Hehe, great joke with the business card. Just watch out for Bill Buck, you'll end up all over the news now.

Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

No, its more a case of Spartacus = CEO . . .
In the context of the movie, when the Roman armies defeat the make-shift army of excaped slaves -- their General seeks Spartacus to execute him. Not knowing what he looks like; he asks, "who is Spartacus?"

Before Sparticus can step forward, a skinny old man steps forward, saying, "I'm Sparticus!"

Whereupon just about every captured slave within earshot steps forward, and says, "I'm Sparticus!"

Frustrated, the Roman general crucifies them all alongside the road leading back to Rome.

(( note: The movie is a dramatization of the story of the revolt of Roman slaves that was led by Sparticus, a gladiator. It took THREE Roman armies to defeat them after they failed to escape Italy via a seaport in the south. The movie was made by Stanley Kubrick. ))

From Historical Background for Spartacus

Quote:
when the revolt was at its height and Spartacus had about 120,000 followers


Quote:
The courage, tenacity, and ability of the Thracian gladiator who held Roman forces at bay for some two years and built a handful of followers into an assemblage of over 120,000 men can only inspire admiration.


Quote:
Spartacus subsequently defeated two forces of legionary cohorts ... but the Gauls and Germans ... wanted to stay and plunder


Quote:
The Gauls and Germans, separated from Spartacus, were defeated by Publicola


Quote:
Spartacus defeated the proconsul of Cisalpine Gaul at Mutina. The Alps were now open to the rebels, but again the Gauls and Germans refused to go


Quote:
Spartacus started north; some of the Gauls and Germans separated from him and were nearly defeated by Crassus before Spartacus rescued them


The problem seem to have been one of maintaining discipline in a multinational force - some things never change!

Ah, that for explaining that. It does seems like the movie is very fitting. Now be reading the comments, I do recall the history of the slave against Rome I think for this coming weekend I will go to my DVD store and look for movie.

Yes, I really enjoyed him giving his time to "us". I am glad to have meet him. He brings a different attitude and I feel it is a good one.

It was also great to have you at the show. Thanks for taking the time and traveling to the Show. I think that your display was one of the more busy one. I hope that you will be able to come to the show next year and may it be a that show bring more customers for you. Thanks for hangning in "there".

Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' Scene 31:

CENTURION:
Where is Brian of Nazareth?!
BRIAN:
You sanctimonious ####s!
CENTURION:
I have an order for his release!
BRIAN:
You stupid ####s!
MR. CHEEKY:
Uh, I'm Brian of Nazareth.
BRIAN:
What?!
MR. CHEEKY:
Yeah, I-- I-- I'm Brian of Nazareth.
CENTURION:
Take him down!
BRIAN:
I'm Brian of Nazareth!
VICTIM #1:
Eh, I'm Brian!
MR. BIG NOSE:
I'm Brian!
VICTIM #2:
Look, I'm Brian!
BRIAN:
I'm Brian!
VICTIMS:
I'm Brian!
GREGORY:
I'm Brian, and so's my wife!
VICTIMS:
I'm Brian! I'm Brian!...
BRIAN:
I'm Brian of Nazareth!
CENTURION:
All right. Take him away and release him.
MR. CHEEKY:
No, I'm only joking. I'm not really Brian. No, I'm not Brian. I was only-- It was a joke. I'm only pulling your leg! It's a joke! I'm not him! I'm just having you on! Put me back! Bloody Romans! Can't take a joke!

I spent a little time talking to Warren but realized stupidly that we never introduced ourselves....doh!

Those two Pegasos guys were Steve Hodson (me) and Paul Rezendes...

I wish I'd seen Warren's Hollywood presentation....it is indeed a good app, fast becoming a great one. I especially like the way it can compile a presentation into native code.

If you would like I could send it to you??? If you would like to see it PM me. It is not a really great thing to see . . . I did it to show "What" Hollywood could do. I agree it is a great program and I look forward to seeing it developed. Andreas Falkenhahn has done a great job in bringing out a new program. He was also a big help in helping me getting my presentation ready for the show.

Spartius's mob had the chance to duck out and run North but HE chose to go South and you know the rest of the story! (and I believe his body was never found after the climatic battle,hence what the hell we crucify everybody just in case by the Romans)

Warren,

thanks for the presentation, a good oldschool PowerPoint style
thing...I liked what you did with the MODS. In fact I hadn't even know
Hollywood could play MODs.

Thanks....I bet you're looking forward to the OS4 PPC Native version
of Hollywood?

Steve
