This review is from: Leather Belt (Apparel)
Made of sturdy leather with enough pockets for the essentials, one hidden zipped pocket on the inside. And the belt was delivered within two days of my order, so I'm very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars And Ultra Violet., 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazing series, the acting is superb and the story a mixture of tragedy and comedy. I was hooked from the first and got no sleep until it was over! But I just wanted to explain about the library feature, Ultra Violet because it isn't obvious how to use it. To add Breaking Bad to the library you will need to create an account with Ultra Violet AND Sony-ultra-violet. Then you will need to link UV with Sony UV and then add the code from your box set to the Sony page. The code is found on a piece of paper in one of the 'Seasons', I found it (eventually!!!) in Season 5. Once that is done you can stream Breaking Bad (not HD...) and share it with friends you add to your library at Ultra violet.

A logical and precise description of how the positions of the sun, moon and stars change in the night sky. J Kaler keeps the maths to a minimum, without over simplifying the subject.

3.0 out of 5 stars User info., 7 Jan 2010
Other people have explained better than I about picture and sound quality; instead, I wish to describe the actual use and limitations of the MX.

The Creative MX charges from your computer via a USB connection via a small cable you may lose, but easily replace. To load the software needed to add usable video and music, locate the Zen in My Computer and follow instructions to install the software.

I REALLY DO NOT WISH TO INSTALL ANY SOFTWARE..BUT ONE HAS NO CHOICE.

You cannot drag and drop mp3 files and play them from your Zen, these must be converted into Creative's own file type by the software (several megs of it).

THIS IS NOW NORMAL DUE TO COPYRIGHT/DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT.

At the moment my Zen cannot convert BBC iplayer WMV files into playable files...some kind of DRM issue I guess? So perhaps this isn't going to be the best way to watch TV in bed :/

Next problem: The Zen has a microphone so you may use it to record sound BUT there are no speakers -so, it is a headphones only device (as far as I can see?!).

YOUTHS WITH A ZEN MX MAY NOT THERFORE ANNOY PEOPLE LIKE ME WITH R+B WHILST ON THE BUS. OVERALL, A GOOD THING.

Most of what is in the Zen software is about rummaging through your PC and allowing you to convert -transfer- into your Zen and for you to create playlists.

KIND OF ILLOGICAL, BUT OK.

My Zen does not do exactly what I wanted it to, but it is easy to use...So, if you are not fussy about tv on your screen (and this may be resolved one day I hope) but you want a box to keep your photos, home made (Vado) movies and music -the Zen does this for you and is a nice thing to own.

4.0 out of 5 stars On a futon., 5 Feb 2009
The memory foam arrived in a box that looked too small. I was convinced at first that I had been sent a single size by mistake! The foam had been doubled-over and rolled really tight...OK, so I unrolled it, put it on my bed. There was a large ridge down the center! Again...nothing to worry about, the ridge took a few hours to go- before the rest of the foam was the same height. Last night I slept on it, and it is weird (I normally sleep on a futon) It is very comfortable, quite warm- I love it! It does have a chemically smell, but that isn't so strong as to bother me, other than that this one seemed very cheap and of good quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mother of all battles.., 15 Dec 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Quake games spawned DeathMatch, a fairly mindless (LOL) game in which all one does is run around and frag other players (skill--more about that latter).

The first two Quake games have a hint of a story whilst Quake3 is a player's Valhalla, a place where DeathMatch is all.

The idea within the game is that the best players (the bots and you) have been gathered together to fight for the amusement of the Vadrigar. BTW, The Vadrigar do not figure at all in player's experience of game play.

Your experience is of playing your way through a sucession of 'maps' against bots. I have to say that the bots in Quake3Arena are fairly efficient, but not particually clever. Q3A has the option of team-play and capture the flag. Once you know the maps (erm...best if you can run them backwards ;) then you are ready to go on-line.

If no on-line games appear in the menu, your edition of Quake Gold WILL need updating (go look for the latest 'point release' to update. Think it is 1.32 now?). Q3A comes with an auto-updater, the ID software web site will give you more information.

You may only need to update if you want to play on-line. I can't remember if the Gold edition runs without the CD? If you update, you will not need to use the CD again.

Quake3Team-Arena:

Q3TA provides you with more beautiful maps, and some more games, more weapons etc. It is a poor version of Unreal Tournament (the Q3TA bots are even less intellegent than the Q3A ones) but loads of fun and will run on Windows XP and a Mac (UT wont play on my XP machine).

Q3A mods:

One of the best things about the Quake universe are the mods' . Once you have Quake3 installed and up-dated then you can download many excellent games for free. Freeze-tag and ThreeWave are both brillant.

Meanwhile, skill..Quake3 has some weird physics which can be exploited by the dedicated player. To learn the inner secrets, go get DeFrag mod.

And finally...If you buy (and you should, you really should)

--Welcome to the Quake community--
