We have staff on extra alert for that. James Bond is a big risk and we will be working with cinema operators and the distributors making sure we will keep that as tight as possible.

If SMERSH and SPECTRE couldn't deal with Bond, how are these bozos going to accomplish anything?

While I was growing up in the 70s, I knocked a tooth out of a kid who was blowing up frogs with firecrackers.

But yeah, my friends and I carried pocket knives to school from about 2nd grade onward, and we wandered the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the old clay quarry without getting murdered, etc. and our parents and schools didn't worry too much.

My company still runs a large FoxPro application for its business. It started as dBase II, then moved to FoxBase, then eventually to Visual FoxPro. Development started in 1986, and is ongoing for new features, and there's still code (some of which I wrote) from 1987 running.
