightly...snide email reply from Wossnames (Daniel, there we go) latest update email.
Which went to a few hundered people too, as they CC'd it to the entire mailing list.

Not only that, but this person showed themselves to be slightly dim-witted (by the CC'ing), short tempered (swearing) and possibly retarded by complaining about not being able to find the 'log in' section.


Why don't people just...actually...*look* for things, I am sure that most people who went to the members section realised that they were prompted for a username and password when they tried to view members-only material.....

Gnah, silly person.


</rant>


:!:


(Or maybe I just read the e-mail wrong....with the wrong tones....but I doubt it :D)

Indeed. Just when you think maybe there is hope for the human race, someone like that comes to your notice. A classic example of "Pack up the keyboard, monitor & base unit and take it back to the shop. Tell them I said you're too stupid to be allowed to own a computer."

Adrian and I were sat in the front of the auditorium in Boston for Pterry's talk. As he was walking past (we waited as we wern't in a rush to run over people's feet{wheelchair} in the crush at the door) Troll bridge started.

He sat down as he'd wanted to see the 'making of' too.

Oddly enough his comments were almost the same - pity about Kev not being in the right place - and how on the disc do they get these effects from such a small budget?

I guess he'd probably not be upset by merchandising helping these film guys out
