My take on Extinction, a reasonable movie let down by horrific plot holes.

My take on Extinction beware of spoilers!

Of course, because IT systems are how spelling mistakes happen. What they're really saying here is that the original letter was horribly misspelt, and they had no decent spell-checker, which still means no one spell checked it, or even read it, before sending it out.

Rather surprised to find very little online about this printer, no YT reviews from the top three, etc. Anyone know why?

Looks like it could be fun, though personally I found it really difficult to understand the creature's speech.

It's a couple of years old, but I've just found this and it's quite fun, enjoy!

How to take a good idea, change one thing, and produce a mediocre movie. Read my review of The Rezort here.

LCD weirdness Hi all, I'm attempting to repair the outside temp/humidity sensor from our cheap weather station. The main fault appeared to be that a capacitor had one of its legs rusted through from water ingress, and that's now fixed, but it's the LCD display that's got me stumped. The display appears to have no actual connection to the board. There's a rubber strip along the top edge that appears to align with a set of contacts on the board (see highlighted areas on the photo) but the strip doesn't seem to contain any conductive elements, and there's a gap in the plastic surround between it and the LCD anyway. Has anyone seen anything like this? As I said, it's a cheap device so there's no way anything state of the art or fancy is going on here, it'll be the cheapest easiest solution for building. I'm also 100% (well 95%) certain that I didn't miss, drop or break anything during disassembly, and there's really no obvious area where something seems missing. On assembly, this strip aligns with the contacts and presses onto them (you can hopefully see where the 3 screw holes match up with the 3 in the casing), but I can't work out how that can do anything. Any ideas?

Could have been better with a little more imagination.
