The kids were a bit underwhelmed with this one.

took a while (over 2 weeks) to get started in our very shady area, but its the only seed that I've had any success with, and this pot has plenty of seed in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars try a random page - if you don't like it turn away now., 25 Jun. 2014
Exactly what you want from a book like this. Sweet filth and debauchery on every single page. Their music was of course rubbish but this book doesn't come with a CD so you can ignore that and enjoy the RocknRoll lifestyle instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars good but if anything - too sharp!, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
took a while to fit it together and sometimes the back comes off if you wind it the wrong way, but once we got the hang of it, works really well. There are 5 options for sharpness, but even the bluntest setting results in really sharp pencils, so careful with kids.

OK, but a bit flimsy. It hovers (just about) but for instance the rear fan wasn't quite powerful enough to actually move the thing along.

2.0 out of 5 stars Won't convert surround sound digital outputs, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as my surround sound amp only has one digital optical input and I needed two (for Virgin box and PS3).
Works great for Standard Definition but it didn't like the surround sound output with bluray movies or HD channels (i.e. what digital optical is there for).
It was a hopeful attempt at a cheap fix, but save your money if this is what you're attempting.

2.0 out of 5 stars fiddly, 25 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Build Your Own Robot Arm (Toy)
I think a little thought by the makers of this item would have produced a much more enjoyable experience for the builder. There are several almost identical types of screw all mixed together. Would it really have been that difficult to have one or two types of screw?
Also some of the plastic parts are a little flimsy and the connection lead to the control box didn't fit properly so had to be taped in.
Also aware the recommended age band - this is definitely 14 to adult.
An okay final product, but not really resilient or large enough to warrant keeping for any purpose and not educational nor fun enough as a construction project.


Logic3 Earphone & Microphone For iPhone
Logic3 Earphone & Microphone For iPhone
Offered by SJD Spares
Price: £9.61

1.0 out of 5 stars is it me?, 24 Feb. 2010
No criticism of the supplier (who were helpful in replacing) but I've had this product twice and the microphone doesn't work on either of them. Tried it with friends on their phones (2G and 3G) but no joy.

Also - definitely don't get if you're after noise reduction. The earphones rely on having an air column to the outside (through gauze at the back).

Shame, as I used to like logic3.

Save the Cat!: The Only Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need: The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need
by Blake Snyder
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars The best as an introduction, 18 Mar. 2009
Snyder is not trying to tell you how to create a classic all time masterpiece. That can probably not be taught. He is however giving you the rules to get a film made by the cynical risk averse "you have 2 minutes to sell me your film" hollywood execs.
The book is NOT perfect. Snyder does get a little too specific (page 11 and only page 11 or the catalyst?). Snyder does lift from other books. But taken with a pinch of salt, and saving you have to read entire other books for the couple of nuggets they contain, this book is a fantastic reference. And the classics you want to write will be even better if they keep somewhere near these structural points.

1) remember the maxim: Know the rules before you break the rules.
2) For a beginner, staring at 90-130 minutes of blank paper, the structure really helps.

Note that the sequel: "Save the cat goes to the movies" is also worth a read - even for people who don't want to write a script.
