The same thing happens to me when I go to poland, I try to drive reasonably, but there are people passing me doing twice the speed limit, on some shitty road that has a memorial ever 50 feet on the side of it because people keep killing themselves. I've seen wider alleys in Chicago that some of the roads in Europe, I'm sorry but it is a travesty for country roads to not be wide enough for two cars going the opposite way. If I'm driving and someone is coming in my direction we should not have to both slow down to a crawl and both almost drive into ditches to pass each other.

You think this is a tech issue, it's not, it's a corporate one. Some one at apple realized that the numbers of people using their service were a little low, so they told the SIRI team to adjust her to focus people to their service. They don't give a shit if peoples questions are answered or not, they only care that people are using their software.

It doesn't work. D&D is all about making your own experience, it just like how almost every video game movie sucks. You could in theory make a good movie that is set in the D&D universe but you need a $100 million dollar budget and someone like Peter Jackson to make it. This will never happen, it will have a piddly budget, and some no name director, I actually believe that Vin Diesel would be a good director for this movie, since he has been a big D&D guy for years. The best D&D cross over to video that I've seen is actually the Futurama episidoe Benders Game.

Way 1: Don't resolve the main plot in the pilot. Basically, they'd need to stretch the entire move out over a 3-5 season arc, more like Babylon-5 than like Trek. A lot of modern shows are doing this. The only issue is that it tends to make the series feel really slow and boring if you don't throw some other little things in there to resolve. There's only so much foreplay a guy will sit through...

I take it you didn't watch any of the DS9, especially the later season, I'll argue that it was the best written Trek series.
