    Yeah mate, we know how hard it is for you, and just hope you keep doing the work that your doing currently.

    But it's just a tad annoying when it's like a 10 minute downtime. It's not the end of the world, just a tad annoying.

    But as said, keep up the good work.

    Definitely annoying, but a little better than the 45-60 minute downtimes we were having before.

    I don't mind there being downtime, it happens at most forums, the CW ones always seem to clash with my lunch break at work though

    Do the spikes correspond to when Richard logs on to the forums?

    American remakes of good foreign tv shows / movies.

    For example:

    Anyone in Aus seen the Channel 10 promo for Life On Mars? Anyone remember the British show exactly the same (title and everything) that was airing about late 2007 on ABC?

    And, not expecting anyone to put their hand up here coz it is a pretty girly movie, but a year or so ago there was a Catherine Zeta-Jones film called No Reservations. Identical to a slightly older German film entitled Mostly Martha, which was actually a highly enjoyable movie with a really cute Italian guy in it.



    I hate it how the Americans get all the credit for good plots and good scripts just coz a lot of people don't realise it's been done before in a different country...

    Men Behaving Badly was one of the worst atrocities along those lines.

    And Kath and Kim - don't really like the Aussie version, but plenty of people do, and yet the American version is apparently excremental.

    Yeah I've heard. Wastes a great couple of actors in Selma Blair and Molly Shannon too which shows you just how poorly-written it is.

    Did anyone see the Americanised version of 'The Castle'? That got buried quick.
