It seems that they don’t want you to use apostrophes and double quotes. I tried sending them messages too and I experienced the same frustrating error message which would require you to login and enter OTP twice. I guess this may be related to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SQL_injection. The developers may have opted to disallow customers from using those characters, but yes, that is lame and there are other solutions to this.

Hi Radek, unfortunately I’m unable to find the original source code for this; I had previously been running a Django-backed blog but have since migrated it and the posts over to WordPress

I don’t actually mind Magneto in the yellow and blue. I guess in my head he wasn’t really that guy yet. I agree that the wisecracking Hal Jordan wasn’t particularly keeping true to the character, but at least they kept it to a minimum and most of the jokes are left in Hal’s apartment. I agree that Reynolds is a terrible choice though, as it’s hard to take him seriously :p

The only problem I have with X-Men First Class is that SOME IDIOT thought Magneto looked good in yellow.When I watch comic movies, the first thing I tell myself is that it’s a different universe, meaning events that happen won’t necessarily mirror the comic origins. All I really care about is that the characters remain true to their core essence (for example, Magneto NOT looking good in yellow). On the topic of GL, that’s precisely my issue with it.

Fairly comprehensive! We’re glad you enjoyed the trip, and that you could come over.Not much to vouch for going here for, so I guess the next bet is the next GP here. Unless you want to watch the F1 GP, that is.

Re: extra discussion, the prereleases here are usually pretty friendly affairs, friendly enough to get my girlfriend to play. The prize scheme is a little different, with 1 pack for less than a win and a draw, 2 packs for 4-8 points, 4 packs for 9-10 points and 6 for 11-12 points (if i remember correctly). I think in general you should loosen up at these things, but geography and relative costs are a factor here, as well, since there’s probably ten venues with events, usually both days, and a large event at Suntec.

Comment by Jaime on A Christmas Story

I think the key here is to differentiate what is help, and what would be aggravating the situation.In your mind, nothing violent happened, and you cannot “fix” the situation without knowing what the problem was, so what was there for you to do? Interview the guy (since the woman was not in any state to be interviewed) and get an informative answer?Calling the DSWD hotline might have been the “best” thing to do at the time, but that’s just effort transfer, and you’re not even sure who’s right.

@Kerwin: Actually with the trends in mobile internet usage, it’s more likely that the opposite will be true – the online world will be leaving people’s houses and interacting with us in the outside world!

i’m telling you, the time will come when no one will be going out of their houses at all, they’ll all be interacting online.

Aba aba sir roy, bumili ka na din! Haha. Personally, gusto ko hintayin ang version na may facetime (sans any external hardware).Regarding the slow (and misleading) USB charging, I think that happens when you try to charge with a mobile device (e.g. a laptop). By standard, USB connectors on desktops provide a more “stable” power output as compared to mobile devices due to their (more often) lack of a “fixed” power source.
