Large Hadron Collider circa 1901
Nope-duralumin Zeppelin frame being constructed! Oh those Geeks!
good to see none of the humor was lost on you.
Learned to day that London had a telephone exchange in the 1880s. & that wireless voice communications were actually designed & demonstated during the the same era - Photophone.
CiV (C5) Industrial Era Great Scientist (screenie by ainwood):
That is definitely Steampunk! A Civ 5 to Civ 3 conversion on the way...
Nautilus!! This is motivating me, in spite of people sending me 12 MB batches of sample images.
Must be readin' up on yon Verne literature.
Yeah, but did you open the door?
Irising peepholes, yes I have.
Incidentally, for anyone who's able to watch BBC4, there is an adaptation of The first men in the Moon on Sunday with Mark Gatiss which looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.
Can I borrow your license & use your home computer as a proxy to stream it?
Actually, let us know how it is since it may eventually be available in DVD.
Wouldn't it be available on IPlayer?
In the US most current videos are restricted by the BBC. I almost always get a "not available outside of Britain" message. Streams of the radio stations are not restricted. I don't understand why there's a regulatory difference, but there is.
I get the same here in Buenos Aires. WMG, EMI, Sony, etc. are constantly blocking videos, music etc. because of 'copyright issues'.
Yes, iPlayer videos can only be watched in the UK, much as Hulu (the US equivalent) is available only there.
Hulu is funded by the government & administered by presidential appointees? I hope I don't have to start paying an annual fee for a website I never use.
The BBC First Men in the Moon is available in several places as a torrent download & there are trailers for it all over the place now.
I have BBC America, and if they can manage to sandwich it in between reruns of Top Gear, Gordon Ramsay and Graham Norton, I'm sure to catch it there.
Legally and officially sanctioned by the BBC, right?
Argentinian standard practice is that it's legal until someone comes with a court order, manages to find my place, manages to find me in there at the time, and makes me read the order.
