Interesting subjct. Do we really have the possibility to alter the future ? Even if we were adviced of what is to come ? A couple of thoughts. If we assume that the future is not pretermined, then there has to be effect without cause, for otherwise, a true randomness cannot exist. This is the revers...

My name is slightly old. When I got my first internet account and email address in 1988, I needed a "catchy" name (it was all the rage back then). Found a copy of The Silmarillion and browsed the appendices. Found the name Gorthaur, which sort of had a nice sound. Unfortunatly, being Danish, I could...

*Sigh* I would have loved to see it. Always been fascinated by the sky above me. Heck, one of my friends is the director of The Planetarium in Copenhagen and he used to show and tell all kind of interesting stuff. Unfortunately, I'm sitting on a plane from L.A. to London that day. No Venus for Gorth...

You might want to switch "Mouselook" on in your settings.

Kotor has some slightly awkward controls for pc users.

If you use mouselook, you can "realease" you mousepointer for clicking on things, by holding down the right mousebutton

It's awful. It has all the kliches for its genre. No real plot. No memorable acting. No special effects to write home about. And yet, the movie is greater than the sum of it's parts. I love it.

Thats because Jesus' father was way more famous. I mean, everybody has at least heard of God, how many people know anything about Xanthippos ? The poor guys starts out at a distinct disadvantage.
