Re: Question on an Outlook.com failure

I don't know Outlook.com, but with other mail programs I have noticed that if the message type is text it won't take attachments or fonts, but if the message type is HTML it will.

Re: Extant - Eps 9 and 10

Weren't these last two episodes billed as the season finale? And then suddenly two more episodes next week as the finale?

Not to my knowledge. But, if I recall correctly, after the second episode last Wednesday it was announced two [more]

Re: Intruders Ep1

I think I lasted about 10 minutes before deleting it from the DVR. That was a far contrast to the Doctor Who premiere that immediately preceded it, and they seem to know how to tell a compelling, non-boring story in the Doctor Who reboot (the [more]

Re: The Cartoonization of Movies

I'm glad they are spreading out to include different heroes rather than going through yet another origins movie of Superman, another origins of Spider-man, multiple origins of Planet of the Apes.

First Settlement Check

My first annual PROSPER CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT check arrived last night for $3.62. (Mother would tell me to not spend it all in one place!) :)

So if you get an envelope claiming to be from PROSPER CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT, open it!

Re: The Strain 081014

In Germany, at least (I didn't check the others), swastikas aren't illegal in all case. They're really only illegal if being used to promote, essentially, the Nazis or their propaganda. They can be used for historical/educational [more]

Re: The Strain 081014

Re: Any Sci-Fi-ish suggestions?

For older Sci-Fi shows that you may find on Netflix disc ...

I loved Babylon 5. Netflix appears to have all 5 seasons on DVD. It's a good chunk sci-fi, some fantasy, and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Each season seems to have a [more]

Re: And I haven't even gotten around to watching

Normally I don't care for SyFy's monster of the week, but I actually did enjoy Sharknado (and Ghost Shark) ... at about 3.5 stars on the Netflix 5-star scale, and then I could relate (and enjoy) Jay Leno's spoof: Chinnado.

Re: Big Trouble in Little China

Right now "Big Trouble in Little China" is available on Netflix by streaming, DVD, and Blu-ray. I also strongly recommend this movie. On the Netflix 5-star scale, I gave this fantasy action comedy 5 stars.

Re: Roku

It does make more sense to get a new 32" though. You mention the 720p rather than a 1080p but is there is a reason why not the 1080p?
