Re: Wonders of the Modern World

DrFumblefinger ·
The Soviets have never been completely transparent about Chernobyl, but this is the story as best as I was able to synthesize it: It seems that the alarm system was malfunctioning (going off all the time) so it was turned off by the tech monitoring the system. He had the fuel rods pulled out of their cooling chambers for maintenance work, was distracted (remember, the alarms are off), then by the time he focused back on the task at hand the rods had begun to melt and couldn't be reinserted...

Re: London In 1927, Recreated Shot For Shot.

PortMoresby ·
It's possible that the images are hand colored, an art with which I have some experience although still photos only. One would have to dig deeper to find out the timing of the use of color stock. I suspect there were a number of phases so it would depend on one's definition. Read here while I go watch a movie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C...ng_and_hand_coloring

Re: London In 1927, Recreated Shot For Shot.

PHeymont ·
Back to research, and found that between 1903 and 35 there were quite a few colored films, colored in the sense of dye being added (usually by mechanical, not hand, process). 1935's Technicolor Process 4 was the first true color film, made with 4 negatives (CMYK). Claude Friese-Greene, responsible for the London film, used a process (started by his father) that used multiple copies of black and white negatives, rephotographing them through different color filters.

Re: Gifts to bring back from Portugal or Barcellona

I know that hand painted ceramic tiles are popular there in Portugal and Spain. But they can get heavy. Maybe wrap them in your clothes, but they'd be nice gifts I think. Put them up on a wall, use them for hot pots or a hot drinks.

Re: GPS v. Sicily = WTF

artsnletters ·
Just returned from a month in Greece. I don't know what I would have done without GPS, given that streets are not always marked, and when they are, it can be difficult to see the signs (posted on buildings, not on the street corner) or they can be only in Greek. On the other hand, it's hardly foolproof! Sometimes hard to tell who was the bigger fool, me or the GPS!

Hi Pheymont I wouldn't worry about the wine and tapas portion. Things are really inexpensive her, and the tapas has been universally good. It's easy to get three or four tapas to share and a couple of glasses of wine for 15 Euro. As for the tours, we didn't take any, but I think for one day in Cordoba it would be a good idea because I think that day may feel really busy.

Re: I get to Boomerang to Spain ! Cheap !

PHeymont ·
Well, but if Spain is the destination, passing up UK makes sense. On the other hand, APD leads to calculations such as Flying NYC-LON-Continental Europe: No problem; as long as your time in UK is less than 24 hours, you are a transit passenger and don't pay APD. Flying Continential Europe-LON-NYC: Not so good; you pay the APD on the trans-Atlantic leg, and that's high. The other issue with this is not APD at all; flying to the Continent through Madrid or Barcelona tends to be cheaper because...

Re: How Dumb can you be? Things not to say to the TSA

This makes me groan. We finally got TSA PreCheck, and in New Orleans this is worth the price. We sail right through security without taking anything out of our bags and without taking off shoes or belts. I had to bring through medications that could not go through the scanners, but that hand check was swift. This might not be the case at JFK, PHL, or at DFW.
