    Need to find a very nice hotel in New York for this weekend

    Hi Everyone, An unexpected trip to NYC just popped up, and I need to find a really nice hotel to stay at on Saturday night (February 11, 2006). Can anyone local recommend something spectacular? I was thinking something on a very high floor that would have a great view of the city, either...

    Where can I rent a lottery drawing machine?

    Thanks Jeff, for your very helpful message. I guess I'll try to track down a bingo machine. Any idea where I should start (bingo in the yellow pages?) Any particular brands / manufacturers / machines that you can recommend? Thanks! Bob

    Where can I rent a lottery drawing machine?

    Hi Everyone, This is kind of a strange request... I'm looking to rent a lottery drawing machine for a presentation I'm doing next week. I'm talking about the type of thing they use for Lotto 6/49, that spins the numbered balls, as seen here: http://www.garronlottery.com/theShamrock.htm Does...

    PDA purchasing

    Hi Chad, I currently own an iPaq 4150, and I previously owned a dell Axim X50V. The Axim was great, and the VGA screen was amazing, but overall I found it was a little too large for me. The 4150 is very slim, and I just heard that HP is going to be re-introducing a new unit with the 4150 form...

    Can't read from CD-ROM, please help!

    Hi everyone, I burned a backup copy of all my documents to a CD yesterday. I even burned two copies of the disc, in case there was some sort of burning error that wasn't reported. Now, I've reformatted my computer, reinstalled Windows XP, and I can't read from the CD. About 75% of the...

    InFocus X1 vs. BenQ 6100 – any Toronto demos?

    I picked up the 6100 last night at Future Shop. They've got a 14 day return policy, but if you use the bulb for more than one hour, you need to pay a 10% restocking fee. I didn't like that policy too much, but Business Depot doesn't stock them (they'd need to ship it) so I decided to take the...

    InFocus X1 vs. BenQ 6100 – any Toronto demos?

    Hi Everyone, I’m really excited about buying my first projector, though I don’t have a huge budget to work with. I’m pretty sure that I’ve narrowed it down to these two. The 6100 can be had for $999 Canadian ($1199 minus $200 rebate until Oct. 26 at Business Depot), and the X1 is $1277...

    I sold out and accepted a new job.

    This is a very interesting discussion, I'm enjoying hearing from both sides. A question for you Gary, which isn't meant as a flame or a judgement on what you did. What did you get out of your year off? Did you accomplish anything that you wanted to do for your whole life, but weren't able to...

    Visiting New York City - What to see?

    Thanks again for some fantastic suggestions! I think we're going to take a tour of the United Nations, it was one of the things we hadn't decided on. (Unfortunately I don't think it will be as hilarious as the Ali G tour of the UN!) It's too bad that FAO Schwarz is closed, I was under the...

    Visiting New York City - What to see?

    Hi Everyone, Wow, thanks for the great replies! We've been reading travel guides to learn more about the different areas of NYC, and I still can't get over how many different places there are. Michael, I'm very interested in non-musical theatre, so any suggestions you have would be more...

    Visiting New York City - What to see?

    Hi Everyone! My girlfriend and I are going to New York City from August 5 – 8, 2004. I searched and read all of the previous “New York” threads, which gave me a really great starting point for planning the trip. We’re flying into Newark at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday (because we got a...

    Things to See & Do in Las Vegas?

    I'd say that BLUE MAN GROUP is an absolute must-see. I've never seen a better live show! The fact that you're staying at the Luxor should help you get better seats (that's where I stayed too.) Penn and Teller are amazing, I'd recommend their show at the Rio. Rio buffet was really good too...

    Project Greenlight 2 - any updates?

    Rats, wish I had pre-ordered this... That sounds like a great deal! I've never pre-ordered a DVD before, and it looks like this is going to be nearly $100 in the stores. Darn it, I'll pay that too, just because I'm so hooked on this show. I'll be buying it after work on Tuesday, though I'll...

    Project Greenlight 2 - any updates?

    This comes out Tuesday... I can't wait! I haven't been able to find any reviews online (except for the ones on amazon.com) - are there any yet? Bob P.S. If you happen to know of a store in Toronto that tends to put discs out a day or two early, please send me a private message... I've...

    Criterion 'Notorious' - for $5

    I think I'm going to take the long subway and long bus ride out there tomorrow (I live downtown, so it's quite a haul!) Brian, I read your tips about which stores to shop at in the Asian Cinema on DVD thread - thanks very much for the guide! One quick question though - are there any stores...

    Magnus - You're right, I'm sure it will eventually become the norm, but I just wish directors weren't prematurely jumping into digital. Every month there are interesting editorials in American Cinematographer where the president of the ASC just talks about how terrible the state of digital...

    Collateral

    I understand that he intended to make it look like this, but as an audience member I still don't like it. I can't help but think that the delays on a movie set aren't due to reloading. There's always a person (the loader) who is only responsible for getting new magazines ready. It's as easy...

    Collateral

    I just saw this trailer projected in a theater, and the quality looks TERRIBLE. Why do directors shoot on HD? It just doesn't look as good as film. You can't tell me that if Michael Mann could get Tom Cruise, he couldn't afford to shoot it on 35mm. It's frustrating when there isn't enough...

    Owning a Toco Toucan as a pet

    Has anyone out there ever owned a toucan as a pet? I recently got to meet and hold one of these amazing birds, and I'd like to get one of them, provided that they're not illegal to own. Does anyone currently have one? How much space do they need? How easy are they to train? Any help would be...

    HOw do you stop hockey gloves from smelling bad

    There's a company called esporta that makes a machine specifically designed to take the smell out of hockey equipment. There's an article about it here: http://www.esporta.ca/pages/news/langley.html I just noticed that it's the company website, they've just reprinted the article...
