  1. mj - it's still in development, and he was giving a visual presentation. I'd be willing to bet that they're going to get some pretty powerful writing and programing tools on there. I think he was just showing the most impresive, innovative, and entertaining aspects of it because of the nature of the presentation.

  2. I LOVE Rent!!!!! The only problem I had with it is that it cut out a few of my favorite songs, but they would have been extremely hard to do in movie form, so I can understand why they weren't there.


    To anyone who has heard the original soundtrack: what did you think of the new Joanne and the new Mimi compared to the originals?



    I haven't heard all of the original songs, but I have heard the two 'Seasons of Love' from both the original cast and the movie. I didn't really think there was much of a difference. Well, they were different but they both worked. As for Mimi, I liked the new Mimi better. I forget what the title of her solo is, but the orginal just grated on me.

  3. In response to what someone said earlier: You can NOT fully uninstall IE. It's an intregral part of Windows. Without it you can't navigate your files or update the OS.


    My solution (not to the whole thing, just once you've gotten the machine working again):

    1. Install FF. Much safer. This site is much better at explaining why than I am. Basically since IE is so integrated into your system it is in and of itself a security gap.


    2. Delete all icons and shortcuts to IE. Replace them with FF shortcuts. This will prevent accidentally accessing IE.


    3. Make sure that you've got all the right protection, it sounds like you already do, but anyways: AVG, Spybot S&D, Adaware, and Spyware Blaster are what I've got on this computer.


    4. Defrag your computer on a regular basis. Doesn't do anything for security, but it'll help keep your computer up to speed. If you don't know where it is go to Start:Programs:Acessories:System Tools and it should be there.


    Good luck :welcome:

  4. I thought it was great. The one problem is that a lot of people were comparing it to the actual play and saying that the film lacked the intamacy of the stage. Having never seen the actual play, I thought the film was incredible.


    I love Angel, he's awesome. Especially the number he did in the 4"+ heels at the begining of the play. I also loved Mimi's solo at the club. That kicked so much butt :welcome:

  5. Here are my suggestions:


    For actual content:

    Sci-fi sounds good, but you should have something tying it together. Is it going to be humor? Is it going to be your convention photos and personal experiences? Is it going to be blog-like? Is it going to be a referance, if so is it aimed at hard-core fans or newbie? I like a web site to be well pulled together in terms of what it's aiming for.


    For coding:

    Don't do frames. Use HTML (preferably XHTML. HTML and XHTML are almost identical, XHTML is just stricter and thus tends to be cleaner and easier to use and is more likely to work properly.) and CSS. When using CSS define everything in different div's, this allows you to layer them and position them so that the page works on ALL browsers without major complications. Here's some great references:


    XHTML tutorial (basic, but good)

    Blue Robot (has a great layout resevoir for basic CSS set-ups, I STRONGLY recommend this one)

    CSS Zen Garden (This stuff is much more advanced, but it really shows the potential of CSS) (Lots of tutorials, these people put together the web standards, kind of the ultimate resource for the internet


    If you want more I can give them to you :dude:
