Heh I know what happened to my reply. I thought you wrote MORGAN Freeman! :)

I was pretty sure I would have noticed him present :)

One of the nice side effects of Shawshank Redemption and seeing 1 Alex Cross Movie with MF in it, is that now when I read James Patterson books with Alex Cross in them, I can hear him speaking in my head :)

Yes... I am now reading the latest Bond novel Carte Blanche and I automatically imagine Pierce Brosnan when readiing the action passages...

trig42: I enjoyed that series as well, does anyone know when more are due?

Yeah, it's due to show in the UK in 2012, which means it'll be 2013 before it's on TV here.

You got to admit, the british can make some pretty good series, I often find myself watching UKTV more often, I just get sick of the US crap that is constantly shoved down our thoat by TV1,2,3

How's it going?  Any good?  I've got it sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to finish Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (before the movie comes out)

They never mean "everywhere including NZ" when they say "international" when talking about publishers/copyright/etc.

Or pay $5 into a seedbox fund instead, heh.

Apologies for resurrecting this thread, but I'm curious how unblock-us.com works.  I had a look at their website, and they had instructions for static DNS to put into the router, so all devices on the router would presumably use those DNS to look up websites and thus circumvent the region blocking.  But if that's the case, then what are you actually paying for?  Do you need more than the static DNS to be able to get round the region blocking?
