    anyone have GoPro tips or advice. I think I got the underwater settings OK, but can not get audio set with underwater (waterproof) casing so that you can hear on land. Going to Puerto Rico soon zip-lining and want to use waterproof casing (as it is a rain forest) to record the zips. Who would use head mount or chest mount? I use wrist mount underwater. Has anyone tried red filter for SCUBA diving or deeper free diving? Anyone found a red filter that is easily mounted and removed over lens? Thanks!

    For a couple weeks I've been tossing up whether or not to buy the Imperial Edition.I played a bit of the BETA, and for a short time (slow internet that day, got kicked) and can't say I was that impressed.But, with that said, because I ~did~ get kicked, in BETA, I didn't really get to experience much at all, and my opinion is pretty small on it. It seemed kind of average from what I played, but I didn't get far enough in to really see the full extent.What's everyone's opinion on it?Yay or Nay on the Imperial and P2P?

Years later, Chris has discovered that countless pieces of copyrighted material had been lifted from across the Internet and planted on this site. This has created problems for our entire business model. Plus, Ning decided to jack up the hosting rates to the point where Chris could no longer justify paying premiums for what little revenue was coming in.

    At this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, viewers waiting to see the premiere of In Your Eyes were shown a short video message from the film’s writer, Joss Whedon. He apologized for not being there (he was on the set of Age of Ultron in the video.) He hoped everyone enjoyed the film, and then casually mentioned that this wasn’t just the premiere of the film at Tribeca, it was the premiere of the film worldwide. It was available for anyone to rent from Vimeo for five dollars. Immediately. The internet, of course, lost its collective mind. I heard about it when BBC.com broke the…

    Keith Rabois famously quipped, “I don’t know of a single successful CEO or entrepreneur who blogs regularly.”That was five months ago, and people are still talking about it. And agreeing.But why?Sure the usual exceptions are trotted out – Rand Fishkin, Joel Gascoigne, etc.. But the examples outweigh the exceptions 100-to-1.Much easier is listing those who used to blog a lot, but trailed off as their companies grew — Joel Spolsky (who essentially stopped blogging after raising money for StackExchange), Dharmesh Shah (who trailed off substantially when…

    People say the end of the year is a terrible time to raise money or sell a company, because “everyone’s only thinking about the holidays” and “monied people are off skiing in Aspen.”Except, my previous company Smart Bear was sold on Dec 20, 2007.

If you like this, go see his Shockwave Innovations blog)Anyone that has taken an accounting class or learned basic business financials knows the interaction between key elements of a P&L (revenue, cost, expense) and a balance sheet (assets, liabilities, equity). But it’s surprising to me how many companies with recurring/subscription revenue don’t understand the interactions between the elements that make up customer acquisition cost (CAC), churn and lifetime value (LTV).

    The first Academy Awards took place during a simple banquet held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in May 1929. Douglas Fairbanks was the Academy president and, after all the speeches had ended, he handed out the Oscars to the winners. Because the winners had already been announced some three months earlier, everyone knew the outcome. During that first ceremony, fifteen Oscar statuettes were awarded for “cinematic achievements” of 1927 and 1928. Emil Jannings was the first ever Best Actor winner. Because he had to return to Europe before the ceremony was held, his Oscar was the…

Pretty much everywhere you looked someone was playing a Gameboy and mobile phones were reserved for Snake and Snake only.

    Original article on GHL website - A different take on the lottery Most people think of taking part in a lottery as a positive thing. For a small stake you could be in with a chance of winning millions; especially now that you can buy your lotto tickets online and enter national lotteries in other countries as well as your own. The other bonus in buying lotto tickets online is that you don’t even have to check your numbers after a draw – if you have a win, you’ll get notification via SMS or email. And even if you haven’t purchased your tickets online, you can still check the results…

  • A Risk Managed Approach To Protective Monitoring

    admin
    28 Mar 2014 | 11:17 am
    As organisations start to quantify the threats to their networks, data and assets, protective monitoring is becoming a commonly used buzz word as the saviour in the cyber arms race. Many organisations now fear that without these controls, their networks simply aren’t secure enough to function without the imminent threat of compromise, resulting in potentially catastrophic events. With cyber security newsfeeds reporting a regular occurrence of data breaches, Government snooping and the continuous threat of fines from the Information Commissioners Office, protective monitoring is an area that…

    There are so many different types of beer all over the world. Thousands of bottles and glasses are enjoyed by people every day all year round. However, people who enjoy drinking beer are all faced with the same problem. If you do not drink it fast enough, all of the head of the drink, or the bubbles on top go away.

    See all reviews of Protectors, Inc. (4)And so we reach the finale for the first arc of Protectors, Inc. It has been a slow moving series, but with the last issue, things definitely seem to be picking up. Is it good? Protectors, Inc. #6 (Image Comics) A fire hits the coroner’s office and all the evidence regarding the Huntsman’s death goes up in flames. Lieutenant Detective Riley is running out of leads between getting no help from talking with the actual members of Protectors, Inc. and now with the fire. How is he going to find the killer at this rate? We may have reached the end…
  • Is It Good? Sovereign #2 Review

    Jordan Richards
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:30 pm
    See all reviews of Sovereign (2)Last issue of Sovereign was a bit… questionable. It was okay, but it read more like a preview for a few different stories rather than the real thing. Maybe the next issue is where things start shaping up and getting better. Let’s find out: Is it good? Sovereign #2 (Image Comics) Like the previous issue (and I’m guessing how the series will ultimately be), the comic is broken into three different stories. The first one is “Ghost Eaters,” going back to the trio of monks as they travel to the Court of the Horselords, meeting people along the way.

    See all reviews of The Flash (3)It’s a brand new beginning for The Flash. We’ve got ourselves a new creative team with Robert Venditti and Van Jensen writing and Brett Booth drawing. This could be either really good or very “meh” judging from previous works they have done. Either way, is it good? The Flash #30 (DC Comics) It’s after the events of Forever Evil (hey DC, actually end the event before you have comics about the aftermath) and Central City has gone to crap. Barry Allen AKA The Flash is trying his best to fix the city while still having a major guilt trip for…

    See all reviews of Star Wars: Legacy (13)When I found out Marvel will be taking over the comic publishing duties for Star Wars I was rather bummed. Sure we are over a year from that day, but Legacy has been so good the last 13 issues I can’t help feel sad it’ll have to end. Of course, any title can be prone to throwing out a stinker. Star Wars: Legacy #14: Is it good? Star Wars Legacy #14 (Dark Horse Comics) Last issue Ania Solo, descendant of Han escaped from an assassin due to her ex-boyfriend showing up. This is the same boyfriend who kidnapped her over in issue #11, so take…

    Just recently saw Transcendence, and despite ominous forewarnings from sites like Rotten Tomatoes (19% OUCH!), and near catastrophic reviews from Huffington Post, Hollywood Reporter, and many others, I had this film on my ‘MUST-WATCH’ list for 2014, and was determined to work my way through it through Hell or high water! It had its faults, there’s no doubt about it, but I still enjoyed the premise of the film.

    New X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer released today gives us even better looks at the sentinel force in full attack mode, Wolverine’s challenge at convincing a young Xavier of his mission and Magneto, as powerful as you have ever seen him. New X-Men Trailer for Days of Future Past: My only worry with the culmination of this trailer and the several others that we have already seen is that we are perhaps seeing TOO MUCH.

    Peanuts, the much-loved comic strip by the late Charles M. Schulz, is set to become a 3D animated movie. The movie, scheduled for release on November 6, 2015, is being made by 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios. The writer is Brian Schulz (the grandson of Charles), and the producer is Charles Schulz's son Craig. Craig Schulz is keeping details a secret, saying only "it's about a round-headed kid and his dog, and that's about as far as I'm willing to go".

    For those of you playing at home while fans attend a convention it can be hard to keep up with what’s been said. And even if you do find some quotes, it’s difficult to understand the context in which things are said, which can alter the meaning completely.

    24 Apr 2014 | 1:45 am
    Naruto returned with another exploding manga issue this week. We got to see Naruto and Sasuke work as a team again, and showcase some more new cool-looking powers. There were some things that didn’t make sense to me, but I’ll get to those later. The chapter started with Madara attacking the two ninjas with lightening. Naruto threw one of his ‘chakra sticks’ to block the attack and Sasuke used his Rinnegan. I’m very interested in what Sasuke’s new eyes can do. The whole action sequence was very fast and it took me some time to figure out what was happening. The working behind…

    The moment Rachel’s been waiting for all her life finally came this week. Even though she isn’t my favorite character, I still enjoyed the episode. Old friends returned to show support, and there was some good character development. Naturally the episode started with Rachel (Lea Michele) freaking out about opening night. I smiled seeing Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) making an appearance in her dream. I wish the writers could find a way to involve him in the story for real. His scenes with Kurt (Chris Colfer) were wonderful back in Season 3. The episode was primarily about Rachel and the rest…

    This week’s episode had something that Supernatural fans have been looking forward to for weeks- the long awaited return of Sheriff Jody Mills. She’s one of the few reoccurring female characters on Team Winchester that hasn’t been killed and infuses a much needed female energy into the show. Jody Mills is an incredible character and the actress, Kim Rhodes, has endeared herself to the fandom with her active and insightful tweeting. She’s an absolute pleasure to talk to and it was wonderful to have her back on our screen. Before the title card flashed we were shown…
  • Adventure Time 6×01 Review: Wake Up/Escape from the Citadel

    22 Apr 2014 | 7:27 am
    Adventure Time has commanded its place as Cartoon Network’s best animated show for four years now, and in that time it has given us many dark and disturbing episodes. While most of these episodes have cut through their creepiness with a biting humor (usually aimed at its adult audience), the season six premiere was predominantly humorless and therefore the first truly distressing episode. This is not to say that the premiere, a half-hour special composed of “Wake Up” and “Escape from the Citadel”, wasn’t funny. The episode opened with a lighthearted party at Prismo the…

  • Movie Monday: Godzilla 1954

    21 Apr 2014 | 1:43 pm
    Godzilla is called the “King of All Monsters” and for good reason.  Where a lot of his 1950s counterparts have faded off into the sun, or attempted in vain to revamp themselves for the new age of special effects, Godzilla (aside from a certain movie we won´t mention now) has maintained true to its rubbery roots and thus remained a constant in people´s imaginations.To watch a Godzilla movie one has to enter into a world where cynicism doesn´t exist and social messages are plain and easy to grasp.  This doesn´t mean we dumb ourselves down, but rather, suspend our urge to…
