  1. Bit disapointed with the cyberwoman episode, it didnt seem to go anywhere apart from up and down stairs. :/


    John Barrowman was on Jonathon Ross last night and he was very funny, maybe they should inject a little of his humour into Torchwood. :)


    Here you go db:

  2. Er, yeah. That is the best way to remove an arrow. Dont ask how I know, lets just say my dad is a shit shot with a bow and arrow.bowandarrowvd9.gif I dont think my brother has forgiven him yet!!! "Bloody kids!! Why didnt he stand still instead of running around all the time!!!" :o

  3. I recently downloaded Opera, I used it years ago when it was version 6 or 7


    I am more impressed with the recent build, however it does not handle ajax well.







    I think you should do youre own cleaning, never mind asking your web browser to do it!! =))=))=))=))=))

  4. Was that a regeneration? I thought he just pinched Tremas' body and moved his "Spirit" into it. His plan was to use the power of the keeper to merge with the Doctors body, but when that didnt work he just grabbed the nearest availble one. Maybe the twelve regenerations limit was something imposed by the Time Lords, now there arent here anymore the Doctor can go merrily on his way regenarating with nobody to stop him :D


    Now, I have it in my head that during the Deadly Assasin someone refers to Sheboogans which is the lowest class of Gallifreyan, but they arent time lords. This makes me think that the ordinary people can be "promoted" to Time Lord status and thus become able to regenerate. The Sheboogans are the lowest of the low, criminals and hooligans so they wouldnt be able to acheieve higher status but maybe others would.



    Ha! Found it! I knew i'd read this somewhere :D



    The families of High Gallifrey are split into a number of Chapters. The origin of these Chapters is shrouded in mystery, and may have grown from workers' guilds or unions, or perhaps from family groupings. Currently there are a large number of these Chapters, though only three, the Prydonians, the Archalians, and the Patrexes, are of any real political significance. Of the three, the Prydonian Chapter is both the largest and the most influential. It has given rise to more Presidents than all of the other Chapters combined, and a very high number of the the politicians and movers of Time Lord society are from this Chapter.
    There are other, more plebeian, classes of society, but theses are not Time Lords. They are the common folk of Gallifrey, the lowest of whom are known as the Sheboogans--considered lazy, feckless, and often criminal. Naturally, the Time Lords have as little contact as possible with these members of society, and are not terribly interested in the way that those beings run or organize their lives.


    Time Lord Politics.


    Mind you, could all be complete bollocks!! :D

  5. The age thing is an oddity, in Tomb of the Cybermen the Dr states that he is 400 years old or something like that and the current Dr has stated his age to be around 900 years old. Not 100% sure of these figures but they are roughly right, but when you have a long hard look at the length of time companions stayed with the Dr and the way they have overlapped with each other you can say that the Dr must have done a hell of a lot of years in the rare occasions he has travvelled on his own. He could have gained a few years during the Pertwee era by sneaking off while Jo and the unit gang were asleep and staying away for a few years and then returning the next morning, if you get what I mean. :blink: Obviously, we have no idea how many years the Eccleston or McGann Dr's travelled on their own for, so that could account for a few years there.


    In the Five Doctors the time lords offer the master a whole new regenration cycle in return for his help, so this suggests that regenration is something that is bestowed on a Time Lord rather than something that is natural to them. I read somewhere that the Time Lords are chosen from the ordinary Gallifrey population and when they graduate from the academy they are given a Tardis and a regenration cycle, but i'm damned if I can remember where I read this or wether it was official or not. :/


    Please feel free to contradict me as I really arent sure of my facts here. :D

  6. I got the Horror of Fang Rock in the post this week, missed that one when it was aired first time round and had only ever read the paperback. I loved it! :D The Rutan was a great creature. Now am I right in thinking that was the only story that featured the Rutans? I know they were mentioned by the Sontarans on more than one occasion but I cant remember them ever appearing again. :/

  7. well my parcel turn up today at 9.20 am as usual next day delivery using intial shitty link.


    I cannot see any company willing to post out stuff like this without a signature. However the parcel farce depot being 1 mile away for you to pick up your goods with you being out during day, you woudl think ukdvdr would realise youhave a point.


    I would have bought them from SVP but they are always out of stock when i want to try them.


    Other than that ukdvdr have always delivered when they said Next day.


    If your order is late they refund you delivery charge.


    They do not seem the brightest bunch though.


    The latest shamble with this bunch of clowns is over six quids worth of ink cartridges! :/ The postage cost nearly as much as the cartridges but I was desparate to finish a college project, I wont be using them again thats for sure. I've ordered some of the 16x from svp so I will see how they go. :D Although I wont be home this weekend, so it will be midweek before I try them.

  8. ukdvdr


    Ah, I was tempted for a minute to buy some myself. But not if it involves ukdvdr! I have never had one parcel delivered on time from them and it is all down to the crap couriers they use. I have even offered to pay extra so that they will send stuff by parcel force and they just dont want to know. I live right out in the middle of the country and i'm at work all day and they use a courier whose depot is 40 miles away and that wont leave a parcel without a signature. Parcel Force have a depot a mile away and the thick shits at ukdvdr dont understand why I want to use parcel force! :doh: Crap company, crap service in my opinion. Cheap though. :/


    By the way I have been using the Panasonic 8x for quite a while and they are pretty good so I might just get some of the 16x if SVP have them, at least I can get the parcels to my house from them! :D

  9. I was never a fan to be honest, I have kept a few snakes and lizards in the past and I never liked the way he handled them or turned them into some kind of circus act. But saying that it is a terrible shame as he had done a lot of very good work raising awareness of the plight of some of the less cuddly animals that are hunted near to extinction at times. Seems like he just forgot the golden rule that any wild animal, whatever species, size, or shape is still a wild animal and will defend itself in any way it can if aggrevated and annoyed in the way Irwin seemed to do at times. Hopefully all the good work he has done can be carried on by the rest of his team without the need to dangle small children over crocodile cages. ;)
