Comment Re:TRON is about the world inside of the computer (Score 1) 429

People should check out a series of "prequel" comics that came out a while before the movie. They go into the ISO thing in more depth, and also the turning of Tron into a bad guy. Although they really should have put this sort of stuff IN the bloody movie, rather than making us search out the stuff.

Comment Re:And no one cared (Score 1) 124

I've found one thing that Bing does better than Google, image searches. I was trying to find a picture that someone in a forum had described (but couldn't find) and I tried looking for it with Google. No dice, a ton of unrelated stuff as usual. Then, just for the halibut, I tried Bing. Came up on the first page. After that I've tried it with various other image searches, and Bing always came through. For any other types of searching though, Google is usually better.

PLEASE tell me you aren't in Pennsylvania! I've often sent people to the Micro Center store in Radnor, because they have people who actually know what they're talking about (or know where to find someone who knows, if it's something beyond them). I'd hate to think they're going the way of CompUSA. When I had to ask questions there, I started to wonder if these people had ever SEEN a computer!

Russia? You're right though, it does. I wonder why the URL in the link lists Bethesda Maryland? I recall seeing a recent program on the History Channel that pointed out a probable impact crater, I believe around the Chesapeake Bay, and that the after effects of the impact lead to the extinction of the large mammals that used to roam North America (giant sloths, saber-toothed cats, mammoths, etc,).
