But if we apply betteridges law of headlines - then surely the answer is no?
Its also too cheesy - whats all that crap with the new assistant and souffle ? Rory was the equivalent of Jar Jar binks. Stuff like that spoils it too.
I too prefer the original series but it wasnt all marvelous - there are a few stories that drag on. I've been watching Dr Who from the very beginning and after William Hartnell's (The original doctor) dreadful acting and some truely ludicrous storylines - i am amazed the show succeeded the way it has. IMHO the show peaked around the Tom Baker , Peter Davison years (for many of the reasons in the parent post) and basically went downhill after that . Remember Liquorice Allsort man , Bonnie Langford - In retrtospect Sylvester McCoy might not have been a bad choice but he didnt have the backup he deserved. Its as if they were deliberately trying to kill the show! Zip into the future - The new series has had its fair share of lame stories and cheesy adversaries - Its too early to say if David Tennant was where the show peaked but for now he has my vote! Overall I think the show needs to go back to its roots, BBC Quarry and all!
Are you hoping that the word "goatsean" enters the dictionary? Id love to see the explanation!
If i had mod points i would totally mod you up!
Of course its about the music - if you are listening really for encoding artifacts how can you be listening to the song?
How did you get your APD diagnosed? I live in the UK and the standard NHS hearing test of varying tones at different volumes showed that i have normal hearing.
However - i constantly find myself mishearing words or combinations of words (usually as ludicrous combination that makes not sense). Is there a fix for this or is it just a case of learning to cope?
My MidiSport X2 midi interface - just plugs into my ubuntu Box and "Just Works"(tm) . OSX wont recognise it , there are no drivers for Mountain Lion nor are there likely to be - even though there are clearly open source ones out there that work just fine on Linux.
My Keyboard and mouse (non apple variety) keymaps are all wrong, there are no drivers for OSX, various hacks and 3rd party programs have not got the keymap right at all various characters like backslash and tilda (things i use A lot) are in the wrong place. even a mac guru friend of mine could not get them to work.
cant write to NTFS external USB drives by default on OSX third party fix for this is hacky and buggy. iTunes wipes my iPod as the tunes i had on there i ripped on Linux and copied to the iPod from rhythmbox.
The one thing that amazed me about OSX is that you still need to install drivers for things - i thought (mistakenly) that it would be like Linux in this regard - most things work without the need to install extra drivers. I get told "Your not doing it right" WTF?
I bought a mac in october last year I was expecting the world and maybe even to the point where it might become my main OS but in all honesty Im really dissappointed with it. So it sits there - occasionally i fire it up to test a website.
For me the "Just Works" trophy goes to ubuntu and not OSX.
What on earth do you mean by (when referring to Linux) . "It requires too much overhead to install software" ? Im inclined to think its been a long way since you tried using linux or you have been using some old / obscure distro. cus for the most part (and im referring mainly to debian based distributions here). There is no operating system that i have seen that has a package management system that comes anywhere close to what we have on linux. I honestly cannot remember last time i encountered dependency issues (back in the early noughties sometime maybe?). You can groan about anything you like regarding linux but the one thing that really shines out there is package management.
disclaimer : Other people have preferences such as RPM (which i hate), BSD's ports system , gentoo's portage etc. - I speak generally about debian / apt-get as its a long time since i used others as described above - i Imagine they are all pretty mature nowadays.
Gender equality is one thing - but he is still enforcing stereotypical gender roles with the pink handbags and brollies!
