Comment GoWatchit.com is just such a service (Score 2, Informative) 96

I've been trying out http://gowatchit.com/ . It allows you to set up a queue of desired movies and then alerts you when a movie is available to stream on a selection of feeds. My only complaint is that I've not found a way to distinguish between free (to me) and paid available sources.

Comment Author discusses source material in lulu preview (Score 4, Interesting) 260

On page 12 of the Lulu scan, the author discusses the relation of his book to "Calculus: Early Transcendentals" and explains that he is attempting to provide an alternate which exactly follows the topics and formats of the original so that students can us it as a less-costly substitute. I didn't go beyond that so maybe it's a scan, but the author does address the issue.

Sorry for the latency of the reply. My comment Karma ran out. I looked at long lists of Angel Clubs, but when that's when my insecurities regarding the execution of of the business kicks in. I really need a business guy/partner to carry this forward. Someone that would be comfortable with this phase of the start-up. I have what I think is a solid business plan and a strong patent on a novel technology, but frankly, I'm not the business guy to carry it off.

Ask your tech guy about the accuracy you can get from phase interferometry. I think the 3D motion guys will be very interested, since this is highly accurate, is wearable and not studio bound, and is cheap. But I'm aiming at the development of a mass market. I want this to become just a high end peripheral input device and open up broad new applications markets at the consumer level. I'd practically give the technology to the studios, just for the exposure and development.

I have been doing just as you suggested. The problem, beside our shit economy, is finding the juxtaposition of talent, interest and availability. Most have the interest, it's a pretty cool idea, but most don't have the availability or want to get involved at this very early, risky stage.

Oddly enough, although I don't know Bunny. I'm been keeping up with him over the years. As the software architect for the xbox manufacturing software, I was deeply involved in XBox security and read, with admiration, the process of this analysis of necessary security approaches and possible weaknesses.. Since I've also spent a lot of time in the Chinese manufacturing sector, I could also sympathize with his experiences. He would be a wonderful guy to work with, but I don't think this is his kind of project. What a nice thought, though. ---- Dennis
