Re: Shocking !

Being bald is not a disability, Ian, but being blind is ! For Yul Brunner and Ted Savalas their baldness was even their trademark. It was a bit trendy some years ago, but now you're getting old-fashioned again. But in fact I agree with you, Ian, and I appreciate the fact that you think about it. I ...

Dear Willy, I find this AMATEUR and Pro thing serious. The IAC (in my opinion) is for AMATEURS only. The Pro`s have there body of competitions and organisations so they should keep to that! I class a Pro as someone who works fulltime and an AMATEUR who works part time or does a hobby for no money ga...

Re: Is IAC magazine worth it?

Sorry Willy if I offended you. I didn`t mean to do it. I just wanted to point it out. You can of course write what you like! Sometimes if things are not pointed out then the situation could get worse and every remark in a thread could end up with swear words all over the place. Again I`m not being t...

Re: Is IAC magazine worth it?

[quote="Peter Dear Ian I'm just interested, but is this because you think the name "Jesus" in a religious context is a waste of time, or as I suspect, the opposite? Personally, I don't mind such usage on this MB, as I eff and blind myself all day long, which includes such use, but then I'm an athies...

Re: Shocking !

a blind man would like to buy a flat..... I find this type of film very funny indeed. I know it knocks blind people. I can fully understand that. But that is comody for you. Comody pokes fun of everything. If not done in very poor taste then I would produce something similar. If someone made a film...

Isn`t just right. The cheap DVD players etc, play all the formats you throw at it but the `proper` branded one`s (and dearer) like Sony only play a few. I`ve made discs that will play on the cheap one`s but stutter non the better one`s. My Sony is like this. Quality product but stubbern sometimes.

I still don`t trust DVD`s as a medium to put my films on. At our club meetings, many of the films are put onto DVD for showing. Most play ok but many still stop and stutter. I know it`s to do with burning and bitrates etc. But no one has published a `PERFECT` combination of settings on this so peopl...
